“Try It - You Will Like It”
Reviewed 24 August 2010

Just returned from my second stay at the Lindo Mar. The units are charming and every one of them has a gorgeous view of the ocean. The beach is small and clean, the water is clear and the snorkeling is good, as is the restaurant which is right at the water. Transportation is easy (just a short walk up the road is a bus stop where you can catch a bus into town for about 55 cents), or catch one of the many taxis which are always readily available out front. No, it is not a five star luxury resort - it is a pleasant and extremely comfortable, well equipped condominium. The staff is friendly and the maid service is good. Try it - I think you are going to like it.

This was our third trip to PV, and our first time to stay outside of the Romantic Zone. We decided upon the Lindo Mar primarily because of the excellent snorkeling that the beach, Conchas Chinas, offers, some of the best in PV. The volcanic rock formations that the area is known for make for excellent snorkeling right off the beach, just steps away from the Lindo Mar, no tour required. This alone makes for a fantastic trip. Everything else about the resort made for the best vacation that both my wife and I have ever taken. The staff was very professional, attentive, and pleasant. The surprisingly spacious room immediately felt like home. And the view, facing out onto the Pacific, was second to none. The area is only a 5 minute cab or bus ride from the busy Romantic Zone, but the pace at Conchas Chinas is much more relaxing. PV has become our favorite vacation destination. I will never stay anywhere else but the Lindo Mar.

We exchanged one of our Maui timeshare weeks for Lindo Mar and it exceeded our expectations! There may be guests that are disappointed because the appliances are brand spanking new, but all appliances worked and the resort is very clean. The entire staff was very helpful and responded immediately to all requests. I had not expected the beach to be raked of excess shells & chaise lounges to be set out every morning, for a waiter to ask if I wanted anything from the restaurant while sitting by the pool, for the towels to be sculpted into swans, what wonderful surprises! The staff was friendly and encouraged us to try a little Spanish each day.
We ate 3 dinners at the restaurant and all 4 of us enjoyed each meal. Although the water visibility was a little less than crystal clear (I attribute it to being the rainy season) every time my husband went snorkeling right at the resort's beach, he saw at least one manta ray (swimming south). The local bus service is very dependable and the stop is less than a block from the resort, we honestly did not miss a rental car. We are already planning to exchange into this resort again !

This was our third rental at the Lindo Mar. We love the two bedroom deluxe unit which works well with our college age children. The master is basically a large hotel suite with its own balcony. The view just is unbeatable. We spend most of our days on the beach in front of the resort and take a quick cab or bus into town at night for dinner. Love having the kitchen to keep it stocked with breakfast/lunch items or just order from the restaurant if too lazy to leave the beach chair.

Looking forward to visit 4 next year!

We had a wonderful time at the Lindo Mar the last week in Sept., first week in October of 2009. Our one bedroom condo on the fifth floor had a great oceanfront view. The staff (front desk, maids, security) was outstanding. Although we didn’t purchase a time share, it probably was one of the first times that we seriously considered it. The only thing we didn’t care for was that the bedroom was located near the stairwell and at night this could be a little noisy. Although the rooms are a little dated, we liked the charm of this resort. Otherwise, we loved it. We had brunch at the restaurant twice on the two Sundays we stayed and it was excellent. Although the pool was small, it was perfectly fine for a cooling dip. We spent most time at the little beach and enjoyed swimming and snorkeling. We also loved this location as we could easily take the bus to the south side where there are so many good restaurants. We also took the El Tuito bus to the Botanical Gardens and the tunnel bus to get to Wal-Mart. Rizo’s super market was a quick bus ride away for groceries. The kitchen at the Lindo Mar had a full refrigerator, stove, most dishes, pots that you would need. Our maid was the best and we made sure she had a good tip plus small items for her personal use and for her kids. This was our 30th trip to Puerto Vallarta, first time at Lindo Mar and definitely will not be the last one here.

My husband and I just returned from our 23rd yearly vacation at Lindo Mar...that's right, we've been owners for 23 years and have never, EVER traded. We started out with a 1-bedroom, traded up to a 2-bedroom, traded up to a 2-bedroom-deluxe and 13 years ago traded up to the 2-bedroom-loft penthouse on the 7th floor. It is our second home, and only wish we had more than just 2 weeks. We got home yesterday, alas! We have become close family friends with all the employees as well as with other owners who return every year just as we do, and it's been fun to watch their kids grow up over all these years. Everyone we have brought down with us has ended up buying...I'm serious. The place just sells itself...it doesn't need a hard sell. We paid to have wifi in our unit...it was great!

I have to say I had such a good time at Lindo Mar! The people at the resort couldn't be any nicer, I thought they were incredible! Everyone tries to talk to you to say welcome and are you enjoying your stay? My maid was so nice, what a wonderful lady.
The room was a little old but way nice, and everything was cleaned daily. No cleanliness issues! The room had hand carved Mexican furniture, and pretty tile, I thought it was charming. I loved that there was a full kitchen and dining room! Plenty of room for 2 people (you could have 2 couples no problem). The beach was beautiful, the pool great! The people I talked to had been coming for years, and they loved it, they didn't think you could do better. Everyone lines up at happy hour for cocktails, it's funny!
I don't agree with the negative reviews, if you want hi tech resort you should be in town not at the Lindo Mar! Also, if you are single this place could be lonely for you as there are so many couples here. And it's not wild young people, an older clientele I would say.
This is a charming resort that has been around, it has an old fashion feel to it that appeals to me, but I would rather have a place that has some history to it, I don't like cold modern. The restaurant is delicious! The specials of the day were always really good, and the brunch buffet on the weekend is fantastic!
I really enjoyed and would come again!
