We stayed in aparament C & my kids stayed in the room next door. We had plenty of room even in the aparmtent. Both places were... More

My wife and I traveled to salema, per the reviews we read on TA. What a beautiful location, lovely host as well. Bettina was helpful throughout. We stayed in room 1. Plenty of space for two. There is a second room which has a small refrigerator. We used this room to store our belongings. Great breakfast, great location, lovely host... 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

We just spent three nights at A Mare. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We loved our outdoor terrace. Bettina is great. She recommended two restaurants and both were delicious. A Mare is in a good location. You can be on that wonderful Salema sand in a minute or two. We were very happy with everything and would stay there... More

Overall, we really enjoyed this B&B. Bettina was absolutely fabulous in helping us with whatever we needed, or any questions we had. We stayed in room #1 and we found it very comfortable and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the sleep quality was very good. However if you are a light sleeper, just know that at around 7am... More

In my opinion, this place has it all. Painted blue and white and perched on a steep hillside, it is reminiscent of the Greek Islands. Be prepared to climb some stairs. No two rooms are alike but probably all have magnificent views of the sea. There are lots of patios for sitting plus the dining room can be enjoyed on... More

'A Mare' is very much like Salema itself, compact, friendly, quiet, simple, comfortable oh and steep!! Located up a flight of steps just back from the beach it offers a great view of the coast. The room was compact but comfortable with good wifi and an excellent bed, although the fridge was a little noisy. Breakfast was excellent with fresh... More
