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

Great thing about this hotel is its location. It's located right at the beach. And all rooms face the ocean, which brings a lot of advantages: ocean views, ocean breeze and also you can sleep listening to the waves. Great experience. Another good thing about this hotel is its price. It is not so expensive as other options in the... More

If you want to stay in Praia do Forte, this is the hotel where to stay ! It is the only one directly at the beach, the sand starts already in the hotel premises and if you walk fast enough across it, you won't burn your feet before entering the wonderful ocean waters and enjoy some nice snorkeling. Once tired... More

Balcony was a great option and relaxing near the beach very charming. The town of Praia do Forte was fun and full of shops and restaurants. Beach was pretty good. Not the best ever, but more than fun. I would recommend this place and stay there again.
