We are travelling with two young children (3 and 5 yrs old) and we really liked this place. Although we slept in a nice bungalow, the riverside location (great sunset view), the opportunity to rent kayaks and bikes, the vast spread out shady site which includes a little kids playground and a restaurant, we thought the place possessed a bit of the relaxing and informal feel of a good campsite! It is a short walk away from the town market and the beautiful and deserted beach (opposite directions). When crossing the bridge to go in town, we had an impressive view of the endless stream of dozens of big-enough-jellyfish passing below. On the way to the beach, we met plenty of nice and curious local people engaging us in conversation. Staff was also friendly and helpful.
