Re: Restaurants on visit

Must have overlapped, family and me there for 3 weeks until 15 August!! Useful comments about your experiences. Never been to Chef's Kitchen, O Albatroz or Pashmina yet. Totally agree with Jomar, we do lunch and dinner there (not on same day I'd add!!!) Twice went to the Gurka place, verdict? Jury ...

Re: Rising prices

I worked in a shop many years ago. 2 reasons then for the 99p on things. They thought it would look 99p cheaper as people would only look at the £ amount. More importantly in the times of a manual till, the till had to be opened to give the 1p change so shop assistants were less likely to pocket th...

You collect the car as normal at airport and they collect it at your accommodation xx days later. Free if 6 days or more €15 for under 6 days. No other company offer th...

Re: Bus from Lagoa to seville

Hi Tricky, long time no see, It looks like there is only one bus from Lagoa daily at 07:05 until 31/06, and the ticket office is not open at that time so ticket has to be a bought online or day previously. The service from Lagoa looks pretty poor even during the summer. http://www.algarvebus.info/00...

Always use Faro shuttle bus - cheapest and less hassle than ANY of the others - did you know Ryanair is a shareholder? If you fly RY and book transport that's who you get and they are def.the cheapest Afaik Faro bus shuttle, Viages Rusadir, and Escudo are one and the same. They share a desk at Faro...

Re: Resort Hoppa

Hoppa have changed their suppliers from Greenbus to Escudo ( from last November). Apparently too many complaints about the long wait at the airport last year. Bit more here The company Escudo Tours Agencia de Viagens Lda was set up in 2013 and is a Portuguese subsidiary of Spanish bus tours and excu...

Re: Taste Restuarant

Passed by both premises today. Both undergoing a lot of renovation.

The workmen at the ‘old’ Taste appear to getting working on a roof terrace and some walls appear to be being knocked.

The ‘new’ Taste is undergoing a lot of work and it is taking shape but a lot still to do looking at it today.

Re: Faro Airport

To answer my own question; there is only an ‘automated’ post office at Faro airport: No staff and no WiFi top ups available. None in the newsagents either.


Still work being carried out, in the entreance hall to the side of the stairs/escalators before passport control.

Re: Faro Airport

Agreed, a vast improvement. Still room for more though, seating area close to the transfer kiosks (greenbus, hoppa etc) is required. ( during the busy season there’s customers standing everywhere waiting for their transfers) The chemist is closed, I would have thought at an airport this was a basic....
