If I had to describe this resort in one word, I would certainly call it magic. In fact, it's very well located, close to a turtle reserve, and the environment is amazing: white sand beach, turquoise sea, paths dotted with palm trees: a real piece of heaven! The rooms are big, clean and some have a view on the beach.... More

A top resort with all inclusive service. In comparison somehow expensive. Located about an hour drive from Salvador airport (I strongly recommend you to call a Uber Taxi, to get there) sunshine and summer weather guaranteed. Place for family or for couple without children. Not really for someone looking for funny nights. The hotel structure is awesome, and although 8... More

The hotel has an incredible location, by a paradise beach. It is perfect for a quiet stay as it is located about 1h20 from Salvador de Bahia. The closest village "Praia do Forte" stays about 10 minutes by taxi.
