2 Bedroom, 2 Bath (sleeps 4) Ocean-view Penthouse On Playa De Los Muertos
About Allen Bell
We are two couples who decided to own a little slice of paradise, in one of the most beautiful buildings in the most charming area of Puerto Vallarta. We usually live in Los Angeles, but Puerto Vallarta is one of our homes away from home, and we are so happy to be sharing it with you.
Allen Bell purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Allen Bell chose Romantic Zone
Two of us met while staying in this building several years ago, and have waited until this penthouse unit came on the market to be able to share it with friends, family and with you. The concierge building is completely safe and secure, with 24-hour on site staff. The views are breathtaking and you are literally on the sand. Once you arrive at our unit, you do not need a car. Almost everything you could ever want including fine dining, great nightlife, beautiful beaches, charming cobblestoned streets all surround you.
What makes this Condo unique
Our building houses the famous La Palapa Restaurant; considered one of the most distinguished restaurants in all of Mexico and internationally. The food and service are amazing. The penthouse is large and welcoming, with a great living area including a large outdoor patio which is fabulous for dining out under the sun and the moon. Or for enjoying a south-of-the-border cocktail before heading out for dinner at one of the excellent restaurants in town.

Best Warm Weather Property We've Ever Stayed at!
My husband, mother, and I spent 10 nights here over Christmas and New Years - it was a perfect rental, perfectly situated, and in a fantastic city!
First the practical aspects - my mother has mobility issues so the elevator and the walk-in showers were perfect for her, plus the easy access to the beach, several nearby restaurants, and shops made her able to be a part of things.
Next, the condo is lovely, exactly as pictured. It was recently renovated so everything is stylish, new, & in great condition. The balcony affords a gorgeous view of the beach and nearby beach restaurants, as well as the magnificent sunsets. We had coffee there every morning & cocktails every evening. You can see the bay from almost all the rooms.
Another aspect we loved - the staff. The cleaning woman was super nice & did a fantastic job. We've stayed in many VRBO properties & having daily maid service is a luxury! We also really enjoyed the front desk / concierge staff who are there 24/7. They were there to answer questions, bring up new big bottled water jugs, relay any issues to maintenance (we had none), make recommendations and even just to chat about Puerto Vallarta. ALL the staff we met at La Palapa condos were so genuinely nice and interested in making sure you had a great time and had everything you needed.
Next wonderful aspect - La Palapa beach & restaurant. Wow, is all I have to say. Our first experience was renting loungers on the beach and ordering lunch to our chairs (which we thoroughly enjoyed & repeated many times). We then discovered they make the BEST margaritas we've have ever had (we loved the regular margarita w/ reposado and "skinny" ie. no mixers). The guys working the beach loungers were amazing - remembered you from day to day, adjusted your umbrella, your chair, delivered your food & margaritas quickly. I can't say enough about how wonderful they made our beach experience.
We had dinner at La Palapa on Christmas Eve at a beach table - everything we ordered was unique (ie. not boring), beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious! We also joined them for New Year's Eve dinner. It was not cheap ($200 pp), but the food was amazing, the staff super, the DJ & dance floor fun, drinks free flowing (those margaritas I mentioned). Probably the most fun NYE we've ever had.
We LOVED Puerto Vallarta. A charming, welcoming, safe, diverse & comfortable city! We will be back & we hope to stay at this FANTASTIC property.
Property is super clean and comfortable and the location could not be better. Roof top pool is surprisingly warm and a great place to meet fellow travellers or relax in peace and quiet.
Great location and enjoyed PV
Perfect location and favorite restraurant
This property was perfect. Right on the beach, perfect views of the bay. Very clean and neat. Loved this property and hope to return again.
Great place to stay!
Everything was perfect! The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was very clean. I've never stayed in this room before but I've stayed at this location many times, it is definitely one of my favorite places to stay!!
Love love love
The best unit in the best building on the best beach in PV! We will definitely be back next year.
Puerto Vallarta is a mystic city that harbors tradition in its plazas, in its streets, in its people - a city that expresses the color of its culture and natural beauty at every turn.
The Zona Romantica is especially charming...it's cobblestoned streets, friendly and intimate shops and boutiques, churches and restaurants, and of course fabulous beachfront all combine to make for a romantic and very accessible getaway.
