    Villa Mayor is a wonderful little oasis in the heart of the downtown area. The staff are very accommodating and helped us with late checkouts, car parking and were always on hand to help us. We loved having a sundowner by the pool in the evening.

    This time everythng was just perfect

    We have been twice at this Hotel. First time, 3 weeks ago, we got a room with no oppurtunity to open the Windows - that was a bad room. But this time we got a beautiful room with big lovely bed and a balcony. And a wonderful view to the garden. So be aware that the rooms are very different.

    There is no elevator. The last day, the hotel was full and not enough room, plates for everyone. The suggestions for car rental and tours wasn't the best, so look around before committing to any service.

    The staff was very kind and helpful. Close to the beach without being expensive. Fresh tapioca for breakfast!

    Swimming pool is way too small for the number of guests. I never heard of leaving 10% of your total bill for the reception staff and they weren`t even that great...it`s optional but still...

    Very good breakfast. Spacious room. Very clean. Great location. Loved the decor.

    The free wifi dropped out all the time.

    A true oasis with good location in central a Fortaleza. Close to the Beira Mar beach (one block away) and the genuine beach market in the evenings. Friendly and family like approach from the staff and a beautiful breakfast with lovely ponte queso (cheese buns), tapioca and fresh fruits. Nice pool and social area. Joyful for families. Relaxing and romantic for couples.

    The pool is only 0.7m so it's not a "pool" it's a wading area - don't expect to be taking deep swims, more sitting - We were on the third floor and the property doesn't have a lift and it's 6 flights of stairs up to the top level - you need to take this into consideration if you are unfit, have a disability etc bc it's a big climb The lady/ladies who make the tapioca in the morning are terrible - as a chef I expect there is a minimum of care for service and this fails. The tapioca is thick every morning we were there (3 nights) and despite some ingredients being on the buffet table right next to where you order tapioca, we were told tapioca couldn't be made with them. When I asked if I brought them over could she make it she would but the tapioca that came back was on the same plate that was covered in condiments wiped from the plate, and dumped in the centre of the tapioca. My point is a lack of care or desire to assist in this area of the hotel. Front desk staff are much much better. She also makes waffles and those are terrible too

    Breakfast was good except for the lady who makes the Tapioca (see below) Internet is fast and accessible in the rooms Location close to beach, markets, pharmacy, restaurants etc
