          Hi - I am torn between this hotel and White Rocks for our family of four - 2 kids - 12 and 8. Some say the best beaches are near White Rocks - also wondered what there is to do in the evening as we are used to beach bars. Is the hotel children friendly with inflatables in the pool etc? Our room would be shared with the kids so wondered if cramped?
