There is a supermarket under 10 mins walk called HiperTrebol, IMO not the best but you will certainly pay a lot less than on the complex. Over the road from here you have a Hiper Dino Express (next to the bus station) nice but more expensive. Near the Paradise Park Hotel (20 - 25 min walk) there is a new DialPrix which is nice and very reasonable. You also have a Mercadona which is in the area called El Camison, nice selection, good prices but again 20 min walk so you may find it easier to walk there and taxi back.

Thanks, I'm hiring a car for my stay so distance is no problem, reason I asked for nearest is just for first evening/morning! Don't fancy venturing out to far in the car in an unknown place in the dark!

Ah well in that case just get a couple of bits in HiperTrebol then the next morning head along the TF1 towards Adeje. You will pass Gran Sur shopping centre on your right and there is a Mercadona there but more expensive as used by tourists. So continue on to the Los Olivos turning. Once you have exited you will be driving parallel to motorway until you see a mini roundabout, take 3rd exit and drive in front of sports centre, at the next roundabout (only a few yards away) take 2nd exit, and you are on the back road to Mercadona, again it is only a few yards - the big orange building. If you drive out of the opposite side of the supermarket car park at a weekend there is the farmers market near Makro from 8 - 1.30 so you can pick as much fruit or veg as you need rather than large bags. The journey sounds difficult but it is really easy when you have done it once and is only about 10km max.

If you come out of your hotel and head right downhill go past las Madiguras ,Villa Mandi ,Golf Resort then round the next corner right you will come to Compostello Beach Golf II Apartments where a new shopping area is being built after which is the local law courts go down the road that separates them, to the dual carriage way turn right across the front of the law courts and head across the crossing .Once over head left and round the first corner ,just round the corner is another crossing go over and continue right you will go past Mare Ola Portosin and Mareola Park ( painted pink so easy to spot) continue past Uddalla Park,turn left and Mercadonna is just round the corner on the left .

You will only see stairs or lift Down to the supermarket ,make sure you use stairs or lift to come back up ,as from store level you can access a road but may throw your bearings out getting back on route .Taxi stand just in front of the supermarket as you come out from using stairs or lift .

Hope this helps

When you arrive Beanz either when coming through the airport arrivals keep an eye out for reps from Tenerife Pearl they give out bumf in which there are maps ( not trying to sell you anything ,just leaflet distribution) OR at your hotel there will be similar maps .In Tenerife directiions are given by what hotels you pass on route.Pick one or two up these are always handy and from the directions given earlier you will find your way around .

The new shopping area mentioned was not open or ready in June but might be by the time you arrive ,maybe check it out as it holds a big supermarket .
