You will be in for a real treat when you first walk into our 'Penthouse' Condo. It is on the 6th floor of an 8 story building, but due to the end units not having anything above the large patio and the exclusiveness of the oversized patio/balcony we call it the 'Penthouse'. The patio/balcony is one of a select few that is very oversized at around +/- 1,000 square feet. It is also on the most desirable side of resort, and building as you will have views of El Centro or Downtown PV (and all of the Bay of Banderas from the balcony) as well as the pool etc. out of every window! This Resort is now unique among the new modern resorts and Condo's that have been built in recent years. It has the feel of a more original style Mexican Resort with lush tropical vegetation as well as Peacock's, Iguana's and many types of Birds stopping by. You will not feel like you're in Miami here....if you want that all modern look go to Miami!
The Condo Unit has had a recent Kitchen remodel, The A/C system was completely replaced in 2015, Also the Mexican Decor and decorations redone recently.
Velas Vallarta participates and assists the Giant Turtle Sanctuary in protecting and assisting the baby turtles, during the hatching season, at 8-8:30 every night that they have them, (I have seen between 4-250 at a time) you and or your children can go down to the beach and security will let you have a baby giant turtle to release into the ocean! A once in a life time experience that will be one of the most memorable from your trip!

an amazing stay and Steve is just wonderful to deal with
Loved this place - it is beautiful- the view from balcony is a dream. Steve is so wonderful to deal with and attends to anything you need. Highly recommend.
Sandra, thanks so much for being a great guest! Looking forward to having you back next year!
Great view, but........
We love the Velas Vallarta! Have been vacationing there for many years and intend to continue as long as we can. The staff at this hotel are amazing!
This is not a penthouse. It is on the 6th floor of an 8 story building. Penthouses are top floor units! We rented this unit, sight unseen, from the pictures posted on the VRBO site. We would never have rented it if we had actually seen the unit. The kitchen and bathrooms are extremely outdated. The marble floors have some awful chips. The closets are dirty and full of junk. Some of the dresser drawers were falling apart, we had to fix them in order to use them. The safe is not usable and a new one is sitting in a box on the floor......the bedding is terrible and dirty.....upholstery on the couches and chairs are stained and dirty...curtains need to be cleaned.....I could go on.....
This whole unit needs a total update and cleaning. Other than the view, it is not worth the price!
Amazing view, great property
This was a perfect choice for our family. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. Amazing patio for entertaining. The property was in a great location, and the resort had some good activities when we just wanted to stay on the property. The owner’s were helpful and very prompt with answering questions. Would definitely come back!
Lovely 3 bedroom/2 bath condo, nicely furnished, & right on the ocean.
Hotel is beautifully landscaped, with all amenities. Staff is attentive, & the food is good.
Beautiful penthouse at a fabulous resort
We have stayed at the Velas Vallarta many, many times over the past 20 years and have always booked directly through the resort as all inclusive...eating at their restaurants and enjoying drinks and food by the pool plus enjoying restaurants at the Marina and downtown. This was our first time booking independent of the resort and without all inclusive; we did not miss it at all! We BBQ'd on the balcony, cooked in the kitchen and had everything we needed. The accommodations are exactly as shown in the photos, the balcony allows you to experience sunrise and sunset but also escape the heat from the sun while enjoying both. During our stay we had up front seats from the balcony to multiple firework displays from a business conference party on the beach and a couple weddings. One of our guest's enjoyed the 3rd bedroom that has no windows...she stated that she doesn't take naps but that all changed on the 2nd day! Her room was so quiet and dark and she was napping in no time at all! We have always had first class service from the Velas Vallarta staff and this vacation was no different. We will definitly contact Steve again when we are ready for our next get-a-way!
Ocean front / ocean views
Being a rental owner ourselves , Steve was our contact person , transaction was a expected , when we arrive ,there were maintance men working on the unit and the one next door nothing bad . This unit is located on the sixth floor of a 8 story building penthouse would be exaggerating a little bit . The unit is on the end with a lanai ,useable really early in morning or after the sun goes down ,great ocean and sunset views otherwise way to hot , flip flops required , there is a grill out side , table 4 chairs and 4 lounge chairs , The inside of the unit we have to give it a b minus , everything is a little too outdated. Some ceiling fans were working some not , One sqeeky. A C air handler in the main room needs a new fan. Motor really loud . Needs to be attended too,bearing going bad . Two single beds in back room , one queen in other back room , king in the master. Recommend to replace all your bedding poor shape , chairs and blankets had stains ,Kitchen is average condo a little miss match appliances . Floor tiles were chip . The owners have a list of things to do and visit , restaurant reviews the book last updated 2006 it goes with the whole condo needs a up date . The owners have random stuff in all the closet some are completely full , recommend having one single storage For your owners closet. Iron board had no cover on it we did buy one and a iron we found at a later date just so much junk in all the closets. The resort itself is for a family attomsphere , staff friendly and nice , grounds maintained . If you are going to puerto Vallarta with your family I would recommend it , great views just needs a little money sunk into it . Uber rides into town are about 140 pesos.
