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

We stayed for one night at the end of August. The bad first: Firstly, parking is a huge problem, there is only one beach in this town, so parking is not easy to find. Secondly, our welcome was also not very friendly. Thirdly, the room - very old, dated, the air conditioning did not work and at night with the... More

The proximity to the beach is great! The staff is lovely. But, the hotel is very tired and wasn't a grand hotel to start with. The room's bathroom was tiny and had a small shower stall with a plastic curtain, no place to put soap etc. The A/C was not very effective. The TV was tiny and perched on the... More

A 3 star hotel with the best location in Salema! We didn't have a booking but were lucky to get 2 rooms for 2 nights. Reception very friendly, rooms are a bit dated but clean, not a big hotel, all the rooms have small balconies with a sea view. 2 minute walk to a lovely beach, nice restaurants in walking... More

We spent two weeks at Hotel Residential and loved every second. All the staff are extremely friendly - not a forced friendliness that you often experience on holiday, a natural and genuine friendliness. If you want a comfortable, clean and affordable hotel, with great staff, then this is the place to stay. If you want luxurious bathrooms and modern decor,... More
