Alisupermarket - Opening Times

by AvlorFan

Hi, can anyone please let me know what are the opening times of the larger of the supermarkets near the taxi rank. Especially is it open on Sundays.

Re: Alisupermarket - Opening Times

I am 99% certain it is open on Sunday mornings. During the week it is 9am to 7pm at least.

Ali Super is currently closed for a refit. There is a mini market at the top of the hill from the taxi rank, where the shoe shop was, opposite the tourist office.

Top Tip: take a taxi from the rank and ask to go to Continente in Portimao, it will take about 5 mins and cost about €5. It's a proper supermarket in a shopping complex, prices are much better, range is wider, and even though it will cost you maybe €10 there and back you will save it on food/drink bills if you are self catering for a week.

Travel Tips for Alvor

Let sleeping dogs lie

by antz

It would appear that a local custom in Alvor, is for all the dogs to come out at night and find a nice patch of sand to sleep on!

We saw this sight one night when looking for a restaurant, and heading towards where there are some high rise buildings.

Great Breakfasts

by Balam about EL REI Snack Bar & Restaurant

Restaurant EL REI is a lovely small restaurant with friendly and helpful staff.
The food is good with large portions. We always go here for breakfast on our first morning and will have lunch here a couple of times.
The Chicken Piri Piri is lovely but best of all is the lovely home made chips, BIG CHUNKY CHIPS not your little french fries or bought in frozen ones here but real great chips. Full English breakfast is great.
Chicken Piri Piri is good
The Chips are fantastic

Chinese Buffet

by Balam about Hang Zhou Chinese Restaurante

Newly opened in what used to be the Hong Kong Shopping, this restaurant has the same menu and offers as the Chinese Garden
(which leads me to think that it is owned by the same people) but also offers a
'All you can eat' Buffet for just 9.90E per person (3.90E for children below 1.5m)
They offer a good selection of dishes (25 items in total plus fruits puddings etc)
It is certainly well worth the money.

Roman Ruins

by Balam

The Abicada ruins of a Neolithic village retaining traces of subsequent Roman occupation (with what was once a Fine Roman Villa dating back to 1st/4th century with several rooms and a peristyle decorated with coloured mosaics bearing geometric patterns and stylised designs

From Alvor, go up towards the EN125 and turn left towards Lagos for about a mile and a half, when you wil see a sign for the Roman Ruins. About twenty yards after the sign, turn left down a road with the railway line on the right. This road then turns into a dirt track, keep going straight on, past the point of "This can't be the right way..." and keep going past some derelict farm houses until the end of the road where there is a turning circle in the dirt. The ruined villa is right infront of you.

Halloween

by Balam

Their are many Festivals in Portugal and they can be fun to watch or to join in, we are usually In Alvor for Halloween and It can really be fun, Shops, Resaraunts, bars are all decorated. Locals and tourists Dress up and all the Local Children walk around collecting Sweets and other goodies. so if your going to be in Alvor on October 31st . Don't forget your costume.
