We have two kids aged 3 and 7. Stayed at Amangati in one of their houses- book it direct through hotel not agent and for $100AUD per day including breakfast we had a small cottage, fridge. No kitchen but the manager( lovely lady from Bali said I could use kitchen anytime to cook for kids) that's coz we usually bring fave Ozzie breakfast cereals, bit of instant mash and couscous in case kids get sick of indo food.
Pool at Amangati fine for kids, some other guests seemed to complain that it got extra chlorine and therefore closed a few hours after busy with locals on weekends.
Nice fully fenced ground with lots of well kept lawn for kids to play. Best restaurant was Tutis, recently opened, kids begged to return for the food.
Amangati restaurant useful as they served anything off the menu in restaurant as room service to our lounge room( awesome to sit in your own place if kids have been out all day and want aircon and not fit for restaurant for dinner ) some waves to suit little people learning to surf as well.
Lots of waves for Dad, very relaxing for Mum. Definately a winner family holiday if you can make you own fun beyond surfing.
Stayed August 2015, traveled with family
