During the World Cup, we knew we were going to get gouged, especially when internet problems delayed us booking a room until after the USA-Belgium match was set. Looking at the photos, we figured it was a sort of faded-glory 1970's palace, and expected a bit of dinginess and knew it would be a bit out of the way. Let's... More

I found out about a week before my trip that I had booked the wrong hotel. In Salvador there is the Sol Bahia and then the Bahia Sol. The Bahia Sol is near the Barra neighborhood and is probably the place you are looking to stay. However, since my booking was nonrefundable I went ahead and stayed at the Sol... More

Located in the Pataramas neighborhood, this "in fairly good shape" hotel is situated high on a hill a block or two from the beach. As such, getting to the hotel was a chore by foot as you had to descend and climb a very long and steep driveway when walking to and from the beach. This hotel is NOT located... More

I arrived at this hotel in the evening and the receptionists could not find my booking. I provided them my voucher, but it wasn't enough for them. They also did not want to contact the customer services from the travel agency that I used that was based in New York. After making an international phone call, I was given a... More
