Loved every minute. Huge condo, both bedrooms had ensuites and there was a powder room on the main floor. Two balconies on the main floor and a roof top terrace as well. Location was excellent and Salema itself was a wonderful beach town with great food.

We booked the view after doing a lot of research. We wanted to avoid the crowds and tourist traps of the bigger resorts in the algarve. We loved Salema with its super beach and great restaurants. Nothing tacky. We also went to Burgau, Luz, Lagos, Sagres and Alvor, which if you have a car are easily accessible for a day...

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....

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...

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
