Salsalito
Ranked #2 of 4 Burgau B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 April 2013

We were recommended Salsalito by a discerning friend and our stay in Sante Fe, complete with its private terrace, exceeded all expectations. Owners Sally and Ralph, two of the most delightful people you could wish to meet, have created a tropical wonderland with a pool to match. The rooms are marvellously comfortable; the breakfasts, so beautifully served, equal those provided in many 4-5 star hotels we've stayed at. The honesty bar is a great innovation and the prices very reasonable, only 1 euro for a bottle of beer. We didn't cook in, though we could have – each room has its own individual fridge in the guest kitchen to keep food, the odd snack or carton of juice or milk. Burgau itself is pretty and interesting (but very hilly!) with a super beach and high surf. We enjoyed two fine meals in the village – one upmarket and expensive, the other less so, but both equally enjoyable. By the time our two days were up, Sally – she has a fund of fascinating and funny stories to tell – and Ralph had become friends for life. We'll be going back, for sure. We recommend it without hesitation.

Room Tip: Sante Fe is the top spot but all the rooms are fine.

Just arrived back from a wonderful break at the Salsalisto. I feel so relaxed and can't wait to go back
And I will be recommending this tranquil haven to all my friends and family.
You are made so welcome by Ralph and Sally. The gardens,terrace and pool area are just breath taking., The breakfast is delightful not your usual continental breakfast a magnificent spread of fresh fruit,cereals, yogurts,fresh breads, pastries etc etc.
The honesty bar is a great idea and very reasonably priced.(It was a shame not to take advantage of it!!!) The self catering option is also a nice touch there really is nothing to dislike!
Sally also arranged a full body massage with Justine which was the best I have ever had sensibly priced and added to the relaxation

We absolutely loved Salsalito!! It is stunning, full of character and to be quite honest, it is hard to put into words how amazing this place is! Sally is the perfect host. She made us feel so welcomed, we really felt at home in Salsalito.There are incredible outdoor surroundings with the option for barbecue and your own little kitchen for outdoor dinning. There are welcoming hammocks spread all around, not to mention the fabulous pool and poolside area. There is an honesty bar where you can relax with any drink you could possibly imagine!! (There is even an amateur guide to cocktail-making!). It was just perfect. Also, the village of Burgau is an excellent little retreat (off-the beaten track), the beach is gorgeous and only a 10-minute walk from the wonderful Salsalito. You won't be disappointed. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely. The Santa Fe is the biggest and in a self-contained area but to be quite frank...

Beautiful haven of peace and comfort. We had a week here in August. Sally is so hospitable and friendly. Breakfast on the veranda was gorgeous. The pool and gardens are perfect, very comfortable sun beds and excellent kitchen available if required. Fabulous restaurants within 10 minute walk. Car is not essential.
We had the Sintra room which was lovely.
The honesty bar is brilliant and very fairly priced.
Would highly recommend this accommodation.

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
