6/10 Good

3 star hotel priced as 5 star hotel
Location is good in the posh resort of Praia do Forte, close to Salvador de Bahia. Staff was generally friendly and breakfast was above average (Brazilian are demanding about their breakfast...). However the overall condition of the hotel facilities would, at most, qualify it for 3 stars. The price was, however, similar to the Sheraton Bahia Hotel where I stayed right after leaving Praia do Forte, hugely overpriced.

Sugestão do cantinho do café
Boa estadia. Inconveniente era que minha mãe tem mais dificuldade de mobilidade e ficamos no primeiro andar e ela tinha que subir escada. Também recomendaria que o hotel tivesse um cantinho do café, para ter um cafezinho à tardinha ou à noite, sempre agradável isso em um hotel ou pousada.
