The Mareiro Hotel has everything you could want from a hotel in Fortaleza: it's steps from the beach with a uniquely designed pool and rooftop lounge that overlook the ocean, and is centrally located among the city's best restaurants, bars, and clubs.
The Mareiro is situated on the bustling Avenida Beira Mar—a beachfront promenade full of bars, cafes, and an open air market. The popular Iracema Beach is directly across the street. For nighttime entertainment, take a 20-minute walk to the Praia de Iracema neighborhood, where the city's best dance clubs and music venues are open nightly.
While some hotels this close to the beach make their pools a mere afterthought, at the Mareiro, the pool takes center stage. Made up of 3 connected pools, all of which are equipped pool sun loungers/chaise longues, there are lines for lap swimming, wading areas, and a swim-under bridge. The swim-up spa tub is a great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing (as is the poolside bar). If you want to keep up with your workout routine, the covered, poolside fitness center is complete with cardio and weight machines. A steam room is also located nearby. If you're traveling on business, you'll appreciate access to fax and copy machines at the 24-hour business center. The Mareiro also has 8 meeting rooms (352 square feet), with audio-visual equipment, complimentary wireless Internet access, and a 650-person capacity banquet hall; onsite parking is available for a surcharge. If you're looking for a convenient and authentic meal, the Mareiro has a restaurant and a café that won't disappoint. Xique-Xique and Terraco Iracema feature the best of northeast Brazilian cuisine, including fresh local seafood dishes. A complimentary continental breakfast is also served daily and 24-hour room service is available. Complimentary newspapers and a television are available in lobby.
After a day lounging at the beach or exploring the city, return to a spacious, air-conditioned room uniquely decorated with large, natural wood bed boards and sleek modern furniture. Watch cable or free movie channels on the 20-inch LCD TV and stay connected with complimentary wireless Internet access. All rooms include minibars and jetted tubs, as well as balconies and windows that open to views of the city, pool, and/or sea.
