    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 a kid's club. Take advantage of onsite supervised activities when you need some you-time-whether you work out in the fitness center, complete with cardio and weight machines, or skip straight to the pampering at Esmeralda SPA. 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 full 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.
