There is a supermarket a few yards from the entrance to the Capistrano village so if your apartment is close to the entrance you could walk to the store. I don't know about delivery but I am sure someone will.

Supersol near the entrance to the village will deliver for a couple of euros and it is free of charge if you spend over 120 euros. Just ask at the checkout.

Mercadona also deliver for a few euros, you can also shop online with Mercadona, in English and book a delivery time within a two hour slot, just as you do in the UK www.mercadona.es

Make sure you know the complete address of where you are staying

Hi trying to decide whether or not we need a car. Trying to find the supersol mentioned near the entrance on google maps but can't. Is it a large supermarket or just a convenience store. We hope to cook and BBQ etc. any other supermarkets near by.

Thanks

Hi Kathleen, there is a new Mercadona supermarket opening next month, it is situated beside the Hotel Los Arcos, very convenient for you.

Don't know if anything has changed but Supersol used to only deliver if it was before a certain time in a morning.

We had 2 trolleys full at about midday and they refused to deliver but rang us a taxi which we had to pay for of course.

Hi Kathleen

I'm not sure how long your trip is for, but if you need to do more than one shop OR it's a big shop and you don't want the hassle of bus/walk or taxi back to where you're staying you could "register" with Mercadona (not sure how long it takes to go through) and then wander round, do your shopping and then ask for it to be delivered.

Not sure whether they'll be any English speaking staff working there though, but there might be, otherwise unless you speak the lingo it could prove tricky - just another option for you.

Good luck.

Excellent news Jerome, i just know that in one of the branches in Torremolinos it's quite difficult to register (if you don't speak the lingo) as they don't speak English :)

Thanks for confirming that for the Nerja branch, and hopefully the new one will be the same when it opens in February....

Regards.
