We stayed at the Bernardus with two children. The rooms were spacious and the staff accomodating. It is a sleepy place for kids, but if yours don't need all the bells and whitles of a Disneyesque vacation this is great. Bring tennis racquets the courts are not staffed and they do not have demos. We found the morning conceige to be extremely helpful. She even search neighboring properties for us when we attempted to extend our stay but the Bernardus was booked. She eventually found us another room at the Bernardus. The conceige was also able to proved us with tickets to the Monteray Aquarium and detailed information on nearby hiking trails. Wickets is the place to eat with kids. The children's menu offers the usual and they make the best grilled cheese. All in, a great vacation close enough to Big Sur, Carmel, Point Lobos and Monteray but far enough away from the crowds.
