Stayed here on business in Salvador for a week in January. This hotel is interesting, but quite nice in a good way. Although there are some things that it could do better or that just might be what you expect from a hotel in Brazil as this was my first trip to the country.

Upon arrival check in was fast and efficient and very helpful sorting out details and dealing with our request for a late check out from the hotel.

The room was standard fair nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed all was clean and well maintained. The nicest part was the balcony with a great view over the ocean and Salvador city in the distance.

We spent most of the time in the hotel when not working and this was pretty good. There is plenty to do in the hotel with a great pool area and small games room with table tennis in it. There is also a gym which is a public gym so slightly scary and not like a standard hotel gym. I walked in and walked out pretty quickly.

The grounds are nice with a running track in place which you could run round if the weather wasn't so hot.

So all good so far. The bits that are a little strange really revolves around the food. The food is disappointing really although the setting for the restaurant is amazing outside next to a lake and teaming with wildlife while you eat. The standard of the food is just ok, and nothing special to write home about. There is choice, but it just needs smartening up. Breakfast is the same most mornings and looks good, but doesn't really change much if you are there for the week.

The final slight problem is the lack of English speaking, now I know I was in Brazil, but I was surprised on the lack of English being spoken around the hotel. Something to be aware of with the country as a whole.

In summary this is a nice hotel which I would stay at again if in the area.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony as the view is really worth it.

If you want to rest, stay in contact with nature, enjoy sun and sand; this is the place to stay . Staff is amazingly courteous, breakfast is delicious with plenty of fruits and tapioca cooked a in front of you. The hotel is just 10 min from Flamengo Beach where there is the famous Barraca do Lôro. On the other hand, if you want to see the city, bear in mind that you will spend around 150 reais round-trip by taxi.

This is the hotel to relax in after the high tempo of the big city.
As soon as you walk into reception to check in, the weight of travelling in Brazil falls off your shoulders.
Big rooms and very comfortable beds.
Excellent lunch next to the pool and over looking the lake.
Staff were very attentive and were very keen to help on chioce of food and drink.
Siutable for business or family pleasure.

One of the best hotels in Salvador. They have a good staff, nice rooms, one of the best breakfast that I ever had, nice gym, etc. The only issue is that the hotel is quite far from Pituba, Rio Vermelho and Downtown. If you go to Camaçari or Mataripe is perfect.

This hotel is a little aged (like most of the hotel in Salvador) but service and convenience makes it a good choice especially for business travelers.
Nice modern lobby and full amenities (swimming pool, gym, nice garden) are kind of counterbalanced by the age showed by the rooms.
In general a very convenient choice.
