Mirachoro 2, Portimao - 1st Week in Oct 2014

I'm staying here for a very cheap getaway for 1 week and wondered how far it was into the main town area, can anyone help?

I'm happy to get a cab if the walk is too far (if there are any cabs?).

Also, are places likely to be open at this time of year or will I need to spend my days on the beach or by the pool?

"how far it was into the main town area"

It's about a 3 / 4 of a mile from the centre of Portimão, 400 yards from a large shopping centre and about 500 yards from the beach at Praia da Rocha. Portimão is a city of 56,000 so there are taxis. There is also a local minibus network but it stops at around 8pm on weekdays and there are very few buses at weekends.

The waterparks etc will mostly be closing down at the end of September. Otherwise, not quite sure what you mean by "are there places open.."
