Hotel Delfin is probably our favorite of the 4 places we have stayed in Barra. It is the best combination of value, location, and amenities. it is a 4 floor hotel with 7 or 8 rooms each floor. The rooms all have a view to the east ( sunrise ) overlooking the garden pool area, and they mostly have a view of the lagoon ( not the ocean ). There is a roof top patio if you want to see the ocean and sunsets - and a view of the whole town.
Barra is a very small town and is pie shaped getting very narrow as you go south toward the malecon. ( the sand bar the town is named after ), The Delfin is about 2 short blocks away but on the quiet side - the "main strip" is the street that runs parallel with the ocean beach. Everything is a few steps from everything else - bars restaurants etc. Our room had no AC and no TV..but we did pay $10 to rent a fridge. Not the cheapest choice, but way less than a resort. The pool was great for a mid-day plunge. Wifi is included but didn't work on the upper floor where we stayed.More
