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.

Fantastic Views and Location

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Condo not so much

  • 4 of 5

Location and the condo complex amenities are 5 stars! The condo itself 3 stars. We were a family of 13, arriving on Christmas Day. As the hostess I had contacted the owner, John well in advance to ask for a chef to prepare a Christmas dinner for us, he dropped the ball and placed our request with his management team on Dec 18th. On Dec 21st I was told a chef had been found and the cost for a simple menu would be $850.00. We went to plan B. We asked for management to do some grocery shopping and we planned to cook. We did manage to produce a very nice meal but it wasn’t without many challenges. Broken oven, no propane in the bbq, no mixing bowls, most serving dishes were under sized, no napkins, paper towels or coffee filters. Then no Tupperware to store leftovers. Next the hot water heater was turned off and not able to be turned on until the following day. We went 5 days, half our trip without an oven. Then we went to do laundry- bottom line we could only do wash with cold water. Then a leak from the upstairs bathroom into the bunk room bathtub. Many lightbulbs out, and airconditioning that could not be adjusted down on the first level. Needless to say the condo needs some attention! We found the owner and management team to be fairly unapologetic and less than responsive. I spent the first two days of my vacation stressed due to condo issues for all of my guests. Eventually all of the problems became laughable. Oh and no notebook. I couldn’t find any rules until I inquired, I was told they were in the kitchen drawer, ah- I found them buried under menus and appliance manuals. There’s more but I need to stop..

The condo complex is beautiful! The grounds are beautifully maintained. The pool and ocean are right on property. There is a swim up bar and restaurant with good food. It’s an easy walk to the marina, which has great restaurants to choose from, we enjoyed Victor’s Place. El Tortito, and Porto Bello. Super shopping and spa treatments. The airport is only 15 mins away. We loved to stay at Shangri-la again, just not this condo.

Owner's Response: We try very hard to make our guests vacations at our Penthouse very special and enjoyable. I was happy to make arrangements to have my guests picked up at the airport. I was happy to provided groceries for my guests so that when they arrive, they did not need to do a thing. I was happy to provide a chef for my guests and was sorry to hear that they thought it was too expensive. Guests tell us that the pricing is very reasonable but different people have different budgets. We provide a state of the art gourmet coffee maker that does not need filters. Condo rules are clearly posed in front of the elevators and we keep an extra copy in the kitchen. Providing tupperware for my guests seams an odd request but we will in the future. Sometimes an appliance breaks or a washer needs maintenance and we are truly sorry for the inconvenience but to be able to replace an oven in 5 days over a holiday weekend seems pretty reasonable. We have rented our Penthouse for over 5 years now and it has been a great experience. We have had many amazing guests who have raved about their experience but unfortunately this was our first negative reaction.

Amazing views of Puerta Vallarta bay!

  • 5 of 5

Every room on the 15th and 16th floors of this wonderful condo is photo worthy! The unit is spacious and perfect for a large party, like our family of 12. The bunk room was a very exciting sleepover for the four grandkids!

The location is away from the bustle of Old Town, but easily accessible via taxi or bus. The marina is down a block, across from the entrance. There you'll find many restaurants, shops, boats to look at, many iguanas and even a resident crocodile, Frank!

The grounds are perfectly maintained and filled with flowers! The four connected pools offer a variety of water activities, as they range from a few inches deep to adult swim depth. The beach is very clean and a great stroll. The staff was friendly, professional and helpful. We highly recommend this property for your family and friends.

We would be remiss if we didn't mention a few challenges. Some of the showers take a long time to get hot-don't give up! The BBQ did not work, but we did not ask for help, so it might have been correctable. We were there during Mexico's spring break, and so were entertained every night by music (a wide variety) from somewhere in the neighborhood from 9-10:30. This would not be a problem for most adults, but little kids are in bed by then. Even with these little problems, the unit is beautiful and well located-book it now!
