We found it tricky to know how to choose a hotel in Porto Seguro but we were glad we chose Flamingo Beach. We wanted to be near the beach but most of the other places along Beira Mar, the beachfront road (5-15mins drive from town) are what I'd call 'mega resorts' which aren't my style. Being the winter off-season, this stretch was relatively empty and it was nice to stay one street back from the beach in a relatively intimate hotel of approx. 25 rooms across 2 floors. The desk staff, Victor Hugo and Sylvie, were pleasant and helpful throughout. The price was affordable and it was easy to get to and from town when we wanted to. The lobby and garden are attractive, in a kind of 'tropical, Balinese style'; decor. The pool is quite small but serves its purpose. The room itself was OK, nothing to rave about, but had a decent bed and clean bathroom.
On the downside, the TV had no cable and only 2 functioning stations, the wifi was not the fastest and, because were no screens on the windows, and a slightly ill-fitting door, mosquitoes were a problem. The long list of 'house rules' - on a rather intimidating laminate in the room - stated that you can't use a bathroom towel for the pool or to take to the beach, and the hotel couldn't offer other towels. This was an inconvenience for us as were travelling with limited gear. Another rule was that you couldn't consume food bought from elsewhere in their garden/seated area - but the Flamingo didn't serve/offer food (other than potato chips/crisps).
