Overall impression was good, just a few things that meant it wasn’t perfect...the ‘WiFi’ Is so weak it’s non existent which was disappointing. There is no info pack, so it took us a few days to find the bins, didn’t know when the apartment would be cleaned (only once during the 2 week stay) and didn’t know stuff like you need to book tables at the restaurants etc. It sounds simple but would be helpful 😒�
from a self catering point of view we had to buy bin bags and toilet rolls which we’ve never had to do before - maybe we’ve just been lucky!
On a positive note the apartment is in a fab location, only seconds away from the beach and restaurants. The pool warms up in the afternoon so was great for the kids after a day at the lovely beach.
If we went again we’d be better prepared and it would be perfect!
In need of updating
Apartment in an ideal location for the beach. Lovely and clean but needs updating. Sofas really uncomfortable and outside furniture basic. Beach a minutes walk away. Salema is beautiful and relaxing, an ideal base if you can put up with the uncomfortable furniture. Hopefully the owners will update it for next year.
A lovely apartment with great location handy for the beach and restaurants. It was very hot for October (30+ degrees) but cool in the mornings and evenings. Not sure whether the apartment would be cool enough at night in summer without air con.
Apartamento perfecto..en pueblo tranquilo
El alojamiento está muy bien y está genial ubicado al lado de la playa.. El pueblo está muy bien tiene muy buenos restaurantes... Por poner alguna pega los colchones son algo incómodos... De muelles.. Sin duda volvería a repetir
Within 30 seconds walk of the wonderful, wide expanse of sandy Salema beach, which continues to operate as an active local fishing spot where sunbathers can watch the daily catch come in. There are many other lovely bays in close proximity including the excellent west coast surfers' paradise. Salema is blessed with some excellent and picturesque beach front restaurants and bars.
The nearest airport is Faro which is approximately a one hour drive from Salema. Car hire is advisable but there is also an hourly bus service from Salema into Lagos Town. Transfers to and from the airport are also available.
20 min drive to Lagos Town with shops, restaurants, bars, cafe, marina, markets, etc. (or local bus). Lagos is also a very historical town with lots to explore.
15 min drive to boat trips from Marina (fishing trips, snorkelling trip, adventure cruises, sunset cruises).
15 min drive to Cape St Vincent (most westerly point in Europe).
40 min drive to Water Parks, ZooMarine etc.
Salema enjoys more than its fair share of fabulous restaurants which consistently feature in Trip Advisor's top 10. The village has 2 small supermarkets providing essentials. There is also a larger supermarket within 5 minutes drive.
