About Esmeralda Praia Hotel, Natal

Situated seafront in Natal's Ponta Negra, the 4-star Esmeralda Praia Hotel offers you direct access to the golden sand. This gorgeous property is set just above the northern end of Praia de Ponta Negra, a prime location. You're well-placed to explore area dining, shopping, and nightlife--and of course, to enjoy the sun and the surf. Natal's other acclaimed beaches are within easy reach, too: Less than 5-minute drive away, you can hop onto Via Costeira, the coastal road that stretches north. Parque das Dunas, a protected swath of Atlantic forest, extends along this byway's west side, making for a particularly scenic drive. And parking is free at Esmeralda Praia, so bringing your own wheels is a snap.

After a day of sight-seeing, cool off in the sizable pool area, where you can relax with a cold drink from the bar. Throughout the day, the hotel hosts games, fitness classes, and live music here, providing fun for all ages. Bringing your little ones? Esmeralda Praia has a lot to offer, including a children's pool. The full-service facility features massages, body wraps, a spa tub, and a sauna.

When you've worked up an appetite, see what's on offer at the 24-hour Restaurante Esmeralda, serving up an extensive menu of buffet and à la carte options. A complimentary breakfast includes go-to selections such as eggs and sausage; regional favorites like tapioca; and breads and pastries baked onsite.

At the end of the day, retiring to your guestroom is a pleasure. Each opens to a furnished outdoor balcony, where you'll have either a picture-perfect view of the beach and palm-studded surroundings, or views of the pool, where colored underwater lights add nighttime drama. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel. Kick back with the 21-inch LCD TV and a treat from the minibar; room service is available 24 hours. Air conditioning and plush pillowtop mattresses help you sleep comfortably.

Esmeralda Praia Hotel, Natal
Super value for great beach hotel.
Everything was great super good value for very well designed hotel. Rooms cry large and nice design, food was good and service great. Only thing they could improve on is install premium bedding as the bed was large but not very comfortable same for pillows it wouldn't take much to raise the bar.
