Lining the beach is the bustling Avenida Beira Mar, a beachfront promenade featuring bars with ocean views and open air markets. Fortaleza's best nighttime bars, comedy venues, and dance clubs cluster in and around the Praia de Iracema neighborhood, also a 20-minute walk away. In the mood for a delicious, filling breakfast? The breakfast buffet delivers with an impressive spread of local and international favorites. Lunch and dinner are also served at the restaurant, which features a terrace bar. Room service is available around the clock. Catch some great views of the city at the outdoor pool and lounge area while enjoying a cocktail from the poolside bar.
