Airport Transport & General Transport


I'm staying at the Laguna Resort - Vilamoura hotel from the 18th May and I was wondering if anyone knows what's the best type of transport to get there from Faro International airport or would it be better to just take a taxi? Also, are the taxi prices pretty reasonable or not? Some people say it's better to just hire a car for the whole 6 days I'm staying.

If there is a bus/train would someone be able to let me know the transport numbers/prices.

On your own, I would book a shared shuttle ... around 9 euros to Vilamoura ... also for a couple. More than that,

a private transfer is around 30 euros ... taxi around 45 euros ... check the links on the top right of any page for transfer companies. I book through Travel Republic in the Uk ..

The Laguna Resort is about half an hour's flat walk or a 5 minute taxi ride from Vilamoura marina, which is pretty much the centre of things. You could easily get away without renting a car unless you were planning days out far afield.
