Hotel Balaia Atlantico

Could anyone please tell me how far away from the Old Town and The strip the above hotel is. Also is there a steakhouse called Pharnells closeby.

Thanks

Balaia Atlantico is well over 2 miles from the old town, it's almost in open countryside. No buses there either, so it's a taxi or a very long walk indeed.

Sorry I don't know the answer to the second question.

Farnels restaurant is situated just off The Strip (New Town) on Rua Almeida Garrett which is the street that runs down the side of the Hotel Da Aldeia, so approx 3 kms from the Balaia Atlantico.

Re a return from Balaia Atlantico to Faro you would be better pre booking a private transfer it will be cheaper, try yellowfiishtranfers.com The taxis from outside the airport (and also the taxis in Albufeira for return to airport ) are expensive so don't use them, you will pay as much for one way as you would for a return with yellowfish

Here is the website of the main taxi office in Albufeira, click on your hotel lower down the page and it will show you a page with prices for certain destinations in and around the resort.
