Could not be happier with our stay here. Cannot wait to go back. The resort itself is beautiful, staff very attentive and the quality of food is the best we have seen so far in Brazil. The best feature of the hotel is the beach! It's incredible! At sunset, they usually have live music events on the beach, which are quite nice. I also enjoyed the relative proximity to Salvador, which was a perfect day trip for when you need a break from the beach. You can book a tour at the hotel. It is a family resort first, and is popular with families of small children, so while we personally did not have any issues, if you are looking for a couples retreat this may not be it. Kids have access to all amenities (even the infinity pool which is supposedly adults only). Having said that, we were there during summer (Christmas) holidays, and there may not be too families during regular season. One thing I didn't care for was that it is a "meia pensão", in a sense that your lunch is an out of pocket expense, but you can either buy it at the hotel or walk/drive over to Praia do Forte for more options. I feel like at that price point it could have been an all inclusive. Also, mind the little monkeys at breakfast! They love to invade the restaurant and raid the buffet table:) it is quite cute actually and big hit with the little ones.
"A resort with spectacular structure and not so much spectacular service ..."
The hotel is in a prime location with a beautiful beach. It has high-end resort infrastructure but does not have public areas served with air conditioning. This sometimes bothers you because the heat in Bahia in January, for example, is unbearable. The food, which once made the fame of this resort, nowadays it is a lack of standardization. For example, order a simple sandwich for three days in a row and it will be served in three different ways. The prices charged for food and drink in the pool do not match the quality of what is served.
Hotel atmosphere and facilities excellent! Too much salt on food The kids club circus instructor GG gave my granddaughter a great encouragement due to her impossibility to understand the kids. It was very important in my stay
"An unexpected surprise..."
Beach resorts were never our first choice, specially during big holidays. Different variables, plus lack of other good alternatives, brought us to Tivoli Ecoresort Praia do Forte (Bahia, Brazil) to stay for a week and celebrate the eve of 2017. It was an immense and pleasant surprise. Lots of people, dozens of families - I have to admit - but never a table was missing in the restaurant and we always could find a tent in the beach or a shadow in the pools. Service is top class, with well trained, attentive and always smiling personnel. The main restaurante works in the buffet system (we prefer the "a la carte" service), but the variety and quality of food they offer is really unbelievable. No economies in quality, quantity or cost to satisfy the most sophisticated taste. Two black points: (i) to make pair with such quality, the rooms (at least ours) deserve a renovation and (ii) a tide table near the beach would be very helpful. By the way, the New Years Party was superb!
"Felt like heaven"
We are coming back from our trip in Brazil and we have to say, it was fantastic. The last few days we stayed in a five star resort Tivoli Ecoresort Praia do Forte. It felt like in paradise. The reception was polite and friendly. After the long flight we got to enjoy the fresh coconut water. Friendly drivers led us to our room-(through the beautiful,tropical garden)- which was a wonderful surprise - a huge, sun-flooded room including comfortable beds, a big terrace mit sunloungers, jacuzzi and a broad view on the sea.The room was flooded with light and beautiful furnished.The bathroom spacious and clean. This room was really a dream... The service on the beach and everywhrere was excellent. Breakfast and dinner were delicious. The staff was charming and very helpful. We will return.....soon! Thank you so much Mr Joao Pinheiro, Mr Azevedes, Mr Santana, MrSantos and all the others that helped us to have such a wonderful time
