My family recently had the pleasure of spending 2 whole weeks at this hotel. I regularly review on tripadvisor and do not hand excellent reviews on all fronts lightly, but without hesitation I will for this wonderful small hotel.

We spent the last three nights of a hectic 3 week tour of Brazil here and it was exactly what we needed. The reception staff on arrival were so friendly but were shy about speaking English which they did beautifully, we were made to feel very welcome. We had a room on the second floor, this was large, clean and... More

Our 2 weeks at the Pousada were absolutely wonderful. We were a family party of 5 - grandmother, couple and 2 children 9&6. The location of the hotel is excellent as you only have walk across the lawn onto the beach. There is a magical reef just offshore where you can walk at low tide and it has pools you... More

Beautiful place and lovely staff make this a great destination, however, until they solve a serious vibration issue stemming from their water pumps (or whatever it may be), staying in room 211 is what I imagine living in a fridge would be like, minus the cold (the AC is very good though, so could be achieved!). In addition to the... More

I have stayed at Pousada Porto da Lua in my recent visit to Brazil. I booked this hotel based on the reviews and the pictures in their website. The hotel was more expensive than other but we decided for this one as the pictures and reviews. I was very disappointed with this hotel. The problem started when we were arriving... More

After a few quick and fun filled days in Salvador, it was time for some relaxation in Praia do Forte to celebrate our one year anniversary. We came here because of the surf nearby (for my husband) and fell in love with the beauty all around us. The hotel is right on the beach -- we had a third floor... More

We had a very nice stay at this Pousada. Located directly (10m) at the beach of Praia do Forte! Good food, nice and clean rooms. Breakfast offering was fine. Two minor points: almost noboday speaks English there, so brush up your portuguese. The last 2km of the road to the Pousada is a very bumpy road with big water-filled holes... More

Attractive small hotel with comfortable accommodation. Very helpful and attentive staff, but with limited Englsh. The restaurant was excellent with a superb menu. Huge breakfast, and the plus of afternoon tea. The hotel is on the beach but you have to walk some distance to get to an area of sea that isnt rocky. To get to the town involves... More

A wonderful small eco-hotel in a nice village. Sunrise over the sea, soft warm waves for swimming and diving. A wide selection of fresh local foods and brazilian pastry for breakfast, an architect's marvel as bedroom designed by famous Wilson Netto. Friendly faces at the reception and at the bar that serves excellent Caipirinhas. Plus, there is the friendly Swiss... More

Porto da Lua Pousada, Praia Do Forte, Bahia - Brasil This is the most charming Pousada. A tri level building with large verandas that over look the ocean. The hammock is a nice touch. Being right on the ocean makes this beautiful inn perfect for exploring the beach. The location is on the extreme southeastern end of the community so... More
