We have spent New Years at the hotel, on the presidential suite. The suite had most amazing views over the beach, two jacuzzis and was suitable for our 4 persons family. The amenities could have been better but the bed was comfy and everything was Ok despite noticing some use on the furniture and exterior terrace. The food was average...

I've been at this hotel many times and for sure it's still one of the best all inclusive resorts of Brazil. It's getting more and more expensive year after year, but it's still rewarding. For me building 6 is the best option to stay if you have kids and want to be in the center of everything and activities going...

Our ocean-view suites were better than I had anticipated. The rooms were clean, in good repair, and made-up fresh every day. The staff was exceptional, very friendly, and helpful. Food service throughout the property was above average for facility of this magnitude. Great swimming pools, and very decent ocean frontage.

If I had to describe this resort in one word, I would certainly call it magic. In fact, it's very well located, close to a turtle reserve, and the environment is amazing: white sand beach, turquoise sea, paths dotted with palm trees: a real piece of heaven! The rooms are big, clean and some have a view on the beach....

A top resort with all inclusive service. In comparison somehow expensive. Located about an hour drive from Salvador airport (I strongly recommend you to call a Uber Taxi, to get there) sunshine and summer weather guaranteed. Place for family or for couple without children. Not really for someone looking for funny nights. The hotel structure is awesome, and although 8...

The hotel has an incredible location, by a paradise beach. It is perfect for a quiet stay as it is located about 1h20 from Salvador de Bahia. The closest village "Praia do Forte" stays about 10 minutes by taxi. Due to the location, you can find everything on the spot: different restaurants, kids' playgrounds including pool slides, golf course, there...

If you plan to go to an All Inclusive Resort, consider THIS spot - do not confuse with the other Iberostar - it is clean on the room, great amenities, good service, people are nice and kind.
