first timers to Salou, info please!

Hi Guys

Ive looked at all the info on here and have some questions I hope you can answer. First timers to Salou, we are a family of five and our kids ages are from 21 yrs to 10. we have rented a villa at the following location: avinguda vilafortuny. Can someone please advise me of a good transfer company not too expensive? Ive looked and it seems to be 120 euro return? does this sound right?

Also we will arrive quite late, 22.00 hrs and the rental company tells me there is no supermarket open, and when I requested some basics to be left in the villa, bread, milk etc, they refused, saying they dont offer this service. They said there is a mc donalds nearby but I dont even know if this will be open? All we want is a nice cup of tea after travelling and something very light to eat until the next morning when we can find a supermarket nearby, if you can recommend one I would be most grateful.The rental company have also just told me that because we are arriving late we have to pay a fee of 70 euros, which I wasnt expecting. Once we settle in, whats around and about in terms of eateries etc? Thanks in advance.

Don't worry about arriving at that time, as there is always something open somewhere. Remember the Spanish don't usually eat until around that time, so just enjoy.

Carmel as a first timer to salou you will be impressed with what salou has to offer so enjoy, and maybe give us feedback on how your holiday went. You will probably return next year and become a regular on here lol.
