Reviewed 11 August 2012

We stayed here in a studio apartment for two weeks. The rooms don't have much furniture - just 2 beds, kitchenette, wardrobe and chest of drawers (as is often the case in Greece) but are very, very clean, spacious and comfortable with a good sized shower room and a good sized balcony area which overlooks the lovely gardens. The staff are brilliant - Theo is extremely good at keeping people at the bar until the early hours (4.40am one morning!!). Snacks are served at the pool until 2.30pm. The pool area is clean and has plenty of sunbeds. There is a well stocked supermarket right next door to the complex. The weather was HOT while we were there and we usually manage without air conditioning on holiday, but on this occasion we had to ask for it - 100 euros for the fortnight - which took a sizeable chunk from our spending money as we had to pay cash - debit cards not accepted. (We did find 2 or 3 ATM's in Lindos though, so withdrawing cash was no problem). The Athena apartments are a good 20 minute stroll from Lindos town centre and beaches. The walk downhill into Lindos is fine, but tackling that hill on the return trip can be daunting especially after a good night out!! Taxis charge 4 euros for the trip back which is well worth it. Lindos town has an abundance of bars, restaurants and shops and the whole area is so beautifully picturesque with masses of photo opportunities. I would have no hesitation in recommending these apartments, and would love to go back!!

We booked this trip through a package deal with Thomas Cook (who used to be known for holidays of some quality!)
We paid a considerable sum for this holiday for 4 of us (2 adults and 2 children).We arrived at 5am when it was dark.The "apartment" although a reasonable size was really only 2 studios put together! The windows in the bedroom were approx 8 feet up!! It was equivalent to being in a prison cell!! We could see peoples feet as they walked by! The local kittens would look through the window at us! The whole idea was very claustrophobic! Each of the other 3 family apartments (NO SOFAS too! ) was below ground so we couldnt move.The traditional room were tiny tiny studios and we couldnt fit in there too.Really NOT a good place to send families! It is in he middle of nowhere.(certainly not the middle of the hill as told by the Thomas Cook agent!) It is a good 2 miles to the beach much of it down treacherous hills teaming with buses,taxis and donkeys plus bus loads of tourists coming in to visit the acropolis!. We had to use taxis at least 4 times per day just to get to the beach and to any restaurants!
We eventually ended up moving to a family hotel in the next resort after 3 days of living out suitcases! Out of pocket too as we had to pay 200 euros for the new hotel! and no refund from the Hotel Athena!

Room Tip: If you dont mind cramped quarters a studio room is ok.Otherwise 2 bed apartments are more roomy for...

Great hotel, nice clean room and pool area. 50 euro a week for air con. Theo behind bar is a great laugh. Bar prices very fair 3 euro for a large beer. Food served til 2.45 which was fair and very tasty. Easy walk down to village. Will be booking again for next year.

Its the third year running we have stayed here and can't fault anything except I personally don't like cats but although there were a few running around on the whole stayed away from me. Theo the Manager/Barman was brilliant in all respects. The location of the hotel was good for me, limited walking ability. The BBQ on the Sunday night were good with DJ George doing the Kareoke and Socrates (owner) kept the cats at bay.

Room Tip: Rooms on first floor have limited/no shade from the sun

We arrived at the Lindos Athena and were made welcome by Theo straight away. The rooms were basic but you get what you pay for and it was more than sufficient.
We enjoyed our time there so much we have re-booked for September.

great location great staff great room the appartment complex is on ground level no hill to climb to get to your room unlike some of the nearby appartments that have a steep gradiant no good after been at the bar. the bar food was very good on the same par as some local resturants if not better only served from 9am to 2.45pm (chef finished at 3pm) the sunday BBQ great value £12.00
theo great bar man (ask him about his new car june, a goat climbed on it to get to a tree and well pulled things off it spoiler etc) i have stayed in lindos about 18 time and this holiday was made special by the great welcome and hospitality given by theo and the staff what more can i stay i would stay there again no question the rest of the guessed staying there did help nice crowed. local shop next door just what you needs when you run out of anything. bar prices just right iam a cider drinker so have to pay over the odds lol but the magners was priced just right (i did manage to empty the fridge one night )

Room Tip: 1st floor room dont get the noise of people dragging chairs about ?

I will say that I am a bit slow in putting this review online as we went last October. Our third trip to the islands of Greece and first to Lindos. We went with friends and it was a budget priced holiday so we didn't expect the Ritz or anything like that. We did however expect clean and tidy which is exactly what we got. What we got extra was the welcome from all of the staff both here at Athena and then down at Socrates Bar.
Cracking place to sit and chill away from the bustle of the village but close enough for a walk down (taxi back unless you are sober and relatively fit though!) to one of many eating establishments.
From observing and talking to the other guests it was clear that a large percentage were repeat visitors which i think says it all. We are planning a return visit as the wife needs to repair Socrates's plant pots. Finally Alex is a shark at backgammon you have been warned.
