This is the most beautiful located seaside/beach hotel I ever was during my many travels. Great staff, like Wellington, Alessandra and Janaina! Away from disco's, and straight acces to the endless beach. The perfect place to enjoy the beautiful coast of Bahia, and meet extraordinary people,I will be back asap!
the fact that it's just in front of the seaside is a great plus. And the breakfast was really nice too.
the staff tried to charge us more than due claiming that the computer system wasn't working and gave us just a hand-written piece of paper as a receipt. Also, there was no electricity for part of the night we were staying - and no hot water.
Great view of the sea from the room. Located on the beach. Friendly staff. Free self service tea in the afternoon. Good breakfast quality and variety. Sometimes cute Saguis are around at breakfast time.
The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful, both English and non-English speakers. They allowed us to check in early after we came in from a 7 hour nightbus + 2 hr transfer, and let us use the shower in an empty room after we had already checked out, because we were wet and sandy from our whale watching trip. The room was simple but beautiful, looking straight out onto the beach.
There were issues with water not coming out of the sink that were promptly fixed. The entire town shut down in a big thunderstorm on our last night which for some reason also affected the power supply, but we understand that that's out of their control.
Good location close to the beach.
We had in advance informed the hotel that we would arrive early. We arrived at 9 o'clock in the morning, and were told that we would be able to have the room 30min later, but in the end we could only have the room after 12.
When you stay at Porto da Lua in Mata de Sao Joao, you'll be on the beach, within a 10-minute walk of Praia do Forte Beach and Papa-Gente Beach. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
