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.

I must say that this is one of the best and most enjoyable hotels I have ever stayed at. The place is beautiful and the staff makes you feel comfortable and welcomed.

We have driven past the Lindo Mar for a few years and never looked twice. When I looked it up on the website I was so so in what I felt but not discouraged about staying there.

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!!

First, a disclosure...we own 3 weeks at Lindo Mar, from about 2/15 to about 3/8 every year. That being said, we can honestly say that Lindo Mar provides an absolutely amazing experience as long as you are not looking for the kind of sleek,impersonal, American-style highrise hotel that can be found elsewhere in Vallarta. Lindo Mar is small -- 44... More

Since I don't like mega resorts or all inclusives, this pretty much fit the bill and the rooms were very charming and we had a great view.
