"3-day bleisure trip"
I stayed here for a medical convention. It is located by the beach and a 15 minute drive to Ceara Convention Center. The hotel has a rustic appeal, accommodations are simple, but large and clean. The hotel has a beach club right in front with amenities to make your day at the beach more comfortable. Breakfast was good enough with lots of fruits and different kinds of bread. There is not much options for dinner nearby and since I was not in a mood to take a taxi to go somewhere else I decided to use the hotel buffet. Every night they had a thematic dinner in order to avoid being repetitive. I had the Portuguese night and the seafood night. Overall the food was very good, especially the cod fish and the duck rice - two very Portuguese specialties. I knew when I made the reservation what to expect and the hotel fit my expectations. However, Vila Gale Fortaleza is not a high end resort, but a touristic hotel with 3.5 star services/accommodation; comfortable and clean.
"I will never come back!"
This is one of the most terrible Resort all inclusive I ever have been. First of all, the rooms are old, which would be ok if the rest were good, but just not. The food is horrible, really mean terrible. Believe when you see comments saying is almost impossible to eat, because is really true. The most difficult thing to do is eat! The flavor is disgusting in all aspects, and I have a lot of considerations regarding the cleaning. Specially in the restaurants close to the swimming pool. Don't to the special restaurant, it is even worst. Wine an sparkling wine pretty bad too. Very expensive for basic stuff. Get way from this place! To be fair, the beach in front is very nice, but nobody serves you there!
"Super sad/ disappointed "
I'm sitting here at the hotel almost crying. The hotel is ok (typical Brazilian 5 stars, nothing special, most 70's buildings, but ok). The food is ok. Typical Brazilian style: buffet or coma por quilo. The internet comes and goes... but that's ok. But what really drives me to write this review is the beach. It is unbelievable how dirty the beach is. Full of plastic straws, beer tops, plastic bags and plastic bottles, let alone cigarette filters. Those things go directly to the sea animals! Aren't we trying to leave a better place for our children' Where did all the climate change awareness speeches go' As you can see in the pictures, this is simply unbelievable! I stayed almost an hour cleaning the beach that is full of waste bins! Close the hotel if you cannot maintain a clean and environmentally friendly place. Where are the authorities' Am I the only one guest shocked' I'm in room 1014 until tomorrow 10/11/2016
"Old property, mediocre amenities."
This hotel is very very old, and the facilities show it. The rooms are in terrible condition, specially for a hotel that is considered to be "5 stars". The showers don't really work, have mold and calcium build up, are rusted - over not very clean. The safe in the rooms don't have lock mechanism, the pool water is dirty - not a great hotel stay at all.
I spent 7 nights at this hotel and have a nice stay. The hotel has nice accomodations, altough for its size, it gets a little bit noise, even after hours, because of its layout, where the pool area are in the center and most of the rooms face it. Its is well located at the Futuro Beach, it is relativelly calm, even on week ends.
