"Nice hotel on the new "orla", the beach promenade."
Stayed seven nights in August during a beach-oriented vacation in this small hotel with the basics and a warm atmosphere. There were tourists and families of all ages from Brazil and everywhere else and even a business team on a training. Has a pleasant restaurant that was a good backup for the beachside restaurants. There is a direct bus to the pelourinho and historic area and a short walk to an elaborate shopping mall. The beach, stretching from a point just across the street, is a mix of small diverse zones and has restaurants, bars and services stretching back for blocks. This beach is primarily for the locals but has a strong dose of tourists. There is everything from a zone for surfers, to sheltered pools where families play, to a rocky stretch where locals snorkel to fish, to a very busy area with a lot of stand up paddle board activity. The hotel has exercise equipment, shower, etc.. but the room is in the basement and damp. Upon arrival we were told to be careful about pickpockets, etc. by staff, taxi drivers etc. But we didn't see anything noteworthy after spending 8 days wandering among the very diverse crowd on the beach, orla and city streets. Just calls for the usual urban common sense and a consistent but warm 'no' to ubiquitous vendors.

My 17 year old son and I stayed at the Casa for 3 days during our World Cup Adventure. It was an excellent exprience. The owner is very pleasant and knowledgable and an excellent host and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We felt connected to the Brazilian locals, yet separated enough to have all the comforts of North America.
The first European explorers to reach Salvador settled in what is now Barra. The 16th century Farol da Barro fort offers an ideal spot to watch the sunset over All Saints Bay. The streets along Barra's beaches host a range of restaurants and shops to explore, and Porto da Barra beach is popular as a weekend getaway for both tourists and locals alike.
