“Romantics pure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We stayed for three nights at this beautifully situated and well-kept hotel. It was a pleasure to watch the garden with flowers and birds from our little veranda. The room was clean and fully equipped. The only negative experience was the strange construction "windows with folding doors", which were difficult to handle. The breakfast was very rich and tasty, all personnel was friendly and helpful and we think that this hotel really offers value for money.
Another advantage is the short distance to the little folklore village with lots of shops and restaurants, the beautiful beach (in the weekend somewhat crowded) and the Seaturtle Reserve. This place is so colourful and interesting that travellers can already enjoy here tropical atmosphere and romantics of the region not far from the town of Salvador do Bahia.
Obviously, this hotel needs insider knowledge - the more as it is difficult to get there. About 55 km from the Airport of Salvador, a taxi or a rented car is needed to get to this phantastic place.
If somebody dreams of a romantic beach at the South Sea - just 10 min of a walk and you are there!

We were very pleasantly surprised by the comfort, cleanliness and location of this pousada. The location was fantastic, a 5 minute walk to the beach. The room was fantastic with 2 verandas, a hydromassage and a very large couch on one of the verandas. The staff were always very attentive and helpful. There is free parking on premises. The only minor drawbacks were the lack of television stations, and that the wifi was very poor.

I would highly recommend this pousada to anyone staying in Praia do Forte

Room Tip: Upper floor suite with hydromassage is the way to go...

We stayed at this pousada 1 week in November. The rooms were simple and quite small, although very clean and tidy. The only negative point to this hotel would be the noise in the evening and night. We traveled with a small child and noise from the car park next door was waking us up at night.

However the food was great, pool was lovely. And the hotel is in a excellent location - about 5 min walk to the village and 12 min walk to the beach. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Excellent pousada for those looking for quiet but not isolated at Praia do Forte. Installations are top quality but still with a rustic charm. Breakfast is divine - everything fresh and delicious. The rooms are well equipped, isolated from noise and very comfortable. Almost everything is at waling distance, including the beaches.

Room Tip: Rooms at ground floor have a charming varanda that opens to the pool, but even though are quiet and...

My partner and I spent 2 nights in this very pleasant, rustic Pousada. It was just a few minutes walk to the village, 10 minutes walk to the beach. Very good location, our room was very clean and comfortable, with a frigobar, airconditioning, cable TV, and a balcony with a hamock, overlooking the lovely swimming pool. All the staff was very friendly and the staff at reception speak English!! The breakfast was plentiful and fresh and very nice. They also have a good restaurant and Bar where we enjoyed sitting in the warm evenings sipping very tasty caipirinha. We wish we had more time to stay longer and we definetely recommend this Pousada, especially for young families. Kids really enjoyed the swimming pool and consequently could be a little noisy as kids do on holidays . They even have a small play area for very young children with toys. We highly reccomend a visit to Praia do Forte which is a beautiful holiday destination in my opinion, and stay at this nice Pousada.

This Hotel was about 5 minutes from the village centre and the beach and we felt the location was fine but maybe it would have been better to stay more centrally and next to the beach where we could have had the benefit of sea breezes.......The Hotel was spotless and comfortable with friendly helpful staff. The breakfast was just Ok and no evening dinner seemed to be on offer as the Hotel was quite empty and quiet. Nice pool to relax by.

4 Night stay while on vacation in area. Room was a small king bed overlooking pool on second floor. Property has a rustic feel with a lot of wood, very clean and comfortable. Water had a foul smell from time to time but we used an air freshener to help, Room had a small fridge which was very useful for our bevs.

They serve a beautiful breakfast each morning with a lot to choose from, fresh fruits, breads and hot foods choices. We ate at the on site restaurant 3 times and enjoyed each meal very much.

Service by staff was stellar with standouts being Weydson and all front desk staff. I can't say enough positive things about everyone here it made our stay just perfect! I would highly suggest this convenient located pousada while visiting the Praia Do Forte area. Within a short walk to the town as well :)

Room Tip: Try to score a larger room if possible and within budget, ours was small. Face pool.
