We planned this trip to Lindos for our anniversary and we wanted a peaceful (mostly child free) location with stunning views and this is exactly what we got. As we had read on previous reviews that the balconies are not that private, I emailed in advance to request a room with some privacy and this request was met with a garden level junior suite with views over the sea and enclosed terrace - perfect. It was lovely to be greeted by a bottle of chilled bubbly, red rose and heart shaped sweets on the king size bed. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean.
This hotel can be difficult to get around during the day due to all the steps but the best advice is to get to know the lifts and use these when it is particularly hot. The walk down to the beach is well worth the trip and you will be greeted by plenty of sunbeds, wide sandy bay and shallow clear blue sea. At the end of a long day on the beach it is easy to walk down to the Lemon Tree Taverna or back to the hotel beach bar and small pool to finish off the day.
We would agree with other reviews that the dining room is on the small size and could be crowded but we always avoided the busy times and had dinner late which meant a better choice of tables and a more relaxed meal. The staff in the restaurant are fantastic and once they know that you prefer a window table they will always go out of their way to find you just the right table. The food in the restaurant is excellent with plenty of choice and freshly cooked regardless of what time you have your meal, also the wine is very reasonable and have paid much more in previous similar hotels. We would also recommned that you at least once swap dinner for lunch in the a la carte restaurant and take a taxi into Lindos - try the Kalypso restaurant and drinks in the Captains House.
It is difficult to believe that anyone could find this hotel to be anything other than a good 4 star with the best hotel team you are likely to ever come across in a stunning location with a two minute taxi ride to Lindos. The Lindos Mare is a unique hotel which has soul and ideally suited to couples wanting a peaceful week.
