We are a family of 2 adults, 2 children and a grandparent and we stayed at Lagoon Beach for 5 days. The children loved the swimming pool which isn't huge but still great fun, there is a fantastic children's playground on site with swings, tree houses and a huge trampoline. There are free canoes and life jackets for the children to go canoeing in the lagoon that the resort backs onto. There is a great little supermarket a two minute walk up the road for lovely fresh bread and cream buns! (and all the other basics too!) We used the islands buses for 100VTU (AUD$1) and they came past every couple of minutes and took us wherever we wanted to go include Cascade Waterfalls and the Secret Garden (which has snakes and geckos that you can hold if you like!) My 5 year old son LOVED it! The trip into town takes about 10 mins by bus and it's interesting to look at the surroundings as you go past. The town is very small and doesn't have a lot to offer so it's more of a relaxing type holiday. There is very little shopping to do I am sad to say! The resort itself is very nice and the 2 bedroom apartments are great with air-con and a kitchen and all the mod cons you could want. Nicely furnished but no bath - only shower. Annie at the on-site cafe made lovely dinners and lunches for the chilldren and fruit juice cocktails and my kids said hers were the best chicken nuggets in the world (and we've travelled a LOT!) They are home made from fresh chicken breast and they are excellent! Annie will bring the food to your apartment or you can eat in the dining area/hut which also has a pool table. Felix came and saw us each day to check we were ok and see if we wanted to participate in any activities on the island. He also sorted out the internet and other little things we needed help with. I would recommend this place to families - it's great value, in a good location and provides good activities for the children and there is food provided if you can't be bothered! PS You definitely need to take reef shoes as the bottom of the lagoons and most of the beaches are covered in huge starfish which the kids loved to pick up but it would hurt if you stood on one!
