Spent great week with family (2 young children) at Hawaii Club Bali. 3 days at or around the resort, 4 days taking resort organized excursions (Ujung Kulon, Kratatao, Baduy village, and nearby rain forest waterfall). Excusions were perfectly organized - There were 4 family members and 4 staff members for every trip, so any time my wife and I wanted to snorkel or hike, staff members were there to safely watch kids while they swam or played. Especially enjoyed the boat trips to Ujung Kulon and Krakatoa, as well as swimming in the pool beneath the waterfall during the rain forest hike.
Hotel itself has fun waterpark for the kids. We're visiting during low season and virtually no other guests in the hotel, but staff kindly turn on water slides and kids water playground whenever our kids want to go to the pool. Also, although hotel beach is small, it has great tidal pools where kids can touch anemones, pick up crabs, and find interesting seashells.
Enjoyed the hotel restaurant and found the hotel staff to always be extremely kind and accommodating. Kids enjoyed the onsite playroom and occasional Disney movies nights.
Any guest staying here needs to understand that this is a poorer, less developed region of Indonesia. It will take a long 4 hours drive to get to the resort from Jakarta, hot water will occasionally not come on (and be rust colored when it does), the restaurant will often be out of multiple menu options, the surrounding villages are quite poor and non-hotel beaches will be covered in trash. As expected for any less developed part of Asia, Africa, or India. Don't be expecting 5-star treatment that one would find in KL or Singapore or Shanghai. But, anyone with the right set of expectations will find the resort and surrounding activities to be very interesting, lots of fun, and great for families.
