In May 2008 we went to Fortaleza for the first time. The hotel has clean rooms, daily cleaning. On top of the roof is het pool, it is kind of small, but it is perfect for a refreshing dive. If you want to go somewhat further away, then you can take the bus for 1.60 real or take the taxi, that is waiting in front of the hotel. During our vacation 2 out of the 3 elevators were broken. After 2 weeks they were still not fixed. So the waiting times to get to your room were somewhat longer too. But we had a great vacation at a beautiful hotel with a perfect location. The centre is just around the corner with every evening the cosy evening market. Breakfast and dinner are good, although I don't recommend to book all-in, because else you'll have the same meal every evening. There are plenty of excursions you can book. I really recommend the buggy tour in Cumbuco.
