Didn't use the kids club - had a poke around but it tended to be slightly older kids 8+. There is a purpose built 'classromm' type place, with a small playground. This kids there really seemed to be having a good time.
The beach right by the hotel is fine for kids, not too deep too quickly, although there are a lot of flat rocks (smooth not jagged) that sit just below the water line, so sometimes there's a bit of a large step for teh unaccompanied! (but not dangerously - just a bit funny when your kids suddenly finds themselves up to their waist when it was around their ankles!)
Food was generally very good - but if your kids are a bit fissy you might find it's chips/pizza every day, but as it was their holiday I pretty much let them east what they wanted anyway. They did experiment though - a bit!
we didn't do any trips. I have heard that the volcano trip is a real experience but can be quite a trek - especially if they are asleep on the way back.
