Pelican Hill vs Montage with kids - December 2017

Looking to spend Dec 13-22 in either Newport or Laguna - Pelican Hill or Montage, with my husband and two sons - ages 3 & 6. Our main focus is a great kids club and nice hotel. Does anyone know if these kids clubs will be good at that time, or are the resorts quiet before xmas? Also open to staying anywhere else that better suits our needs in LA - OC, etc... Thanks so much!!!

Montage is an amazing place to stay! We stay the first week in December and have had minimal crowds there. Montage is especially beautiful when decorated for Christmas. 🏖

I would double check to see if the kids clubs are open. Often they are only for summer.

Pelican Hill would be my choice for a better location than the Montage.

My pick would be Pelican Hill too. You'll have far more space. And in the winter you won't be swimming in the ocean anyway.
