Looking for a beachfront hotel


My friend and I are going to Salvador in March for 5 nights. We are looking for a hotel that is beachfront (or across one street from the beach) with a nice-sized pool. A plus would be somewhere that has restaurants and bars at it, or a selection nearby. We want somewhere resort-like, not a hostel or so much a simple hotel. We were contemplating Iberostar Bahia which is an all-inclusive though far from the city. Can anyone recommend something similar, even if not fully inclusive, closer to the city? Doesn't matter WHERE exactly in Salvador, be it by the airport or not, we're not picky about that.

Thank you!

The Othon has a pool and it fronts the water but its a fair way froma swimmable beach.

The Sol Barra in Port da Barra has a pool and it's directly opposite the beach and there are plenty of bar and restaurant options locally. It's not all inclusive in fact its primarily pitched at domestic tourists. That said it's a decent enough hotel and you would find it accomodates most of your needs.
