Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

The La Palapa condominiums above and connected to La Palapa, the world famous restaurant, is the perfect place to enjoy the pleasure of Puerto Vallarta's infamous Los Muertos Beach. We are located in the heart of the most beautiful and desirable area of Puerto Vallarta's 'Old Town' (Zona Romantica). The area is lined with cobblestone streets that are abundant with sidewalk and beachfront cafes along with a profuse variety of markets and artisan shops nearby.

We offer two bedrooms, both furnished with luxurious king-size beds (may be split for two single beds) complete with air conditioning and adjoining Mexican modernized bathrooms. We have a fully-equipped modernized kitchen along with a spacious dining room. Our balcony overlooks Los Muertos beach and the new pier. One can often observe dolphins and whales in the bay. Our favorite is watching the spectacular sunsets descend.

Our roof-top recreation area is equipped with rest rooms, sun deck, seating areas in shade with a beautiful private swimming pool with an amazing panoramic view of the beach, Los Arcos islands and ALL of Puerto Vallarta.

In our piece of paradise we have little need for a vehicle and rarely use a taxi. As most everything is within walking distance. If needed, you can pick up a bus to any part of Puerto Vallarta.

PLEASE NOTE: Housekeeping Service is included with your rental six days a week except Sundays and holidays. We do not charge a cleaning fee. We kindly ask that you tip the housekeeper at the end of your stay. We suggest $3 USD per day per person. Also, 24 hour security and door man. So may your time be filled with relaxing sunsets, cool drinks and sand between your toes. Cheers to your vacation!

About Deborah Hurd

We are Debbie and Marvin from Denver, Colorado. Lived in Denver most of our lives and raised two wonderful daughters. We own our own construction business. But most of all we love enjoying one another and having a good time. We first came to Puerto Vallarta in 1997 for a family vacation during Thanksgiving holiday break and feel in love with it immediately. We have traveled up and down the Mexican shores but keep returning to Vallarta. No other place has the same feel. The people are so friendly, the food and drink is so wonderful, so many things to see and do. Vallarta is truly a magical place for us.

Deborah Hurd purchased this condo in 2005

Why Deborah Hurd chose Amapas

Like most travlers who visit this beautiful place we started staying in the 'Hotel Zone'. The more we came the further south we would explore until we finally found the 'South Side'. Once we found this area we never wanted to leave it. The beach is beautiful. All the restaurants, lounges, and bars within walking distance. Just steps away from the beach and a block from our favorite watering hole we knew we found home.

20 minuets from the airport. 15 minuets from the Marina. 5 minuets to Centro/Malecon.

What makes this condo unique

We are literally steps away from the beach. Steps away from restaurants and bars. A block away from a small grocery store. An elevator ride to the rooftop pool. Two blocks from the pier. A Taxi stand is across the street. Two blocks away from the best coffee shop in town (Dee's!). Above the famous five diamond star restaurant La Palapa. The best smells of every thing they prepare find their way to your nose. Soft music from the restaurant below always puts us in a good mood.

A lovely weekend in Puerta Vallarta

  • 4 of 5

The place is small. Yet very charming. Close to the beach and minutes away from old town. I would highly recommend. If you are looking for a Ritz Carlton this is not your place. However looking for a great comfort place. This is ideal. The Kiosko across the street has nearly everything you need to stock your fridge as well.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

La Palapa 101 is a beautiful unit. It has the best view of the pier. We enjoyed our stay here. It is truly the best location in the Romantic Zone, close to everything.

On beach, in the heart of Zona Romantica!

  • 5 of 5

Landing here for 2 nights from our small fishing village was the perfect fit for us. This property put us on the beach, in the area of PV we wanted to be. Because of location we did get smells from restaurant below and some noise from lobby which did not bother us. It's a well equipped apartment and definitely will come back to it if available.

I miss the view from the deck already!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I hadn't been to PVR in a long time and this was our first time with kids. This condo was great! Plenty of room for us and our 5 and 9yo who LOVED the rooftop pool. The location is just about perfect...restaurants, shops, landmarks, etc are all easily walkable. Beach access is very easy and it's a very friendly and welcoming part of town. Hope to be back soon.

Felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need in a very clean and comfortable condo. La Palapa is one of the older buildings in the area, all private condos, and has been very well kept, and is very secure. Condo staff very nice. The condo is smack on the beach, with the soothing sound of the waves 24/7. Very easy to be so close to the beach and the pool. The roof top pool very clean, great views, and often no more than a handful of people around, if any.

I was concerned about the 1st floor and 'noise' from the beach below - and it was never an issue.

Many great restaurants are within a 5-10 minute walk, and the town Plaza also very close.

So much going on in PV now. Love shopping at the local markets, and checking out the art fairs. This trip I saw some great theatre, and took a great 3 hour art class at ArtVallarta - - both very reasonable and within a couple of blocks up the hill. Always advise a trip to the Botanical Gardens, and the Zoo.

The Condo felt like home after a few days.

Thank you Deborah for your wonderful hospitality.

La Palapa in Old Vallarta

  • 4 of 5

Condo was nicely equipped for our week long stay. We stopped at a local market for breakfast fare, as well as Corona, lime and margarita supplies. With the doors open there was a nice cooling breeze through the condo. When we were at the condo we spent our time on the patio, which is a great outdoor space. The bed was very comfortable and the shower in the master was divine!

We really did not mind the noise from the beach or restaurant, (except for the 4 a.m pans banging around.) I'm sure it would be better if we had closed the door to the patio. The roof of the restaurant is not very attractive either, but was not terrible.

All in all, we really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely consider staying there again. The staff were very friendly and the secure building gave my wife comfort. Until next time, adios!
