British family hotel
Lindos is our "banker" holiday. we have been there every year for 9 years - we know exactly what we are getting, the weather is fantastic (if you like hot sun) and the locals always remember us! Lindos is beautiful, busy in the day with daytrippers but more laid back at night with small bars and a couple of clubs. Lindos restaurants are fabulous - most situated on the rooftops - traditional fayre, we always go self catering so we can try the restaurants. Unless youre happy with fairly basic accommodation found in Lindos itself, the larger hotels and apartment blocks (all lowrise) are on the edge of Lindos therefore there is always a steep walk back to your hotel - hard work in the heat, but taxis are abundant if required.
We chose Lindos View in a package holiday as it worked out cheaper than booking flights and any accommodation seperately, so LV wouldnt have been our first choice necessarily as we really dont need the amenities of a pool, play area and restaurant on site etc. Lindos View is mainly for the British and we found it is very busy around the pool with families with young children but we prefer the beach anyway (sunbeds 8E for two) so no big deal. Our room was large and clean but only equipped with the very basic of kitchen equipment, so cooking even a basic meal took some juggling. No washing up liquid or teatowel provided (Lambis studios just behind do provide these). Air con is extra at 7E a day and is required mid jun to mid sept. Small tv in room with normal 2 english channels, no suprises here. Had a couple of meals in restaurant - breakfast and evening meal and it was really quite nice. Came back from town a few times to Karoke entertainment (?) and some average singer but cant fault Lindos View really, ideal for families but if youre a bit more reserved maybe not for you.

This hotel was lovely. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the food was some of the best I've tasted at home or abroad and the whole place was always immaculately clean. We also joined in on some of the entertainment they had on offer, this was alot of fun!
We went as part of a wedding party of approximately 30 guests and stayed on as a couple for a second week. While these weeks were obviously very different we loved both.
The only issue we found was that the resort of Lindos is basically built on a cliff face. There are steep hills into the town and even steeper ones to the beach. As a young couple this was fine, but some older members of our party struggled with this. However Taxis to and from the hotel were reasonable (just be aware they won't take you if you have too much 'luggage') and there are donkey rides to and from the beach!
All in all a fantasic holiday and much needed break.

Great Holiday !
We had a great holiday in Lindos, We stayed at the Lindos View Apartments, these were lovely apartments very nicely kept and in a good location. We were on a self catering basis and only ate in the restaurant once, but the meal was nice and fantastic views of the Acropolis from the restaurant. We would certainly recommend Lindos View to our family and friends . Although we do think that Lindos itself isn't very suitable for people with mobility problems, as it is very hilly.

This is our fourth visit to the Lindos View, and will be definatley going back again. Although we did find food and drink a lot more expensive this time in Lindos. If you want a relaxing holiday, the Lindos View is the place to go It is the ideal location to stay, the views are beautiful. The Staff are friendly and helpful, and the hotel is spotless, rooms are cleaned daily,(except for sundays). I think 55 euros is a little expensive for air conditioning, but is a must if you go in high season. This year we introduced friends to the Lindos View, and they have fallen in love with it, just as we did. They also plan a return visit. They only complaint i have, is i booked the holiday this time through Thomas Cook, who changed my flights to a budget airline i had never heard of, after i had paid for the holiday. They also changed our flight times, and i was not informed of this until i received my tickets.

Just returned from Lindos for my daughters wedding,50 people in total with 30 staying at the wedding reception venue The Lindos View Studios.This place is a little gem not only did they make the whole day special by going that extra mile to take care of it but the whole stay was perfect for everyone so much so that within 2 weeks of return 26 of us have so far booked for next year (2012). All the staff here are the most friendly and welcoming you could wish for. Great breakfast up till 3.00pm and evening meal till 11.00pm. Not all the rooms are yet up to the high standard we stayed in but hopefully they will be in time but non the less they are clean and comfortable but not so good for self catering. All in all we are looking forward to going back.

lindos exceeds expectation
Lindos view is ideally placed. on a bit of a hill, so gets lovely cool breeze every night. Room nice and clean - although ants a problem! Cooking utensils limited, so not really suitable for more than sandwich preparation. Reception nice and welcoming, and clean. Shower and changing facilities great for change over day - no need to reserve courtesy room.
Steep hill down to village, but shuttle bus runs every 10 mins in the day. Challenging coming up at end of the day, but manageable. Village gorgeous, with masses of roof top restaurants - food quality good - prices about the same as UK. Not too much hassle from staff on doorsteps, just a polite indication towards menu.
Would love to return again

There is nothing not to like about lindos or lindos view . we were very pleased with our apartment as previous reviews said that booking with thomas cook you would only get an older apartment but we actually had a refurbished one which was beautiful. The hotel restaurant food was great. we could not find anything to complain about from being picked up at the airport to being returned there, the only disapoinment was having to leave:(. I would recomend Lindos view to any age. We will definatly be returning to stop at Lindos view.

Really good holiday.
I spent a week at these studios and found everything excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they done everything you asked. The location was great as there was a supermarket and cashpoint close by.You also had the choice of going to two different bays from the hotel as it was in between the two. The hotel also has the best entertainment in Lindos, and is open 24hrs. Two good swimming pools and loverly gardens, and a great view of The Acropolis.A good system for late departures was the locker and towel to use the shower rooms in the basement, this ment i could enjoy my last day at the resort, and shower and change for the late evening departure.
