Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

    Good value quality hotel directly on coast
    Nice quality hotel in safe area midway between Barra port and Rua Vermelho area. Very quiet area. Hotel has nice pool and bar. Rooms facing sea are worth extra fee.

    Great value for money quality hotel
    Excellent value - quality for money. One of best hotels in this price range in Salvador. Well located directly on the coast in a nice relatively safe residential area. Definitely worth pay little more for a room with sea view.. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    Good but a little dated
    Good but a little dated hotel. The hotel has great view over the Atlantic ocean and staff is superb. Breakfast and A la carte food is good (unfortunately only available 2 days a week) but I would skip the dinner buffe and eat in a restaurant instead. Location near the Barra lighthouse where you can find some shops and restaurants. Apart from that, no exciting location to be honest. Guided tours can be booked in the lobby, big +

    Wonderful scenic Vila Gale location
    Location, breakfast, staff, and amazing view of the bay; close to the Shopping Barra and Rio Vermelho with outdoor restaurants and on the bus route to downtown Salvador and the Pelourinho

    Nice time
    It was a pleasant stay, I’ve marked it down because when they realised I was staying on my own they downgraded my room. I asked them not to but they did anyway. I was meant to be in an executive room but they changed it. Some of the staff are nice some just unhelpful. Breakfast was alright. Whatever you do make sure you, if your looking at the sea with your back to the hotel, turn right and head to the marina it’s beautiful. I took a trip with the tour people located inside the hotel by reception and I can’t recommend it enough. I went to the turtle conservation and it was brilliant, you have to pay to get in $25 and snorkelling is $60 extra.
