There's a shop called Orange(?) near the Dom Joao. It sells basic groceries but don't know if they do ready made sandwiches. It's a small supermarket and I have used it in the past for water, wine etc. There's another shop near the bowling rink. Both shops are very near your hotel.

You can get fresh bread and pastries in Ali Super, and they have reasonably priced hams and cheese on the deli counter. We always made our own rolls for the beach! Didn't notice anything pre-packed though.

The shop near the Dom Joao is basic, as CAM52 says, I tried it when we stayed nearby at the Luna Alvor Bay and much preffered the 5 minute walk or so to the Alisuper.

If you're going to walk to AliSuper, you may as well travel the extra hundred meters or so to get to Pao & Pao. The bread there is so fresh and tasty that it's worth the extra distance.

We found a place! Turn right out of Dom joao hotel and next to it is a place called Mel & canela its a bakery\diner does ice creams, waffles, sandwiches and baked goods. Set menus are good value e.g. menu 1, baguette with tuna salad or chicken salad and fries and can of Pepsi €5.50

Coffee €1

Waffle with ice cream €2

Lovely place

Cheap as chips 🙌

Chips in England are very expensive, at least where I am at the moment. Bad comparison these days! :-)
