Do not stay here.Posted Mar 19, 2017 on Orbitz
I cancelled my reservation within an hour of arriving to the location. The hotel was a mess and was being remodeled, there was no air conditioning in the lobby, no dinner available at the pool, the service was unprofessional and the staff were not helpful.

First VisitPosted Jun 28, 2016
It was only a one night stay. The rooms are spacious and interestingly designed. As I was traveling with a toddler the concrete edges in the bed design were not ideal. Nice enough rooms but here was a slightly fishy odor in the rooms. Hotel exterior appeared a bit rundown but my stay was satisfacory and would recommend it for future use.

Style but no substancePosted Mar 1, 2012
Cons: Smell, service, location.
Location: Not good.
Very stylish hotel. They did everything right. Except they placed it in the parking lot of a gas station, didn't put in enough air conditioning, and made the rooms smell like urinal cakes. The pool is a little dirty and the staff ranged from helpful to rude.

Great beach getaway but too far from the actionPosted Nov 27, 2011
Location: Barra is closer to the historic town, downtown and it seemed much safer. There seem to be plenty of amenities like restaurants and tourist commerce.
Cocooon is cool, mod and definetely better geared as a beach getaway. Service is reasonably good and breakfast had a great spread and variety. Decor has the feeling of a minimalist boutique hotel. Rooms have glass store front which need to be locked for safety and it makes for a very fish in the bowl claustrophobic feeling. For me, a solo traveler with little time, the commute to Bahia's attractions was very inconvenient and taxi expensive. There are public busses which go through Bahia's beaches. Couples and people with cars do better here. Barra would have been the ideal location.

Cool hotel in a weird locationPosted Jun 11, 2011
It is a really cool and trendy hotel, but really stuck in the middle of nowhere. There isnt really one thing to do around 10 blocks. The food is very good, the pool is amazing, the rooms are modern and with very nice details. If you come to Salvador to stay in the hotel then pick this one, if you want to see the city then think about the money you will pay in taxis or the time it will take you there. Its close to the airport!!!

Far away from centrePosted Oct 28, 2010
The hotel in itself was ok. Except only one person in reception spoke english and the breakfast didn't have a lot of choice so after 6 days it became rather boring. The hotel is located about 45mins from city centre and to get there by bus is a mission as they come rarely and no one speaks english to help you. The area is very local with a supermarked near by and a little restaurent across the road. But besides that, there's nothing else but the beach. Would go again if the hotel was nearer the town centre but it was too far for me.

Great hotel but........Posted Sep 18, 2008
The hotel itself was really great value. The service was good, rooms were clean and fashionable, food was good, and very close to the beach. However it was far from the big tourist areas so it was a real pain getting to Barra and Pelourinho via bus (altho bus station was very nearby) or an expensive taxi ride. But if you just want to hang by the beach or their pool to relax then I recommend this hotel.
