“Lovely Guesthouse”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The Guesthouse is located on a lovely quiet street, 5 minutes walk to the shops and restaurants in Salema. The pool and garden area are stunning and the rooms spacious and comfortable. Lisa, the owner is great and although she can come across a little brusque at first, when we got to know her a little better we found her charming and with a great sense of humour. Lisa was absolutely spot on with every tip and suggestion she made regarding the best beaches and restaurants in the area- she really made our holiday special!

My husband and I stayed at the Romantik Villa in May. It was our first stop on our 10 day tour of Portugal. We can't say enough good things about Lisa and the Romantik Villa. We booked the suite which was wonderful - very spacious, quiet, and had an amazing view of the ocean! The grounds were simply beautiful and the pool was an added bonus. Lisa was an incredibly kind and gracious host and the town of Salema stole our hearts. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Algarve.

After 4 days in Lisbon, my husband and I arrived at the Romantik Villa in Salema with our 3 year-old daughter. We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful gardens surrounding the building, including a fabulous swimming pool. We reserved the suite, which included a sitting area and kitchen. The suite was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Lisa, the owner, was welcoming and kind to us throughout our stay. Wi-fi was not available in the suite, but we were able to use it if we went into the garden closer to the other rooms. Parking at the Romantik Villa was free and just outside the gate. The Romantik Villa was about a 10 minute walk from the beach and center of town, but we chose to drive because after a day at the beach, it was hard to get a 3 year old to walk up the hill! Parking was easy and free in the center of town. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the Algarve!

Only good things can be said about this delightful B&B situated in a residential walled garden atop a hill overlooking Salema - and a bit of the sea. Lisa and her husband take pride in presenting a welcoming environment with small, yet clean and comfortable rooms, lovingly tended gardens and a swimming pool (for those who can brave the chilly water). Breakfast is good and spent chatting with Lisa about the area. Her knowledge of it is better than any guide book; we tossed them and followed her suggestions, seeing more (and more interesting parts) of the Algarve than we had anticipated. She knows the local restaurants, too. Hospitality is at the heart of this place; the rooms are furnished not only with a fridge, but with the makings for coffee and tea for those early risers who can't wait for breakfast. Internet is available, but only sometimes and only in certain parts of the property, something that Lisa is working to fix.

Don't have too much to add over the other positive reviewers. Rooms were nicely appointed, and very clean. The grounds are beautiful and nicely maintained. Don't expect an expansive view of the ocean, but it is pretty. Lisa is a great hostess. She gives great advice on where to go based on what you are looking for. She is certainly a character which makes it even more enjoyable. Breakfast was a perfect event where we got to chat with the other guests and Lisa on the previous days events, where people ate and recommendations on the day ahead.

Internet was spotty so plan accordingly.

The Romantik Villa is the ideal place to stay and explore the Algarve. The rooms are wonderful, spacious and impecably clean, and the view over the pool onto the ocean is absolutely amazing. Lisa is a wonderful host that makes you feel welcome and offers great help and advice on everything from sightseeing to dinning out. The villa is a great location explore the charming town of Salema as well as other places along the cost. The Romantik Villa is certainly a place we will come back to.

We just returned from our trip to Portugal which we loved. We stayed 4 nights at Romantik Villa and loved our time there. Lisa was an amazing host, welcoming, accomodating and very entertaining! The property is gorgeous, rooms are small but the bathroom was large and nicely equipped. Beds are a bit firm for my taste. Breakfast was fabulous and Lisa provided us with wonderful tips for day trips.
Highly recommend!
