We stayed in Iberostar Bahia the last week of February during the Carnival.
The location of the Hotel in Praia do Forte is superb and we would recommend it to everyone who is touring Salvador.
Our room was immaculate facing the sea and we loved spotting the dolphins. The food was delicious in all restaurants and we particularly enjoyed the Japanese, Meditteranean and Colonial ones. The sea was rough and we could not swim (mind you this is Atlantic and not Mediterranean!) but there were several enormous and fantastic pools and a variety of amenities catering for everyone. The whole ambience is exotic full of palm trees and flowers. The staff was friendly and helpful and we would like to express a special thanks to Gabriella and Louise for their hospitality and kindness since we were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversrary. Despite the fact the hotel is enormous in size there is personal attention to all your needs. The only thing we wish is if more of the staff spoke English. Since they are preparing for the 2014 Football Championship it is highly recommended that more Brazilians in the tourism industry start practising their English if they want to have more tourists.
If you are a nature lover try to avoid Salvador town and stay in Iberostar Bahia the most fantastic Hotel in the area.
