We stayed 7 nights at the Anda Lanta resort, with a family of four (9 year-old and 5 year-old). We booked the family cottage (adjoining rooms) which I would thoroughly recommend. It's set back from the beach and therefore has more privacy.
We chose the resort for its location. It's at the bottom of the island, near the National Park, and therefore quiet. None of the dodgy tourist bars and restaurants. Instead, a few great beach shacks that offer barbecues. To get around the island and try other restaurants, we hired vespas from the hotel.
The accommodation was good. Not luxury but clean and well thought through. Reception staff were friendly but not very clued up on information and recommendations.
The food was OK. Nothing special. Breakfast was included. We only ate once at the hotel and it was OK but overpriced considering other options on the beach. We would recommend the Take It Easy bar, down the beach, which had great barbecues with fresh fish, cheap cocktails, incredibly friendly staff. Their tourist information is far better than what the Anda Lanta came up with.
I said the resort was great for families and that's true. It's both an upside and a downside. There were lots of children when we were there and the pool looked like a creche most days. Families tended to hog the sunbeds for the whole day because that was the best place to get shade. Not a big problem for us as we preferred the beach anyway.
The beach is rocky. Again, upside and downside there. Good for playing in rock pool but not good for little feet when getting into the water.
