With all due respect, but only three things are positive which come to my mind about this place: good breakfast area and breakfast and good location. Everything else was more or less a pain as staff is unfriendly and not helpful/customer orientated. This place also needs a make over. There are better places when you are on a budget...

The staff here were very friendly but the hotel was poorly maintained and the rooms need a refurb. We even found keys to other rooms in our room which we handed into reception! The location is good though, opposite the beach, but this is not a hotel we will return to unless there is dramatic change!

This hotel is in dire need of a refurbishment. We visited in early January 2015 and on the first morning of our stay there was a tropical storm that lasted for about an hour. In that time, a torrent rainwater leaked through the roof of our hotel room, the corridor and other guests' rooms. After being given another room we found that this one was also leaking, The manager finally found us a room that didn't have water coming through the ceiling. Their excuse that Fortaleza doesn't usually experience this type of weather isn't good enough - come on, fix the roof, guys! The only person who didn't lose his composure when our bedroom was flooded was the manager so top marks to him. Having seen 3 different bedrooms I can safely report that all bedrooms need updating. The bathrooms are shabby - in one bathroom the shower door was missing. Our final bedroom had an air conditioning system that didn't work properly. That said the beds were comfortable, the rooms are large and there is a safe in each room. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis, and the food at breakfast had some North East Brazil influences such as tapioca pancakes and juices like cashew and mango. Fortunately for my English tastes there was a limited selection of cereals available as well as honey for my bread. The Reception staff are friendly but few speak English, so brush up on your Portuguese. Externally, the hotel's gardens are not as impressive the pictures look on their website. Again, everything looks a bit unloved and shabby. There is a small pool and area for sunbathing although with such a nice beach nearby you probably won't use it much. The main reason people book this hotel is because it is next to the only beach in the city that is unpolluted and safe to swim in. The other beaches on the Iracema side of Fortaleza are no longer safe as they suffer from pollution from such things as sewage overflow and the big ships sailing to the nearby port flushing their engines into the sea. In front of the hotel is the Crocobeach bar and beach centre which is free to enter and has apool for children and lots of restaurants which have beach side tables and seating. However, if you are looking for peace and quiet then this beach bar can be very noisy and there is a lot of hassle from beach trinket traders. At the weekend the beach becomes particularly busy when the whole city seems to descend on the place. We were told by the local police that the area around the hotel is not safe for tourists so for our evening meal we would get a taxi to the restaurants in the town centre or to Iracema.There are buses into town - there is a bus stop near the hotel and we did this one afternoon and it is relatively quick and very cheap. I wouldn't want to do this in the evening though. If you really want to be near this beach (Praia do Futuro) then I would suggest booking another hotel in the area, or stay at a hotel in Iracema and get a taxi to the beach if you want to swim in the ocean.

Outside of Fortaleza's city, this hotel is footsteps from the beach and the great crocobeach leisure, bar and beach place, on the Praia do futuro beach. Really like the experience and the staff. Good breakfast.

Not worth the price we paid even during the World Cup. Just adequately cleaned room, stained mirror, no hot water in wash basin and no hot water in shower after the morning (Fortaleza is hot but one still needs some hot water), breakfast so-so. Staff try to be friendly though language was a problem for us. Well located on Praia do Futuro with great beachside eateries, (though not much hope of getting your own groceries) with a bus to the centro and the fanfest there throughout the World Cup season. You could get a better deal for the same price at the centro
