Benidorm Sunday and Wednesday Market

From yummy CUPCAKES to Adidas FAKES

Benidorm Sunday & Wednesday Market has it all and more.

Benidorm Market

The vast market located on the edge of Benidorm in the Rincon de Loix and it is vast, offers everything you could want in a bargain basement sort of way!  Even the most demanding deal conscious shopper should find plenty of happy stall holders willing to exchange your Euros for some look-a-like designer gear or a cheap handbag or two!

There is more to the infamous Benidorm market than meets the eye.  This is no ordinary market place, here you can enjoy a good few hours putting to rest those animal hunting instincts we all have and forage for treats to eat, clothes to wear and sneak up on some bargain booty hidden among row after row of stalls.

Benidorm Market

Of course there are the staple stalls found in every market such as long established fruit and veg businesses and sellers of pic-n-mix nuts, dried fruits and olives galore.  If cheap leather is your thing and brown is your colour!  You will find a dozen stalls retailing 50 shades of brown coats, bags, shoes, belts of course and even leather hats just like the traveller community wear.

Holidays in BenidormAt the back of the market are the cafeteria bars, which you will need after seemingly endless miles of walking up and down the market in the search of those special offers.  Enjoy burgers, beers and even Cupcakes or just a coffee then sit and watch the world go by.

Benidorm Sunday Market

Benidorm market is like Woolworth used to be, pile it high and sell it cheap.  They certainly do and despite a number of stalls arguably selling mainly tatty stuff, if you are keen eyed and enjoy a good routing there are many genuine bargains to be found.  Even the fake Adidas appear quite well made and would probably fool Adidas!  And those Cupcakes are quite delicious.

Bunches Flowers by PostWhatever your impression, Benidorm market has been around almost as long as Benidorm and is a must visit place either on Wednesday or Sunday.  There is a great atmosphere, it is busy and almost everyone seems to leave with arms full of carrier bags.  Get there early and remember it is all over by 2pm.  Keep a keen eye on your valuables as there are always a few Artful Dodger types willing to pick a pocket or two!

Hotel Pueblo Benidorm

Our mystery man on the street enjoys sneaky look the very pleasant PUEBLO HOTEL a popular 3* from SERVIGROUP.

In the top 30 hotels in Benidorm according to tripadvisor a fantastically well maintained hotel with great facilities and located away from the noise of the late bars, yet only a five minute hop to the beach and a stone throw from the famous Benidorm market.

Pueblo Hotel in Benidorm

THE HOTEL

A modern refurbished hotel offering 539 room spread over 15 floors in a traditional high-rise with views and unique to the Pueblo, 5 annexe buildings overlooking the pool and gardens with just 4 floors including ground floor rooms.  There are several guest areas each with a very different atmosphere including a large terrace to the front of the hotel, a café bar with pool terrace and a comfy lounge bar.

THE ROOMS

Hotel Pueblo Twin Room

Every room is bright, very well kept and exceptionally clean.  Light coloured beech wood and pale green colours create a very pleasant atmosphere.  Rooms enjoy a balcony or terrace with chairs and a table.  Bathrooms have great walk-in showers, attractive glass wash basin and of course a hairdryer.  Room facilities include FREE WiFi, flat screen TV with up to 60 channels including BBC and ITV also a room safe, telephone and air-conditioning or heating depending on the season.  All you need for a comfy holiday with a tip-top daily maid service.

THE FOOD

Served buffet style in a modern restaurant with funky chairs!  Unless you are really fussy everyone will find the food excellent, indeed servigroup are big on food!  The salads offer a big choice, every night there are stews, a Paella of the day, Pizzas and Pastas plus show cooking too.  Breakfast is vast with English favourites too.  We could not find anything to moan about, it was all good.  Dinner is served until 9pm, lunch until 3pm and a civilised breakfast until 10am.

THE POOL

Pueblo Hotel Pool and Gardens

Surrounded by the brightly coloured annexes and mature gardens and trees the pools offer an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Benidorm.  Lots of sunbeds and lots of space.  Enjoy two big pools and a Kiddies pool plus in winter a heated indoor pool.  The café bar terrace also overlooks the pool.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

pueblo-hotel

Three things really stand out at the Pueblo, lovely guest areas, very friendly and helpful staff (knowledgeable guest service desk in main lobby) and well above average food which was more 4* than 3*.  This is a good choice for couples and ideal for a low-season or mid-season holiday as less people are about.  The hotel is obviously well run and regular re-investment is high on the list of priorities in servigroup hotels, therefore you know that you are getting just what you have paid for.  Approved by many big tour operators including the likes of Jet2 holidays. We liked the Hotel Pueblo, very pleasant indeed. Great premium Gin & Tonic menu too!
