The hotel is on the beach of Kamari. However, this beach is very long.
The hotel is 2.5 km from Kamari village and the nice, full-of-tavernas-and-shops part of Kamari beach. With 2 small kids you can't walk to Kamari village; I also expect it to be difficult if there are 30 degrees (C) outside; a taxi was about 6-7 euro. There are tavernas where you can eat very close to the hotel.
I was there off-season, end of May. There were not too many airplanes and even when there were the noise was not that bad. The view from the pool is magnificent. You can see the mountain; turn 180 degrees and see the Sea with Anafi island in the distance. The pool is excellent; I would dare to say that it is not a 50m pool but is more than 25 anyway and it is enough for a vacation :); besides, they have a kid's pool with a kiddies zone and my kids loved those.
The room was very clean and was kept clean for the whole vacation, despite us leaving our stuff all around the room. They were very prompt whenever we had a request. They were very nice to give us a room upgrade at the same price as the basic. But, they ran out of cars on a cloudy day and the company that they worked with gave us an incredible high price; we didn't have time to shop around so we had to take it; so if you want to rent, book from the hotel before hand.
The other thing I could say I was not happy with was the ride to the airport; our plane was due to take off at 6:45 am; they told us that we have to call a taxi; they actually called for us the night before; the taxi was about 15-20 minutes late; it charged us 9 euros (the airport is 1.5 km away); I wouldn't care for a 9 euro good-bye ride but the 15 minutes delay was a lot; I didn't understand why they did not use the hotel van.
The location in the middle of the island makes it very convenient if you want to visit the island (and I recommend you do this). Would I go there again if in Santorini? I would, but I would stay longer :)
