“Best kept secret in Puerto Vallarta”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

When you arrive at this little piece of paradise a mile or so out of Old Town all you see is a one story unimpressive building. However, when you walk into the lobby you are instantly transported back to the time of Old Mexico. The small check in desk is staffed by the most courteous, helpful staff imaginable! The 7 levels of the hotel are all below with the lower level opening to an intimate pool area, an outstanding but not lavish restaurant, and a picturesque beach area boasting wonderful snorkeling onsite. The rooms are colorful and very comfortable, and every one has a majestic view of Banderas Bay. It's an easy walk to town, or the buses are very accessible. There are always cabs awaiting you right at the front door, and they are reasonably priced. Maria Elena, the concierge is very helpful is planning activities and tours. Our favorite restaurant was Isabel's....a short cab ride up the hill for a panoramic view. We love this place!

Room Tip: All rooms have water view. If you are choosing a 2 bedroom ask for the 'deluxe' as the maste...

Our first ever family vacation was just spent at the wonderful Lindo Mar resort! Authentic charm, matched with fabulous views out each suite. Beautiful flowers, comfortable pool/hot tub area, awesome restaurant on-site. The beach area is beautiful and the staff is wonderful. Close to a bus stop to get to Old Town or taxi's are always on hand. This resort is relaxing and beautiful. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back...

If you are headed to Puerto Vallarta, try staying at this gem of a place. It's close to Old Town (maybe a 60 peso ride or 15 minute walk) so you are close to bars and restaurants but far enough away so it's pretty quiet. The staff are very friendly and never hassle you to buy a time share, which is common in P.V. The beach is fantastic and you can even get freshly caught oysters caught by local fisherman just off the beach.

Room Tip: Stay on one of the higher floors so you are far enough away from the pool area.

Just returned for yet another great week staying at the lovely Lindo Mar Resort. There is no place I'd rather stay. It offers the winning combination of beautiful beachfront location, charming, spacious and comfortable accommodations (all with balconies facing directly out to the sea), a wonderful casual open-air restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and TWO daily happy hours! All of that is great, but the very best thing about Lindo Mar is all of the wonderful people who work there. The entire staff is exceptional: all so friendly and helpful, always with a smile and a greeting. They make Lindo Mar truly feel like home-away-from-home and they make you feel like a welcome family member returning for a visit. Franklin and his staff at the front desk, the bell staff, the sweet and gracious Maria Elena at the concierge desk, the housekeeping staff who keep the place spotlessly clean, the grounds staff who tend to the gardening and keep the pool sparkling, Ivan and Jorge at the beach/towel stand, Jesus, Francisco, Isidiro, Luis, Leonardo,Felix, Raul and all of the other great servers and staff at the restaurant and bar, the security team, all of them are so professional at what they do, but also so warm and friendly that it makes returning to Lindo Mar really something to look forward to. A big THANK YOU to all the staff at Lindo Mar, and hope to see you all again next December!

Lindo Mar is a "beyond the best" place to stay in Puerto Vallarta. Relaxation, great food, excellent service and on the beach. What more is to be sought? One stay at Lindo Mar, and surely you'll reserve to return soon - or next year - but for sure you will return.

This was our third time staying at Lindo Mar, and we had a great time as always. Lindo Mar is a relaxing hotel, right on the beach. The food there is delicious and reasonably priced, and the drinks are tasty too. Service is friendly, and you always feel safe and secure.

We love the location, which is away from town. If you want to go into town, the restaurants and shops are about a 20 minute walk away along the beach - and a 5 minute/$50 Peso cab ride back. There is a convenience store a few minutes walk away where you can go quickly to grab snacks or drinks.

The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. All the rooms have a kitchen and, more importantly, an ocean view.

I'm sure we will be back in a year or two.

Absolutely beautiful views and beautiful staff... Everyone here is great, the team at the restaurant, Luis, Isidiro, Leonardo, Jesus... These guys are great and take care of you. The hotel is clean, rooms are kept up and the overall experience is fantastic. The gentlemen checking you in are very nice and very informative. Maria will also give you great suggestions for tours, massages etc!

Room Tip: Floors 5 and higher have great views!!!!
