I visit this hotel because of the employees. This is my 9th visit. The rooms are old but I had a room on third floor and it was super clean, except for the one day ,when the usual guy was off. I was there for special Sunday nite events and at the place the waiters keep all the tips, so...

If you're looking for luxury than stay at one of the resorts. This place is simple, convenient, clean and has an awesome staff. The breakfast in the mornings are absolutely great, The bar in the late afternoon and evening is very enjoyable, and on Sundays it's a blast. This place is close to everything and you can walk to the...

Is Mercurio a modern boutique hotel? No. But it is clean, comfortable, well equipped and full of character. In an ideal location. Beach less than 5 minutes walk, gay bars less than 10 and 100's of restaurants close by. And the breakfast is unreal! What makes this place stand out though are the people who work there. It is very...

If you're looking for a fancy resort experience, this is not for you. But if you want a nice hotel in the heart of the Zona Romantica, blocks from the beach and anything else you might want including dining and shopping .... Come to Mercurio. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff. Alex, Adan, Briam, Rafael, David, Jorge... Just...

This hotel may not be 5 star but the staff and their willingness to make every guest's stay an enjoyable one is! Great breakfast, kind, helpful staff. Had a wonderful time. The hotel is centrally located so if your hungry or bored, everything is right outside your door including the beach which is just a block away. It's also just...

All the other reviews that say the staff and (included) breakfast is great are right, and it is a great location--just a block away from the pier/beach and near lots of great restaurants, but there are a few issues. Hot water in the shower was a hit or miss, mostly a miss (I only had 1 warm shower in a...

Thanks for your helpful comments. We are reviewing the cleaning issue with housekeeping. Being summer, in a hot, humid tropical climate, mildew is a constant battle for everyone here. But as you noted, we do clean with BLEACH to ensure that it is germ free. Nonetheless, it does get under the caulking in the showers, and every so often that...
