Supermarkets / liquior store by verandah

Going to Antigua in July with my family and staying at the verandah. I need a supermarket as well a liquior store as we have the two bedroom villa and not on the AI. . Any input would be greatly appreciated. Also how much would a taxi be back and forth

You've already asked this, and been answered - tripadvisor.co.uk/…58029524

No supermarkets or liquor stores have opened in the meantime near the Verandah, and none will do so in the next few weeks.

You will need to shop on the way to the resort - Gourmet Basket is the only supermarket on the way, or you could detour to one of the large stores. Otherwise you will need to make the trip back to St Johns or down to Falmouth to buy supplies. The local superettes will have some things, but certainly not all you need. Bear in mind also that you have limited kitchen facilities - without a large fridge, so may well need to shop more than once.

There are a couple of places to eat on Long Bay (though La Tartaruga might not be open all the time), so you may well end up using the resort restaurants, and this will be comparatively expensive. It really isn't a place that's geared up for self-catering, and you might find it better to take the AI option for at least part of your stay.

Have to agree with mizGeorge.. You will struggle without all inclusive at the verandah - there are no shops locally and you will be totally reliant on taxis plus do you really want micowaved meals all holiday ?

The foods really good at the verandah - do yourself a favour and upgrade -
