Spent 1 week there, from the 18th Aug 2012 to the 25th Aug 2012. We stayed on a self-catering basis. The staff in general were polite and courteous. The apartment was quite spacious but lacked a few essentials. There was no toaster, no hairdryers, no easily accessible internet, free or otherwise, no mosquito nets (a must in the area).
There are no complimentary towels to use poolside or at the beach. You will be charged a daily rate which is virtually as much as if you purchased your own towels. There is nothing in the way of entertainment for children or indeed adults.
There is a small pool which is ok. There is a poolside bar and restaurant which we did not use (self-catering) so I can't comment on the standard. We did have an issue with the poolside bar manageress who told us that we weren't allowed to bring our own drinks poolside. This I found unacceptable as we paid to stay at a resort on a self-catering basis. What was particularly infuriating was when we made some popcorn for the kids (6&4) and were told that they can't have the popcorn poolside!
The resort is quite a distance from the beach so you have a lenghty walk. The beach is ok and the water, although not the clearest or cleanest, is ok. The town centre is some distance away and you will need a car or use taxis or public transport.
It is highly unlikely that we would stay at this resort again. I can't in good conscience recommend this resort, which purports to be 4/5 star, to anyone. Until standards are improved, if you want to visit Porto Seguro in Brazil, avoid Xurupita.
