Far away from being a 5 star hotel, as they advertise it. The cleaning is not great. In most of the days, we couldn’t even determine whether the housekeepers have been there or not, there was even a bottle stopper in the floor of our apartment when we first arrived. Apartments have poor decoration and poor attention to details. They offer the unhealthiest breakfast I have seen in a while, there was zero greens and vegetables, and the coffee from the machine is of bad quality. Location is okay.
I went for a one week "carer's respite" from June 7th to 14th & never saw a drop of rain. This is a most impressive exceptionally well run hotel. I booked a superior double for single occupation which was comfortable & had all the amenities one would expect. The hotel is separated from the beach only by a road, a walkway& a bicycle lane. The lobby is a marble marvel with live carp (?) swimming in a shallow waterway. The lobby bar is excellent (&reasonably priced - happy hour wednesday half price.) The barman knows his stuff and "builds" a mean Margarita, pina colada ,mojito etc at about £5 a throw. The reception staff are exemplary with 2 charming young ladies & up to three men. There are two principal restaurants Mucuripe- internation cuisine & an aseatic restaurant. The staff in the restaurants were very good & the Maitre d'Hotel in Mucuripe particularly helpful. The food in both restaurants was high quality. There is also room service, you can eat in the lobby bar or on the rooftop where the swimming pool is a bit small. The breakfast array is mouth watering & you can also order any special you may want. I have only one modest reservation: to do some shopping (go to the mercado central 500+ small shops & with a bit of negotiation over local goods quite a snip) you need a taxi which costs about £5 each way. I loved my stay & would like to thank all the staff who were so kind & helpful.…
Absolutely marvelous hotel in Fortaleza, Av. Beira Mar. The rooms are very comfortable, spacious, great matratze, super king size bed. Fantastic shower. The breakfast can't be better with a beautiful sea view. The staff are all helpful and friendly. Ana Paula received all costumers with a beautiful welcome. All staff are friendly. At reception great staff too, special Gomes, a very charismatic guy, always read to help. It's a great place or maybe best to stay at Fortaleza.
Hotel staff is top notch. From security, luggage handlers, waiting staff, front desk, cleaning staff, etc, top notch service. If you like a firm bed which was california king as an option, they have it here. That alone was a super plus since my fiancee had a bad back . I emailed them a pdf to print my covid results and by the time I got down to the front desk, literally 2min later, it was already printed. 5 star hotel indeed. Gym is on the last floor and one of the best gyms in my Brazilian experience. Pool and Bar are the best combination. Ready towels with beach bag. Staff knew our names bc we stayed there for 5 days on and off. COVID safety measures were in place which was important and even set up a COVID lab to visit our ROOM so we can get a test and results the next day (had to pay $R300 for the visit). We didnt find one complaint about this hotel. ABOVE and BEYONE service.…
My stay was in Nov-2019, before the pandemic. This seafront hotel is probably the best accommodation in Fortaleza if you are not looking for a resort. Keep in mind that the best beaches are not in town, but a few miles East or West. Good accommodation, well located in a safe area and plenty of bars, restaurants and nightclubs within walking distance. Staff do the job.
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff were all amazing, all of them were happy to go the extra mile for you whatever the request, in perfect English no less. The facilities were great, although the pool area could get a little crowded on busier days. The rooms were very spacious, the air conditioning was extremely good, although the decor was a little dated. Room service food wasn't great but when is it ever? A great location, right across the road from what felt like one of the safer areas on the beachfront.
Good hotel, and very good foods in the restaurants. The rooms are large, and have good water pressure eaven in the top floor. The room had little smell of mold, but this went away when we put aircondition to dehydration. I will stay here again
A good hotel, food customer service, nice location near to prai futura beach, with good restaurants around, the breakfast is delicious and the room clean and with good A/C. Is a place for change money next to the hotel.
We had a very good experience staying at the Gran Marquise. Big and comfortable room with a great shower. Friendly staff, good bar, and restaurant and very good breakfast. We will stay again next time we are in Fortaleza.
Excellent hotel, large and comfortable room with a very good shower, friendly staff and very good location. Breakfast was very good, but could be excellent if they knew how to cook eggs properly. Will stay again next time we are in Fortaleza!
