the hotel sticks out amongst the others not only is it a prime location but the views you get from the hotel are amazing. the hotel itself is great, the staff was amazing and the people were all friendly!
This was--I'm guessing--my 20th or so visit to PV, but my first stay at Villa Mercedes. It was great! I always stay in the Romantic Zone or old Vallarta and NOT the resort area because I want to feel like I'm visiting Mexico, not Miami, when I'm in PV. Accommodations can seem a bit rustic viewed with American eyes, but the service is authentic Latin American joy.
Villa Mercedes, located in the heart of the Romantic Zone was no more than 100 steps from the beach and a dozen really good restaurants--including the one in the hotel. It's a few blocks from the diverse night life, and a block off of Olas Altos with all of it's cafes and shops. All of it very safe and very friendly.
The hotel has a very intimate feel--I don't think there could be more than 25 rooms--and the staff is very friendy and helpful. Even though I'd like to see better locks for the room doors, I felt very secure there. The room was clean, comfortable, and inviting, and the bed was very comfortable--unlike their neighbor hotel across the street where beds of nails have been installed!
Villa Mercedes has my hearty recommendation. I'll be back!

Boutique lodging steps away from the beach in a historic hacienda-style building. Very private yet one of the best locations …More
I've been coming here for at least twice a year and staying here. We were always treated very well, staff were very courteous and always willing to go beyond. Esteban, Betulio, Eluzabeth, Laura, Cesar were a few names that stick out. I always called when I needed something and prompt service was given. I absolutely Love Mexican night!! I love the Food!!!
Convenient location close to the beach, bus lines, flea market, pier and boardwalk in Old Town. We ate the best cart food at Raffiel's marlin and shrimp tacos one block away! Correct information about snorkeling from a private boat rental and close by massage came from Paulo, the manager. Plus, you can't beat the fresh fruit and eggs every morning!
Nice play to stay in the middle of it all. Room was clean, a/c is so-so. Hotel staff were great especially Dora at the front desk. Every day I had a million questions and she happily answered. Dora gave me great recommendations from the gym, to stores, coffee, and even medicine when i realized i had forgotten mine. This kind of service is what makes me want to rebook.
