Hop in a cab across to the San Fernando area just a few mins/euros away. Lots of shopping options across there, get the taxi driver to pick you back up later or get another with all your shopping there's plenty of them about the area !!!!!!

But no Lidl/Aldi. However you will find a Mercadona which is just as good, if not better. We have all three within a short car ride of us and usually use Mercadona for preference.

Also in San Fernando is a Spar hypermarket and a Hiperdino, this usually empty which really rather comments accurately on the relative merits.

Maspalomas/San Fernando market are one and the same and is held on Wed and Sat morning from around 9a.m.> 2p.m. It's not far to walk to from the Sonnenland area.

Lidl supermarket will be opening a new store in San Fernando, Maspalomas on 16th February. The low cost supermarket is being built on the waste land at the back of the Euro Center and Police Station in San Fernando.

So, it should be there when you come over in August

It was certainly open in April and they usually last longer than a few months!

Was also open in June got a couple of really nice reasonably priced sunbeds and the layout was almost identical to any of the UK ones we had been in

I would add that they do not have the reputation in Spain that they have in England where friends are horrified they know someone who shops in one! Even so we have more or less stopped using the one locally because we think the price/quality ratio with Mercadona is in Mercadona's favour. Certainly for a general holiday shop we would go to Mercadona.
