We were there for two nights. Overall a good experience with a good location near (not on) the beach. Some of the staff spoke English (big bonus for us), and the rooms were fine although nothing spectacular. For the price, a pretty good deal.

Unlike other hotels, they didn't include breakfast in their price, but they did have free coffee in the lobby.

Would definitely consider staying here again but may shop around some.

American citizen living in Brazil for the past 17 years.

My wife and I have been using our points to stay at Ibis hotels while doing some traveling around Brazil, and for the price you can't beat the overall experience.

The staff are super friendly and very attentive. Need to heat up some food after dining out? They'll take care of you and even provide plates and silverware.

The rooms in Fortaleza are big with plenty of space to stretch out on their new beds, which actually are very comfortable. The bathroom has everything you'll need and the shower had fantastic pressure. Loved the shower.

The rooms also have a massive air conditioner which you'll be worshiping after spending an afternoon in the blazing Sun of Fortaleza. This is one of the hottest cities I've been in around Brazil. Very hot and the locals say it's like that year round. Dress light and enjoy some ice cold coconut water along the boardwalk by the ocean.

There was a small table and chair as well as a small tv, but I really wasn't there to watch tv so that wasn't an issue. Please remember that ALL the outlets (light sockets) in the Northeast of Brazil are 220v. Make sure all your electronics are bi-volt or you'll be buying new ones. The front desk also has adapters in case your stuff doesn't fit the sockets.

The rooms in Fortaleza were much better and more spacious than those in Goiania. I was very impressed with the Fortaleza Ibis on this front.

Breakfast was standard fair for Ibis and Brazil, and for the price it's pretty good. You'll find eggs, some sausage or meat dish, juices, loads of breads and cereals as well as fruits. Very typical Brazilian breakfast spread.

There isn't much for a view since there are mammoth apartments and hotels everywhere, but the location is actually quite good considering it's a block away from the beach. The neighborhood is relatively new so there isn't a lot of movement up towards the beach so I'd probably be careful walking around that area at night.

The hotel has a cab service right out front and the drivers were all very friendly and didn't try anything underhanded once they knew I spoke the language. As with going to any country, knowing the native language is a must. It just shows them respect and that you care enough about their culture.

There are numerous restaurants within walking distance and the almighty Coco Bambu is about a R$12 cab ride away. If you are interested in the ultimate seafood dining experience, please check my review on Coco Bambu Frutos do Mar, Fortaleza. Insanely good!

If I had to make one complaint about the hotel it would be that the walls are somewhat thin. You can hear people in the hallway and in the adjacent rooms, but it's really not that bad. It didn't take anything away from my experience.

Overall I'm pretty impressed with the Ibis experience and highly recommend staying here if you can't afford the more extravagant 4 and 5 star hotels. Use your points and it's even more impressive!

Located between the historical center and the tourist center, at 50m from the Iracema beach, this cheap hotel is a good spot for you spent a great low-cost holidays. My room was located on the 3rd floor and also the most remot! The room is simple, with a flat screen, Air Conditioning, mini-fridge, mini closet, a good view to the beach between the front line building and a mini bathroom! The space is well used but need a little of maintenance and care from cleaning service! At the door lock a bolt is missing and everyday the room cleaner see that, so could advise the maintenance to fix that but not. My blanket were already teared during my stay. The hotel, at right side of exit had a small pool but the water is a bit dirty. The best of the hotel was the breakfast, With many variety and everyday they try to change the products!
