Sunrise from the ocean - what a beautiful way to wake in the morning. Almost all of the rooms have balconies overlooking the pool and the ocean. If the old adage "Location, location, location!" is true Gran Hotel Stella Maris is on the edge of Paradise. The hotel rooms are clean and spacious. Maintenance seems to be ongoing to keep...

We were so excited about this trip, some of our friends had told us about the resort, but a part of the nice beach and friendly receptionist, Fabiana. The hotel is lacking in cleaning staff, the yards mare neglected and all the amenities are obsolete... It is pitiful that bad management had.

This is the third hotel that I stay in Salvador and the worst experience. The internet doesn't work, the room wasn't so clean, there're no towels. Terrible service in general. I did a lot of complains and nothing worked.

The building is average, nothing fancy, a little dated but very functional.The pool area was very nice. A good size pool with plenty of chases, chairs and tables. Bar service in the pool was a little slow. The room was a good size, shower worked very well and housekeeping was very good. Towels seem to be at a premium, but...

I stayed there one week during my business trip in Salvador. Hotel is not perfect but good. I felt safe there. Large room, comfortable bed, worn furniture. Good meal. Slow internet connection. Nice swimming pool and beach. I was first time in Brazil and I was satisfied.

Hotel well located with good structure. However, poor maintenance in the rooms - broken furniture, damaged walls and dirty environment. Friendly service and educated staff. Little varied breakfast and the staff can not keep it organized.

I stayed at this hotel on business and didn't have a great experience. I was sharing the room with a colleague and we both felt the room wasn't clean. There were spots on the floor and stains on the sheets. On our 2nd night there we found a "nest" of small roaches in our room. We went to the reception...

It's not a 5*. Or perhaps it was but it is showing its age. Still, quite acceptable if you don't pay full price. Also, they have swimming pool group activities but the sound system is loud and distorted. Ask for a room on the other side if you want peace and quiet. On the plus side, it's right by the...
