“Life is but a dream...”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

I'm quick to appreciate vacations of all sorts, but Melenos Lindos was magical. Walking down to it through the web of stone pathways was just the beginning of a mystical getaway. The resort is steps from the colorful shops in Lindos villages and a few steps more in either direction to the beautiful beach below or the Acropolis above, although it will take some motivation to leave the lovely setting they've created here. Access to everything, yet tucked away in a quiet, romantic corner that feels untouched by the world around it.

Maria greeted us as though she'd been eagerly anticipating our arrival, walking us through the resort - a lovely labyrinth of stonework, grape vines, shady trellises and bougainvillea - and showing us to our unbelievable suite. The rooms are like movie sets, recalling Old World romance, shades of Turkey and Morocco in the alcoves and tiled ceilings, lovely antique pieces and soft lighting - certainly one of the most romantic places I've ever stayed. And, of course, all the comforts of organic bedding, robes and slippers to add to our enjoyment of the decadent space. Fresh fruit and a bottle of wine awaited us as well.

We dined in the resort's amazing restaurant, on fresh fish and a linguini with chili pepper, lemon and fig that blew us away. Our dinner was served by a handsome, linen-clad waiter named Akis (sounds like "a kiss" spoken in exotic accent with your best bedroom voice) and the delicious complementary breakfast in the morning was served by Aphrodite herself (no joke, this was actually her name). Service impeccable. Every single person, from the lovely gentleman who opens the umbrella on your private terrace to the woman who places the chocolates in your room, is delightful.

If you need a little extra pampering, Lindos Spa is steps away and Vanessa will make your bliss complete.

We weren't planning a honeymoon, but that's exactly what you get when you stay here. If the opportunity presents itself, the gods and goddesses are smiling on you - don't miss it!!

Room Tip: We loved room 10, tucked around a quiet corner, but you really can't go wrong.

Melenos really is the most magical place we have ever stayed. Our wedding was perfect from start to finish. We held our wedding ceremony in the garden and our reception in the main restaurant. And nothing was too much trouble for the melenos staff. We stayed for two nights in the most beautiful suite with a terrace that overlooks the sea. We are well travelled and this is by far the most beautiful place we have ever seen and is now very special to us. For anyone looking to get married or to honeymoon, to treat yourself or just holiday....this is perfect and is heaven on earth. Thankyou everyone at the melenos so so much for the most amazing stay and thankyou for making our wedding so special. Already looking to come back before the end of summer :)

The staff at Melenos were incredible. They organised everything for us, from hire cars to booking a ferry for us in Rodos Old Town. Even the cleaning staff were friendly and helpful. The room was amazing! Spacious, clean and beautiful. We stayed 4 nights and didn't want to leave! The location is perfect and the restaurant is also wonderful. Breakfast with a view was delicious and plentiful. It really was a slice of paradise and we will be back.

Lindos, Rhodes was the first Little town we head too after almost 18hrs of Flight and transit.
As we had arrange transportation with the hotel prior to our arrival ( Its a MUST, especially its about almost 45min car ride) thus we were well taken care from the moment we arrive till we reached the hotel.

Melenos Lindos Hotel is located pretty secluded on the other side of the town facing the west side of the sea, thus arrangement is better made with the hotel prior arrival is essential.
The staff whom greeted us at the main town hall was very warm and showed us area where we can wonder on our owned. As the hotel is located mid way to Lindos Acropolis, it saved us half the journey up the next day when we explore the area.

The interior design is pretty similar to Moorish / Turkish style making a home away from home. Only problem we face is the bathroom, where we are not used to it, as it is pretty small when you bath, there is no proper coverage, thus water kept spilling out and wet the whole bathroom.

The bedroom is comfortable to hold up to 4 pax, as we had book the senate room. The entrance even had grapes hanging over really thrill us.

The staff are so friendly greeted us and put up the best smile whenever we had eye contact and always ready to help us in a way or 2.

If time permit we hope to return, but probably not during summer, as its relatively hotter in Lindos then in old town Rhodes.

This absolutely delightful hotel is the maze without the Minotaur. (Wrong island, I know.). With its stairs and corridors that make it seem cobbled together, it has wonderful rooms, fantastic views and excellent food. The owner and his staff are very friendly and go out of their way to meet their guests’ needs.

The Melenos Lindos is perched on a hill a 5-7 minute walk from the main area of Lindos and, therefore, away from the hubbub. Also, it puts one about ½ way to the acropolis of Lindos, making the trek easier.

Staying at the Melenos Lindos gives one options: using it as a base of operations to see all of the Island of Rhodes, using it as the central point to explore the town of Lindos, or using it as a place to sit in the breeze, read a book or watch the boats and swimmers in the water many feet below your perch.

WiFi is included in the room rate, a sensible policy that should be adopted universally by hotels; and it works well throughout the property. The owner also works to limit the environmental impact of his facility.

Thank you for your kind comment. I should agree with your comment for the wifi connection as it is indeed a need that has to be taken under consideration as one of the priorities of the customer and provide this with no charge.

Without doubt the Melenos has got to be one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in!!! There is not one fault to be had with it.

We arrived in Lindos via bus from Rhodes Old Town. We're picked up in a tiny van and went through a brilliant little ride through the streets of Lindos, following donkeys and with inches to spare either side of each little street!

On arrival we got the amazing news that we had been upgraded!! Our room / well I say room - more like an apartment was incredible!! Completely blown away. The rooms are gorgeous - the beds are these huge mattresses on wooden mezzanine - stunning!!

It had a beautiful bathroom with lovely stone floor and unit - the shower was a fantastic rain forest one.

But the best part of it all was the terrace - wow!! This was a gorgeous white stone terrace which overlooked Lindos Bay. And topped with the complementary champagne really did make it a completely brilliant experience - all within 10 mins of arriving!!

There's a travel review in the rooms which describe the Melenos as a village in a village and this is a bang on description. There's lots of little houses / apartments connected by little streets to the restaurant and breakfast area - there's also a private gate to the beach.

On the first night we had dinner at their restaurant which is rated the no 1 on TA. We had a lovely table overlooking the bay and watching the sun set. The service was brilliant - couldn't fault it. I had the shrimp starter which were tiny little prawns cooked in soft shells and a delicious sauce followed by the seafood spaghetti (that everyone raves about on TA)- it was ridiculously tasty but would definitely like more for 30 euros! My boyfriend had the sea bass and it was a delicious fish.

Breakfast was lovely. Lots of bread and jams and then your choice of lots of things! Definitely have yogurt with honey - it's so lovely. And the poached eggs with bacon are pretty darn good too!!

There's nothing not to like about here and I can't recommend it highly enough. Don't think I would stay anywhere else if I went back to Lindos.

Me and my wife married at St Dimitrios Chapel opposite Melenos on 28th May 2014 followed by our wedding reception at Melenos. Everything about the day was perfect from the food (Best food in Lindos), service, view and accommodation. The nicest hotel weve stayed in and all our guests were very impressed. Everything went so smoothly from the drinks in the Garden Lounge to the meal on the roof top restaurant. Thank you to Mr Melenos, Maria and the team for making our day so special.
