Vilamoura

Hi there all, can anyone advise on the following:

Staying in apartments called Marina Buzios near to marina and beach, travelling with husband and three kids aged 3 5 8 , no car, are there supermarkets near by does anyone know? if not how much do taxis cost if we all went - would local supermarkets do or better stocking up when we arrive?

Hope someone can help and thank you !!

If you have a look at the "top questions" (right hand side of this page) you'll find all info about supermarkets. Spar is closest, 5-7 min. walking. In general you'll find all you need here. Another supermarket is Jafers, also 5 min.

Taxis are cheap, but where you are you could do everything walking.

Got back this morning after staying at Marina Buzios! Had a brilliant holiday, as said above the supermarket Jafers is a five minute walk away, if that, and will sell everything you need at reasonable prices, try to get a ground floor apartment as you get a lovely garden and is split on two levels! The first floor apartments only have a small balcony. The only downside is 'hitler' runs the swimming pool and is the not the happiest of people I have met and no sunbeds are included as they are not included by these apartments. Any other questions feel free to ask! Have a great time, we sure did x

Taxis are very cheap in Portugal most journeys less than €10 usually about 5 not a bad bus service between Vilamoura some very good beaches just beyond the harbour use only bottled water especially for the kids.
