We stayed for a week with 2 kids under 5 years old.
We stayed in a self catering unit which was great. The view is gorgeous and the facilities are extensive including 2 lovely swimming pools with kids sections, gym, canoes, fishing, squash, hikes, horses, etc . It rained the whole week which spoiled some of the outdoor opportunities. Nevertheless we had great fun catching frogs, going horse riding, going on the boat ride, playing games in the games room and checking out local attractions. The hotel also had a free lending library, and helpful staff service.
One criticism was the lack of windows. There are only sliding doors which we could not leav open due to the monkeys and the rain. There are aircon units but the room still got a bit stuffy.
