Rooms were renovated, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The location was not ideal - stay closer to the restaurants and old town if you like to walk - however, cabs are pretty inexpensive if need be. The air conditioning for our room was not working and the water was not hot enough. The concierges spoke great English and were very helpful and accommodating. Bartender not so much; he really did not want to make me a mojito. The food was pretty good - for lunch. Decent gym - don't be put off because it's in the basement - nice walkout room with big corner windows with a beach view - they need water and towels though.

All is very unique at ZANK. From the reception area located in a colonial style house from the early parts of the 20th …More
Absolutely wonderful from check in to checkout. The staff was incredible. Eliseangela at the Front Desk is an absolute Jewel. But the entire staff left me in awe. I love Salvador and until I get lucky and can grab me one of those beachfront Apartments, this will be my home away from home. This was my second stay at The Pestana and I'm already counting down to my return.
Ppl at the buffet and pool bar are VERY nice... Front desk, not so much... Overall, very nice hotel, clean, new, it was more than what I expected! Especially with the price I paid for. However, keep in mind you have to pay extra for parking, and try to get a stay with breakfast included, its worth it!
