Salvador is a big city (3 million people) and also has the problems of big cities (traffic jams) because they have 1 million cars. I decided for Mar Brasil Hotel because it is close to the airport. The hotel is different from the big hotel chains (the treatment is very personal). The staff is very friendly and always happy to... More

The hotel is quite new, beds are comfortable and the AC units are very quiet. The rooms are clean, some have baths, all seem to have blackout curtains, important as the sun shines from 5am most of the year. Service is very good, staff is attentive and polite. They should train the cleaning and maintenance staff better though. Even though... More

The hotel was ok in general with the room being a little on the small side and breakfast was adequate. However, I wanted to do some laundry with them but I was leaving the same day and the hotel manager advised me to use the express laundry service - BIG MISTAKE - he said that it was 50% more than...

The room was small, but efficient. Always clean, plenty of towels by the pool. Beach is a 200 yard walk and very clean beach. Pools are a little small, but not needed with the beach so close. Wifi works great, even across the street at the local shops which is good if you use whatsapp or hangouts for texting. Very... More

We were allocated a nice suite equipped with a small very basic kitchen, balcony, 2 tv's, fridge, sofa. The bedroom itself was not ensuite, but this mattered little. The bed was very comfortable. Staff here are very helpful, always smiling, nothing is to much trouble. They went out of their way to help. Unfortunately what let the hotel down where... More

The hotel is very nice, clean, well located. Staff is very slow, but friendly. Food is good, not expensive. I loved walking out in the early morning to the beach in front of the hotel. You can book a person to do a massage, well, don't. Breakfast is great, lots of traditional cakes and stuff.

No complains. The hotel is very well managed by Renata and she is always looking how to improve and ask costumer if something is needed. The staff is well train and very friendly. I wish the non-front desk personal speak Spanish or English which seems in Brazil is not a priority to learn another language except portuguese. The breakfast area... More

Mar Brasil is located on a busy street almost one hour car drive from centro storico of Salvador. If you cross the street there is a nice beach but without anything. To meet some people at the beach you have to walk 20 min. South. The rooms are spartanic furnished. The staff seem to be disturbed by doing nothing if... More

We were there for the World Cup with our family. A bit outside the main city of Salvador but quiet and safe. Nice rooms and beautiful location. Very friendly and helpful front desk employees; specifically Luciana and Raul. Food could be better...

I recently organized a business trip to Salvador, Brazil for the World Cup. The manager and staff were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. We had a buffet style dinner one night at the hotel which offered a nice variety of local samplings. They have two nicely maintained pools, and plenty of covered and uncovered open... More
