Cosy bungalows outside Salvador da Bahia Jul 16, 2007
I booked this bungalow over the internet, as I liked the Afro- Brazilian style of the bungalows, but I must honestly admit that I was very disappointed about the owner of these hotel bungalows.He turned out to be an xtremely unpleasant person, a German immigrant living in Brazil for 10 years,he was always slating the Brazilian people, especially the people living in Salvador, and his own staff. We were picked up in the airport by the owner himself, great honour LOL.He was driving like a mad and at the same time complaining about everything.Thanks to God we arrived in one piece at the hotel:)He would enter the kitchen in the morning shouting at his staff, all of them were black people, inclusive his beautiful wife, a mixed African- Indian woman always smiling and happy:):)
The bungalow was ok, with a king size bed. We had very tasty food, cooked on a very old stove. The bungalows were situated about 45 minutes drive from the center of Salvador, close to the sea. Unfortunately we did not have so good weather, so we did not enjoy the sea.We left the bungalow 2 days before we were supposed to check out. Firstly because we met a very nice couple, a dad and his daughter, who booked a recommended youth hostel in the center of Salvador. Secondly because our bungalow were invaded by termites and we did not seem to get rid of them.
I would not recommend this bungalow, mainly because of the xtremely unpleasant owner.

Hotel Lagoa E Mar Camacari Overview
Recover on the mile long sandy beach and relax in the nearly all-year warm sea at "one of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil" (magazine GEO, Spain) in Praia de Jauá with its miles long beaches. The beach of Jauá is situated north of Salvador da Bahia at the 'Estrada do Coco' surrounded by snow like white dunes. It is very popular. At some parts reefs form natural pools when the tide is out allowing to swim even by high waves. The southern beaches are almost deserted and invite you to extensive wanderings.
The Hotel LAGOA e MAR (we speak English, German, Spanish and Portuguese) is situated in a tropical garden on the banks of a natural lake and consists of twelve spacious circular bungalows. The complex has a swimming pool with a separate pool for small children, sun terrace (with bedchairs and sunshades), bar with reading-room, playground and a restaurant. We have internet access and fax.
Each bungalow (suite) contains a bedroom with double bed (king size), fan and TV, a living room with two couchbeds, radio and refrigerator, a bathroom with WC and shower and a veranda complete with a hammock, a table and seats, offering enough room for up to three adults.
