Gran Marquise is probably the best hotel in Fortaleza. Located at Beira Mar Avenue, facing the beach of Mucuripe and the Atlantic Ocean, it is indeed one of the most beautiful hotels in Ceará State, with oriental looks and nice décor. Rooms are comfortable and bathrooms are modern and functional. A complimentary coffee table at the main lobby - available... More

Gran Marquise announces it's a 5-star-hotel on its webpage. But it lacks those qualities present in 5-star-hotels. Swimming pool area is small. Bed mattress and pillows are hard and not comfy (I missed a Hilton bed so much). Loud air conditioning in room. My room was also a smelly. Other than that, I must say that the spa area is... More

Breakfast complete, with local ingredients and so on... Negative point: food in the room by night,slow motion. Besides this, the hotel is great.

Excellent hotel. Rooms are wide and clean. Breakfast is also excellent, assorted breads, very well selected fruits, and so on. Location is also very convenient. There are many restaurants in the are and conviniences. The beach in front of the hotel is not the best of Fortaleza, but is enough for a walk at sunset. Plan to return!

I stayed here for business in September 2013. The hotel itself is in a beautiful location right on the beach (see panorama taken from the roof). The pool on the roof was very nice (also pictured), and the rooms had strong air conditioning and comfortable beds that made going to sleep at night a pleasure. The restaurants in the hotel... More

Let's start by saying that the standard of city hotels in the brazilian north-east is fairly low so the expectations on the Gran Marquise weren't high. In any case this is meant to be the best hotel in Fortaleza but is surprisingly disappointing. Location is good. Period On the rest, the rooms are pretty outdated, service is awful, food not... More

Really very well located in front of the beach, good rooms with everything you need. Confortable bed, air-contidioner working good and a strong shower. Breakfast is complete, with the local "tapioca" (a manioc flour pancake) and everything else a good hotel can offer. The only negative point is asking for food in the room after 23:00. They say it comes... More

The hotel is located in a good point on front beach. There are good restaurants near the hotel. The service was great since the check-in to the check out. The looby is a little bit old but the rooms are great. The cleanness is not so good for a 5 star hotel. The shower is good! The breakfest was magnific!... More

We have been travelling around Brazil recently and we spent a couple of night in Fortaleza too. All the hotel in town are definitely over rated. A luxury 5 star there won't be more than a 3/4 star in Europe, but Gran Marquise is definitly the best choice in town. The hotel is located in front of the main beach,... More
