“Lindos Athena - an excellent stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2009

Well, we arrived at the Athena and were taken to our bottom floor room. All seemed fine apart from a few problems we had promptly cleared up by Paul the next day. My friends pillow had a very ominous red stain on it. This was swiftly changed. We had problems with the kettle being covered in lime-scale and the dishes not looking clean, however, Paul told us this was due to the minerals in the water and it was simply water marks. We also got a brand new kettle! The rooms are basic but you get what you pay for!

Apaert from that first day I cannot fault the Athena in the slightest. The staff were excellent, especially the bar boys when serving us many cocktails! The food was fine and a reasonable price too. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, as was the pool area. Never a problem getting sunbeds and the pool was a decent size.

The best thing was that the supermarket was joined on to the hotel grounds, which was extremely convienient for carrying water etc. Good selection of british foods for your room too.

It is a little bit of a trek down to the village but I believe we were the closest hotel to it. Beware the slippy pavements and crazy driving!

I will recommend the Mythos restaurant! It was absolutely amazing and had lovely views of the Acropolis. The food and the service were excellent and a reasonable price too.

All in all I had a fab time and would definitely recommend to anyone for a lazy break.

lindons athena is a basic self catering apartments and if your laid back then this is the place for you. we went as a group of 26 people as a wedding party and enjoyed every moment of the holiday.
The athena is set up hill over looking the acropolis and is a 10min walk down hill in to the breath taking lindos village which has a number of great restaurants and bars, naming socratis bar as the best being its the same guy that owns the hotel. socratis cooks a fantastic BBQ once a week which is well worth the stay it self.

Stayed at Lindos Athena for a week. The rooms were good, with a nice view of the pool from the balcony. The staff were really friendly, especially Vangelis and George who worked at night. The bbq on the Sunday night was also very good. The restaurants were nice with a big selection to choose from. The walk to the town was ok, takes about 5 minutes. The beach is about 10 minutes away but there is a free bus which goes there and back every hour. Overall it was a really good holiday and would definatly go back again.

I went to Lindos with the whole family,we didn't stay at the Athena however spent most of our time there around the pool and in Socrates bar at night. From the minute we arrived by the pool Alex came and greeted us with a nice friendly smile and since then looked after us for the whole week making sure everything was okay and made sure we were enjoying ourselves! The cleanliness of the whole area was fantastic the only down side is the sunbeds they do look a little old! Anyways that didn't ruin my holiday as it was the best i have ever had the sun, the bar staff and the night life FANTASTIC! Definately going back there next year maybe even to work :)
Thank-you guys for looking after us
See You All Next Year for few more cocktails xx

We were actually staying over the road but we used the facilities i.e pool and bar at the Athena, we were warmly welcomed by Alex, Theo, Emilio and Paul, what a great team of great guys, Alex (the big boss) kept them all in line and made sure all guests were treated with good fun etc. The pool is very informal and friendly, (and clean!) always sunbeds available, the cocktails are amazing especially the strawberry daquiris yum yum! There is a supermarket across from the Athena which is owned by a great couple who are very helpful, Yes the walk to the town is all downhill, but we enjoyed it, we also walked back up it every night to work our meal off lol! The town is lovely, reminds me of York but abroad with all the winding cobbled paths full of small bars and roof top restaurants which overlook the acropolis. You must take a visit to Socrates bar in town, if you like rock music and watching "cocktail" the movie you will see Alex (from the hotel) performing his cocktail act! Great bar and not too noisy too late as all music stops at 1pm. (noise control) there is a club however Qupi which is where all the young go etc The food at the pool area at Athena is very good and not pricey. All in all we had a great holiday and wish we were there for 2 weeks! We will certainly be going back next year as our children had a great time, 16 and 11 and would not forgive us uf we didnt lol.

Apartments -:

Positives: Nice location, but it does involve a bit of a trek down to the main town. There is a supermarket right beside the apartments, so easy access to water etc. The Athena apartments are lovely from the outside (traditional Greek white and blue) and the pool is gorgeous. It also has a nice bar and friendly staff. In particular Emilio, who makes a mean Greek salad!

Negatives: The Athena apartments are basic inside and although the cleaners come every two days to empty buckets and mop the floors, they don't clean thoroughly. Our apartment was full of cob webs and dead insects! The bathroom was also a bit damp and the shower curtain was dirty. Also, it was a hit or a miss if you had hot water or not!

So in summary, weighing up the pros and cons we wouldn't stay in these apartments again. In fact, although Lindos is absolutely gorgeous, we wouldn't visit there again.

Reasons being that it is very expensive (10 Euro for two vodkas and approx 45 Euro for two main meals and wine!) and was for couples and older people. There were hardly any singles and the pubs were very quiet. Not for singles!!!

Okay so we didnt pay a lot for this holiday (£211 each) and you only get what you pay for but I have stayed at a lot better places for less money and the 5 star reviews given here are shameful in my opinion. I can only assume that a random collection of bored housewives and pre-pubescent girls have let the friendly and attractive young lads that work here colour their judgement. We certainly saw evidence of this, there was even a little spat or two very late in the evening when the cat fighting was in full flow.

I am certainly not hard to please, all I ask for from basic self catering accomodation such as this is clean, reasonably quiet and a decent location and the latter was the only thing this place has. Its is set on Krana, an elevated position giving nice views, our room had a lovely view of the Acropolis between apartment blocks from the shared balcony. Its is a ten minute walk into Lindos and a steep climb back if you are up for it.

Things go downhill fron here though, the room was predictably small and the comedy plumbing that is sometimes found in places like this was in evidence, a steady knocking sound throughout the night was particularly grating (assuming that wasnt from the staffs nocturnal gymnastics, if it was fair play to them they kept it going all night). The shower was set to 'spray water everywhere but where its meant to go' with the variable water temperature setting and although the maids did clean the room most days the stuff they left was sometimes less clean than the stuff they took away (a line of dried blood on one of my bedsheets was particularly scary). I also came back with several insect bites (not mozzies) and I have this place as my Prime suspect, possibly down to the myriad of stray cats that the owner seems to actively encourage.

In short, perfect place for Shirley Valentines, former Bros fans and flea bitten cat lovers. Anyone else I would try other places
