Extremely depressing looking hotel

by Sally M on 09 Oct 2016 (Business Traveller)

I had the misfortune of spending 2 nights at this hotel. Negatives 1. Airconditioner does not cool. Only has a fan function. 2. The room looks like a 1 star room from a 3rd world country 3.

Spent seven days here. Would go back, just for the sunset across the street on the beach and the excellent breakfast. Good location on the beach, WIFI OK a little slow during busy hours, best included breakfast while traveling in Brazil, helpful staff. Rooms OK but a little dated, but good a value.

You'll love the location

by Matthaus_n on 23 Nov 2015 (Solo Traveller)

I loved the location, amazing view of the ocean, nice staff. Breakfast was a lot and very good. The hotel is very clean and inexpensive. Taxis will charge you about 100 Brazilian Real which is 30-40 US dollars to take you to the airport which is 45 minutes drive.

Great Location in Salvador

by nancy j on 05 Sep 2015 (Family Traveller)

Firstly the manager of this hotel went above and beyond to assist us during our stay in Salvador. A lovely man. The hotel was in a great location right across from the local beach. Our timing was great going off season. Relatively inexpensive. Room was nice. Pool is lovely. Had a high floor with an ocean view. Great sunsets. The crowd at the beach cheers right at sunset
