“Great place to stay in PV”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

Like the previous reviewer which I found very helpful, my 17yr old daughter and I stayed at the Lindo Mar for a week. The rooms are so lovely and well designed. yes, there was a full kitchen but the restaurant was so surprisingly good that I did not find a need to cook. The staff for both the hotel part and the restaurant part were cordial and helpful. This is not a place to stay if you like fancy resorts. It was perfect for us. We felt like we were staying in Mexico with very clean amenities. The water was already filtered but they provided bottled water in the room. It was so great to have a room that was looked out onto the ocean and we could hear the roar of the waves as they crashed along the rocky coast in front of the resort. We would most definitely return.

Room Tip: I liked it that our room was not over the pool. Otherwise it would be hard to have a bad room here.

My daughter and I recently returned from a fabulous week in Puerto Vallarta at the Lindo Mar Resort, just south of town. It was thoroughly relaxing with an outstanding staff. Every room offers an ocean view which you can enjoy the minute you walk in. There is a veranda in each room which overlooks Banderas Bay where you can sit at a table and enjoy with your morning coffee. Each unit has a full kitchen, dining area, and sitting area with the view. The bedroom and bathroom are at the rear of the unit. Everything is tastefully decorated in older Mexican motif, which we loved. The rooms are very clean and absent of insects!

The restaurant is right on the beach and open-sided so you can feel the ocean breeze and delight in the sunsets. The service and food is outstanding!

My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful massage in our room with the doors to the veranda open, listening to the waves crash on the beach--so relaxing!!

We did hear some noise from the ground level early in the morning, which came up by the bedroom. If you are an early riser--by 7:00 this is no problem.

I have been home for over a week now and still long to return. I will definitely go back!!

Thanks again to the staff at Lindo Mar!!

Room Tip: We had a corner unit which offered a view up the coast toward town as well as the gorgeous view from...

This was our first time to Mexico and we stayed with friends who have a time share here. Amazing Staff, very friendly and helpful, even with your Spanish lol. Beach is smaller but private, rooms are clean and very cute with old Mexican charm. We had massages in our suite and the restaurant truly has the friendliest staff! Maria will definitely help you if you need a car for a day (delivered to the door of the hotel) and she will book any tours you would like to do as well. Again i cannot stress how friendly the staff are and if your looking for the old Mexican charm, this is the cute, quiet, clean and friendly place to go!! We are heading back with our family in December...it was that good of a stay!! 5 out of 5 for sure!!

Room Tip: there are no bad rooms as ALL the suites have ocean view!!

Lindo Mar in April was delightful- perfect weather and a charming condo with bright blue, yellow, and orange decor to enhance the Mexican look. At 25 years old, it shows a little wear and the kitchen is outdated, but the views are spectacular, the room spacious, the staff friendly. Super job, Maria, Franklin, Nemecia!! The bayside restaurant serves good food and "killer" drinks. The location is perfect- a little south of the Romantic Zone, ( taking the bus is easy and cheap!! ) The rocky beach is lovely. Housekeeping is wonderful-everything is spotless.
Take the El Tuito bus to the Botanical Gardens and have lunch at the Haciendo de Oro. The Naval Museum on the Malecon was not only interesting ,but has a great restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Near the Cathedral is a wonderful vegetarian restaurant named Planeta Vegetarian. Breakfast at Fonda Esperanza with locals was delightful. On Mon. and Tues. go to Hacienda Alemana for 50% off food. The best mole I ever had could be found at El Mole de Jovita. A fish and shrimp taco stand called Marisma's was fantastic! Enjoy a bit of paradise like we did.

Room Tip: All rooms have an ocean view. Rooms on floors 1 and 2 can be noisy due to the closeness to the rest...

Beautiful views from every room! Clean, friendly staff, GREAT location. The food is great! You learn really quick when "happy hour" begins and ends. Cab fair was 50 pesos into town. Very nice, looking forward to staying there again! Amazing sunsets!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are great. Floors 4 and higher have full view of the ocean.

We had a great stay and loved our room, the restaurant, the views, and the service. Our only complaints were that 1) the beach area is small and surrounded by rocks on both sides, which made it impossible to stroll along the beach, 2) our specific room (205) could be a bit noisy on account of its proximity to the restuarant. We really loved this place, though, and hope that we can go back again soon!

We arrived at Lindo Mar on a Saturday afternoon just in time for an early dinner and Happy Hour! (The taxi ride from the airport is not for the faint-hearted! Just imagine a real-life free-for-all… but don’t worry, just relax… everyone seems to know what to do. However, as you will quickly learn, pedestrians do NOT have the right of way!!) Because the building is on a hillside... it's kind of unusual to ride the elevator DOWN to your room. Our suite was on the first floor overlooking the pool and the restaurant. Everything was nicely appointed and ready when we arrived around 4:00.

We had dinner during Happy Hour at the open-air on site restaurant overlooking the beach and the ocean…. great for watching the sunset. Warning: I would stop at two… maybe three margaritas! :-) The fajitas were the best I have ever had!

The resort is a little south of the town, but within an easy half-hour, mostly downhill walk. However, the first ten minutes or so on the trail next to the highway can be a little scary. There is no sidewalk, it is very uneven, there are big holes, and there is no guardrail! But once you get to Calle Amapas, you can leave the main highway and continue downhill on a quiet and mostly traffic free street all the way into town. After your day exploring in town, you can take a cab back to the resort for 50 Pesos or the bus for 7 Pesos.

For a nice day trip, take the bus (the bus stop is a little north of Lindo Mar) along with the locals, south along the coast to the little fishing village of Boca where you can enjoy an afternoon on the beach. On the way, you will pass the zoo, and the location where the movie The Night of the Iguana was filmed. Don’t forget your sunscreen and a hat! :-)
