The hotel is very nice and close to the sea. Rooms are big and bath is nice.
We loved very much everything there: service (really helpfull and kind), food (great!!) , breackfast (which is gorgeous and rich).
We enjoyed there every day of our stay: we was looking for an accomodation quiet and beautifoul and this hotel satisfied us in everything.
If we will come back to Rhodos, we will surely choose this hotel once again!

Lovely hotel, good location for us. We love Lindos and have stayed in the village itself before but this year we wanted the extras you get with staying in a hotel, pool, air con, breakfast etc. didn't want to be doing the dishes on holiday. In the end, went the whole hog and booked with dinner as well. Hotel was very nice and had obviously just been done up. It was very 'Greek', which suited us as we return to Greece year after year. When we were there, many of the guests were Italian but that was ok and like watching a fashion show.

Room nice (it had a fridge we had not expected), bathroom nicer but the best thing was the view, which was just fabby, especially in the evening. Hotel had a big pool, very quiet, relaxing. It was located a little bit out of the village but we just walked in, sometimes during the day or for a drink at night, taxi back. Food was good, more international than Greek. Staff were all very pleasant and had a good laugh with a Scottish girl who worked there.

Favourite places in Lindos are Gelo Blu, Agostinos, Icon bar and Museum bar.

Will definitely holiday in the Lindos Sun again. It gave us place we love but with more comfortable accomodation than we have found in the village.

This hotel was the worst I have ever been to. The management were so unhelpful and aggressive. They lied about buses, gave preferential treatment to other guests and even laughed in our faces.

The bar was closed early, leaving you sitting outside in the dark. This applied to us for our check-out at 5am when we were expected to sit in sun loungers outside in the dark most of the night.

I would strongly advise people not to go there and cannot believe that the hotel is still in business.

Food awful, rooms basic, location (out of town) staff indifferent. Once in Lindos town it was with a sense of dread that one knew we would be returning to the Lindos Sun Hotel, there are no out of hours
facilities, if you are still there after 11.30 at night then you must
be in bed 'cos the reception area is locked, the lights turned off and there is no way to get an evening hot drink( or in fact any drink!!!) Please dont go there...

In the past there have been many complaints about the food. But the kitchen is now run by English chef Daniele and her friend and they are extremely good. They provide eclectic contemporary food with an emphasis on healthy eating: lots of interesting salads etc..

The pool and the rooms and everything else is very clean and proper.

The staff are friendly and helpful.

On the down side, there is a sewer nearby that sometimes creates a bit of a stench.

The Lindos Sun is located about 1.5 kilometeres outside of Lindos on the Pefkos/Lardos Road, nestling beneath a hill of volcanic rock. It only takes about 25 minutes to walk into Lindos from the hotel, but it is uphill and fairly rigerous. A taxi ride costs 7 euros, bookable from reception and 5 euros to return from Lindos Square. The Lindos Sun is a pretty hotel, though it has seen better days and really could do with a bit of TLC, as parts of it look quite shabby now. There are a lot of things to commend it however, not least the spectacular views of the so called Naverone Cliffs (which featured in the film the Guns of Naverone) and which are a lovely sight first thing in the morning and throughout the day as the light and shadows on them changes. The grounds are beautiful, mature and well planted with geraniums, hibiscus, lemon and quince trees and more exotic flora. There is also an excellent swimming pool, deep and long, though not really suitable for non or nervous swimmers as the steps into the pool have been roped off for 'health and safety' reasons to prevent slips and the gradient from the shallow end to deeper water is quite steep. The rooms are fairly standard for Greece, quite small with a small bathroom and we found the (twin) beds pretty uncomfotable with the bedding and towels almost threadbare. We were half-board and the food on this occasion was first rate with a good range of food, a mix of buffet style and fixed menu evening meals all of which were very good and well presented. Prospective visitors need to be aware of the fact that around half of the rooms in the hotel are taken up by a travel company catering for solo travellers. This group of 'singles' tended to keep to themselves, eating together on designated tables, and sitting together on the terrace each evening and so forth. Therefore, there is not much opportunity for guests outside this group to engage or socialise and this can feel quite isolating. If there is a real criticism however, it is the lack of a proper hotel bar. The pool bar shuts at 5 pm and at 6.30 the bar service transfers to a kind of gazebo on the terrace at the front of the hotel. This closes at 11pm when presumably guests are expected to go to bed. This was a big complaint, particularly as there is no entertainment in the hotel and not all guests wanted to trek into Lindos every night. The staff themselves were very friendly but being mainly Italian communication was something of a problem as little English (or Greek) is spoken or understood, though it was fun trying. Finally, because the hotel is outside of Lindos shopping for even the most basic of items, such as a daily newspaper, means a trip into the village, or to the market in the nearest hotel - about 15 minutes away.

DO go to this hotel if: You are travelling solo with the singles group; you want a quietish location with spectacular views, don't mind a brisk walk or taxi ride to find some nightlife and don't mind basic accommodation

DON't go to this hotel if you are travelling as a couple or independent traveller and want a holiday socialising with other guests, want high standards of accommodation or facilities on your doorstep or are looking for a lively hotel with entertainment

I stayed at this hotel 2 years ago and there have been many improvements.

The pool was so clean and excellent size for swimming in, the 2 pool bar staff were friendly and made great snadwiches. They have a new english couple doing the food and the dinners were amaazing. Lots of choice, hot and well presented.

The bedrooms have a great view and no problems with hot water compared to 2 years ago.

Lindos as always is a great place with many bars and restaurants.
