We have just returned from our second visit to this wonderful quiet and clean complex in the amazing fishing village that is Salema. Our villa was in an amazing location andthe view was just breathtaking, I believe all the villas have similar views too. The pool never seems crowded or loud and there is certainly NO need to go out... More

Peacefull place, nice pool. Clean and safe. Smell of mold on the lower floor. Beautifull view. Easy but steep walk to the city beach. Take the path behind the resort and walk to secret beaches. Sleepy beach town with ca 5-10 restaurants. We rented through airbnb.

We rented a two-bedroom for one night. They put us in a unit that hadn't been used for a long time. The air, the furniture, and the linens smelled like mold. The TV in the unit did not work and when we asked, at the front desk for maintenance to fix it, they told us that it was not possible.... More

We booked this through Owners Direct and came here as a family mid May 2014. We were stunned at how fantastic this accommodation is. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, with another toilet on the first floor. There is a balcony off the bedrooms on the ground floor, another furnished balcony off the living room on the first floor, and... More

Just back from an wonderful stay in Salema. We've been once before and loved the old fashioned feel of the village, just like stepping back in time to Cornwall 30 years ago but with heat and sunshine. We haven't stayed at the View before, but felt compelled to write about how lovely this complex is. Its a private development. We... More

Our second trip here, peak season this time. !We have 2 children aged 12 and 15 who enjoyed it too, especially the wi-fi in the pubs!! Busier but still peaceful and tranquil, everything just as it was last year. Fantastic accomodation, immaculate pool and gardens. Again no restaurant open on site. Village remains smart with great restaurants and only 2... More

We stayed in L11 which was just as described, an amazing view and a really beautifully laid out and equipped house. The owner had provided a list of good places to go with the family by email before we went and these turned out to be so useful as we had never been to Salema before. Must say all good... More

We've now stayed at the View 2 or 3 times and love it, not just because the accommodation is such excellent quality, but because the resort, Salema, is our idea of what a Portuguese holiday should be all about - sleepy fishing village with amazing beaches and cliff top walks a bit reminiscent of Cornwall. As it's in the National... More
