I have just been at Refugio da Vila, Praia do Forte in august and it was a perfect chioce. The hotel amenities are beautifully integrated with the green Brazilian nature, using local woods and ideas that although simple, show you that local design is a plus. They keep the bahian style not letting go the comfort. Breakfast is absolutely fantastic,... More

hotel is very nice and the service people as well. The rooms are also nice, but nothing special. On the negative side, it is not relaxing to be sat by the pool - you either have the road next to you, so you have car noise or beeping, alarms etc.. If you don't have that you have loud music from... More

We stayed for 4 nights with our 16 month old toddler upon the recommendation of our friends that live in Brazil. It is a small peaceful hotel with friendly staff. Everything is within walking distance. Breakfast is amazing and included in your stay. Lunch and dinners are off the menu and are quite expensive, so I suggest going into town... More

Stayed for 4 nights in March 09. On a short beach stay following a busy tour of Brazilian cities...so looking forward to some serious relaxing. The hotel website looked very promising, and much of it is accurate. The boutique feel to the hotel public areas and garden/swimming pool is accurate, and the good ratings well deserved. The food and bar... More

Excellent, friendly und superb service. Free internet and tea all day plus a very, very good breakfast. Location is 5 minutes from the beach and very close to city center,... More
