With private balconies that offer stunning ocean views, the SUN Ocean View certainly delivers on its name. In addition to 88 affordable rooms 1 block from the beach, the hotel offers a breakfast buffet and complimentary wireless Internet.
With year-round tropical weather, picturesque beaches, and a thriving nightlife, it's easy to see why Fortaleza is becoming an increasingly popular destination for foreign travelers. The SUN Ocean View hotel is located just steps from Avenida Beira Mar, the main beachfront promenade, giving guests easy access to everything that makes this city such a popular destination. One of the most authentic glimpses of northeast Brazilian life can be found just 1 block away at Mucuripe Beach, where you can watch fisherman bring in their daily catch using traditional wooden boats. These boats, called jangadas, have become an unofficial symbol of this region. Futuro Beach, 3 miles (5 kilometers) away, is also well worth a visit. Enjoy a Caipirinha, Brazil's national cocktail, while sitting under one of the rustic leaf-roofed cabanas that line the beach. At night, locals and tourists flock to the Praia de Iracemea neighborhood, 2 miles (3 kilometers) from the hotel, for music, comedy, and dancing.
Start your day like a local with fresh tropical fruit and juices from the SUN Ocean View restaurant. Room service is also available. After breakfast, walk down to the unique pool area that features palm shaded lounge chairs and views of the beach and skyline. Keep up with your workout routine at the fitness center or treat yourself to some downtime in the steam room. If you want to explore beyond the beach, let the 24-hour front desk staff arrange a city tour or diving excursion for you. And, as an added convenience, the hotel provides complimentary onsite parking.
Even when you return to your room you can enjoy the beach with spectacular views from your private balcony. Stay cool with air conditioning and drinks from the refrigerator. You can watch TV and plan a day in the city with complimentary wireless Internet access. All rooms have cooking facilities and a safe.
