“Ideally situated for all that Es Mercadal has to offer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

This is a friendly and efficiently run small pension right in the centre of Es Mercadal. Bars, great restaurants, shops, cafés and free car parks are all a couple of minutes walk away from the pedestrianised street in which it is situated.

Very beautiful, clean and quiet B&B, in a very good central position in Es Mercadal, for us the best country we have seen in Minorca. Nice breakfast service. Supermarkets right close to the B&B.
Ciao to Estéban

We loved our stay in Es Mercadal which was made extra special by this great little hotel. Its location on one of the main (pedestrian) streets in the village means nothing is too far away - great pizzas at Gelat Gelat, fine dining at Ca'n Olga and some wonderful little shops and bakeries for picnic supplies. The town is ideally placed for exploring the island and there is a fabulous path right round the coast.
Esteban is a great host, friendly and helpful. The rooms are well sized and clean with good facilities and the breakfasts (as others have mentioned) provide a good start to the day...
I'm sure we'll return to this special place soon!

We stayed here for 4 nights whilst doing cycling tours of the area. Its as near to the centre of Menorca as you can get so ideally located for day trips around the island. The hotel is on the main (pedestrianised) street and 5 mins walk gets you to all the sites and restaurants. The market sets up right outside the front door. Room was a good size with a nice view across the rooftops at the back of the hotel and very quiet. Well furnished in a contemporary style. Good breakfast (incl cereals for us Brits !) with coffee & tea freshly prepared to order. There is free use of a PC for internet & emails and a lounge downstairs with large TV. Owner is very friendly and helpful and makes the stay that bit more special. Very enjoyable.

We spent 3 nights here as part of an Inntravel cycling holiday and thoroughly enjoyed both the hotel and the town.
The hotel is small and friendly with a very central location. Our room was ideal for us, reasonably large, shower, comfy chairs coffee table and desk. Nice secluded area grassed area at the rear perfect for sitting out in the early evening.
Breakfast was buffet style and exactly what you would expect anywhere in Spain with the added bonus of some excellent Minorcan cakes !!
Staff were really friendly and Esteven gave us soem great recommendations for places to eat - be sure to try Olga's.
I'm sure we'll go back

What a great location. We loved being in the centre of this village and felt we were immersed in the middle of Menorcan family life. We had a lovely room at the back of the hotel with doors out onto a terraced area which was so pretty and peaceful. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast pastries were fabulous washed down with a cup of freshly made coffee.

There are 2 SERIOUS PROBLEMS with this hotel...

FIRSTLY, they advertise as having air conditioning when for all intents and purposes they do not. Though they do indeed have an individual AC unit in each room, these units are all so weak that even on the coldest setting for a whole night, they are unable to bring the room temperature down below 25C (77F). After a sleepless night in the hot room, I had kindly asked the on-site manager (Toni) if we could possibly get a fan placed in our room as we were unable to sleep due to the temperature of the room. When she called the owner (Manuel) to ask for his permission to purchase a fan, he denied her the permission, stating that the rooms have air-conditioning and so there is no need for a fan!

The SECOND, and more serious, problem with this hotel is the owner... After a 2nd sleepless night, we were left with no choice but to change hotels for our remaining 3 nights. After viewing and reserving a room (and checking the A/C) at the Hostal Jeni, a couple of blocks away, we returned to check out of the Hotel Es Mercadal. After calling someone for guidance, the fellow at the front desk had prepared a bill charging us for 2 nights accomodation plus 40% of the remaining 3 nights that we had planned to stay. He said this was the early departure policy in Spain. LOL. I had actually asked the hotel, via email, before booking our room, what their cancel and change penalties were as there was nothing on their web-site about this. They had replied there would be 1 night penalty if cancelled less than 1 week prior to arrival. Nothing about early departure penalty. Never mind the fact that they advertise as having A/C, when for all intents and purposes, they do not. Never mind we were even willing to stay at their hotel had they spent a measly 25 Euros on a fan for our room. When I told him we didn't feel they were due anything beyond the 2 nights accomodation, he called the owner (in Barcelona) and passed the phone to me. The owner then started berating and insulting us ("there is no problem with the hotel, it is you that have problems with your metabolisms"). Yes, I know, I couldn't believe this was really happening and not just a dream! After 15 minutes on the phone, he finally told the fellow at the front desk to redo the bill with just 2 nights accomodation on it. I felt badly for the fellow working the front desk to have been put in such an awkward position. He actually revealed to us that they had someone check their AC units when they were initially put in as they found them to be very weak as well. When it turned out there was nothing wrong with them - they were just very weak units, they actually had a second one installed in the front desk area. Regardless, we paid and left.

Unfortunately that wasn't the end of my ordeal with the Hotel Es Mercadal. A few days after returning from Spain, I received an email from the owner stating that they verified the temperature in the room and accused us of lying so they had just charged my credit card for 100% of the 3 additional nights. (So, let's see... we went from no early departure fee to 40% to 100%, what was next 200%?) When I replied stating that I would naturally be contesting this charge with my credit card company, he sent what could only be described as an odious email.

As expected, the charge was reversed by my credit card company.

I don't like having to put such a one-sided review up, but given our experience, feel the behaviour of the owner here negates any of the positives.

The opinion of these customers is an isolated case and have no reason, because our hotel has air conditioning,
The technicians reviewed the air conditioning, and of course, working properly at 22ºC, recommended temperature by O.M.S
