4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Excellent location. Good service and really nice room. The hotel is well maintained and the beach service is amazing!

Order a room in the second floor as thy have nice balconies and amacas to spend the afternoon looking at the sea.

Highly recommended for a couple of days is relax and sun.

Stayed October 2013

Excellent location, 50 minutes from Salvador airport and 5 minutes from Praia do Forte.

Big resort, very good food and excellent infrastructure (pools, restaurants, beach bar, kid's club etc)

Rooms are quite nice, the only comment about them: depending on the category of your room, it can be very far from the main hotel area (reception).

Tips for families with small children: you can ask for a stroller at reception (they lend you for the duration of your stay) or a golf cart ride from/to your room.

Stayed September 2013, traveled with family

We thought it would be a pity to be so far from Salvador, but as soon as you are in, you just want to stay forever.

Restaurants are excellent, breakfast is crazy, very nice monkeys around, wild Life just next door: iguanes, turtles and the TAMAR project, very nice Praia do Forte village....

Room: just perfect

Room Tip: Not too close from the restaurant (was not our case)

This is undoubtedly the best place to stay in Praia do Forte, and I would stay there again. However, the lousy service is nothing short of a nuisance. It takes some twenty minutes to attract a waiter´s attention at their pool bar (even as there are four or five talking among themselves). They must have had serious security problems for the way they treat people invited by their own guests to dinner - absolutely outrageous and ill-mannered. It suffers from the same problem of other great hotels in Northeastern Brazil, five-star facilities and one-star services. But still recommended if you can just use the pool, beach and enjoy the surroundings.

We have been there with our 7,5 and 17 months kids. Lots of activities for them, the food is very adequate for travelling with kids and the general feeling is that everything is family oriented. Our kids spend most of their time with us because we have been out the week before. So being every time that they were invited for acitivities they would insist on being with us. nevertheless that never stoped the friendly child activities monitors to try to insert them in the children acitivities. It was a very enjoyable stay but there were jelyfish at this time of the year due to the bad weather...the beach is great and you always feel safe with the kids due to the long strip of sand. everything is very eco oriented and the kids saw lots of animals around the grounds of the hotel. the employees were more than friendly and helpfull. do visit the neighbour vilage and ask for a tuc tuc to drive you there. Project tamar (saving the turtles) is in the village. In the end i would deraly recommend it to families. the only downside was that there is one or two things that should be reviewed by maintenance.

Room Tip: all of them :) would choose the ones between the restaurant and the spa

Romantic scape to chic beach resort for the weddings anniversary celebrations was magical. Everything worked nice and smooth from the airport transfer (in and out) to the dinners and local attractions but at their cost. The staff is very well trained, courteous and efficient, but sometimes they are flooded by people checking in or out and then the service would be slow. No problem you can wait drinking fresh coconut water and enjoying the sea and grarden view. Breakfast and dinner was very good with wide selection of foods but lack of low fat dishes and no sugar desserts. The room master category was large and confortable also the bathroom and cleaning on average. The premium rooms in Sectors 5 to 9 are isolated, avoid them. Many swimming pools including one for adults only but not completely respected by guests. Very stylish champagne bar and very good service at the sunbeds in the beach. Even crowded you can find a spot to relax and tanning. Many kinds of aquatic playing for all ages, but charged per person. You can go walking to the village, 20 minutes around 3/4 mile, or pay US$5 to a tuc-tuc ride but be careful as some of those adapted motorcycle seems not very safe. The village is very nice plenty of options to eat, to shop (local and brand stuff) and to hang out but its crowded at night. Projeto Tamar is the marine turtle center to visit. Definitely we will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms master spa in the spa area are quiet and calm. The master room worths its price. For family wi...
