This was our first stay at the lindos veiw after it had been recommended to us. On arrival we were checked in quickly and soon in our room.
the cleaners were fab and always gave fresh towels when needed.
the management and bar/resturant staff were so friendly and realy wanted to do all they could to make our holiday special.
the breakfasts and meals in the snack bar were very yummy and you can have english favourites or try greek food if you wish to.
the resturant upstairs was amazing with veiws of the acropolis and lovely waiters aswell as being some of the nicest food we ate whilst on holiday.
the lady that makes the cocktails is fab and you wont find a mojito as nice in lindos.
There were greek nights and bbq's and also kareoke and a comic singer to entertain if you wished and all good fun.
the supermarket down the road stocks all the bits and bobs you might need aswell as inflatables and a small selection of gifts.
the walk into lindos takes about 15 mins and is down hill , we never walked back up and always got a taxi from the square who were all friendly and worth every cent of the €4 .
Once in lindos theres lots of lovely shops and resturants , tavernas and bars .
The beach is down a steep hill and once there is gorgeous with boats to hire , diving, snorkling and bars, resturants ect... but the hill back up is a killer and theres no other way back up but to walk , that is the only thing that we didnt enjoy about our holiday and we only managed the beach once , which is a shame.
a dinner for 2 adults 2 kids with drinks on average is €40-€70 depending on where you eat and if you have starters / deserts ect...
the cheapeast place we ate was marios and was our favourite meal , €32 for all of us with drinks and mario was lovely.
deffinately worth a visit.

if you are reading this yannis and staff at the lindos veiw we want to thank you for a lovely holiday.

We stayed here 10th-24th Aug as our first family holiday with our 13month old son. We stayed here in 2007 & then returned in 2010 to get married but stayed at Lindos Memories.

We chose this hotel due to us loving it in 2007 & also we knew it has such a great family atmosphere - and we were not disappointed!

FLIGHTS, ARRIVAL & ROOM:
We booked & flew with Thomas Cook & all went smoothly. Not a lot of room on the flight but nothing new there, we changed our boy in the toilets on way out & was cramped but manageable. We arrived at LV at around 10pm & check in was swift & straight to our room, no. 525. Now lets talk about this whole new vs old rooms issue which seems to upset so many people... We did the whole emailing the hotel in advance but this seems to have little effect on which room you are given as we did end up in an 'older' room. But it was perfectly acceptable, clean & spacious. Fridge with mini freezer worked well & so did kettle. Bathroom was amazing with a large walk in shower (we think the bathroom had indeed been renovated). We spent very little time in our room anyway, with an hour first thing while our boy had his breakfast, then a hour or two while we got ready to go out, and then a few late evenings spent sat on balcony playing cards with a mythos :) Don't be too concerned with room allocation as we didn't let it spoil our holiday ;)

HOTEL:
The Lindos View is lovely, people are always cleaning & gardeners always trimming & maintaining the amazing grounds. All staff were very pleasant & fussed over our little boy - children are loved & made very welcome throughout Lindos! WiFi is free in the hotel lobby but you can get it on some of the beds & tables/chairs closest to the building. Aircon cost an extra 100euro for the 2weeks and to keep the room on the last day till 6pm cost us 32.

POOLS & HOTEL FOOD/DRINK:
The two pools are both clean with plenty of sunbeds. We spent most of our days round the rear pool which seemed to be more for families plus there was the baby pool there. Reserving beds with towels is present at this hotel but beds where still free by 11am most days round the rear pool. However if you did have your favourite spot especially around the front pool then it's towels down by 7-7:30am! Food at the hotel was always great, we ate some breakfasts plus some lunches there. Drinks during the days can rack up tho so I advise visit the shop 300yrds away and buy drinks for round the pool from there!

BEECHES:
We only had one beech day as we are pool people so we spent it at St.Pauls Bay & it was beautiful! Sunbeds are 4euro each, we got there at 8am ish & only half dozen people were there so had pick of the beds - but by 9am ish it was full so if you want a good spot get there early. We ate at the Resturant there, Tambakio & was lovely food & reasonably priced.

BARS & RESTURANTS:
We didn't spend much time in bars due to our 13month old but one place we always visit when in Lindos is The Courtyard Bar! Best cocktails in Lindos & the owner Jack is 'the best'!! As for Resturants well you are spoilt for choice really & we ate in a different place every night! Our favourites were Med-East, Caesars, Odyessia & Tambakio. Prices for 2adults & child ranged from 40-70euro dependant on how many & what drinks you had.

NEGATIVES:
The only negative we have is the cost. We took 1500euro with us & drew out another 200, and spent the lot! We didn't buy many presents, but its quite easy here to spend 100-150euro per day on breakfast, lunch & dinner plus drinks, snacks & ice creams! For the over-all cost of this holiday we could have gone to an all inclusive in the Caribbean, and still had a grand to spare! But we love Lindos & it's charm! Done it 3times in last 6years now so time to try some new places. We will definitely return but maybe not for a few years.

OUR HINTS & TIPS:
--Take a small cool bag & a couple of freezer blocks. Freeze the blocks overnight & use them to keep your drinks cool through the day! Keep it in the shade though.

--Buy cans/bottles from the shop for poolside drinks, much cheaper! Also freeze your bottles of water & they will slowly defrost through the day giving you nice cold water all day.

--For traveling with a baby we found best things were: clip on umbrella for pushchair. Buy a lightweight foldable stroller as its easier to manage through the streets. We used factor 50+ for babies applied every 2hrs & he never burnt, even with swimming at mid day, he still got a lovely tan though! Sun hats. And plenty of water & juice. We loaded an iPad with his favourite episodes of Peppa pig etc & used a rubber case - this kept him happy when needed & saved us from some board tantrum moments!

--August is HOT if you have small children! Next time will try in June or September.

Me and my husband arrived this morning in the small hours, upon arrival they guy at the desk was lovely and showed us to our room, we had been allocated room 21, we choose this hotel for our honeymoon because of the great reviews and so far so good, the only slight,disappointment is that the hotel had,been made aware this was our honeymoon by the travel agent we,booked through and so far this has not been acknowledged. . However the room is nice, big too and the location is great however if you have mobility problems I would advise to stay in another resort!!! The walk down through the,winding cobbled streets is lovely however the walk back up is,a,killer think ill have legs to die for after my ten days,are up!!

Just got back from a 2 week stay at the Hotel Lindos View. A really nice place very clean and well looked after and maintained.
The cleaners were in every day, and good quality towels were changed every other day. The waiters are very good at the snack bar, and in the restaurant. Only person we felt didn't fit in, was the older English woman who served behind the bar in the evenings.
The food was good value and very filling, had a couple of breakfasts, a couple of lunch's and a meal in the restaurant upstairs. The food at the Greek night on a Monday was extremely good.
Will be looking forward to going back in the future without a doubt.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room. Ask for block 8, which is as the back of the complex. But there isn't...

Stayed for 10 nights with wife and 8 year old son August, emailed (not begged) if possible to recieve a refurbished room to which the manager said would email me back a few days before depature with an answer, 4 days before we left we recieved email to say we had and on arrival we were blown away by the room thankyou Yannis.

Both pools are sparkling clean with loads of sunbeds, massage lady you have to use, rented car through hotel fab service, Lindos is amazing, please book this hotel its the best in Greece we have ever had 5 star all the way.

I've been booking holidays for me & my hubby for 25 years now - I can count this accurately because it's our 25th wedding anniversary year - and we've always managed to avoid those 'airport' documentary style cock-ups...until now. I don't wand to relive the hystetics, recriminations, raised voices and fainting fits which resulted from MISSING THE FLIGHT...sufficient to say it was my fault and we were very lucky to get another flight out to Rhodes on the same day. Sufficient to say we were very stressed. Sufficient to say I expected to arrive at the Lindos View at lunch-time by coach...and did not imagine having to pick up a hire car at 10pm and drive myself to the hotel in the dark....completely sober, starving hungry and still shaking.
The hotel receptionist was lovely and shook her head so sympathetically when we explained our travel disaster...and the fact that one week's spending money had now gone on buying new flights. We hoped this wouldn't matter but, with Lindos being one of the most fearfully expensive places I've been to in Greece, it did.
The cricks in my neck and the nervous ticks started to go when we saw our room - okay so it didn't have a jacuzzi bath or a view of the Acropolis...but it did have some nice daisy flowers woven around some yellow netting which made me smile; and that was saying something. I was even happier that, even though it was late, we were able to get some sarnies, chips and wine before bed. It was the last 'bought' meal we had at the Lindos View...but we did have a daily breakfast and boy - that was fab' (we were on B&B and we can all heartily recommend those morning feasts and the lovely fella who served them).
I'm going to confess that my review of the hotel isn't as rounded as some; we used the Lindos View as a base only; we kept the hire car and explored the island every day. And here's a thing. We went to Pefkos, Afandou, Tassos, Kalithea, Agnithi beach, Anthony Quinn Beach and Rhodes town itself to see the wonderful archeological museum (sited in the former Knight of St John hospital) but didnt set foot on a beach in Lindos once.
I know this sounds crazy - those beaches are beautiful - but that bay is like a giant magnet for all the tourists on the island and it used to make me smile that, as the hundred or so buses headed into Lindos, we were heading the other way to deserted beaches up and down the coast. So please, please - get a car and go and see stuff.
Loved packing up at night to get back to the hotel for an evening swim. Then back for a quick change and a cocktail (the best in Lindos by miles and the cheapest) and then off into Lindos for an evening meal.
Much is said about the gorgeous cobbled streets etc of Lindos and the enchanting restaurants. We tried a few and sat on rooftops and tried not to mind that we were over-charged for average Greek food prettied-up with a swirl of balsamic vinegar and other nonsense. Unlike other Greek islands...you'll not find much in the way of complimentary desserts/fruit or after-meal shots of ouzo/schnapps either which was missed.
Enjoyed the hotel's karaoke and Greek night - we didn't eat on those nights but the BBQ smell was divine.
Must, must say the staff were never less then friendly and gracious. They do a grand job and yes, some of the drinks are a little expensive but do as we did - go to the big supermarket on the outskirts of town (not the one in Lindos) and stock up on fizz and a bottle of Baileys and have a snifter on your balcony.
On the final day - our 14 days seemed like five - we left in a large party and most of them were sobbing and vowing to see each other, the hotel and Lindos again very soon.
I wish I could say the same...I loved the hotel, its view of lindos will stay in my memory forever but, sorry, I just didn't like Rhodes as much as some of the other Greek islands.
The unforgettable highlight - other than Rhodes town - was the taverna on Tassos beach which - irony indeed - we didn't discover until our penultimate day. We had a fresh fish feast with home-made chips, garlic bread (complimentary) and ouzo (also free) aubergine and bean side dishes and posh wine in a bottle and it came to 44euro. We went on our last day as well - and had the same. Oh, I wish I could have the same today...my Ryvita and low-fat cheese spread doesn't really cut it.
Would I recommend this hotel to my friends? Yes, without a doubt. Would I recommend Lindos?
Well, yes, but only to the rich ones

Room Tip: If a room is important to you...do email the manager and explain why.
