Tarrant Family, October 2019
We had such a great first family holiday with our 2 year old son. It was so easy and stress free and he had a blast! We will definitely be booking with Tots to Travel again and would recommend to everyone. Thank you!
Sealy Family, October 2019
This was our first trip with Tots to Travel and we were very impressed. The toys and equipment were excellent quality, the resort catered well for children and it was just a short walk to the town centre and beach. We would definitely recommend.
Newall Family, October 2019
So easy and relaxing, thank you.
Ledingham Family, October 2019
Great location close to the beach. Staff were very friendly and helpful and always on hand to help. The essential kit made all the difference in terms of entertainment!
Mistry Family, September 2019
Well organised and beautiful place overall and villas very spacious, the staff were all very friendly and helpful.
Mistry Family, September 2019
Overall a good holiday made easier by the equipment and toys provided by the Tots team. Hotel was family friendly and the staff were always on hand to help. The shuttle to and from the village was a nice touch and essential with little ones.
Bradbrook Family, September 2019
You book a holiday, but you are never quite sure if you will get something which matches the pictures and your expectations. No need to worry about that with Tots - this holiday exceeded our expectations. The holiday home (and it was a home) was perfect - spacious, safe and full of kids toys to suit different ages. I say a home because normally on holiday where you stay is a base to sleep and leave - here, the children wanted to stay and play, and we could enjoy sitting on the [safe] balcony whilst they did so. Tots have clearly thought of everything and we will definitely use them again for future holidays (both at this location and will try others) - what we experienced on this holiday has given us complete confidence that any holiday booked through them will deliver a quality and safe holiday home to enjoy. We recommend them without hesitation.
Dare Family, September 2019
We just got back from our first holiday through Tots to Travel and we’re incredible impressed with the standard of the accommodation everything we expected and more. The whole booking process was stress free and very helpful. The only thing we would say is the location is quite remote and not a lot to do if the weather isn’t brilliant as we did have a few days of rain if we returned we would definitely hire a car this time as we spent a lot on taxis to get everywhere. Also bring on a very steep hill my older mum did struggle to get up and down but saying that the resort was fantastic and providing a shuttle bus and lifts when needed. I’m conclusion we would defiantly book another holiday through Tots to Travel we may just try a slightly busier location.
Ball Family, September 2019
The apartment was great, felt like it had really been vetted by the Tots team, the Tots villas were the best location of villas on the whole complex, everything we needed for our girls was included. Complex was lovely, only downside was the very steep walk back from the beach & restaurants.
Cantlay Family, September 2019
Such a dream, made the whole experience a lot less stressful! We could just enjoy our family time!
McKee Family, September 2019
My husband and I were very nervous about our first holiday abroad with our son so Tots to Travel's child friendly holiday package was perfect for us. We booked Salema Beach Village as we were familiar with Portugal and it met my husband's high expectations. From the first moment we arrived we were made to feel welcomed and relaxed. We arrived four hours prior to check in but the villa was already ready for us. The staff at reception gave us a full description of everything the resort had to offer and what we could expect, like a free service into the village and new beach towels on a daily basis. A staff member then took us to our villa, unloaded our luggage and talked us through how things worked and that we could expect the villa to be cleaned daily. When we opened the door to the villa all the toys were laid out for our son to play with and he was so excited to start exploring. The villa had all the child items we had asked for and more and included washing up liquid, washing tabs, dishwasher tabs and hand and body wash so everything a family needed to get it started. Our villa overlooked the pool area and the pool bar which was perfect for the short walk to breakfast everyday. The communal Tots gardens had sandpits and lots of toys for our son to play with. The gardens created a community feel which encouraged children to play with each other; lovely for our son being an only child. The resort is very quiet and relaxing which was perfect for our family. Salema itself is a quiet beach village with a supermarket and beach shops. The walk into Salema is very demanding and our three year old struggled with the hill but the complimentary service into the village was perfect for us. We ate in some lovely and very reasonably priced restaurants within the village which the resort booked for us and were very child friendly. We hired a car which is a necessity if you want to explore outside of Salema and also if you want to visit the bigger supermarkets which are within a 10 minute drive. We met some lovely families and the staff were amazing and couldn't do more for you. The only suggestion I would have is that the resort considers heating the pool as it could become very cold later on in the day. I would definitely recommend the resort and wouldn't think twice about booking it again. Lovely relaxing holiday, thanks Tots to Travel.
Kirkpatrick Family, September 2019
The villa was fantastic, it’s a great family home away from home especially for toddlers and young kids and the welcome package was great. For babies I felt the property lacked a suitable baby bath, changing table and a bin big enough to hold the many nappies. The breakfast was okay but not great and the swimming pools we a bit cold especially for babies. Overall we had a great holiday and loved the villa and would definitely come back and recommend to others despite the minor points noted above.
Orriss Family September 2019
Tots to Travel provided the perfect setup for us as a family with all of the hassle of transporting equipment being non existent. The children’s room was beautiful with bed guards, animal cushions and bedtime reading. Tots to Travel also provided an array of toys in the apartment for indoor and outdoor use in our own secure garden. Pool toys were also available from the shared area. I would 100 per cent recommend Tots to Travel to family and friends and I will absolutely be booking other holidays through them. They made our first family holiday a huge success and extremely enjoyable. Thank you to all at Tots to Travel.
Cooper-Hicks Family, September 2019
Fantastic villa overlooking the pool. Perfectly clean and equip. Lovely toys and books, Henry especially enjoyed dressing up in the superhero capes/masks. There were no English kids TV channels but we'd brought the iPad with a few programmes downloaded so wasn't a major issue. We'd definitely recommend hiring a car, as so much easier to get to the inter-marche and surrounding beaches, also great for exploring and transfers to the airport. However the shuttle service into Salema/beach is good and the staff are more than helpful getting you to and from. Overall we loved it and would return.
Whitaker Family, August 2019
An excellent family villa on a wonderful resort in a great location. A perfect balance between having our own space and also being with other families. We loved it!
Pfutzner Family, August 2019
Thanks so much for a fantastic holiday. We were travelling with a 2 year old and a 4 month old and the toys and equipment you guys provided were absolutely spot on! Our 2 year old in particular absolutely loved the toys, the books, the sand pit, the bed, the toilet seat, and the close proximity to the pool! A great service all round - it made everything so easy for us and so enjoyable for the kids. Well worth it.
Sturge Family, August 2019
The villa was absolutely beautiful, and perfectly located by the facilities to make everything easy. Our children loved the toys and books in the villa and the garden, as well as easy access to the pool and pool bar. The golf buggy was a real novelty, and saved us from a lot of whining about being at the top of a hill! Fabulous place that we would love to return to.
Harrison Family, July 2019
Very toddler friendly villa with lots of books and toys. Nice pool area with a very good starter pool for little ones.
Myles Family, July 2019
Loved staying at Salema Beach and were impressed by the range and quality of books and toys provided by Tots to Travel...our boys particularly liked the superhero costumes!!
Kotze Family, July 2019
It was an amazing holiday, the location was great and it was wonderful to have the option of the swimming pools and the beach.
Sivyer Family, June 2019
Tots to Travel really have thought of everything. The villa was so safe that we knew our crawling baby could happily play without us having to worry about the stairs/balcony etc. Our toddler was in absolute heaven with all the toys and the outside trolleys. The staff at Salema are very child friendly and make every effort to help in any way they can. I would recommend this holiday to anyone and we are already planning our next Tots adventure! Thank you.
Donnachie Family, May 2019
What an amazing week! A beautiful villa on a peaceful family resort with everything we needed to ensure a stress free holiday with our 6 month old daughter we just wish we had booked two weeks!
Brigwood Family, May 2019
Salema Beach village is a lovely place to holiday with toddlers. The playground, beach and swimming pool kept us all amused all day.
Voysey Family, May 2019
We had a great week - the facilities were fantastic.
Westwood Family, April 2019
I was happily impressed with the villa, the toys and books, the security and items at Salema which made our holiday easy, interesting and therefore, relaxing as parents. After staying at another Tots resort (Green Garden) my expectations were high and our experiences were matched.
Casey Family, April 2019
First time with Tots and the whole experience from booking to the actual stay was perfect. Great facilities and service plus thoughtful little touches made for an ideal break with everything we needed. Many thanks.
Frosina Family, April 2019
We had a wonderful time and would definitely use Tots to Travel again.
Family stayed June 2018
Lovely family getaway. First visit to the Algarve with our young daughter and chose Salema Beach Village due to being relatively quiet, close proximity to lovely quiet sandy beach, pool and restaurants. The villa was fabulous, well laid out with huge lounge / dining area leading Out to a balcony with sea views. Two large bedrooms with wonderful ensuite facilities. Pool area was lovely with plenty of sun loungers and shade with 2 kids pools as well as the main pool. I would definitely recommend this villa for family / group getaways.
Family stayed May 2018
We absolutely loved this place. Staff were so helpful before and during our stay, the accommodation was extremely high quality and the location is gorgeous. The pool area was well set-up for kids, there was a small well-maintained playground with swings and the lovely sandy beach was perfect for a first paddle. Salema itself is charmingly undeveloped with a handful of nice bars and restaurants on the beach and a couple of small convenience stores for essentials. Some of the restaurants offer a takeaway service which was great for nights when we wanted to enjoy the villa but didn’t want to cook.
Family stayed September 2017
This holiday is everything I wished for . The accommodation was amazing.The staff couldn't do enough for us. From the staff in the pool bar to the reception staff. The staff take you down to the town by golf buggy and collect you at the time you require. There is also a mini bus that takes and collects you every hour. I would certainly return. A perfect family holiday!

We have hand-picked these villas for their proximity to the pool and resort facilities. They are set over two floors with a ground floor patio and large first floor balcony and provide plenty of space for families with busy tots in tow. A floorplan is available to view in the image gallery above.
Take a look inside - a Tots customer shares his holiday experience at Salema.
Each villa has a large balcony off the living room which is great for al fresco family meals. A fabulous roof terrace with stunning views can be accessed via gated stairs from the balcony. A great spot to relax with the baby monitor when the little ones are asleep, but not safe for use by children.
Downstairs on the patio area there are a couple of sunloungers. The patio opens on to a shared lawned garden which is fully enclosed and the ideal place for little ones to get busy with all those toys we've provided!
Parking is available next to the villa. If you plan to explore the local area then a car is recommended.
The shared pool area is a short walk from the Tots villas and Salema village is only about 500m and the beach a further 300m, but it is quite an incline back up to the resort. A frequent and free shuttle service is provided so you can get back to the villa hassle free.
