“Comfortable and Close to Beach and Shops”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

Nice comfortable hotel facing the beach with basic rooms, lobby, and above average restaurant. Nothing exceptional but a great staff and easy access to the beach, city transportation, and only four blocks from the night market! Elevators are extremely slow and hotel has limited Internet access. Still, I like the 'homey' feel of this hotel and the helpful, friendly attitude of the staff. Adjacent school and aquatics center is noisy during the day and early evening. Close to supermarkets and pharmacies as well as a good array of restaurants.

Room Tip: Front of hotel facing the beach and 'boardwalk'---upper level.

I am not a person that likes to complain, but I have to say if Seara hotel was ever a 5 star hotel they must have lost some of the stars along the way. The check in staff didn't seem to know what they were doing, the line was long and the staff never acknowledge the line. We could hear a guest complaining and the employees talking back (saying the lady should know better, that she should of done the check out instead of going to the beach, so she shouldn't be in a rush now saying she would miss her flight), not professional at all. Not a first good impression. The room was nice and clean but the second night they ran out of hot water for the shower, when I called they said the issue was going to be fixed in the next 30 minutes but it took them 3 days to fix it... so i had to take cold showers. The elevators are old and takes a long time to come by. Other than that, the food was great, the breakfast buffett was excellent, and the drinks by the pool and lobby were fantastic. Great location to stay in the heart of Fortaleza and right next to the daily handcraft fair.

It is a very well placed hotel. Near of the famous handcraft market place, pharmacies, good restaurants, banks. The leisure facilities are very good and pleople are gentle. The breakfast is nice, in the same level to the most 4 stars in Brazil. My room was located on the side of the building but I had a view of the beach. It was quiet, the cable TV presented several good options. The wireless internet access presented fast and stable.
However, a couple problems I could notice: first of all, the hotel presents a serious problem with cleaness in the room, including bathroom. Also, I should ask of soap and toalet paper refill. The bathroom presented a water leak and for all 5 days I was there, it remained damaged.
Second, if you intend to ask for a la carte plate at restaurant, just forget it. The service is really bad. I was with 2 friends and one of them remains without his meal!The maitre simply "forgot" him!

My room was good, even being next to the elevator was very quiet. The TV was new, but the antenna does not work. The same happened in another room with my friend who complained about the size of the bathroom. My bathroom had a good size. In front of the craft fair and beach Meirelles not recommended because it polluted. If tourism is to choose a hotel in 'Praia do Futuro "or" Praia de Iracema. "

Room Tip: in front of beach and artezanato fair

We had a couple problems - such as 2 separate beds or missing towels on the room - but once we contacted the front desk, less than 5 minutes later the issues were solved.

The hotel offers an incredible breakfast.

The leisure installations are great - highlights on the panoramic jacuzzi and the sauna with a great view

Go - you will like it. We had a good experience. Quiet and restful. Nice location. True the elevator is slow but this was no real problem. Staff were friendly and helpful, perhaps slower then their US counterparts - but what do you expect in a tropical climate? True, their English is not great, but you've got to learn some Portuguese to navigate in Fortaleza anyhow. This is one of the better hotels we have stayed at in Brazil, a sold 3 or 4 star place. Breakfast was super. [Beware of any claims about the "partial ocean view" rooms which have no actual ocean view at all, but when we complained this wasn't what we had paid for, then got a great actual ocean view room at no addl charge.] We'd go again.

Stayed here for one night and would never go back. Thank God it was the company that paid and not me – I would have refused to pay.
Some things the hotel cannot be held responsible for – the fact that during the night many guests were extremely ill-behaved, shouting and running, having loud arguments, slamming doors, calling to each other from balconies, banging furniture around, literally the whole night.
Other things are definitely the hotel’s responsibility: air-conditioner that rattled, fridge that sounded like an Airbus when it came on during the night, curtains that didn’t reach to the floor and so let light in in the early morning, door to varanda that rattled slightly in the wind from the sea, paper-thin walls and floors that let you hear conversations in other rooms and made sure you knew exactly when a guest in any adjoining room was using the bathroom, slightly dank and dark bathroom, and a pretty uncomfortable mattress. Oh, and the remote control for the TV didn’t work.
Add slow internet connection, a very average breakfast with queues, and the queues for the inadequate lifts, and you’ve got what for me was one of the worst nights/mornings I’ve ever had in a hotel.
Two years ago I stayed at the Gran Marquise and didn’t like it much – but anything’s better than this place.
