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 Amapas

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.

This was our third stay in this condo at La Palapa. We love the location and the view. The staff at La Palapa is also very helpful. Martha, the housekeeper for this unit, is wonderful. The condo is very comfortable and well supplied. Our only regret is that it is not available next year at the same time.

Great location and comfortable condo for our family

  • 5 of 5

Great location and perfect for our family. Close to great food, beaches and activities. Our only complaint was the noise from the restaurants and people/boats below - but it was still worth it for the location. Condo was very clean, well stocked kitchen, and very comfortable.

Loved the penthouse!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here, and were fortunate to meet Allen briefly. We would have had no complaints, but, as we told Allen, we were disappointed that the pulldown shades shown in the pictures were no longer there. As a smoker who spent lots of time on the beautiful terrace, late afternoons became a game of "hide from the sun".

The neighborhood was great. It had many choices of mini-shops and restaurants. We really enjoyed our time at Café Bohemia. Great happy hours, free soup with dinner, innovative menus and charming staff.

Loved this place.

The view is truly stunning and the stay very relaxing. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendlier. The condo was very clean and comfortable. We used the rooftop pool and lounge area everyday.
