The resort is located on a private beach, in sharp contrast with other Samet beaches that can be quite crowded. The main beach on the east is gorgeous, with white sand and very clear water. There is not a real beach on the west, it is more a pier from which you can snorkel (don't expect much though, no comparisons with snorkeling you can have on coral reefs, you just see the few fish that are fed by the resort from the pier).
The villas have not been designed for families, there is no privacy if you travel with children as the villas have only one room; taking 2 villas is impractical with young children as villas are totally isolated from each other (great for couples!); add to that the fact that families do not seem to be welcome in the resort (even if personnel are very nice with young children) as price asked to add a bed is simply exorbitant, children don't get the snacks distributed during the day (such as afternoon tea, even if they have to pay for the room and breakfast) and this lead to the comment in title that it is not a children friendly.
It is a great place to wind down, I would not spend more than 3-4 days as would get pretty bored.
