    Location 10.0 /10

    The Sofitel is located in the centre of Costa do Sauipe complex, not far from shops and boutiques, pharmacy, etc. The resort is located 43 miles from the international airport, or one hour and fifteen minutes by car, and 53 miles from the fabulous historic centre of Salvador da Bahia, or two and a half hours by car.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    The hotel 404 rooms are distributed in three 3-storey buildings. They are accessed through elevators; However these long buildings have long corridors. Otherwise, comfort is high class. Rooms are spacious (375 feet² to 755 feet², depending on their location by the gardens or the sea). The decoration is luxurious, simple, and efficient. Dark exotic wood furniture blends well with mural paintings in clear and ochre tones. Also, there are modern lighting and a very comfortable king size bed draped in impeccable white bedding. All rooms have satellite television, three direct telephones with international access, safe (free), full mini-bar, discreet individual air conditioning with fan, terrace with wooden furniture (1 table and 2 chairs), hammock, large light marble bathroom with a large shower cabin, welcome toiletries, numerous towels, hair dryer. Toilets are inside the room. 24/24 room service.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Built in early 2000, and renovated in 2005 (exterior façades), the Sofitel Costa do Sauipe includes four attractive, three-storey main buildings, in white and brown tones, nestled in the middle of coconut palms, palm trees, and bougainvilleas. The Interior decoration is fancy but not luxurious, and inspired by the theme of the discovery of Brazil. In fact, a caravel model is displayed by the lobby-bar facing the front desk. The swimming pool can be reached through the vast entrance hall and the alleys leading to the bridge crossing the mangrove swamp. The curvy swimming pool, with bridges and plants, is the entertainment centre of the hotel. Note that the hotel has the largest swimming pool of the complex, which is relative: It is large and pretty, but shallow (5 feet maximum). Swimming champions should go to the beach! The fitness room is nearby, and so are the pool bar and the seafood restaurant.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Two main restaurants. The first one, Terra Brazil, serves all three meals buffet-style. Its dining room is strongly air conditioned, and has a patio outside. Good quality local and international cuisine: starters, fruits and homemade pastries on one side; soups, fishes, vegetables and meats on the other side. The second restaurant, "Mercado do Peixe", is located on a sheltered patio by the swimming pool. It offers local à la carte fish and seafood specialities. Both have classy furniture and a well thought fitting out: Tables are sufficiently spaced out. There are also two speciality restaurants: A French gourmet restaurant (managed by the French chef Marc Le Cornec) and a Brazilian speciality restaurant (serving the famous "Acarajes", fried beans and snake, authentic Bahia dish). Lastly, two bars are available to guests.

    Beach 8.70 /10

    The beach is 10 minutes away from the swimming pool, through a path along the mangrove swamp. The beach is equipped with deckchairs and sunshades and stretches as far as the eye can see. It is spacious and covered with sand. Even though the ocean can be rough (the beach is windy), swimming is possible, and the beach is guarded. Fine sand, clear water. There are, however, rocks. The area is lively, but can be quiet because it is very vast. Most of all, the setting is exotic, natural, and unspoiled.

    To know

    The hotel is located in Costa do Sauipe, a very trendy seaside resort located a few hour drive north of Salvador da Bahia, along splendid beaches, and considered by Bahia people as the new 'Saint-Tropez'. An entire complex was built (see accommodations, Salvador da Bahia - link) in the last few years with several good category hotels such as the Sofitel hotels.
    The Sofitel Costa do Sauipe is next to the Sofitel Suites. Many similarities between these two hotels, as well as a few differences. The first hotel is perfect for adults and couples, while the second hotel is better suited for families.
    Good to know:
    All sports come with an additional fee, with the exception of tennis courts.
    The fitness room belongs to the hotel, but the guests of the neighbouring Sofitel Suites (only) have access to it. Same thing for the swimming pool, restaurants, and massages.
    -No foreign exchange bureau, but guests can pay in euro and in US dollars.
    -Every night, the lobby-bar offers soft entertainment (piano bar) and an entertainment team including 20 people organise activities.

      The Costa do Sauipe Golf and Spa is the largest and most animated of the Costa do Sauipe complex, which includes 5 resorts located some 47 mi north of Salvador de Bahia. Facing a large beach with fine sand, the complex includes many boutiques, bars, restaurants, a nautical centre, a spa, an equestrian centre, a fitness centre, a golf course, and numerous sports facilities. Greek travel specialist Heliades has established its Club Olympien Sauipe Fun at this hotel, which, as its name suggests, operates on an all-inclusive basis.
