La Palapa is one of the original residential buildings on the South Side area. If you appreciate original Mexican décor and styling, this is an outstanding choice. It is reminiscent of the early days of Puerto Vallarta, and most of the residents have been here many years and have stories to tell. La Palapa features an award-winning restaurant and sunset bar on the main level, with complimentary wi-fi. Enjoy the sunset from the rooftop pool, or barefoot in the complimentary lounge chairs on the beach. The location of this building is truly outstanding. Shops, restaurants, nightclubs, grocery stores, internet cafes, art galleries – everything lies at your feet. No need for a car or taxi at La Palapa!
The seven-story building has 24/7 Front Desk service and security. There is an elevator for your convenience, plus daily maid service (except Sunday and holidays). The units vary as the owners individual taste dictate. The west-facing units enjoy the oceanview and sunset, but the east-facing units have the first morning sun and many prefer it that way.
One of my favorite units, the penthouse suite, faces east and the owners enjoy their morning coffee and watch the sun rise from their full-length terrace complete with lush plantings. It features an ornate queen bed in the separate bedroom, large tiled bath, and a pull-out sofa to accommodate an extra guest. The condo features a safe, new cable TV and stereo. There is only one flight of steps up to the rooftop veranda, which has an oceanview pool, changing rooms and numerous chaise lounges to enjoy the sun, or read in the shaded palapa.
