I travelled to Lindos White for a one week relaxing holiday with my girlfriend. Upon reading some of the reviews before we got there we were somewhat apprehensive but after arriving our fears quickly passed.
I had called ahead a couple of days before arriving to ask for a room in the newer block after reading that this was, predictably, nicer. We were then allocated a beautiful, big double room in a block of just four at no extra cost. The room had plenty of space so as not to clutter the place with our luggage, as can be the case. The bathroom was also lovely, the shower in particular. I also requested a bottle of Prosecco in the room on arrival as a surprise, this was arranged without hassle for a small fee.
The hotel itself was noticeably very clean which was more striking with the white on white theme. The staff were friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner, as part of the all inclusive, was much better than we had expected. There were plenty of fresh salads, fruit and other healthy dishes at each meal - along with other more obvious and indulgent things like pizzas and pastas and deserts. My girlfriend is a vegetarian and she was pleasantly surprised by the choices on offer. We ended up eating here much more than we had initially intended, which can only be a good sign.
The all inclusive drinks were fine for what they were - all inclusive. I stayed mainly on the local beer. However, my girlfriend was not a fan of the white wine. We also had a couple of spirits and mixer over the week but we did avoid the cocktails on the advice of a number of the reviews we had read beforehand.
Of the 2 pool areas, we found the lower more to our taste, with a picturesque setting including the blue water and white bridge across the swimming pool (I plastered this all over my social media for the during of our stay). The snacks on offer from 10am to 11pm at the pool bar areas included sandwiches, cakes and ice cream, along with water, soft drinks, coffees and alcohol.
We had read complaints before arriving of a bad smell of sewage around the hotel but to be honest we only noticed this a handful of times, mostly at night and only at the lower pool bar. It was definitely not something that would defer me from staying here again.
In the area around the hotel - the beach is less than a 5min walk away, with more than enough sun loungers and lots of choice for boat trips and water sports for good value. There is a mini market both in the hotel across the road and a bigger one down the road about a 5min walk away. We also made use of the spa in the hotel opposite for a couples massage while we were there for a great rate. The Azurro bar about a 5min walk down the road was also a great spot we found with a lovely ambience for cocktails at night and an amazing view during the day.
It was a 10min and €10 taxi from the hotel in to Lindos itself, a journey which we made about 3 times over the week. Lindos is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and is a must if you are staying close by. The winding streets have a copious amount of little shops, ice cream parlours, restaurants and bars and the view of the acropolis from almost everywhere makes its especially scenic.
Overall, we had an amazing week in Lindos White and it is definitely somewhere I would recommend for couples looking for a relaxing and chilled out break.
