nice hotel close to the beach

Posted Jul 24, 2017
Pros: the staff and the facilities. they have a really nice restaurant which is the house where Vinicius de Morais used to live, when he lived in Itapuã.
Cons: communication between Expedia and the hotel.
Location: The hotel is situated in a beach called Itapuã, fairly separated from Salvador in terms of walking, but with enough life around to keep you busy.
truly nice hotel, with a wonderful attentive staff. Even though we arrived as late as 2 am they were ready and waiting for us, and even changed our room to one with two separate beds, since our booking didn't specify it.

Favorite hotel in Salvador

Posted Mar 23, 2017
I love this place. It's perfect if you are in transition & want to be near the airport - a 15" hop. The place itself is charming and loaded with character as the former residence of Brazilian poet and legend, Vinicius de Moraes. In addition, its location across the street from the beach at Farol de Itapua means a walk across the street puts you on a gorgeous beach with palm trees, barracas, and local characters. The staff is great and couldn't be more welcoming. If, however, you are spending much time in the city proper, it is a long way into town and is not the best base for that.

I would stay there again and again

This hotel was an amazing surprise for us. Staff members are nice, the location is great, and the breakfast is really good. I received an upgrade which made my stay even better. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. It's the best hotel in Itapuã.

Great stay in front of the beach!

Posted Aug 1, 2016 on Hotels
Great finding. I wanted a hotel that was near the beach and close to the Itapuã Lighthouse since I wanted to take some photos at sunrise. The hotel had everything I needed. I had the chance to stay in one of the rooms of Vinicius de Moraes house. It was a nice and comfy room. The bed was super comfy and those pillows were delicious. I wanted a relaxed weekend, so the hotel has everything for that. You have the beach, you have 2 pools, you have several seating areas in their garden, the food at the restaurant was great! There is taxi service available 24/7. The tourist double-decker bus stops by right in front of the hotel if you're into that. there are public buses outside too. The hotel has a bike rental station just outside if you need some cash. An ATM is at walking distance at a gas station. If you're looking for a place to stay near the beach, this is your place. If you want a place near the most popular touristic points, this might not be your location because almost all of them are 30kms away. (The view is quite beautiful though...because the road goes right by the side of the beach). I would stay here again. thank you for a wonderful stay.

Promise one thing and when you arrive nothing matc

Promise one thing and when you arrive give you whatever the hotel management or employee wants with dxcuse that is it. And you got stuck with pre pay no refund condition. They privilege direct client over Expedia customers.
