We very much enjoyed the warm and comfortable atmosphere and assistance that we received. We would definitely recommend The View to others. Many thanks, Claudia Gowan (and Wescott Peterson)
The construction so close to the hotel is disturbing, as was the pounding, etc. when doing some repairs to a unit that was two doors from us. However, we understand that such work needs attention. We hope that care is taken to avoid over-developing the area so as not to lose the beauty of the seaside and cultural identity of the village of Salema.
Our condo was clean, great view and we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom unit.
because we booked with Booked.net the following info was not available...1. check in was at a different location 2. we could have arranged to purchase a starter kit ie. salt, pepper...you know the basics.
First-class accommodation in a great location 5 mins from the lovely Salema beach. Nice pool too - if a tad chilly in April!
While the pool bar was very nice, it didn't sell any food, and for the inclusive breakfast we had to drive to the golf resport 10 mins away - which was a bit of a pain. Mind you, they did give us free access to the spa by way of compansation. Again, this may be due to the time of year?
Everything! Amazing view, excellent facilities, good value, easy access to the Salema beach by foot (and to other beautiful beaches by car). Kitchen well equipped.
It's bit of a walk from the town center and the beach, but well worth it for the view!
Excellent accommodation with good quality fittings, comfortable and clean, great views of the sea, three great terraces, good pool. Very friendly and efficient reception and cleaning staff. Some excellent reasonably priced fish restaurants in Salema which is a five minute walk away.
The reception is at the main site - Parque da Floresta - not at The View. This is ok if you find out in advance, which we did thanks to other reviewers, but not if you don'T. We had to rescue a Canadian couple who had no car, arrived by taxi at The View and then found out they had to go 4km to check in. The resort needs to tell people in advance that the check-in is not on site. The key availability time of 16.00 is too late, especially for people arriving on morning flights. Also, there was only a bar, not a restaurant on site. Frankly, these arrangements are not in keeping with the star rating of the resort, and are poor.
The view and the pool
Although we advised that we did not have an iron, we never recieved one throughout our stay. Also we arrive Friday evening, had the maid service on the Sunday and never again!
Lovely apartment with a great view and provate roof terrace. Walking distance to the beach, and had a nice pool too.
The bed was a little soft.
Sea view; location; quality of the facilities.
Parking too far from my villa and long steep stairs make it difficult to carry luggage, etc. Villa had no coffee machine. It is ridiculous not to have such a cheap and useful appliance at a luxury villa as this.
The location is unmatchable. The houses and villas are amazing, pretty new and very well equipped. The relax of the surroundings incredible.
Very spacious and clean.
I wished they had towels for the pool use. It would have been nice if the kitchen had basic things like: salt/pepper, oil, laundry detergent, etc.
Fabulous view and accomodations: a full condo with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, several terraces, BBQ. Great value, too,at least when we went (September). Also, Salema is a great little seaside town.
Great view, good apartments.
Our bathroom had a problem (flusher did not work) and we had to use only one bathroom for the six people in the three bedrooms. It took them most of our stay to get it fixed, which they only did the day before we left. We were charged the regular price for a three bedroom and two bathrom villa and had to pay it all at check in, and were not compensated in any form for having only one bathroom. At check out they tried to blame it on us saying webhad throw paper towels on the toilet. We did not. We heard the technicians who were solving the problem saying there was a bottle inside the pipes and that that had happened during construction since we were the firt to use that house. We had stayed at a diffeent house the previous year and everything was fine.
Beautiful place, amazing view, quiet envoriment, all inclusive in rooms
the villas are absolutely beautiful and stunning views!
You need a car as reception is closed and you have to drive elsewhere. Swimming pool closed as not enough residents to open it. Free membership at the golf resort was closed for repair on the only day we could have used it. No breakfast on site restaurant as again closed. When they say this is out of season this is definitely out of season.
Complete comfort and it felt like home away from home. Wish we had better weather to enjoy pool etc.
Ordered jacuzzi for 2 nights, It never got hot and was still charged for 1 night.
