Just returned from a ten night stay at Il Mercato. Lets start with the good points. Met some lovely folk, and was made very welcome. The staff are great whether that is front desk, waiters, cleaners, or animation. I could find little to say against them, my own cleaner for room 2241 was great, always a happy word, good service, and some amazing towel creations! The hotel looks good, with good clean pools, a good lobby, and pool bar, overall it is very presentable. My room in particular was very nice. Food, I would say was of the quality you would expect. If you are looking for "egg and chips" you best go back to Benidorm. Entertainment was as you would expect, the usual line up of quizes, comps, and of course Belly Dancing. Ok so thats the good points, on the negative I would say the location was poor, the immediate area was run down, with loads of rubbish, and half complete, and partially demolished buildings. My travel agency said the hotel had its beach, and it does, but not attached to the hotel, you go there by bus, one to be aware of. Would I go back? Probably not. Not because it was bad, but would like a better location. In particular loved the area around Soho sq.
