Very good crew, close to the beach and a nice and relaxing pool! The other makes you feel at home! The room was ok, but better than other hotels of the region. The breakfeast was good with lots of fruits and cakes. If you are not looking for a resort, it might be a good choice!

Since the beggining, the negotiation was done by email with very quickly answers. All the employees were very polited and happy to provide the service, and the location of the hotel is amazing, walking 5 minutes up to the main street or 5 minutes to the natural pools. There`s a small, but good pool and a beautifull garden.

We chose the hotel purely through Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. Really clean, airy and spacious feel to the hotel (and the rooms). Ideally, make sure you get a room overlooking the pool or the garden (although not a ground floor room, as people can see right in and you are more likely to be woken by early... More

The hotel is close to the beach and the village, where you can find all the restaurants, bars and shops. The hotel staff is really friendly and create great "caipiroskas". The rooms are comfortable and clean and the pool area is excellent.

Porto Zarpa Hotel was simply beautiful, close to the shopping, restuarants, and Projecta Tamar, also only 5 mins walk to the beach. The rooms are very compfy, and made even better is the pool side room with a view. The food, (although eating is generally done in the streets of praia do Forte) is of good quality, esp. the breakfasts... More

Our recent trip to Brazil was nothing short of brilliant, while at Praia do Forte, about an hour and a half north of Salvador, we stayed at the Porto Zarpa hotel.

This hotel has a good vibe and is recommended if you aren't looking for high end. The place has a friendly set-up, the rooms are large, clean and the airco is modern. Good wifi is free. The beach is not far, and there is a small swimmingpool for a quick dip to escape the heat of the sun. Breakfast was... More

This was our last stop on a 22 day tour of Brazil. We had deliberately planned a beach and sun stop to make up for the hectic schedule, and this place did not let us down. If you are used to the Mediterranean style of small hotel, you won't be disappointed. It's a simple place, with basic rooms (including air... More
