Magnificent! We stayed in Iberostar Bahia the last week of February during the Carnival. The location of the Hotel in Praia do Forte is superb and we would recommend it to everyone who is touring Salvador. Our room was immaculate facing the sea and we loved spotting the dolphins. The food was delicious in all restaurants and we particularly enjoyed... More

This is a fantastic resort. There are 2 at Praia do forte but Iberostar Bahia is more beautiful and bigger than Iberostar Praia do forte which is more expensive. As soon you arrive book the restaurants. There are four: Japanese, Mediterranean, French and a steak house. The French one is the only that doesn't accept shorts or Bermudas, so is... More

I stayed in this hotel in 2013 for a convention from the company that I work for, even though the hotel is beautiful, the pools are great, beach nearby, the food is just terrible. It is also a good place to go with children and couples retreat. The rooms are clean and OK, nothing really fancy.

positive: nice location, big and clean pools, wide and almost empty beach (although the sea was a bit muddy near the beach and infested with some jellyfish), good food, very good care service for children, big room negative: on one day the room was not cleaned, although we reminded the reception about that at around midday. room safe and TV...

We bought a package using groupon and were a little suspicious with the all inclusive. It just blew our expectations. It is just fantastic place, not only nature, but the hotel amenities, the food, the drinks, the amusements. It is a fantastic place to go. We were superbly amazed. I want to go back!

Fantastic resort blessed with a perfect beach with warm water. Accommodation, leisure, service, food, entertainment, surpasses all expectation. The strongest point of this hotel is the friendliness of all the staff, besides the beauty of the resort. The weakest point is the quality of the drinks served that are not compatible with the category of the resort.

Iberostar Resort at Salvador (Brazil) is All-Inclusive Resort consisting of two adjacency Resorts in one location: Iberostar Bahia (4*) and Iberostar Praia De Forte (5*). Although they are in two different categories, but guests cannot feel any difference in terms of services, products and accommodation. Furthermore, I feel Iberostar Bahia (4*) is more comfortable than the other. The total resorts... More
