Two ocean-view pools steal the show at this grand hotel. The entertainment is well worth staying in for, too.
There’s a colonial feel to this stylish hotel, with its high ceilings and dark-wood detail. But the first thing you’re likely to notice is the ocean view – it’s particularly impressive from the two lagoon pools.
A mix of local and international dishes makes the menu in the buffet restaurant, while the entertainment features everything from piano music to flamenco dancing. The nearest beach and bars are only a 10-minute walk away.
This hotel will be part of the adults-only Sensimar range from November 2016.
The lagoon-style pools come with sunbeds and parasols dotted around the surrounding sun terraces. There are tropical trees on the terraces providing that bit of extra shade, plus there's a whirlpool bath too. Pool towels are available.
You'll get breakfast and dinner here at the buffet restaurant. There's themed nights twice a week, weekly gala buffets and show cooking, where you can watch dishes being prepared right in front of you. Dinner is between 6pm and 9pm in winter. Special dietary requirements can be catered for if reception are advised at least 48 hours in advance. If you'd like an à la carte item that isn't available from the buffet, a charge will apply. Just so you know, gentlemen will need to wear long trousers in the restaurant for dinner.
Double rooms are bright and classically styled with lots of natural daylight - they can sleep up to 3 with 2 two beds and a sofa-bed as required. There's a balcony outside and you're right next to the seaside. Your room will be air-conditioned and there'll be direct dial telephone, minibar, bathrobes and a hairdryer.
Single rooms are warm and smart - they're fully air-conditioned for those warms days too. There's outside space - you'll have a balcony and you're right by the seaside. You'll also find bathrobes, direct dial telephone, hairdryer, minibar and satellite TV.

Our third visit here, although previous two were both in January. The rooms are always well maintained and clean. The restaurant service is excellent and there is a tremendous range of food that should cater for even the most fussy of eaters. There is always a great range of salads and the freshly grilled meat and fish is excellent. Some complain that this food can be overcooked but in fairness, the staff clear away any freshly cooked food that isn't taken very promptly.If you wait a couple of minutes they will always cook a piece of fish or meat from fresh. The Gala dinner is superb with highlights including fillet steak and whole edible crab.
The Animation team lay on a good range of activities including ping pong,mini golf and petanque and always do so with a smile. They also organise the evening entertainment which features some very good live bands. Especially look out for New Line featuring an Italian " Amy Winehouse ".
The hotel has great amenities and is very well run. A very relaxing place to stay. Highly recommended.More
excellent stay yet again
We visited the Natura for a week at the end of May, we upgraded to a suite on arrival and this was a very good decision, excellent room and what's more large balcony with sunloungers overlooking the sea. We had stayed 6 times previously at the Natura and this was the first visit following the recent improvements to the restaurant and the pool bar, this has improved the hotel beyond its already high standards.
We would echo the praise from other reviewers and would not hesitate to recommend the hotel for a relaxing holiday.
The hotel is soon to undergo a further upgrade and it will be interesting to see these at our next visit.More
Another lovely holiday
Cannot fault this hotel for service and food. Accomodation is good and upgraded rooms available. Do wish they had kettles in rooms as standard though as they are only in the top superior rooms. The outside area has been further enhanced with a lovely bar and restaurant by the pool. A covered seating area with lounge chairs and sofas all done in good taste and fresh and clean. Prices reasonable for meals too. Usually when we travel in April there are few if any children and with the relaxing of the rules regarding school holidays we are worried that this will impact on the tranquility of the hotel. It only takes one noisy family to completely ruin the peace and quiet of the beautiful gardens full of birdsong. Mostly when we go it is older (55 plus) age group and that is the way we like it. Entertainment a bit mixed and the disco could do with a more planned approach as very few people stay after the show due to them playing Spanish music not disco or pop. The Marea bar is very near and that has a live band or singer on several nights a week. Only small but modern and classy. Would stay at this Hotel again as it has everything you could want for a relaxing holiday away from a noisy town or beach. Shops are a good half hour walk away but there is a small supermarket across the road. Hotel is spotless and pool is clean but cold, there is a small gym which doesn't open early enough but is not well used anyway. There are a few activities organised by the team. The Stretching/Yoga is relaxing in the sunny gardens early morning. In short we love it, mostly for the quiet. There is only free wifi in the lobby area, unless you pay. Not sure what the charge covers you for.More

Good and Bad
My friend and I went to Natura Palace Hotel for a week at end of May and really liked it - food, restaurant, most staff were excellent. Lovely pools, enough sunbeds. Also we were upgraded to a suite as we didn't have a sea view as expected. I was booking again for November when sadly â¬400 went missing from our room - from 2 separate locations. Accept we should have taken a safe but the Managaress, Stephanie, didn't believe us - she all but called me a liar and had me in tears. We did not lie and definitely won't go back to be treated like that again. Ruined the last few days of our holiday as we felt very uncomfortable. Also room wasn't cleaned just beds made - we had a spa bath where the tide mark remained until we cleaned/used it again 2 days later and every day thereafter!! More
