Even if this hotel is a little shabby it still has it charm. You cant beat the location with the beautiful seaview and on the other side you have the jungle with all the lovely noisy birds, even monkeys ca be seen if you are up early. As said, some parts are shabby, the gym for instance must be from... More

This hotel is not on the beach but with easy access from all roads. 3 minutes from the airport . Breakfast could be better because of the high price charged for the night . The pool is outstanding and the rooms are okay, nothing spectacular and worth what is charged . Lots of mosquitoes .

I have stayed in a few different hotels in Porto Seguro. Best Western Shalimar Praia Hotel is definitely one of the best, with good chances of being the top choice. It has a very professional service, good structure and honest location (very close to city center, but slightly far from the main daylight beach attractions). Also, their breakfast is really...

The hotel room was ok, but had strong damp smell!

Very good base for exploring surroundings (within walking distance to restaurants and markets) and / or staying around swimming pool. Hotel is clean and staff is helpfull. It got a bit too busy during breakfast hours as the hotel was full. A good designated jogging/bike lane across the street.
