“Melenos Lindos the epitimy of the perfect retreat”
Reviewed 7 July 2010

Stayed at Melenos Lindos for the first two nights of our Honeymoon and could not have wished to saty in a better place.

The location - Fabulous
The staff - Could'nt have been more helpful
The rooms - Perfect
The restaurant - The most picture perfect views you could wish for and wonderful food

The village of Lindos is untocuhed by time, imagine picture postcard greece and you're imagining Lindos. The Melenos Lindos is a wonderful addittion to the village. In keeping with it's surroundings and boasting the best views in the village, you could'nt ask for more.

Why wait to die to experience heaven! The Melenos Lindos hotel is a Greek sea-side destination itself and it happens to be surrounded by the most charming ancient village on Rhodes Island. Narrow, winding streets transport you, via a hotel cart that will pick you up in the town square or donkey, to a high spot on the mountain where you enter paradise. Owner, Michalis Melenos, is a warm host at his hotel, justifiably rated among the top small luxury hotels in the world. The atmosphere is exclusive, elegant and ethnic but is not pretentious, ostentatious, stuffy or tedious. The rooms have spectacular views and private access to the beach and Mediterranean below. Each spacious room is exquisitely appointed with antiques and art, and have private and spacious terraces. The bathroom - it is wonderful! Room service is delightful. The restaurant, inspired Greek cuisine with spectacular views of the water. You could happily spend your holiday enjoying the sanctity of your luxury quarters. But, you will venture out to see the many worthwhile historic and cultural sights. It is great to base yourself here to always come back after touring the island. The Melenos Lindos is such a lovely place that I could easily entertain the possibility of going back just to stay here.

My husband and I spent three nights at the Melenos Lindos as part of a two week tour of Turkey and Greece. It was one of the highlights of our trip! The location, layout, decor, rooms, service, and food were all superb. It is one of those very special hotels that combine luxury with a more laid back, personal feel. Not too stuffy. Even in just a short time we were able to relax and feel pampered.

As for the hiccups: we had to change our travel plans from Sa-Tu to F-M and the hotel was booked for our new first night, but they accommodated us in the apartments across town (5 min walk). Not as luxurious, but the hotel staff still made sure that our arrival and transition went smoothly. Hiccup #2: the taxi driver went to the wrong ferry port, thinking we were arriving from Turkey as originally planned. It did make for a stressful arrival, but these things happen when traveling, changing routes last minute, etc.

After checking in at the apartments we were immediately escorted over to the hotel for dinner, and proceeded to eat there three nights in a row -- which is saying a lot from two foodies from San Francisco! During our (too) short visit my husband hiked up to the acropolis while I got a Thai massage; we hung out at the beach; strolled through town; and relaxed around the hotel. I cannot say enough about the beautiful antiques that adorn this lovely hotel. I loved being there and didn't want to leave.

Unfortunately we had to, at 5:00 in the morning! The staff was more than accommodating of our early check out time. They sent us on our way with breakfast and sandwiches for the road. Our bags were picked up right on time and we were taken to the square where a taxi was waiting. It was sad to say goodbye to this very special place.

This is a wonderful place to stay. We stayed for a week and had a perfectly relaxing time. The location is perfect - minutes walk from the centre of Lindos and to the sea. We had a spacious room - cool and relaxing - with a private terrace where we could read our books looking out to sea. We had expected to eat out - but the hotel restaurant was so good you didn't want to miss out on the opportunities provided by the daily menu. We even did a cookery course with the Chef - amazing! The staff were all incredibly friendly. They were very attentive and professional - always willing to help and offer a smile. Even the flowers were carefully looked after. We loved it - we will return and we were made to feel like part of the family. A perfectly relaxing break.

We stayed 10 days at the Melenos Lindos: it is a very nice place and a competent and very professional team is running it well.
The food is truly exceptional .
The location is very nice.
Maybe Greece has some temporary problems, but nothing of this transpired at all in Rhodos or in Lindos. So : just GO!

This is by far the best place to stay in Lindos. Location, location, location. Everything you could possibly want if you're not self catering, plus The View!. No need to eat anywhere else either, since the chef here has got it completely sussed. The best fresh local ingredients simply cooked, different menu every day. The beach (with tavernas) is a few minutes stroll away. We're definitely coming back.

This is a very small and intimate hotel - 12 rooms. The staff are exceptionally helpful and kind and go well beyond the call of duty - e.g. there was a taxi strike the day we left but they took us to the airport themselves. The food is excellent and served on a very fine terrace overlooking the sea. The indoor restaurant is also lovely - the whole hotel is filled with beautiful things from the collection of the owner. The bedrooms are furnished in cedar and the beds are extremely comfortable. It's very quiet too, for sleeping. Hotel is 2 minutes' walk from the beach. Definitely highly recommended.
