About Bruce Zelony
My life's motto... Nobody's perfect, if they are...run. We fell in love with this apartment because of the serene feeling we got the moment we saw it. Sometimes it's nice to be an adrenaline junkie and sometimes we just want to relax, we also like doing both in the same day. Love the nice things in life and LOVE finding the right hole in the wall for dinner. Balance is my favorite word.
Bruce Zelony purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Bruce Zelony chose Amapas
After visiting for 20 years I knew that Puerto Vallarta is special and this neighborhood makes me feel at home. It's quaint and only 2 blocks away from world class dining, across the street from the beach and high enough above the street to make the world slip away.
What makes this Condo unique
Always been attracted to Ocean Views. I visited newer, more modern buildings yet kept circling back to this unit, far above the street there's a remarkable feeling seeing the Ocean and the Mountains when you look out on a corner unit with wrap around windows.

The view is stunning. The place is clean, and private. By breathtaking, it’s a view to die for. Also, close to the beach. Returning to the condo from the Amapas entrance, there are over 79 steps. That also can be breathtaking!!😆 make sure the taxi driver goes to the upper level near the highway when you come from the airport. I highly recommend this place and the concierge service was A+
Amazing view ! Excellent amenities! Better then the pictures.The staff from Palmera’s were great!
The place is an ideal location and central to the Romantic zone and all it’s fun attractions yet just far enough removed that come evening time it’s very peaceful for a restful nights sleep.
The stairs up to the place keep you burning the calories from all the days buckets of Corona’s!!!
Thanks for a great stay and we will be back soon!!
The view is everything
Every morning and evening was spent lingering on the balcony, staring out at the beauty of Banderas Bay. The pictures don't lie--they are stunning. Property was comfortable and had whatever we needed. There really are a lot of stairs, so be warned. We didn't find this a problem, but some people might. The concierge that helps with the property was extremely helpful, providing tips on eating and tours. Great location right in the Zona Romantica, close to the beach and lots of restaurants that are a bit off the beaten path. Wonderful stay.
Lovely condo in perfect location
The view from this penthouse condo is fantastic, we could watch P.V. bird activity every morning even had humming-birds, posing for us!
The location at the end of Zona Romantica is superb, party noise usually subsided by 10 pm.
One block from ocean is great for swimming and afterwards simply walking back upstairs to take a shower.
There is a mini supermarket 3 min and a French bakery about a 6 min walk from condo for daily delicious breakfast
Layout of condo is beautiful and rooms are beautifully appointed
Customer service was excellent. All staff was most helpful and provided us with a new
jug of purified water, as the one that was in the condo was empty.
They also booked a tour for us and called a taxi the day of departure.
The kitchen is equipped with everything one would need to entertain guests with all appliances performing perfectly.
Internet was fantastic at all times.
The area is safe, even at night. Possibly due to tourist police presence - we never had any issues.
What a beautiful space. I booked expecting a lot and when the taxi pulled up in a somewhat dingy looking area I was worried. But then I went through the lobby and out onto the roof and WOW !!! The view is amazing, the common areas are very clean and well taken care of and the condo is great. Warm and welcoming, comfortable and classy, they have done a great job furnishing it.
The kitchen is a part of the space so you can visit with guests while cooking. There was some basic equipment missing, but my husband says the knives are the best he has ever seen in a condo, so he was willing to forgive the lack of champagne/wine glasses, storage bowls and a couple other things. We purchased the glasses and I let Bruce know about the rest so I think it will be fixed pretty quick.
The condo is in a great part of town. Off the really touristy row, but only 10 minute walk to it. Close to the beach, theatres, banking, restaurants, we loved it. No large grocery store but we took a taxi out to one and stocked up on essentials, the day to day is available everywhere.
Couple of reservations about recommending this space. First - from the beach it is 112 stairs (yes I counted them) to the apartment. A lot of stairs, but great for the butt. If you hike or take a taxi to the top it is only one flight up or down.
The other reservation, although we didn't care, is it is in a very obviously gay part of town. So if you have a problem with that, this would not be the place to rent. But boy would you be missing out on a great place and a great area.
Are we in heaven ??
As soon as the door opens to the condo you are welcomed by an amazing view of the most beautiful ocean view in P V..
The condo is just as the pictures describe , even better actually. It is very comfortable and has all you will need to make it a great holiday. Clean, well supplied, roomy enough for two very nicely, everything worked perfectly, the bedroom a/c was great and the bed was very comfortable.
There are a LOT of stairs but if your in decent shape and don't mind some excercise it's quite enjoyable.
Luis the concierge was very accommodating and met us upon arrival and departure and was available the few times we needed his assistance.
Thank you Bruce for sharing your spectacular place in heaven, we will be back !!

Located in the aptly named Zona Romantica (Romantic Zone) eclectic, bohemian and home to galleries, restaurants, nightlife and a thriving gay community, the adventurous and the open minded will have plenty to do, see, taste and enjoy. 1 block from the Blue Chairs beach resort, travel on cobblestone streets as you explore the quaint village. Sip coffee down the street for hours or lay by the pool. Adventurous types can enjoy paragliding, banana boats or jet skiing. If action is not your scene, perhaps you'll enjoy watching it from the balcony. For your adrenaline rush, try one of several zip lining companies, swim with the dolphins or visit Chicos Paradise, a restaurant in the middle of the jungle. Take an evening cruise aboard the Pirates of the Bay, a family friendly event complete with fireworks or enjoy one of several cocktail cruises on the bay that cater to different lifestyles. There are a number of excellent beach front dining choices to fit everybody's budget, from Dollar Margaritas to Luxurious Private dining by the ocean. Perhaps a private chef is what you want to create a memorable evening? No matter what your taste and budget, Old Puerto Vallarta has something for you. Our professional concierge service can make recommendations, reservations for dinners and activities. Disfrtutate! (ENJOY YOURSELF)
