Sitting 1.5 km from Porto da Barra beach, Bahia do Sol is between Campo Grande and Barra/Ondina Carnival Circuits. It offers air-conditioned rooms and free Wi-Fi.
Score from 375 reviews Very good
Rooms are very simple with quite old furnitures but very clean. Very helpful staff.
Rooms at the front side are a little bit noisy but this was compensated by an amazing view.
Good breakfast, location for the beach and amazing view from the seafront rooms.
A lot of the rooms have two single beds put together, and it is not comfortable. The wifi is also extremely poor in some of the rooms, we were first placed on sixth floor but after they started painting that floor we moved down to fourth floor which was a lot better. Although, the room was a little older, the bed was better and wifi on a whole different level.
Location Good renovations (it's a 48- year old hotel) Staff Spacious rooms
Noisy in the morning Wifi not strong Pool was not open and Booking.com failed to mention it
We have been to Salvador several times over the decades and have stayed in the Grande Hotel four times. We both speak Portuguese and have lived in Brazil off and on. We know what to expect and what is possible. Why did we stay there? Purely misplaced sentimental reasons. We will not do so again.
The quality has declined noticeably. For months the pool has been in repairs. The beach is lovely early in the morning but soon becomes overly crowded. It is noteworthy that it has no public toilets and so the various corners and walls smell of urine. I can only imagine the content of the seemingly clear water. There are no really good places to eat in the Barra. It was a family favorite but no longer.
The sea view is fabulous, but if you have problems with noise, forget it. The accommodation is good enough for a 3 star hotel. The attendants are very attentive, allowed the late chekout for free. The location is excellent, close to all major attractions. The breakfast is very good.
The beach faces the hotel is very boinita, clear and warm waters, but totally controlled by people of bad character and dangerous. I had to pay about USD 30.00 for two coconuts, to use two beach chairs and umbrella. There is no where to stay on the sand without having to accept a beach chair. Never went back on this beach, this situation should be prohibited.
Best location, nice stuff
The swimming pool was in construction ! I don't why I was the last to know
POSITION, JUST IN FRONT OF BEACH, STAFF, REATAURANT, WI-FI
SWIMMINGPOOL NOT OPEN FOR LONG TIME
Location close to beaches, good breakfast, wifi, room, and facilities during World Cup where great.
when i made booking the hotel will provide the WiFI the the was no WiFi so i found very hard to check by internet backing or i want to make another booking through internet. the ligth in the room was not working also the towel they provide was old & tear. I will never recommend this hotel to any one 7 i blame the booking .com for this not the hotel because they do not check these things
Friendly staff, location right on the beach, room sea view.
Extensive construction work on the promenade outside, noisy.
It was easy to find from the airport location was known well by the taxis drivers.
They added a few extra charges I didn't know about to my bill
Great location on the beach and next to the Forte. Good breakfast. Helpful staff, English-speaking.
Neighborhood gets a little shady at night. Was offered to buy drugs more times than I would have liked.
Great view from my sea-view room.
Very tired and old rooms. Construction work outside the window.
location - only.
Poor attitude by staff and any opportunity to increase costs to tourists during the world cup event.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the hotel while in Salvador and were so impressed by how great it was - the location, the quality, amenities (breakfast and swimming pool) and most of all the customer service. I would definitely recommend staying at this location.
Amazing location. Close to everything Salvador has to offer except downtown for sure.close to the fanfest, bus station, farole de Barra and on the beach.
The staff were friendly and helpful particularly Eduardo (a wonderful member of staff) who really went out of his way to make the stay a pleasant one. Great breakfast. Reasonable room.
Construction work outside the hotel. Clearly not the fault of the hotel but that coupled with premium World Cup rates has affected my review.
The staff were friendly an helpful and we liked the pool. The location is excellent.
A few small details like the sheets were too small for the bed and the restaurants food was bland with small portions.
On the beach, close to some restaurants. Close walk to the lighthouse. For the World Cup, very close to Fan Fest.
Over priced - but it was during the world cup, so nothing you can do about it. More english speaking staff would be helpful.
Loved the layout and pool area very relaxing. Hotel is right next to beach and costal walk. Staff we're very helpful. All in all great experience.
Lots of construction on the boardwalk outside the hotel which was noisy and dirty but not the hotels fault. Looks like it will be finished in the next 2 months.
Overall I enjoyed my stay at this hotel.
Great view of the sea. Good food. Would be a good place to stay when they have completed the works on the promenade.
We booked a double room with sea view. We arrived at midnight tired from travelling and had to argue to get such a room. The road was also being dug up. The wifi was poor.
Only near the beach
staff are not friendly and must waiting for them The beach is so dirty Hotel hasn't any facility
All thing was poor
