We were on a couples trip and despite the amazing view of the city, this wasn't the right place to stay. The hotel is plain and dated. They are renovating it so they are aware of this issue (for what it's worth, there was never any noise from construction). The rooms are quite big and quiet but I wouldn't call... More

Great place to visit with an excellent view to the ocean. The sunset from the roof top is beautiful and beyond comparison! Also the reception is very welcoming. If you have a car, there is valet parking! The pool is open all day with a bar at service!

Carpets are filthy in the corridors Bathrooms are tired and dirty with leaking taps. First night in Restaurant no staff and had to go into the kitchen to call someone to attend me... More

The hotel is ok, needs a revamp. But staff are friendly and Internet is very good ince you can get connected. Rooms are big so you have all the space you need. Views are amazing. Hotel needs to redo the pool area upstairs to something more entertaining. With such amazing views, why spoil it with an ave pool area. Its... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the The Golden Tulip. The hotel was located on top of a hill with a beautiful view of the Bahia and the ocean from the lobby. A free shuttle taxi up & down the hill was provided if you didn't want to walk. The rooms are clean and modern, my room also had a... More

Great views at breakfast, and delicious breakfast.. but the hotel rooms are gross. Beds not comfortable, No hott water, and horrible soaps. Not recommended to stay here..... Stay across the way at the Pestana. much better rooms. This shouldn't be considered a 4 star hotel at all.

Lovely hotel for both business and / or a romantic stay. Luxurious rooms, roof top pool, beach side location and a walk away from some great night life. Only let down was the quality and choice of the food in the restaurant which was to to the same standard. Still a decent cocktail though!!

Arrived around 9pm. They gave me a bad room. Air conditioner wasn't working. There were no towels, body cream, soap. The mini bar was empty. Tried to go downstairs to eat at the bar and after waiting forever found out of many items. Asked for the housekeeper to fill in my minibar and she said only the next day.
