Rating: 3 star
Address: Avenida Historiador Raimundo Girão, 1002 – Praia de Iracema, Fortaleza
Fortaleza is known for its fantastic urban beaches that surround popular clubs and restaurants, and the Magna Praia Hotel puts you in the middle of it all. Just steps from the beach, the hotel features rooms with windows that open to ocean views and a beachside bar and lounge.
Situated in Fortaleza’s popular Beira Mar neighborhood, the Magna Praia is directly on Iracema Beach, one of the city’s most popular retreats. Many of the bars and clubs of the densely developed Praia de Iracema neighborhood are just a 10-minte walk away.
Guests are welcomed into the hotel by a spacious, sunny lobby complete with modern furniture, large flat-screen TVs, sunroofs, and wall-to-wall windows. Conveniently located just off the lobby, the Magna Praia restaurant offers an impressive complimentary breakfast buffet, with hot and cold dishes, and plenty of fresh fruit. Later in the day the restaurant serves classic Brazilian fare for lunch and dinner. Grab a drink at the outdoor bar and enjoy it on the hotel’s rustic patio that overlooks the ocean. Connected to the patio is the outdoor pool and lounge area, which features poolside recliners and a shaded lounge area. Business travelers will appreciate the onsite business center with fax and copy machines. A large convention hall can seat up to 320 people, or can be divided into 3 smaller rooms for smaller events and meetings. Complimentary wireless Internet access is also provided. If you’re driving, note the hotel does not have designated onsite parking.
Rooms at the Magna Praia reflect the hotel’s tropical locale: Large windows let in plenty of sun and sea-breeze and offer beach views, while the white walls contrast against dark-wood furniture and accents to create a rustic, tropical atmosphere. Plan a day in the city with complimentary wireless Internet access and watch cable channels on the TV. All of these air-conditioned rooms include 24-hour room service, mini-bar, safe, and desk.
