This is a great hotel,modern,good wi fi,good breakfast.Pool is small but adequate.It is quite far from the Historical centre and the area is heavily policed for tourists.There is an edge in the air at night that it is not that safe an area,so dont walk on your own at night and stick to well lit areas where other people are about.Restaurants near by.Hotel overlooks the beach,very windy.

After she showed us around the workshops (they hold painting, gardening, printing etc classes every week and people can use them for free) and showed us a great view of a small favela perched just above the sea, we headed back towards Pelourinho. Although we didn't see much art we did learn quite a bit ...
This is my last morning in Brazil and I am up at 6 AM. We were loaded on a bus to go to the airport after having our breakfast of watermelon, fried egg and biscuit. It took us about 30 min. to make it to the airport.
After we got there we all got in line but one of the attendants for the airlines told Claude and I that we were old enough and had one bag each to check so we were sent to a no waiting line to check in. It only took us about 5 ...
