My husband and I went here for our honeymoon the first week of March. It was beautiful, romantic, relaxing and fun! Everything I had dreamed a honeymoon should be. The front desk staff made the extra effort to give us a room with a particularly nice view, and asked the lobby bartender to pour us some champagne. A nice touch...

It is worth a quite long trip,approx.45 min away from Salvador airport . 6 swimming polos,one of them with a bar and a lovely one for kids. Good food,some thematic RESTAURANTS .Free access to THE neighbor hotel Iberostar Bahia where THE japonese Restaurant Sakura (Benihana style)is very recommendable.

Beautiful landscape and gardens, but not a place for a couple without children who appreciate good food and wine! There is all about QUANTITY and NOT quality! The price for 4 nights was very expensive (R$ 5.000,00 without flights) and for that I was expecting a lot more! There are no snacks served with drinks by the pool, so if...
