Reviewed 9 September 2012

This was perfect for couples and people wanting a laid back relaxing holiday.The owner Antonio and is son Rafael were polite and easy going. There is a snack bar on the grounds and the food is really nice,especialy Antonios greek salads and homemade bread :) The studio was clean and tidy,and just a lovely basic place to stay. The beach and village is about a ten minute walk away but i enjoyed the walk,we would defo go again!!

If your looking for a quiet relaxing place to stay for your holidays then this is it.We have never stayed anywhere as peaceful and quiet as this.The owner and his son were always very polite and helpful,the apartments were spotlessly clean,the pool was also very clean and the whole hotel in general was very well maintained.

It's a long walk from the town centre,but i like a good walk especially after eating a meal,and didn't mind walking the steep hill from Lindos every night back to the apartments,however it may be a bit too much for some people who may prefer to use one of the taxis you can find in the little square near the town centre,it's a small fee of 5 euro's back to the apartments.

Theirs a small shop just a short walk from the apartments should you require any groceries,but we found the store further along near the main road to be slightly cheaper.It's not often we say we would return to anywhere we have stayed before,but i think we will definitely return to the Rafael studios one day.

We staied here for 3 nights,in August.
The hotel is well manteined and the pool area is lovely and very clean, really good to relax after walking in Lindos town.
The position is perfect:close to everything you need but far from the crowd of the busy Lindos centre.
The studio we had was cleaned every day and the owners were very helpfull and cats friendly.
We will surely be back !!!

Just got back from staying here for 5 nights. Great location, lovely and peaceful - have no faults at all. The owner Antonio always said hello and was very accommodating. The walk down into LIndos is much better than the walk back up! I would definitely stay here again.

We booked these apartments about 3 weeks before we left and were pleasantly surprised by how good they were for the money we paid! The pool is excellent, everything is clean; the only downside is the aircon......you need air con in the summer but it was so pathetic!! The only downside though! The location is good and having the cats is so cute! Say hello to them and the donkeys!!

Great location, apartment and pool area. Really tranquil and the reason for that is largely the deliberate absence of kids so not the place for you if you have a few in tow, which unfortunately for me means I would go elsewhere. Otherwise though, a great place if you are a couple or on your own - would really highly recommend it. Air con is an essential though - take it from someone who thought they could do without!

Room Tip: I enjoyed the ground floor room which was located at the front and end of the block - it provided a...

Just got back and had a great time. The Rafael Studios are tranquil. No traffic noise, no kids screaming....just the sounds of water trinkling, crickets buzzing and the odd goat in the distance. The pool area is excellent with plenty of space and a good sized pool for swimming. The studios are also a good size with a kitchen area, decent bathroom and large bedroom. Antonio is such a nice guy, not intrusive in anyway. He just lets you get on with things (its your holiday after all) but if you help or just fancy a chat he is a really friendly. If I had a slight critisism it is that the towels were not changed often enough for my liking. But overall for the price we paid the Rafael Studios are certainly excellent value and have a lovely relaxing setting.

The bus stop is about 5 minutes walk away and a super market is even closer. Lindos beach is about 15/20 minutes walk but you can get the shuttle bus back up the hill to make things easier in the heat. Lindos has many good restuarants and bars to choose form.
