The hotel was nice but the rooms were a little dated. The hotel restaurant food was average at best. Breakfast included was the same everyday but ok. The fish smell from the fish market was a non issue. Not noticeable at least from the 9th floor.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Beach bar/restaurant beside the hotel and behind the fish market were great. You buy your seafood fresh and the bar prepares it for you all while you sit on the sand sipping a cold brewskie.
I was pleased with the room for the most part. Nice view from the pool area. Pool was pretty good. Service people were very nice and accommodating. One thing that didn't work was the internet. We had service guys come up a couple of times but
couldn't get it to work. We had to go to the lobby for wireless.The Breakfast was not free. We were told once we got there that when you book a hotel through [...], breakfast is not included. However they had an intro letter in the hotel room that said everything that's included. Breakfast was one of them.It was very noisy outside our window. We were on the 3rd floor on the north side. Outside the window is a fish market and there was always something going on late at night. Try to stay on the south side or get a room on a higher floor.The bed was really bad. We had a queen bed and the mattress was very old and not comfortable.The hotel was right across from a Shanty town.Fitness center was a joke.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
As I stated before, the breakfast was not included. Breakfast was 15 Rios per person. However if you order breakfast room service for one, it only costs 17 Rios and there is more than enough for two people.
After almost a month in Natal we spent one night in Fortaleza on the way back to the US. We had a delux room with ocean view - excellent. The downsides: snobby staff, my wife and daughter got sick from breakfast and still are sick 3 days later,
don't roam the beach here unless you like thugs trying to sell you "coke" - stay in the room and get right to the airport. If you want a nice place to visit in Brazil check out Ponta Negra beach in Natal and stay at the Blue Marlin Hotel - great staff, great clean food, great beach. Fortaleza sucks - I would only recommend this hotel if someone had to stay in Fortaleza for a short period of time.
