I was there for almost 2 weeks and the room was ok, not more than that. They were refurnishing the hotel and was noisy, with dust all around, the food at the rest was also ok, nothing special. If you plan to stay to go to the beach try to get one closer to the good beaches, here the beach... More

Deceptive hotel. Towels are terribly old. There is no gym, only few broken “for home use” equipment. You can’t walk around because it is really dangerous – this problem is not about the hotel, but about Fortaleza. If you like to walk around and see things by yourself, Fortaleza is the wrong city. It is too dangerous (rank #1 in... More

The Hotel has excellent accommodations, as well the meals they prepare there. It is located 7 km away from the city center, in a very calm location. You just have to cross a street to enter the best beach Fortaleza has. In the beach, near the hotel, there are several bars and restaurants, where you can enjoy Brazilian music

I really wanted to like this hotel...but it just wasn't in the cards. The negatives really outweigh the possitives. Let me preface this by saying that I am fluent in Portuguese, so communication was not an issue. Here is a quick rundown: Cons: -Location. Very dangerous at night. Only travel by taxi and never walk around the area; you can... More

Vila Gale Fortaleza is a reasonably acceptable hotel. Level-wise, it resembles a bad European four-star hotel. I feel that maybe it was ok. for the price btu I am not sure that I would go back to it if I had a choice. There were some problems witht he staff and at some point I felt they find me a... More

We spent 07 days with our kids (02, 07 and 09 years old) at Vila Gale Fortaleza, on 2012/july. You just need to cross the street to reach the sand in Praia do Futuro, which is a very good and nice beach for the family. The hotel has a good infrastructure at the beach and their food there is quite... More

The hotel is big, but a big lack of cordiality at the reception desk. I would think twice before coming back.

We stayed there in 2008 and the service, room and facilities were very good value for money. This was the reason why we went back. However this time it was different. Reception didn't have our details (considering we booked a month in advance), and weren't forth coming. When we finally got to the room, the toilet seat was broken and... More

This was by far the most luxurious hotel I stayed in so far, with a spacious room, sports facilities, sauna and a large pool. The friendly people of the hotel put a lot of effort into entertaining their customers by organising special dinner nights with music, courses of aerobic dancing in the pool (well it looked like that), and other...
