Perched on a sun-drenched hilltop in one of Rhodes’ prettiest spots, Lindos Village Resort & Spa is a tranquil and relaxing adults-only retreat that combines the rustic simplicity of its location near a historic village with the service and amenities of a luxury resort.
From the grand lobby, you can spy the Aegean and nearby mountains, the stunning swimming pool, and even the rooms. Meanwhile, one of the island’s most beautiful beaches is just a short walk down the hill. As an added bonus, you’ll also have full access to the facilities and amenities of the larger sister hotel next door.
How to Get There
Just enjoying our last day at Lindos Village and we are very sorry to be leaving. What a wonderful place! The location is just beautiful with amazing views across Vlycha Bay and lovely surrounding gardens. The rooms are perfectly clean with very comfortable beds and the all important air con! Breakfast here is so good with a very wide range of healthy and delicious choices - something for everyone. Although the hotel itself is stunning what has really made this is a special holiday is the amazing staff. From the reception staff to the bar and restaurant and especially the pool bar we were made to feel so welcome from our arrival and all throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and everyday we were greeted with smiles and hellos from all the staff. We especially appreciated the care and attention Christos paid to looking after us poolside - he really takes care of all the guests and adds an extra level of customer service we haven’t found anywhere else.
The hotel is in a low standard
Does not justify the 5-star rating
The food is simple
The coffee at breakfast filter only.
The hotel is not in Lindos, as it is known to be a few kilometers from Lindos
The view is beautiful
The pool is small and simple
Power sockets are not safe
Very few electrical outlets in the room
To turn on the coffee maker you have to disconnect the television.

Just returned from a lovely break away to this hotel. It was super clean with A+ attentive staff. The food was lovely with plenty on offer. The views over the beach are amazing particularly when having dinner on a evening on the restaurant terrace. Highly recommend this place, really reasonable hire car centre nearby and supermarket for essentials. Close to the beach, with the hotel offering a golf buggy lift service to and from, throughout the day.
Fantastic hotel, our room 123 was very good and very up to date, however the cleaning was terrible
The food was very variable but always luke warm and there were a few theme evenings as well. One thing that annoyed me though was, there was no dress code and that is one reason I cannot say this is a 5 Star hotel.
Also the steps to and from the pool area, all 51 plus of them are gruelling and not for the feint hearted.
The staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful, especially both Costos in the pool area and Costos in the bar area.
And finally the WiFi was hit and miss so again in this day and age WiFi should be a better quality so again this is not a 5 Star Hotel.
My biggest gripe is with TUI delayed flights, start of holiday and end of holiday. And this appears too have been an on going problem for quite a while.
We booked this week's holiday through an agent in the UK and paid extra for an upgrade to a deluxe sea view double room.
We arrived very late due to flight delays and transfer issues (waiting for people who never showed up) but were met with a glass of prosecco and a very friendly staff. Indeed all the staff were friendly throughout and most very efficient in their duties.
We were shown to our room which was supposedly a deluxe sea view room and being just after midnight we went to bed. In the morning we looked more closely at what we had. The bed was fine but very close to the dressing table on one side. The dressing table had a nice Nespresso coffee machine, glasses, complementary bottles of wine and water (not replenished) and a large flat screen TV (with the usual 5 or 6 English channel). These all meant though that the dressing table had virtually no usable space and blocked the use of the large mirror on the wall behind - would have been useful for those who apply make-up and "do" their hair.
The bathroom was tiny. One person only, the entry door just cleared the toilet and then had to be closed to be able to get into the bath. There was a single bottle of the usual shampoo, conditioner, etc for two of us for the week - never replenished despite being used.
The walls were seemingly paper thin so that sound proofing was almost non-existent. This meant the bathroom of the adjacent room was next to our bedhead and so we heard their use of the toilet in intimate details throughout the night particularly after we had gone to bed. Their flushing often awoke us.
The main issue though was the sea view - there wasn't one. I expect a sea view to be visible from the room. In this case we had to go onto the very small balcony and look round the corner to see the sea - reminiscent of Fawlty Towers for those who are old enough!
We raised this with the hotel staff and they politely but firmly said this was the room for which we had paid. I include some pictures to show the size and disposition of the balcony and sea view.
Overall the hotel is great. Fantastic selection of food for both breakfast and dinner, really excellent staff in general, nice pool and bar areas and a good posh a la carte restaurant as well but you must book the day before. The local beach is stony and about 5 minutes walk away with umbrellas and sunbeds in a designated area. Water sports were available there too although we didn't try them this time.
Overall this is a lovely resort and I would recommend it but be very clear the sort of room you are paying for. We have now complained to our tour operator but are not overly optimistic about anything helpful coming from it. We certainly wouldn't use them again!
