We stayed near Lindos, a town located about 50 km south of Rhodes Town and the airport. With its charming narrow streets and whitewash buildings together with warm shallow sea and golden beaches, Lindos is a popular holiday resort with British and other European visitors. Holidaymakers relax and enjoy views of the acropolis from the many rooftop bars and terraces.
The beaches are lined with bars and restaurants and various boat trips are available.
As a hotel, the Lindos Imperial was great… we had half board meaning a decent buffet breakfast and excellent buffet meal each evening. We had a clean and spacious suite with a balcony in a quiet block overlooking one of several pools. There was a lot of families, a programme of entertainment and a gym, hairdresser and spa. You can get all inclusive too.
However, while maybe a good option for a traditional family beach holiday, 4 days in a large bustling hotel was enough for me! My preference would be a small traditional bed & breakfast with a handful of rooms and easy access to local tavernas in the evening.
Finally a small shout out to Holiday Taxis, an airport shuttle service. Easy to book the transfers online, the service was on time both for the arrival and return journey’s and in a comfortable modern mini bus. I would recommend to anyone visiting Rhodes!
