We arrived at 4am to be greeted by Stavros, a man who cant do enough to help. The room was really spacious and clean and we have never seen such a big bathroom in Greek accomodation, a corner bath with a decent shower which never ran out of hot water.
The pool area was great, never a problem getting a sun bed and the pool was a really good size and always clean. It was amazing watching the goats leave the caves every morning and come down the hill to go and forage for food and then return in late afternoon ( though at first it was distressing hearing the kids bleating for their mums until you realise this is a daily occurence and they always get back together at the end of the day). The bar food was also excellent, with lots of choice.
Tommy runs the bar at night and we found this a relaxing place to come for a couple of drinks at the end of the night. The bar shuts between 1-2 am, and is not noisey at all ( our room was a stones throw away and our sleep was never disturbed).
Its a 10-15 minute walk to the centre of Lindos, downhill going, but deffinately an uphill walk back. There are plenty of taxi's to take you back up the hill if you want, but we chose to walk and burn off some of the calories after eating so much delicious food each night.
The Acropolis is worth a visit, we got up early and got there at 8 when it opens to avoid the hoards of tourists who arrive at 9am. We hired a car for 2 days (which Stavros kindly organised for us), there is so much to see on Rhodes and on the western side of the island the roads are in very good condition, well sign posted and you can drive for miles without seeing another car.
There is only one negative I can say about this place and that is the extra cost for the air con, 60 euros for a week or 110 euros for the fortnight, which we thought was very expensive and have never had to pay that much before. We did without for the first week, but it was just too hot so relented and paid for the second week.
I would reccommend this place 100% for anyone who loves the relaxed Greek way of life, hassle free and friendly.
