The Colibri is the best idea to make the bridge from Europe to Brasil. Near to the airport you find the best beaches of Salvador, nice restaurants everything in 5 minutes walk from your bed.
It is a very good idea to crash here and find your way with the temperature, the speed and culture of Bahia and from there you make your next steps.
Your host speaks English, French and Portugese, he knows a lot about Salvador and he will help you out in every question you have.
I have been in Salvador at least 10 times and lived there for a long time. But never knew that so close to the airport I could find everything I needed.
Nous n'avons pas regretté de passer par la Colibri avant de prendre l'avion ! L'endroit est très agréable et Paul au petit soin avec ses hôtes.
Super soirée aussi ! Merci
Paulo sent me a message a few days before my arrival to make sure there will be someone to welcome me and provided me the necessary information to reach the house using the bus. The room is big enough, with a fan, a small table and two seats. The bathroom is tiny but with a large show ! There is also a seating area near the pool. The pool is a plus even if the beach and the sea are only meters away.
You can stock up at the Hiper Ideal or go for dinner to the Beach Stop... or a bit further if you are driving, which was not my case.
Overall a nice place to stay and to relax ...
Paulo is a friendly guest and after 3 weeks trying to speak portuguese, I really enjoyed having à conversation in my native french language on my way back home !
Will be back there if returning to Salvador...
Muy buen anfitrión Polo. Le avisamos que nuestro avion llegaba a la noche y nos esperó. La casa es simple, y la zona es tranquila. Nuestra habitación tenia vista al mar y escuchábamos solamente el ruido de las olas a la noche. Las sábanas estaban nuevas y limpias. También tiene una piscina propia que está muy bien mantenida, y dos perros muy amigables, juguetones y tranquilos. En la cocina se pueden preparar comidas sencillas: tiene 6 hornallas, heladera, y 2 piletas lava-platos en un mueble un poco viejo, pero todo funciona. Estuvimos sólo por 2 noches, pero nos gustó. Si se busca playa, éstas son excelentes!! (para actividad nocturna hay que buscar mas al centro de Salvador... pero no era nuestro caso).
The room is large and the place was truly calm for what I was looking for: to rest. Minimum furniture. The cleaning could be better. Bathroom lacks a bin for toillet paper waste although guests are requested not to throw it inside the toillet itself.
The street is known to be safe in the astonising beautiful coast and large Stela Mares neighbourhood: there is even a private force working the restaurant on the corner.
The hosts are no-stress people and Paul have some nice books to be read in the shelves. I was there just for one rainy day but I believe that
depending on your style and preferences while travelling, the Colibri may become a good place to stay in terms of cost-benefits.
