The hotel was a little old and in need of some refurb but otherwise clean and adequate. We booked two adjoining rooms which were billed as a "family suite" so our daughters were next door to us and our baby was in our room. We had a gorgeous view of the beach from our rooms - the beach was great, the children absolutely loved it. It was pretty clean as PD beaches go.
The standard of service was a bit erratic but the staff were really sweet and kind, and helped make up for any deficiencies with amenities and food. I'd say the food was pretty average but it didn't matter as there are so many restaurants around. We ate out, mostly.
The hotel had a nice pool for guests with a little mini pool for children fronts the hotel - with views of the beach. Also billed were kids play area for children, a pool bar, a lounge bar and a pool playing area. These did not seem to be in much use as people preferred the swimming pool or the beach.
Just a stroll along the beach was the Api Api cafe/restaurant right on the beach itself offering multi cuisine - something for everyone. I thought the food quite pricey but good. Fish is definitely the food to have, gorgeous and really fresh. Do go for whole fish - really lovely.
All in all, I'd say a nice hotel to stay in with children and quite friendly staff, a bit pricey for what is offered; and as previously mentioned, the standard of service is a little under par sometimes. But because we were only using the hotel as a base, we didn't really mind.
