The name Barreira Roxa means Purple Clay, a reference to the color of the dark soil of the area.
This hotel is situated at the northern end of Via Costeira beach; it is the hotel of Via Costeira closest to Praia do Meio and the Historic Center, and the farthest from Ponta Negra; the hotel closest to it (visible in the image above) is Porto do Mar Hotel.
The hotel has a very good restaurant-school (read more about it below). At a walking distance, there are also restaurants Tabua de Carne and Moqueca Capixaba.
There is a free bus which serves Via Costeira; read more.

This hotel-school belongs to the Government of the State of Rio Grande do Norte. It is used as a training center for hotel staff, including managers, cookers, waiters, maids, etc. Several hotels in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte and Brazilian northeast send their employees to be trained here.

The Government doesn't have the same investment capacity as the private hotels, so, expect instalations to be a little worn out. In turn, this hotel has the lowest prices in Via Costeira; check hotel prices. Also, as this is a school for hotel staff, you may expect good service; the restaurant is particularly recommended (read more below).

The beach is close, but not suited for bathing (too many rocks).

Two swimming pools, for adults and children.

A small ring for jogging.

restaurant barreira roxa

The restaurant is particularly recommended; non-customers are welcomed.
The restaurant is also a school, so this chef is the one who teached a few other chefs in the city.
The restaurant specializes in shrimp and regional food. Also, on Saturdays, the place gets crowded with people coming for the feijoada.
Quality is good, and prices are lower than other hotels in Via Costeira.
