First of all- Praia do Forte is worth a visit- it feels like a little secret the Brazilians want to keep to themselves- it is a tropical paradise. We found a company in the historic centre of Salvador, after asking a few for quotes, which transferred us here for 180 BRL. The hotel is 2 stories high right over a... More

We have had 5 pleasant days in Praia do Forte and have enjoyed this hotel. The rooms are clean, showers hot, staff friendly and helpful, and location is terrific. Being on the beachfront is a great location with good access and lovely views. The meals in the restaurant were quite good also.

Perfect view, outstanding location, lots of attractions at foot step, bars, restaurants, projeto tamar, some shops, etc. The resort has very helpful staff, acceptable breakfast and afternoon tea for free Just in front of the resort you may do snorkeling, there are some naturals pools that in high tide you may dive in and enjoy

This is the fifth time we stayed at Porto da Lua, as other contributors mentioned the rooms are ok, the service is good (although they take their time for everything as in most tropical destinations) but the most important thing is that you are "pe na areia" (with your feet on the beach). It is ideal for families with small... More

I've been to this hotel for the last 7 years. The rooms are OK. The service is very good. But the real thing is to be in front of the beach. Amazing to wake up there and just open the window! Very close to the vila too, which is convenient at night if you do not want to have dinner... More

We stayed at this pousada for 3 nights on whim and we enjoyed every minute of it! Staff is super friendly and rooms are very big (if you can ask for a room on the 2nd floor with the view on the beach as you have a lot more privacy than the ground floor and 1st floor). There's an area... More
