Very unimpressed with this place. There is no beach. There is a TINY beach about 5 minutes walking distance. Not really worth visiting compared to the beaches in Salvador. There are no restaurants, convenience stores or grocery stores in walking distance either. So you are at the mercy of the hotel restaurant, which is decent, I have to say. Still,... More

Recent reviews of this property are quite descriptive and fair. Just to add: a beautiful sand beach is just a few steps down the safe street just past some upscale local shops including two nice quick restaurants and a bakery. Banks and a pharmacy are a short walk. The large, upscale Barra mall with shops and great dining is just... More

We had a nice stay here while in Salvador. Rooms are an average size. We were on a high floor in the corner so had an excellent view from multiple angles. The breakfast was awesome! Loads of tropical fruit and other items. The pool was also great. The hotel is on a rocky section of beach so no swimming there.... More

My check-in was a breeze. Ana at the front desk was very friendly and helpful, plus she speaks good English, which was very helpful when requesting service. My room was comfortable with double bed overlooking the Atlantic ocean. The floors were all tiles, 2 windows and a door to the tiny balcony overlooked the Atlantic ocean. I could hear ocean... More

The dirt is obvious - stained hall carpets, sticky black residue on the bed side table. Yes, the décor is old and dated but soap would help a lot. We ate lunch on site and were billed about $12 more for one item. The staff agreed bur refused to rewrite the bill suggesting we get a credit for the next... More

This hotel looks its age (60/70's style building) from the outside but the rooms seem to have been refurbished, wonderful bed and modern bathroom. Fantastic breakfast overlooking the ocean, with very helpful staff. Very good swimmingpool and only about 100 metres away from access to the beach.

Location is great - on the beach, with all rooms boasting an ocean view and not too far from all of the attractions of Salvador. When this place opened, circa 1970, it must have been the last word in hotels. Problem is, nothing has been done to it ever since! A serious upgrade is needed but it remains a quote... More
