You can't ask for a better location - 30 seconds to walk to the beach, around the corner from the bus stop, a 2-minute walk to every restaurant in town (not that the town's very big). Room was great - had a balcony, small bathroom, air conditioning!, and a little TV. Breakfast was included and was delicious and fresh every... More

Hotel Residencial Salema made for a very comfortable spot for our time in Salema. Highlights of the hotel include great location right in the center of town and very near the beach, the view from our balcony out to the beach, a wonderful breakfast and a fun little bar on the ground level. The rooms were fine - nothing spectacular,... More

Stayed here for 3 nights straight from Los Angeles to unwind and adjust to time change. The hotel is an ok place to stay, nothing fancy. View though is very nice right from the balcony. Beach is few yards away, bus station is just around the corner. This is good base if you want to visit Sagres and Lagos for... More

We just stayed at the hotel for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there and in Salema in General. The hotel is by no means fancy but it is clean, comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. I Would definitely recommend!

A friend and I were traveling though the Algarve after a conference, and found the town of Salema to be a perfect fit for what we wanted in a beach town. The Hotel Salema was also a great fit. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were very filling you just had to wait until the... More

This hotel is nothing fancy, but a nice spot for a great beach in Portugal. We were there in mid-June, so there were not a ton of people, but that was perfect for us. The staff was great and we met some great folks at the bar in the lobby. Rooms are clean, and we had a nice balcony that... More

We stayed 4 nights in September at the Hotel Residencial Salema. It's location right on the beach could not be beat. The hotel rooms are modest, each with a balcony facing the beach. The rooms are typically as most hotels in Europe compact but, our room was more than adequate. Our number 1 priority is always hotel cleanliness and it... More

Salema is very quiet with only two bars and a handful of restaurants. Great if that's your thing and is a world away from garish albuefueria. It's the only hotel in salema, it's dated and basic but good value for money. You can walk from one end to the other in 5 minutes Room was ok great sea view. Large... More

Clean, no frills hotel thats perfect for a quiet beach getaway in this charming little town. It's far away from the noise of Lagos, and close to all the restaurants and bars in town. The owners are really nice and very helpful.

A friend and I stayed here for a few nights. Great location as it is steps away from the beach. It's true the hotel is a bit dated but it is extremely clean and the staff are very friendly. Each room has a balcony allowing for a place to dry swimsuits and to sit while the sun goes down. We... More
