Lindeman is a Club Med resort so it is sold as an all inclusive package. That's the whole concept of Club Med. If you don't want this then I suggest you find somewhere else to stay. With 4 kids you might be better off with self-contained apartment accommodation on Hamilton Island. Long Island Resort is very family friendly and economical but includes all meals. Other Whitsunday family friendly resorts include Daydream Island and Hayman Island.

Hi

As Tez823 said, yes it can only be booked as an all inclusive package - so all your meals and drinks are included.

I would suggest, that if you are looking for something with self catering facilities, have a look at Hamilton Island (as you are already flying into the island). The resort offers a lot of 1-4 bedroom villa's with kitchens. Each complex of villa's have their own swimming pool - plus you can still go and use the main swimming pools down by the beach. Hamilton Island will allow you to self cater (there is a bakery and supermarket on the island along with being able to preorder your groceries from the mainland from Coles). You also have a choice of about 12 different restaurants. Included in these self contained villa's is a 4 seater golf buggy which is the main form of transport around the island. They also operate a shuttle bus too.

For the kids, there are lots of activities (some are free and some are not) from mini golf, go karts, quad bikes, sailing, bushwalking - just to name a few of the 40 activities. They also have a kids club (Clown Fish Club). If you want more info on Hamilton Island, have a look at the Hamilton Island forum and you will find links to the accommodation and general information about the island.

If you have a look at www.hamiltonisland.biz you can look up the different types of villa's.

For example, if you click on properties, then click on 3 bedroom it will show you 8 different properties. It gives you floor plans and photos aswell.
