    Location 8.71 /10

    On the edge of Praia do Forte, a fishing village 50 mi from Salvador de Bahia, 2,625 ft from the bustling commercial street where you will find bars, restaurants and shops. Salvador de Bahia airport is 31 mi away, around a 45-minute taxi journey.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    Take a deep breath! Smell the local wood! The bedrooms at the Praia Do Forte Ecoresort are also done out in a purely ecolodge style where the emphasis is placed on nature with entirely tropical decor. Two large pictures depicting a tropical bird face each other, one hanging above the bed. The rooms are spacious (323 sq ft) and open broadly to the outside thanks to the wide picture windows that overlook the terrace. Here you will find the inevitable hammock: there's nothing better when it comes to enjoying a good siesta! All offer beautiful views of the ocean. They are tiled and have a king-size bed, a marble-tiled table and two chairs. You will find all the facilities you would expect of an upmarket hotel: satellite television (52 channels), free electronic safe deposit box, individual air-conditioning, mini-bar (payable) and telephone with Internet access. Room service is available 24 hours a day.
    Bathrooms are clean and nicely decorated, combining marble and wood for a natural touch. They include a shower, Amazonian plant-based hospitality products, a make-up mirror, tissues, cotton buds, a clothes line, a hair-dryer, bathrobes and a separate toilet with a bidet. Those who prefer a bathtub will need to book a deluxe room, with a floor area of 581 sq ft. These are really something: double vanity unit, two plasma screens and two deckchairs with soft, thick cushions for those who want to sleep outdoors on the terrace. The lounge area is separated from the bedroom by a wooden sliding door. This is far from the concrete standard room - this really is Nature! Coconut, tropical plants and bamboo lamps are all there. There is also a sofa-bed suitable for two children - the ideal solution for families.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The Ecoresort Praia Do Forte was built in 1985 and has been member of the Portuguese Tivoli Collection hotel group since 2007, the year in which it was last renovated. Two one-storey buildings house the resort's 293 bedrooms, where the predominance of wood gives it the appearance of a lodge in its vast 3,229,173 sq ft tropical grounds where you could come across monkeys, iguanas, ducks and many tropical birds. The grounds are adorned with fountains and pool and you will also discover the ruins of a former farm from the times of the Portuguese settlers. Guests have a choice of 8 swimming pools in which to cool off! The main large rectangular infinity pool which merges with the sea is open between 8am and 8pm and is surrounded by a wooden solarium terrace with palm-leaf parasols, wooden deckchairs with large, comfortable, chic white cushions and showers. The lawn all around gives the place a welcome touch of greenery.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The main meals of the day are served at the Goa buffet, a vast, well decorated, palapas-roofed room which can accommodate up to 400 guests, with show cooking and a musical atmosphere. Dishes vary from day to day. Breakfast is served between 7.30am and 10.30am and dinner between 7.30pm and 10pm. Lunch is served in the à la carte Tabaréu restaurant, which also has a palm-leafed palapas roof, where guests can sample Brazilian cuisine between 12.30pm and 4pm. It also serves as an open-air beach restaurant. A sushi bar is also available three times a week. A Sombra do Coqueiral, a third, more gourmet restaurant, serves à la carte Mediterranean cuisine for lunch and dinner in romantic surroundings near the adult swimming pool and the beach: a very peaceful setting. The Mirante bar, overlooking the sea, serves delicious cocktails and offers a superb panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Beach 8.45 /10

    A small set of steps leads down to the beach. A water sports centre open between 9am and 5pm offers activities such as diving, wind-surfing, hobby-cat sailing and kayaking. Whale-watching trips are also organised between September and December. Wooden deckchairs complete with cushions and palm-leaf parasols are set back on the lawn so as not to bother the sea turtles who come to lay their eggs on the beach. Likewise, the bars and restaurants are also set back, leaving the beach completely unspoilt. The hotel beach is sheltered in a small bay but once you get past the village of Praia Do Forte some 15 minutes' walk away to the left (around 2,625 ft), the sea is rather choppy with large waves: a surfers' paradise! International competitions are regularly held on this part of the beach. There is no shortage of space on this vast beach (7 mi) which is as unspoilt now as it has ever been! Be careful of the waves and the current, though, as the beach is not supervised. When the sea draws out at low tide, it leaves behind small natural pools where you can swim safely.

    To know

    If you are taking your laptop with you, go along to the business centre and enjoy the free Wi-Fi Internet access. Children from 0-12 years of age are treated like kings here thanks to the practically VIP baby-club and mini-club with its large swimming pool with slide and waterfall and a special kitchen and restaurant for the little ones!
    The thalassotherapy centre boasts a floor area of 484,376 sq ft, which is a quarter of the resort area! It is open between 9am and 11pm and has two saunas, a hammam, a whirlpool bath, a hair and beauty salon, 9 massage rooms, a coldwater pool, a tiled outdoor heated pool, a relaxation area and a snack bar serving light meals. The beach spa offers massage overlooking the ocean. The more athletic can let off steam in the fitness centre, a large room with a palm-leaf roof where, thanks to the ecolodge concept, wood is omnipresent!
    Praia do Forte houses the Tamar turtle protection project as well as the fort after which the village is named.

    Accommodation advice

    All bedrooms have a sea view but the deluxe rooms are notably just in front of the others. They are spacious and have a double sofa-bed, ideal for families with children.

      The Pousada Sobrado da Vila is a charming little hotel located at the heart of the village of Praia do Forte, to the north of Salvador de Bahia. It is ideal if you want to get a feel for the Brazilian way of life. Far removed from the big resorts that are starting to spring up in the region, this small and simple establishment is the perfect place to relax, with its pretty little swimming pool, small tropical garden and restaurant bar. It is well equipped to welcome children too.

      The Ibérostar Bahia is an all-round resort with an all-inclusive (24 hours a day) reservation system, and it borders a superb barren beach, 3 mi north of the fishing village Praia do Forte. 5 swimming pools, 6 restaurants, an 18-hole golf course, a superb mini-club, this hotel will satisfy both sports lovers and families. Its only weak spot is the absence of a real spa.

      The Vila Gale is not a villa like its name might suggest but a massive "all-inclusive" resort on a large and beautiful beach between Praia do Forte and Salvador de Bahia. Entertainment, sport, water sports, spa, miniclub, the equipment and facilities are not lacking: the establishment has the second biggest swimming pool in Brazil. It's a hotel for the entire family.
