Very Good 8.0
I really enjoyed the staff’s pleasant attitude and welcoming vibe.

Fair 4.0
Lovely property, comfortable room, really nice facilities. Family friendly, our 2 year old had a blast. Unfortunately, we had an issue with our bathroom that took 2 days and 2 complaints to address - there was a strong smell of sewage coming from the bathtub that made it unpleasant to be in the bathroom. They did address it though, and our last 2 nights were fine. Food was hit or miss, I don’t recommend going to the “snack” buffet near the pools, you will be disappointed and that was our first impression of the food unfortunately. You also need to make reservations ASAP if you want to eat at a restaurant instead of the primary buffet (which isn’t bad). We noticed the staff was not very happy or helpful. We made the mistake of inviting a friend who lives nearby to pick us up and show us around, and I ordered them a draft beer. Before we were even halfway through a receptionist came and informed us in the most rude way possible that they are not allowed to drink. We apologized, and offered to pay, to which we were rudely told “we don’t offer that service” before walking away. Because of the lack of apology or reaction when we said the bathroom smelled of sewage (I really had to insist), this ride treatment of our guests (innocents mistake on our part), and the so-so quality of food, I would not recommend staying here. Stay near the villa instead, you can find ample food options for not much money, and they are all fantastic.

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.

Good 6.0
Poor attention to details: room for 2 adults and 1 infant and only one glass and one cup are provided. Poor choice of toiletries, in fact, no hair conditioner was provided, had to request separately. Poor choice of sea food: staying by the ocean we expected to have a wide range of sea food, at least shrimps should have been a daily option. On a positive note, very child-friendly place, lovely surroundings and lots of great facilities to use

Poor 2.0
Lovely spot by the beach but the hotel is a sprawling concrete monstrosity. It’s also a 20 min taxi from the town of Praia Do Forte which is where all the restaurants, shops, turtle sanctuary, castle etc is located. We also had a bad experience with trying to cancel the reservation, within 24 hours of booking it, as soon as we found out it was out of town. Expedia told us that there would be a 2 night cancellation policy despite the location of the hotel being wrongly advertised. They also then failed to adequately tell us that if we checked in without amending the reservation we would have to pay for the full length of stay. All in all a really poor and frustrating communication between ourselves Expedia and Iberostar. Both companies refused to accept responsibility and were blaming the other company, back and forth..... We ended up leaving early to stay somewhere much nicer but having to pay the full fee for the all Inclusive Iberostar. I won’t be using either companies again if I can help it ...
