Just returned. Fantastic location with good views, great pool, great beach. Good value for money. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you. Lovely fishing village where the locals are actually pleased to see you. Just a short hop to the cash & carry or to Lagos town, but there are some excellent restaurants in the village... More

My partner and I came to Salema at the end of April. We stayed in one of the beach villas as he always stayed there as a child and had the best summer holidays. Upon our arrival we had a short wait for someone to arrive at the reception this wasn't manned 24 hours but not sure if this was... More

We stayed here for five nights in May/June and had a great time. We'd had a studio which was OK - the bed wasn't great and the hot water didn't last long enough - but it was very cheap. Kitchen facilities are good and the pool area is great. Fabulous location - just a few minutes to the beach and... More

Despite the need for a few touch-ups here and there, the beach club is a hidden gem in what I believe is one of the most beautiful villages in the Western Algarve. Virtually untainted by tourists, the beach club's views over Salema are stunning, and although it may not be modernised and newly-furnished, it retains that quaint Portuguese-style living. If...

We’ve stayed at a 2 bedrooms apartment (twin rooms), there’s a sofa at the living room where 2 more people can sleep. The apartment needs upgrading. The kitchen was well equipped, fridge freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster, also good table ware. The pool area is nice and no issue with sunbeds. The property itself is in need of a facelift...

We were disappointed with our stay at the Salema Beach Club. It appears that this property was once a hopping place. It looked like there was once a bar and restaurant on the property and a few shops, but now everything is deserted. The pool area needs maintenance and many of the palm trees around the pool were dead. The... More

We stayed here for the second time in August 2011 and overall enjoyed the experience.The staff are very friendly and helpful. However it is pretty run down and in need of a facelift virtually everywhere. I know the economy is bad here but there are a number of shops linked to this complex which are closed adding up to a...

We have holidayed in this area several times and booked Salema as it is relatively unspoilt by tourism and has kept its traditions as a Portuguese fishing village. We booked Salema Beach Club through Owners Abroad. Having checked it out on Trip Advisor we considered it adequate for our needs. We booked a one bed apartment but it did sleep... More

This complex of apartments is set up a hill from the small and rather quaint village of Salema. The walk up the hill may be a bit steep, but the reward is the sea views from many of the apartments. Built in the 80s, the complex consists of a series of self-catering apartments. Most face the pool, and most of... More
