Would recommend Mon, Dec 21, 2015
I have stayed here before, and the staff is the best thing about it. Gabriel, the manager , and everyone else does everything they can to make you feel welcome and part of a family. They are working on room renovations, and I got one of the re-done rooms, which was very nice. They have a new addition- a chef hired exclusively for breakfast, who does some very good work. The breakfast is one of the best things about the Mercurio, since you get to socialize with other guests.The location is perfect- right in the heart of the gay neighborhood. And I would be remiss if I did not mention Jorge, who runs the bar- a very sweet guy who runs a very friendly bar.

Awesome hotel & Staff

Would recommend Sun, Nov 29, 2015
I've stayed at this hotel for the fourth time (years) for vacation due to it's excellent staff help and the walking distance proximity to the beach and everything else in town. It's a block away from the beach and they loan you a beach towel each day. They have cooked to your order breakfast every morning btwn 8-11 included in your stay! (not continental...!) The staff speak English and go out of their way to help your stay comfortable. Gabriel is the staff manager and the best. They have approx. 20 rooms, with a pool, and lounge area. Every so often they throw a party by the pool and there is a full bar with happy hour every day around 5pm. The rooms are nice size, and you have to remember this is Mexico where they do with what they have. The walls are not exactly sound proof, but people do respect quiet time. The bathroom has a sink that the cold water is on the left side... found out one day why the water kept runny hot, wrong side... haha The bed was nice and firm. The AC ran very cool with the help of a fan. They also have a key lock safe in every room for your valuables! This is excellent economical hotel for those who just sleep, shower and go. Nothing elaborate for the price, it is great! This hotel is a great place to meet new friends and get info on the area cause they've stayed here many times or years. You have other hotels, restaurants, bars, and stores all in walking distance. Everyone is so friendly in this old town known as the Romantic Zone (Zona Romantica) makes it a fun place to vacation and almost don't want to leave... or come back more often and stay longer next time.

Great Gay Trip

Would recommend Sat, Oct 17, 2015
We were looking for a great location in the Zona Romantica to be close to gay activities, beach, shops and restaurants. This was our trip to Vallarta. The location of Mercurio is excellent, a block from the beach, couple of blocks to the gay beach and the Malecon. The hotel is pretty basic--we expected that from other reviews and the reasonable room rate. We could not have been more pleased, the A/C worked great, good Wifi and the Staff were GREAT! From the front desk to the young man making our breakfast we were very pleased. We are going back next year and will stay there again!

Great budget hotel choice

Would recommend Tue, Jan 20, 2015
If you're looking for a ton of in-room amenities and 5-star comfort, Hotel Mercurio is not the place for you. But if you're budget minded, appreciate a great staff, and can make do without some creature comforts, this is THE place for the LGBT traveler in PV. The staff is amazing (especially Jorge), the Happy Hours are cheap, with great pours and inviting company, and the "Beer, Burgers, and Boys" special happy hour (Sundays only) are a fantastic time. The location is phenomenal, positioned at the center of PV's "gayborhood", less than a block from the beach, and less than a 10 minute walk to some of PV's most popular gay beaches and nightlife. I've booked here again for PV Pride in May, and can't wait to come back.

Secret is out

Would recommend Fri, Jan 16, 2015
I love Mercurio and had planned to stay again, sadly the secret is out about this awesome hotel and it books up fast. Rooms are simple but very clean. The staff and location can't be beat. Fresh breakfast included helps make this place the best deal in town.

Had a great overall experience

Would recommend Mon, Jan 12, 2015
The location is absolutely fantastic, only one short block to the pier, beach, restaurants, entertainment, ATMS, a great mix of tourist shops (jewelry, souvenirs, Pharmacia, beachwear, etc.) and only three blocks to the famous Blue Chairs section of the beach and even more restaurants, shops and entertainment. I walked the Malecon (beach walk) every day in the morning and afternoon, to see the shops, beach, and street entertainers. The hotel staff told me I was safe walking all around the hotel, and I never felt otherwise. The staff was super friendly, and the hotel owner solved a travel problem for me. Staff otherwise was chatty, welcoming, and good sources of advice. I had a basic room which was plenty for one or two people, with a refrigerator, safe, king sized bed, largish shower, and plenty of hot water. Décor was old fashioned but clean and sufficient. There was free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, but stronger is the common areas. The included breakfast was open air at the small bar, which included plenty of basics such as Mexican pastries, scrambled eggs with ham, refried beans, and at least one cooked meat dish. The bar was open until 10:30 pm daily. The front desk seem to be staffed 24 hours. The guests were all friendly, both at breakfast and the daily happy hour. Some of the happy hours were themed, with serving guys in swim suits or all you can eat hamburgers for a very small fee. Non-resident visitors who regularly come to Puerto Vallarta also came to the happy hours. The hotel was actually quite quiet onsite, although there certainly were street noises, including music and laughter from nearby restaurants. The onsite courtyard was very nice, albeit small surrounding a very small pool. Above all, the hotel was safe, safe, safe! This was my first trip to Puerto Vallarta and I didn't know what I was coming too. This is a proper hotel with no onsite shenanigans in the public space (there is plenty of that nearby if that’s what you want), although guests of residents were welcome if they showed ID at the front desk (for the protection of the residents). This is an adult only, gay hotel, but this definitely was a hotel, and not a bath house. The guests were a mix of singles, couples and small groups of friends. Overall I would stay there again and highly recommend Hotel Mercurio to friends.

Simple but effective!

Would recommend Mon, Dec 22, 2014
Overall I had a great stay at this hotel! The heated pool was an unexpected pleasure, and was definitely taken advantage of for some night swimming! The staff were phenomenal, especially Jorge, the pool bar's tender. He's friend, hilarious, and completely attentive to his guests. It's within walking distance from EVERYTHING. Whatever you want to do that day, you can be there in less than 10 minutes be it the beach, an Asian fusion restaurant, a bar, a fancy nightclub, whatever! However there were some minor inconveniences: I had to ask for the hot water to be turned on to my room, and fan required looking at because it seemed to be coming loose from the ceiling box. The room was a little small for my tastes, but the shower was large and nicely tiled. The A/C and fan kept the room cool, comfortable, and fresh. I'd recommend this location to anyone that wants great value and a fun atmosphere for their gaycation in PV.

Dining

Archie's Wok, amazing asian cuisine is less than a block from the hotel, headed straight towards the sailboat pier.
