Built in 2010, Ponta Do Sol Praia Hotel offers modern comfort about halfway down the beautiful beach of, just steps from the golden sand. Head down to the water fairly early in the morning to rent a lounger; it's well worth it to enjoy some of Natal's 27° C (80° F) average temperatures and spectacular views of Morro do Careca, the "bald" dune 1.5 km (less than 1 mile) away, at Ponta Negra's end. For a taste of the local flavor, stroll along the seafront to check out the restaurants and shops, or cab less than 10 minutes to Alto do Ponta Negra, the beating heart of this area's popular nightlife. Driving is also a convenient option with Ponta Do Sol's free parking. If you can, take a day trip to gorgeous Pipa, 1.5 hours out of town, or just a scenic, 25-minute jaunt up the coastal road, Via Costeira, to Praia do Meio and Praia dos Artistas.
While your holiday in bustling Ponta Negra offers plenty of diversions, it's a pleasure to return to Ponta Do Sol. Relax with a frosty drink beside the outdoor pool, or unwind with a soak in the spa tub on the third-floor terrace; both offer breathtaking ocean views. You can dine alfresco just off the pool deck, but even if you want to get out of the sun for a bit, Estupendo Vip restaurant (and many other areas of the hotel) has large windows that look out over the Atlantic for an open, airy feel. A complimentary buffet breakfast is served daily. Venturing out for dinner? Enjoy an aperitif beforehand in the lobby bar, an especially nice option if you're waiting for a friend to join you.
Whether you need to fit a little work or a workout into your leisure schedule, Ponta Do Sol has you covered, with both a business center and a health club with cardio equipment and plenty of natural light. A half-hour in the sauna is a nice reward for your job well done.
Spacious, well-appointed guest accommodations provide king beds, and balconies where you can step out for a breath of ocean air. Some rooms offer direct sea views, while others have side views. Kick back with cable channels on the LCD TV. Wi-Fi is complimentary throughout the hotel, and room service is available 24 hours. Cribs (infant beds) and rollaway beds are also available on request.
