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

My wife and I have stayed here on several occasions over the past ten years. It is one of several pousadas in the aldeia dos pescadores, all giving good value, but this one is perfectly located on the beach. Breakfast is included as well as afternoon tea. The pousada is comfortable, the service is good the breakfast ample, the restaurant... More

I loved everything about staying at Porto da Lua. Jamaima was really helpful in organising an excellent guide for me and all the staff were charming. The location is ideal, right on the idyllic beach of Praia do Forte. In the morning, you can walk out of your door and almost have the beach to yourself. Also, the resort in... More

This is a nice pousada,with a great location right on the beach and good value for money. It is next door to Pousada Farol das Tartarugas (also by the beach), a few houses down from Projeto Tamar and 5 minutes walk to the village. The sea in Praia do Forte is warm and colour and visibility vary greatly with tides,... More

This pousada is really wonderful and it deserves 1st place on TA. Everything about it is great: location, rooms, food, service, sunbeds outside, the beach. That's why I cannot believe the water!!!! I don't understand why people do not mention it in their reviews!!! Besides the ugly color of the water (Atlantic ocean) that is greyish dirty-lool-like greenish something, there... More
