    Location 7.0 /10

    Located on Itaparica Island, 19 miles off the coast of Bahia. The airport is 31 miles away. Count 2h30 for transfers by ferry and taxi.

    Accommodation 7.50 /10

    Entirely renovated in 2006, the Club Med Itaparica has 330 rooms with a view of the coconut grove. Medium-sized (225 feet²), the rooms have a small terrace on the ground floor, or a balcony on the first floor. New rooms are pleasantly decorated with naïve paintings on the walls, and similarly inspired bedspreads. Furniture is light-coloured, floors are wood. All rooms have individually controlled air conditioning and are well-equipped: refrigerator, safe, television, and direct telephone. The bathrooms have a shower, and a small basket of welcome toiletries. Room service all day until midnight.

    Overview 8.25 /10

    The greatest asset of the Club Med Itaparica is its space: the Village, built on stilts, is, indeed, built in an immense, 74-acre coconut grove along the Atlantic Ocean. Nestled in the vegetation, the rooms and common areas are distributed among one-storey buildings with ochre façades and red tile roofs. The lobby is widely open to the outside, bordered with beige brick columns, and decorated with wooden sculptures. However, the area is rather sober. Regarding activities, golf enthusiasts can practice on the driving range (for an additional fee) located at the back of the domain. There is a circus school, initiating guests to flying trapeze. For relaxing, an L-shaped swimming pool overlooks the sea (3,230 feet²). It is surrounded by a large solarium well-equipped with deckchairs and parasols. A snack-bar with a large, shaded patio is available.

    Food and drink 8.25 /10

    The Club restaurant is located in a large room with exposed tile roof supported by beams. It is divided in several sections and widely open onto the outside; the tables are in white-leaded wood. Decor is functional and elaborate. However, when the room is full, it is too hot! There are some fans, but they lack efficiency. Buffets offer wide choices for all three meals. Breakfast is a festival of delicious foods: fresh fruits, brioches, rolls, crepes and omelettes prepared on request, yoghurts, cold cuts, cheeses, etc. For lunch and dinner, buffets offer a farandole of salads, pasta, vegetable gratins, meat and fish with sauce, and always at least one Bahia speciality such as fejoada (meat stew with beans). In addition, there are two speciality restaurants: one Italian restaurant located under the buffet and open for dinner (upon reservation, and à la carte), and one Brazilian restaurant open for lunch and dinner, located next to the mini-club.

    Beach 7.50 /10

    The beach forms a long crescent overlooking Bahia bay, bordered with coconut palms. The beach is large (particularly during low tide), but covered with thick sand. Since the slope into the water is mild, it is recommended to wait for high tide to swim. Numerous plastic deckchairs. Towels are available with deposit. The sports available are sailing and windsurfing.

    To know

    The Club Med Itaparica is located off the coast of Salvador, at the end of Itaparica Island. Located in All Saints bay, this island is 45 minutes from Bahia by ferry, and 20 minutes by catamaran.
    For arrival and departure transfers, count 2h 30one way: bus from the airport to Bahia harbour, then ferry.
    The Club Med Itaparica will suit couples as well as families. Children 4 to 12 years old, and teenagers 13 to 16 years old are entertained by activity leaders who offer a wide variety of activities. Adults have a choice between basking in the shade of coconut palms, and enjoying sports or other activities (painting workshops, Portuguese language classes, Brazilian dancing, golf, scuba diving, circus school, etc.).
    Be aware that a thorough renovation of the club is planned for June 2006 and will take the entire month.
