Offering direct access to the beach, this Mata de Sao Joao property is within 3 mi (5 km) of Klaus Peters Municipal Natural Park, Papa-Gente Beach, and Humpback Whale Institute. Praia do Forte Beach and Imbassai Beach are also within 9 mi (15 km).
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The buffet was huge and excellent for all meals
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The location, the beach and sea (very close to the property). The staff, always smiling and friendly; always ready to help and provide a good service
Cons: The food:- Quantity is put before quality. Ingredients don't seem to be of prime quality. Only cakes were reasonably good. During a 8 day stay salted butter could´t be found; that is strange! The thematic restaurants are pretentious, but the food is not up to what could be expected. Seems to be needing some refurbishing.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location, amenities, staff, food was excellent. Lot of options for adults and children alike. Spacious rooms, very good quality, especially for Brazil standards. Ecologically aware, recycling, minimising usage of plastic which is a HUGE plus and should be an example for other hotels!!!!
Cons: The cleanliness in Bloco 3 in the corridors could have been better, probably impact of the construction nearby.
9.2 Excellent
Cons: The had a lamp with no light bulb. There is fungus in the shower stall. When it got dark out the common area lights were not lite right away and had to walk up the stairs in the dark. That was a security issue in my opinion.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great for families. No need to carry money and think about prices.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The property location is beautiful: great beach and pools. The staff is friendly and well trained. The staff of the kids camp is superb. The property has quite a few bars (all included) around the pool and near the beach so your next "caipirinha" is always at your fingertip. The gym is huge and has a great variety of classes. The spa facilities is very nice. The property is only 1 hour drive from the airport.
Cons: There is A LOT of food always available but because the food is served all buffet style the food is never too fresh, especially the meats that are mostly overcooked. The property advertises that you have 6 restaurants to choose from but in reality you can only have 1 dinner at the special restaurants per 3 night stay- read the fine print and book early.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Although with very little variety of seafood, food and drinks were the best part, with acceptable quality.
Cons: At check-in, the assistant asked me for the credit card I used for booking to make a photocopy. A few hours after check-out the credit card was used for an online purchase without my consent. Fortunately, I had blocked the credit card immediately after the unusual and unsafe payment procedure of the hotel.
7.5 Good
Pros: -The King restaurant was the best
Cons: - The pool close so early ( 18:00) - Difficult to make reservation for the other restaurant (can’t be done by phone and in the application always fully booked ! Although its was not when i went to check it - far from the airport ( around 1 hour by taxi )

Pros: Location is perfect, easy walk to shops, restaurants and beach. The rustic chic and beautiful decorated Refúgio have created a little tropical oasis, very relaxing and a real “Refúgio” after Salvador. Staff helpful and smiley although not all speak English - we managed fine. Highly maintained property and very clean. Recommend booking a room with a balcony or terrace to have additional space and a hammock too. Breakfast was a feast of homemade goodies laid out on a groaning table. Eggs and other options to order. Different freshly squeezed fruit juices daily. Tea, coffee and water available all day to help yourself to. The ceviche for a poolside lunch was divine and they have a good selection of wines. Pool and restaurant service was very good. Nice touch is that while we were there the staff changed uniforms daily, the girls in stripy dresses one day and pretty florals the next.
Cons: Pool water temperature was too warm.

Pros: Great location, beautiful decor, amazing free breakfast, comfortable bed, friendly staff (with the exception of the two guys in the reception: Diego (non-Brazilian) and an old man. Not very friendly, didn’t make us feel welcome. But everyone else in the hotel was great.
Cons: We didn’t like the waiting for our steak sandwich at the pool. It took about 40 min, we ended getting it and eating it when we were back in our room. Also, we didn’t like how not friendly Diego (the non-Brazilian guy) was. He didn’t greet us with a “welcome” and smiling. He offerd us coconut water at during checking but never delivered. We had to ask twice and eventually we asked directly at the bar (that’s when we got it). Also he gave us a room with not a great view. We called and ended up getting a pool view which we liked, but if they have that one available, why not give us the best one or ask us what we preferred? Nut overall we had a great experience and would definitely go back!

The location of the room should be a facility spot rather than a room that is charged as a stranded room. Tv didn’t work and avoid bank holidays in praia do forte. Packed

We saw marmosets coming down to eat fruit at tea time. The rooms all have sea views and have hammocks on the balconies. Staff are friendly.
Cons: For the price I would have expected more information at the hotel and maybe a pool. The staff don’t speak much English but are friendly and try to be helpful. The rooms are quite basic for the price but were clean. The safe was different to others I’ve seen and didn’t seem very safe.

Pros: The breakfast is outstanding with many choices of fruits and cakes. Eggs made to your specifications. I have been to Porto da Lua 4 times and I am always impressed by the staff and location.

That said, be aware that you have to walk to the pousada from some parking place out on the street, because the pousada is on the pedestrian-only section, about 200 meters from the nearest street (and you will have to park even farther away than that).
Cons: I booked online (as you know) and sent a message that we would arrive around midnight, which we did. There was no one available to help us check in; someone showed up after about 10 (long) minutes. Also, be prepared to roll/carry your luggage 2-4 blocks, as there is no parking closer.

6.3 Good
Pros: I liked the gardens, the beach, the swimming pools, the reasonable prices for the drinks, the staff, the very good food and variety for dinner.
Cons: Given the fact that this hotel pretends to be a five star hotel, I think that breakfast should be of better quality, on par with dinner which is very good. For example, the quality of the granola was not good although they have truly great ones in Brazil (Vovó Nize, Tia Sonia...). The juices were horrible for a country with such magnificent fresh fruit to press. Why not add some glitz by offering fresh graviola juice and, as a minimum, fresh orange juice? I know it's a lot of work but labor is cheap. In short, given the very high price per night and the five stars, I expected a fantastic breakfast buffet. I was disappointed.
9.6 Excellent

8.8 Excellent
Pros: great service, very beautiful place with wonderful nature and a great view whereever you are, very nice and comfortable beacharea, perfect to relax, we enjoyed the atmosphere with life music every night at dinner
Cons: Some parts of the hotel might need some maintenance. We booked the lowest room-category and were already told at checkin to consider paying an upgrade for a better room. When we saw the room we decided to do so because it was kind of old and we didn't feel comfortable, it was far away from everything and not what we expect from a 5-star-hotel. We liked the other room but would still have expected more for the price.

7.1 Good
Pros: My husband and I stayed only one night at Zarpa Hotel and I was kind of disappointed. the staffs are very friendly, it is well located and breakfast definitely was the best thing of the hotel (every single thing was super fresh, and good/strong coffee). Unfortunately, the swimming pool is very small, the internet did not work at all in my bedroom and bedroom was a bit ugly for the price. I have stayed before in other places in Praia do Forte and I would not recommend this place if you are a couple looking for a quite place to stay in. In the other hand, I absolutely recommend the hotel if you are a family looking for a simple and well located hotel in Praia do Forte. Btw, there is no telephone to speak with the hotel. You can contact them by whatsapp.
Cons: Small swimming pool and internet does not work
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: None
Cons: On arrival the staff were very uninterested. When asked if someone could help us with our luggage to the first deepen to bring was responded to. Eventually the right person was found and half of us helped without changing a word. That he accidentally caused a scratch on our car was not responded to. In addition, our room was dirty. The bathroom is dominated by fungi, we also found hair and our linens were dirty, just like our towels. We asked to change it, but that was not possible. The answer was that they will only be changed again in two days. Fortunately, we only stayed one night.

2.9 Mediocre
Pros: The only ok thing about the place breakfast was good but starts at 8am.
Cons: Check in: we arrived to check in and the front desk lady was texting on her WhatsApp. We said good morning ... asked how she was and as she asked for our names she even not looked at our faces and kept texting on her WhatsApp. She had lot of attitude on her tone of voice, gave a paper for us to fill it up with our personal information. I was actually about to leave and look for another place to stay. As we finally get by check in lady, we realized they rented most of the rooms for a big group of kids that were on a school vacation coming from the US. Kids were loud... real loud... We got to the rooms and felt like in a box , rooms are too small... very bad. Survived the first night , wake up for breakfast and we learned from another rude staff that breakfast starts at 8... ( I travel a lot and never seen breakfast start at 8... Got down at 7:55 to get food and there were a line of school kids starving for food... Asked front desk lady why so late for breakfast and she gave me tons of excuses... none of them are our fault as we are paying higher prices to stay there. As they realized I was not happy they started to get better be nice. So we comeback to sleep and guess what ? There were a Brazilian party for the school kids with loud music and dance... and I had to make them stop so I could sleep. Stay away from there! I told you so!
