A first timer in Puerto Vallarta, a friend of mine recommended this hotel in the Zona Romantica. From check-in, daily house-keeping, location and customer service - all superb. Betsy at the front desk helped me book my eco tour and gave me tips on where to go. I will most certianly visit again.

Travel to puerto Vallarta at least 3 times a year and have stayed at several places in this area. We stayed at the penthouse and for off season the price was ok. Not too high but not a bargain. The room is more like an apartment cluttered with junk and was not really clean. We paid for half down on... More

We value everyone´s comments and we take them into consideration to improve our operation and our product. We are well aware that most of the harsh criticism in this comment comes as a reaction to a frustrating two-week long refunding procedure the customer has had to go through for a mistake we made on his final check. We are truly... More

Villa Mercedes has a great location in Zona Romantica. It's a snap to get nice taxi drivers. Betsy at the hotel's front desk helped me call for one when needed. I especially loved being a few feet from the ocean, so I could go back and forth to swim each day, and the lap pool at the hotel was a... More

Betsy was so sweet,and helpful. Raul was very nice and had wonderful suggestions, one being the... More

Stayed here in January. My friend and I had an incredible time. We couldn't have asked for a better location. A 30 second walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the strip with all the restaurants and cafes. The staff is absolutely amazing. I started to get a cold and I spoke to the front desk and... More

Having visited PV numerous times, I was anxious to stay here after finding out (a) it wasn't privately owned condos and (b) it was gay-friendly. Suffice to say that it met and/or exceeded all our expectations. You should book through the hotel instead of through a third-party website in order to get the best deals. Although the staff is very... More

The picture above is exactly the room I stayed in for 6 nights the end of May. The staff; Betzy and Cesar were just great and made me feel quite at home. The 3rd floor outdoor deck is a great place to have morning coffee and check e-mails ( although the WI-FI is in the room too!) The pool area... More

If you want the most charming accommodation in pv at a very affordable price , have a look at this small property: villa Mercedes . It may not have the most updated facilities but that is made up by the most caring and attentive service . Just steps away from the beach as well. You will feel like you are... More

Trying to decide where to start with this review. Hotel is tired and needs a major overhaul with the exception of the bedding. The mattress, pillows and linens are the best part of this hotel. They are great! I also like the fact the room I stayed in had two bathrooms. On my second day at this hotel, electricity in... More
