We got to Salem "by accident" and the small, nice town made us think about staying a night. From the beach we saw this perfectly located small B&B and checked it on TA. They had a room and we were immediately taken by the friendly welcome. We could see all the rooms and all had their charme. We took a... More

We reserved Apartment B for a long weekend. Bettina was very helpful and the accommodation was everything we expected. It was spotlessly clean and had a beautiful view of the town and the ocean from the terrace. It was very private and the quiet slow pace of Salema was just what we were looking for. Our visit in February was... More

Stayed 2 nights in May 2014. (E72/nt) Room was smallish, but clean. A v.short walk to the beach and neat restaurants. The breakfast 'room' was fantastic - bright and airy with a great view, and a wonderful breakfast. Had a great dinner at the Boia Rest. on the water with a view. Would stay again.

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
