After viewing three more, we decided that the best of what we’ve seen so far, and most suitable for the kids, was Pasir Panjang Hotel. It had hot water shower and the all important tiny bit of beach.
It sounds like home too, as there is a place in Singapore called Pasir Panjang. Pasir means Sand/Beach, and Panjang means Long. So Pasir Panjang means Long Beach - which is quite funny when you see the short beach at Pasir Panjang Hotel.
Perhaps there are better places out there that we did not get a chance to look at, but we had left the kids on their own for over half an hour. We got back to Bagoes Cafe, the kids were fine, except that some were wet and damp. They had been playing in the rain under the porch of Bagoes Café.

We walked over to Pasir Panjang Hotel. Room rate then was Rp230,000/night (S$30.70), plus Rp70,000 (S$9.30) for an extra bed (mattress).
