My dad asked me to write the review: he and my mum completely disliked the hotel. It was old-fashioned, shabby and decadent, broken furniture, stained floor, the toilette was ruined, draughts, not properly clean. Law quality breakfast, especially because everyone expected 4 stars.. Staff demotivated!

No, the hotel didn't live up to its 5 star rating. But it's comfortable and clean, and the food was good and the hotel staff were friendly and accomodating. No one should be spending tons of time in the hotel anyway since there's so many things to do in Bahia. Good value for the price paid

Even if it is not (anymore) a real five stars hotel, it offered is a very pleasant experience for a very low price (around 40 euros/ night). The room was very big (with a beautiful sea view) the staff was professional and spoke English. The breakfast was great. The hotel is a bit dated, the internet is kind of slow... More

My first stay at the Bahia Othon had happened 30 years ago - and the Hotel has not changed that much - in the bad way. It is located in a gorgeous place, facing the sea, but nowadays, this is almost all that lasts. It is a big hotel, but maintenance clearly is not the priority. The furniture is outfashioned,...

Very helpful staff, good breakfast, silenced rooms, but old furniture and decoration. Not very close to restaurants and the beach you can use, because the beach close to the hotel is not safe to use. The gym is old and it opens late.

Hotel is very old, probably from the late 80's or early 90's so it really needs renovations. During my visit, I ordered a burguer which was clearly not made with fresh meat. Internet speed was terrible, which made me prefer 3G rather than using the Hotel's wifi. Breakfast was fine, but should be better for this size hotel. The worst... More

This beautiful hotel is on the south coast some distance from Barra and the more popular Pelourinho in Salvador but that is more than made up for by the spectacular sea front setting. It is a big hotel with all the amenities the Othon chain is known for. There are two towers and all rooms have a sea view and... More
