Hotel Amapa Appoints Team Leader for 2019 Debut

August 17, 2018

Located on Calle Púlpito, between Amapas & Olas Altas in the Zona Romantica, this 55-room, adults-only hotel will boast a rooftop pool and bar that's sure to become the place to see-and-be-seen in Vallarta.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Hotel Amapa, now set to open in early 2019 in the historic Old Town of Puerto Vallarta, is pleased to announce that Alessandro Stifani has assumed the role of General Manager. With over 20 years of experience in the hotel industry, Stifani brings to the hotel a wealth of exceptional experience in the hospitality industry.

"I am excited to lead the wonderful Hotel Amapa team and proud to be a key part of developing its unique presence in Puerto Vallarta," said Stifani. "I look forward to building Hotel Amapa's place in a league of excellence within the lodging industry."

Stifani's career began in Europe where he worked for nine years across various fields within the hotel industry including communications, entertainment and public relations. During this time, his passion for the hospitality industry was solidified and he has since focused his career on guest satisfaction.

With a wealth of experience, Stifani further paved his career in the hotel industry by joining Wyndham Hotel Group where he worked in four different locations, over 10 years, assuming a diverse range of managerial roles at each.

"Alessandro brings dedication, passion, and unparalleled hospitality expertise to the Hotel Amapa team," said David Harries, Developer of Hotel Amapa. "We couldn't be more excited to unveil the hotel, which is centrally located to the best of what Puerto Vallarta has to offer, serving as a cultural hub away from the all-inclusive resorts, under the expert guidance of Alessandro."

Most recently, Stifani was at Buenaventura Hotels serving as General Manager of Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel & Romantic Getaway. His appreciation for and interest in the people and culture that embody Mexico facilitate a supreme grasp on the Hotel Amapa vision of impeccably executed minimalism and modernism. An expert on the Puerto Vallarta area, Stifani will serve as a tremendous asset to the Hotel Amapa team, setting the bar high for boutique hotels and impeccable service.


Opening in the vibrant and historic Old Town of Puerto Vallarta, Hotel Amapa embodies the fusion of traditional Mexican aesthetic with a laid back, yet spirited, vision in contemporary design bringing a new, fresh vibe to the area.

With over 35 years of hospitality experience, developer David Harries has led a pioneering team to conceptualize Hotel Amapa, which will offer 55 rooms one block from Playa Los Muertos. The hotel, proudly part of the Design Hotels™ collection, will act as a catalyst for change in the area by providing something currently unattainable - great design, an ideal location & dedicated service.

Offering a home away from home, Hotel Amapa will be a first of its kind hotel in Puerto Vallarta where guests can experience a minimal, modern and Mexican aesthetic set against the dramatic backdrop of the Sierra Madre mountains, Pacific Ocean and old town. The hotel will provide several food and beverage options highlighting local flavors with coastal Mexican cuisine as well as a rooftop pool and bar.
