We recently stayed at the is resort. We have been owners of a week since the mid 80's. The staff is excellent! helpful, friendly, the best. From the front desk to the beach and towel manager. But the rooms need a good cleaning, the floor tiles in bathroom of our unit, very dirty. bulbs burned out, bathtube faucet broken. And... More

This place is charming. We just spent a week at this great little resort located south of Puerto Vallarta. It feels Mexican and has excellent Mexican service. The restaurant is located right on their pocket beach and is quite good. Our only problem was that the margaritas were too strong.

We just returned from two weeks at this lovely little resort tucked away on the beach in the Conchas Chinas area of Puerto Vallarta. If you are looking for marble, glass, chrome, activites, clubs...this is not your place. If you are looking for Mexican charm in a charming boutique hotel where every room is ocean front view then you have... More

Just returned from a week at the wonderful Lindo Mar Resort. Stayed there for the first time last year. We have stayed elsewhere in Vallarta previously (always south of town), but having discovered Lindo Mar, there is no reason to go anywhere else! It is an older property and doesn't have a lot of fancy bells and whistles, and we... More

We traveled to Conchas Chinas, and truly enjoyed being "off the beaten path". 7 pesos to take the bus, 50-150 pesos for cab ride either north or south. We were able to take day trips, or just relax at the beautiful beach. Quiet and calm setting, with a full-service staff that is professional and extremely friendly. The staff at the... More

We enjoyed this hotel but must acknowledge its limitations. First, the good news: It's an excellent location right on the beach and a short cab ride ($5) to old town and all of the restaurants. You can also ride the local bus (about .50 per person). The hotel has just 45 rooms, so it never felt crowded and there were... More

We stayed at Lindo Mar the first week of October 2012. We have never been to this hotel before but after reading reviews here on TripAdvisor, we decided to check it out. There were many good things about this hotel but there were a few problems with really basic services that colored our experience. When we arrived, all of the... More

We stayed here from November 10 - 17/12 and were pleasantly surprised by the size of our unit. We weren't expecting anything fabulous from this quaint little place as it was clearly dated and the non-AI was a first for our family. We found our 2 bedroom suite to be absolutely lovely from the breathtaking views off our two balconies,... More

As an RCI member I was excited to finally trade into the Lindo Mar. Being in PV several times before, my husband and I had driven by this quaint hotel sitting on a cliff, with stunning panoramic views and old mexican charm. I had to go there!!! So everything was what I expected; the room, the view, etc. First night... More

We have been going back to Lindo Mar for several years now. We are owners, so may be viewed as biased. LM is 3-4 star rooms in a 5 star location and ambiance. The units (1 to 3 bedroom) are comfortable and quiet. Good air conditioning. The 48 unit building is right on the beach with a great, locally rated,... More
