Food prices

Was just wondering what the average price is for the basics such as: cheese, milk, bread, continental hams, bottles of beer, wine, crisps etc. will be staying at los claveles so led to believe the spar is our nearest though there is a small mini market on site too. Also has anyone stayed in Los claveles, we are in a 1 bed apartment (pool view), photos look really nice. Restaurant supposed to be ok too, anyone used it, thanks in advance

Hi, we find food prices are cheaper than in the UK, as long as you avoid UK brand names. So bread stick 0.45€, sliced cheese 0.95€, 2L bottle lemonade 0.75€. Wine can be as cheap as 0.75€' although I suggest you pay about 2.00€. Crisps are expensive, as are some potatoes.

You can find a 3 course meal from 7.50€, beef burgers from 2.50€.

I would suggest rather than use the Spar shop you go to HyperTrebol which is a supermarket round the corner from where you are staying. This shows your apartments at B and the supermarket at A http://g.co/maps/5n4hr

Milk varies between €0.49 - €0.75 a litre

Bread 3 pack of large baguettes €1.20

2L bottles of soft drinks own brands from €0.65 Coca Cola, Pepsi etc €1.40

Butter €0.90 unless you go for something like Kerrygold which is approx €1.90

8L water €1.25

Beer varies sometimes special offers can be €0.19 a tin.

Best crisps are at Iceland - Walkers, otherwise Ruffles crisps but IMO greasy

Cooked meats best from meat counter as you can say how many slices rather than buy pre-packages. Prices vary.

Stayed in Los Claveles a long time ago, it was lovely only criticism we had an outside spiral staircase and it was difficult getting suitcases up it, but room was clean, spacious and staff were lovely.

Good entertainment from Aidy Evans 1 night a week not sure what they have the other nights.

Hi Kieron , Just another bit of advice if you drink tea or coffee it's worthwhile to bring your own with you ( For coffee I bring the Foil refill packs) as it is a lot more expensive for UK brands and I have never found a nice Spanish tea! They don't take up any weight in your luggage either. Have a good holiday

As per previous post I'm looking to budget 80-90 euro per day so looks like this will be manageable?

I think that's plenty . Breakfasts most places are only about 3 euros for full English You can have a very good meal with a good bottle of wine for 30 to 40 euros for 2 ,if you wanted to have a few special dinners.And you can eat much cheaper than that if you want There are lots of Chinese buffets,burger and pizza places .Wine and spirits are a lot cheaper than the Uk . Spanish style and Mercadonna sell Smirnoff ,Gordons etc for 10 euros a litre) Just avoid the "mini" supermarkets if you can as they are usually ridiculously expensive.

One final question (honest)! Does spar/hyper trebol have deli counters as we would like to buy olives etc for salads, and finally is feta cheese widely available?

Olives are sold in packs or tins and there are loads and loads to choose from they are on the shelves amongst the general groceries. Feta cheese can be found in the cold cabinet alongside butter, yoghurt etc. The deli counter sells meats, cheese etc.

If you are in Los Cris and want a cheap but good quality meal then try the Olive Garden along the front just past the crazy golf. The bread for the sandwiches is baked on the premises. The sandwiches are doorstop slices with a massive amount of filling (tuna mayonnaise) served with chips and salad garnish. Prices start from €2.95 (some fillings attract an extra euro). On an evening here they have specials which are great value for around €7 - .€10 for 3 course meal,

Don´t be afraid to order 1 meal to share, it is quite common.
