Beautiful accomodations with a perfect location.

We are in the hotel now. We arrived 2 days ago and we, my husband and I with our 2 children are comfortably nestled into one of the 2 bedroom apartments. We don't have photos downloaded yet but will post them later. The apartment is spacious with wood floors, big windows and a large veranda with a nice view of the boardwalk and the beach. The apartment is outfitted well with a minifrig in each room, a large sofa, safe boxes and a well equipped kitchen. The apartment has tall ceilings with fans in each room, we have not had to use the air conditioners yet. The weather has been not so hot and almost cool in the evenings. The breakfast is large and has something for everyone in our family and the coffe is especially delicious. We don't speak portugese, so we can't communicate with the staff but they are attentive at their jobs and seem nice. Also, the manager speaks english and has good suggestions. So, we can recommend our first stay.

Unique Quality: The location is perfect for beachlife.

Directions: Beachfront street with restaurants, bars, small shops, bus stops and small supermarket close to the hotel.

Hotel for Prostitution

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 15, 2012

When I stayed at this hotel/pousada I was treated well by the Brazilian staff.
Unfortunately the American owner, (Brian) who is originally from California and stayed illegally in Brazil tried to push local prostitutes on the American travelers. He inappropriately complained about that there was no cure for the AIDS virus and asked me to help him with his construction renovations because I am a professional architect. He mentioned that he would gladly give me a discount at check out time. When the day arrived to check out he decided to over charge me and never honored the work that I did for him for the newly renovated bakery/cafe. He threatened to kill me with a baseball bat that he keeps in his bedroom because he said that I talked badly about him to his staff. This guy is a paranoid individual and potential travelers should steer clear from this place.

Don't go here

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)

I booked a room from their internet pages www.villagenovo.com and paid forehand for an apartment.

When I arrived there was a big hassle and then the girl offered me and my friend a normal room. I waited for about an hour for the American owner to arrive and he said that he had booked the suite for someone else, because of a problem in their computer system.

After long negotiations he paid me back part of the money that I had paid to him.. Don't trust this guy. Don't pay your room before you see the room that you are going to get. I honestly think that some of the tips here about that place are ads written by themselves.

Village Novo: Not so good

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 1, 2006

I have been to Salvador in April 2006, and I decided to stay at Village Novo Hotel, due to the tips I read at VT. My first impression of the hotel was really dissapointing, it doesn´t look a hotel but a cybercafe. The building and the rooms are quite old and, worst of all, the beach front rooms were extremely noisy!!!! Not only the street (many traffic) but the noise coming from the reception!!!! The first night was almost impossible to sleep, and the day after, we found a big insect in the breakfast!!!! We moved to a inner room because we paid the hotel in advance, but I strongly recommend not to book here.

Unique Quality: None

Very convenient location, right across Porto da Barra beach, none of the buzz of Pelo, along a busy & lively street, cafe & internet downstairs!

The Finest Pousada Money Can Buy (for Cheap)

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 27, 2005

A beautiful old world mansion, with original tiles, stained glass windows and a brand new internet cafe and bakery serving sandwiches & homemade breads! Each room is spectacularly appointed with conveniences and touches that other pousadas leave behind. Embroidered towels, ceiling fans that actually WORK, impeccable service and an on-site owner with a resource to EVERYTHING and EVERYONE in the city you might need to know. I absolutely recommend this accomodation to anyone looking for the best comfort as the price is more affordable than most large hotels, yet you'll feel like you're staying at the home of a really good friend.

Unique Quality: Fantastic terrace overlooking Bahia de Todos Santos. Affordable 1 bedroom apartment complete with full kitchen and living room. Beautiful tiled bathrooms & charming showers with HOT water continuously!!! Central air!!! European and American outlets!!!

AND this place is across the street from Virgina, the best, most UNKNOWN Baiana with the FINEST acaraje on earth! If you visit, tell her Atlanta & Tronn (the Noreiguense) send their love! (she may give you a free acaraje if you mention us!!)

Directions: Barra

The rooms are cleaned , and the thick white towels and the bedsheets are changed every day.
