The staff of this hotel was great--everyone was friendly and did all they could to ensure a pleasant stay. In particular, the woman with the short dark hair at reception was especially helpful and her perfect English was comforting (certainly my travel weary tourist Portuguese was a bit worse for wear after our long terrible flight!). Food was good too and the lobby bar was convenient and we loved our lovely waitress.
The hotel is in really weird area. Lots of high rises and a lot of people who work in the high rises--a lot of wealth disparity. The beach is kind of skeevy--there was always some guy sleeping on the rocks. Its in the middle--between Rio Vermelho and Barra--but that doesnt mean it has the best of both. I'd choose one or the other. Don't be fooled by the photos--the pool's nice but it isnt a resort. It really needs a major renovation and it may have been going through one while we were there--it looked like lots of things were in the middle of being painted and the weather wasnt helping move things along. Also a staff member told me the fitness center was not open. It's not a bad place though--it's quiet and staff and food are great.
It is located at a safe place. The price is good and the service is also satisfying.
Its in a decent beach front location where you can walk in Barra neighborhood, and short taxi ride to Pelourinho. Views from the rooms are stunning. Breakfast was excellent.
It's old and worn out....no wi-fi in rooms, just wired. You may not be able to close your door in the room, so wind will be blowing throughout the night. Bring earplugs, just in case...
The helpfulness of the front desk staff and restaurant staff. The pool was in excellent condition.
