We stayed in a top floor condo which was spacious, very clean and well equipped. There was lots of sunshine on the wrap around deck which had a large table and lounge chairs. The complex has a view of the ocean and is a three minute walk from the beach. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of restaurants in...

We stayed at the top studio facing the ocean. The studio is well equipped and was spotlessly clean on arrival. There is a big terrace, with umbrella and sunbeds, and sun until 6pm. The appartement is a 2 min walk from the beach and center of town. There is no swimmingpool, wich would have been nice since the ocean is...

We have stayed in one of the top floor studios previously and these are excellent for a couple. This time we were joined by 4 friends and so had one of the three-bedroom apartments. These are spacious, very well equipped, super clean and with modern furnishings - mainly Ikea. Big sunny terrace, 2 minute walk to the beach. The Dutch...

Filhas do Mar was quite a find for us just moments after entering Salema. While traveling there the four of us agreed we wanted to stay in town, and on or close to the beach. So many of the properties listed were 2-5 kms out of town so the Filhas do Mar fit our criteria. Situated in the flats of...

We had a great stay at Filhas do Mar set right at the Salema beach. The apartments are clean, spacious, airconditioned and fully equipped with everything you need. Salema beach is just a stone's throw away so every evening you fall asleep with the sounds of sea in the background. Filhas do Mar is an ideal retreat to explore the...

We have stayed in Filhas do Mar on three occasions in the past - staying for a week or more in one of the top floor studios. These are delightful - modern, efficient, fully equipped, super clean and with a huge sunny terrace with views of the sea. The beach is a very short walk, and there is a lot...

We were really pleased with hour holiday stay for 2 weeks at Filhas do Mar in Salema. We have been there twice within 4 years time. The apartments are big and fully equipped. Salema is a small village and an excellent stay for a young family. The apartments are child friendly and due to size of the apartment we were...

Salema is a very nice and rather quiet village which is not spoiled by the waves of tourism. There are several good restaurants and a very attractive beach which you reach in a two minute walk from the apartment. The apartment itself is very well equiped and very well maintained. Very good shower etc. Sunny terrace. Very nice Dutch owners...

“I think the best apartment is on the top floor, as they are the most private and have best views, however the reality is you probably haven't got much choice as the flats on each of the floors vary in size and so depends on your party size.”
