My wife and daughter recently spent two enjoyable nights at Romantik Villa in Salema in June 2013. We had researched staying there based on a nice write-up of Salema and Romantik Villa in Rick Steves book on Portugal. A beautiful manicured property with very nice, clean and comfortable rooms with a nice view of the Atlantic. Good value, but no credit cards accepted. Also, it was a bit challenging finding the property in our rented car. As previous reviewers said, owner Lisa was very helpful in pointing out the best local restaurants and beautiful nearby beaches that are off the beaten path. Definitely worth a stay at the Romantik Villa when visiting the Algarve.

We've just returned from our third trip to Romantik Villa, which we previously visited in 2008 and 2010. I'm delighted to say that nothing has changed and it's just as perfect as it was the last time we came. Salema is such a great spot, with a lovely beach and a handful of wonderful restaurants. It was great to see Lisa again; to sample her delicious breakfasts and to catch up on the last few years. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Romantik Villa to anyone who wants a peaceful and relaxing holiday in a beautiful and unspoilt location. It really is a hidden gem :-)

Our stay at Romantik Villa was a highlight of a wonderful time in Portugal. We agree with previous reviews praising the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms [and spacious bathrooms], beautiful location and lovely gardens with comfortable lounging areas poolside, in the cozy cabana or the upper garden with views of the ocean. Lisa is a vivacious host who delivers a story with the wit, expression and timing of a professional standup comedian. If some enterprising individual could tape her stuff she would be a YouTube overnight sensation. She is just a peach and serves a hearty breakfast to boot. We are beach rats and Lisa knows all the local sites including the best beaches to visit heading north from Vila do Bispo. For those planning a trip in the near future we understand there may be availability in August.

We stayed 3 nights at this place recently. Lisa, the land lady, is very informative, quadlingual (English, French, German, Portugese) and is very helpful in suggesting good beaches to visit, The place is extermely well manicured, nice plants and trees, good pool. Pric eis reasonable. I enjoyed walking from this place to the restaturents down hill back and forth. Salema has nice restaurents and some o fthe nearbye towns (or villages) are nice to visit. I highly recommend this place.

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!
