Located just steps from the beach, the Hotel Beira Mar is a modern, family friendly hotel that features ocean views and an outdoor pool. The hotel's namesake neighborhood is filled with shopping, beachside bars, and is about an 8-minute drive from the city center.
In Fortaleza, it's all about the beach, and Hotel Beira Mar puts you directly on one of the city's most popular spots. Plan a whole day or quick stroll at Meireles Beach, just outside the hotel door. Walk 10 minutes to Mucuripe Beach to watch Brazilian fisherman use jangadas-traditional homemade wooden sailing boats that have become a symbol of the city. For the best bars, nightclubs, and music venues, head to the Praia de Iracema neighborhood 3 km (2 mi) away.
While there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, the hotel's own Restaurante Jangadeiro is a convenient and satisfying option. This elegant, yet relaxed restaurant serves a mix of local and international cuisine for breakfast (complimentary), lunch, and dinner. For late nights or early mornings, the restaurant offers 24-hour room service. A full bar is open throughout the day, so grab your cocktail and head to the pool. Surrounded by polished stone walls and a luxurious waterfall, the outdoor pool is a great place to catch some sun away from the beach. If you want to keep up with your workout routine, the 24-hour health club has cardio and weight machines. Afterwards you can treat yourself to a massage, or steam room. If you need to make a fax or copy during your stay, the 24-hour business center has got you covered. Audio-visual equipment, complimentary wireless Internet access, and free parking are also provided.
Recently-renovated rooms at the Hotel Beira Mar are bright, sunny, and decorated with solid bold colors. Watch free movie channels on the LCD TV and stay connected with complimentary wireless Internet access. Many of these air-conditioned rooms offer ocean views, and all rooms include mini-bars, hairdryers, complimentary toiletries, desks, climate control, and safes. Cribs and rollaway beds are available for a fee. Housekeeping is provided daily.
