Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 1.0 /10

    Located right at the entrance to Vía Costeira, one of the main hotel districts in Natal, right by the sea, the hotel is approximately 13 mi from Natal Airport and a little over 3 mi from the city centre.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    Of the 188 rooms of the Pestana Natal hotel, 156 are included in the deluxe category. They have their own balcony with a table and chairs looking out over the swimming pool and the sea. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, their walls boasting colourful (predominantly red) and cheerful colours with equally colourful paintings, a white ceramic-tiled floor, and furniture created from huge tree trunks. The wicker headboards match the bedside tables, and next to the cushy and comfortable bed, there is a mirror adorned with a wooden goldfish. The adjustable lighting will enable you to create various atmospheres: one that is better for reading, relaxation, etc. Of course, in addition to the TV and a fully stocked mini-bar, there is also a safe and a luggage rack. Unfortunately, this initial good impression will vanish as soon as you enter the bathroom, as it is old-fashioned and decorated in dull tones of beige, brown and pink. Moreover, the shower curtain is in a poor state and the ancient mirror is in a shabby condition. Some have a bathtub, others a shower, and you'll nevertheless find numerous hospitality products, a make-up mirror, a hair-dryer and good lighting.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    From the Via Costeira, this red and yellow, pyramid-shaped hotel is a striking building. This 5-star establishment opened in 1999 and was renovated in 2009. It features and impressive entrance hall with high ceilings, large bay windows bordered by long white and blue curtains, and round designer armchairs. The setting sets the tone for what is to come: namely a modern and pleasant hotel. Some flower arrangements and other little decorative touches such as large amphorae add to the general tastefulness of the place. There is also a computer providing some tourist information. Beyond the entrance hall, past the leather and wicker armchairs, you'll arrive at a terrace that affords a lovely view of the sea, Ponta Negra bay, the swimming pools and the garden. Still on the ground floor, the Pestana houses an art gallery that displays the works of local artists all year round.

    There is a kids club for children aged over 5, where they can play games, draw and take part in theatre productions, to mention just a few of the activities on offer in this room with yellow walls decorated with science fiction characters. Next to this room, there is an outdoor playground including several slides.

    The garden surrounding the swimming pool extends towards the sea and provides a pleasant and attractive setting. The thatched parasols blend seamlessly into the landscape. On the same level as the volley ball pitch, you'll find the spa, open daily from 10:00am to 9:00pm. It offers massages from 2:00pm onwards using products by the Occitane brand, a company from the South of France. The small treatment rooms, with their wooden ceilings and dimmed lighting, provide a highly relaxing atmosphere. There is also a jacuzzi here, affording sea views. As for the gym, this is fitted with all sorts of machines (a tread mill, bikes, various weight-lifting apparatus) but could do with being a bit more spacious. Finally, the Pestana also features its own hairdressing salon and beauty treatment rooms.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The breakfast buffet is served every morning from 6:30am to 10:00am in the groundfloor restaurant. This is a small room with parquet flooring, white and blue curtains, and white chairs and tables, and it looks out onto the garden. Lunch and dinner are also served here (the latter only during busy periods). Theme buffets are frequently organised, offering North-Eastern cuisine, Bahia specialities, feijoada and Italian dishes. Furthermore, musical entertainment is generally provided. In the summer, the poolside restaurant serves grilled specialties under a thatched roof. Of course, if you wish, you can also have a sandwich at the poolside bar.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The beach of Vía Costeira can be accessed directly from the hotel, and is reached via the garden, down a small set of steps. If you would like some deckchairs and a parasol (or even a drink), you can request these at reception. The Pestana has its own team of lifeguards who keep a watch over bathers from 7:00am to 5:00pm, and depending on the tides and the time of the year, the beach may only be accessible for 6 hours a day. A large stretch of fine sand with warm water, the beach is nevertheless a bit narrow and highly exposed to the wind. There are various types of algae in the sea, but of course this depends on the time of day and the season. You should find out about the prevailing currents before taking a dip.

    To know

    The Pestana Natal belongs to a Portuguese group that owns hotels in various African countries (including South Africa and Mozambique), in Argentina, in Brazil, and in London, as well a series of establishments in Portugal and Madeira.

      This hotel on the Via Costeira in Natal, with its 3 storeys and light colours, blends perfectly into the surrounding landscape. Situated in a relatively pleasant setting overlooking the sea and with a large number of palm trees, it has 210 guest rooms and villas. It also has direct access to the beach, where there is a bar and several deckchairs and parasols. Excursions can also be booked at reception. A children's club welcomes younger guests every day of the week and billiards and foosball tables are available for general use. Unfortunately, the façade of the Vila do Mar is in need of renovating and the rooms could do with some updating.

      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 Rosa Náutica stands beside the sea at the heart of Ponta Negra, where it is surrounded by shops and restaurants. This is undoubtedly one of its advantages. Owing to its simple features and lack of any particular charm, the Rosa Náutica looks more like a family-run guest house, or even a hostel, than a hotel. The guest rooms are small and rustic, and offer the basic necessities: a bed, television and mini-bar. You should not expect to find very many facilities here, either. If you love the sea as much as the owner does, you will probably like the ocean theme running through the decor.

      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.

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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

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.
