About Iberostar Selection Praia do Forte All Inclusive, Mata de Sao Joao

Coastal paradise

80 km north of Salvador da Bahia, this luxurious, all-inclusive resort places you directly on the white sands of Praia do Forte beach, away from the noise and crowds of the city.

Eat, play, relax

Guests can savor a surf and turf dinner at Maresias Beach Restaurant, or learn to eat with chopsticks at Oriental Mai Tai Restaurant. Parents can indulge in a spa treatment while kids enjoy planned activities at the pool.

Comfortable luxury

Spacious guestrooms open to balconies where you can put your feet up and enjoy the spectacular views. You'll feel pampered under the rainfall showers and right at home in front of the 32-inch flat screen TVs.

Great Hotel , but the beach ...............
It's a very big hotel , because of it some small things are not perfect . The beach in front of the hotel is not soo good because of the sea that is too much strong there . The location is around 5 km from the village you must walk an hour or pay US$ 40 for a taxi . The food are quite perfect , only the beer is a little bit hot ( they must improve it ) . The rooms are good , but its important to choose well , there are many at bad places , we take the 7061 and 7249 the second was better.

Beautiful location
This was my 4th or 5th time staying at this hotel. The grounds are beautiful, the hotel is very clean and the service was very good. There is a wide choice of restaurants in addition to the main buffet and several bars around the resort. English is not widely spoken other than at the main reception desk, however I did not have any problems getting anything I ordered. I recommend this hotel if you are looking for an all inclusive break away from the main city of Salvador.
