This was our 7th visit to Puerto Vallarta and the Lindo Mar was a generally positive experience. The room was nicely decorated and well-equipped. The water jug was a great amentity. We found the place nicer than the reviews would lead us to believe. The bathroom was a little small (but very nciely designed) and the bedroom was dark. The staff was friendly and helpful and the building was fairly clean.
The pool was a bit small and not good for kids and adults at the same time. Our 6-year old enjoyed it nonetheless. There are a few 1st floor rooms right by the pool, and the pool is part of their patio and that's OK if you've got kids. If not, don't stay there...get a higher room. The beach was smaller than we expected and competely disappeared at high tide. The surrounding rocks were interesting and made for good snorkeling, but the water was a bit cold this year. At night, the little crabs were a ball to chase around.
The poolside bar and restaurant was nice and the food was very good but we explored mostly other eateries. Happy hour wasn't as lively as we like, but we usually head downtown then, anyway. The bus was convenient and we rarely needed a taxi, but took one once in a while.
I didn't like using their computers but they have wi-fi in the bar and lobby for a small fee. The time-share regulars were friendly and we finally got to see our first Green Flash. The weight room was nicely equipped and working, but seemed isolated. The location was not too far from town and there were few beach vendors.
