Condo, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-16)
About John Panichello
I don't always travel but when I do, I prefer Puerto Vallarta. Stay warm my friends.
John Panichello purchased this Condo in 2006
Why John Panichello chose Marina Vallarta
I have stayed many places in Puerto Vallarta but Shangrila is the best by far. Its easy walking distance to the Marina, close to the airport but far enough away to enjoy the view of planes taking off without hearing the noise of the planes. The restaurants in the marina are excellent!!! For excitement, its a 20 minute cab ride to downtown.

Amazing condo and stay in PV
Fantastic property for a group of family friends! We had 3 families each with 3 kids that fit very comfortably in the penthouse. The bunk room was perfect for our 6 girls! Every day at the Shangri-la was a perfect treat! For many in our group it was their first time to Mexico and they were blown away by this 5-star property. We would absolutely recommend this penthouse and can't wait for our next stay!
Perfect location for a family reunion
The penthouse suite gave us a gorgeous view of the ocean, marina, and low mountains in the background. We had access to a huge pool, hot tubs, and the beach. Old Town Puerto Vallarta was not far away by taxi. The marina with all its restaurants and shops was in walking distance.
The condo was well stocked and spacious. Four bedrooms could sleep couples. Another bedroom, equipped with multiple bunk beds, is ideal for young people. The kitchen is spacious, well equipped, and opens onto a patio with large picnic table. We used the large gas grill twice for outdoor cooking. For cool evenings the large table in the dining room worked well. A large pantry off the kitchen contained stores of items left from previous tenants. We also appreciated the dishwasher and washer/dryer.
We found the owner very responsive to our questions and requests by texting him. Several items needed maintenance. We did not know how to reach the realty company (the number provided did not work for us), but John responded immediately to our requests which did get action.
We would have appreciated an informational sheet with details on the condo and also on how to access the events at the resort (such as water aerobics, massage). We discovered by chance that the condo apparently has air-conditioning although we did not need it.
This condo is beautiful and perfect for large groups. We recommend it unconditionally.
Fun had by all
Went to PVR with 4 High School Classmates (class of 78) and spouses. The condo, location, Shangri-La, and Owner all get an "A" (BTW a lot better than our grades in High School).
We did have an unfortunate situation but John made it all good. Thanks John!
Fantastic Views and Location
Rented for a family vacation in early April for a week. Had been to Puerto Vallarta before on cruise ships and Condos at south end of city. This by far was the best. We had 12 people and had plenty of room. Unit is beautiful and complex is great. Pools beautiful. Beach if you want that. Unbelievable views from 15th and 16th floor of unit. Marina is within a short walk. Lots of restaurants. Town is a short taxi ride. Owner John was fantastic with details and answering all our questions. Unit was stocked with a groceries, water etc. that we requested for a small service fee. Saved us a trip shopping. Are already planning a trip for next year for friends and family that were unable to go this year.
March rental for 10-days for MEXORC sailboat race week
The Condo, its complex, views and location was beautiful with convenient access to the harbor and marina. There were several nuisance issues that required attention, but the owner jumped on them as the were identified to him. The owner was very helpful in recommending amazing Chef with freshly prepared meals daily. Hard to imagine a better situation of food and location..
Highly recommended and I would like to return again soon.
Takes your breath away
This is the second time we have stayed in this unit and it is nearly impossible to describe the view and all it has to offer. Pure beauty. You see all of Puerto Vallarta - right from your spacious balcony. The owner is great to work with. The concierge for this building is wonderful and helps with everything and anything - from securing a cab to securing a chef to come in and cook dinner for us! This penthouse is the perfect place to spend your PVR vacation. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and all the comforts you would expect.
