Even if this hotel is a little shabby it still has it charm. You cant beat the location with the beautiful seaview and on the other side you have the jungle with all the lovely noisy birds, even monkeys ca be seen if you are up early. As said, some parts are shabby, the gym for instance must be from... More

This hotel is not on the beach but with easy access from all roads. 3 minutes from the airport . Breakfast could be better because of the high price charged for the night . The pool is outstanding and the rooms are okay, nothing spectacular and worth what is charged . Lots of mosquitoes .

We were looking for a base in Porto Seguro for a couple of nights before heading to a Pousada at Praia do Espelho and this filled the bill. The room was very nice, clean and quiet. Meals are all buffet style and very adequate if not a gourmet experience. The hotel is within walking distance of the centre with a... More

I have stayed in a few different hotels in Porto Seguro. Best Western Shalimar Praia Hotel is definitely one of the best, with good chances of being the top choice. It has a very professional service, good structure and honest location (very close to city center, but slightly far from the main daylight beach attractions). Also, their breakfast is really...

I stayed here with my wife for an overnight stop off before heading to Trancoso the following day. We arrived late on a flight so got there around midnight. We were taken to a room at the front of the hotel so had the noise of the traffic outside and there was a really strong smell of urine in the... More

The swimming pool, the gym, the relax area, the staff are amazing. Location: it is close but not very close. I need to take a bus or a... More

The hotel room was ok, but had strong damp smell! I got bitten by mosquitos and got a terrible allergy reaction which left my legs with red spots for at least 15 days, and still hasn't cleared up (around 6 months later) as they left dark marks on my legs. I had stayed in another hotel before moving to Shalimar... More

Very good base for exploring surroundings (within walking distance to restaurants and markets) and / or staying around swimming pool. Hotel is clean and staff is helpfull. It got a bit too busy during breakfast hours as the hotel was full. A good designated jogging/bike lane across the street.

The hotel is ok, I could even live with the cockroaches showing up in the bathrooms once in a while, it's just 3 minutes from the airport by car and within walking distance from the city center, the garden with swimming pool is very nice, BUT: be sure that you book a STANDARD room, NOT a luxury room.
