About Kevin

I am an original owner. I have updated our entire unit, as it is our desire to keep it fresh and comfortable for all. I've enjoyed staying at the El Dorado every year. Great location and great friends/owners in the building, and wonderful staff.

Kevin purchased this condo in 1987

Why Kevin chose Amapas

We vacationed in Puerto Vallarta in the 80's and fell in love with PV. Who doesn't dream of living on the ocean, or being someplace warm in the middle of winter!

What makes this condo unique

We've made many friends with both the residents and tourists of Puerto Vallarta. Its been our home away from home for many - many years!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Emi - If you keep the doors closed and the air conditioning running the condo will stay cool.

The property was the most conveniently located to walk everywhere we wanted day and night

  • 5 of 5

Me and my friends had a great time in PV and made great memories thanks to this great condo located in the most convenient spot on the beach. Never had to walk more than 10 minutes the whole trip to get everything we wanted, including nighlife. Blondies on the corner became our daily routine for frozen midday drinks. The condo itself was everything we wanted, needed, and expected from the description. We cooked breakfast everyday and ate on the patio overlooking the pool and beach. We loved hearing the waves crashing at night! On top of the great spot, Kevin the owner and the local staff were very accommodating and super nice! We'd definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Dear Lou, Thank you for taking time out to write such a lovely review. We are so glad that you all had such a wonderful time. We all want to have a fun & relaxing time while away on vacation. One thing that sets us apart is LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. That being said, no one wants to be stuck in just one place (think hotel). We all need to get out and explore and find our own adventure and slice of paradise. As you pointed out, our area is ideal in that everything one could possibly want is no more than 10 minutes walking (if that). The staff at the El Dorado, from the reception to Erika our maid are great to one and all. We look forward to having you all come back. Thanks again for being our guests. Kevin

Excellent condo right on the water!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 just stayed here this April (Semana Santa) and had a wonderful time. We were within walking distance of everything and loved having the beach so close! The weather was incredible and when it did get a little hot, the AC in the bedrooms worked great. The condo has everything you would need and I loved its "Mexico charm". The staff at The El Dorado was great and we never had a problem with the wifi or anything. The cleaner, Erika was wonderful as well. Sand toys were there which was a plus for my kids. Highly recommend!
