We chose the hotel purely through Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. Really clean, airy and spacious feel to the hotel (and the rooms). Ideally, make sure you get a room overlooking the pool or the garden (although not a ground floor room, as people can see right in and you are more likely to be woken by early...

The hotel is close to the beach and the village, where you can find all the restaurants, bars and shops. The hotel staff is really friendly and create great "caipiroskas". The rooms are comfortable and clean and the pool area is excellent.

Porto Zarpa Hotel was simply beautiful, close to the shopping, restuarants, and Projecta Tamar, also only 5 mins walk to the beach. The rooms are very compfy, and made even better is the pool side room with a view. The food, (although eating is generally done in the streets of praia do Forte) is of good quality, esp. the breakfasts...

Our recent trip to Brazil was nothing short of brilliant, while at Praia do Forte, about an hour and a half north of Salvador, we stayed at the Porto Zarpa hotel. I would highly reccomend the stay, the rooms are very compfy and if you have a pool side room, you get a view as well. Only 5 minutes from...

This hotel has a good vibe and is recommended if you aren't looking for high end. The place has a friendly set-up, the rooms are large, clean and the airco is modern. Good wifi is free. The beach is not far, and there is a small swimmingpool for a quick dip to escape the heat of the sun. Breakfast was...

This was our last stop on a 22 day tour of Brazil. We had deliberately planned a beach and sun stop to make up for the hectic schedule, and this place did not let us down. If you are used to the Mediterranean style of small hotel, you won't be disappointed. It's a simple place, with basic rooms (including air...

This is our 4th time in Porto Zarpa and the hotel remains one of the best locations in Praia do Forte. The room is very clean and you can go to the beach walking 100 meters.

Our January 2010 visit to Porto Zarpa hotel in Praia do Forte was a most pleasant experience. While no one on the staff seemed to speak English, they were ever so helpful despite our very limited Portuguese. The small 2 story hotel is one street away from the lively music, shops and restaurants of the village and a short walk...
