Salsalito is a beautiful oasis that has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Sally was a perfect host who helped make our honeymoon everything we wanted it to be. There is little doubt that we will be returning in the near future.

This is a must for every discerning traveller. It is beautifully appointed and close to all amenities. Even in wintertime this place is a joy with it's enormous logfire.
All the best to the owners Sally & Ralph

Other reviews are very fair. Great place for couples to enjoy a quiet, laid back time. Not really a place for kids unless they are older and enjoy lazing with a book by the pool.
The kitchen area and fridge for each room gives you the flexibility on days when you don't want to eat out, combined with the service of a good breakfast each day and a maid service.

Burgau, which is easily walkable, has a good selection of simple restaurants although you won't hear much other than English spoken. We stayed two weeks which is perhaps a tiny bit too long in an area which is not exactly peppered with places to visit, but the beaches of Sagres and the hills around Monchique are within easy reach.

Room Tip: Santa Fe is larger than the others and has its own sitting area.

We arrived in Salsalito utterly exhausted from too much work and not enough play and it was PERFECT. Comfortable, clean and cool bedroom (Bamboo) with air conditioning, good bathroom and shower...beautiful pool, great temperature and lovely shallow sloping entry for dipping feet into, incredible honesty bar stashed full of tempting beverages - when I said to Sally that I had emptied the fridge of my favourite wine, she promptly restocked! Great kitchen with private cupboard and fridge. Beautiful grounds with incredible trees, all planted by Ralph, and hammocks strung up in the shade of palm trees. Very comfortable sun beds by pool, made by Ralph - amazing. Lots of lilos if you fancy floating while you read. Lots of different areas to sit and relax - lovely tables, big and small, so you can always find an area to sit alone and relax quietly. Gazebo with super comfortable armchairs that seem to hug you. Lovely cleaning lady/maid/general helper to Sally - she prepared a gorgeous breakfast every morning - fresh fruits, cereals, breads, pastries, ham and cheeses...tea, coffee, fresh fruit juice...
Sally was super-obliging - so welcoming and friendly, booking restaurants, giving helpful tips, providing strapping for a broken toe...and she was very excited when we revealed that we had just got engaged! We did not want to leave.
We can't recommend Salsalito enough!

An absolutely beautiful place to stay! Our welcome could not have been friendlier. The poolside area and surrounding gardens are incredible and it feels like a chore to leave! Our room was very comfortable and each has its own allocated fridge (for your lunch/bbq supplies) in the well appointed kitchen area behind the pool. Coupled with a very nicely priced honesty bar this means even less reason to venture out away from the relaxation! That said we did find burgau a very nice village and the beach and waters are clean and very pretty. The restaurants were all very well priced, friendly and had good food.

This was one of our favourite places to stay and I would highly recommend it! Like many other guests, including the ones we met this trip, we will be returning for sure.

2 fantastic hosts ~ Sally & Ralph whose home this is, make you feel SO welcome and part of their own family. A delightful place to stay and relax at. Only a short walk, or even shorter drive from the lovely town of Burgau, where one can continue eating or relaxing on the local beach. Whilst doing the latter, I would suggest visiting The Beach Bar for a break from sunbathing to sample the menu. I can highly recommend the sardines. At Salsalito, you have your own fridge so you can cook your own food on the BBQ whilst mixing your own cocktails from the amazingly well stocked bar ... Just be honest & write what you've had.
Overall ..... One of the best places we've stayed at

Room Tip: Any of them.... they're all delightful.

Salsalito is a small, luxurious and peaceful haven just 10 minutes walk from delightful Burgau. The village has a range of good restaurants and a great beach if you ever tire of the heavenly Salsalito pool. The stunning West Coast beaches and National Parks are within easy driving distance, as are many 'must see' towns like Silves, Manchique and Lagos. At Salsalito, you will find all the local knowledge if you need help, as well as clean and comfortable rooms, proper sunbeds and a well appointed kitchen and bbq area if you feel like self-catering. Hosts Sally and Ralph have thought of everything and finished Salsalito a high standard. We'll be back.
