Definitely worthwhile staying herePosted Oct 1, 2013
This is a well maintained renovated mansion over a hundred years old. Air conditioning, ventilation and wireless worked very well. I did not like three things: 1) the pillows themselves had not been washed recently, 2) the sheets were too small for the bed, and 3) the cleaner used a highly perfumed substance to clean with. Nevertheless, when you consider the cost per night, the convenient location and how well the ventilation/air conditioning and wireless worked, I definitely recommend it. I stayed in a much fancier and expensive hotel for the next few nights and the wireless reception was terrible. The other thing about this hotel is that you get a good sense of how people in the neighbourhood (including away from the beach) live. I was a woman on my own here and did not at all feel threatened when walking outside at night even though there were lots of young people drinking on the beach in front of the hotel each evening i was there.

Excellent hotel on the beachPosted Aug 31, 2013
Pros: As above
Location: I think it a better location than being in the old part of town
The management was first class . Nothing was to much trouble. Management made a point of talking to everybody at breakfast. No complaints on the facilities or location.

Great Hotel with Superb Customer ServicePosted Jul 25, 2013
First off, the location is great (within a stones throw of the beach and within walking distance to a pleathora os restaurant s and grocery store. The family that owns the Hotel went above and beyond to make sure their guests felt comfortable and secure while staying at Village Novo. Even inviting my family and I to hang out with them on the beach one Sunday afternoon. I rarely write reviews but I had to make an exception due to my family thoroughly enjoying their stay. Village Novo will not be seeing the last of our family.

Unique pousada in a great locationPosted Feb 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
It was great! The hotel is opposite to the beach very close to the main town with many buses passing frequently. In New year's eve the owner organised some food and drinks in the beach for the guess which was brilliant. We really enjoyed our time in there! Recommended!

Serves its PurposePosted Jan 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
I think the location of the hotel is the best. If you are looking to stay close to the beach and for a nice and friendly staff at a reasonable rate, this hotel serves its purpose. Its in a prime location just to people watch.
Don't let the outside fool you!Posted Jan 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
We arrived to the hotel later in the day and wondered whatever had gotten ourselves into. The outside of the hotel is rustic and the area right across from the beach is busy and very alive. A great way to experience to local culture and flavor of life Inside found a well run friendly experience Great value for the price !!

NovoPosted Dec 16, 2012
Location: Beach front
Average, clean, rooms a bit dark as windows face into the hotel corridors, ok for base to sleep, good breakfast, no real areas to relax and the terrace could do with some chairs to make this some where nice to sit.

Beach Lovers Dream!Posted Aug 19, 2012 on Hotels.com
This was my 2nd time in Salvador, and of course my 2nd time at the Village Novo hotel! The staff is the reason why i enjoyed my 1st stay, and the reason why I came back. They really do their best to welcome you, and to provide you with the information needed to enjoy your stay. If you are a beach lover, this is the hotel for you, because the atmosphere in the neighborhood is a perfect setting for enjoying it to the fullest. The rooms are cleaned daily, they provide a lovely breakfast, free wifi, and there are tons of nice places to eat and shop in the neighborhood.

Location + Value + Owner = Perfect (Like Home)Posted Mar 16, 2012
Pros: Owner's willingness to help. Quaint, Comfortable and Value.
Location: Perfect. Right on Barra Beach. Right in the middle of everything you'd want to do in Salvador.
Quaint, comfortable, value pousada with an incredible location and an amazing owner. Too many details to list but no frills, clean, safe, AMAZING rooftop view of ocean. Really nothing else like it in the area. And Barra was perfectly situated between Pelourinho and Rio V. so the buses were convinient. The lighthouse was a short walk away.

RelaxPosted Feb 28, 2012 on Hotels.com
I was looking for a hotel which made me feel that I was in Brazil. The people, the view, the entire decoration made me feel like that. The staff are friendly and very available for any tipe of information. I work in the hospitality business and I always look for those extra details. I can not complain. Thank you very much
