We stayed for a weekend at the Tanjung Lesung, I have 3 kids (4, 11 and 16) and they all had a very good time. Be prepared for a long ride, even though its only 160 KM away from Jakarta the road takes you though small towns and it takes about 3 to 4 hours to get there.
Things we liked:
The gardens sorrounding the cottages are very pretty and well kept.
The cottages are very simple but kept reasonably clean.
The staff is very kind and helpful.
My kids loved the bicycles, the hotel has a great path along the beach to ride them. Also they have a playground with a tree house and a very friendly little monkey to pet.
From their beach club you can take some tours to other islands, we chose to go to Anak Krakatoa, and it was great. This is a very active volcano that is erupting every 10 minutes or so.
The food is not very good.
The pool is OK but nothing special.
We found it overpriced, they charged us about US$ 300 a night for a 4 person cottage and this is not a luxury resort like advertised, its a 3 star at the most.
The beach is terrible, very small and mostly rocks.
The bathrooms at the beach club were filthy.
In overall, we had fun and we found the Tanjung Lesung to be relaxing and a good place to take a break from the city, but there is a few things that they could improve.
