Resort hopper or taxi.

Going to Alvor in April and was wondering how long does it take by resort hopper, or is it better to pay the extra and get a taxi, thanks.

Getting a shared transfer is hit or miss. You could be lucky and get to Alvor in about an hour; you could be unlucky and take two hours or more. A taxi should get you there in around 50/55 minutes.

If you're travelling alone, it might be worth risking the delay for the potential saving in cost, provided your flight gets in reasonably early. For two or more people, it's less clearcut.

I dont know if you fancy hiring a car but in April you can get a car for 12 days for the same price as a private transfer . You then have the convenience of having a car at your disposal without any real extra cost .

Hi thanks for the fast replies,i dont want to hire a car i have recently had serious operation so i just want to chill. Only going for four nights and our flights arrive and depart Faro at 9am, so will probably get a private transfer.

A private transfer should take no more than an hour, door to door. A resorthoppa type trip can easily take twice as long, not the best way be chillin'

We had a bad experience with Resort Hoppa in Albufeira.
