Overlooking All Saints bay, the Bahia Othon Palace, built in the 1970s and renovated in 2003, is a 12-storey, L-shaped building. The outside architecture is dull: this building is not much different than a council housing building. However, inside, the surface of the lobby and bar, on a different level, is surprisingly immense. The decor is sober but efficient, lacking charm. One original detail: a reproduction of the Pelourinho (Salvador's historic centre) façades around the bar, located at the end of the lobby. For recreation, the outdoor swimming pool, accessed through several stairs, is rather small compared to the hotel capacity. It features a nice slide for children and a good size solarium, unfortunately poorly equipped. Only a few plastic deckchairs. One good aspect is the view: the Atlantic Ocean panorama is truly superb. The Bahia Othon Palace also offers a small wellness centre, with a fitness room facing the sea, sauna, and massages on request.
