We spent about 2 weeks there during christmas period with our 4 kids (11, 9, 3 & 3) and we all had a wonderful time. Not the best spot at that time of the year if you are looking for sun-bathing or enjoying the pool, but certainly worth it if you are looking for a place to relax and have all family enjoying it. Entire staff proved very welcoming and thoughtful.
Kids all experienced and approved the mini-club and petit-club. Quite a number of activities are available (though a few are closed during winter period), and I particularly enjoyed the water sports: not that they should be given any credit for the very good wind we experienced, but the spot is really good for windsurfing with good equipment readilly available and cheerful staff always on the move to make sure you have a great time... and looking after your safety, to what they proved very efficient. Diving was not possible (winter period) but snorkeling is still a great experience just by the beach.
We would maybe regret the lack of japanese "atmosphere" (you don't feel like you are in Japan, which could be disappointing for looking for some taste of it) or the average condition of our rooms, clean and well maintained but a bit dated.
Overall, we all had a great time and we certainly look forward to going back.
