“Bring your own chair”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2008

If you like a quiet beach, the 4th beach at Morro S. Paulo is an excellent choice. But don't imagine that you can hear the sea while sitting on the beach near this resort or next to the swimming pool.
All day long loud music. Terrible. The lounge chairs don't sport mattresses. The management provides you with an inch thick piece of blue foam. Eco means that you can have 2 towels maximum at the swimming pool.
The offered massage is a scandalous rip-off.
The strangest thing about our room was that there were not any chairs. Only a hammock outside. But when we asked for chairs, we got very comfortable ones.
The breakfast buffet was perfect. dinner so-so. But when we complained about a particular terrible dish (the fish was probably off) the manager subtracted that dish from the bill.
The staff was helpful, but most of them speak hardly any English.
The transport to the village we considered adventurous, no reason for complaint. But we recommend that you don't take that "bus "right after lunch or dinner. No springs at all. But we didn't mind that part.

  • Liked — the island itself

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2006

we stayed here 3 nights early Nov with a 3-year old child, after a week of touring in the State of Bahia. When we arrived at the property after 1 1/2 hour of bumpy ride, we were relieved to find a place so peaceful, with coconut palm trees to provide the shade. The resort is located on the fourth beach which means more or less one hour walking via the beach,if you want to get to Morro itself. Or you can take a shuttle at the hotel reception which runs from the airport to Morro and back.
The main attraction of the resort is the pool, which is beautifully shaped with different levels, ideal for children of all ages. They provide bar service and you can order from the restaurant menu for lunch.
They also provide loungers on the beach, but it was pretty deserted when we arrived. The problem is, and we found this to be the case for a big part of the coastal range of Bahia, that the beach gets entirely flooded during tide and when the sea withdraws, it is covered with sea weed, leaves and sometimes even tree branches. (But maybe this has to do with the season?)
The rooms: each bungalow is divided into 2 rooms which are spacious and clean, with a comfortable bathroom and a balcony.
In the morning, you can start with a buffet breakfast with a huge selection of juices, bread and cookies, eggs and (tropical) fruit. For dinner, the restaurant was pretty empty since most of the guests took the shuttle to Morro.Dinner is à-la-carte and is of good quality, but choice is rather limited.
There is absolutely nothing to do on the fourth beach, so, if you want some entertainment, you will need to go to Morro.
All by all, a good 4-star resort which can be recommended!

  • Liked — lovely pool
  • Disliked — far from Morro
