About Rifoles Praia Hotel And Resort, Natal

Rifoles Praia Hotel And Resort is set oceanfront at the northernmost point of beautiful Praia de Ponta Negra, giving you direct beach access in a quieter setting away from the crowds. From this 8-story hotel, you have great views all the way down Ponta Negra. Via Costeira curves to its end here, too; rent a car at Rifoles Praia and take an afternoon drive north along this stretch of coastline, where upscale hotels run the length of Praia Barreira d'Agua on one side, and Parque das Dunas, a protected swath of Atlantic forest, extends up the other. You can be back in time for dinner at popular seafood restaurant Camaroes, a 5-minute walk. Traveling on business? This hotel places you less than a half-mile (700 meters) from Centro de Convencoes de Natal. Onsite parking is provided, and a doorman or doorwoman and elevator attendant will welcome you.

If pure leisure brings you to Rifoles Praia, give yourself time to explore 5 outdoor pools, which includes a spa tub, children's pool, and adults' pool (when the complimentary children's club comes in handy, as well as the babysitting or childcare available for an additional fee). And take a few minutes to relax on the pool sun loungers. Complimentary welcome cocktails are served here Saturday nights, and you can always order a drink at the pool or lobby bars, or on the beach. For extra pampering, treat yourself to a massage, body treatment, facial, manicure and pedicure, or hair services at Sense Spa before dinner.

The restaurant features themed buffets, Nordestino cuisine, and an extensive wine menu. For lunch, try barbecue at Palhoca restaurant, overlooking the water. A seaside snack bar also serves light fare if you don’t want to leave the beach. Breakfast is on offer daily, and limited-hour room service is available. Multilingual staff can assist with anything you wish.

Like the restaurants, the fitness center has Ponta Negra views, a nice distraction while burning off mealtime indulgences. Personal trainers can help you make the most of your workout. Afterward, decompress in the steam room. If work, rather than working out, is on the agenda, head to the Internet lounge. A 24-hour business center is available, and complimentary wireless Internet access offered throughout the hotel.

Ready to call it a day? Relax in the lobby with TV and complimentary newspapers. Then retire to the comfort of your air-conditioned guestroom and lanai, and savor fresh evening air and views of the sea through windows that open. Enjoy a fragrant hot shower with complimentary toiletries in the private bathroom, then prepare to go out again when you wish with the makeup/shaving mirror. Rooms come with a 32-inch LCD cable TV, desk, clock radio, direct-dial phone, and wake-up calls, as well as a minibar and compact refrigerator. Daily housekeeping, infant cribs, and rollaway beds are available.

In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

Very Good8.0
Great location for a beachfront getaway
Great hotel for a relaxing getaway - beautiful views, wonderful pools, good food and service, easy beach access. Being at the north end of the Ponta Negra beach strip, it's in a very quiet neighborhood - meaning there are no other restaurants or bars right nearby or along the waterfront, though there are several good options a few blocks inland.
