My partner and I stayed at Estrela do Mar at the beginning and end of a two week trip through Bahia state. We booked last minute, so we were in a standard room on the first floor for a few days, which was simple and spare, and then a superior room on the second floor for the last days, which... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in this pousada for three nights and loved it there! We felt welcome from the moment we walked in. Fast check in, a clear explanation in English about everything followed by a run through the room showing us how to use everything. The room was clean with a comfortable double bed and a twin bed...

My wife and I stayed for three nights at Estrela Do Mar during the Confederations Cup. The location is fantastic - just a couple of minutes from the beach and the Barra Lighthouse with plenty of good restaurants and watering holes along the front. The pousada itself was wonderful. All staff extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast - lots of it,... More

I came across the Estrela through the Lonely Planet reviews. The depiction fitted my expectatios. I was for the first time travelling to Salvador, and on my own. That was back in 2007. Because of my connecting flights, I arrived in Salvador at midnight. I had organized for Estrela to have a taxi pick me up, but by schedule I... More

We stayed 10 nights March 2013. Very clean comfortable accommodation in walking distance to beach, many restaurants and bars. Breakfast served daily and included fresh fruit and bread with plenty of choice and unlimited tea and coffee. Whilst rooms are simply furnished the bed was extremely comfortable with soft pillows and cotton sheets which where changed daily. The housekeepers where... More

I had a disturbing experience at Pousada Estrela do Mar. It was the last night of my trip in Bahia therefore I was totally tuned to the (fantastic) local way of living and doing things. Besides I am a native speaker of Portuguese so there was no language issues. The Pousada is superbly located in Barra one of the seaside... More

I would like to thank this reviewer for all the nice things he said about the Pousada. I was very disappointed to get a bad review regarding customer services. This is the first time somebody has complained on here about a member of my staff. The receptionist in question was suffering from a severe allergy that night hence the sunglasses... More

I spent 10 days recently at Pousada Estrela do Mar and was very happy with my choice of a safe place to stay in the Farol do Barra district of Salvador. My room was very clean, comfortable and attractive with an excellent air conditioner and mini-bar with inexpensive drinks available and replenished daily. The location of the pousada just 1/2...

I slept in the Pousada for 4 nights. All was perfect. The room is basic, but clean and comfortable. The place is clean and silent. Every morning I had a really yummy breakfast with fresh fruit and fruit juice, with eggs and all the good things you need for breakfast. The people working in the pousada is friendly, kind, helpful... More

Disappointed with our stay at Pousada Estrela do Mar, from all the excellent reviews I had hopes of a nice room to spend our 3 nights in Salvador but our street facing room was extremely noisy from very early in the morning to late at night as well as the noise from within the Pousada itself making it very difficult...

The hotel is a real find. It's remarkable good value, beautiful spacious room, great breakfast and attentive service at reception. I would have stayed longer but it was full. Meters distance from the beautiful beaches. Thoroughly recommended.
