I gave this review this title as I have never felt so completely at one with nature and comfortable at the same time. Our room was stunning, really cosy beds and a large balcony overlooking the ocean which was forever changing. In the mornings there are a mass of rock pools, which are great for snorkelling and in the afternoon...

My travel agent Brasil Planet helped me find this hotel as I was having a hard time finding a suitable hotel in Praia do Forte online. It is literally ON the beach, near (200m) the famous lighthouse. The beach has many natural pools at low tide where fish get trapped and great for snorkeling. The towncenter is less than 500m...

The staff of this hotel are special. They are warm and gracious as well as helpful. I also enjoyed all meals at the restaurant. For me, the major drawback is lack of sound isolation and important differences among rooms that go for the same price. I had prebooked and prepaid. When I arrived the hotel was very busy with a...

We stayed 6 nights at Pousada Porto da Lua and felt very happy all time: the hotel has a nice size, not too big, not too small! Mostly all rooms have sea view.There is a light brise blowing all day and night and the rush of the sea is omnipresent and sounds like holiday. Snorkeling is ideal at low tide...

My wife and I have stayed at Porto da Lua for a week during three separate yearly trips to Brazil. The staff at this small pousada are terrific and arrange transportation from Salvador airport to the pousada and return. The food (Breakfast and Dinner) at the pousada is also excellently prepared. It is the only pousada in Praia do Forte...

We spent 3 nights in this pusada, and had a great time. You literally sit on the beach, which is great. The water is a little complicated to access due to the rocks, so don't forget some shoes for the water. The staff is very nice and helpful, good cuisine too! And you can walk to the city center if...

Spent 4 nights here with my husband after a hectic 3 weeks working in Rio for the Olympics. Weather was mixed with 2 days rain, 2 days sunshine, though that didn't matter so much as the idea was to catch up on sleep and relax. Staff had limited English, but we managed to get by.

Lovely Pousada right on the beach with friendly and very helpful front desk staff. Simple and clean room with beautiful sea view. Lovely to go to sleep to the sound of the waves.

Porto da Lua is the only Hotel right on the beach and is a model of splendid tropical architecture. We have 26 very comfortable rooms, 22 of them with a spectacular view over the ocean and the reef.
