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

5-star all-inclusive beachfront resort with full service spa

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. One glance at the rich, colorful landscape and you'll understand why this area has been called the "Brazilian Polynesia."

Beaches and biodiversity

At the Iberostar Praia do Forte All Inclusive, you'll have pools, tennis courts, a kids' club, a golf course and pristine beaches at your doorstep. Just down the road is the Projeto Tamar, a sea turtle conservation program the whole family will enjoy visiting.

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.

Iberostar Praia do Forte All Inclusive, Mata de Sao Joao
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.
