We stayed at "Pontal de Ocapora" in Feb 2009 for 3 weeks with small children. The location is a very beautiful: green gardens surround the bungalows - from a near area of natural forest small monkeys visit the hotel area. There most important things: world class beach, different very clean pools and very helpful staffs (although: almost nobody speaks English :-( If you don't speak Portuguese: take a dictinary with you at least! Food (served buffet style) is very good at all: international and local food, fresh fruits, drinks - evrything very good! OK, after 2 weeks the choice was repeating but it seemed that we are the only ones who stayed that long... Just 2 min north of the hotel beach you find "natural swimming pools" at the beach (visit at low tide!) - beautiful for beginners to snorkel and for children to swim. Take care: sea urchins and sometimes Portuguese man of war. Near that place a mobil "beach restaurant" offers fresh food: if you buy a meal (fresh fish, lobster...) you get table, chairs and parasol for free :-)
You can do some excursions to Porto de Galinhas (buggy driving, mangroves at an estuary of a small river, more natural swimming pools, if you need to shop Porto de Galinhas is good choice). We hired an English speaking driver who showed us places that are not so crowded as the beach area is: giant cataracts 2 hours drive from the hotel, sugar cane plantations and small distillery. Negative: former natural covering of vegetation in that area is almost completely removed for sugar cane.
The hotel offers free beach towels and free WiFi (in public areas)
