I was at this hotel for one night in January 2015. Staying here was a nightmare, and it was by far the worst experience I've ever had at a hotel. I don't know where to start, but I'll try : 1. None of the staff knows English. This makes it harder than expected, especially at an upscale hotel like this... More

Amazing staff. Internet a little slow but usable. Great breakfast with a lot of choice. The rooms are old but in good condition. Right next to the ocean with plenty of taxis on the door so you can go anywhere.

Situated right by the beach in the quieter area of town, I found this hotel to be excellent for My stay in Salvador. I had an ocean view room which was a great decision, as it really made the stay memorable. What a beautiful view to see everytime you walk in! The hotel itself is clean and more than adequate...

The hotel has the best location if you would spend the Carnival in Salvador! I stay at this hotel for more than 7 years in a row and they are able to handle the crowd very well. The hotel needs a lot of structural improvements, such as room maintenance, new equipments, restaurant options, etc... but, it is a very good... More

terrible rooms, very very poor. A small and old reception. Food as at low budget school. It is an old structure which needed to be rebuilt. I think that they are going to do it as if they will keep this average level soon they will loose a lot of clients who remember as it was in the past. What... More

Although the room is ok (not for that rating, for sure) the bathroom was dirty, breakfast was awful, and the service is one of the worsts i've ever seen. The crew couldn't care less about the guests. No apologies, no education, no training.

Excellent location overlooking the rocks below, with the Atlantic crashing in. We had an executive room that gave you an 180' view with a lounge area round the corner from the bedroom. Only problem was that the windows needed some attention, as they did not shut properly and were difficult to open, which I think would be due to the... More
