A Mare B&B in Salema was the perfect cure for life's stresses. Our apartment C was comfortable, quiet, clean, and convenient. The Wi-Fi was fine, the bathroom was spacious, the balcony had a view of the ocean, and Bettina was helpful with arranging laundry needs and making restaurant recommendations. My friend was a bit put-off by the too-firm mattress, but...

This B & B is situated on the hill just above Salema. This means there are spectacular views from most rooms. However, be aware, this means luggage needs to be carried a significant distance up numerous steps. Our room had all that was necessary for a comfortable stay. We would have appreciated bigger duvets as they only just covered the...

We just spent three nights at A Mare. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We loved our outdoor terrace. Bettina is great. She recommended two restaurants and both were delicious. A Mare is in a good location. You can be on that wonderful Salema sand in a minute or two. We were very happy with everything and would stay there...

Overall, we really enjoyed this B&B. Bettina was absolutely fabulous in helping us with whatever we needed, or any questions we had. We stayed in room #1 and we found it very comfortable and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the sleep quality was very good. However if you are a light sleeper, just know that at around 7am...

In my opinion, this place has it all. Painted blue and white and perched on a steep hillside, it is reminiscent of the Greek Islands. Be prepared to climb some stairs. No two rooms are alike but probably all have magnificent views of the sea. There are lots of patios for sitting plus the dining room can be enjoyed on...

'A Mare' is very much like Salema itself, compact, friendly, quiet, simple, comfortable oh and steep!! Located up a flight of steps just back from the beach it offers a great view of the coast. The room was compact but comfortable with good wifi and an excellent bed, although the fridge was a little noisy. Breakfast was excellent with fresh...

We loved our stay at A Mare. Bettina is a wonderful host. Our bed was very comfortable and the best sleep we had in Portugal. Good quality and clean sheets, towels, etc. Location is great, views wonderful, breakfast excellent. All facilities are clean and well maintained. The abundant patios with chairs and perfect for morning tea/coffee to welcome the day...

Our time in the Algarve was a delight. We were there in the off season, it was beautiful and quiet. We sleep soundly and would awake at the great views of the ocean while having morning coffee. We had this area as a base for visiting the South West corner of the Algarve. We didn't want to leave. The beach...

From the moment of Batina's gracious welcome to the end of our sixth relaxing day at A Mare, we could not have found lodgings more accommodating to our large group's desire for opem communal space and sweeping sea views. Every room or suite is airy and cheerful and has a private and interesting outdoor space to enjoy. The breakfasts are...

We traveled in the off season, so it was beautiful and quiet. We specifically booked room 6 because of the ocean view from our room, with a terrace as well as a skylight where I watched the stars as I lay in bed. It was a little corner of paradise with a lovely breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice, fruit,...
