Firstly I just want to say the actual rooms and swimming pool were far better than we expected, staff were hit and miss with some being really attentive / polite and others in need of training.
Breakfast is hit and miss, some days a good...More
I normally go out of my way to try new places and this is the only hotel I have ever deliberately stayed in twice. For me this is the perfect little find, the rooms are so pretty with little thatched roofs, the little pool is...More
This is fairly small hotel with all the rooms being in small blocks in the gardens and there is one small pool there. There is no organised entertainment or shows in the evenings so it is a quite hotel and I would not recommend it...More

I don't have children myself but we saw a fair few children there. If you are looking for all round childrens entertainment then no, its not provided. There's no where you could leave your children while you went off. The sea is not quite rough, you'd only want them splashing around in the shallows under close supervision. The pool looked quite safe.
I think it depends what sort of holiday you want. I know I would have LOVED it as a child and would not have been bored and the children I saw playing with their parents in the pool and on the beach did not look bored. The local people are very child friendly.
