It results difficult to make this post because I have mixed feelings involving my stay. The Kiaroa is settled in a spectacular place! However, we were not lucky with the weather: it was raining and the tide was full. Because of this condition, we ended up staying a long time in the hotel and had time to assess more rigorously...

We spent a week at Kiaroa which is a beautiful hotel in a stunning setting. The beach was incredibly beautiful and the hotel pool was one of the biggest and most interesting designs I'd ever seen. The food was good but not amazing - a bit repetitive. Unfortunately, due to it being low season, several of the activities they advertise... More

We had an amazing time here. the resort is stunning as is the surrounding beach. We went in June because we were there for the World Cup. We were probably a bit lucky with the weather which was very pleasant (there is a degree of risk of going at this time of year but while we had rain here and... More

Kiaroa is located at Marau peninsula about 40 minutes flight from Salvador,Bahia.Unless you want to bump 120 kms from Ilheus flying from Salvador in the Resort's small plane is the best alternative.The resort is beautiful and the service is very friendly and effective.The food is very good although there is a lack of good Bahia's food such as Acaraje or...

Paradise on earth, Marau is one of the last wild places in south Bahia. This small (less than 30 rooms, from suites to bangalos) provides personalized service, amazing infra structure, with the easy going way that is so dear to Bahia. Get out of the car by the time you are arriving and someone will provide you a glass of... More

I've been with my boyfriend and it was an amazing relaxed week. All was like a dream!!!!!!! You can have relaxed time but you can also swimming in the ocean or surfing. You can watch the ocean while you're drinking a delicioius moijito. The bungalow are enormous and so romantic!!!!

The place looks stunning and I found the service quality to be excellent. There is the most amazing beach, virtually deserted, at the back of the complex and the whole place seemed very well run to me. The food at dinner was a bit ordinary for the price I have to say. The main downside though is the 2 hour... More

We had a very nice stay in the Kiaora Eco Lodge. Friendly staff, nice and clean rooms, delicious breakfast and the chefs suggestion in the evening was always superb. We have rented 2 quads for 2 days to travel on our own, this way we could discover the beaches and the restaurants outside the hotel. The guys went fishing one... More

The fact that this resort is over 100km by road from the mainland is no excuse for the poor state of the resort, the hugely unimainative food, the unavailability of many of the facilities and the ridiculous prices. Very little works, some examples: The games room has nothing in it other than about 10 falling apart soft-back books in German.... More

Management response:

We regret that it has been raining the whole period of stay and we understand that the dream trip to the paradise beach was tainted due to bad weather. When the expectation of a journey is frustrated by bad weather it is natural looking for defects to minimize frustration. This is a claim that goes against all the compliments of... More

This resort does have a very good location but we did not agree that this resort warranted the 5 star rating that it gives itself. We read of poor staff attitudes prior to our departure and took this issue up with our agent who checked it out. We had problems checking in being told on arrival that our room was... More

In this case, the agency asked us a Tropical Luxury Room. We gave an up grade to another accommodation When the client arrived at the hotel, he hadn't liked the accommodation, so we offered the available accommodation in that moment. This is a common practice in any hotel, if the customer does not like the accommodation and if there is... More
