The architect owners created Casita Casita with friends in mind, wanting it to feel like a welcoming home for all those that visit, so staff take care to get to know you – and the atmosphere is super laid-back (no young children allowed). It has just seven (very stylish) suites, some with sea views, two with terraces, all with earthy tones and a sprinkling of ethnic furnishings. Rise early for spectacular sunrises over the sea and Greek breakfasts served beneath the old olive trees. Then head off to explore ancient Lindos and its gorgeous beach (both a five-minute walk from here), or just loll about by the pool and drink in that timeless view. We've always loved Lindos, and this seems the perfect reason to revisit.
- Handy location on the edge of medieval Lindos – away from the bustle but easily walkable to the old town and beach (5 mins)
- Beautifully styled suites with ethnic-chic interiors and sea or garden views
- The staff are extremely welcoming and go out of their way to make you feel at home
- A very relaxed vibe: hammocks in trees, pool with sunloungers, a chillout bar, adults only
- The Mediterranean breakfasts (Greek yoghurt, honey, fresh pastries), served in leafy surroundings
- Try and avoid Friday and Saturday nights in summer, as there is loud noise from a neighbouring open-air night club
- Lindos, generally, can get very busy between June and September; you are right on the road between Lindos village and the beach, so expect some passing traffic, especially in high season
- No dinner service, but restaurants are a short walk away
- No twin rooms
- The pool is more of a dipping pool than one for swimming in – but the Med is only 5 minutes away

The seven suites are all slightly different in layout, but all share the same basic design: showers, shelves, recesses and bed platforms are cast in concrete, the floors are polished cement and the mostly-white interiors are decorated with a few well-chosen artefacts, sourced locally and from around the world: a woven rug from Turkey, perhaps, an embroidered throw, a collection of earthenware pots, an antique ceramic, or a handcrafted side table made by a Greek artisan. Beds are all kingsize and come with handmade toppers. You also get ensuite shower cubicles with separate toilets, TVs, minibars and Nespresso machines.
Deluxe and King suites are the most affordable options. The beds are slightly raised, separated from living areas by soft, linen drapes. If you want views of the Med, opt for a King suite with sea view. The split-level suites have beds on mezzanines and living areas below. We stayed in one of two larger Deluxe King suites each with a private terrace that opens onto the garden – both furnished like an outdoor room with chairs, cushions, rugs and wicker coffee tables.

Breakfasts at Casita Casita are a real treat. They are prepared in an open kitchen and are served at rustic tables in the shade of ancient olive trees. The emphasis is on traditional Greek products – yoghurt, fruit, fresh bread and pastries (gluten-free alternatives on request), local honey and nuts, dried figs, a tasty Cretan salad (tomatoes, cucumber, feta cheese, herbs and barley rusk or dried bread), plus eggs cooked to order.
No other meals are served here, but they do offer a poolside brunch menu, menu (Greek salads, toasties and sandwiches) plus there’s a bar for chilled beers and sundowner cocktails.
For lunch or dinner, try Maria’s in the heart of Lindos village for old-fashioned Greek-taverna dishes with a twist; or Palestra on the main beach (5 mins’ walk) for fresh fish and seafood, seaside sunbeds and views of the Acropolis.

- Explore the souk-like cobbled alleyways, shops and ancient architecture of Lindos town (5 mins' walk). Find a bar with an Acropolis view in the village square, and don't miss the ornate frescoes in the 14th-century Church of Panagia
- Walk up to the Acropolis and look back at the spectacular panoramic views (go early or late to avoid the crowds)
- Head to the town beach (5 mins' walk), which is sandy and shallow, or venture further to busy but beautiful St Paul’s Bay (25 mins’ walk)
- Take a boat out for the day, or go diving, kayaking, snorkelling, waterskiing and fishing in Lindos Bay
- Back at the hotel, relax with a massage or join a yoga session (ask staff to arrange this for you)
- Visit Rhodes old town, a stunningly preserved Crusader fortress (50 mins' drive), with cobbled alleys and magnificent medieval architecture
- The island of Halki makes for a lovely day trip (1 hour by boat from Kamiros Skala). Here you'll find beautifully clear waters, a lovely village and an end-of-the-world atmosphere
Casita Casita only welcomes children over the age of 14. Most rooms have sofabeds for one extra guest, but the vibe is very relaxed and better suited to couples.
