The Mareiro Hotel has everything you could want from a hotel in Fortaleza: it's steps from the beach with a uniquely designed pool and rooftop lounge that overlook the ocean and is centrally located among the city's best restaurants bars and clubs. The Mareiro is situated on the bustling Avenida Beira Mara beachfront promenade full of bars cafes and an open air market. The popular Iracema Beach is directly across the street. For nighttime entertainment take a 20-minute walk to the Praia de Iracema neighborhood where the city's best dance clubs and music venues are open nightly. While some hotels this close to the beach make their pools a mere afterthought at the Mareiro the pool takes center stage. Made up of 3 connected pools all of which are equipped pool sun loungers/chaise longues there are lines for lap swimming wading areas and a swim-under bridge. The swim-up spa tub is a great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing (as is the poolside bar). If you want to keep up with your workout routine the covered poolside fitness center is complete with cardio and weight machines. A steam room is also located nearby. If you're traveling on business you'll appreciate access to fax and copy machines at the 24-hour business center. The Mareiro also has 8 meeting rooms (352 square feet) with audio-visual equipment complimentary wireless Internet access and a 650-person capacity banquet hall; onsite parking is available for a surcharge.

Xique-Xique and Terraco Iracema feature the best of northeast Brazilian cuisine including fresh local seafood dishes. A complimentary continental breakfast is also served daily and 24-hour room service is available. Complimentary newspapers and a television are available in lobby. After a day lounging at the beach or exploring the city return to a spacious air-conditioned room uniquely decorated with large natural wood bed boards and sleek modern furniture. Watch cable or free movie channels on the 20-inch LCD TV and stay connected with complimentary wireless Internet access. All rooms include minibars and jetted tubs as well as balconies and windows that open to views of the city pool and/or sea.
The swimming pool and the bar inside the pool were excellent. There was also a gym by the pool and the lobby was nice and cosy. Perfect for a big group like our. The breakfast was great with all the typical brazilian delicacies.
The hotel is right in front of a beach, but that beach is really dirty, stinks, and you can't swim there. There are really nice beaches nearby but you have to catch a cab or a bus.

Staff helpful, rooms cleaned every day to great standard, choice at breakfast good. Would recommend. Hotel in great position on Biera Mar, but unfortunatley booking map shows this hotel miles away, so people may not book if going by map location on website.
Unfortunately the 5th floor of the hotel is being refurbished, but nothing was mentioned when booking, also a new hotel is being built across the road, so quite noisy during thy from about 07.00 am.
The breakfast and the pool.
The sea view and free wireless internet, good breakfast and spacious room
Very few of the staff we could communicate with. And most importantly they removed from our credit card for 7 days instead of the 6 days we had booked for and stayed and at the last minute before we had to leave for the airport they still did not have a proper bill. I sent them an email but still no response I still do not have a bill to verify my stay and present to my company. Can you help?
The staff were not fluent in English and this was a major difficulty. The hotel did the charges to my credit card while I was there without my knowledge on Oct 1, 2008. This created problems while trying to check out before leaving. They basically did not abide by the terms of the contract with Booking.com
