May 2018

Just booked a holiday May 16th-23rd. Does anyone know if it will be hot this time of year? Also we plan on going to the big intermarche when we get there. Don’t plan on carrying bags back so does anyone know of a local taxi service number so we can ring to collect/drop us back to our apartment?. Is Olhos expensive too? Was in Lagos last year and it was very expensive

Hi Simonestack,

Don’t know any local taxi numbers off the top of my head, but you will probably be able to get the information from your villa/apartment/hotel. There are two taxi ranks in Olhos, and one of them is only a couple of minutes walk from the Intermarche. It is in front of the parade of shops opposite the Oceanus Hotel.

In my opinion, Olhos is not expensive in general, and cheaper than many of the resorts we have stayed at in Europe. We find the Intermarche to be decent value, also there is a Chinese shop in the village which sells all manor of things. Coffee/beer/wine etc are all well priced at local coffee shops and cafes, and many of the local restaurants offer a 3 Course lunch or dinner which includes a drink for around 10 euros. There are a few restaurants which are more expensive than most, and if you look at TA reviews, you will be able to identify these. The season hasn’t yet started in Olhos, but for the past few years the Aqua Bar (large bar and restaurant) at the bottom of the beach road has had a daily ‘happy hour’ running between about 10am and 5pm, where the price of a large draught beer has been only one euro. It’s in a lovely sunny spot too. Weather should be very pleasant in May.

Albufeira area taxi number is 289 583 230 they speak English. Or you can use their 'app' at http://www.taxis-albufeira.pt/

Minimum fare on weekdays is €3,25 at weekends €3.90 for up to 3km and they will add €1,60 for bags in the boot - combined price not for each! Also if you ring for a taxi they add another 80 cents, but there is a taxi rank by the bus stop about 200 yards from Intermarché.
