Spent a week here with my husband and 11 month old. Could not fault the villa, huge and beautifully finished with a big balcony (with a BBQ) and sun terrace. Kitchen well equipped, including a dishwasher and washing machine, lots of TV channels (we were visiting during Wimbledon and Euro 2016!) and very effective aircon. Villa was cleaned a couple...

Two couples shared Villa H8. The booking and pre-arrival correspondence was efficient. The advice to park below the Villa and access it by the steps is misguided because it is a hard task carrying luggage up more than 65 stairs! We found it much easier to park above or level with the Villa and walk a longer but flat path.... More

Superb apartment (we hired C3 via Owner's Direct, via Roma Travel) Directions and booking info was a bit scanty and the Villa (which was in the process of transferring owners) was also scant on basics like cleaning stuff and lightbulbs (several had already gone including the one on the balcony), but was superbly furnished, lovely big rooms, so much more...

Our villa was, well awesome, it came with four bedrooms, split on two floors, with Jacuzzi, sauna and spa bath. To cap it it had a garden and great balcony looking over Salema none of this was mentioned in the details so we had quite a nice shock. Salema is just the ticket for a hard working family, great fishing... More

A lovely old fashioned resort with day beds for hire on the beach, it was great to feel that life had slowed down . Nice places to eat in the village and The View aptly describes it - guaranteed to induce calm! The complex is quiet, well maintained and has a nice feel to it.

We have just stayed in G16 for a winter break. Great location, wonderful views of the beach. A few restaurants and shops open in Salema village Beautiful warm weather, windy at times. Just be aware it's a very steep hill to walk up to the complex

We stayed in villa F6 (booked through Owners Direst) in August 2014 with our 2 children who are 10 and 7. I found booking the villa and all communications with the owner really easy and they were very efficient and helpful. We had a problem with the TV and wifi when we arrived and it was dealt with impressive speed... More

We have just returned from our second visit to this wonderful quiet and clean complex in the amazing fishing village that is Salema. Our villa was in an amazing location andthe view was just breathtaking, I believe all the villas have similar views too. The pool never seems crowded or loud and there is certainly NO need to go out... More

Peacefull place, nice pool. Clean and safe. Smell of mold on the lower floor. Beautifull view. Easy but steep walk to the city beach. Take the path behind the resort and walk to secret beaches. Sleepy beach town with ca 5-10 restaurants. We rented through airbnb.

We rented a two-bedroom for one night. They put us in a unit that hadn't been used for a long time. The air, the furniture, and the linens smelled like mold. The TV in the unit did not work and when we asked, at the front desk for maintenance to fix it, they told us that it was not possible.... More
