Really good resort, confortable rooms, helpful staf and good restaurant. Breakfast and dinner are usually included. The swiming pools area is amazing. Don't miss the typical tapiocas (both seet and salty) at the breakfast.

You definitely have to lower your expectations to be happy with this hotel. Front desk ok. Nice free parking garage. Everything else is poor, the restaurant is appalling (breakfasts as well). Ponta negra is a crowded beach hardly enjoyable on a high tide. Choose a cheap hotel - if you will - and rent a car to avoid the city... More

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night on a business trip. The facilities deserve an update but the decor is nice, as well as recreation area. The bed was good, the staff are very attentive and the breakfast was also very good. The shower water was not hot, there was a leak in the bathroom sink to wet the... More

Stayed at Rifoles while attending a conference at the convention centre. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Wifi was decent although a bit intermittent. Staff were very helpful, especially since we lost our luggage and needed help to get it back. Would definitely stay again. Four stars due to noise and renovations.

Every year, I stay in Natal for two weeks on a business related trip. The family orientated climate at Rifoles is so wonderful, I now pull the kids out of school for one of those weeks so my entire family can enjoy the heavenly stay with me.

I would highly recommend staying at Rifoles when in Natal. The hotel is situated directly on a beautiful soft sand beach, with beach chairs and umbrellas on the sand. The currents in the ocean are a bit strong so be careful and don't go out too far. The staff couldn't be better. Remember, you're in Brazil and most workers don't... More

Rifoles hotel is wonderful located by the Ponta Negra beach and the view from the pool is stunning. The hotel is a bit old and the hall as well as the bedrooms are painted in dark colors and have dark wood so it gets a little heavy. It is not what you expect in a beach hotel but after the... More
