One of the largest and most popular supermarkets in Benidorm is the Spanish retailer, Mercadona Supermarket. With 4 branches in the city, holidaymakers should not have to go far for their grocery shopping. If you don't speak the language, it's always advisable when visiting any Spanish run store to google translate some important words relating to your shopping list. Having said that, with Benidorm having such a large amount of English speaking visitors each year, quite a few of the staff in the Mercadona's I have frequented do try their best and can usually get the gist of what you're asking.
All the stores are air conditioned and the larger ones usually offer free parking. They provide wheelchair access and ample shopping trolleys and smaller wheeled shopping carts. The aisles are spacious and the shelves well stocked with tinned, bottled and dry goods. Throughout the stores there are refrigeration units and freezers offering an excellent selection of prepacked food items, as well as a small selection of both soft and alcoholic cold drinks. Mercadona offer a range of vegetarian options and ready meals that includes lactose and gluten free products.
All stores have fresh fruit, vegetables, bakery, meat and fish departments, an extensive selection of fruit juice, soft drinks, beer, wine and spirits, as well as food on the go such as sandwiches, pastries and cakes. There are aisles dedicated to household goods, cleaning products, cosmetics and toiletries, baby and infant products, as well as pet food and treats. Throughout the Mercadona supermarket outlets there are a selection of imported goods, although for a far wider choice, Benidorm is home to the popular UK supermarket Iceland.
