I suggest you go to Albufeira (Ferreiras) station.

Usually there are taxis at the railway station but just in case you need it, here's a website:

Sound advice above. Tunes is a small place and I have never seen a taxi waiting there. Albufeira by far the best bet even though it is a bit further away. If no taxi is waiting the number to call is on the website mentioned above.

Make sure you have the full address of the place you are going to as resort is NOT in Porches village, rather it is a couple miles away near Alporchinos and Senhora da Rocha. The Albufeira taxi drivers may not know this.

Do you have to travel from Lisbon by train? We looked into that before we did the journey to Alporchinhos (Porches) from there a while back. The best option was to travel by coach from Lisbon, which drops you off in Armacao de Pera. From there it is just a few minutes in a taxi to Palmeiras. The bus was just as quick as the train would have been too. (Sorry if this is too late, just noticed you posted in July).
