Consistent Performer

Have stayed at the Mercurio several times and it consistently provides a wonderful stay and a really, really great staff. Rooms are comfortable and much better than others in the area. I will continue to stay at the Mercurio during my PV trips.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you walk past the tourist zone and cross over Constitution Street you will save so much money on eating out and buying items. It is worth the 5 block walk. The meals were tasty and cheap.

Puerto Vallarta's Little Secret

I really enjoyed my stay at the Mercurio Hotel. The rooms are clean with a fridge. The bed is firmed and big with several pillows. I slept very well every night. The staff is friendly and made feel like home. Every morning I had a delicious breakfast that included a different stew every day and eggs, yogurt, fruit salad, cereal, milk, Mexican pastries, and coffee. The hotel is in the perfect location with a short distance to restaurants, gay bars and the beach. I can't wait to return again.

Centrally Located Hotel

Mercurio is a gay friendly hotel in the heart of the Romantic Zone. Its close to the beach, shopping, restaurants and bars. It is a great value for the modest price, but it is not the Ritz Carlton. The hotel is dated, but its price, location and staff make up for that.

Great place to stay

"Gay Friendly" is perhaps a little bit of an understatement--the guests at this large B&B (20-30 rooms) were exclusively gay men, during my stay. That being said, it was a very comfortable, laid-back atmosphere with no issues of noise. The included breakfast each day was clutch, while the AC, water pressure, in-room fridges, etc., all worked perfectly. The location is stellar, the staff overwhelmingly helpful and friendly, and at a great price. Kudos, Mercurio!
