About Allen Bell & Natalie Bergman

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 & Natalie Bergman purchased this condo in 2013

Why Allen Bell & Natalie Bergman chose Puerto Vallarta

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.

One of the best places in PV!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful building, condo, beach - you name it. Everything was perfect for our stay. We rented both Units 702 and 703 for a perfect family get together for 4 couples. The views from the condos are amazing - exactly as pictured. You cannot get more oceanfront than this without being in the water! Both condos were very tastefully updated. Very nice. We will definitely try and book again. We have been coming to PV for over 25 years and you just cannot beat La Palapa for all of its wonderful features!!

Our stay at La Palapa was incredibly fun and a trip I will never forget. The condo is in a great location in old town. The convenient location allowed us to get out and experience the local culture and get for a hike in the jungle to La Eden. We were able to sit on our balcony and watch the sunset over the ocean every evening. There are several fabulous restaurants within walking distance. The La Palapa restaurant, which is located in the same building as the condo, has delectable food. We enjoyed their live entertainment there most evenings. The locals were incredibly friendly. I felt very safe. The concierge, Ricardo, did a great job giving us directions, making phone calls, helping us with our plans, calling cabs for us, etc. This condo beats any all inclusive and I cannot wait to return to La Palapa in the near future. Thank you for opening up your condo for us to have such a awesome time.

complete in every way

  • 5 of 5

Impeccable in every respect ! You just cannot beat the location, amenities, views and choice of restaurants that this condo location has to offer. The condo is very comfortable for 4 and is very well maintained. We spent many of our evenings soaking in the amazing sunsets and sipping our favourite wine/tequila. The building is very secure with the condo complex itself very clean and self sufficient. Highly recommended.

Should you stay here dont forget to visit the juice ladies half block to the right and the mercado muncipial !

Even better than the pictures!

We recently stayed in the Penthouse and this property over delivered in every way. The view is even more spectacular in person. The condo is very tastefully decorated and has every thing you will need for your stay. The building is spotless, and very secure. As an added bonus is it is located above one of the best restaurants in P.V. and is situated to have the most stunning view of the bay. This will be a "go to" for every trip. Can't recommend it highly enough.
