We booked the Lindos Sun Hotel for a stay in Lindos for my cousins wedding (July 8th-15th, 2012)
Firstly I felt the location wasn't as I thought... If you search for the Lindos Sun on google maps.. It appears to be very central in Lindos... This is not so... The hotel is located between Lindos and Pefkos. On the bay after St Paul's. It was about a 15-20 minute walk into Lindos town which we didn't mind and a taxi from Lindos was about 6 euros.
The hotel was very clean, a little basic but to be expected in Greece. The rod were a generous size with large balconies or terraces. I had requested a high floor with a sea view and was delighted to be allocated one of the few 2nd floor rooms overlooking the sea (rooms 102 and 101) the only down side to this was the absence of a lift so we had to carry our cases up 2 flights of stairs.
The pool was very pleasant, and the pool bar was a god-send! We also made use of billing our snacks and drinks to our room bill which was great!
The biggest let down, I felt, was the food. I'm a great lover of Greek food, and I was very disappointed. Both breakfast and dinner were a self-serve buffet. It seemed that the hotel tried very hard to please all nationalities, and local delicacies were very few and far between... Breakfast was a very poor choice of cooked... All sat in grease... Cold meats and cheese, cereals with milk and bread along with toast, bread, preserves and pastries... A good selection but none very appetising. Dinner again gave a good choice but not great quality... There was normally a pizza/ pasta dish, meat dishes with chips along with a good salad selection... The one time that moussaka was on the menu it was very dry and crumbly... A total disappointment... In fact even though we'd paid for it.. We skipped dinner on our last 2 nights so we could go to restaurants in lindos to have real local Greek food! I can recommend the lindos restaurant and also the ice bar!
In short of was a good value break, but I wouldn't stay here again. I would probably go self catering or B&B to make use of the excellent value restaurants in town.
