Once I landed in Natal after 1 AM, a cab was arranged ($100 R) to drive me to my lodging for the night – the Pousada Castanheira in Ponta Negra. The cab driver drove like a maniac, which was good considering how tired I was… until he recognized he did not know where he was going. His route had me... More

If like me you prefer a cosy place rather than the impersonal big hotels, this place is for you. The pousada is in a very well located house near Morro do Careca in Natal, 30 meters from the beach. The owner and staff are very nice, the rooms are correct (without the usual mold smell you find in many Natal... More

If you like small, friendly, well run hotels near the beach this is for you. Lovely little bar and pool, nice rooms and excellent staff. We were at the nearby Serhs Hotel but hated it. I wish we could have stayed longer but we will be back. Breakfast was great too. Highly recommended but bring your mosquito repellent!

Pousad Castanheira is very centrally located - just few steps from the Ponta Negra beach. The staff is very gentle and helpful. Really, nothing to complain about! The rooms are quite simple but comfortable (some are a bit dark), there are hammocks, plenty of trompical plants in the garden. A nice spot if you're staying in Natal for a night... More

The pousada had the warmest of welcomes, we arrived late at night and availed of the excellent selection of meals available, eaten by the pool, with a free welcome caipirinha. Excellent facilities, with a touch of real character throughout, where every item of furnishing is clearly chosen to enhance the overall effect. Very spacious public areas. Spotlessly clean. Great local... More

I got an all in price of R$110 a night. For this I got a large clean room with air-con, spotless en suite bathroom and a small veranda with a hammock. The breakfast was okay by Brazilian standards, not the widest variety of fruit, juices and breads but the staff are happy to whip up eggs and omelets on request.... More

Don't be fooled by the glossy website! This Pousada is on a steep hill, and near some distinctly dodgy areas. Electrified wire fences are testament to that. The "sea view" is partly obscured by advertising hoardings. Some friends of ours had paid a deposit, but were told on arrival the room wasn't available, and were dumped at another Pousada. There...
