We absolutely loved this place and would recommend it to anyone with kids.
It's not directly on the beach, but it takes five minutes to walk on a sandy path to a very idyllic place away from big hotels. However, if you want, you can also get a bite to eat and a drink at the little beach bar at the end of the path.
The cottage we had, Colobus, was absolutely out of a dream vacation. It was perfectly breezy, with two terraces on the first floor on which you can relax in the evenings. The only problem with the hammock was that you can easily fall asleep into it. During the day a family of monkeys enjoyed playing in it for hours!
The big swimming pool is nice addition when you had enough of the breezy beach. When we were there (December 2011) they were building a swimming pool right in front of the cottage - maybe it's ready already.
The staff is super nice, and always ready to help - they found us a car to rent, arranged for the laundry, arranged for a taxi...
I can't say enough good things about Paolo, who we bothered in Italy in the evenings to arrange for our reservation! In the end he saved our New Year's vacation!
The only thing I can suggest is to have bicycles for rent. Nothing fancy... just some plain bicycles that you can take for a ride!
