Joe Santini is the consummate host, lively, friendly and helpful and he makes sure his team have the same approach. We stayed for 16 nights during the football world cup and had a great time with all the help and support we needed. Our room was spacious and bright with plenty of room for you and your things.

Location is great, best beach of Salvador. The staff is helpful, multi-lingual and well traveled. The restaurant Portal do Mar and Pizzaria Dolce Vita (in house restaurants) were excellent.

We spent 4 great nights in Salvador in a 2 bedroom apartment at Manga Rosa. It overlooked the vibrant Barra bay beach. The location was excellent with a nautical museum and oldest lighthouse in South America, great beaches on the Bay and Atlantic Ocean, excellent restaurants, and a complete supermarket within a 5 minute walk. It is a quick bus... More

We were a group of 4 friends who stayed at a 2 bedroom apartment of Manga Rosa during carnival 2012. I recently joined trip advisory and had to share the experience to warn people. In regards to the apartment, it was good, clean and at a great location. It was comfortable and the AC worked well, the evening front desk... More

Dear Readers, We always wish to see our clients having a good time, while in salvador. All we do is to serve as agents in order to obtain tickets. We DO NOT control the hours or the parades. We provided tickets for our guest to ride on top of a Trio-Eletrico (very hard to get on them). The client did... More

As a composite of atmosphere, service, and staff, the Pousada Manga Rosa clears a full rating. From the uber competent desk staff to the proprietor Ulysses, the team could arrange anything at a minutes notice, clearly having a firm grasp on operationalizing a tourists trip to maximize pleasure and comfort. Also, when speaking to others in the Barra, each knew... More

I second everything Ron B wrote, including the absent toilet seat. I will also add that I eventually gave up on trying to get my trashed picked up (the instructions in the hallway sternly require it to be put out at certain hours, but not once did this occur); and the breakfast was awful by Brazilian standards, "served" by some...

These clients were upset because they were supposed to stay somewhere else and their unit was double booked. They were sent to us because they were homeless. We are located in one of Salvador's best beaches, however, we DO NOT control the streets, the people who visit the neighborhood. Salvador is multi-race society, with rich and poor people. You are...

Best to stay in the main house. The suites looked appealing but we are still missing a toilet seat and no hot water in one shower. Our toaster does not work and when you ask for assistance it is "being looked in to". The coffee pot has a big crack in it and will probably break during our stay. The... More
