“Save your Money”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Many of the trees were decayed, the houses don't impress. Great views of the Pacific but you can get those along PCH without paying for it.

“You dont have to golf to enjoy this!”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

You could spend a couple of days alone just taking in the sights! The color of the water is spectacular, undescribable- you have to see it to understand. The best writers in the world, past and present, have a hard time describing the beauty of the area- justifiably so!

“You must do this !!!!!!”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

This is a must if you go to Monterey / Carmel

- You can only do drive in car - no motorcycles allowed
- Drive it both ways
- Stop at Spanish bay golf course and watch the Piper close the course with drinks and food - your entrance charge to 17 mile drive is credited to your food and drink bill
- stop at Pebble Beach Golf club and have your picture taken by the 18th Green
