The Gran Marquise (formerly the Caesar Park) is a not-quite-new 4-star hotel (it advertises itself as a 5-star hotel, but we agreed it deserves just 4 stars). The rooms are large enough, but relatively austere (we had a "lateral" room; the more expensive rooms facing the ocean could be larger). Bed was comfortable. Bathroom showing its age (e.g., older fixtures, shower curtain instead of glass shower door, which one wuld expect in a luxury hotel). Buffet breakfast in the Mucuripe Grill was quite generous (that restaurant is also open for lunch). Open for dinner are one "pan-Asian" restaurant, and the excellent, albeit somewhat pricey, Nostrodamus Retaurant (the fish and lamb we had were both excellent; we dined at 8:30 pm, relatively early for many in Brazil, and were the only ones there). There is a small rooftop pool (with bar serving drinks and some food), and gym (including wet and dry saunas, jacuzzi and some exercise equipment; massages cost extra). This is a pleasant area for walking outside (do not carry a lot of jewelry or cash, which is good advice for most places in Brazil), though I personally would not go swimming in the ocean there, due to pollution).
