Beautiful grounds and great staff

Posted Apr 21, 2016
Pros: We loved the resort, from the grounds, to the staff, to the food. The adult only pool and the live entertainment in the evenings was great.
Cons: Wi-fi included in the room cost would be better.
Location: We booked a day tour of historic Salvador which was a nice way to see the city and hit the tourist hot spots. Also Projecto Tamar is a popular site.
My husband and I stayed at Tivoli, along with two of our friends. We were given adjoining rooms which was great. We used the hotel transportation to and from the airport and had no issues. We were offered drinks upon arrival, and the front desk staff was faster and more responsive than many other hotels in Brazil I've stayed. The groundskeepers do a fantastic job as the greenery, flowers and trees were beautiful. We only used the adult pool, so I can't rate the others, but it was well kept and overlooks the water for a beautiful, relaxing view. We also got to see multiple HUGE iguanas up close since they hang out next to that pool. The restaurant next to the adult pool had amazing food as well. We each had something different (lamb, steak, sea bass, seafood linguine) and all the dishes were excellent. The other restaurant, Goa, is where breakfast and dinner is served buffet style. It has a good variety and we enjoyed trying some Brazilian dishes. My only complaint (which is not the staff's fault) is that cats, birds and monkeys all invade the dining area. They're cute, but I don't exactly enjoy them on my table when I'm eating, which they do because other guests continue to feed them, even though there is a sign posted asking people to NOT feed the wildlife. Make sure to bring bug spray as we got eaten up by mosquitoes and what we think were sand fleas on the beach. Overall, our stay was wonderful and relaxing. We would definitely go again.

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your opinion about the Tivoli Ecoresort Praia do Forte. We were delighted to read your positive comments about our hotel and that we could meet your expectations. Your compliments and recognition of our service and attention show us that we are on the right track. Thank you very much! Regarding your comment about the monkeys and other wildlife, as we are located in a conservation area, they inevitably appear. We have put up "Do not feed the animals" signs throughout the hotel and enforce this in the Program of Activities that we distribute in the rooms, as well as in other information tools. Even so, unfortunately some of our guests do not heed the signs. We assure you that we will keep paying close attention to this. We are honored by your visit and hope to see you again soon. Sincerely, João Eça Pinheiro Managing Director Tivoli Ecoresort Praia do Forte

Great hotel

Posted Aug 15, 2015 on Hotels
Lovely hotel with spacious rooms and excellent balcony complete with hammock. Adults only pool was of an excellent size. Food buffet was very good with beer and soft drinks included in the half board option. Wine was additional. The hotel is situated on a very nice bit of beach which is good for swimming. Would definitely recommend a walk along the beach to the central part of Praia do Forte to see the shops and restaurants there. Although it's billed as an "eco" resort they did change our towels twice a day which was very nice if not a little excessive and not particularly eco friendly.

Great weekend getaway

We love staying here, it's a little bit like Hawaii. The facilities are perfect for a couple's getaway or for a family.

Beautiful Brazilian beach resort

Posted Jan 30, 2015
Nice beach facilities, lots of activities, partial board (breakfast and dinner) had ample and varied choices. Live guitarist/singer at dinner every night, dance band every night as well. We went in January (summer) when it was sunny and mid 80 degrees every day.

Wonderful resort with plenty of stuff to do

Posted Oct 8, 2014
Pros: Beach resort, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, beautiful property, excellent restaurant, sports and other activities
Cons: For the price you pay, internet should be free and should definitely have a better signal all over the property
Location: You can walk to the village of Praia do Forte either through the beach or through the main access road outside. Don't miss the TAMAR Project
Loved everything, from the champagne offered when checking in to the late check-out made possible by the very friendly staff at the reception desk. The place is simply beautiful and even when it's fully packed with tourists it's still possible to find a very peaceful place to enjoy on your own and relax, as it is a huge property. Dinner is absolutely fantastic with the best local tastes and some international cuisine as well. Wine menu has a large variety of offers to suit all pockets. And the very talented lady playing guitar and singing during dinner at the GOA restaurant is an invaluable complement to the whole gastronomic experience. Can't wait to come back to this place.

Great hotel for families

Posted Feb 13, 2013
very nice hotel. Great beach. However if you plan a romantic vacation this is not your place, as it hosts many families with kids. Dont try the spa.

Not worth the high price

Posted Feb 1, 2013 on Hotels
This property is completely priced out of the market. For the price you pay you get an absolute average property with below average food "all you can eat style". In the same area you can find countless "pouasadas" that offer the absolute same comfort for a fraction of the price at the Tivoli
