Nice boutique hotel right on the beach

Posted Aug 29, 2017
Pros: Right on the beach, good restaurant, close to restaurants and shops.
Cons: The wind is extremely strong and you could feel the breeze through the sliding French doors going out to the balcony.
Location: Approx 100 yards from the Tomar turtle rescue project; very close to the downtown area
The Porta do Lua is a charming, small boutique hotel right on the beach. The complimentary breakfast is plentiful and varied. The staff is very nice and try to accommodate English as best they can. The tide swings are amazing in Bahia, when the tide goes out mid-morning, vendors show up on the beach with masks and snorkels so folks can snorkel in the tide pools. You can walk on the rocky bottom to get to the tide pools, but it helps to have swim shoes or Crocs. The beaches are very nice and you can walk forever in either direction. You can walk to the downtown area in approx. 5 minutes, lots of restaurants and artisan shops. Very nice area for a romantic get away.

Worth a try...

Posted Jul 21, 2010
We had a wonderful experience. The hotel staff is super nice, but this was not unusual in Brazil where everyone treated us well. Most people do not speak English in Brazil but that did not get in the way of a good stay. The rooms are "rustic" with hard floors, '70s style, and while the size is adequate, they are small. We had two of our best meals there at this hotel. The service and the setting are ordinary, but the food was simply great. They offer free tea and coffee at 4pm daily. Internet access is free. If you are considering this hotel, remember that this is a resort type place and is located within a village like setting with some unpaved roads and when it rains it is a mess (but we considered that a part of the fun! People walk to the village center which consist of numerous shops and restaurants to walk around and shop. The mood is informal with 95% of people walking in flip flops. Two negatives about this area and this hotel if that there is no swimming pool and the beach appears rocky in some areas at low tide. It had rained for three days before we got there so the ocean was choppy, windy, and muddy. Still we saw people swimming. In low tide, pools are water are created within the rocks which is a marvel to explore on foot and see small creatures. The other negative is the cab ride cost of about US$100 each way to Salvador airport (65km). Our driver spoke English which was a nice change and the cost was small as compared to our overall expenditures in Brazil!

Passamos sete dias. Embora o tempo estivesse chuvoso e com muito vento, valeu muito a pena. Tudo na pousada nos agradou. A localização, a atenção e educação dos funcionários e a comida, tanto no café da manhã quanto nas opções de almoço.

Para quem gosta do conceito Pousada Boutique pé na areia, a Porto da Lua é o lugar: apartamentos espaçosos, ducha relaxante, amenities delicados (loção e chocolates de boas vindas), sem ostentação e o que é melhor, com varanda, rede e vista mar onde os recifes permanentes de Praia do Forte, as pocinhas, e adivinha, a lua cheia como convidada do Outono, só complementaram o conforto da estadia. Ah, prepare suas papilas gustativas e o estômago para saborear um café da manhã farto e gostoso como só as iguarias do Nordeste, especialmente da Bahia, podem proporcionar.

Profissionais despreparados e mal educados.

Profissionais despreparados e mal educados. Estrutura mal sinalizada. Combinação que provoca constrangimento aos hospedes, que pagam caro por um serviço precário. CANCELAMOS A HOSPEDAGEM.

Hotel confortável, funcionários cordiais, cafe da manhã farto, com itens saborosos e diferentes. Bom serviço na área do gramado. Ducha do banheiro boa também. Seria melhor de houvesse piscina no gramado (o que não vou é possível em razão das tartarugas). Amamos e voltaríamos certamente!
