We exchanged our timeshare to Lindo Mar based on the reviews from Tripadvisor and are so happy we did. This place is amazing. Very rarely do my wife and I just "hang out" at our hotel when traveling, but we truly didn't want to wander from it. The views are spectacular, the restaurant exceeded our expectations, the beach is small... More

Wonderful location, service and accommodations. Lindo Mar is one of Puerto Vallarta's little gems. Tucked away on a cliff-side, when you pull to the timeshare (PS-it's a timeshare from how I booked, not sure if it can be booked without having a timeshare but worth checking into) one might think it's a ranch style resort. (To be honest, I was... More

Stayed here for 3 night just to check it out and see what all the rave was about. Well people are right, this hotel has a certain charm that is hard to find nowadays when I walked in to the hotel I felt like I was in Mexico. Our room was a 2 bedroom suite and when we walked in... More

We appreciate your positive comments about Lindo Mar. Next time you’re here, ask for a two-bedroom deluxe unit. In those, the master bedroom is in the front and has an ocean view. More

Lindo Mar is a small resort that offers a humble, authentic Mexican feeling. The rooms are clean and kept up well. The furniture is a little worn, but I guess that's to be expected with so many guests. The view and sound of the ocean from the balcony was wonderful and very relaxing. I really don't have anything bad to... More

Thank you for your positive review of Lindo Mar. Of course, we wish you would always stay with us but we understand your desire to be close to the malecon. If you visit us in the future, use the local bus service to get downtown. It costs less than $1.00 and will let you experience another aspect of the local... More

The staff is very rude and not helpful, especially Ivan, who is in charge of the outside area (swimming pool and beach beds). Hope the management takes better care of the tourists that visit them in Puerto Vallarta.

As a new owner who purchased sight unseen, I was plesently surprised with the natural beauty at Lindo Mar. Everyone was pleasant, the food was delicious and the rooms were immaculate! Ten years going to PV and now I have my home away from home!!
