I brought my new wife here in 2007. I had been many times before, with the lads, with my 1st wife, with my children. It was our 1st holiday together and I was anxious, she might not like it as much as I did. We arrived in the evening and were deposited at reception by the shuttle bus and we followed the directions to our accommodation, dropped our bags and stepped out. My wife was very quiet as we walked down the main street. I decided to show her the bay and dropped into the Rainbird Bar to be greeted by Nikos. "Welcome home" he said...
My wife cried. We've been back every year since and are already booked for next year !!!

I am going to Lindos for the fourteenth time on Saturday and cannot wait. We see the same locals running the bars and restaurants every year and they are the friendliest people you could ever wish to meet. The bars are great, The Rock Bar, The Museum Bar and the restaurants are very special most of them being terrace restaurants overlooking the village. There are no cars in the village and its little winding cobbled streets are beautiful. St Paulis bay and the main beaches are great all in all a fantastic holiday every time we go. Everyone you meet in Lindos has been there many times before and we will never stop visiting.

Finished the novel, Seven Tears For Apollo, by Phyllis A. Whitney, only about 3 hours ago. The setting is on the Isle of Rhodes, with visits to other islands, Lindos being one.
In a short statement in the front of the book the author writes that (this is a paraphrase) no matter how she tried she could not describe the enchantment of Rhodes.
It was a wonderful book. I recommend it.
If I can't make the journey there in person. This book was a nice way to visit! Thanks to the wonderful (late) author, Phyllis A. Whitney for that!

I love Lindos sooo much! going again this year and i'm counting down the days. It is our second visit and I am going with my parents and my 3 younger siblings. I love walking down to the town in the morning, buying some orange juice, standing at the sides of the paths and watching the donkeys galloping by, walking down the hill to the beach and finally diving into the cool, gentle, shallow sea. I can picture it in my head right now as I do everyday... Lindos is the most beautiful part of Greece by far! visit now! or you'll be missing out!

We got married at St Pauls Chapel on St Pauls Bay. The most beautiful, romantic place on earth!! All the locals congratulated us and we had cheers from all sun-worshippers on the beach. Fabulous, going back again this year!!! Our wedding planner Karen from Lindos Weddings is the most amazing and wonderful lady and her team are 100% supportive. Everyone should go and visit this beautiful place.

When landing on Rhodes for the first time more than 25yrs ago we didn't have any accommodation booked. We asked the taxi driver to take us to the nicest place on the Island. He took us to Lindos - and we were not disapointed! I have never been disapointed on any of my many return trips back either.
It has everything. History. Quaint mystical charm. NO traffic. Few or no louts or troublemakers. Great food - friendly people with fantastic memories - they can remember you often with a gap of 5 or 6 years between trips. Its is clean, safe for a woman alone at night. Its classicaly tasteful - varied - familiar - fun... The list is endless...
But most of all - from that first trip all those years ago - it stole my heart and my soul - I weep both when I arrive and everytime I leave - its is my spiritual home - my heart lives there and I feel whole when I am there.
I want my remains scattered there when I pass from this world morbid tho it sounds - but I can remain there forever then and maybe you will hear my laughter in the soft evening breeze in years to come.
Blessings always - yammas xxx

My Daughter and I will be traveling on the 12 August 09, I have choose Lindos due to the beautiful comments on past and present visits to this Island. I feel that this will be a magical trip for us both my daughter Jas and I will be staying in a self catering as we don't want to be tired to any one place and explore this wonderful Island. Perhaps I'm still a young girl at heart and am expecting the knights of the castle to come and rescue me that why I choose this place because of its history and the stories of the Islands welcoming hospitality of local folk. I will be taking my drawing pad to sketch and may be paint the beautiful colours of this Golden Island and crystal blue waters. So do place come and say hello if you see me drawing and a warm smile forthcoming. Will write soon and tell you of my magical trip!

First time to Rhodos. Stayed in 5* (Greek 5*) initially disappointed but once problems sorted, every thing was fine & had a fantastic time. Rhodos is a great island with so much to see & do. Probably going back next year.

The weathers good, the people are brilliant and there is loads to do if you want it.

I should act as a travel agent for the place cos I have convinced so many of my friends to try it! you wont be disapointed.

My husband Jim and I started going to Lindos 11 years ago, we like so many others fell in love with it. We called it our haven we returned year after year it always felt as if we were going home not on holiday.
Sadly my husband died last year but his wishes were to have his ashes scattered under the warm Lindos sunshine. His wishes were granted this year and he has a beautiful resting place. He is probably sipping a cold amstel right now watching the sun go down. One day I will join him but until that day I am left with so many wonderful memories of dancing in the Courtyard bar watching the flames in the sixties bar, candle lit dinners in Stephanies and long lunches with a few ouzos in the Mythos overlooking the bay, lazing on the pallas beach, wonderful times & wonderful memories how lucky we were!

We have gone to lindos for last five years and love it more everytime. After visiting several other greek islands that was lovely in their own way lindos is so unique. Lovely beaches and good resturants and some great bars the people are so friendly. Views from the acropolis are stunning we will be comeing back for many years to come. Rhodes old town is worth a visit.

The first time I went to Lindos was about 25 years ago, then consequently went 7 years running after that. Haven't been since but planning to go back in 2 weeks - can't wait. Do go, it's one of the most beautifull places in Greek Isles.

Commented by Jay August 29, 2007

Going back to Lindos in august. This will be our third year in a row. We have fell in love with Lindos and the locals are like family, they are so friendly and remember you when we go back. I would say to anyone wanting a lovely holiday go to Lindos. You won't regret it.

Commented by heather July 23, 2007

I have been visiting lindos for over 30 years and every time I see the villiage from the main road I feel that I am home. Not much has changed over the years except more sun shades on the beach and the constant change of bars and resurants. The sun always shines and the sea always clear and the village offers something for all tastes. I have a good friend in the villiage who I have known for nearly 30 years and who always makes me and my family welcome. So if you want a relaxing stress free holiday with plenty of sun good food and good bars (you must visit bar 60's). Lindos is for you.

Commented by Trevor July 18, 2007

Anyone who has been to Lindos can only give it one description... MAGICAL!!! Going back for the 4th time just cannot get enough of the place. Me and my Kids stay in Vlicha (the Yota) and the sunrise over the Aegean you cannot compare it with anywhere else. I've done the Carribean and the Indian Ocean, Put it this way, as beautiful as these places are, they dont have the lure of Lindos as I've never revisited them. So If you are still unsure of booking for Lindos, you really are missing out!!!

Commented by LindosQueen May 23, 2007

Lindos well I have been going for the past 7 years, sometimes twice a year. It is heaven on earth, so lovely my daughter and I have been on a couple trips and I am going this year in July with my eldest daughter. My husband came last year and like me he fell in love with Lindos.
We have made really good friends with a couple and their two children, we the locals so helpfull. And they even remember you from the past year! I would live there given a chance might happen one day :)

Lindos is the most magical place i have ever been to in Greece. I have been to many places in Greece but i have to say that Lindos was the most beautiful place I have stayed in. Although busy in the day at night Lindos comes alive. I can recommend Lindos to anyone who is thinking of going. If you don't go you will regret it. So go and enjoy the beauty of Lindos.

Best place ever! I absolutely love it, those who know,know! it has something you cannot describe!

Commented by Maximus from the Wirral! January 06, 2007

A place not to be missed, wonderful small alleys, small shops some very classy, some selling holiday nick knacks. Great bars and restaurants delivering traditional as well european food. Not for people who can't deal with hill walks as beach is a fair walk especially Pallas beach, although you can take the donkey ride which are really the only hasard you find when walking the small alleys that you can't get a mini down. Accomodation can vary and is generally basic although try some of the very good villas that can be found if travelling with a larger party. Beware of accomodation that says Lindos but either sits you at the very top of the village with a 5 minute walk down and a 15 minute walk back, also a couple of very good hotels but these are taxi rides away.
Can't complain with the people, you treat them right and you won't get friendly people who will offer you a long term friendship.
Been going since 1981 and still think it is one of the best Greek resorts I've visited.

Having been going to Lindos since I was 12 in 1979 (which makes me oohh 21 now !!!) I can only say that it is a fantastic place. The locals never fail to make you feel welcome and can never do enough for you. As there are no cars allowed in the village it is great for kids and the beaches are lovely with lots of shallows for the children to play in. My daughter now wants to live there!! GO - have a holiday to remember, you won't regret it !!!!
