Praia Bonita opened in 2010 and is a small , friendly, quiet resort situated 45min approx drive from Natal’s tourist district the Ponte de Negral. The resort is for those people who seek a chilled relaxing holiday but also who are not afraid to go off the beaten track in search of a little more adventure with the option of hiring a beach buggy (organised by the hotel) to explore the coastal villages, the many lakes and exhilarating sand dunes!!
The resort has 140 rooms/apartments approx, and all rooms have a view of the swimming pools which run in parallel with the 2 storey high apartments. The rooms are fully equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable and are decorated and maintained to a high standard. Our apartment was on the 2nd floor and came with its own Jacuzzi bath on the terrace which was perfect for cooling off in the hot sun!! Free WiFi is available throughout the resort so we were able to tune into a couple of football (soccer) games during our stay, much to the delight of my Husband!! There is a Gym, Games room , large open plan restaurant and bar area with a small stage for light evening entertainment. The swimming pool has a small swim up bar where they make the best caiprifruitas made with kwiwi……delicious!!
Food and drink was fairly priced at the hotel and was comparable to other restaurants with in the area of Tabatinga.
To sum up this hotel is suitable for anyone wanting to escape and recharge their batteries yet it is only a short drive to the nightlife of Natal for those who want to show off there wilder side.
There are 2 or 3 members of staff who spoke English and were more than helpful at the resort however if you are planning on visiting Natal I would suggest that you get a good phrase book!! In general when we were in Natal shopping etc we found very few people who spoke English which made things hard but we got what we wanted in the end lol x
