My wife and I were enjoying a short holiday there in September 2015. Esmeralda Praia Hotel is a very good hotel. Nice atmosphere. The guest service is good. Breakfast and dinner are very good, they have much variety. Musical groups at night are very good. Have an excellent pool. I recommend it.

Positive points: -Nice location - Clean and rooms, - Average food - Good service. Negative: - Music during day in the swimming pool was too high, I was looking for a place to relax - You have to pay to use the sauna - The beach in front is not the best

Stayed in Natal for the first few nights of our World Cup adventure. After a long journey to get to Brazil this hotel was a pleasant host. Clean rooms, friendly staff, quality food, joyous environment (many Americans after they beat Ghana), spoke English, good location to beach/transportation and was within walking distance of the main street with restaurants/bars.

I have just returned after a two week stay at the Esmeralda Praia Hotel in Natal. It was our first time in Brazil and we were there for the first phase of the World Cup Finals. We had an amazing stay there. The hotel is in a fabulous location right beside the wonderful and unspoilt Ponta Negra beach. We were... More

Well, this hotel was a waist of money and time! Let me begin with the start. When we arrived, we were suprised that no-one in the reception knew english. Well, we finally spoke to a receptionist who knew a little english. We got checked in, and the receptionist told us that we had to pay immediately for our stay, and... More

It's a great hotel, it's in a great spot of the city, very close to the sea. The hotel food is good. The elevators could be better, but that's not a big deal. The prices of the hotel are reasonable. So I recommended it.

Again we bought our stay from Decolar.com and we got a good discount. We paid R$280 for couple per night with full pension. This place is beautifully decorated especially the reception and halls. Very impressive for the first glance. Unfortunate,the music is very loud for those want a quiet place to rest. The management need to isolate the noise better.... More

I do not know who ranks Brazilian hotels. But, frankly, the criteria are completely different from the American ones. According to the American standards this hotel will never be ranked as four star hotels. This doesn’t mean that it is a bad hotel. It means that this is a three star hotel, and if someone goes there expecting to find... More
