Tivoli Ecoresort Praia do Forte
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 December 2011

The resort is perfect in every category. The food was top shelf and offered a local Bahia flare. The grounds were immaculate and the beach just perfect. The rooms were VERY clean with great light and well designed. I have traveled and stayed in many countries and this is a top shelf location. The price is steep but you certainly get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Avoid being close to the center as there was a live band one light until 1:00 AM that kept us awake.

Beautiful hotel, nice beach, friendly staff - it was the perfect end to our Brazilian holiday! The range of activities is brilliant, and the staff really encourage everyone. I would really recommend anyone who stays here to try some of the activities - you will love them! Good facilities, clean, great food... I could go on for a long time...!

Maybe my favourite Resort Hotel in Brazil. The food is delicious offering daily regional specialities (dinner and breakfast are included). A calm resort with an excelent Spa. The swiming pools are gorgeous and the service is warm and kind.
Relax and drink a coconut water under a kioske at the beach. Time goes slowly there.

We had a nice and relaxing stay and were generally happy. The service and the food were good and the amenities were clean and well kept. Because this is an expensive establishment, one is well advised to look around for less pricey alternatives, especially if one wants to stay any good length of time in Praia do forte. Wi-fi, cocktails and alcoholic beverages are add-ons to be paid for extra, as are lunches and, of course, spa sessions and excursions. Over all, for a mature couple in need of a short break 'away from it all' like us, this resort offered some of the best of what we wished for. We stayed 5 nights in low season, spending most of our short holiday overlooking the ocean or dipping into its waves. Because it was so pleasant lounging next to the beach, we never even used a single one of the 8 swimming pools or spas. The bedroom was generally clean and quiet, as was the bathroom, and the bed very comfortable. We would recommend this hotel and the nearby Praia do forte also to women travelling alone, to parents with young children (the entertainment for kids looked great), groups (conferences), and to older couples. What we found less than perfect was the following: we did not find a telephone number of the resort on the website. They said they would remedy that but just in case, here it is: [--]. Also, there was no indication as to how to get to the resort if not by car (it is more or less an hour from the airport after all). More or less by chance we found Christian a great and trustworthy taxidriver you can ring under this number: [--]. Other improvements we thought would be good to introduce would be: opening the ocean-side swimmingpool until 11.00 pm. Selecting a good, affordable housewine which would offer a good basis from which otherwise to venture into the (extensive) winelist.

Room Tip: We had a room not too distant from the main restaurant and we were quite happy with the views and al...

The hotel has great accommodations. The location is very nice, on the beach with a low frequency of bathers. Next, there is a village with a very varied nightlife. The facilities (swimming pools, restaurants, gardens, crafts) are well maintained and well balanced with nature. The hotel only fails on time-consuming receiving and and confusion of information given by staff.

Room Tip: Accommodations near the reception are very good and are close to the main attractions of the hotel.

My husband an I spent an amazing 7 days here on our honeymoon after a week of travelling around Brazil. This hotel was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for: great food, great service, great cocktails and a great room. The buffet breakfast was brilliant and the dinner buffet had a great selection of dishes and the steak was out of this world! The spa treatments we had were lovely and relaxing, again with great service. The hotel staff were incredibly attentive and friendly, always helpful and made a huge effort to ensure our stay there was comfortable. We went in the low season (October) and the hotel was at 20% capacity which was great as we practically had the place to ourselves! Although we were not given an upgrade our room was amazing anyway, a massive comfortable bed and a great bathroom (had been recently decorated). We were also given complimentary champagne, breakfast in bed and use of the spa which was great. All over a great place- defo recommend it to those looking for a romantic getaway!

The hotel is very nice and well located. For children are perferct to spend vacations there, the Careta Careta Club is a huge place with excellent facilities.
However, there is a lack in the hotel service, it was not a service that we expect from a resort: most of the time, the staff didn't know how to behaviour and other times they were not aware about some important information.
I am sure it is a fault from the hotel, It is really important to develop their staff and then the Tivoli can become a great resort.
