“Great atmosphere.”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

If you sometimes try to avoid those posh mega resorts that are duplicated over and over everywhere...then try the Lindo Mar. The resort is showing some age but it looks like they are upgrading bit by bit. For example, new air conditioners were being put in as we were there. We used the onsite restaurant and bar almost daily as the prices and service were very good and I love eating waterfront. We enjoyed sitting and watching a local fisherman clean his catch and feed the pelicans. Our pictures are from a 2 bdm semi-penthouse but all rooms have a minimum livingroom view. We will very likely return one day.

Room Tip: There are two types of 2 bdms. The deluxe have the livingroom and the master bedroom facing the spec...

This is a nice, quiet and quaint resort. Restaurant serves great and affordable food. Everyone working at the resort treated us very kindly - and we'll definitely be coming back for another visit next year. The ocean views are outstanding - and the sunsets were spectacular. The staff keeps the place extremely clean - and the rooms were cleaned daily! Maria set us up on three exciting activities through Adventure Tours (ziplining, snorkeling and swimming with the dolphins). All three activities were a blast. The snorkeling is fun right off the beach - and the rocks that are out in the water help create a very nice floating area, where we could just sit in the calm water, drink cocktails, and watch the sunsets. Fabulous!

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor, and the view was fantastic. It was nice to be able to take the stairs fro...

This was our first time to Lindo Mar and to Puerto Vallarta. Beautiful place with stunning views. Our room opened out to the pool, very convenient. The rooms were very well kept and had everything we needed. The restaurant and staff was excellent. Booked a zip lining trip through Maria Elena, it was awesome!! Bus and taxi service from the resort were very easy. And having the Oxxo close by was great! Very relaxing vacation!

We continue to be very pleased with our timeshare at Lindo Mar. From the street Lindo Mar appears very unassuming but once inside you will find a delightful Mexican treasure. Every room has a spectacular ocean view. The colorful rooms are tastefully decorated with dark wood and mexican tile accents. It is a small resort with a nice pool which while on the small side, is plenty big enough for the number of units in the resort. There was never an issue with finding a lounge chair or a table.

The staff is part of the Lindo Mar charm. Many of them are long time employees and treat you like returning family. Maria Elena, the concierge, is the heart of Lindo Mar. Her knowledge, friendliness, and willingness to make sure that your stay is special is so refreshing.

My low rating on the spa does not refelect the quality of the services only the poor location. I do wish that the management would find nicer accommodations for the spa since their current location is not much more then a large closet. Please don't let that stop you from taking advantage of spa services. You will however find the ladies give first rate massages and pedicures and your best bet is to have them done in your room by the balcony, listening to the gentle lap of the waves. We had three therapeutic massages by Mary and oh how I wish I could have stuffed her in my suitcase :-)

We always enjoy dining at La Playita and this time the onsite restaurant even exceeded our expectations. The food is delicious, the view breathtaking, and the staff attentive to all your dining needs. I especially enjoyed their Enchilada's Dona Paula, a shrimp and cheese concoction with a salsa verde sauce. We travelled with our two boys ages nine and ten and the staff made menu adjustments for their smaller and mroe finicky appetities.

The beach was perfect for our family. The rocky outcroppings provided an ideal spot for our guys to snorkel. Because it is a bay the waves were gentle and I was comfortable with the boys going in the water by themselves while I watched from the beach. did I mention the incredible sunsets?

I could go on and on but you get the picture I'm sure. We love LIndo Mar and enjoy each and every stay there!

Lindo Mar is THE BEST place to stay in Puerto Vallarta, bar none! The apartments are well appointed and equipped and are clean; facilities such as pool, hot tub, gym and amazing concierge.. All for the guests to enjoy. Food in the restaurant is the best and the waiters are even better; the sunsets are stunning. All the staff are helpful and friendly. An excellent resort all round!

Room Tip: All are ocean front and personal preference is on the 3rd to 6th floor.

I have stayed at Lindo Mar 3 times. I keep coming back because I love it there. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The rooms have great ocean views. This is not a fancy resort, but a quiet comfortable place to relax. The hotel is just a 5 minute, 7 peso bus ride from town. I will probably be back for my fourth stay next year...

Room Tip: The **5 rooms(405, 505 etc) are a little noisy in the morning, as the bedroom window is across from...

We LOVE Lindo Mar and have been going there for 20 years! Right on the beach, the view from every room couldn't be better. It is super clean. And all of the staff are wonderful! But our favorite place is at La Playita! The restaurant is downstairs and AMAZING! The food is phenomenal and the waiters are great! Lindo Mar exceeds our expectations every time!
