Unless your idea of a good (no stress) holiday is being constantly pestered by pushy forceful locals then I advise you to keep away from the town of Sal Rei.
It's important to remember that this is a 3rd World Country where the people have no money and no food - they're desperate. So if you do insist on going I would advise that you only go in daylight hours, go with at least one other person, don't wear anything like watches, jewellery have your wallet on show etc.
Definitely don't go between 1pm and 3pm as this is their Ciesta and the offical shops won't be open and there's no escape from the relentless locals. At least when they're open you can dive in if you're feeling the pressure too much.
Whilst we were there it was the presidential election and there was considerable political unrest which made it a pretty scary place to be. (Last week).
Our hotel (Riu) had armed guards at the exits throughout the duration of our stay! We thought the reps should've mentioned this to us but they're only concerned with hocking you overpriced excursions which when you look in to it aren't actually that good...and certainly not value for money!
