Excellent hotel! We are Brazilians. I stayed with my family coming from Natal and João Pessoa where we live. We were afraid because of the dubious video presented on the website and the neighbourhood in Fortaleza nearby the port of Mucuripe. However, our stay was very good. We loved the room and the service. The lobby is a special place... More

I have visited Fortaleza many times and generally stay in another well rated hotel - but wanted a break - so guided by reviews decided to try this hotel. I have to say that I will probably change to stay at this hotel rather than the other. the Room is well laid out, comfortable, the air conditioning is excellent (the... More

Some years ago I used to visit Fortaleza and surrounding Ceara beaches about 4 times a year. While I stayed at many hotels up and down the Beira Mar and beyond, I always found that the Grand Marquise was the best as well as the more expensive hotel of the lot. During a recent stay at the Grand Marquise I... More

The best in the hotel: 1- Location is great, the ocean facing rooms are worth the extra fee. 2- The hotel employees are extremely nice. I would like to specially recommend Helena, our housekeeper, that was great and we missed the day she was off and Andreza in the reception who proactively extended our stay and took care of everything...

I have stayed in Gran Marquise for work reasons and also during my last vacation. I simply love it. The staff is nice and very gentle, food is awesome and the hotel is located in the best spot of Mucuripe. Gran Marquise will certainly be my choice teh next time I get to Fortaleza. :)
