Mar Brasil Hotel is in the northeastern Salvador neighborhood of Itapua, where hotels and residential areas blend together next toone of the city's most popular beaches. Itapua Beach and Farol de Itapua, its photogenic lighthouse, are just 550 m (just over a quarter-mi) south. There, you can grab a snack from a vendor and explore the pools that emerge at low tide.
Surfers should head to Stella Maris Beach (3.5 km, or just over 2 mi) or Praia do Flamengo (6 km, or 3.75 mi), where roaring waves are better suited for longboards. Parque Metropolitano de Pituacu, 8 km (5 mi) away, is an expansive park laced with bike paths surrounding a lake. Deputado Luis Eduardo Magalhaes International Airport is just a 20-minute drive away, and garage parking is complimentary at the hotel.
And a Bahian landmark is right on site. The home of poet Vinicius de Moraes is on the property. Much of its original 1970s decor and art remains, and it now contains the business center, meeting space, and a balcony with a view of the ocean. Indoor and outdoor spaces abound at this hotel, including at Sirena Restaurant & Bar, where you can enjoy international and local dishes in the dining room or al fresco. Room service is available 24 hours a day. Spend a serene afternoon lounging by the pools--Mar Brasil Hotel has one for all guests and one just for children.
Your guestroom's balcony frames a cozy hammock, just right for a midday nap, and in-room massage is available. Guestrooms include complimentary bottled water, kitchens with refrigerators as well as minibars. Keep in touch with the complimentary high-speed wired Internet access, available throughout the hotel, or catch up on the news with the flat-screen LCD TV, which comes with cable channels.
