“awesome place, very relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

this is an amazing B&B a bit off from the center, but it is really amazing. The rooms are nice the facility is amazing - very relaxing and comforting. the grounds are immaculate and the location for the breakfast is really nice. The quality of the breakfast was so and so - I had a lot better and was expecting more due to the cost of the B&B and the facility, but was Ok.

It is a bit of a walk from the main street - it is up hill - but irt is really worth while. I wished I could had stayed a bit longer.

Room Tip: room in the top floor are better

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 of two.

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 advice on tours etc, extremely helpful staff. Location is about 25 meters from the (very well policed) beach. By European standards, the cost is almost laughably cheap for accommodation of this quality.

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.

The pousada itself is very clean (as you come to expect in Brazil), has a small pool, internet connection and is a quiet and relaxing place to hang out. The TV in the room had cable. The beach is all of two minutes walk away and along the beachfront you have all the bars, cafes and restaurants you need.

Tereze and João run the pousada and are a friendly helpful couple and speak English. From what I saw while there this is a great option for someone going to Ponta Negra, much cheaper than the hotels but still very comfortable and giving up little in terms of what's on offer. Highly recommend.

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 are dozens of places to choose from in Natal, pousada castanheira is best avoided.
