Peladópolis in Club 16, a swinger hotel in Brazil.

Finding a swinger hotel in Brazil is rare. Club 16 stands out in this scenario: open all year long and with full liberal programming.

There is no better climate to walk around naked than in the Brazilian Northeast. Rain or shine, clothes are always optional. We are not talking about naturism: Club 16 is a swinger hotel. Sex is allowed in every corner, from the pool to the nightclub.

Club 16 is a simple but friendly hostel. You do not need luxury to take your liberal desires seriously. “Peladópolis” would translate to English as “Nudepolis” (city of nudes).

In Pipa, Rio Grande do Norte (RN), it is hot pretty much every day and Club 16 is open to beginners who may be coming to take a look at this world, as well as veterans of swing, looking for a fully liberal hotel.

Fernando and his wife are in the swinger world for many years. They have chosen to start the swinger hotel to escape the metropolis and they work passionately to maintain a harmonious mood and lively guests.

19 Carnival in Club 16

If it were not for liberal activities that go on, the hostel probably wouldn’t stand out. It’s not the most beautiful, nor the most charming, it’s not close to the beach, and it’s not the cheapest in Pipa. But as a swinger hotel, it is a highlight in Brazil.

Who cares it’s not luxury?

The inn, with its pros and cons, leaves everyone at ease: adventures, sex, swing, voyeurism. If you are looking for a liberal hostel in Brazil with lots of action, you’re going to find it here.

During the Carnival of 2019, there were couples in all rooms. Crowded hostel with a party that lasted all day. That is, as long as the guests could stand it: on Monday, no one could get past midnight.

Who goes to this swinger hotel?

If you think the club is full of overweight seniors, you’ve got it wrong!

When we were there, most of the audience was young and fit. There were three couples with girls in their 20s and the vast majority of those 30 to 50. Even the few couples with the girl over 50 gave us a good overall impression. The audience was top notch: beautiful, smart, and nice.

As soon as we arrived, we made friends with a couple from São Paulo, a beautiful tattooed girl of 19 years and her boyfriend. They arrived hungry and crazy excited to experience this life.

Then we met the newbies, a young couple that had never been to swinger clubs. They were shy and married just a short time ago, both under 30 and very handsome. She bought the Carnival package of surprise gift for her husband, who wanted to live the experience.

We were worried it was a recipe for divorce, but…

It worked out! The night was lively, with the six in the pool, and outdoors. Two days later, the rookie was dancing naked on the boat ride – and the night would have been the best, had it not been for that extra bottle of wine she had.

At the edge of the pool, we spent days chatting with smart and fun couples. A doctor, who was a real connoisseur of whiskey, and his nice ballet dancer girlfriend. Another couple who took extra photos in the early days of Northeast trip to supply the family while they were off to explore their liberal side.

In the pool, pleasant conversations with people gave warm tips from Cap d’Agde to the Temptation Cancun Resort. Many pleasant hours, sex and chat. We learned more about Liberal B&Bs in the world and in Brazil.

The infrastructure of the swinger hotel

It is not a luxury resort. On the other hand, if you go with the right expectation, you will not be disappointed. There is a “liberal cost” added to the daily rate. A liberal hostel, in Brazil or anywhere, is always more expensive than a traditional hostel with the same infrastructure.

See what the hostel offers.

Guestrooms at Club 16

The room we stayed in pleased upon arrival. It was simple and brand new. It did not smell old or dusty, which was a win. The room was spacious, the air conditioner worked well and the mattress, though small, was comfortable.

The bathroom sink wasn’t very big, unfortunately, but there is a good sink in the small kitchen, which we use to support the whole mess: from condoms to toothbrushes.

Unfortunately, the curtain, which let light in the morning, decided to fall during our stay. Room service did not bother to put it in the place. So it laid there on the floor for the remainder of our stay.

On the plus side, our room (“quartos” in Portuguese) was facing the pool, which ended up being the perfect location.

There are also cottages (“chalés” in Portuguese) available a little further out which you can see on the map:

 By day, all the action is in the pool, jacuzzi, and restaurant. The rooms are closer to swinger areas than the cottages.

We heard a guest complain that their cottage was smelling like “old” and that bed was not flat. We didn’t check for ourselves: so maybe it’s an exaggeration. But after our stay, I would always choose the guestrooms in front of the pool!

The restaurant of Club 16

Unfortunately, this was the weakness of the hostel in our opinion, it was the one aspect we really didn’t like. The dishes were far-fetched, time-consuming, expensive, and bland. And they missed our requests with a frequency that is hard to believe: four times in four days.

On the day we arrived, starving, we asked for crab cakes. Thirty minutes and they said they had no more. We traded for whiting. Sixty minutes more and “it” arrived… but it was beef with gorgonzola sauce. We asked to return it. Another forty minutes and voilà… whiting at last. For the two of us that were very hungry, those two hours felt like 10 days.

Fernando’s sympathy helped prevent us from getting angry. Even without watching the food drama closely, he sat at the table, chatted, ordered drinks, and was a great host.

Big heads that we are, we eat at the inn every day. We only went out once for lunch. We liked the fish broth and the seafood stew as they were both excellent.

The best thing would be if they assume to be a Brazilian hostel and leave aside the international dishes. We would love simple regional root food with a few dishes and juices. No need to reinvent the wheel: all you need is a good local cook and half a dozen options typical of the Northeast.

Breakfast

We do not care about variety: a few delicious items and we are already loving breakfast. Unfortunately, the hostel offers a varied breakfast, but no personality. Several cakes and none were yummy. Lots of bread, but none looked fresh from the oven. We certainly did not approve of these options.

However, we heard compliments from other guests. It’s possible that we demand too much and are too picky! We’d love to hear anyone’s thoughts that have gone before in the comments below!

At these swing parties, the beauty of Brazil shines.

The infrastructure of the hostel is well done, as it is a perfect size not to make guests roam too much. There are public rooms with glass windows, bars, poles for dancing and a competent DJ to join. The place was well planned out and works beyond the expectations that we had for a Brazilian small swinger hotel.

Every day that we were there, there was a party after 23:00. The parties on Saturday and Sunday were spectacular. The musicians hired were capable of lifting even the most tired of guests.

The boat ride lives up to a liberal hostel in Northeast Brazil

Pousada liberal no Brasil é com passeio de barco.

The highlight of the Carnival program is the boat trip, which lasts four hours.

We left right after 2:00 PM and sailed until 6:00 PM. It was an intense mix of music, animation, tequila, sparkling wine and lots of caipirinha, our national drink. Everyone was happy and dancing. The day was very pleasant, and we still had the good fortune of a thin rain to refresh near the end.

The boat ride was part of the Carnival schedule as well as the parties, and was not charged separately. A huge win!

Unfortunately, the club isn’t cheap…

Price of Carnival

Of course, the hostel is more expensive at Carnival. The four-night package in 2019 costed R$3,800 which had to be be purchased in advance, with no special discount.

How much does it cost, after all, to spend Carnival in a swinger hotel in Brazil?

  • The plane tickets from Rio or São Paulo cost R$2,250 for the couple.
  • The four-night stay cost R$3,800 for the couple.
  • The food and drinks cost, in the total of the trip, about R$800.
  • The rent of the car cost R$700, already considering gasoline.

Attending the Carnival there, for a couple, ends up costing around R$7,500 (or a bit less than US$2.000). Not a cheap Carnival, to the Brazilian standard, but it’s a lot cheaper than going to Paris for Les Chandelles or Holland on Fun4Two. We recommend it: it was worth it.

Usual price

According to the website, the daily rate of the simple chalet costs R$420 and that of the apartment in front of the pool costs R$450.

These are the rooms in front of the swimming pool, where swingers spend the whole day.

How to get to Club 16

There are two ways to land nearby: at the Presidente Castro Pinto International Airport, in Paraíba, or at Natal International Airport.

Do aeroporto de Natal à pousada liberal: como chegar

From Natal airport, it is just under two hours by car to reach Club 16 …

and from the airport near João Pessoa, the trip is also just under two hours.

For Natal or João Pessoa? Whatever, choose the cheapest flight.

The address of the hostel is Rua dos Marlins, 16, Tibau do Sul, RN, 59178-000. But Google Maps recognizes the hostel by name, without trouble.

We can not forget that the liberal hostel is in Brazil

The Militar Police of Rio Grande do Norte warns drivers to be careful.

Choose the route to Pipa very carefully. The GPS takes the route in area of ​​sugarcane and damaged bridges.

The Military Police issued an alert to the population and tourists who are moving to Praia da Pipa.

Drivers should avoid turning off the road that passes on the bridge over the Jacu River, extension of the RN-061.

The route is indicated as shorter by the GPS. However, it passes through an area of ​​sugar cane with a damaged bridge. The condition facilitates the action of criminals, according to the MP.

The recommendation is to go to Goianinha by the BR-101 and then access the RN-003. The route is more extensive, but safer.

Renting a car

The Natal airport has a local Hertz branch that is a great option. It takes only a few minutes to rent and return the car. The staff were polite and efficient, even on a holiday like Carnival.

To make sure, book through the site and check-in with the app when leaving the plane.

Who are we?

We’re a couple, he’s in his mid 40s and she’s in her mid 20s. We like to have fun out there. We were in Club 16 during Carnival of 2019.

We have no ties to Club 16, nor to any other swinger club or inn. This is the Club 16 site for more information. This blog exclusively reflects our opinion only.

Of course, prices and programming may change over time. If you find any mistake, let us know.
