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.
