Paradise
We booked this location for 2 x nights in Oct as a group of 7. 2 x grand parents, 2 x adults, and 3 kids (Ages 8, 7 and 5). We opted for 3 seperate rooms next to each other and it could not have been a better scenario although I am aware that there is a family type room. The rooms are very adequate and although no aircons were in place, the temperature with the sea breeze was great (our kids used the blankets even). The lodge is low key and immediately relaxing. It is a small-ish resort, at the time filled mainly with couples however our kids were never bored. Between kayaks, swimming in the pool and exploring the rock pools. We did horse riding with Santo Horse Adventures one morning which is highly recommended. The highlight of the property was the incredible food.

Nice location, and nice facilities. However, as you're stranded there for the most part you often need to eat their food. The first meal we had was atrocious, completely stale bun on a burger (like a brick), and a pasta that tasted like they accidentally dropped the whole salt shaker in. However, the meals improved after that, so not sure if they just had someone extremely under-qualified that day.
