This was a great value: Our room (#2) had twin comfortable beds - a second ante-room had self serve coffee/tea options and a refrigerator with glass ware, cutting board and a knife. It was fresh and clean --- slept with windows open to hear the surf. Breakfast had more options than most, with freshly squeezed oranges, meats, cheeses, various breads,... More

Bettina is attentive and friendly... when there was a mechanical issue in our room, she moved us to another room with a balcony. Views overlooking Salema are lovely. Rooms are small but immaculately kept, bed was comfy, a/c worked well. Breakfast was included and was a typical continental spread of cold cuts, cheeses, and breads. Fresh juice was tasty. However,... More

We loved our stay at Pension Mare! Bettina was gracious and helpful. The location cannot be beat--a short walk to a STUNNING beach. Our room, while not glamorous, was clean and lovely. The bed was great, water pressure for shower perfect. Breakfast was typical--breads, meats. fresh fruits. Bettina makes fresh juice everyday; that was a nice touch. Salema was a... More

Rooms cleaned every day which was a treat from our other hostel stays in Portugal. ++close to the beach with lovely views. Thought it was a great value spot & wonderful resting place... More

We had such a great time in Salema. We could have stayed for ten days instead of four. We had room #4, a smaller room with double bed and private patio that is big enough to sit on but most important, no one else has access to it. The room has A/C (unused, it was cool at night) and of... More

A Mare B&B in Salema was the perfect cure for life's stresses. Our apartment C was comfortable, quiet, clean, and convenient. The Wi-Fi was fine, the bathroom was spacious, the balcony had a view of the ocean, and Bettina was helpful with arranging laundry needs and making restaurant recommendations. My friend was a bit put-off by the too-firm mattress, but... More

This B & B is situated on the hill just above Salema. This means there are spectacular views from most rooms. However, be aware, this means luggage needs to be carried a significant distance up numerous steps. Our room had all that was necessary for a comfortable stay. We would have appreciated bigger duvets as they only just covered the... More
