Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms - 2 King + 1 Queen + Full Sofa / 3 Full Baths + Half Bath - SLEEPS 8

Hi:) A quick note to everyone.. We have noticed positing’s that state “Downtown Puerto Vallarta” and yet you still need a car or a taxi to get to downtown. We are 100% DOWNTOWN and DIRECTLY on the BEACH so you can walk to everything - NO car/taxi needed, just an FYI.

Completed in 2009 This Truly unique and 1 of a kind TWO STORY Duplex Ocean Front PENTHOUSE features three MASTER bedrooms & 3 and 1 half Baths + 3 AMAZING BALCONIES with Ocean and Mountain VIEWS from the roof top decks.

Located on Camarones Beach in downtown Puerto Vallarta and just steps away from the Malecon sits Puerta al Mar. This boutique beach front Mexican style building has traditional Mexican finishes. Puerta al Mar also offers elevator service, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, outdoor bar, direct beach access, covered parking with attendant and 24 hour security.

Located in downtown Puerto Vallarta, also known as 'Viejo Vallarta,' which is the site of the original fishing village that turned into a world-renowned tourist destination. With cobblestone streets, a pretty town square, and Puerto Vallarta's most famous landmark, the Cathedral Our Lady of Guadalupe, 'El Centro' has a unique charm and character of its own. A mile-long boardwalk known as the 'Malecon' runs along the downtown oceanfront street, Paseo Diaz Ordas, where you will find shops, restaurants, galleries, specialty stores and traditional marketplaces facing the ocean.

Paradise may be considered a state of mind, but when visiting Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, one definitely experiences a real life paradise.

Marina Vallarta Golf Club Located in Marina Vallarta, 3.6 miles, since most of the fairways are lined with palm trees and guarded by water, a premium is placed on accuracy.

Flamingos Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this traditional-style course enjoys the reputation of being the easiest to play because of its wide-open fairways.

Punta Mita Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Located 40 minutes to the north, there are two 18-hole courses. Pacífico eight picturesque holes bordering the ocean. Hole #3b, called the “Tail of the Whale,” is a 194-yard, par 3 that plays across the ocean to a rocky island green. Bahía has seven oceanfront holes and is a little more challenging than

Mayan Palace Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this is a fun course, though bunkers and water hazards are everywhere. The #14 signature hole is a beautiful 166-yard, par 3 with the ocean on the left and a lake on the right.

El Tigre Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this is a lengthy course protected by traps and water throughout. The mammoth finishing hole is the par 5, 621-yard “Tiger.” Most golfers find it untameable because water runs all the way down the left side and the multi-tiered green is surrounded by sand.

Vista Vallarta This is actually two spectacular golf courses at one location, 5.2 miles, just 10 minutes east of the airport. The Nicklaus course has garnered worldwide recognition since hosting the 2002 EMC World Cup Championship.

Probably the best location in PV.

  • 4 of 5

Great location. You do not need a car when staying here. Very friendly staff and security. You feel very safe walking to downtown

Just a little noisy at nights since there are clubs all around the vicinity

I would recommend this place to anyone with a big group.

The place is laid out very well and looks good!

Absoluely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My wife and have been to Puerto Vallarta many times. We have stayed in all inclusive hotels in the hotel zone, condos away from town, and other condos in town. This condo is BY FAR THE BEST OF THE BEST.

From the Owner to Bernice a the front desk to the cleaning lady to the night door man to the maintenance man, they are all wonderful people. This is the best staff you could ever ask for while on vacation.

This is the second time we have stayed here. We have stayed in the 2 bedroom on the third floor and the 3 bedroom penthouse on the 4th floor. Both units are equally gorgeous. The pictures of the units are very accurate, but in person with the view and the sound of the ocean right in front of you, the place is even more beautiful.

It is absolutely true that you do not need a car or even a taxi to do anything you want while staying there. Everything is walking distance. Tons of fantastic restaurants, clubs, awesome street food, beautiful "boardwalk", and even the grocery store is just one block away.

My wife and I will for sure be back.

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in the condo. It is so close to shopping and the Malecon. Being on the beach, the sound of the waves was awesome. The condo itself had everything we needed and was well decorated. The staff were so nice and helpful. I would recommend this place very highly.

Great condo! Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The penthouse condo unit was everything we expected and more. The property was right on the beach with easy access to downtown, restaurants and shopping. The staff was helpful and very nice. They helped book excursions and made great restaurant recommendations.

The only drawback was that the elevator was not working during our stay and, at times, having to use the stairs to get to the penthouse was an effort.

We highly recommend and will be back on our next trip to PV!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your nice review. I want to apologize for the inconvenience caused by the non-working elevator during your stay. Due to a power surge caused by a storm, the mother board was fried and we needed to replace it. Unfortunately, to get spare parts in Mexico is quite challenging, Otis did not have one available and, we had to get it from overseas. That caused an unavoidable lengthy delay. We understand that our staff was helpful carrying luggage and packages.This is the first time that we had such a problem with our elevator since we finish our building in 2009.
