This property is very run down. The rooms smell very musty and moldy. The bathrooms are a disgrace. Perhaps 20 years ago, this property was nice, but now it is severely in need of refurbishment. There is no way this is 4/5 stars. I would rate it a 2/5, and I feel like I am being generous. On a positive note, the meals were pretty decent.

Beautiful location
This was my 4th or 5th time staying at this hotel. The grounds are beautiful, the hotel is very clean and the service was very good. There is a wide choice of restaurants in addition to the main buffet and several bars around the resort. English is not widely spoken other than at the main reception desk, however I did not have any problems getting anything I ordered. I recommend this hotel if you are looking for an all inclusive break away from the main city of Salvador.

Poor attention to details: room for 2 adults and 1 infant and only one glass and one cup are provided. Poor choice of toiletries, in fact, no hair conditioner was provided, had to request separately. Poor choice of sea food: staying by the ocean we expected to have a wide range of sea food, at least shrimps should have been a daily option. On a positive note, very child-friendly place, lovely surroundings and lots of great facilities to use
