HELP: How to get from Club Marbella to El Porton?

Hello,

We are traveling from Malaga Airport to El Porton in Calahonda. I know which train and bus to get to go to Club Marbella where we need to check in (get out at Camping Los Jarales right?) but can we walk up the hill to El Porton or do we need a taxi? If yes, where can we get a taxi and how much will that approximately cost? Furthermore, what is the closest supermarket to shop for groceries for a whole week (so something like Lidl, not too expensive and a wide variety of food).

Thank you in advance!

I would seriously consider hiring a car! El Porton is way up in the hills at Calahonda and 2km from Club Marbella where you will be checking in! The nearest shops are miles away! Here's a link to the Google Maps of where it is:

Here's a link to the TA Reviews on the resort as well (you will need to do the google translate for most of them). They all recommend hiring a car!

There are shops at El Zocco, Los Olivios, Campanarios (all at the bottom of the hill close to the N340 motorway, including a Lidl at Campanarios (used to be called Los Cypresses).

Thank you for your help!

We know it is up the hill, but 2 km is okay for us. We don't have the money to hire a car unfortunately, but we don't mind walking. We would consider taking a taxi when going up the hill with our luggage and when shopping for groceries. Is there a taxi stand somewhere close to Club Marbella?

Thanks again!

I'm not sure if the taxis are right outside Club Marbella but they can definitely call you a taxi to take you up there. Got to say 2km uphill in the heat of a Spanish summer isn't something I'd do LOL! You didn't say when you are going, if its July or August, temperatures will be up in the high 30's and sometimes the 40's!

Hope you have a lovely holiday.
