... you free.” The verse was comforting in itself but I told him I liked it and he said it was from his church. He then told me to read Psalm 125, which says:
"Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, from this time forth and forevermore. For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to ...

... of days were spent on Ponta Negra beach. We've had our next 10 years of Vitamin D in just 10 days. We loved this beach. The waves were just big enough, the sand was just golden enough, the beers were just cold enough and the shopping was awesome! Every couple of minutes a selection of local handicraft, paintings, jewellery, sunglasses, table clothes, hats...would be walked passed us. Crepes, corn, BBQ cheese, BBQ prawns, caipirinhas, ice cream...would also appear intermittently. ...

Match Day Three

A travel blog entry by mattlee18

Our next match of the tournament would be Uruguay vs Italy. Initially we were a little disappointed as England were playing Costa Rica at the same time in Belo Horizonte, but with England out and the match we were heading to being a winner takes all and progresses to the next round we were more than content.

As in Fortaleza we had an influx of Uruguayans to contend with once again as a sea of light blue shirts took over Natal. With this in mind we decided ...

Suicidal Donkeys

... from toga day we fancied a night out and Grafite did some research and found us a club which seemed acceptable. Before we made our way there we had many a caipirinha's in a much better restaurant than the all you can eat prawn place. This night turned into what was later dubbed the night of revelations, mainly from Clean Shirt who was spouting about love and relationships and Junior Lewis who revealed much more entertaining aspects about the ...

... music. It made no sense whatsoever. After careful consideration (and by that we mean randomly finding one of the entrances) we chose one party. The crowd seemed to know all of the songs and was really excited about them, so we think this was basically a Brazilian '80s party. The songs were great if indistinguishable to our untrained ears. We realized there that we had noticed two interesting things about Natal: 1) 50-60%25 of ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Parque da Costeira Natal

    We had a fantastic holiday!

    from

    My boyfriend and I have just got back from spending 7 nights at hotel parque da costeria and we had a fantastic time. The hotel was great, the food and service good, the people/staff helpful and friendly. I must admit we were a little worried about going after reading some unfavourable reviews on trip advisor however, we found these claims of it being a poor hotel unfounded. I think one of the reasons we enjoyed the holiday so much was because it is a new resort for Brits and it hasn't been 'taken over'. I think the people who rated it poorly did so because they expect everthing to be the same as Britain e.g food, entertainment etc. Also we thought that it was really nice that they don't speak a lot of English (how refreshing!) Why do some people expect to go to these places and for it to be exactly the same as Britain??Holidays are for trying new things, experiencing a new culture etc aren't they??Please don't be put off you will have a fantastic time if you have an open mind!

    Not the Costa del Sol & all the better for it!

    from

    Just returned from two weeks holiday 27/12/05 - 11/01/06. Hotel was very clean and food was fine and plentiful. English reviewers need to remember that not all countries believe food should be served at near nuclear temperature! Staff were always pleasant always polite - possibly because we were - and on the one occasion we needed to report a plumbing problem it was fixed within twenty minutes. Room was absolutely fine.

    Be open minded

    from

    We stayed at the hotel over New Year and feel that our experience was not the same as some of the other recent reviews.

    Spend your money elsewhere

    from

    i went to this hotel for xmas and jan with my wife and two kids when we arrived we were given a room but as we were shown inside by the porter we had to refuse it on the grounds of it stunk of mould and sewerage we went back to reception and were given two more rooms to look at but they were no better the reception thought it was funny that i was dissapointed with the situation luckly our rep gary was there and he got on to it and we were at last given a acceptable room.

    Parque de Costeira disappointment

    from

    Just returned from Parque de Costeira in Natal Brazil for our Xmas/New Year Holiday. Very disappointed as Hotel is clearly not able to provide for British AI customers. Rooms very, very basic even superior rooms. Food was unappetising and mostly cold, wine not drinkable. Can walk on beach but not sunbathe or swim. Unfriendly atmosphere and poor service at the bars. Pool and Bar areas not adequate and a bit scummy. We ate out most of the time and found the local restaurants excellent and local people very friendly - nothing wrong with Brazil - just Hotel.

    Hot, but needs more activities.

    from

    13.12.05- 27.12.05, party of 2 adults.Thomsons.First impressions were excellent, but soon found we were rather isolated.Trips out are necessary,& Mauricio's in Ponta Negra offers more variety than Thomsons.Dune buggies can be suicidal or boring - depends on your driver.We had both.Cashews trip really good value & variety - don't be put off by the title.Horse riding & quad bikes both good.Told not safe to hire own car,but buses & taxis plentiful.Hotel clean & spacious, but food & evening entertainment very repeatative.Below standard of our usual AI package.Main pool too small,& sea very rough.Nothing outside hotel,so can't stroll out to the shops & bars - they don't exist.Taxis become expensive over 2 wks.Everyone expects a tip.Wonderful climate,but resort needs to offer more,without losing its charm.Shopping:Free bus to Malls,so go to Praia,then step to RHS of it to find a huge & wonderful array of market stalls(3 storeys high)selling quality wares - no tacky tourist junk. Not many Brits there,& don't expect everybody to speak English.Wonderful experience,but need to see other parts.Suggest non AI so you can move around the country more.

    Isolated hotel

    from

    Hotel is not within walking distance of any shops or bars, town is 10/15min taxi ride away.

    Loved it!!

    from

    We stayed at the Via Costeira and we loved it. Ok the food wasn't brilliant and the entertainment was poor but the hotel was clean and staff were friendly. Yes there is a language barrier but you can't expect everyone to speak English all of the time. We went into Ponte Negra a few nights, where we found the people to be friendly and drinks and food were cheap and we went to lively bars and clubs.

    Hotel Parque da Costeira -basic but clean

    from

    My wife and I went to Parque da Costeira on the first UK package tour with Thomson on 1st November 2005

    What a boring place

    from

    my wife and I went to this hotel on 1st nov.We were the first british tourists on Thomsons inaugeral flight.There was a reception at natal airport where we waited for an hour when all we wanted was to get to our hotel.Check in was quite efficient,however our room was facing a brickwall and had no balcony.We went straight back to reception and requested a change.No problem we were told,go and have dinner and come back.On returning we were allocated a different room with sea view and a balcony.A promising start.The room was small but adequate,but had no drawers and an open plan wardrobe{ie no doors}.There was a fridge stocked with soft drinks and beer,but these were not included in the all inclusive deal we were on.The food was buffet style and was OK but not mouthwatering as per Thomsons brochure.The drinks in the restaurant were waiter service and could take some time to get especially if the waiter spoke no english.Afterward there were two bars ,the lobby bar which shut at 10pm and was limited in available drinks and the main bar which was quite small and rarely had more than two people serving.this bar also provided icecream and coffee.So there it could be quite frustrating trying to get a drink with the locals just pushing in.The problem was worse at weekends when the hotel seemed to be full of locals or people on conventions.
