David R if you come out your hotel and turn left walk past the Hotel Jupiter till you come to the Irish bar on your left called Irelands eye. Opposite there is a shop selling Portugal football shirts etc and just passed it down a few steps there is a larger supermarket that is worth checking out. It is much bigger than the one across from the Oriental.

Hope this helps.

There is a spar in pdr which is good for basics, otherwise take the no 35 bus to Aqua shopping mall in Portimao where there is a large supermarket called Jumbo, then bus back!

Hi.

I have just returned from PDR. 21-4-14

it was my 1st time there, The little supermarket facing your hotel is very limited on food items ,But is very good for drinks. e.g - soft drinks, Beers, and wine.

but just down the street is the Spar supermarket, has a wide range of most things. No need to travel out of the resort.

As another post states, walk down towards the Irelands Eye bar, turn right and right facing the Baccauhs bar.

it's a very short walk, a couple of minutes.

there are also One or Two more supermarkets scattered around the resort.

There are a couple of mini markets in that area, but they don't have much variety to choose and the prices are often higher than super or hipermarkets. Use them mostly for a last minute emergency. The best choice is really to take a taxi or bus to McDonalds area, because nearby there is (as said) LIDL, ALDI and Continente. If you like to walk and don't need to go for big shopping lists, a 30 minute walk will take you from Oriental to McDonalds (about 3kms).

Try Aqua.Massive variety plus shops for the wife to browse while the husband can have a beer in the rooftop area,read the paper and when all is done get a taxi back.Well worth getting all done in one go.
