Traveling through Brazil for the World Cup, my friend and I encountered a lot of different hotels, hostels, and Airbnb accommodations... and Village Novo was hands down the best! Each room is different so you never know what you are going to get, the breakfast is a perfect way to start your day, and Brian (American) and his staff do... More

Stayed here in late November 2011. Location was okay, with Porto da Barra right at the doorstep. We were given the beach/street-facing double room on the top floor. Room and ensuite bathroom were really nice, and came with a spacious balcony. There were art pieces throughout the building, including a pretty neat one in our room. The place was chic... More

Living in and traveling Brasil fairly extensively, I have experienced the gamut of hotels, pousadas and apartments. I was very pleased with Village Novo. Village Novo Beach Suites is well organized and managed. The rooms are clean, tasteful, with all the desired amenities. It is within easy walking and transit distance to the Pelourinho, Lower City, Campo Grande, Ondina, Graca,... More

If you come to Salvador, you won't go wrong if you stay at the Village Novo Beach Suites. I was lucky to find the Village Novo as I left a dull and boring hotel located on the same street. When I looked into the main area used for breakfast and a lounge during the day , I initially thought it... More

The location is prefect if you plan on spending most of your time on the beach or around the beach area. The staff is very nice and helpful. The inclusive breakfast is better than many other B&B's. Restaurants are right outside. We recommend the top level room, which is a one bedroom with living space and full kitchen. It had... More

First off they speak english in a place where not many people do not. It is right on the beach. I do agree with the other reviews that say the front rooms are loud but with the windows and doors closed it wasn't so bad. The owner and his wife took good care of my wife and I. I was... More

I have stayed in a half dozen hotels or pousadas here in the neighborhood of Barra in Salvador, Bahia, and none of them compares to this special little hotel on the beach. First of all, you have the owners, who are stellar people that love to have their morning coffee with guests and give them great advice on what to... More

Four of us spent 3 nights here recently after our Amazon River cruise. After a long flight from Manaus, we checked in about 1 a.m. Must admit that the first impression of our accommodations for 3 nights was not impressive -- 2 homeless men sleeping on the sidewalk with 2 mangy-looking dogs right outside the door. One man got up... More

Two senior couples spent 3 nights here, arriving about 1AM after flying from Manaus. First impression wasn't that good - 2 homeless men stretched out on the sidewalk close to the entrance; one got up & asked for $$. Young, non-English speaking female was at the front desk. Our room was on the 3rd floor - requiring hauling our bags... More
