Ideal For Carnaval
If you are on the party-at-night/recover-at-day circuit for Carnaval, this hotel is ideal. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the location is perfect. And the pool is EXACTLY where you want to be between blocos. The breakfasts are delicious. Most impressive is the lengths they go to keep guests secure from the madness outside. Of course, being close to the blocos meant that the loud music gets into the rooms, so if that bothers you, then maybe find elsewhere, but we were fine with it. My only complaint is the WiFi was pretty spotty, and it's super hard top get to any floor but your own, which was a pain since part of my group was on another floor. Overall, though, great. I'll come back next time I do Carnaval in Brazil!
The only choice for Carnaval
This is the only place to stay when you want to experience Bahian Carnaval. The joy of carnaval lies in the chaos and the unexpected moments of surprise. But to enjoy the chaos, you need an oasis retreat; a place to decompress; a place where familiar order reigns and rejuvenates you for the next day's adventure. After several years at carnaval I can attest that the Wish is the only such place in Salvador. Rooms: The mini suite had a balcony framed by an enormous, well landscaped succulent garden which made a ideal place to wind down after the parties. Amenities: The pool terrace is a great place to ease into the chaotic evening. Attentive and friendly servers, paired with the hip poolside DJ, make it the perfect place to enjoy caipirinhas. It incidentally overlooks one of the main circuits, which if you choose you can enjoy without leaving the safe cocoon of Wish. Food: For hungover mornings, an extensive 2-person gourmet breakfast is delivered to your room for 60 reais. For only 10 reais more, the lunch buffet has unlimited local delicacies and deserts, and the menu rotates each day. Service: I wanted last minute tickets to a highly demanded bloco, which for most people would have have meant a trek to a mall or sketchy street market. The hotel produced the ticket in 40 mins, and at a great price. It's hard to overstate the benefit of hours of time and stress saved to get the right tickets. Carnaval 2020 was amazing, and we owe a huge thanks to Wish for making it the best so far.
Great pool service
Mauro foi bem rápido e amigável! The caiprainhas were delicious and the staff friendly attentive and remembered where you were. Ask for Mauro when you're by the pool. The view of carnaval was also amazing.
Can’t Wait to Leave
Maybe there just aren’t enough hotels in Salvador so there’s not enough competition, but Wish Hotel is an absolute disaster from the moment we arrived. Service at reception was abysmally slow (it took 30 minutes from arrival to checkin and get to our room), spa was locked up during open hours and front desk had no idea who to call, and rooms were dated and worn down. Would advise against staying here.
Perfect Getaway for Couple
Our stay was simply fabulous and very enjoyable. Hotel was close to friends, beaches, great places to eat, etc...The company should take the entire staff out to dinner and give bonuses for the excellent service they delivered.
