The Hotel is amazing. It is locate just at the beach. The rooms are very nice, and you feel very welcome by the staff. The kitchen was probably the best in Praia do Forte. The Hotel is five minutes away by foot from the 'city centre' and easy and safe to reach by foot.

Small, cute hotel, bit tired but clean and staff very friendly and helpfull. Sometimes the language is a problem but something that can be overcome. Fabulous beach/sea views from balconies with hammock. Breakfast had good selection of cakes and pastries if that's what you like with the usual fruit and juices. There is a wee hot plate to heat through... More

A very nice hotel with a beautiful view - probably the best in Praia do Forte. Hotel was clean. Rooms had air conditioning or you could just use the ocean breeze to keep cool. Offers inclusive breakfast and afternoon tea.These were both just OK, with much of tea being left overs from breakfast. English ability of most staff was very... More

The location is absolutely fantastic, the staff is very helpful. If you like to be close to the elements and enjoy the sound of the wind and ocean, and are not worried by a little breeze going through the main balcony door, then this is the perfect place. Wifi coverage is a bit patchy.

Stayed here after a visit to Salvador. It is quite remote but that's what you should expect, very pleasant very quiet, food simple, showers hot, room clean, view to the beach fantastic. Worth a visit The main disappointment was the swimming which is only available at low tides and then in rock pools.

First of all- Praia do Forte is worth a visit- it feels like a little secret the Brazilians want to keep to themselves- it is a tropical paradise. We found a company in the historic centre of Salvador, after asking a few for quotes, which transferred us here for 180 BRL. The hotel is 2 stories high right over a... More

We have had 5 pleasant days in Praia do Forte and have enjoyed this hotel. The rooms are clean, showers hot, staff friendly and helpful, and location is terrific. Being on the beachfront is a great location with good access and lovely views. The meals in the restaurant were quite good also.

Perfect view, outstanding location, lots of attractions at foot step, bars, restaurants, projeto tamar, some shops, etc. The resort has very helpful staff, acceptable breakfast and afternoon tea for free Just in front of the resort you may do snorkeling, there are some naturals pools that in high tide you may dive in and enjoy
