Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
The views from this luxurious penthouse are unrivaled. The wrap-around terrace provides an unobstructed 180 degree view. From the verdant mountainside to the gently lapping waves you will think you have died and gone to heaven. You are in a perfect location.
Unless you plan to stay for a month, (please consider it), you will be unable to sample all of the fabulous restaurants. The gourmet restaurant, La Palapa, located on the ground floor, is the oldest and best restaurant on the beach. You are, indeed, in a paradise...both tropical as well as epicurean.
Spend the day sitting on your terrace watching all the action on the beach, or sit by the large rooftop pool, sipping a cool drink. Want more daytime action? Head for the Municipal mercado, or the wonderful shops along Basilio Badillo. Perhaps you might want to take the water taxi to Yelapa!
Without doubt, La Palapa is the best condo building on the beach. There is maid service 6 days a week, (excluding Mexican holidays), as well as 24/7 security.
This property is individually owned and managed.

The view is breathtaking from the condo
The view from the wrap around terrace was incredible. The unit is a perfect location in old town and excellent if you enjoy the beach. The building is very safe and secure and quite peaceful. I have stayed at La Palapa in a different unit and I love this building. The condo was very clean and attractive and up to date. I plan on visiting Puerto Vallarta again in the future. I would happily stay there again.
Thanks, Jon. So glad you liked the penthouse. We look forward to your return visit!
It's all about that balcony and the view
What the photos (and other reviews) don't express is that the balcony 'blends' into the ocean like an infinity pool ... completely seamless! I specifically chose this property for the length of the wraparound balcony, hammock, and location on the highest floor in the building.
Nicely furnished and decorated, some of the owner's art work is exceptional. But the terms 'luxury' and 'luxurious' in the listing are misleading.
The kitchen in particular was disappointing. It's not 'fully furnished' so don't plan on doing any cooking or entertaining. No platters and serving bowls for appetizers, no large bowl on the counter for all the lovely fruit and veg one brings home from the Mercado, and the promised 'basic' pantry items were just salt, pepper and splenda. The inline filter for the kitchen sink is an advantage, so no bottled water is needed.
It's very obvious that this condo is owner-occupied; about 90% of the cupboards and closets have owner locks on them and so are unavailable for guest use. The master bedroom has one wardrobe and no drawers. Ironically, the guest room has much more closet and shelf space available.
A few simple things could be provided to make the guest stay more enjoyable; pens and notepad by the phone? Vase(s) for flowers? Umbrella?
Bottom line, it's a very nice condo. But I would have been more satisfied with it had my expectations not been so highly set by the listing language.
I am sorry that you overlooked the credenza in the living room. It contains platters, serving bowls, dishes for serving appetizers, etc.
the armoire in the master bedroom has 2 shelves as well as 2 deep drawers for guest use.
Thank you for your review.
Great location, unparalleled views -I call it La Vista Magnifica
We had a terrific time during our week at La Palapa. The owner provided a lot of information about the property before we arrived. She answered a number of emails and provided great advice about Puerto Vallarta, including things to do as well as restaurant ideas.
It is a small condo building, maybe forty units with a superb roof top pool. The staff at the front entrance was attentive to our needs.
Our condo was beautifully decorated and had folding glass doors across either side of the living room offering the option beautiful open air living whenever we wanted it. It was scrupulously clean.
It is a bustling neighborhood right there on the beach, but it became quiet after 11. We would fall asleep to the ocean waves which sounded as if they were in our room.
Although we ate out most of the time, on several occasions we brought back food to eat on the balcony, enjoying our own "view restaurant."
We look forward to our return.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Look forward to seeing you next year!
My husband and I stayed for the month of January 2014 and absolutely loved it. It's so private, clean and well maintained and the owner a delight to work with. The location to shopping and restaurants is excellent. We have asked to return again in 2015 and can't say enough good things about the condo and location.
Great find in Puerto Vallarta
We've been coming to PV for more than 25 years and this was the best trip ever! The condo is beautiful and in a perfect location on Los Muertos beach. You can walk right into La Palapa restaurant (and we did). We also walked to all of our favorite restaurants and along the malecon every night. The wraparound terrace is outstanding, offers the most spectacular view of the bay and affords both morning and afternoon full sun.
The master bedroom and bath are very comfortable. The housekeeping services were a great plus, with daily service. The only shortcoming was too little storage space (drawers) in the second bedroom/bath.
I would love to come here again!
I have stayed at numerous units in La Palapa over the last twelve years and this is the finest one I have seen. Beautifully re-modeled and decorated with unbeatable city and ocean views. Being the penthouse, the ceilings are extra high, giving it a palatial feeling. I very much enjoyed my stay and would stay in this unit again.
Thanks, Joe. I'm glad you enjoyed the condo and love it as much as I do. Looking forward to having you back next year.
