Spacious rooms but HORRIBLE service

2 out of 5
Posted Sep 10, 2016
Besides the fact that there is usually only one person at the reception, which means you have to wait alot before even been served, we also had issues with the staff working at this establishment. We were told to not unpack as we were going to be moving rooms to a sea view. We waited for over 3 hours wasted our prescious time we could be exploring the city, expecialy important to us as we told them we had limited time. They didnt change us rooms untill the next day. Waste of our time. Secondly we had booked a tour that without our knowledge had been cancelled. We had provided the agency with out room number and hotel number. The hotel never called us to inform that thr tour had been cancelled even though the agency called them repeatedly to inform us. Another waste our time, of our entire day actually. Also when we called to ask for them to take our luggage from our room to the reception ( which is a very long walk ) they told us no because there was no one available. We had to drag our heavy suitcases IN THE RAIN to our cab ourselves. Also the tv was unwatchable since it was all static, they will put you on hold for minutes at a time when calling the reception from our room and the shower head spread out so far it seems to hit everything but my head. Conclusion, old hotel with very spacious rooms, terrible and rude service and poor maintanance. Oh and i speak fluet portuguese and had a hard time so if you only speak english you would be digging your own grave booking it

Great location but..

Pestana Bahia and Pestana Lodge are in need of major renovation and up keeping. A response to a request to fix a door lock issue was only taken care of after 24 hours the initial request because I would not wait any longer. Friendly staff specially the ones at the restaurants and bars! I could see that some of them feel ashamed of the maintainance/up keeping. In my opinion the only ones to blame is the Portuguese Pestana Group!

Extremly slow check-in. Safe did work and not possible to fixed immediately as appartment apparently owned by an indvidual. Only two towels for two bathrooms and one towel with hair. Ask for more but did not get them. Some problems with doorlock. Cannot recommend the hairdresser. The persons helping with our luggages were efficient.

Location and Buildings/Interior

Posted Feb 6, 2015
Pros: Location and views. Food also good in the lodge section but not in the hotel
Cons: equipment, decoration, furnishings
Location: Location amazing, town with great restaurants and bars in walking distance
Amazing location but buildings and especially the interior decoration and furniture very tired and in bad condition. Would only recommend the LODGE. Facilities are good but equipment is old. Swimming pool fantastic with great views.

Good location and large rooms...

3 out of 5

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: - large room; - swimming pool; - breakfast; - location.
Cons: - Pool water could be warmer; - Access could be direct, without needing to cross the lobby of the Pestana Bahia.
Location: The Lodge is located in Rio Vermelho, a bohemian area of Salvador.
The Pestana Lodge has large suites with a huge balcony. Some suites have breathtaking views of the sea, but unfortunately most are taken by permanent residents. The swimming pool is certainly the main attraction of the Pestana Lodge. An infinity pool that really made me want to swim. Unfortunately, the water was so cold (despite the sunny day) that I only enjoyed a few minutes in the water... Breakfast was delicious, with tapiocas made to order. And the staff was always smiling and attentive. The only con. The Pestana Lodge is the new addition to the old Pestana Bahia, a decadent and very unattractive neighbor hotel. Checkin, checkout and access are made through the awful and depressing lobby of the Pestana Bahia.

Not a bad deal during the World Cup -- about $225

We booked last minute to follow our team to next game. In seaside neighborhood, beautiful view, nice pool. Original Hotel is shabby on outside, being renovated in public areas. This is the LODGE--newer condo units. Large rooms . Free breakfast was decent. Room service good. Language barrier; few speak English and we found Portugese pretty difficult.

Posted May 3, 2013
Pros: nothing
Cons: every aspect of the experience could be improved
Location: very dangerous
no maintainance (at all) in the new area of the hotel, strong smell in room, poor a/c, bad illumination in halls. gym area in condition, no way I could return there. more of a cheap hostal with prices of a real luxury hotel.

Salvadore Visit

5 out of 5
by from Illinois
Posted Jul 9, 2012
Pros: Resort was great. Old town rich in history and culture even good shopping.
Cons: Traveling between the old town and the resort does not feel safe at night.
Location: Great resort, visit to old town would take you a day. the rest of your time just relax by the pool.
We stayed in the resort apartments. There is also a hotel as part of the property. As a property everything was outstanding. we loved the apartment , the facilities and everything. There aren't too many options outsaid of the resort and food in the resort is pretty expensive or the value. Our room included breakfast which was great. Old town is the main attraction with a lot of history. It is about 7 Kms from the resort. wandering about at night alone may not be the safest in Salvadore.

Great hotel but not in winter..

4 out of 5
Posted Jul 5, 2012
Hotel per se is very pleasant, especially if you stay in lodge...winter (July ) is not the best month....hotel was almost empty, you walk as a ghost around...even the guy in the lobby plays his piano for nobody...the best what you can do is to book all day excursions to the island...the island Morro de Sao Paolo is dream island and definitely "must"...you can book all excursion at the lobby of hotel..
