Reviewed 16 August 2012

I had a confirmed reservation at this hotel, through hotels.com. The day before our trip the hotel sent an email (no phone call) saying that the reservation had been cancelled due to an incorrect credit card number. I checked - the number was right. I then tried to make another reservation and found that the hotel was fully booked. It therefore looks as if the hotel either had a better offer and dumped our reservation or made a mistake. Either way it is highly unprofessional.

The common area is amazing. There are many things to do: several pools, a river around the common area where you can row a kyak, several tennis courts, a mountain bike trail, football court, and several other sports.
Chindren stays all day at the sports area, they can eat at the restaurant, they do sports, you don´t see your kids till they are hungry and tired.
If they are older than certain age, they can leave the resort and go to the beach. Small kids only with parents.
The resort is perfect for children.

The room is ok, I expected more, but the common area compensates everything.

And it is just 700m walk to the Beach Park, walking on the beach

We loved the hotel. Wonderful

Room Tip: a room with a view to the common area is better

This resort looks like a little villa and is a mix of condo apartments with some hotel rooms. PROS: The commom grounds are absolutely beautiful. There are several pools, courts (basketball, tennis, volleyball), a nice beach and even a river. It serves a good breakfast and the staff is very attentive. CONS: Standard rooms are well kept but VERY basic, and could have better amenities. Another annoying feature is that you have to pay extra for just about everything: bikes, kayaks, gym, sauna, jaccuzi and others.

I made a reservation at this hotel for a whole week, but stayed there just a couple of hours and decided to move to a better place.
The infrastructure is impressive. Big pools, big outdoor area with tenis and soccer courts, kayak river etc. Beach is also very nice in front of hotel. But....
Restaurant is not good and the rooms are bad. If you are looking for a 2 star hotel, this maybe the place. Otherwise, choose another place to stay. Rooms are big but not clean and definetely not comfortable.
Staff is very friendly.

We spent one wonderful and memorable week at the Aquaville Resort. We arrived seven (7) hours before check-in time and yet the resort allowed us to check in after twenty-four (24) hours of travel. We had a comfortable two bedroom, three full bath, kitchen, eating area and livingroom. The apartment is very basic; but fullfilled our needs. Any missed comforts in the room is rewarded by the beautiful and well kept gardens. There are 30+ buildings and each is maintained extremely well. There are four (4) swimming pools, exercise room, hot tubs and three restuarants specializing in breakfast, snacks, lunch and diiner. We were most impressed with the service staff who never failed in providing excellent service.
The food was very good and portions were healthy. The beach is great. Would suggest taking the dune buggy ride. We took a five (5) hour tour with a driver names Walter. The cost was $120.00 US and worth every cent. One day touring Fortaleza is enough time to see key historical sites. Aquaville is within walking distance by beach to Beack Park.
The resort is 20 miles from the airport and the taxi fair is $25.00 US. There is a gentleman named Raimundo who offers city tour and beach tours. Does not speak English but seemed to know exactly what we wanted to do. We did two (2) tours with him.
There are two other great restuarants within walking distance from resort. There is a German restuarant on the main road across from the resort which was excellent for sausage and potatoe. They open at 11:30 AM. The other is at Hotel Oceani which is just the next hotel over. We did Italian buffet night and it was about $15.00 pererson.
If you want peace and solitude Monday through Friday this is a great place. Since 90% of the apartments are privately owned, the weekends are very busy with singles and families.
