This is an upscale, air-conditioned, recently remodeled, impeccably clean one-bedroom apartment with a balcony and views of the sea and swimming pool. The pool is one of the biggest of any co-op in the vicinity & is a great place to hang out, get a little sun while chatting with the neighbors.
The building is excellently located. In addition to being seconds from the beach it also sits next to Salvador's best delicatessen and it is located just around the corner from Shopping Barra where you can find everything from excellent clothing stores to movie theaters to restaurants to berimbaus. The co-op is also a bit further back from the street so you can enjoy a measure of calm & tranquility away from the constant noise of traffic. There are bus stops & taxi stalls right as you exit the gate to the complex. You can get anywhere easily.
There are 24 hour-a-day doormen, a gym, a sauna, and a game room. Best of all you're just one short block away from the beach, Carnival floats and some very hot hangouts like Bohemia, Caranguejo de Sergipe, and Barra Vento.

From our initial enquiry/ booking and right through until check out, our entire experience with Alain was perfect. He is always very fast to respond to enquiries.
The apartment is in an ideal location: a very short walk to the beach and waterfront restaurant area; right beside Barra Shopping (a wide range of stores - from Zara to Lojas Americana/ cinemas and lots of food outlets - try the pastel at Beachstop!); Presini (a boutique supermarket) by the front gate; and a taxi rank right outside the building.
Both the apartment and Alain are wonderful. I stayed for two weeks and happily would have stayed longer. The location is perfection, the building is extremely well kept and very safe. Recommend highly.
Good , clean and safe location, very helpfull guards.
Alain I never met in person, but anything was arranged.
Alain's Barra apartment is a great place, with great location in Salvador's prime beach area. He is very quick to help if needed regarding questions about the apartment or give advice about Salvador during your stay.
Steps from sand,water,shopping,taxi's and buses not to mention great restaurants.
The apartment is well appointed, clean and (email hidden)e balcony offers views of beach and city,and it sure is nice to have a private pool and gym in the complex.
The security guards are very helpful and add sense of well being for your stay.
Alain is a great guy and has a portfolio of different apartments to choose from.I recommend him with 5 stars.
A better location in Salvador could not be found. Close to Pelourinho, Rio Vermelho and great beaches only blocks away. The apartment offers a great view of the beach not to mention the pool. And yet, this is not a hotel, so you get a glimpse of life in Salvador. The doormen were wonderful and helpful. Buses and taxis are right out the door. Oh, and you´ve got a big mall around the corner and supermarket next door. Easy, convenient and chill.
Alain is very responsive and is there for anything you may need. His driver Lidio offers a super punctual, inexpensive ride to the airport. They´re both fantastic people.
I wish my wife and I were still there!
Apartment and Alain were both good...all other reviews are accurate and I would recommend the apartment for both short and long term stays. I was there for 1 month.
