President’s Report

photo of Dennis Lockwood

The leaves are falling, and it is time for us to head to Lindo Mar!

As I ponder our 25 years of ownership it is some of the best memories of our lives! We have had incredible ventures and would not trade one of them for a different location or resort.

The 2021 life has been a challenge for all of us and Lindo Mar is no exception. We have been blessed with a great staff at the resort including those that take care of all our needs. This year "safety" has been added to their daily challenges. Our guests and owners have remarked how professional the staff has been in following and exceeding all the COVID protocols. Thanks to all of our staff!

We are diligently focused on finishing the remodel of the first floor and penthouse units. The second-floor renovation is complete and has turned out beautifully.

We are so thankful for several things in addition to a great staff. We have strong financial support from the owners and restaurant. The result of all this is no increase in maintenance fee for 2022.

We are planning other improvements once the units have been completed and the restaurant is high on the list!

The Board of Directors (BOD) met on October 27th and we affirmed much of what is in this writing. We are committed to enhancing the aspects of the resort including adding new amenities and future improvements.

Officers were selected at the last meeting, and they are as follows:

  • President - Dennis Lockwood 
  • Vice President - Roger Denton
  • Treasurer- Chuck Meacham
  • Secretary- Sandra Erickson
  • Special assignment: Communications Director - Lisa DeJong

The BOD is sad to say "Good-Bye" to Roberto Chavez as he retires from his duties as General Manager of Lindo Mar. We are very thankful for his 23 years of leadership and want to acknowledge the huge changes that he has accomplished in his tenor: several remodeling phases, wall collapse, the ramp, a new elevator, staffing changes, restaurant growth, (i.e., Sunday Brunch) just to name a few. Roberto, you are an incredible man, and we wish you the best in your next endeavor!

Wishing you all a safe 2022 and see you at Lindo Mar.

Dennis Lockwood
Board President

Manager´s Article

Hello Lindo Mar Members

I take this opportunity in my last article for a newsletter to be sent to you, to share a little of my memories:

It is today November 3rd, and I am recollecting in my memory, the first time I went inside the building, back in 1998. The incredible feeling I experienced the first time I went outside the building and saw the fountain and ocean view for the first time...beautiful I thought!

I said to myself…"I live in Puerto Vallarta and I never heard of this beautiful place"? Then I started working officially in March 1998, as Manager, but I didn´t take over until June 1999, after Hector Rosas and Tom Carota left Lindo Mar.

I remember a few things that were of concern as soon as I started managing:

  • The Tv Sets in rooms were Phillips 19" very old and we were renting them from a company in Mexico City for about $11,000 pesos per month.
  • All of the room tabs for guest’s charges were made handwritten, that means that you had to write down the charge amount and add it to the previous balance in the tab account, to establish a new balance. that was the way we use to do and manage the room tabs for guests. Many of those had scratches and blots.
  • We used to buy about 40 to 50 jugs per week with purified water from a supplier in town, for all of the rooms that were being occupied.
  • We did not have safety deposit boxes in rooms.
  • Only half of rooms were equipped with air conditioning.
  • TV cable service was not efficient.
  • We had an internal music system in rooms, very deficient by the way, with monthly payment to same company that rented the TV sets to us.
  • All tours were sold out at Front Desk, no commissions were earned by Lindo Mar.
  • Restaurants, we had 2, La Playita and Los Cantaros were open for MEMBERS ONLY, of course we were not making money.
  • 2 lawsuits were in process, one from a former worker of a time share company serving Lindo Mar and another one from the former administrators and constructors Douglas and Esther Cox, there was a lawsuit from Lindo Mar against them as well.
  • 3 or 4 times we had visits from IRS in Mexico called HACIENDA, looking for ADMINISTRADORA DE TIEMPOS COMPARTIDOS LINDO MAR, for unpaid taxes of previous years.
  • We had a very short and not very good variety in the Breakfast Buffet we were offering at that time.
  • The general spa didn´t exist yet.
  • We didn´t have valet parking yet.
  • Sometimes room upgrades and/or rooms usage were allowed without charge or payment of maintenance fees.
  • We didn´t have a concierge at that time
  • Local phone calls were not charged to guests.
  • All of the fan & coils for chiller air conditioning in rooms were sunken in concrete, to be able to change a fan & coil we had to literally break the wall.
  • No air conditioning in restaurant kitchen
  • NO Wi-Fi service yet
  • NO second elevator yet.
  • In 1999 we replaced ADMINISTRADORA DE TIEMPOS COMPARTIDOS with SERVICIOS SOL NUEVO the actual corporation that handles Lindo Mar´s operations
  • In 2001 the building was purchased from Douglas & Esther Cox the original developers and the Bank Trust was extinguished.

As you can see dear members, there is a lot we have overcame all these years past, for the good of the members and staff.

At a month and a half of my retiring date, all I have to say to you is...


Roberto Chavez

Treasurer’s Report
June 2021

photo of Chuck Meacham

COVID related issues presented some serious financial challenges for Lindo Mar Board of Directors over the last 19 months. Never-the-less, we managed to remodel the second floor this year and have budgeted to remodel the first floor in 2022. Next on the list is the only remaining floor to be remodeled, floor 9, which is where our two penthouse units are located. Our maintenance/remodeling reserves are healthy so we should be able to complete our remodeling efforts for all floors by the following year.

We did replace the roof tiles above these units and replaced the old water system to improve water pressure. Members continued to faithfully pay their annual maintenance assessments and it appears that in beginning of October, actual occupancy has resumed to pre-COVID levels. October through December occupancy and restaurant patronage should help us close out 2021 on a positive note and have a surplus to add to our reserves. As you know, Lindo Mar and staff were faced with COVID challenges, but have continued to make Lindo Mar a very special place for us, my family included! We will make it through this together!

La Playita Restaurant suffered a loss in 2020 but it appears that both member and locals have returned in 2021, and the restaurant is expected to show a profit by year end. Management is to be commended for their local outreach towards generating additional visits for the restaurant and for carefully monitoring costs. Restaurant income and continued payment of resort membership fees have allowed your Board to prepare a budget for next year without a maintenance fee increase or any special assessments. There has been only one small maintenance fee increase (4%) during the last 7 years.

Another notable factor is the decrease in our delinquency rate this year. Apparently, members must appreciate the remodeling efforts which have provided added value to our investments, and the stability in maintenance fee assessments.

Welcome Ulises Alfaro, New General Manager

photo of Ulises Alfaro

Born in the north of Mexico but grown in Puerto Vallarta my heart belongs to heaven on the earth. My family and I are what locals call “pata salada” which is the term use for natives. I live right in the heart of Puerto Vallarta, walking distance from the boardwalk to assure I have a place to watch the beautiful sunsets.

I have a professional career with more than thirty years of experience in the hospitality industry, extensive hands-on managing timeshare vacation resorts in different destinations, such as Cabo San Lucas, Rocky Point, Nuevo Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, and Park City, always caring for customer satisfaction and creating memorable experiences for members were reasons motivating my professional life.

I became a TPI member when I became General Manager at Ocho Cascadas in 2016. When I found out there was an opportunity at Lindo Mar, I raised my hand to be considered as a candidate. It was a true joy to see enthusiastic staff looking after members, which made me want to be part of the Lindo Mar Family.

I had the fortune to gain the responsibility to become the General Manager and provide continuity to all projects and legacy from Mr. Roberto Chavez. I will assure you that we will bring the best to you, your family, and friends.

Looking forward to meeting you,

Ulises Alfaro


Epidemic conditions in Jalisco improved with a significant percent reduction in the rate of infections and hospitalizations, and about 90 percent in cases, remember that the pandemic is not over, authorities asked for the collaboration of citizens to maintain preventive measures.

Still required to wear facial mask, hand sanitizer, washing hands, social distance. Mass traditional posadas, Guadalupe procession, parades, and big social events are limited. Restaurants, Bars, Cafes & Casinos operate in normal hours and capacity.


After a long period of restrictions due to the pandemic, we are happy to have the opportunity to continue some of our activities effective December, such as Yoga and Spanish classes, progressively the authorities are allowing us to take normality in all areas and activities, we will be informing our owners about the activities as they are reincorporated.

Due to the health contingency and after a year of not doing it, the Art & Market Marina Vallarta organizers have confirmed that this cultural festival will be back starting this Thursday, October 28th, 2021.

In this way, every Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. during the winter season and until May 2022, the Marina Vallarta malecón will be held at the farmers market that is ideal to enjoy gastronomic delights and buy typical items made handcrafted by local artisans.

“The Art & Market Marina Vallarta keeps a very Mexican and very Vallarta style. This cultural event takes place in a sophisticated environment mixed with all the traditional of a town celebrating the beginning of a very promising high season,” says Antonio García, administrator of the Asociación de Residentes Marina Vallarta, A.C.

The Art & Market Marina Vallarta includes multiple cultural expressions of artisans, merchants, painters, artists, and young people who seek to promote what they do best with their talent and skill.

Local artisans are ready to seduce all those looking for handmade, one-of-a-kind products in Puerto Vallarta.

Every Saturday morning from autumn to spring, the Olas Altas Farmers’ Market takes place at Plaza Lázaro Cárdenas in Colonia Emiliano Zapata. It brings together an interesting bunch of local artisans who showcase all kinds of products at their stands, appealing hundreds of local and foreign visitors.

Without a doubt this is one of the most anticipated ongoing events for the season because it offers the opportunity to purchase unconventional, handmade accessories, organic food, art pieces by independent artistsm, and natural healthcare products.

A Message from The Social Media Committee

For several years now, we have been trying to encourage our owners, as well as all La Playita customers, to post positive reviews on Yelp! and Trip Advisor; we still need everyone’s help with that! Now is not the time to quit, our Social Media Campaign is working! So please, keep posting those reviews!

That’s right, due to all the improvements at La Playita, and the hard work of our staff, we are getting more and more five-star reviews! All the positive reviews move us closer to the top-rated spots on the social media platforms, in which our customers use to sort through all their dining options in Puerto Vallarta. The more five-star reviews we get, the more people see us, bringing more customers to La Playita.

Now the big news …We are working on a brand-new website exclusively for La Playita!

We are hoping to have the site up and running by January 2022. You will be able to see our menu, check our Theme Night schedule, look for specials at the restaurant, and bar. Eventually, you will be able to make reservations and order food to go right on the website as well!

The La Playita website will be linked to the Lindo Mar website, so that you can switch from one to the other seamlessly, with just one click! Thank you all for making La Playita one of Puerto Vallarta’s favorite restaurants!

Yours Truly,
your Social Media Committee

Happy Member Comments – Message in a Bottle

“The staff and facilities are great at this resort. And, unlike Nuevo Vallarta, it is not another Miami Beach high rise hotel. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone who wants the weather and scenery of Hawaii at a reasonable price. Every apartment has an unimpeded view of the Pacific Ocean because it is right on the beach”

“We had a wonderful time at the resort! It is low key, no timeshare people pressuring you (we were never approached) food is great, and drinks are strong. The room was perfect with a beautiful view…we even watched whales and dolphins from our balcony. We will be back!”

“Old world Puerto Vallarta with friendly service and quaint surroundings.  Lovely view from the patio upstairs, the beach is sandy with many shells to collect and bring home. The maids do beautiful designs with the towels, toilet paper, tissue, and paper towels every day but Sunday.   Come and enjoy!”

“This was our second visit. Our prior visit was pre-COVID. COVID protocols were excellent this time. Masks were worn by all staff, hand washing was required prior to entering the building, shoe cleansing was required prior to entering, temperatures were checked prior to entering the building, hand sanitizer was available at multiple locations, social distancing was encouraged, and masks are required. The facility arranged for guests to have the COVID tests prior to return to the USA and to Canada. The tests took place at the resort and were easy - peazy. Payment was made in pesos, prior to the tests, and directly to the lab. We appreciated this courtesy for guests! Wonderful customer service, daily housekeeping, and Concierge, Maria Elena is so helpful and kind. Love the units with views to enjoy. Well stocked units with a filtered water container. There is air conditioning and tv, but we used neither. Excellent housekeeping. Units are spacious and there are elevators in addition to stairs. Cabs are available at the entrance... Pool, jacuzzi, plus the bar, and restaurant are on site. The facility sits on a small beach on the ocean. Spectacular! Just an overall terrific place to stay with great customer service, nice units, and amazing views!”

Previous Resort News



When is check in / check out time?
Use weeks are Saturday to Saturday. Check in time at Lindo Mar is 4:00 pm. Check out time is 11:00 am.

How do we use our owner time?
There are lots of options. You can spend the time at your home resort; you can exchange your time to another resort; you can exchange your time for a different time at your home resort; or you can deposit it for use next year. Believe it or not, you can even use next year's week this year.

How do we go about using one of the options?
Everything begins with a reservation and confirmation. If you own Floating Time, you first need to make a reservation with Trading Places International. They'll send you a confirmation. If you own Fixed Time, you need to contact Trading Places International and receive a confirmation before using, exchanging, or renting your week.

What if we want to exchange for another week at Lindo Mar or at another resort?
You need to contact Trading Places International or one of the other exchange companies and deposit your reservation with them. If you are going to another Trading Places resort, you can deposit your time with them at the same time you make your reservation.

Do we have to know which resort we want to exchange into at the time we deposit?
No. But, just like making your reservation, the earlier you request a specific location, the more likely you are to get it.

What if we can't get a reservation (floating week owners) at our home resort for the time of year we want to be there?
Just make a reservation for whatever time is available and then give it to TPI or another exchange company and ask for an internal exchange. That's when you exchange one time period at your Home Resort for a different time at that same resort.

Sometimes we can't take a vacation and other times we can take more than one week. Is there anything we can do about that?
There sure is. Through TPI or other exchange company you can save this year's week and use it next year along with that year's week. Or, you can use next year's week along with this year's. Also, don't forget you can often rent additional time at the resort where you're staying. It's a great way to extend your vacation. And, sometimes you can get better flight arrangements by traveling on a different day. If you do, just rent the additional time you need.

We own Fixed Time. Do we need to make a reservation?
No, not exactly. That is, you don't need to make a reservation, but you should let Trading Places know you intend to use your week or to exchange or rent it, as you'll need a confirmation.

What if we can't use our reserved week at all? Can we carry it over to next year?
No. At least, not without giving it to an exchange company like Trading Places first. They can accrue it for you and allow you to use it within the next two years.

When does my owner week expire?
Your owner week expires at the end of each calendar year. If you cannot use your week during that year, please call a representative to discuss your options.

Can a guest use my unit?
Yes a guest can use your unit. Just give Trading Places a call and let them know the name of the guest. There is no fee for your guests to use your unit.

Can we use only part of our week?
You can't reserve just part of a week. You must reserve a full seven days for each week of use, but you may be able to exchange a three or four day portion of your reserved time depending on the exchange company's rules. Of course, the number of days you actually stay is up to you, but you will be considered to have used all of whatever you reserved or exchanged.

We heard someone mention Bonus Weeks. What are they and how do we use them?
Some buyers at Lindo Mar paid extra for the right to use an extra week in any given year. In addition to the maintenance fee on their regular week, they must pay the maintenance fee for the year in which they use the Bonus Week, as well. Bonus Weeks can be reserved up to 9 months in advance.
