This is a horrid hotel in the middle of nowhere. The beach is pleasant enough, though it is highly recommended that you do not go out walking at night ... it is very unsafe. The hotel looks like a giant Disney resort from the 70's, a throwback that has seen better days. It needs major remodeling and updating. The breakfast... More

The hotel is located at the Praia do Futuro beach. On the beach is a beach bar with umbrellas and sunbeds which belongs to the hotel. The beach is amazingly nice and police checks that nothing bad happens there. This hotel, which is around 25 minutes away from the airport is clean, the rooms are basic (not special, not really...

That was our second time there. Situated in Praia do Futuro, for me the best beach in Fortaleza, and around 15min from the city center. It's a big hotel with swimming pool and a bar/restaurant on beach sand. Nice attendants, cleaned bedrooms, comfortable beds. Breakfast is very good, specially the "tapioca com queijo coalho", this one is awesome. They also... More

The Vila Gale hotel in Praia Futuro was a decent place to stay. The hotel is located in a fairly isolated area in the city which can be a good or a bad thing depending on what you are looking for. The beach is quite nice, and there are plenty of chairs/tables for guests to use while enjoying the sun... More

You just have to lower your expectations of what makes a good hotel when in Brazil. This place is clean, the staff are friendly, they speak some English but the rooms are basic. It's right on the beach so that's great but it's pretty far from the airport (about 25mins). The WIFI is crap and isn't free in your room.... More

Hotel is very isolated and they discourage you from leaving on foot because surrounding area is 'dangerous'. It is several miles from downtown fortalezas bars and restaurants. Internet, even if you pay $20 a day for it, is appallingly slow...could not download email properly or skim web. My so called ocean view had a glimpse of sea across a large... More

After booking this hotel for a week, and then reading the reviews, I was more than a little nervous. However, the hotel was pretty good. No, it definitely is not a five star hotel. I would place it between three and four. As an American, my expectations were pretty high after seeing the five star rating. But, in fairness, those... More

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
