The Navegantes Praia Hotel is a picturesque hotel for a picturesque location. The grounds and 15 guestrooms have a rustic, tropical bungalow feel - a perfect fit for the Futuro Beach neighborhood. Just steps from a palm studded beach, this neighborhood has staved off the skyscrapers that line most of the city's other waterfronts.
The wide sandy shores, year-round swimming, and leaf-roofed cabanas of Futuro Beach are just 3 blocks from the hotel, definitely the biggest draw here. Enjoy a Caipirinha, Brazil's national drink, while listening to some live music. Fortaleza's nightlife is concentrated in and around the Praia de Iracema neighborhood, about a 20-minute taxi ride away. Comedy clubs, dance clubs, and music venues are open nightly. The city center is also about a 20-minute drive, and houses most of the city's major corporate offices.
The Navegantes Praia Hotel makes getting around Fortaleza a breeze. Once you arrive you can arrange a car rental at the hotel. The hotel staff can help you book tickets and arrange local tours and outdoor activities, like diving and off-road excursions. The beach isn't the only place to catch some sun, as the quiet, lushly landscaped outdoor pool is the perfect place to lounge with a book. A separate outdoor patio and lounge area has comfy chairs and a hammock. There is no need to waste time in the morning looking for a place to eat - the hotel's breakfast buffet is served daily.
The 15 air-conditioned guestrooms here are individually decorated with rustic, tropical designs. You can watch TV and stay connected with complimentary wireless Internet access. Rooms also include mini-bars, private bathrooms, and telephones. Connecting / adjoining rooms are available.
