Trip advice

The nearest airport is Faro - about 73km, 50 min drive. You can also fly into Lisbon, which is about a 2.5hr drive.

Car hire is not too dear in Portugal so you can also consider this as an option. There is plenty of parking at our hotel.

Public transport options:

We can organise a taxi pickup for you. A private car will be roughly €120. We will also be running a van from Faro airport to our hotel on Portimao on Thursday. Please check with us; we will offered shared cost transport for this.

There is also a train which requires you to first take a coach from the airport to Faro centre, then board a train. The total journey will be about 2.5 hours and cost about €12 per person. You simply take a taxi from the train station to our hotel.

UBER users may consider this option - anywhere from €60-€90 from the airport direct to our hotel.

From LISBON Airport

To take the train, you will first take a coach to Lisboa Oriente train station, then the train itself to Tunes, then change trains to Portmao. The total journey is about 6 hours; and will cost about €45.

There is a bus, which you take first to Lisboa Oriente station then a direct bus to Portimao. This is about 5 hrs and costs about €30.

In either case, you simply take a taxi from the train station to our hotel.

Of course our package customers will simply take our shuttle service.
If you are not in a package with us, the circuit is only about a 10 minute drive, so a taxi is your best bet. You can also drive - if you are a VIP or Team experience customer of ours, you can request a parking pass. These are not guaranteed for parties of fewer than 4, but we frequently can provide.
