I could only give the highest rating for this beautiful place. The room was cozy and clean, the host very friendly and helpful, as well as the staff. They serve a great breakfast and the place is within a easy and pleasant walk to The beach. I highly recommend staying here!

My husband and I stayed a Romantik Villa for two nights. We booked the suite because I read it had the best view and it certainly did. Lisa, the owner, met us and showed us around the beautiful property. The grounds are gorgeous, plenty of space to hide out or socialize. Lisa had lots of great suggestions for restaurants and...

This was a fantastic place to hide away for 8 days. It was quiet, relaxing and clean. Romantik Villa was such a beautiful spot my husband and felt like the we had the place to ourselves even though it was a bed and breakfast. This spot is above and beyond a B&B style. There are beautiful gardens on the property... More

We opted to visit Salema and stay here largely due to Rick Steves recommendation...we were not disappointed in either. We spent three nights here and were the only guests. Our room was average size with a double bed, decent size closet, table, two chairs and a bureau containing a wee fridge...it was nice and bright. Bathroom was large with tub... More

We were greeted by the host Lisa who offered us the suite at no extra charge, although we only booked a room, and we are delighted that she did! The view of the ocean from the bed is just wonderful and I would have gladly paid the slightly higher price for the privacy that the suite offered and the view... More

This is the most expensive place to stay in Salema, a town in Portugal that is highly recommended to visit by Rick Steves. The owner of this property, Lisa, was unwelcoming, critical of Americans, enforced a litany of rules, and was downright depressing to be around. If I had to do it again, I would just rent one of the... More

We arrived in Salema after quite a white knuckle cab ride from the train station and a rail journey from Lisbon. Our no nonsense host was just the trick to calm our nerves and make us feel right at home. If you're looking for a night at the Ritz keep moving along, but if your looking for a clean, comfortable...

My husband and I planned to stay 2 nights at the Romantik Villa - but ended up staying 3 and wished we had more time! Salema was our favorite place in the South and is a convenient location to do day trips to Lagos and other surrounding areas while having a quiet, peaceful place to retreat. We loved the little...

We stayed here (the only Rick Steves recommendation we have ever followed) and were incredibly disappointed. First, the value for what you get is simply not equal to all the other properties we encountered through three weeks in Portugal (wow, try the eCorkHotel). The room is small and uncomfortable, walls paper thin (we had a terrible night sleep since another... More

We originally booked for a two night stay at the Romantik Villa at the beginning of our trip to Portugal in September. We had a wonderful stay - the villa is beautiful set on the hill overlooking the water and lovely village of Salema - and the rooms were pleasant, well equipped and comfortable. Lisa was charming and incredibly helpful... More
