“Beautiful place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2010

As the name implies is a romantic place. The owners, Lisa and her husband Jost, welcome their guests warmly, making them feel at home for an unforgettable holiday!

After 2006 and 2008 last month it was the third time my girlfriend and me stayed at Romantik Villa in Salema. Every of our holidays there was so terrific that we stayed for two or even for three weeks!
The rooms are very clean and friendly arranged. The breakfast is balanced and much better than the usual continental breakfast, especially the coffee. But one's for sure:
the most incredible attraction is the garden. The grass and all the trees are well trimmed. There are a lot of small places you can use to relax: under a palm tree in a hammock on the pool in an outdoor lounge surrounded by bonsai trees or on a sunbed at a gallery among olive and lemon trees with a view over the whole garden and above you can see the ocean - wonderful!
We can recommend the Romantik Villa now like years ago. The oweners Lisa and Jost are very communicative (Lisa is multi-lingual) and helpful too. If you have any question about restaurants in this location or something else concerning the Algarve don't hesitate to ask, they will give you good advices.
Finally it was again a fabulous holiday and I think it was not our last there...

I had read about this bed and breakfast in a guide book and it appeared to be ideal for our first two nights on the Algarve. However, the management was not up to what I encountered the rest of our stay in the Algarve. Breakfast was not until 9.30am, and not a minute before, and we could not have any coffee before then - when asked if there was any ice we were told that there was none in the house, and worst of all the front gate was locked going in and out as if we were in a fortress! Overall a very disappointing management and one I would not recommend.

My wife Fazilet & I spent 10 days at Romantik Villa, and we felt as if we were in our own millionaire holiday home. The garden is idyllic with gorgeous flowering shrubs and shady trees, the pool inviting, clean and warm, the rooms are tastefully furnished and clean, with a huge bathroom and fluffy white towels. The Brazilian owner, Lisa from Brazil, serves delicious, imaginative, unhurried breakfasts in person on a shaded terrace, and is chatty and friendly in lots of languages. Oh, and Lisa's friendly Golden Labrador just wants you to love him. We strongly recommend Romantik Villa.

We have just returned from our second visit to Romantik Villa and we enjoyed it just as much as we did the first time.

The rooms, garden and pool are all extremely clean and beautifully maintained and breakfasts are generous and delicious ( I love Lisa's museli!)

Salema is a really lovely little fishing village which hasn't been spoilt by big hotels. The beach is beautiful and there's a great selection of restaurants to choose from.

Lisa is a wonderful host and we really enjoyed seeing her again. If you're thinking about visiting Portugal I would highly recommend that you stay with Lisa & Jost at Romantik Villa.. it's perfect!

If you're willing to sacrifice beach-side location for a great view of the water, this is a great place to do it. While still within a 5 minute walk of the water, the villa is up a very steep hill. If you don't have a problem with that, or if you have a car, it's not an issue.

The room is nice, and the grounds are beautiful. The landscaping, the pool... everything is relaxing and well maintained. There are a few dogs running around, but they are very friendly.

Breakfast was 15-20 minutes late every morning, but we weren't in too much of a hurry. The host was very entertaining, but had a big personality. We found this amusing and we really enjoyed her company, but if you want your host to be in the background, this may not be the place for you. She was nothing but kind to us though (once we proved we had good table manners), and even gave us a ride to the ATM in town to get cash to pay for our stay. If you're a laid back person, you'll love her eccentricity.

Again, a beautiful place with clean rooms, a filling breakfast, and a reasonable price. Definitely a more fun and interesting experience than staying in a more typical hotel room.
