There was a review about bed bugs and I should have paid more attention to it. We had 4 rooms and 3 of the 4 had bugs, mosquitos and bed bugs. There was a can of spray in the room, so use it. The hotel itself was not too bad, beach resort feel, but it was a quiet period. The... More

I've spent my last weekend at this hotel and I have to confess my disappointment... I love the place and hotel once. I've been there since my honey moon, 11 yrs ago! But this time they've cut some expenses that shouldn't been cutted! In the past there were many animals around the rooms, increasing the great jungle atmosphere, golf cars... More

First we would like to say it was very good welcome you to receive in the hotel after 11 years! About your review, we are very surprised, because the Cana Brava Resort has an infrastructure and service superior than 11 years ago.

Although the hotel is beautiful and huge, the nature helps a lot with palm trees and birds all over the place, the service is terrible. If you wanted coconut water - in Bahia! - you had to wait because there were no coconuts in the hotel. If you wanted to have lunch by the pool or at the beach, you... More

Hotel has a very nice beach location, responsive staff, clean rooms, but a bed bug problem. As an experienced traveller to tropical areas, I know to use DEET for the expected mosquito and other insect bites. I was not prepared, and very surprised to be bitten by bed bugs. At the end of my stay I realized the insect bites... More

Stayed at the Cana Brava this past weekend with my young family. We had two rooms and although we requested connecting rooms this was not provided. The rooms themselves were ok, clean as you would expect in Brazil but not particularly well equipped. The refrigerator was old and noisy, the tv was small and reception not great and the air... More

My family and I stayed at Canabrava Resort Hotel, in Ilheus for three times. The location and the beach were beautiful. The hotel was fantastic. The room and the bungalow were redecorated, in good size and clean. The breakfast was delicious, like the other meals. The staff was helpful and nice! We'll return quicky!
