We could not have enjoyed our stay more. Our room was bright, clean, sunny and comfortable. Having a fridge and tea-making facilities was great. The bus from Lagos dropped us off at the front door (nearly), and the walk to the village and the beach is about 3 minutes. Trailheads for gorgeous hikes began about 12 minutes away. Bettina helped...

This was one of our best accommodation picks on our 3+ week trip through Spain and Portugal. Bettina was a warm and gracious hostess. She made several dinner reservations on our behalf and was helpful with any questions that we had during our stay. Apartment A was wonderful in every way. The kitchen is stocked with absolutely everything you could...

The guesthouse has been renovated during winter time. Our room was the first one ready: simple but cozy, also with a table outside on the balcony from where you see and hear the sea. With fridge and facilities for coffee/tea. Breakfast was complete - bread and pastry; cheese, ham and cherry tomato; jam, butter; fresh fruits; cereals (Müsli!) and yogurts;...

My wife and I spent three nights here during our 25 day tour of Portugal. So glad we came to the Algarve, to Salema and to this B&B. Bettina met us and helped with luggage. We were in Apt B which included bedroom, bath, living room and kitchen (with microwave but no oven). The balcony was spacious, offering great views....

We had just left Lisbon and we were looking forward to a place to decompress in the Algarve. We choose Salema because it looked like a place to visit that would be slow and comfortable. It was. The A Mare Bed and Breakfast was not luxurious but it was very comfortable. Bettina helped to provide a welcoming climate. The B&B...

Thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay here. Highly recommended. Comfortable and clean accommodation, great view AND close to the beach and Salema's restaurants. Bettina's friendly personality and smile made going to breakfast a pleasure.

As most others, we were pointed to this place by Rick Steves. We were booking late considering most places were packed for the summer. Thankfully room 5 was available.

Spent 2 wonderful nights here. Bettina was so helpful with information, both before we arrived and while we were there. Clean, neat and great value with a great location. Short minute walk to the village and beach and bus stops right around the corner. Breakfast was included and was perfect. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
