About the property

Salema Beach Club is a popular small holiday complex built around a large communal swimming pool. The complex has, in addition to the large shared pool, a small shop and bar/cafe. There is also a fully staffed Reception Office. All services are very family friendly. Salema village itself is a picturesque and small fishing village, with a beautiful long sandy beach.

About John & Christina Willis

I am 69, semi-retired but working and a freelance flying instructor, and live in Biggin Hill, just south of London. I am married to Christina, who jointly owns the property with me, and we have two daughters, ages 29 and 19. I also have a married daughter aged 38.

John & Christina Willis purchased this apartment in 2005

Why John & Christina Willis chose Salema

I had been coming to the Salema Beach Club since the early 80's, and all three children have learned to swim in the pool in the complex. I bought a timeshare in the complex some 24 years ago, so Salema is very much a second home for myself and my family. On selling my businesses in 2005, I satisfied a major ambition, and bought the three bedroom apartment for our family enjoyment into my retirement.

All our friends that I have introduced to Salema have also fallen in love with it, and many return year after year with their families.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped and the location was superb. Literally 4 mins from the beach with everything we needed and the swimming pool and sun loungers on site were well provided. Local staff very helpful and Palmeries cafe/market was always on hand for that refreshing drink or maybe a few bread rolls! Love the place.

Fantstic apartment great location

  • 4 of 5

We have used this apartment at least twice and have already booked it for 2016. First stayed in Salema in the 1980's and it has not changed much . If you want a quite holiday and no noise then this is the place. Fantastic beach and the apartment is only 5 mins from the onsite outdoor pool. There are no noisy bars but there are some beautiful restaurants. There is also a small cafe/snack bar 2 mins from the apartment and it is run by a lovely woman named Martha.The women on reception are very helpfull to. The only downside ,and it isn't If you you are reasonably fit, is there is a hill for about 50 meters back up to the complex. But do not let that put you off.If you want a holiday doing nothing then this is the best place to come to. I have been to Portugal about 40-50 times and for peace and tranquillity there is no better place. Looking forward to the holiday in June and for many more to come. Thank you John and Christina for this beautiful gem.

SALEMA ist SPITZE!

  • 5 of 5

Danke Familie Willis für den easy Aufenthalt in ihrem schönen Apartment! Wir haben alles gefunden und bekommen was wir gebraucht haben und konnten entspannt unseren Urlaub geniessen. Natürlich ist die Anlage schon etwas älter und somit auch das Publikum ; ) aber das war vollkommen in Ordnung für uns und hat alledem keinen Abbruch getan! Gerne kommen wir wieder! Danke und bis dann!

DANKE! Einfach aber sauber und gut gelegen....gut für Familien in der Vorsaison! SALEMA ist SPITZE!!

  • 5 of 5

Die Unterkunft war sehr einfach einfach aber zweckmäßig eingerichtet, alles sauber und gepflegt und das Personal im Beach Club sehr hilfsbereit!

Die Vermieter des Apartments waren sehr bemüht und freundlich alle Fragen zu beantworten und die Anreise und den Aufenthalt so easy wie möglich zu gestalten!

Das Apartment selbst war sehr einfach aber zweckmäßig eingerichtet, alles sauber und gepflegt. Alles da was man so braucht, sogar Handtücher für den Strand waren in ausreichender Menge vorhanden!

Die Anlage liegt auf einem Hügel in Salema und hat schon bessere Tage gesehen, ist aber für den Preis voll in Ordnung!

Meist ältere Engländer sind in der Anlage (wir waren in der Vorsaison, Anfang Mai da) anzutreffen, der Pool war meist leer und so war Freiheit angesagt!

Es gibt auch einen Supermarkt im Beach Club, dort sollte man aber nur Brot holen, der rest ist überteuert und in Salema selbst gibts den Tollen Salema Market!

Alles in Allem ein toller entspannter Urlaub!

Salema ist SPITZE!

: )

Herzlichen Dank an die Familie Willis für den freundlichen Kontakt!
