Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 1.0 /10

    Located right beside the sea on the Vía Costeira, one of the main hotel districts in Natal, the Villa do Mar is approximately 13 mi from Natal Airport and a little over 3 mi from the city centre.

    Accommodation 6.45 /10

    All of the 210 guest rooms at the Vila do Mar have a balcony with a sea view and there is just one word to describe them: basic. Do not expect to find sophisticated decor, the rooms have been furnished with only the bare necessities: white tiled floors (easier to clean), white and red walls with one picture of some flowers, a minibar, and a television placed high up on a shelf. A marble shelf at bed height serves as a bedside table while another serves as a desk. The key to the safe is available from reception. There are red and yellow curtains along one of the exposed brick walls. The style of the room evokes a beach atmosphere. Finally, the wardrobe is a bit small and old-fashioned. As for the bathrooms, they are small and include only a few hospitality products, a hair-dryer, and an old-fashioned shower curtain (transparent with coloured fish).

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Originally opened in 1983, different areas of the hotel are renovated every year. In 2009, work was carried out on 55 apartments. Nevertheless, the white and green façade of this 3 storey building is need of attention and, according to the information we received in March 2010, plans for this were already underway. Walking into the hotel through the main entrance brings you to a large lounge area with black rattan armchairs, white tiled floors, pictures of large brown figures, lamps with rattan lampshades, etc. The television is usually left on all day, sometimes with the volume a little too high. There is a counter with brochures containing information on excursions and from here and the small terrace guests also have a view of the sea. Located on one of the lower floors, the children's club is small and a little dark. It only offers a small number of games and activities related to the hotel's mascot, Vilinhia, and accepts children from the age of 5 upwards. Opposite the swimming pool and a children's playground, there is a shop selling swimwear, dresses, sun creams, and magazines. Deckchairs placed on the grass around the pool offer views of the sea. On the same floor, a small gym/games room has a number of fitness machines as well as a billiards and foosball tables. Open from 3:00pm to 7:00pm, the spa is in a rather unwelcoming location and includes a jacuzzi, a massage room, a hairdresser, and a beauty salon. The facilities also include a volleyball court.

    Food and drink 5.95 /10

    The Vila do Mar has only one restaurant: located near the swimming pool, it is a large room with green walls, marble tables, and fine leather chairs. All of the meals are served here, starting with breakfast from 6:00am to 10:00am. The regional buffet offers a choice of traditional breakfast fare (bread, coffee, tea, jam) and tapioca, often accompanied by pancakes. On Saturdays and Sundays, feijoada (a popular dish made from black beans, rice, and pork meat) and grilled meat are served. Throughout the week, you can try out different dishes including pasta, poultry, seafood, and sandwiches. Every evening a live band plays pagoda music, a typical style of music from the northeastern part of the country.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The hotel offers direct access to the Vía Costeira beach via a number of steps leading down from the garden. The Vila do Mar has its own deckchairs and parasols, and offers a bar service. In addition, a lifeguard monitors the beach every day from 8:00am to 4:00pm. Depending on the tides and the time of year, the beach may only be accessible for 6 hours a day. A large stretch of fine sand with warm sea water, the beach is nevertheless a bit narrow and highly exposed to wind. There are various types of algae in the sea, but of course this depends on the time of day and season. You should enquire about the prevailing currents before taking a dip.

    To know

    During our visit, we were informed that the Vila do Mar has 457 palm tree in its enclosure, making for a very wooded area.

      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 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.

      • Location 9.67

      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.

      • Location 9.93

      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.

      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.
