Great sea view! Good value and breakfast was great! The hotel is very well located and you have many bars and restaurants within walking distance.If you stay here for New years eve the party of many hundreds of thousand happens right in front of the hotel, get a room facing the sea for an unbelievable experience.

I was on business trip and I got room 503. This is important to know because I don’t know how are the top rooms (they said they have a Nespresso machine and better view). Anyway the room is far away from being good. Furniture is wooden made and old. Wi-fi signal has some blind spots in the room and the worst part of it: the AC is central (which means you can’t change its direction) and the wind hits the bed all the way. The bed is not good also. They even changed my mattress because it looked really old and it was definitely not good for anyone’s back. The staff, though, is really nice and attentive. That is the high side of this hotel. Swimming pool is good but small when the hotel is crowded. The hotel corridors are also pretty tight what makes it hard to circulate while carrying big pieces of luggage. The hotel only has two small elevators and especially during rush hours (breakfast) you wait a long time for it. Breakfast is nice but not outstanding. Hotel is right in front of Iracema Beach which is a good place to be in Fortaleza. Good beach and good places to eat pretty close and good malls nearby (between 10 to 20 reais by cab). In a nutshell, it is not a comfy hotel. The room could be a lot better and for sure the hotel needs renovating. I’m posting 3 pictures and the one of the room is to show the AC and how the wind hits the bed straight away.

M. Bolichone, All comments are very important to us, even if your stay has not exceeded your expectations. So sorry for the discomfort mentioned during your stay. You can be sure that this kind of situation is not our standard. We have already passed on your observations to the operational management as an opportunity to improve intensification in training with the teams. Regards, Relationship Management

The hotel is simple and comfortable, I recommend to use their own desk service to help with transportation for the beach park or other attractions when in Fortaleza. Nice breakfast in the morning, and a small pool... You can cross the street and get to a big beach, with a wide sand lane... Usually there are lots of people jogging, biking, walking the entire day. Public Bikes Stop near (100m) for renting. Excelent for tanning and staying for the night.

good hotel, nice people, very good breakfast. and with the view of the sea. I was in a room with a view of the ocean. It was great. Good air conditioner, hair dryer. Two small elevators, though. Sometimes we got to wait for a long time.

The Magna Praia has an incredible staff and the breakfast buffet is impressive (and delicious). The rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. We were at the hotel as a transition between other places and it served it's purpose. The hotel is a bit quirky in an endearing way. The hallways are thin and the elevators are small. There's a barely-shoulder-width hallway between the elevators that you have to take to get to the stairs. The kids thought this was the coolest thing ever. The boardwalk on the beach across the street is a great place to walk, run, or work out. And the proximity to the ocean makes it convenient. The pool is really small and while the staff loves kids, the hotel is probably not the best place to vacation long term with kids. I highly recommend this hotel for business trips or for a day or two family trip if you intend to spend time elsewhere in Fortaleza during the day.
