This was our third time at Lindian village.I booked it for a surprise birthday present for my husband. Sophia at guest realtions was so helpful and exceeded all my expectations on making it a success .Our room was upgraded to a beautiful jacuzzi/junior suite. a welcome drink on arrival and a beautiful table booked for us at the fish restauraunt . We listened to some beautiful singers in the evening which finished off the evening perfectly.Our day was made more special when diogras(?) remembered us from our wedding and previous visits . yes,its expensive,but it is the ultimate in class,peace and tranquility.I am amazed at negative comments . Dont expect kareoke,noise and rush .Expect peace.slow pace ,and a relaxed and beautiful setting.the water is warm and clear,just throw some beach shoes on.

I stayed at the hotel with my family for a week during August. The hotel has some very significant faults and even the best efforts of the (helpful and kind) staff cannot make up for them.
The more significant issues are:
- The Beach: not great in itself and badly needing an upgrade (old loungers, not enough of them, etc) is made terrible by the fact that the hotel makes little or no effort to ensure guests do not book places. If you want a decent place you need to wake up early, walk to the beach, and put some stuff to book a place.
- The Restaurants: with the exception of the Greek restaurant these are pretty dismal for the hotel category. Additionally, for some reason, each 1 of the 3 main restaurants is closed on any evening (in peak season....)
Overall one cannot help the strong impression that the hotel is rather badly managed. This is reinforced by the fact that a lot of guests appear to have come by booking last minute, attracted by heaviliy discounted rates (something which was confirmed by talking to some of the hotel people)

Included in the list of Leading Hotels of the World.
Very green area, a paradise, all the blooms and fragrance.
The territory is not very big.
Big room, good lighting, bright-green color scheme (as in the photo from the hotel) Two beds (very comfortable mattress and pillows), a large sofa, desk and coffee table, mini-bar (fee), safe (free). Some surprises a lot of glasses and cups, so this is a wine and champagne, and more for hard liquor.
This peculiar feature hotel, everything seems to be the same as everywhere, but the best quality.
Very nice evening, when the whole area is illuminated and is very well placed lights, similar to light fixtures. Cicadas, running water (rivers and waterfalls and several cascades) and the unobtrusive sounds of evening programs next to the restaurant. By the way, the program ends before 23:00. Evening entertainment is live music every day something new: jazz, classical, Latin, and, of course, Greek evening.
Delicious hearty breakfast.
All kinds of pebbles from very large to almost sand. Beach slippers - a must! Beach cozy, at the end of the bay. Beach towels are in abundance. And for those who like fine sand and shallow entrance to the 500 meters is a wonderful beach Glystra.
The sand is very soft and light. Log in very flat, long fine - good for young children.
Excellent transport links.

We spent one week in Lindian village, where we choose pool suite and suite with jacuzzi (we were two families). The rooms were very nice, especially the pool suite, but the pool was not clean and there was too much or to little water in it (the service was very slow - they came after 3rd call and 2 calls, the machine in the pool was working and very loud because of the little water, we could not sleep). The suite with jacuzzi was on the 1st floor where the AC was not working so it was hard to survive there. We heard some odd sound from the other room and called the maintenance, but with no result.

The beach was nice, but not sandy, you need to have special shoes to go in the water, otherwise it hurts.

The food here was a big dissappointment for us. Very narrow range of choice, food was not fresh (esp. salads, fruits), not tasty. Every day the same. Definitely not 5* level. The staff was very kind and nice, they did all they could, but it was not enought.

The rooms were clean and we had clean towels twice a day - it was o.k.

We were 2 families with 2 children (1 year and 1,5 years) and had return flight at 11 p.m., so we needed to leave the hotel at 8 p.m. The check-out is at 12 p.m.and the first and only thing we asked when we arrived was late check-out. As I mentioned, we had not standard rooms, but junior suite with jacuzzi and suite with private pool, we spent a lot of money (10 000 eur) to stay in this hotel, and they were not helpful to give us 2 simply standard rooms (we did not ask the same we had) to wait for our late flight with 2 infants who needed to sleep in the afternoon and could not wait for 8 hours at the reception. We did not care about the money, we just wanted comfort for our small children, but the receptionists did not care about us at all, they were arogant and they were not interested in it. Then I told them we would sleep at the reception with our small children, and they finally offered us junior suite with jacuzzi which we had before (with not working AC) till we left the hotel.

Result: the hotel should change/fire - reception staff, chef.

This was our second trip to Rhodos, we stayed in The Ixian Grand before, which was 2 levels up compare to this Lindian village. We never go back to Lindian village.

We are still here. After the second huge bug in our toilet we decided that our dream is to bug off from here asap.Thanks God tomorrow we quit. The structure is nice, lots of flowers and trees. Our double room was a bit oldish, with a wrong toilet infested by giant coakroaches (at least 5 cm long and 3 wide).
The service is kind (at least to us) and polite. But if you want to come here you need to rent a car from the very first day so you can go to eat decently in the local restaurants (in Genadi there is a fine one, called Antonis), as the food in the hotel is hospital-like, overpriced, boring and poor in quality. It is obvious that they don't give a damn about the latter. Some restaurant is open only for 3 days per week, so you ask yourself what's wrong here. You expect an orgie of fish and fruits but you get the frozen "calamari" and the frozen mussels.Peaches maybe once a week, if you are a good boy.Water-melons, tomatos, incredibly tasteless. If you have the half-board, just don't take it. Better you invest the money in a car (to run over the chefs).
The beach is nice, if you want a quiet stay. Sea is crystal clear. But there are really too few shadowed places, and you risk to get baked in 2 days and you will suffer for the rest of your time here.
The watersport unit, Sabinas, is fine, but with very few and expensive attractions. No scuba diving, also because there is nothing to see under the sea.
To cut the story short: come here but rent a car, a bike, or whatever helps to go out, don't eat and bring your own toilet disinfecting things from home.
PS: Do not think Rhodos is a cheap place. The taxis out there are more expensive than the Paris' ones, and so the rent-a-car.

This resort is a member of the "Leading Hotels of the World". Having stayed at a number of the other hotels in this group this resort is well below the standard set by it's peers. Without wanting to go through an entire list of failures, in summary:

There are 5 restaurants, only 3 of them are open in the evening. One of these is a buffet where the food doesn't change, and the others cannot cater for all the guests and therefore if you don't reserve you will not get a table until late in the evening. The quality of the food in the restaurants is not great, and you will find much better service and food outside the resort.

You will find a better breakfast in a 3 star B&B, having been served meat that was off, one wonders what the rest of the kitchen is like. (luckily our waitress quickly came a retrieved the omelete with the off meat in it and apologised). After having stayed here for a week already, the variety of food available has not changed even a little, and the impression given is one of little hygiene. The staff are trying their best (with the exception of the breakfast chef - who couldn't give a toss) but even they admit that the hotel shouldn't be a Leading Hotel of the World.

When we arrived we had pre-arranged a car from resort to pick us up. It was an hour and a half late. My advice is get a taxi - when they are not on strike.

Don't be fooled by the pictures on the website, the beach is a stone beach and is not sandy. You need to buy special shoes to walk on it and they sell these at the shop in the resort, alongside hardcore pornographic playing cards at a small childs reach.

The staff are very good and try there best, but they can only play with the cards that they a dealt. The exception of this rule is the housekeeping, who badger you if there is a "do not disturb" sign outside your door - 3 phonecalls on one day to see when we would take the sign off, and then when they did come in they did a 4 minute clean. Added to this was a scene at the pool side restaurant where a poor waitress had obviously done something that the "Captain" waiter did not like and he berated her at the top of his voice in front of the diners. The irony being here that she was one of the great and attentive members of staff and after her scolding you could see that she was totally deflated and couldn't wait for her shift to end.

We tried to speak to the manager, but they were too busy to see us, and then later in the day we were told that we could go up to his office to see him as he was free. I thought good customer service would mean that they would come and find us at our convenience rather than going upstairs to see the "headmaster".

I suppose one of the things that i look for in a hotel and resort is consistency in service, there is none here

This is our first trip to Rhodes and it is a beautiful island, we will be back but would not come back to his resort as I am sure there are others that are of a much higher standard.
