    A quiet and beautiful place in an amazing environment of forest along a sandy beach, far away from the noise of the village of Morro. The rooms are confortable individual bungalows. The breakfast is excellent as well as most of the lunch and dinner menu (some dishes better than others, we liked especially the casquinha de siri). The staff is welcoming, helpful and very professionnal. Muito obrigado para tudo !

    There is nothing I did not like, but if you like to be closer to more restaurants and bars, this place may be a bit too remote, at low-tide you can walk to the village but it will take about one hour. There is also a shuttle option a few times a day, but even by car it will take 30 minutes.

    This is a wonderful place for a quiet get-away. The bungalows are beautiful and spacious, the staff is lovely and the food excellent, and you have a beautiful beach all to yourself. What more would you want?

    Angela & Antonia was fabulous and always there to answer any queries with a smile. The property is located past the bustling beaches in Morro and really a haven to relax without all the 'action' of the main beaches. There are shuttles to and from the town which is perfect if you want to do have a look around but don't get stuck in the chaos. Really a fantastic hotel & staff!

    • Submitted from a mobile device

    Everything, especially the bathroom, looks a bit run down and not really well maintained. The garden around the houses is almost deserted, the pads of sun-beds are completely faded and the pool is not refreshing since it has no fresh water circulation. There's no wifi reception in the rooms and even in the lobby area the speed of the internet is really slow. Apart from the staff at the reception, no one couldn't speak English.

    The only thing that was really good was the location of the hotel itself.

    Limited breakfast with poor service, you need to keep reminding that fruits or eggs have been run out. Hotel should also provide by free Kayak or sport beach staff instead of renting (small details that makes the difference). Bungalows has also problems with dust that cause allergy.

    Situated in the excelent 5a praia, gorgeous beach to have rest and enjoy the nature. Paradisiac atmosphere.

    Location was perfect on the quiet Praia do Encanto. a very nice beach with shallow blue waters. Bungalows were surrounded by nature and very spacious and clean. Breakfast was excellent with lots of fruits, breads, cakes, eggs, pancakes, juice and more. They also serve good food for lunch and dinner. There is a free transfer to town but it's also a nice walk along the beach to get to Morro.

    Great location!
    • Leisure trip
    • Group

    For unclear reasons it isn't allowed to hang clothes to dry outside. Indoors it doesn't dry at all. Feels like hotel is forcing to use laundry service. Beach (Praia do Ecanto or fifth beach) isn't really suitable for swimming. An hour and a half walking further south is a beautiful beach with great swimming water. Hotel is also willing to provide transport there.

    Great location! Far enough from the village itself as to have a secluded feeling. The hotel shuttle service (4x per day) provides easy access to the village. Rooms are spacious. Friendly staff.

    This is not a complaint about the hotel, but I was disappointed the satellite service did not carry ESPN for the NBA finals.

    Staff were friendly and accommodating. One of the managers (Angela?) arranged for a driver she knew to meet me back in Salvador to go to the airport since I was alone and not fluent in Portuguese. The grounds were beautiful and since I was only there 2 nights, I didn't even want to take the shuttle into the village. Very relaxing end to my Bahia trip.

    Creio que como sugestão, eu faria com que o lobby e a área da piscina fossem melhores aproveitados a noite. Bem como um bar da piscina que era destivado.

    Os quartos são ótimos. Talvez mínimos reparos seriam necessários, porém absolutamente nada que comprometa a estadia. A piscina é boa, creio apenas que precisaria de uma rejuvenescida. O cardápio do restaurante é bom, com vários itens produzidos aqui mesmo, o que com certeza eleva o nível de qualquer restaurante de hotel. Os funcionários são extremamente educados e prestativos. A vista é linda e o sossego impera. Para quem gosta de visual e descanso é com certeza uma opção. É para quem quer atividades, os passeios que podem ser contratados diretamente no hotel são uma opção interessante. O tempo parece que para aqui. E com certeza eu voltaria.
