Quinta do Porto
Ranked #20 of 20 Hotels in Arraial d'Ajuda
Reviewed 25 July 2011

My wife an I spent 8 nights at Quinta do Porto for our honeymoon in mid-July this year.

The hotel is in a quiet location overlooking the bay towards Porto Seguro. Very picturesque with a charming rustic look and feel. The restaurant, bar and marina areas have plenty of seating to relax in and the pool area is well maintained and has a tropical feel to it. However, the room was not of a good standard, poorly maintained and unclean.

We appreciated the rustic nature of the hotel and were not expecting pristine and modern surroundings but the cleanliness of the rooms was dubious. The tiled floor was dirty and dusty and clearly hadn't been cleaned properly before or during our stay. Not only could we feel the dirt beneath our feet while walking around, the soles of our feet were filthy by the time we'd walked from the shower to the bed.

The bathroom was dark, dingy and didn't look like it had seen any cleaning products for several days, possibly weeks! Even a half-spent bar of soap left on the floor of the shower cubicle was still in the same place after the housekeeper had been! A clear sign that the cubicle had not been cleaned properly.

While we weren't expecting the bed sheets to be changed everyday, we did hope for at least one change during our stay. We only got this after complaining on day 5. They also seemed reluctant to provide us with enough toilet paper or soap. Twice, we had to visit reception on our return from a day out to get fresh supplies as housekeeping had left us with either the bare minimum or nothing at all! It also took 2 days to get a blown light bulb replaced in the gloomy bathroom and the same amount of time to get a remote control for the TV! A TV which had only a dozen or so terrestrial channels and no pay TV.

Although we loved Arrial, Porto Seguro and the surrounding areas, the state of the room and the service provided took the edge off what was a really important holiday for us. We later learned that the travel agency had also arranged for the hotel to provide a honeymoon welcome in the room on our arrival. Sadly, this never materialised.

CONCLUSION: Not recommended for newlyweds!!!

Room Tip: In terms of view, get a room facing west towards the marina, the pool area and Porto Seguro...and ma...
