Hotel Monte Pascoal Hotel 4 star

Av Presidente Vargas 68 Salvador Bahia Salvador de Bahia, Brazil
Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Monte Pascoal offers a good compromise between seaside recreation and discovery. It is well-located on the seafront, and offers comfortable rooms. Recommended for its joyous atmosphere; those who prefer peace and quiet should not select this hotel.

    Location 6.29 /10

    The hotel is located in the Barra neighbourhood, on Avenida Oceânica, between Farol da Barra and Morro do Cristo. The historic centre is 20 minutes away by bus (15 minutes in a taxi, for R$ 15). The airport is 30 miles away. Count 40 minutes for transfers by taxi.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The 77 rooms of the Monte Pascoal all have balconies, and have front or side sea view. Basic light-coloured tiles, natural wood furniture, plywood headboard, orange curtains. Small surface (approximately 160 feet²). The walls, painted in white and bright red, would benefit from one or two paintings. However, despite a somewhat Spartan comfort and decor, the rooms are very clean. A surprising element: all rooms have a Wifi connexion. An electronic system informs the staff if you wish not to be disturbed...  All rooms have direct telephone, satellite television, safe and well-stocked mini-bar. Bathrooms are more attractive, in dark marble, and featuring a hair dryer. All rooms have air conditioning. 24 hour room service.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    The architecture of the Monte Pacoal, built in 1973 and renovated in 2005/2006, is not its greatest asset: the hotel erects its eight bistre concrete storeys without any decor other than flashy coloured balconies. The latter, on each façade, are all identical. Through the main entrance decorated with flags, one enters a rather dark lobby, brightened by yellow, black, and red easy chairs. Note that the ground floor, with the lobby, bar, and restaurant opening onto the patio swimming pool will be entirely renovated. Common areas are, indeed, in need of refurbishing. By the triangular pool (807 feet²), a solarium with deckchairs overlooks the bay, facing the sea. Attention: the avenue separating the hotel from the beach is noisy, and the neighbourhood is lively. Not recommended to those who seek peace and quiet!

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The restaurant serves buffet-style breakfast. Depending on your appetite, you can choose tropical fruits (papaya, mangoe, banana, pineapple, orange), cereals, cold cuts, cheese, scrambled eggs, sausages. Gourmets will also appreciate varied breads and brioches displayed on the buffet. The small, basic dining room overlooks the sea and the pool. It is furnished with rattan chairs and marble tables. For other meals, you can have a sandwich, salad, or à la carte local and international specialities (grilled meat, fish, pasta, stew).

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The public beach is separated from the hotel by Avenida Oceânica. It is medium-sized and opens onto a rough sea, with rock banks. Strong waves attract surfers and bodyboards. Swimming, however, is risky! No water sports available; the hotel provides parasols, deckchairs, and towels on demand. For safe swimming, go to da Barra beach, a twenty minute walk away along the pleasant sea shore.

    To know

    The Monte Pascoal benefits from a pleasant location on the sea front, along Avenida Oceânica. You will need to cross the avenue to reach the beach (praia do Farol) with troubled waters. The hotel offers amenities such as: fitness room, hammam, television room with chess board and pool table. All rooms overlook the sea, but you should request those facing the avenue: they have a front view.
    30% of the guests are German, French, and regional; 70% is Brazilian.
