I made a trip to Puerto Vallarta by myself, and researched numerous hotels online before going. I choose Mercurio and was VERY glad that I did. Many other hotel guests were on their 7th and 8th stay at the Mercurio. The Mercurio is not a resort (like the ones 20 minutes away), but it is a FANTASTIC charming hotel right in the middle of all the Puerto Vallarta action. I couldn't have wished for a better location. A short walk to blue chairs/green chairs, short walk to the malecon, bars... just a great location. The hotel is just enough. Comfortable, clean and best of all very affordable. A treat is a made to order breakfast each morning (rico!). I asked other guests about other hotels, and they told me they had stayed at other ones only once, and always returned to the Mercurio. When I go back I will stay at the Mercurio (hopefully the exact same room!). My room was on the first floor by the pool. I could exit my room (even leave it unlocked) and congregate with others while keeping an eye on my room (very, very safe). I was shocked on a Wednesday when I returned from a Zip Line excursion to an awesome pool party with water baloons and water guns (it was so much fun)... you didn't have to know the people you were playing with... everyone just had a great time. The bar is great (opens at 3)... a beer is around one dollar (WAY, WAY better value than paying an enormous price for an all-inclusive that serves watered down drinks). They'll make drinks on request (and even look them up). I'm so happy I stayed there. I would also recommend booking the Grayline transportation from the Airport to the Hotel (and the return trip). Very nice (they wait for you with your name on a sign and coordinate everything) allowing you to enjoy your time in PV. Loved it, loved it, loved it!!! Awesome people, awesome guests. Thanks Mercurio!!!
