We stayed at the Lindos Sun for a week in mid-May..This is a clean, basic hotel, an easy 15-20 minute walk away from the village of Lindos (pavement all the way). For the price we paid, we were expecting a fairly basic hotel, but were pleasantly surprised. Although the rooms are indeed basic, with many rooms having (creaky) twin beds pushed together rather than doubles, they were immaculately clean, had air con, a mini fridge and good shower. All the rooms have a decent size balcony.
The pool and bar area are top notch- the hotel was reasonably busy when we stayed but there were always sun loungers and brollies available in both the sun and the shade. There is a lovely relaxing atmosphere around the pool. The pool bar serves great snacks and lunch during the day. The bar 'Muses' opens by the restaurant in the evenings and serves a variety of cocktails and drinks. Cocktail quality varied significantly depending on which staff member did the making!
From reading other reviews on TripAdvisor, we had been a little concerned that the food included in the half board package would be a bit lacklustre, but again we were pleasantly surprised. Breakfast is a standard continental affair, with some hot options and plenty of pastries and cereal.
Dinner had plenty of good salad options, always one fish dish, one potato dish, a meat dish and some rice or pasta. I wouldn't say it was restaurant standard, but it felt like there would be at least something there each night that would suit everyone, and the quality was good. I have a nut allergy and the chef was on hand most nights to discuss the dishes if I had any questions.
Our one criticism would be that we didn't really feel the dinner buffet gave many authentic Greek dishes (other than the salads) , and we would have welcomed more of a Greek influence in the meat and fish.
Staff were friendly and helpful throughout- we were able to organisea room change when we were initially allocated a mountain view room rather than the sea view we had booked, and they were also able to organise a late checkout for us, which was really valuable on our last day as our flight wasn't until late in the evening.
Would definately recommend as a no frills, relaxing hotel.
