Important tip... This resort is HUGE. You could be at the same resort as a friend and be miles apart. If you are coming together, make sure you ask the resort to be placed together. If you want to be near the pool, ask to be put near the pool.
We rented 3 condos for a family reunion. The rooms easily sleep 8 with the lock off. Lock-offs sleep 4. The condo is spacious, 2 nice patio areas off the bedroom and living room. Deep bathtubs in lockoff, jacuzzi tub in main bath. Nice layout that allows for everyone's privacy with main bed off the living room on one side and lockoff on the other side. Large enough kitchen to really cook, though ours was missing a lot of the items it was supposed to have. The lockoff has a mini-fridge, microwave and little sink (and of course coffee maker). It comes with dishes for 2, but sleeps 4 so you'll have to request additional items (like bowls for cereal) if you plan to do simple meals there. It would be fine for cereal and sandwiches and munchies with kids.
When we called, they did deliver the missing items fairly quickly. We also had to request bedding for the sofa bed, it wasn't in the room. There are BBQs if you want to grill out.
Lots to do nearby, and grocery stores (a Ralphs and a Whole Foods) very close so you can easily stock up. You will need a rental though, it isn't walking distance. The pool area was nice, kids had fun swimming. You can check out basketballs and games and there are activities (not free) for kids to do like crafts and ice cream sundaes.
