I was there in March 20th, 2012 for 8 days with my spouse and my two little kids (3 and 4 years old) and I really appreciated everything on the Resort. Very nice structure, friendly staff, good shows at night. If you're thinking about a place to chill out and relax with the family, that's the place. We just left the hotel for 4 hours during our whole stay to visit the Projeto Tamar and the Praia do Forte Village.
Pros - swimming pools, Kids Starclub, staff, breakfast chocolate donut and the Japanese Restaurants
Cons - I didn't like the sparkling wine they were serving, and, In my opinion it could have more seafood in the regular menu.

Room Tip: The 2nd building is in the middle of the resort and its easier to access all places and restaurants...

I spent a week at Ibero Star Bahia from december 2011 to january 2012. I was there with my 4 year old nephew and others adults.
Food is great, Japonese and Mediterranean restaurants are amazing.
I love the fact that it has a pool for people that want to party and another pool for the ones that want to enjoy the silence.
The beach is beautiful.
If you go there you must go to its spa, it has some great pools and massage rooms.
Too bad one week goes by too fast.

I've been in Iberostar Praia do Forte and i can tell you that is a very good resort. I've been in "all inclusive" sistem and, normaly, with all inclusive, the food or the drinks are not the best quality. In Iberostar the food was great and the drinks (cocktails like cipirinha) at the bar were very good. The rooms are great, mainly if you have sea view. It's easy to be lost in the first day, because the resort is very big. The beach is nice, but it could be danger. Be sure that it's the green flag. The only problem is that you are at almost 100 kms from S.Salvador, but you can walk through the beach and visit Praia do Forte. It's a very nice place to visit.

Visited with my wife in July, the weather was generally good - it rained on two days out of a fortnight and then only for short periods. The staff were all friendly and helpful - the entertainment team (as anywhere) tried to get everyone to join in but not to excess. The food in the main restaraunt was very good with plenty of variety and I couldn't fault the specialist restaraunts either. The trips were well organised and very interesting - especially the tour that took in the river cruise, rain-forest walk, trip to the village and to the Fort itself.
As another reviewer pointed out the divesity of nationality of guests and langauges added to the enjoyment - my wife speaks French & Spanish and even my Portugeuse was understood.

The best moments - going to the beach after midnight and watching all the fireflies in the hedge while sipping wine..... finding a moth the size of my hand on the wall by our room ... and a hummmingbird hovering right in front of my wife, as if posing, while she took a picture.

Would go backk tomorrow if we could...

Room Tip: I think all rooms seem to be good, I didn't hear anyone complain

Went on a one-week holidays with my wife and our daugthers (4 and 1,5 years old) on October. Except for the weather that was bad for half of our stay, our vacations were really good. The place is very nice and big. Everything is very well maintained, clean and tidy (buildings, restaurants, green areas, pool, etc). It has 2 big pools, one with a baby-pool on the side and a jacuzzi, which was vey useful for our little one. It has a few places to eat and drink during the day and night, and waiters went around the pool offering you drinks, shrimps or fruit salads. The main and the snacks restaurants are just fine; food is tasty but nothing really amazing. The speacialty restaurants (we visited the mediterranean and the japanese) were a little bit better in terms of quality (reserves are required). The people is friendly, not only the entretainers ("star friends") and they make your stay confortable. The activities are repetitive and basic, but they are ok. A special mention is worth for the mini-club guys who organized the activities for kids. Their energy and creativity to get the children involved even with rainy days, was ideal for our eldest daughter and also helped us to get some time for ourselves. Unlike other places we went in Brazil, here everyone speaks many languages so you can communicate easily. The only thing that wasn't that good was the beach. The wather is nice and blue, but the waves are too big/strong near the shore so we couldn't get into the sea to play with our kids. Just watched and washed our feet. The sand isn't that good either, as other places in Brazil.Overall, a nice experience.
