Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Imirá Plaza is situated on the seafront and is one of the main hotels on Vía Costeira. As the building is only three storeys high, it blends in well with the landscape. It has a garden with a swimming pool, a tennis court with sea views, a mini gym and a massage service. The establishment also has shops selling articles made by local craftsmen, as well as a travel agency where you can sign up to take part in various excursions in the region and the traditional buggy ride across the sand dunes at Genipabu. The rooms might be basic, but they do provide all the necessary facilities. However, some parts of the hotel are a bit old-fashioned and could do with some improvements.

    Location 6.47 /10

    The Imirá Plaza is located at the heart of Vía Costeira, one of the main resort areas in Natal. It stands directly on the seafront, some 12 mi from Natal airport and about 3 mi from the city centre.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    Getting to the guest rooms in the Imira Plaza entails a bit of a walk. The hotel has 166 guest rooms spread over three floors, so you may have to walk down little corridors and cross various parts of the hotel before getting to your own door. This is something worth knowing before you arrive! All the standard rooms provide quadruple accommodation, and there are also 49 superior rooms. In terms of the decor, the rooms are all very simple. Their floors are lined with light-coloured marble, and there is a little plastic table and chairs, a wardrobe combining a rustic look with 1970's style, and a television and mini-bar. The yellow walls adorned with colourful pictures match the curtains, and the wooden headboard goes well with the little bedside tables, which are made of the same colour of wood. If you wish to use the safe, you will need to ask for the key at reception. The superior rooms have a balcony with a sea view, while the standard rooms have to make do with views over the car park. Apart from the hair-dryer and rather minimalist beauty set in the bathroom, you will find a noisy fan and a mirror from another era.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    This three-storey building with a white façade does not look out of place in the landscape around Vía Costeira. The hotel was opened in 1987 and renovated in 2009. Its hall has a marble floor and a wooden ceiling, and is furnished with 1970's style white, yellow and brown leather armchairs. The decor also includes colourful and abstract paintings, little statues made locally and a chest of drawers adorned with porcelain vases. Two telephones are provided for clients to use next to the reception counter. There is also a shop selling craft objects, paintings and beach products (sun cream, etc.), and a travel agency offering various kinds of excursions and buggy hire. Next to the shop, beneath a wooden cross, a large teapot and cups are provided for guests to help themselves at any time of the day. Following a long, wooden walkway, you reach a bar with large, white leather armchairs, big picture windows, a statue of a dancer, and a three-dimensional painting featuring a violin. This space is extremely bright, with light pouring in through its many windows all day long.

    Outside, you find yourself in the swimming pool area. The grass out here looks a bit sorry for itself, and could do with a bit more looking after. A number of plastic chairs and deckchairs are set around the swimming pools. In addition to the volleyball net, there is a play area and a mini football table for children to amuse themselves. Next to the swimming pool is a little structure with a wooden roof. Inside, as well as the gym equipped with three exercise machines, there is a hairdresser's, a massage room with three (rather hard) beds, a cosmetic treatment room and a sauna.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The restaurant at the Imira Plaza is actually split into two dining areas: one is an air-conditioned dining room, while the other is in the open air. All three daily meals are served here. In the morning, the breakfast buffet consists of fruits, cereals, yoghurts and fruit juices, and there is also a space where hot dishes like couscous, scrambled eggs and tapioca are served to order. With their marble flooring and big picture windows overlooking the sea, these two spaces have the advantage of being filled with plenty of natural light. For lunch and dinner, the buffets consist of six different types of salad and four different hot dishes (meat, Naples-style fillet steak, and prawns are a few of the options). The side dishes change each day.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The beach of Vía Costeira can be accessed directly from the hotel, reached via the garden, down a small set of steps. The Imira Plaza has its own deckchairs and parasols that you will need to ask for at the swimming pool bar. Depending on the tides and the time of year, the beach may only be accessible for six hours a day. It is a long stretch of fine sand, and the seawater is warm, although it is a bit on the narrow side and is rather exposed to the wind. Moreover, also depending on the season and the time of day, the sea tends to wash up various types of seaweed. You will also have to watch out for the tidal currents and find out the latest information before you go for a swim.

    To know

    The hotel has a tennis court with views of the sea.

      Located at the start of Vía Costeira, the Ocean Palace overlooks the beach. It stands out for the quantity and diversity of its facilities, among which is an impressive water park, with 4 swimming pools for adults, another 4 for children, 3 hydromassage pools, and a series of bridges and waterfalls. If you feel like a bit of exercise, there is a gym with lots of machines as well as a special Pilates room. With all of these facilities, the Ocean Palace is the perfect establishment for a family holiday. The games room and the 50 seat cinema will particularly please younger guests. As for the accommodation, the guest rooms are comfortable but some of the common areas are a bit dated and could use a change in the interior decorating.

      • Location 6.47

      As you may have guessed, the Parque da Costeira is located in one of the main tourist regions of Natal, on a large avenue by the sea in the middle of the sand dunes park. The swimming pool area is worthy of note, both for it spaciousness and pleasant atmosphere, but also for its seaside location. In addition, the establishment has a gym and a massage parlour. As far as the accommodation is concerned, the interior decorating is a bit disappointing. However, the size of the suites is impressive: they can easily accommodate an entire family. As for the atmosphere, you should probably know that there is a band that plays every night, and you'll dine to the sound of different tunes every evening. It's probably not ideal if you are looking for a relaxing and quiet meal.

      The Marsol hotel is a seaside establishment with 140 rooms that occupies a 3 storey building on Via Costeira. Thanks to the numerous activities it offers, the Marsol is a good hotel for families and for those who can't imagine just spending their holiday lazing around by the pool. With a tennis court, a sports field, and numerous swimming pools, it's the perfect place for active guests and sports enthusiasts alike. It affords direct beach access so that you can enjoy the sea all day long, and even in the evening (while bearing in mind the tide factor). However, the guest rooms at the Marsol are quite Spartan and offer only the bare essentials.

      This simple hotel is located at the heart of the bustling neighbourhood of Ponta Negra. With its swimming pools; games room, with foosball, billiards, table tennis; and various buffets, the hotel is a very attractive place to stay for families. It is worth noting that free Wi-Fi access is available. However, its ranking as a 4 star hotel may seem surprising. You will also have to walk a short distance to get to the beach because there is no direct access from the swimming pool.

      A member of the famous Dutch hotel chain Golden Tulip, this hotel is geared towards a business clientele and is some distance from Praia dos Amores beach, which is around a 15 minute walk away. Although the gym and the swimming pool (both on the top floor) are rather small, the views from the gym go some way towards making up for this. With regards to the guest rooms, they are pretty basic in terms of decor but they do come with an American-style kitchen, which is bright and, above all, spacious. We would, of course, recommend you go for a room in the deluxe or super deluxe category, as they have excellent views.

      • Location 3.47

      Opened in 2008, this 4 star establishment located in the heights of the Ponta Negra neighbourhood has 161 modern and spacious guest rooms. Those in the superior category overlook Ponta Negra bay. In the same building as the hotel there is also a chemist and a shop selling drinks and sweets. The 10 storey building is modern and functional, but a bit short of charm, a few decorative features would go a long way in making it feel more welcoming. If a seaside holiday is what you have in mind, the distance from the hotel to the beach might become a bit of a drag.

      This establishment is one of many hotels located in the lively neighbourhood of Ponta Negra. It faces the beach and does have some communicating rooms to offer its guests. However, the rooms could do with being a bit bigger. Some of the decorative elements in the restaurant deserve a couple of points for originality. As for the swimming pool, this is really pleasant and looks out onto Ponta Negra beach, where you can try your hand at kite-surfing or sailing as the area is exposed to wind right throughout the year.

      • Location 6.47

      As its name might imply, the architecture of the Safari hotel is rather original. Seen from the outside, it looks like a wooden hut that you might expect to find in the middle of the African jungle. It is located in Fonseca Filho street, one of Ponta Negra's main streets, and is a little bit far from the sea (it takes about 5 to 10 minutes to reach the beach). The rooms are simple but their decor is unique and amusing. The suites can comfortably accommodate up to 4 people, thanks to a sofa-bed in the living room. What you might find disappointing, however, is the size of the swimming pool and its proximity to the street. Moreover, the building has been designed in such a way that there are no spaces where you can relax and take advantage of the sun.

      The Serhs Natal is located in the middle of Via Costeira and has several advantages: its location, the variety and quantity of services on offer, the view afforded, and the animations contributing to making this hotel one of the best in town. An entire floor of this establishment is dedicated to games, with billiard tables, foosball, a TV set, a special area for network gaming, a business centre, and a small library. For children, there is a mini-club offering numerous activities, including environmental awareness workshops where they are taught about respecting the environment. With no less than 396 guest rooms, this establishment is pretty huge. Plan on spending some time in the corridors.

      The Pestana Natal is a luxury hotel on the Via Costeira. It opened in 1999 and underwent renovation in 2009, and offers varied facilities, numerous spacious lounges with comfortable, designer armchairs, a spa with several massage parlours, a gym, a hairdressing salon, a huge swimming pool and a sprawling garden. It also offers various forms of entertainment, such as aquagym lessons given daily. Children aged 5 or older can enjoy the numerous activities organised daily at the kids club. The only negative point of the hotel is its rooms: the good first impression you get of the room is dampened as you enter the bathroom, which looks to date from another era.

      The Manary Praia is a charming boutique guest house of a kind not uncommon in Brazil. Its owners, Carla and Eduardo, love welcoming guests, telling them about the history of the Natal region and giving them advice on the best places to visit. They themselves chose the decorative objects, which come from more than 50 countries and can be seen dotted throughout the establishment. The quality of the dishes served in the restaurant makes it a worthy representative of Nordestina cuisine. The location, at the heart of Ponta Negra, is perfect if you wish to make the most of both the sea and the nightlife. It's just a pity that the swimming pool is such a modest size and the guest rooms lack originality in terms of their decorative style, especially when compared to the communal spaces.
