                    6.6

                    I was charged r$355 on my credit card by "Pestana Curitiba" during this stay. This is not right, since I stayed in Pestana Bahia, and payed all the charges when I left. I assume the r$355 was some kind of "no show charge", but I did not no show !! I cannot risk this kind of un-traceble charge, so I will not be using Booked.net any more

                  • Couple
                    7.0

                    Nice location (sea front), although need a car or ~10 minutes walk to main road to catch a bus to the center.

                    This hotel used to be a 5stars run by Meridien. Now the Pestana group still sells it as such, but runs it with personal, occupancy rate and maintenance budget < a 3 stars, so the experience is definitely no longer the same... Ok if you are just passing by, but if you are planning to relax I'd rather recommend the Mercure, 200m away, cheaper, more modern and not filled with mid-class families from the "Pestana Holiday club..." Also, they are overly aggressive in selling a package of 80 weeks of holidays to be used in the next 15 years...

                  • Single
                    4.6

                    Just has good ocean view & accessible dance club downstairs. but the price of the entrance fee to the club is not reasonable.

                    Not a good value for money. Hotel needs renovation. I could hardly close my door. Swimming pools are too small. It's better in pictures. The surroundings are not that nice. I think it would be better if I book somewhere near Barra beach. Honestyly, I would not rate this as 5 or 4 star hotel.

                  • Older travelers
                    3.8

                    The room was nice.

                    It was dirty, service was poor, food ordered a la carte at dinner was absolutely inedible, although breakfast was fine...as was the grilled cheese sandwich in the lobby at lunch. This hotel seriously needs to be gutted and started over rather than the renovation effort going on which is trying to hide the warts with paint.

                    6.2

                    Only location

                    It´s too expensive for the quality of the room,it´s rather old design and the bedsheet were tore

                  • Single
                    7.4

                    The room is good, the staff is friendly, the location is nice and safe.

                    1. Maintenance of some areas would benefit this 5 star hotel. 2. The listed room price does not include 15% of local taxes. Although this was stated on the booking page, it is not fair to the other hotels that list the full price

                  • Group of friends
                    6.4

                    It is in dire need to bringing up to date and seriously lacks day to day maintenance.

                  • Older travelers
                    6.2

                    Friendly and helpful staff and good breakfast

                    The rooms were Ok but the swimming pool was old and in poor condition. Far from the old city of Salvador.

                  • Single
                    4.2

                    Nothing. The hotel is decaying rapidly, the athmosphere is of a two-star in a run-down neighborhood. The restaurant buffet is among the worst I have ever seen in Brazil, would be better placed in a mid-level school. No value for money, totally overpriced. By all means avoid this hotel until prices have been adjusted to what it is really worth.

                    Overpriced.

                  • Couple
                    8.8

                    We eventually enjoyed staying at the hotel a lot, and considered it very good value. It has a fantastic location, right on the rocky coast of the Atlantic, and is near Rio Vemelho centre, which we preferred to Barra and Ondina, feeling like more friendly place in the evenings, with more restaurants and cafes. The hotel itself in huge, and is like a kind of 70/80's icon of architecture and style. Ok, it is well past its glory- days, and to be honest could do with quite a lot of touching- up, but if you can look past the rough-edges it is a very enjoyable place to stay, with a large swimming-pool and outdoor bar-area, and other facilities such as sauna and gym. The rooms themselves are perhaps the best thing, all with the most spectacular high-rise sea- views, and large, comfortable beds. I need to add however, that all of this came after a very poor arrival-day, which gave a very bar first- impression (described below).

                    We arrived from an early flight, knowing that we could probably not check in at that time, but found the hotel reception at first very uninformative, telling us we should just come back later. Then, another staff-member said we could have breakfast, (charged later), but when we came back from that, hoping to get more information, we found a line of about 40 people waiting to check out, and all 3 reception staff (in a hotel with 20 floors) busy continually. This situation continued till about 2 in the afternoon, and it was later explained that a number of bus-groups were checking out (apparently ignoring check-out deadline). After waiting all morning by pool and walking around the town in the heat and standing in line for 30 minutes from 1.30 - 2 we eventually got our room, which we were told was available earlier (if we could have got anywhere near desk). To be fair, amends were later made by management, after a complaint, who blamed it on unhelpful staff-member, but we thought it seemed more like poor planning and surveillance by management. One other thing, drinks etc were expensive (compared to a similar hotel in Salvador).
