    Location 5.12 /10

    Located in the Barra neighbourhood, on Avenida 7 de Setembro (between Santa Maria fort and the crafts centre, next to the Grande da Barra hotel). The historic centre is 20 minutes away by bus (10 minutes in a taxi, for R$ 15). The airport is 28.5 miles away. Count 40 minutes for transfers by taxi.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The best asset of the hotel. The Marazul has 116 standard rooms and 8 suites. The 9th floor, renovated shortly before our last stay, features bright corridors painted in pastel green tones. All rooms are furnished with light-coloured furniture and yellow fabrics. A painting, a large mirror, plenty of storage space, small surface (130 feet²) but good comfort. The rooms have individually controlled air conditioning, bathroom with shower cabin, welcome toiletries, hair dryer, well-stocked mini-bar, telephone (direct international access), safe, and satellite television. Two-thirds of the rooms have a front or side sea view; the remaining rooms have a view of the surrounding buildings. If possible, request a suite: they are much more spacious than standard rooms and have a very pleasant sitting room. 24/24 room service.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    A grey-white concrete tower, the Marazul was built in 1951 and has nine storeys facing All Saints bay. The lobby, unfortunately dark, is furnished with leatherette sofas in green, heterogeneous tones. The overhanging terrace on the first floor is a nice area to relax by the shore, lying on a deckchair and protected from the sun by parasols. If you want, dive into the round swimming pool located in the centre of the terrace. It is not large enough for lap swimming, but it is ideal for playing in the water!

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    On the first floor, the small dining room overlooks the swimming pool: it is furnished with tables covered with white tablecloths, rattan chairs, unfortunately too close to each other. The breakfast buffet offers a great variety of dishes: tropical fruits (papaya, mangoe, banana, pineapple, orange), omelettes, cereals, and pastries. A great way to start your day! For lunch, one dish (fish, grilled meat) and for dinner, a nice buffet. All you can eat of salads, five or six hot dishes (meat with sauce, pasta, vegetable gratins) and sweets (custard, pastry, fruit salad).

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The Avenida 7 de Setembro separates the hotel from the beach. The beach is a small semi-rocky cove between Porto da Barra and Farol da Barra. The water is generally rough, thus not ideal for swimming. Since it is a public beach, there are no amenities. However, the hotel will provide deckchairs, towels, and parasols. Fifteen minutes away on foot, Barra beach is more convenient and more enjoyable for swimming.

    To know

    The Marazul was entirely renovated in 2001 and in 2006. A fitness room, baby club, and massages are available. The rooms, in particular, benefited from the last renovation. This hotel is facing the sea and not too far from the historic centre. Be aware of the fact that its amenities are limited to a fairly small outdoor swimming pool (538 feet²).
    Guests are primarily Argentinean.

      The Pestana Convento do Carmo is a superbly restored former Carmelite convent and the indisputable jewel in the Salvador da Bahia crown.
