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 the 80's, and the breakfast is not the best.

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 .

We were looking for a base in Porto Seguro for a couple of nights before heading to a Pousada at Praia do Espelho and this filled the bill.
The room was very nice, clean and quiet.
Meals are all buffet style and very adequate if not a gourmet experience.
The hotel is within walking distance of the centre with a good variety of restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the swimming pool.

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 good. If you're not brazilian and have plans of going to Porto Seguro for some days, I recommend you stay there. Given the natural cultural limitations, this is probably the most prepared hotel to have you. Oh, and get yourself a mosquito repellent - the whole city is filled with them.

I stayed here with my wife for an overnight stop off before heading to Trancoso the following day. We arrived late on a flight so got there around midnight. We were taken to a room at the front of the hotel so had the noise of the traffic outside and there was a really strong smell of urine in the corridor and the room itself.
To be fair, the breakfast was really good and the next morning, after having a look around the rest of the hotel, I'd say we must have been given one of the worst rooms because the area around the swimming pool looked much better than our room.
We would have asked to move if we had got there earlier in the day but because it was so late we were too tired to complain and the staff didnt speak english. Overall a bit disappointing bearing in mind it s a Best Western which normally provides a much better standard of room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel, perhaps overlooking the pool.

Dear Sr,
Thank you for sending us your feedback hosting!
We are very sorry about your dissatisfaction. Our employees are trained to do the best in order to satisfy all guest. Our 24 hours reception could have helped you. A simply telefone call would have made a all the difference in relation to your confort. We have different kind of accommodation. The apartments by the swimming pool are very confortable and silent. We hope we can have other opportunity to receive you and your wife and change your point of view in relation to our quality.
Have a nice week!
