Hotel Manary Praia
Natal (Natal, Recife and surrounds, Brazil)
In a quiet residential suburb on Ponta Negra beach at the southern end of Natal, about a 15 minute taxi ride from the centre. A member of the Roteiros de Charme group.
Excursions to the interior can be arranged including trips to the world's largest display of pre-historic rock art, dinosaur tracks, remote beaches, or buggy safaris. Within easy reach (1½ hours south) are the stunning beaches around Pipa (home to dolphins and turtles) and north from Natal is Genipabu, where towering sand dunes fall straight into the sea.
25 rooms, all with balconies and partial views to the ocean. The six Luxury rooms look straight out over the ocean. Bar and really outstanding restaurant on the ground floor next to a pool. Basement games room and access to the beach.
A charming small hotel with a wonderful restaurant (especially for fish) owned by the family of geologist and archaeologist Eduardo Bagnoli, a good friend of ours who has sadly passed away. The hotel is a perfect base for explorations into the fascinating north-east of Brazil.

Client comments and reviews
Manary Praia was great (including a glass of cooled coconut water when we finally arrived at 03:15 in the morning). Comfortable with very nice staff, excellent food and a great position. - JR (December 2006)
