About Mar Brasil Hotel, Salvador


Mar Brasil Hotel is in the northeastern Salvador neighborhood of Itapua, where hotels and residential areas blend together next to one of the city's most popular beaches. Itapua Beach and Farol de Itapua, its photogenic lighthouse, are just s short walk away. There, you can grab a snack from a vendor and explore the tide pools that emerge at low tide. The famous Brazilian singer Vinicius de Moares's house is attached to the hotel and is open for visitation. Surfers can head to nearby Stella Maris Beach or Flamengo Beach, where roaring waves are better suited for longboards. Parque Metropolitano de Pituacu 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.

Mar Brasil Hotel, Salvador
I wouldn't come back
This hotel was once nice a long time ago, but the maintenance and cleanliness is so poor and lacking that I wouldn't come back. I should have taken pictures. The bidet hose nosle was black. The toilet seat was broken, the toilet paper holder was broken off the wall, the shower head was so old that it sprayed EVERYWHERE -even over the very dirty shower door and into the bathroom. You couldn't stand anywhere in the shower without water spraying in your eyes. The shower itself was filled with soap scum and black spots. The shower head was broken. The bed mattress was ripped. I would have asked to switch rooms, but had to be at a wedding two hours after checking in and didn't have time to deal with a room change or to discuss these problems with anyone. I had expected a hotel with such good reviews to hot have these problems. Additionally, the sofas in the lounge area were so dirty and moist that feared spoiling my cloths sitting on them. It's clear this hotel was nice once, I've no idea how it has kept its good rating. The maintenance and overall cleanliness is awful. And I don't blame the house keepers -the rooms were clean as much as a house keeper can do. I blame the managers for not doing a follow up and making sure things like soap scum, black spots in the shower, disgusting tile grout and disgustingly wet sofas in the lounge area are dealt with. Not to mention the broken shower head, toilet seat, toilet paper holder, torn mattress...

Great stay in front of the beach!
Great finding. I wanted a hotel that was near the beach and close to the Itapuã Lighthouse since I wanted to take some photos at sunrise. The hotel had everything I needed. I had the chance to stay in one of the rooms of Vinicius de Moraes house. It was a nice and comfy room. The bed was super comfy and those pillows were delicious. I wanted a relaxed weekend, so the hotel has everything for that. You have the beach, you have 2 pools, you have several seating areas in their garden, the food at the restaurant was great! There is taxi service available 24/7. The tourist double-decker bus stops by right in front of the hotel if you're into that. there are public buses outside too. The hotel has a bike rental station just outside if you need some cash. An ATM is at walking distance at a gas station. If you're looking for a place to stay near the beach, this is your place. If you want a place near the most popular touristic points, this might not be your location because almost all of them are 30kms away. (The view is quite beautiful though...because the road goes right by the side of the beach). I would stay here again. thank you for a wonderful stay.
