Hotel Mercurio, strategically located in the center of the Romantic Zone, is a small and quaint hotel boasting the friendliest staff of all Puerto Vallarta. The staff takes a personal interest in each guest's comfort and always do everything with a smile. The rooms are small and inexpensive creating a very intimate setting. I have enjoyed the hotel at least... More

Very nice staff! Hotel is right in the middle of restaurants and bars. It is nice to just walk out your front door and you are there. Fun pool and bar scene. Yes the rooms could be a little upgraded, but amazing for the price.

Much like any traveller I read all the reviews, etc. and my choices were between the Casa Capula, the Vallarta Cora and Hotel Mercurio........so glad I picked the Mercurio. I was fortunate enough to do some partying over at Casa Capula, and it is a SPECTACULAR property with absolutely gorgeous and modern rooms, excellent gym, yada yada. but it's twice... More

Julian, I cannot thank you enough for your kind - and thorough! - commentary! We work so hard to make everyone's stay exactly as you describe it. And by "we" I mean all of the staff. It matters to all of us. And many of our staff have been part of the Mercurio family since 2002, when I purchased the... More

Here's my take on Hotel Mercurio. Usually when I come to PV, I stay in the Hotel Zone and have also stayed in Nuevo Vallarta. Being a solo gay traveler, I decided to stay in the Zona Romantica, and it didn't really matter whether it was gay or straight or mixed. I wanted value and comfort. Actually, what I wanted... More

Dear OC, Thank you for taking the time to report on your experience at Hotel Mercurio. Allow me to address each item in turn. The king mattress in 307 is a pillow top, as are all of our mattresses. We actually have a regular guest who requests that room because he specifically likes a soft mattress and has found the... More

I was worried about booking the hotel based on some of the reviews. Granted the hotel has some outdated parts, however this is what allows the rates to be so competitive! Ultimatly the two most important points are: 1. AMAZING Staff 2. Very clean rooms and common areas

I just stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. The rooms were very modest, and comfortable enough. I read some of the negative reviews and I never felt scammed like other reviews noted. My room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool. It was clean but dated....but I was there to have fun so I didn't hang in... More

Awesome service. Fun Sunday pool party. Jorge the bartender was fantastic and a lot of fun!! The hot breakfast was more than I expected. The rooms are definitely due for updating, but the location and price more than make up for it.

Its been almost 3 years since the last time I stayed at the Mercurio and I can honestly say I had a great time. The hotel is slap bang in the centre of Zona Romantica, close to the beach and bars of PV. The Mercurio offers great value and excellent service. The rooms are a little small and dated but... More

We just came back from PV and were staying at Mercurio for five days. Hotel was very clean and everything worked just fine - shower, toilet, AC and refrigerator. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It is a short walk to the gay beach and closed to all the good places in town (clubs, bars, restaurants, etc...) We had a... More
