The garden with pools, trees, hammocks is nicely done.

The beach at low tide is great for kids to swim and play and there some really cool tide pools that my daughter loves to hang out in and see all sorts of fish. At high tide the waves come in and that's when people surf so it can be a little more difficult for children. Playa Grande breaks in several different locations so if you are a beginner you can simply choose a more mellow spot away from the main break. If you are looking for surf lessons you should contact Frijoles Locos as they have the best instructors and they are all certified.
Hope that helps!
