Post has never been delivered to your house as far as I know.

Unless it has to be signed for.

On A post is delivered to the Post Room.

Parcels sent by courier are delivered direct to your house.

Hi, we live on D sector and as Roland says, thete is no Correos postal delivery service, direct to your house, except for signed for items. The only post room is on A. For normal post delivered to the Correos, for sectorS B, C and D, you can either rent a post box (apartado), for about €70 per year and they put your post in the box. For larger items, they put a card in your box and you collect from the counter. If you don’t have a post box, you need to go to the counter, produce ID and they will check if there is anything for you. They only keep uncollected post for about two weeks. The Correos closes at 2.30pm each day.

Another option is to rent a post box at Best Wishes or Just Fabulous (shops on Camposol). Roughly the same price. You can order parcel delivery and they have longer opening hours than the Correos. 

You can also order online from companies such as Amazon and they will deliver directly to your house, using local delivery firms. We have found that works pretty well, though I have read that some folks have had problems with home deliveries.

Apologies for the long reply. Good luck

Welcome and good luck with your move. There are a few Facebook groups that you may find useful if you have any questions. Just type Camposol into Facebook and you can choose which ones to join. There is another good group called Preguntas y Mas. Among other things, they have a document with all useful telephone numbers that you can download. You just need to ignore the usual Facebook crap and you will be fine. Lots of people willing to help.

When I moved here a year ago I needed an address for my S1 to be sent to and was told that normal post is not delivered to your home address. I didn’t find out until too late that if you give your home postal address, it will go to the Correos office (by the Bull bar opposition garage on B) if you live on C B or D, and if you show your ID you can collect from there. True they only keep it for 2 weeks. So I paid about €70 for a PO Box at Best Wishes. Yes I got the S1, but since then, in a year, I’ve had 1 birthday card, 1 letter and 1 Xmas card. I know for a fact that lots more were sent which I never got. So I will not be giving them another €70 this year!!
