We are a family of 4 with a 7 & 3 year old, and stayed here for 3 nights. (we had only planned for 2 nights, but our flight out was canceled due to weather and we were more than happy to stay the extra night). The staff including driver and kitchen staff were the friendliest we've ever met. Rooms were nice and spacious, very clean. You pre-order lunch and dinner, so it's always on time - beware, the portions are actually quite large! The fruit drinks are yummy, and we liked the self-service honor-system bar. The pool was sparkling, though we were surprised that it was salt water. Very short walk to the beach, though you can't swim in the beach. Make sure you bring shampoo, soap and mosquito repellent is provided. The tour to Rinca Island was great - the short trek is about 2.5 km on easy paths. Guaranteed to see komodo dragons, as there is always a few hanging around the ranger stations. You will also see crabs and monkeys, but no sign of the wild horses, boar, or water buffalos. We also took the half day trip to the Mirror Stone Cave with a slight detour to the tour guide's house for coffee, and the local market. Cave is worth going if you have extra time, but you don't need a tour guide as there is a local ranger that will accompany you through the cave anyway. We also stayed at Udayana Ecolodge on the way there and back, and same comments as a few others - it was smaller, mustier, staff not quite as friendly, and the lodge needs updating...
