Friendly hotel!

Great stay at Mercurio! The staff is wonderful and very attentive. The rooms are a little dated but fine if you're barely spending time in them. Overall it was a good stay!

Sweet spot

I love Mercurio's lobby, pool, breakfast, happy hour, guests and staff. The rooms are spartan but clean, sorta like dorm rooms. They are also inconsistent - one stay I got a large second floor room facing the street full of sunlight, another time I got a small dark first floor room facing the pool. You can expect a fun friendly stay, just don't count on luxe bedrooms.

A short walk away is Basilio Badillo, a street lined with great restaurants.

Excellent staff but hotel itself needs a makeover

The staff at this hotel is absolutely wonderful but the hotel truly needs a makeover. Sorry to say but the bathrooms were extremely outdated. If a nice bathroom is a requirement then you might want to consider other places.

Upgrades needed

While not the worst place in the world, I doubt many LGBT travelers would find these accomodations desireable. The staff were friendly enough, but overall, from the beds to the decor an upgrade is needed. We fondly referred to the bed as the "Flintstone bed" as it was like sleeping on a rock. Chiropractor, here we come!

Hotel Mercurio - PV

As noted above... the staff is great, the location perfect for gay men... the rooms are spartan and the place could use a coat of paint.... but breakfast is included and the value pretty good... if you want luxury look elsewhere... bit for convenience this is the place... also, the guests tend to be very friendly and overall this is a great place to stay..
