About Ralph DiPalma
The owners of this property came to Puerto Vallarta for the first time in 1985. It was 'Love at First Sight.' They have travelled all over the world, but always come back to this charming town to relax and visit local friends that have been made over the years. It is truly their home away from home.
Ralph DiPalma purchased this condo in 2009
Why Ralph DiPalma chose Playas Gemelas
This is a perfect location for you to enjoy the traditional flavor of Mexico. You are in a safe local Mexican neighborhood; definitely not the touristic 'Hotel Zone.' This is where you can slow down, relax, and make new friends. Walk out onto your private terrace and the Pacific Ocean greets you. However, you are just around the corner from shopping, restaurants, and night clubs!
What makes this condo unique
You can enjoy a daily breakfast on the dining terrace of the bed and breakfast section of the condominium for a very reasonable daily additional charge. Or, if you prefer to pass on this option, it is just a short stroll down to the Olas Altas area where you have access to many great restaurants for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In fact, you are within walking distance to a wide array of shopping, dining, and entertainment. If you prefer, someone at the front desk of the property will be happy to call a taxi for you, but don't be afraid to get out and explore on your own! The employees at the front desk will be available to check all guests in and out of the unit. Any balances owed at check -in or check-out may be paid at the front desk. Please consider tipping the staff if they have done something to help make your stay more pleasant. They are more than willing to assist you if you simply ask.
