Profile: Rio Vermelho

Profile: Rio Vermelho

While in Rio Vermelho, in Salvador's southern zone, visit Santana Square, which features Our Lady of Santana Church and beckons you to mingle amongst the local fishermen. Indulge in such local fare as cold beer and “acarajés” and inhale the bracing sea air while enjoying the expansive views.

Rio Vermelho is popular with locals and tourists alike for the traditional Festa da Yemenjá that takes place every year on February 2. Early morning, a charming procession begins with boats carrying presents, like perfumes and soaps, which are then presented to the Candomblé’s goddess to ensure good fishing all year round.

    riendl and good location

    The hotel reception was very friendly and helpful. The location is great as lots of bars and restaurants in the neighborhood. But it’s a Mercure, don’t expect the Four Seasons.

    Beautiful ocean view and great service

    Service was very good. They upgraded my room free of charge and I had a beautiful view of the ocean and nearby beach. The pool area is amazing also overlooking the ocean. Overall a very good experience

    Great hotel in Salvador!

    Really lovely hotel. Beautiful room overlooking the sea! Rooms are large and comfortable, with a TV, safe, hairdryer, fridge, and plenty of plug points! The shower is great! Lovely infinity pool outside and a good gym too. Staff are very helpful and professional - Tiago on reception particularly stood out with his friendly chatter and suggestions for our stay. Breakfast is of a high quality with plenty of options - we liked the omelette and juice stations!

    We enjoyed our stay

    Friendly staff and good customer service. The location was next to some great restaurants and within walking distance to the beach. The room was smaller in comparison to other Brazilian hotels I’ve stayed in. The pool has a great view of the ocean.

  • 8.0.Very good

    I like that the fitness center had a decent selection of equipment and it was up to date. I also like the breakfast selections, however, the eggs that they put out could have been cooked more. They were so watery and didn't taste good. The hallways also smelled like a sewer, but the smell didn't penetrate the room. Overall the hotel was good and I will use this hotel the next time I stay in Salvador.
