“The best family vacation ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

I highly recommend this hotel. (1) beautiful seaside location; (2) great room, clean and comfortable. We had the 2 bedroom suite to have some adult time away from the children; (3) nice breakfast buffet - we got to try new foods and there was always something for my picky-eater baby; (4) staff was so helpful, many spoke English &/or Spanish; (5) having our own terrace with a jacuzzi tub was perfect! The children played in the jacuzzi when the adults were tired of being sandy at the beach; (6) game room area with pool table & ping pong table gave the kids something to do when it rained or we had enough sun. Family has voted to make Aquaria Hotel a regular destination.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite with a jacuzzi on the terrace!

This hotel has a great location very close to the beach (just cross the street). The room was clean.
The negative parts: awful breakfast (sloppy and messy), staff that didn't receive proper trainning, swimming pool with annoying loud music... So if you are looking to relax in a paradisiac place... Try another one.

Stayed 2 days at Aquaria hotel in Natal and loved it! Our 2 teenage kids loved the private outdoor jacuzzi and my husband and I loved the swim up bar at the hotel pool. The furnishings in the room were quite basic but you aren't really in your room that much if you are doing Natal right, lol! Rooms were clean, breakfast bar was included and was nice. Hotel staff really tried to speak English to us and several had very good English. Spend a day just hanging out at the pool or beautiful beach just steps away and then another day doing the dune tour. I will be doing a write up about Marazul dune tours separately. The price cannot be beat for this hotel, staff and beautiful quieter location

Room Tip: We stayed on the 5th floor, which has the most private jacuzzi - recommend this floor for romantic c...

Just few steps from the beach, you'll find great food few meters from hotel, furthermore bars, souvenirs and tourism agencies where you can buy sightseeing through the city.
Good breakfast and cool staff.
Rooms are very comfi and the swimming pool with sea view is amazing.
Highly recommend, we're planning another visit to the city staying at the same hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room, if you don't care waking up early with some music and/or noise coming f...

Aquaria is the most undervalued hotel in Natal and is very highly recommended.

I spend 2 weeks in Natal every summer so I’m quite familiar with the area. While Serhs is an alleged “5 Star” hotel & Aquaria is rated “4 Star”, there’s no comparison in terms of value for what you get.

For about the same cost you can either have a “basic” room @ Serhs (very small room) or a “Grand Master Suite” @ Aquaria which features your own private deck, Jacuzzi and beautiful oceanfront views.

The management team & hotel staff at Aquaria is incredibly friendly and the service is much more personalized because it is a smaller, quieter hotel than Serhs.

Aquaria is also located right in the heart of the Ponta Negra Beach whereas Serhs is in a very isolated area roughly 2500 feet away from all of the “local action”. The isolation makes Serhs an excellent choice for those who prefer a very quiet, uncrowded area to “get away from it all”. Aquaria, on the other hand, brings travelers right to the heart of the local culture and creates an opportunity for the “full experience” of what beachside Natal has to offer.

Room Tip: Grand Master Suite w/ private deck & jacuzzi

Short taxi trip from Natal Airport at a cost of R$50 = USD 25. The hotel is located 250 meter from the famous sand hill at Ponta Negra. They served a good breakfast buffet and had "cool" family room with private jacussi. In our view it was very good value for money.

Stayed for 1 night only after a 10 days conference and before travelling home which is 10km away. The hotel looks brand new and the rooms are very confortable and quiet. A wonderful beach just across the street with warm water. If you prefer to stay at the pool, this is also a good option.

Room Tip: Higher floors the best view and less noise
