We stayed four nights in a studio, and were very happy with this hotel. The studio was ample with a fabulous view (at a price). The king size bed is comfortable, A/C good albeit a little bit noisy. The bathroom is OK, but the wash basin is a little bit too high, and the shower is rather inconvenient: it’s right... More

This hotel is one of the best in Fortaleza, well located, great rooms, great restaurant. People are kind and very helpful. The beach in front is not appropriate for bath but the view is fabulous. Close to restaurants and malls. Keep in mind that Fortaleza is one of the most violent cities in Brazil.

The hotel faces the ocean and looks very smart from the outside and lobby, the staff are friendly, well dressed and helpful and the place is generally well kept. It's in the safest part of the city so you can walk in the immediate area without fear during daylight. So first impressions are good. The rooms are a little dated... More

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
