My friend and I stayed here for a long weekend. We enjoyed our stay here. The staff was sweet - from the people in the lobby to the cleaning staff. The included breakfast was really great, including fruit, bead, cake and warm dishes like scrambled eggs. We also had dinner here one night, we unfortunately didn’t like it, but luckily there are plenty of great restaurants very close by.
The beach was way closer than we first thought, you can see it when you stand outside the hotel. The WiFi worked great in the common areas, but wasn’t very stable in the hotel room.
If you’re a light sleeper this might not be the hotel for you, as its not soundproof. There’s a gab under the door so all noise from the street goes right into the room.
The pool was great and was mostly used in the late afternoon/evening. The whole hotel was beautiful and had a cozy feeling to it - music playing on the speakers from early morning to late evening, stopping around 10pm. I would pick this hotel for my next visit to Fortaleza also.

The hotel is not huge. The public areas are well kept and very clean. The pool is awesome. Breakfast is served in the pool area every morning, and it was a very good breakfast with lots of selection. My room was very basic, but comfortable enough. The A/C worked well, the bed was comfortable, and the shower was excellent.

Great boutique hotel two blocks away from the beach. Much more personable than the big tower hotels nearby. Cause the pool and good breakfast. They offer massages as well. The only thing that could use improvement is the restaurant for dinner. The service wasn’t great, and they had no salads in stock at all.

Excellent hotel walking distance from beach. Very intimate and friendly. Staff couldn’t do enough for us.Too many individuals to mention here but they all worked hard and did an excellent job. Superb breakfast in a lovely setting on the terrace by the pool.
Felt like a family run establishment. If at some point we return to Fortaleza will look no further and stay here again.

I stay with my family a few nights in Villa Mayor. The welcome was great,the staff are very helpful. The location of the hotel is very good. It's near the beach and other exit options. We recommended to book this hotel for your beautiful stay. The staff speaks English very well and also Portugese.

The place was very clean and the room was comfortable. The A/C worked great even in the afternoon heat. You may see different pictures of the exterior of this hotel which make it look like two different places but they are the same. Different parts of the hotel have a different fascade.

I needed to check out late and the hotel was very accommodating. Although the official check out time is noon, they don't charge extra for the first two hours. After that, it is R$10 per hour.

The clientele is almost all Brazilian and the staff has very limited english so bring your phrase book if you don't speak Portuguese or are reasonably fluent in Spanish.

The one thing I found a little weird was the shower door. The opening is only about 16" wide so if you are a little "oversized" it could be a problem. I'm not sure if all the rooms are like this or not so if it could be a problem for you, ask to see the room first.

Another downside is there are no elevators so if you have any disabilities or will be carrying your own luggage, you need to take note or specify that you need a ground floor room. I needed the exercise anyway so . . .

Nice small hotel in the center of Fortaleza. Comfort is reduced because of the sounds of drills and hammering in the courtyard. According to the reception the works will continue untill June at least. Beware!

Stayed here for a couple of nights during the World Cup. Location is two blocks back from the long stretch of beach where you want to be in Fortaleza. The hotel is built enough in off the street to block out all outside noise from the busy area. A great refreshing pool in the middle, with a bar/restaurant attached, very necessary to escape the heat! Staff were very professional and courteous, although all communication outside Portuguese had to be done via reception's iPad with Google Translate, which made for a bit of fun. Rooms ok -- great showers but average beds.

My son and I were in Fortaleza for the World's Cup and we were lucky to find this hotel.

All you have to do is go in. . .This is a classy, clean and conveniently located property. Their included breakfast is amazing with something for everyone and the staff could not be nicer. The rooms are nicely furnished, the rooms are of a fair size. The water pressure was better than mine back home. . .To go to the beach and restaurants, all you have to do is walk two short blocks and then, for us was like Deja-Vu, the area reminded me of South Beach in Miami, Florida with all the restaurants and bars and the beach across the road. This hotel is a jewel in the crown of Fortaleza and it is good for singles, couples and families, trust me, you'll thank me later!

My wife and I have stayed here twice, the breakfast is good with fresh juices, and standard Brazilian breakfast ( nice), the rooms are cleans and nice over looking the pool, the staff are mostly friendly to foreigners so that's a good thing, the WIFI on the other hand is terrible not connection anywhere on the premises and when it does it drops straight away, and the people in the pool is very noisy up until 10 pm then it's quite, I don't recommend eating there at all it's very bad and expensive, concierge is awesome and very helpful.

OVERALL : Good rooms, nice pool, awesome concierge, friendly staff, but don't eat there or plan to use the WIFI a lot.
