Asilomar is a well kept secret.............we at first couldnt make out what it was as there seems to be some groups of folk on courses there...........but its is super special place to stay if you want to try something slightly diferent and refreshing reasonable price wise . the breakfast is in a huge lodge and well so large you have everyhting on offer.............the surrounds are architecturally intersesting and it worth spending an hour on the free audia tour and self guide yourself around the buidlings and see the place come alive all those years ago when it was first built. We are on a world tour and this was just 4 days at Asilomar but it will remains special in my memory as the best place we stayed along the californian coast , no not for luxury, but good value and much better value than a normal motel and for the same price.............im enlgish and i cant say how sweet this place is, with sweet natured people, and away from the hsutle and bustle of the real world.

Early evening we opened the fizz we were given as a present in Mammoth earlier in the week and had a drink in the jacuzzi. Just perfect. Then we were hungry so we went to eat. BBQ!! What Santa Maria is famous for! I have to add, the steak was ...
... brought us to the top of a cliff side overlooking a white beach and translucent blue water with a waterfall falling eighty feet off the cliffside onto the sand. This is the classic Big Sur postcard shot where the amazing beach and sand are punctuated on one side by the majestic Pacific and on the other side by rising mountains. We made our way to a far more isolated area called Partington Cove, where a trail wound a half mile down the cliffside across a bridge and through a tunnel ...
... to my satisfaction and the tour bus arrived to pick up my 2 Argentian friends and me. Our guide was Walter - wasn't sure what I'd struck at first but as the tour went on I rather liked him - he had a wacky sense of humour - very gentle and laid back, he put on funny voices and added sound effects, broke into song at times and told corny jokes. First stop was Cannery Row in Monterey. I knew of it from the John Steinbeck novel (which all these years later I ...
Just passing by at the time I told this young gal she was in better shape than the Army
guys. She appreciated it but was too modest to admit it.
Dinner on Fisherman’s Wharf. It was excellent. I finally ordered ...
