“Such a great time BEST HOLIDAY EVER!! THANKYOU”
Reviewed 2 December 2009

This holiday has to be the best i have had in a long time

What made it so brilliant was the staff, emilijano, theo, alex, vangelis and the owner socrates who was always so welcoming, its like entering one big family!

Everyone got to know each other and there was always lots of fun by the pool and bar with all age ranges form 0 to 100!
Met alot of wedding parties and also groups of people for the rock festival

Service for the check in was friendly and rooms were spacious and clean. There is a supermarket just behind the hotel/

The beautifil village is only a 10 minute walk away with a choice of 4 beaches and the views are out of this world!

In the day we would chill and sunbathe by the pool and at night we would have drinks and then go into lindos for some nights to remember. A large selection of bars with all different music genres from 60s to rock!. and the hotel is close to the open air night club ampitheatre which is a short taxi ride away.

Cant wait to go back next summer!

It's got everything you need, but nothing special. It's a 15min walk uphill from Lindos old town - tiring if it's really hot. The pool is clean. Rooms are ok. Good value if you can get a cheap package deal.

We just got back today (28th october 09) after staying 14 nights at the lindos athena.
W have previously travelle this late in the season to diferent countries but found that in Rhodes a lot of things were closed or closing.The athena bar , we only ever saw open on one night and the food was only served up until about 3pm if at all, so we had to go into the town to eat instead of staying in the complex.
The room was pretty basic, which we didnt mind as it was cheap I suppose, but there were 4 of us to take breakfast in rotation with only 3 dishes and 2 spoons.
The beds had slats under which were not stable and if you were not careful you would fall through, (I usually checked every night before I got in that it was safe) The shower curtain was grubby and the water drained away very slowly(you had to stop half way through the shower or it would flood the bathroom)
The cleaners, maids were very good and came every day except sunday to make the beds, mop floors, change towels and take away any rubbish, no fault there, excellent *****. The light in our bathroom did start to flicker so we couldnt use it and had to get used to going in there in the dark for the final few days of our stay.
We were quite hot but found the cats very annoying as you couldnt leave any windows open without them coming inside.(perhaps mesh doors etc would be good )
The local shop ws expensive, the next hearest, flora was not a lot cheaper but we had to shop there for any food we needed as there were not many other local places.
The town was lovley, Marios was an excellent place to eat for value, variety and friendliness. we found the same poeple in ther eating everytime we went it was so good *****
The buses were a bit confusing as some days they charged for children, others they were half price and some days they were free(Local bus to other villages etc) The time table was different too with it being near end of season, yet when I asked at the bus hut he said it was the same. You also find that queues dont seem to exist, it is a metter of "all pile on as fast as you can" many times we have been first there by far and last on by far too!!!!!
the free bus down to town is very good, stopsd about 7 though so not much use after eating out.Gets you fit though walking up the hill we must have done it about 10 times at least !!!! Hills everywhere in lindos so it seems.
Also because of the season a lot of trips were not running which was disappointing too, we did get a day out at symi through a company in the village and one through our rep, island adventure which was fantastic and very interesting aswell.
All in all a very good holiday with a few minor blips but not enough to really spoil it.I would recommend the athena to anyone wanting cheap and cheerful, I am told that most greek accomadation is "basic" anyway so maybe this is the norm.............................enjoy Lindos*****

We'd stayed in Lindos View (Self catering apartment) 5 years ago and enjoyed the holiday so much we decided to return for another holiday this year. Unfortunately the 'View' was fully booked, but Thomas Cook assured us that the 'Athena' was of the same rating. Naturally we expected the same standard. A good size room, separated from the 'kitchen', a nice clean bathroom and a single balcony. What we got was a tiny single room, with a fridge 2 foot away from the bed (which buzzed all night), an awful bathroom (broken shower holder, blocked shower tray, broken towel rail and smelling drain), a shared balcony and twin beds with mattresses which were basically springs covered by cotton - terrible. Seems that the whole place was thrown together quickly to get in as many tourists as possible, ad to that the thin walls and floors! Lindos is great, really laid back & relaxing, but the apartment was awful. We will never book another holiday with Thomas Cook, well not at £800 for one week anyway!!

My new hubby+ i booked this hotel because it was hilighted as being a get away from it all hotel. we went out to lindos 16 /30th sept to ger married only the two of us so didnt want the 5 star treatment, but what we did want was peace/quiet/cleanliness, we got none of the above.the Athena has one bar only not two as stated in hol brochures which is the pool bar which stays open until after3AM so you can imagine the noise that follows, no good asking for room swap all rooms surround the pool bar. ourselves + another couple complained to thomas cook rep +we submitted a complaints form. we are not grumpies and are not in bed for 10 o clock either but this was totalyunfair and unacceptable to guests who wanted peace/quiet. cleanliness was appaling although towels were changed daily the floors or furniture hadnt seen a duster for a long time, outside on the balconey which are shared by the way so it helps to get on with your neighbour,in the ashtray was a used piece of chewing gim which remained there for the entire hol. this is a family run hotel and unless you spend plenty of euros at the bar dont expect the warm greek hospitality in fact most days the staff didnt speak or smile at all.

This was mine and my partners fourth time in lindos, we love the place. It was our first time at the athena and we were more than pleased with what we found. I had read reviews before we went and was expecting it to be not very good, so to arrive and find that although very basic it was clean and had everything you would need was a relief. We will def be booking again for our next visit

My husband and I stayed at the Lindos Athena as we were getting married at St Pauls Chapel and we needed somewere that would suit everyone that was coming out with us and our 3 young children and not to far from the town.

We were really happy with the accommodation as we had a large patio, the maids came everyday and did sweep and mop the floor and change the bedding and towels, and the staff were really friendly and the food was lovely.

The walk to the town is hilly but great for toning up muscles that I forgot I had and working off all the delicious Greek food that was available.

The best restaurant that we went to in Lindos was Marios, very cheap, but delicious food we went back 3 times!!
All in all, I would def recommend this hotel to people visiting Lindos I was disappointed to be coming home after a brilliant 2 week holiday !
