I booked this resort because of the great reviews. And, we were not disappointed! The resort was beautiful and rooms had fantastic views of the pool and ocean. We stayed in a two bedroom unit and it was very comfortable for four adults. The restaurant provided good food and great service. The entire resort was well kept and very clean! Everyone on the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a very enjoyable week. Thank you, Lindo Mar!
We stayed for a week and upon arrival thought we were at the wrong place. Very "understated" upon arrival. We were sceptical until we made it into a room. We found Incredible views, clean remodeled accommodations, helpful staff, good food down next to the beach, authentic Mexican decor and reasonable food & drink prices made for a happy stay.
My wife and I Just returned from a one week stay at Lindo Mar. We loved it, and we’ll definitely be returning in the future. Lindo Mar is a small resort with a friendly staff. Unlike many of the other “mega” resorts we’ve stayed at, the beach at Lindo Mar is a very short walk from the elevators. Our one-bedroom unit was on the 8th floor and the ocean view from the balcony was amazing. I saw another review that discussed road noise issues on the higher floors, but that wasn’t a problem for us. We slept with the fan on, and were never bothered by road noise. One of the benefits of the upper floors is the amazing view. Some off the lower floors look out into palm trees. Still beautiful I’m sure, but not as nice as our view. I loved the fact that we never had a problem getting a palapa, even when we didn’t head down to the beach until after lunch. Speaking of lunch, we ate at the resort’s restaurant, La Playita, twice a day. I had planned on heading to town for a few meals, but we loved the convenience of La Playita, and the fact that it’s located on the water certainly didn’t hurt. La Playita likely has one of the best locations in Puerto Vallarta, the staff was wonderful, and the prices were amazingly reasonable. La Playita has two happy hours each day (12 and 5). The only issue I had during my stay was the hard mattress on our bed. Although there was a thin mattress topper, it didn’t solve the problem for me. Hopefully Lindo Mar upgrades their mattresses, or the mattress toppers, before my next visit. Overall, we had a wonderful vacation. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a peaceful vacation at a small resort with wonderful employees.…
Love, Love this hotel. Small, classic Mexican décor that is maintained in pristine condition. The location on the beach with fabulous views of the entire coast. Small rocky coves on the beach with palapas. Their restaurant over looking the ocean serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Killer Happy Hour from 5-6 with one of the best margaritas ever...could only drink one. You can get bar and food service under the palapas on the beach.
In April we stayed and enjoyed our stay. The accommodations were great, Sarah, the concierge was very helpful with activities and suggestions while in PV. Oscar at the front desk was pleasant and helpful. The restaurant's service was excellent, Eric was always helpful and gave us great seating. Though the food was mediocre but the drinks were great!
When you drive up to the hotel from the highway it is difficult to imagine what waits for you when you head down to the restaurant which is by the beach. There is an absolutely beautiful beach with some rock out crappings and very nice sand and crystal cear water! We went for a very nice brunch and wish we could’ve stayed for days. The food was excellent, the service was excellent, the view was marvellous, and we hope to be able to come again
The best restaurant service, we love the view is very beautiful, I recommend come here because the waiter are very friendly too, we love Puerto Vallarta, we back next year for sure....the food is excellent
Everything at Lindo Mar was wonderful. It really feels like you are in Mexico and the staff was exceptional. The food at La Playita has always been great and this time was no exception. The staff could not have been more helpful in all areas. Our room was just right for the two of us and we enjoyed the view from our balcony.
Our family of 4 enjoyed our week long stay in a 1-bedroom suite, other than a few inconveniences. Our stay at this resort was between average and very good, so we decided to round it up to very good, as it was overall better than average. I'll start with the few negatives for us. Unfortunately the street noise from our 7th floor master bedroom. We didn't ask for a change of room, but maybe we should have. I found that ear plugs and eye shade were sufficient. My partner did not think so. The hotel is also about an 80 peso taxi ride south of downtown Puerto Vallarta, and there is no grocery store within a short walk. There is an OXXO convenience store about a 5-10 minute walk away along the side of the sometimes busy road. Given it's location, we would not stay at this resort again, despite all of the many positives that I will describe below. We prefer more central locations with easy access to visit friends, shop and dine in and near Marina, Pittilal, and Zona Hoteleria. This was our 6th trip to PV. Traffic and time to commute to/from these areas from the hotel was about 20-40 minutes depending on traffic and time of day. Rooms had gas oven that was challenging to light as suites were not equipped with oven lighters. A sign in the kitchen showed these were available upon request from the front desk, The front desk never had one. Eventually we just lit a paper towel to light the oven...not the safest, but it worked. Stove top gas easily self-lit using buttons. The resort has a lot of pluses. The staff are ALL very helpful, courteous and professional. It is evident that they work hard to provide excellent service to every guest. Every unit is beautifully decorated and clean. Air conditioning and fans work very well. Our suite was supplied with a big jug of filtered/purified drinking water which was much appreciated. The fully stocked kitchen was very good. The unobstructed views of ocean, beach and rocks and palm trees are pretty. The sea is usually calm in the mornings. Hence "lindo mar" is accurate. Snorkeling is decent in front of the resort. From there we viewed many small yellow and black striped fish, as well as a foot long blue fish and white/clear fish. We also saw two small skates / rays while snorkeling in fairly shallow water. We had no problems getting a palapa and loungers on the beach. The hot tub was nice and hot! The pool while small was cozy and well heated. Pool side chairs were abundant. We always obtained at least 1 beach/pool towel per day and exchanged /returned our wet one. La Playita restaurant had beautiful views of the beach and ocean and sunsets. It also had a variety of very tasty food. Service staff there are busy and are very helpful. All of them. Live entertainment on certain nights was also very good.…
This is quite old, but beautiful, and well maintained, small resort. Large units with a beautiful deco on Mx. style. Good quality, large TV in the living room with numerous HD channels. Drinking water is supplied. Breathtaking view on the sea. Small, and lovely beach right below. Most of guests seemed to be owners, or their families. Great get together for three or even four generation families. If you look for action, and activities like in larger resorts, you won't find it here. It is very relaxing place. Very good restaurant right on the beach. On the negative side; very hard mattress giving me sleepless nights because of my backpain. I heard other guests with same complain. The other problem is the location, and walkability. The road on the front of the resort is a "wiled one". Not only cars don't stop for pedestrians in PV, but the road also has no pavement. You have to jump on or over stones to reach closest Oxxy. And that one is not well supplied. To reach a normal supermarket you have to travel to northern part of PV. You'll have to take a taxi or take two busses. I would consider returning to Lindo Mar, if it would be my second week in PV, and the first week spend in a larger resort north of downtown. I wouldn't stay in Linda Mar if it would be my only week in PV.…
