We stayed at The Flying Crocodile over New Year 2012/13 with our 2.5yr old daughter.
We had a self catering room - Chagall. The website lacks in pictures so you're not entirely sure what you're getting. Our room was very nice though didn't have the 'fully equipped' kitchen that is mentioned on the site. We had to ask for a cheese grater and sieve and the rest of the kit was in need of updating. We also had one of the staff and her partner sleeping upstairs and unfortunately their movements (even though they tried to tip toe) were incredible loud down below in our section of the lodge. Aside of that all was well and we were in prime position for a morning dip in the pool. The gardens are wonderful, breakfast is good and whole location very open and natural. Petra and Andrea are very friendly and helpful. Andrea is also an excellent cook. I enjoyed her delicious red snapper! It's a location that would require a car especially for exploring the surrounding area filled with beautiful, wild beaches. The local beach is a short 15min walk and easily accessible and fine for children as there is an estuary running down into the ocean where they can paddle.
