Great Staff, Great Location, Good Rooms!

We are a young gay couple(31&32)who love Puerto Vallarta, This hotel was the best we have stayed at, great value, great staff, the rooms are great, AC and fridge included. The staff even let us check in super early and check outsuper late, they were very accomadating. This is old style, REAL Mexico, but who wants to be in the room when you have a great city like Vallarta to explore. The hotel is practically around the corner from some of our favroite bars, clubs and restaraunts, and just a short walk to the Malecon where you can have crepes, fruit, aguas frescas, corn on the cob and also eskeetes. You have to go to Pacos Ranch, Manana, Cafe de Olla has great empanadas, Barcelona Tapas at the north end of the Malecon(boardwalk)is delicious, a great deal and very romantic. If you are there around 9, you also get to see fireworks on the bay from the pirate ship. The beach was great too, wonderfully warm water and great tanning!! We also took the half day gay cruise called Wet&Wild. it was fun, open bar and plenty of food, the staff was fun and very helpful, we got to see the entire bay and snorkeled near a small, private beach were we spent some time. I really mean private beach. it was beautiful!!! Can't wait to visit Vallarta again, and will definetly stay at the Mercurio again. This is truely a hidden jem!!!

Excellent week in PV

Great location- in the center of restaurants, very close to the beach and many bars nearby. Breakfast is filling and a great way to save some pesos. The hotel bar is a great place to relax while in the pool or just hanging out plus the prices are a bargain! [...] does a great job entertaining at the bar. Nothing bad to say- the hotel is a great value with a helpful and friendly staff. The room itself is plain but comfortable with just enough space.

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.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There are so many excellent dining choices in Vallarta, it's silly to be influenced by someone who solicits you as as customer. Go where you like.
