The hotel was beatiful and the beach had crystalclear water. Clean and modern rooms with a good size. We had a balcony with mountainview. The room didn't have bathrobes and slippers as described. Very quiet and relaxing place. The things that we didn't enjoy was the food. The dinnerbuffet was bad! A lot of different things to choose, but the quality was not as expected. Little greek food, they didn't have moussaka, stifado or other traditional greek food for the week we spent there. The location is not great with a small baby, you have to take a taxi to Lindos, it takes about 5 min. Lindos is worth going to, gorgeous place with great restaurants and people. I loved that place!

Nice room, lovely loaction on beach although a bit of a walk to the nearest town. However, bus timetables are available from reception.
Restaurant and bar staff great, as was the housekeeping, but reception staff rude and seemed to see guests as a burden.
We were on half board, and found that the drinks were over priced. Eg a beer from Azzurro down the road was alsmost half the price of one in the hotel. We were surprised that we had to pay for drinking water at dinner and were fobidden to take our own in.
In the end we simply bought lunch from the supermarket down the road as everything so expensive in hotel. Also, late checkout was 40 euros, so we stayed in the spa until checkout.
The evening meals were nice,, but there was too much salt in some of it, so much so that it was impalatable. The grilled fish and meats were the best options to go for.
Apart from the pricing of products, this was a nice hotel.

Recently returned from a week stay at the Mareblue,Lindos bay resort, having been allocated this hotel by our travel operator (Thomas Cook)5 days before we were due to go on our holiday.(our original hotel wasnt ready for the summer)
All my wife and i can say is "wow", if only every cancellation turns out as good as this then bring it on. We arrived in the early hours, and were immediately impressed with the classy reception/lounge area, were given a twin room on the 4th floor with a lovely sea view as promised. The food in the buffet restaurant was excellent and varied ,and you would have to be a very fussy eater to not find something to your liking. The hotel was a 5 minute taxi ride from Lindos, which is wonderful as was Rhodes which we hired a car to visit. There is only the Lemon tree tavern nearby,but the entertainment at the hotel was fine, with traditional greek dancing/music. The waiters and staff were very friendly and nothing too much trouble. The beds were made every day and sheets changed every other day. I even found the time to make use of the air conditioned gym!! .Overall i would highly reccomend this hotel, and other than being slightly out of Lindos, would say it is a great hotel for a relaxing holiday, and would love to go back sometime in the future.

My friend and I recently spent 11 nights at the lovely Mareblue Lindos Bay Beach Resort & Spa situated in the bay of Vlicha, just about 3km from Lindos. We were allocated a lovely twin bedded room on the 4th floor overlooking the Aegean sea, the views from our balcony were stunning, The hotel is very classy with spacious lounges, bars, reception area, the main buffet restaurant is lovely, has an outside terrace and an excellent choice of food and beverages, There are lots of activities including a lovely spa, although we enjoyed lazy days on the beach or relaxing by the pool, and of course having a glass or two of Metaxa! All the Staff at the hotel were cheerful, friendly and most helpful, as were Manager and Assistant, who we had the pleasure of meeting whilst we were there.
Some guests thought the hotel a bit isolated, as we did after the first few days, that was until we spent a busy day in the old town of Rhodes. It was fascinating and we loved it, but it was heaven to return to our relaxing peaceful hotel in Vlicha. We visited Lovely Lindos several times, explored the fantastic Acropolis, browsed around the shops and sampled a few restaurants where we enjoyed local cuisine and local wine of course.
All in all I would highly recommend the Mareblue Lindos Bay Beach Resort and my friend and I looking forward to returning in 2011!!

Returned last night from 11 nights in Lindos staying at the Mare Blue. Could not have picked a better time to go. Hotel in a wonderful location with stunning views. The room was lovely and the maid service was fantastic. We stayed on a half board basis and the food improved during our stay. We arrived in the early hours of Sunday May 2nd and the hotel had just opened for the season. There were only about 30 people staying at the hotel but towards the end of our stay in did get busy. I enjoyed the peace and quiet and can't say enough good things about this hotel. The staff worked very hard and were very friendly. We went out twice for a meal at the Kalypso restaurant which we did not know at the time was owned by the parents of Penny the beauty therapist at the hotel. We received excellent service and the food was fabulous. Would highly recommend that you visit this rooftop restaurant in Lindos at least once. Some people thought the hotel was too far from Lindos but I did not agree. It cost 12euros for a taxi to pick us up from the hotel and take us into Lindos and it cost us 8 euros back. I guess this could add up if you went into Lindos every day. But trust me, you will be quite happy on the beach or around the pool at the hotel taking just a few visits into Lindos. We got around the cost of the taxi by sharing with two other people and this way the taxi only cost 3 euros there and 2 euros back. Lindos beach is beautiful and St. Pauls Bay is a must. We took a bus to Rhodes Town one day which was very comfortable and cost 4 euros 60. Rhodes Old Town is beautiful and worth a visit. The entertainment at the hotel was nice. One evening there was wine tasting and another night we had Greek dancers.
Overall, I hightly rate this hotel and can't wait to go back. May is the perfect time to go as the weather was very good and it would just be too hot and crowded later on in the year.

holiday in Rhodes
Moved last minute to Mareblue Bay Resort and Spa as Lindos Royal closed early for the season. This was an upgrade for us to a fantastic hotel. Very luxurious with wonderful views over the bay, free sunbeds on the beach and wonderful surroundings. This hotel is great if you are looking for a chilled out holiday and enjoy the facilities that a spa can offer. Candles in the evening around the pool making this a very romantic location. For half board the food choice is very good and you have the opportunity to eat outside overlooking the bay, pure joy for ambiance. Downside, very expensive drinks twice as much as the local bar. Nowhere to walk and out of season only just one local bar to go to. The location is only 5 mins by taxi to Lindos at 7 euros but this is about the only local place you can get to easily. In summer this may not be a problem as the days are longer and going further afield may not be an issue ,but in October it gets dark at 6pm and for the evening there are no shops or local bars to choose from so we felt very cut off. There is also only one bus per day that stops outsde the hotel which again would not be an issue if you hired a car.


Helpful tips for holidaying here
Lemon Tree bar just 50 metres from the hotel is a great place for a change. Good bar prices and a friendly atmosphere. If you travel to Lindos there are two beaches one big and one small. If you go to the small beach, the last bar/cafe before the sea, can't remember the name but it begins with "s" is fantastic value. Toastee with salad and chips under 3 euros and was lovely.
If you walk out of the hotel and turn right, there is a carpark where the taxis wait and clearly display fixed prices. If you book through the hotel they charge at least 3 euros to book for you.

We spent a fabulous week at the Lindos Bay Hotel at the beginning of October. We were staying there to attend our daughter's wedding and have a nice break ourselves.
It was obvious that it was the end of season, there were no queues for food etc. There were no young children and the whole place had an air of calm. We found the rooms and the service very good, the food excellent, being able to choose quantity and type easily. The staff were very pleasant, efficient and friendly too. Our experience was a complete pleasure.
