Default Food Shopping when we arrive

Hi

First time posting and first time traveller to Mallorca.

We are arriving over on a saturday in sept - flight arrives at 7.30pm. We are renting a car and heading up to Pollensa - staying in Collet Gornals Villa - Just outside Pollensa.

By the time we check out and get the cars, and the fact we will be taking it easy as we're not used to left hand drives, it's going to be about 8.30ish - Any suggestions were we might be able to make a quick stop to get the essentials to tide us over till the next day.

We will have 5 kids and 4 adults - so we need to have something to feed them!!!

Thanks for the help.

Jinky

You may find that it will be best to stop at Al Campo which is a hypermarket size shop about 15mins from the airport but is open until 10pm. You could do a good shop there if you have the room in the car.

I agree with Lollipop, the supermarkets here close at 9pm and you would be cutting it fine to get here on time.
Have you asked about a welcome pack some owners/agents do offer this facility?.

We always shop at Carrefour which is the nearest to the airport. Both Carrefour & Alcampo are listed in our directions - see puertopollensa.com/Arriving.html#bycar

I agree with Sparky and Pollensa - either Carrefour or Campo are great and we have used them on the way from the airport. But would add a word of warning - make sure you leave someone in the car! There have been reports of car break-ins at these places - I think the thieves target cars with luggage on view etc

We are always very careful to sort & hide our luggage at the airport before leaving & getting our bags & purses (with Euros, Credit Cards & passports) ready so that we don't need to open the boot when we stop at Carrefour.
