The rooms and the breakfast were good and the lobby was very good (spacious and well maintained). They had a viewing room for the World Cup games. The view of the beach was good.
When I booked, the booking said Wifi was available everywhere and free. When I got there it wasn't free in the rooms (only in the lobby) but I was told that since I used Booking.com (via Kayak), it would be free. I had to go every night and have them give me access to wifi in the room (instead of providing it for my 5 days in one shot). They tried to charge me for it at the end of the stay but I didn't pay for it writing a note explaining that my booking confirmation stated it was for free. The location was not too safe at night.
Quite convenient location if you want a mix between a city break and beach holiday in Salvador. Clean and spacious rooms. Small but nice pool, gym and massage on offer. You can book a very good boat trip to the islands in Bahia bay in the hotel reception.
This is a hotel mainly used by Brazilians, so not much English spoken. Staff not always helpful - we had booked 2 rooms but only 1 room was ready for us. Nearby beach is small and hard to access from hotel. If you want to eat/drink in the Pelourinho it tends to be a pricey taxi ride.
everything especially the staff were very pleasant
Rooms were comfortable and the staff was very caring and helpful. Breakfast was the best part of the stay.
Though I was on a non-smoking floor, one of the guests smoked continuously and the smell of his smoke was annoying. The hotel staff needs to enforce the non-smoking rules.
nice room with view over sea
terrible food. No choice inrestaurant for evening meal a la carte - only the grande buffet.
nice pool area/views, comfortable rooms
the restaurant did not have a lot of atmoshere
