We stayed 4 nights in a Forest Suite with our 3 children. Good location just outside the fog of Monterey & Carmel so you get bright sunny afternoons once the sun burns through. Ranch setting beautiful, overlooking picturesque valley. Food very good and they were very flexible with the children's meals. Toasting marshmallows over the fire in the evening a fun activity (complimentary). Would recommend a suite with a view. We just had trees in front of our balcony. The walls are very thin between the suites, if you get a noisy neighbour (young kids) you could hear them easily through the wall. Sleeping set up not great either. The bedroom (which was lovely and lodge-like) had 2 oversize singles and a rollaway bed for our 3 kids. This left me & my husband on the sofa bed in the sitting room which was really uncomfortable. The sitting room also has velux windows in the ceiling so gets light early - not suitable if your kids wake up with the light. We got another rollaway so that at least we didn't have to squeeze onto the sofa bed. You all share one bathroom.
Kids loved the kids pool, basketball court, tennis courts (you have to pay for these), hot tub etc at the Club. Good food there as well. Visit the Aquarium whilst you are there, Big Sur for amazing hiking and Carmel. We tried a boat to see whales but cold, foggy and no whales...
