this hotel remains one of the best in town and mantains the rustic and local taste of regional bahia. Although is very clean, confortable and well organized, it does not designed to bee very modern or sophisticated. Food is very good, fresh and people are flexible with personal tastes. The staff very kind by all means. You come to the hotel by a local big boat the crosses the river and it gets a very nice pictoresque taste to the beguinning. My kids were amazed by the pool and the local intertainers are good. it is good cost benefit ofr families with children but it is not the best place for couples, since there are so many other people's kids around.

Room Tip: do not stay around the pool if you do not woant to be awakened by "early birds" around the...

The hotel decoration is of good taste, rustic and romantic. The room was nice, clean and comfortable except from the bathroom that needs an urgent renovation. The breakfast was fine as expected from a resort, the dinner of traditional food was wonderful but the other meals we have had were just Ok. The staff is kind and helpful, everyone seemed to be content. Another good point is the many peaceful and pleasant sites along the gardens to relax, read or enjoy the view. The small distance from the city center is not a problem since the resort free up a van to take the guests there. The Arraial d'ajuda eco resort is a really great place to stay if you want a big infrastructure. It is a good idea especially if you are with children.

I stayed at the hotel with three other friends and we had an excellent stay. Eco Resort's facilities are just ok, without a lot of infrastructure: a reasonable swimming pool, the jacuzzi is bad, doesn't have a spa and the cleaning in the common areas are not good. The restaurant has a good menu, but there's no variety. Almost every day the same food. You can enjoy the dinners on the restaurants in Arraial D'Ajuda and Trancoso. Porto Seguro is not a good place and everything is more expensive. The positive point of the Eco Resort is the service, with employees always helpful, which is unusual in Bahia.

We had a really good time there, with amazing beach, delicious food. Animals everywhere, great fun for kids. We fed monkeys, saw different birds and beautiful flowers in the garden. It feels like you are in paradise. Room was average. Staff was helpful. Arraial D'Ajuda Eco Resort is a great price quality choice. Have a good vacation! :)

Me, my husband and children (3 and 5 years) spent six days at this resort. In front of the beach! Beautiful place and views, free transportation to the downtown village. Everything was very good, the staff team was attentious. Room was clean with a large bathroom (no tub), well located at ground floor near a small kichten for babies. The play area was great, with good and large pools and two jacuzzis. The playkid area was the best part, with playground for litlle children and special place to parents play with them. Food was also great, there was a buffet restaurant and a table service one, both with appropiate kids menu. Breakfast was varied and delicious.

Room Tip: For those with children, ask to stay on the ground floor, near the lobby.

My husband was attending a medical symposium and I decided to accompany him for a mini vacation.

The resort has several high points. The decor is really beautiful and well thought out. There is a real "rustic chic" feel. Lots of wood , fluffy pillows , native Brazilian art , hammocks. Very warm and inviting. There is a lizard theme throughout (calango) , which comes from the Afro-Brazilian culture. There are lizard mosiacs , paintings , really cool.

The rooms are extermely comfortable , with huge beds , nice linens and lots of pillows. There are flat screen t.vs. The pool area is attractive , with pretty loungers and umbrellas to protect you fom the sun. The a/c is excellent .

The beach is striking , with dramatic reefs. However , the sand was not inviting and I saw dogs on the beach , including one doing his " business" in front of a guard , who did not clean up.

The whole resort has a very relaxing vibe which I enjoyed very much.I love calm , tranquil atomospheres and this fit the bill.

Cida , in guest relations , was very helpful and nice.

Negatives points:

The food was fine , but not great. And the food serving staff really needs to improve. Several times , I sat down with no set table . The wait staff observed this fact , just standing there. Only after asking did I get what I needed.
On 2 mornings , I went for waffles. There was nobody else in line. There was a stack of cold , hard waffles and batter with an open grill . Instead of making oa new waffle , on both occasions , the server gave me the rock hard cold waffle.

The day we left , the shower was ice cold. The other days it was fine , but the last day , early , it was not a pleasant way to end the stay.Also , the soap provided is institutional- small , no smell , not nice at all. The shampoo and conditioner were fine.

Overall , I´d go back , but there is room for improvement , especially in the staff training. There is a lot of potential , as the grounds , local , and decor are gorgeous.

I stayed at this resort end of february.
The hotel is not so big if compared with another resorts and this is a very positive point. It is not necessary walk many "kilometers" to get the restaurant or the swimmingpool.
The staff is very polite and the kids club for the chilldrens is perfect. The hotel gardens are really beautiful and the location of the hotel is also perfect - in between of Porto Seguro and Arraial d'ajuda The hotel offer a free shuttle service for Arraial d"
Ajuda village every night. and there is a aquatic park near at the hotel - it is free for host from hotel.
The beach in front the hotel is very good and it is possible swimming in a calm ocean.
The breakfast is great and the special dinners offered in the restaurant Apaga Fogo is really amazing.

My only complain about the hotel is that there is no activities for the adults (dancing, games). The hotel is focused on a calm atmosphere.
