Great resort with amazing infrastructure. Very nice pools. Excellent resort for family especially with small kids. Food is ok. Drinks are great. Try to stay in the building number 6 for best location in the resort. Services are fine but not great.

I've been to Iberostar Bahia 6 months ago with my wife and kids, and decided to come back and try Iberostar Praia do Forte together with 6 friends / couples and their kids. Excellent place for such kind of trip. I haven't seen a lot of differences between both resorts. Maybe this one had better alcohol plus the Spa, but... More

Bahia beaches are the best with the vast sand, warm waters, nice temperatures and coconut tress. Clean and warm waters. There were waves but no currents.

We have came here in a family vacations plan. We have been here before and the service and the hotel is no longer what it used to be. Bad quality, few personnel, hiding and not providing high quality drinks and food, and mean service for the same price as the top quality hotels. Even though we have complained they never... More

It is worth a quite long trip,approx.45 min away from Salvador airport . 6 swimming polos,one of them with a bar and a lovely one for kids. Good food,some thematic RESTAURANTS .Free access to THE neighbor hotel Iberostar Bahia where THE japonese Restaurant Sakura (Benihana style)is very recommendable.
