I stayed with my wife during an urological meeting in November. The first thing we noticed was the air conditioning. It had a bad smell and was really noisy. We had to ask for a room change but in the next one the situation was even worse: it didn't function and the tv reception was terrible. The breakfast seemed unappetizing,... More

I felt it necessary to write this review as my husband and I stayed at this place a while ago for one week, It was absolutely awful, the staff were rude, even though we speak Portuguese!, the room was awful, the food was not edible and it forced us to take expensive taxi rides out every day most days twice...

We stayed at the hotel in September and there were a number of things we greatly disliked. First of all, we had paid half board and at the time of choosing the meals, we found we had nothing worth eating unless we paid extra for the meal. We ended up dinning somewhere else. The second issue we had was internet.... More

It was just completely different from any picture I could see on the website. There weren't bellboys at the front door (I couldn't see bellboys in the hotel at all, actually) and the receptionist was very impolite, rude and not helpful at all.The room I stayed for a night had a very bad decoration and It wasn't comfortable at all....

Very well located, in the beach strip close to downtown and main attrations (but far enought that you can not walk to attractions), the refursbished rooms are OK and breakfast is well served although a bit crowded (needs some refurbishment too). We found it very adequate, although far from superb.

The hotel (entirely renovated) is located in front of the beautiful beach of Natal. It has 3 pools (one of infinity style with a beautiful ocean view) plus two bars located near the swimming pools, a spa and fitness center. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need. Mostly have ocean views. Their prices are accessible to the service... More

Its a seaside hotel in a central location with great, I'd say spetacular views, and probably because of that they think they can charge you absurd fares for a very poor service. The room amenities are old, incomplete and work badly: old small TV with bad signal, air conditioning too weak to face Natal's powerful sunlight, place at the same... More

This is worse than a backpackers hostel, at least the hostel is cheap. The service is horrendous, staff has very poor command of English (or even their native Portuguese, as a matter of fact). The rooms are horrible. Don't even consider this place as an option.
