If you are interested in the feel of Mexico, this is the hotel to go to. There is no bling at this hotel, it is true Mexican decor. Yes, it is feeling it's age, with cracked tiles here and there, but only adding to the feel. The hotel has recently been upgrading beds, and TVs, and have full kitchens. Lindo Mar is kept very clean, and I have found staff very friendly. Maria the concierge is a doll, she will go out of her way to assist you in anything. This hotel is small and quaint. It is right on the beach, with each suite facing the ocean. The higher floors have spectacular views, middle floors you look through a few palms, and the bottom floor you won't have the views. The restaurant is one of the best in PV, which is right on the ocean, which gives you wonderful sunsets during your evening. If you want big shiny modern hotel, don't go to Lindo Mar. If you want small quaint Mexican, this is the place for you.

We are so glad you like Lindo Mar. As you pointed out, the "tired" look is being addressed. But, have no worries, the ambiance will be retained even after any upgrades. Thank you for taking the time to compliment us.

Lindo Mar is one of those places that you want to return to, time and time again. I know, I've been coming there for over twenty years. The staff is like family and the property, while older, is well maintained and kept clean.

The on site restaurant serves excellent food and the Sunday Brunch is frequented by many locals. The property is not all inclusive, so you are free to sample the many wonderful eating choices that Puerto Vallarta has to offer.

Relaxing by the pool, watching the sunset from the hot tub or from the balcony of any of the rooms, (all have ocean view,) are but two of the many ways to enjoy this quiet restful place.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean, try to get between the fourth to sixth floor for the best views and quiete...

This resort talks about the great ocean view rooms. because of the ugly palm trees, there is no view from over half the rooms! plus there is no relief from the sun at he pool deck. beware! because the review has to be long i can go on about the restaurant, excellent food and it has a view! the resort itself is run down, shows it's age.

Room Tip: don't bother view is bad on most floors

Thank you for your positive comments about the restaurant at Lindo Mar; we hope you’ll eat with us again soon. As for the views, we are sorry your room was behind one of the few palm trees that actually are part of the view. When you return to Lindo Mar, be sure to ask for one of the many rooms that are higher up.

Our first time in Puerto Vallarta but it won't be the last time. We found our deal online for a two bedroom two bath condo. Our room was on the fourth floor with an ocean balcony in the master bedroom as well as the living. The room was very spacious and clean.

The resort has a restaurant only a few steps from the ocean. The food was flavorful and the prices were very reasonable. We tried the restaurant next door at the recommendation of one of the guest service employee but it was expensive compared to the Lindo Mar's restaurant. The restaurant employees were very friendly and they even came around the cabanas during lunch time.

We had everything we needed at the resort and didn't feel the need to go off the property for anything else. We had the relaxing 7 days and 7 days at the Lindo Mar. Each there consisted of enjoying breakfast at the restaurant, laying out on the beach, have lunch brought to us, wrap up the day watching the sun set and relaxing in our spacious condo.

Room Tip: All the rooms have an ocean view but the higher floors starting with the 4th floor have better views

I have been coming to Lindo Mar for years & wouldn't trade my week there for a week any place else in Puerto Vallarta. It has a true Mexican feel in all areas. The rooms are wonderful & I love going to sleep to the sound of the waves on the rocks. The restaurant is wonderful for those meals "at home" & the prices are great. Don't see what you want-ask them & they will accomodate your wishes if at all possible. The short bus drive to Old PV is delightful & so cheap. Taxis are affordable but most drivers don't speak English. The staff is beyond wonderful....
Looking forward to my stay to begin this next Sat-wahoo!!!

Room Tip: Avoid 1st floor as the view isn't as great but you can just walk out to the pool...
