Steps from the Iracema Marina and Formosa Beach, this hotel is in a prime area for relaxation and entertainment. The Iracema Beach is a bohemian paradise with many beachfront kiosks, a gorgeous historical statue, and the city's most popular bars and nightclubs, only 10-minutes from the hotel by foot. The left end of the beach features a large boardwalk known as the Bridge of the Englishmen, where the famous Pirata Bar can be found.
Also close to here is the Central Market—a three-story shopping center geared towards tourists. With more than 500 stalls selling things like hammocks, leather bags, nuts and spices, and clothes, this is the perfect place to purchase souvenirs and gifts.
Next to the market is the Fortaleza Cathedral. It is the third largest Catholic house of worship in Brazil, and can hold over 5,000 people. Designed by the French architect George Mounier, this Gothic-Roman style church took nearly 40 years to build, and is now one of the city's most notable points of interest.
The Dragão do Mar de Arte Cultural Center is an extensive complex with museums, cinemas, theaters, galleries, and even a planetarium. It is just a few blocks past the Central Market. Many of its older buildings were renovated and now serve as restaurants and artisans' workshops.
The Santa Clara Organic Café, the Music Box bar, and the Dragão do Mar restaurant are just a few of the dining venues placed throughout the grounds. Both the João Felipe subway station and the Estação Ferroviária bus stop are less than a block from the hotel. Other beaches and attractions can be easily reached by taxi or public transit.
Food & Beverage
The hotel's Coffee Shop is where guests can enjoy a complimentary buffet breakfast of various rolls and pastries, fresh fruits, deli meats and cheeses, granola, yogurt, tropical juices, hot coffee and more each morning during their stay. Lunch and dinner buffets are also served here.
La Marine is a French restaurant specializing in meat, chicken, and seafood dishes, while drinks and sandwiches can be purchased from Lanchonete Fast Food. The poolside bar carries a variety of sparkling wines, beers, cocktails and nonalcoholic beverages that pair nicely with a snack or light meal.
