Chose the hotel for its proximity to a school at which I was taking a 2-week intensive Portuguese course. We were in room 502 with direct beach view and small balcony fitting a small round table and two chairs. We arrived pretty late into the evening from our long distance flight from Europe and reception gave us a warm welcome, even speaking some English. No welcome drink but voucher for one at the bar later on. A kind porter helped us with the luggage to the room and explained facilities. The room is spacious enough for 2, the bed new and good mattress, aircon can be set individually and is located in a way that you don’t get blown off your beds. Small camp board no drawers by the door, also holding salacious safe and the minibar (our arrangement included.... we didn’t quite understand so only used 3 bottles of water). Opposite the king size bed a long board used as desk with another light and chair, place to keep the suitcase, which we kept open to hold all the items that would have gone into a drawer.... The practical bathroom has a toilet, sink with sufficient space around it to hold all your stuff, big mirror and small magnifying one (the latter no light) and offers soap bars, shampoo and conditioner - no shower gel as usual in brazil. The shower is spacious but unfortunately has no hand held(behind not so well kept sliding glass doors) and a line to hold wet beach gear. Sometimes the floor by the door is too dusty but otherwise the room was perfectly clean and well kept. Breakfast buffet is sumptuous not only in Brazilian standards: local and global fare with huge variety of fresh fruit, cold cuts and preserves/marmalades, huge variety of cooked food, breads, cascades, musli corner, coffee and milk and fresh juices and water available plenty. Staff is very kind, especially Giesa became a family friend, but everybody goes the extra mile and smile to help even when things get very busy like over the weekend. Location is great: you only need to cross the street to be on a nice city beach and have plenty of restaurants and bars and shopping facilities in easy walking distance. About 15 minutes’ Uber distance from Pelourinho. Would definitely choose again when returning to Salvador

I am a female solo traveller from the UK in my 20s and came to this hotel because I wanted to be very near the beach and have a break from sharing dorms in hostels. It is a great hotel - simple but perfect: - Clean rooms with good air con - Fantastic customer service from the Reception team, very friendly and try hard to communicate with me in English. - Large delicious breakfast buffet - 1 minute walk to Porto de Barra Beach - 1 minute walk to supermarket open till 10.00PM. Definitely recommend if you fancy leaving Salvador old town and maybe on your way to the islands.

Location is not close to main attractions, but if you're here for the Carnival the main "parade" starts just minutes away. We bought an access to a viewing area, kind of like a football stadium's standing places, above the street which the "parade" goes through. The place is called CAMAROCE and there are many of them. If you buy that, make sure your hotel is close to it, as we had to walk with the parade for 2 hours to reach ours, because it was at the very end. It was very expensive, but that's probably due to the Carnival. Location is close to the main promanade and where the Carnival "parade" starts. Good wi-fi, comfortable bed, clean sheets, towels and bathroom. Good breakfast and very friendly staff. If the location of the hotel suits you, you should have everything you need here.

We chose this hotel for its location overlooking the beach at Barra. Felipe at reception was extremely friendly and welcoming and we were given a large front-facing room with a balcony on the 6th floor. Apart from having to change our pillows because they were too hard, the room was spacious and comfortable. Not much hot water in the shower and often not enough pressure but really nothing to complain about. However, we felt that the hotel is in need of a good makeover. Restaurant staff at breakfast are indifferent as is the food. It lacks imagination - the cakes all taste the same and the dining room is very lack lustre. The pool is clean and large and great for a good swim. We would definitely stay here again for the location but wouldn't be rushing back for anything else.

This hotel has a friendly staff, a comfortable room and from my room, a marvelous view of the ocean and the skyline of Salvador! Stayed here 4 nights. The breakfast was very good with a nice variety. Also we had the dinner buffet a couple of nights, which was also good. The grounds are well maintained, and while I didn't use the pool it did look inviting. Easy to get Uber to and from the hotel. As well, there usually was a taxi standing there if needed. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay here and would return.

The room is very standard but as we expected, the breakfast buffet was huge and amazing, we loved it, the small pool was perfect at that time of the year: not too cold, in a sunny place and not crowded. We had the pleasure to meet Louisa (sorry if I mispell it), the Housekeeping manager, who speak in English, gave us good tips for restaurants around and was very kind! It was exactly as we expected it, and Louisa made the experience even better!
