Luggage on last day

Has anyone any ideas on where we can leave our luggage on our last day? We are staying in Albufeira- the encosta da orada apartments, have to be out by 10 am and the taxi is not picking us up til 4 pm for the airport. We do not mind if there is a small charge.

I would imagine encosta de orada would have somewhere you could use.

There is no commercial facility as such anywhere in town. If you have become on friendly terms with any bar owners during your stay they might oblige. Trouble is not many will be open at 1000am.

If you can change your transfer time, there are a couple of limited facilities in the town of Faro eg a kiosk at the railway station. Faro is a town where you could spend a few hours before heading for the airport by taxi.

You might be able to rearrange the taxi time and leave in the morning for the airport? Store your luggage there and go to Faro island beach which is not even 10 min. from the airport.

How about the place people have mentioned before ....Scoobies? ! It's up just past CS Sao Rafael Hotel which is not too far from you. It's a bar/restaurant with outside facilities, pool, changing rooms etc. There have been a few recommendations for it to people who have asked the same question as you. Maybe re arrange taxi to there and then a pick up.?

Here is a link and it includes reviews from people in your situation.

"...just past CS Sao Rafael Hotel"

Up the whopping great steep hill you can see across the marina! You would need a taxi to get to Scooby's from Encosta da Orada.

If I was at home around the corner from Encosta da Orada and for an exorbitant charge...but I won't be!

Cubsur , yes too far to walk but I did actually suggest a taxi there! One of the reviews mentioned the owner came and got them! So.....maybe a visit there one day and suss it all out.

Thank you for your help! Can't leave luggage at apartment unfortunately. Scoobies looks good checked out website and they can arrange to collect from apartment. Has good reviews so i think problem solved! Have 2 children and there will be plenty to keep them occupied. Will update on our return.

Jayjan, probably makes sense to re arrange the taxi to pick them up from Scoobies. Sounds like problem solved though. Will look out for their feedback.

Good thinking Liverpoolman. Hopefully Chrissee can re-arrange her pick up location with taxi transfer.
