Wedding at Lindos Memoriesfrom rcroxford
We have just got back from a 2 week holiday at Lindos Memories, where we held our wedding ceremony and wedding breakfast and then continued our Honey Moon Here. Fantastic Hotel and staff, they couldn't have done enough for us.
Karen from Lindos Weddings orgnaised the day for us, which was just amazing. We had the best day ever.
Our bedroom at the hotel was lovely, the whole hotel is always very clean and very well looked after.
The service from all the staff was just great!!
I could not recoemend this hotel enough.
I can't wait for a return visit.
Thanks again Lindos Memories.
Lindos Memories is Worth a Visitfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Our room was a little on the small side, but it was very clean. We did not go on holiday to stay indoors though, so it was fine for our needs. Our only gripe was the notice stating the minibar fridge was not be used to store our own drinks. After a couple of days however, we had made friends with all of the staff, and we had no problems doing so!
The staff were all really friendly, and went out of their way to make our stay at the hotel a very pleasant one. The Maitre'd at the restaurant was a bit grumpy tho, so steer clear of him! Making an effort to learn a few Greek words also went a long way.
We went half board, but got bored very quickly of the same format of evening meal everyday, so we ate out a few nights. The greek night on a thursday was a welcome change though, and comes highly recommended. Wine was too expensive. The breakfast looked great, but some of the food was left out for the flies to help themselves, and other stuff sat on hotplates for too long, so we steered clear of everything but the freshly made crepes. Lunch at the taverna was very expensive. 8.50 euros for a small greek salad and 14 euros for souvlaki (shish kabab). You can trade one dinner for a lunch using a voucher from reception, but this is not worth it as dinner per head is 25euros and the lunch is 25euros for 2. (not even enough for 2 souvlaki's!)
Don't let the food put you off the hotel though. the evening meals were very nice, and there is nothing stopping you from exploring the island and its fantastic food. There is also a lot to see on the island, so hire a car if you can. We recommend not hiring from the hotel however, as it was very expensive. Our hire for 4 days with Marathon Hire cost less than 2 days with the hotel rentacar rep, and they delivered/ collected from the hotel. Worthwhile places to visit include Presonissi, the southern most tip of the island, the 7 springs, where you can have a great lunch (and sample the spring water!), and the wine region in the north west; it's breathtaking! Best beaches for us were Lindos (sandy but crowded) and Tsambiko beach.
We ended up getting engaged on our holiday, so we won't forget it in a hurry. Overall, we would recommed the hotel.
Fantastic location for couples!from AthanasiaGreece
When we arrived, our room wasn't ready and they offered us another room just for shower or relax. Well, it was really small and without any good view (ground floor) and I didn't like it. Ask for a "deluxe", or a maisonette if you can afford it (much more expensive). This is a 5* hotel, with 5* location and swimming pool and breakfast (don't believe the bad reviews on this), maybe with 4* service sometimes, but it's not so bad! I complained about not replacing the toiletries and the cleaning lady brought me some. It wasn't her fault, it's the hotel's policy. The room was spotlesly cleaned every day, I have to thank the nice cleaning lady. I asked her to do it early in the morning and she did it for our entire stay!
Breakfast is VERY good and of a huge variety. I had the freshest and best applepie, the best cheese omelete, there were always pancakes, crepes, different cakes, meats, cheeses, fresh fruits&vegetables, even smoked mackerel, not to mention other usual breakfast food. On Sundays they offer champagne with breakfast. As for the lack of fresh orange juice, well having fresh juices would be a plus, but I can say that in summer we don't have fresh oranges in Greece. We have plenty of good Greek oranges in winter! Summer is not their season. Maybe the hotel didn't want to use tasteless imported oranges for the juice. I live in Greece and I know better. We don't buy oranges in summer, we have other seasonal fruits!
The beach is secluded, with the nicest colours all over Rhodes and with no building around! As for locals visiting... I don't know why it bothers some people! By law, THERE ARE NO PRIVATE BEACHES in Greece! Of course some hotels put fences, but it's not allowed! "Lindos Memories" respected that, respected the area and I'm happy about it! I don't agree with non-hotel guests occupying the hotel's beach umbrellas&chairs. The hotel staff should take care of that. But people can surely use the beach, laying on their towels etc.
Lindos is a very beautiful town (the castle is gorgeous). Try to avoid the tourist traps, especially at restaurants. The best restaurant in town is "Mavrikos". It used to be expensive but it has good prices now, and the food is fresh and honest, something I can't say for other restaurants (where almost everything was frozen, even chicken!) Try white Rhodian wine (Athiri variety, dry), it's very good even the non expensive bottles. Some restaurants avoid having them, trying to sell more expensive wines...
A stay at the "Lindos Memories" can be very pleasant, if you choose your room and have a motorcycle or a car for getting around. For us, it was the best choice, and we carefully checked the other good hotels of the area.
The out of town beautiful location was the biggest plus! The view from the -many many- windows of our suite was sooo good! The garden is new and has to grow more, but lovely! Especially the ibiscus flowers...
Nice relaxing Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We were impressed with the quantity and quality of choice for breakfast - only had an evening meal once - mixed feelings about this - my husband enjoyed his but I did not make a good choice. We were b&b so ate out for the rest of the holiday. We had some pleasant meals out in Lindos and Pefkos.
The pool was very nice and a decent size for the hotel - good quality sun beds/parasols and always plenty available. The poolside Taverna staff were excellent and provided lovely food. The beach area is small and is visited by locals - we did not find this a problem.
The only draw back we found was its location - a bit remote and it was not safe to walk anywhere due to no paths and driving standards, but taxis were readily available.
We hired a car via our tour op but the car hire desk in the hotel was a comparable price. If you hire a car a visit to Plimiri beach not far from Prassonisi as you head south is a must. The restaurant [shack] serves lovely fresh fish ... The beach is lovely and there is a shower and 1 changing cabin.
Rhodes old town,Lindos and Pefkos are a bit commercialised - aimed obviously at us tourists - we did think it a shame that everyone speaks English. Overall we had a lovely holiday and other guests we spoke to have stayed at this hotel several times.
More like 3*from A TripAdvisor Member
The Hotel is very attractive and looked promising; the pool is small but nice and the poolside loungers are really comfortable with towels provided.
The room had a sea view if you were a Giraffe! and directly outside were electricity pylons. The room was quite nice although two twins do not make a double!
The bathroom was modern and well equiped but far too small. The air-con was good but the mini bar could not be used to cool our own drinks without a charge from the hotel at their prices (1.80 euros for a small water) we just emptied it before they came and checked and put it all back when they left!
The staff in the Lyndia Taverna were very nice (Chrissa) and the food was tasty which makes me believe its a Franchise or similar and not run by the hotel as their food was dire. We noticed that previous trip advisors raved about the breakfast, let me assure you its probably the worst buffet style I have ever had - the only thing that covered the jams/hams/breads/cakes e.t.c were the flies! Why they won't serve fresh orange is a mystery, we bought a litre from a supermarket and it cost 80 cents - bizarre.
The restaurant staff are morose, surly and ineffectual and to be quite honest shouldn't bother turning up.
Experience tells me that if an hotel cannot get breakfast right then dont bother with dinner and this proved to be true again - dreadfull.
The beach was small and rocky and in the brochure it said private; not true the locals swarm there at the weekend and use the hotels sunbeds.
The location is somewhat detached from Lindos and requires a taxi or car hire - the taxi was 7 euros to Lindos and 5 back. There is nothing else around and nothing to do.
Lindos itself is worth a quick walk around but it is so incredibly commercialised you may well think you are in Blackpool (sorry Blackpool).
The hotel is worthy of a 3* rating and the staff need to have a little bit more respect for the travellers that keep their country from having a third world status. My review may seem a little extreme but I assure you it is correct, Rhodes in general was extremely expensive, unkempt, dirty and offers little for the discering traveller. Where possible we only stay in 5* hotels and whoever is responsible for their 5* rating doesn't know their head from other parts of their anatomy!
The best advice I could give is don't go! On a positive note - the weather was great!
Honeymoon in Lindosfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The room was not large but we would not consider it small by any means. This was not a major issue anyway as we hardly spent much time in it. The grounds of the hotel are immaculate. The views of the cliffs and the bay are spectacular and the staff was top notch.
I read an earlier review about the 24-hour front desk being unmanned -- we never experienced this. We checked out at 4:45am on a Wednesday (in order to make our early flight) and the front desk was helpful in expediting our check-out even that early in the morning.
The hotel was a few kilometers from Lindos. We tried three different methods of getting to town -- a cab, walking and renting a car. We quickly tired of waiting for a cab, and the walk was interesting the first three times but then became tedious. The best bet is to rent a car from the rental desk in the hotel. It gives you the most freedom and is not overly expensive.
We both are looking forward to going back in the not-to-distant future!
* Excellent staff
* Amazing location -- close to Lindos but not overcrowded
* Nice private beach for snorkeling & swimming
* Car rental service desk in lobby
* The evening meals were atrocious. But it is better to eat in Lindos anyway.
* Cleaning of rooms was down sporadically.
* The local convenience shop at the hotel is way overpriced.
Pros And Consfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at The Lindos Memories,
We booked with Thomas Cook Select.
Wonderful pool area
Decent breakfasts (but fresh orange juice cost extra if you wanted it)
Nice Greek Evenings once a week with buffet and Greek entertainment
Only 7 euro taxi ride into Lindos Village (fab selection of Restaurants including The Lindian Indian and a brilliant Italian for when you want a change from Greek food)
Nobody on 24 hour Reception when we first arrived in the middle of the night.
Several people experienced overbooking and had to stay elsewhere for at least their first night.
Rather small rooms.
Ours had no bath to our surprise, only a shower.
Ground floor rooms on one side of the Hotel enclosed by railings.
Many people asked to change room.
Very few rooms with full sea view, despite Hotel being right on the beach.
Awful Evening Meals, with limited, repetative choices on menu,
Lots of noisy children staying at The Hotel during our 2 week stay.
This came as a shock to us after reading numerous reviews stating the Hotel was not really suitable for children,
However, there is a small childrens play area/pool.
My dress was laundered and when it was returned had shrunk by about 8 inches.
When I challenged this I was told the care lable was adhered to and I could not prove what length the dress was originally!
The Hotel were only prepared to reimburse the cost of the Laundry bill, despite ruining my dress.
I will be persuing this matter now I am back home, but would not recommend using this service.
I have NEVER experienced this sort of problem at any other Hotel I've stayed at, and I stay at dozens.

Top Local Tips for Rhodes
Taxi You must, if staying outside Lindos visit it in the evening to see it all lit up, it's beautiful and the taxi drivers have some great stories to tell you on the journey.
Arhontiko Restaurant I would recommend the Restaurant Arhontiko in Lindos for a high-quality meal in a quaint setting. You will pay a few Euros more here but it is worth it if you are looking for a quiet setting with a nice ambience and very good food. We also ate at the popular Kalypso (on the Lonely Planet circuit) but found it to be overrated.
very nice to see but....... skip it and go to samos
