I have never slept better in my life. I feel refreshed after 3 days. Food, service is perfect. The Spa is perfect. The wine, and food are excellent. Spend the money and stay here. The bike ride and hikes are priceless.

Visited this weekend for a business conference. The pictures of the resort do it justice as it is a spectacular piece of land with fantastic ocean views. Travel to the resort a short 25 min from SFO. Check in seamless and bell staff quite helpful. We were given a suite in the units separate from the resort by the pool... More

How fun to experience this gorgeous area and this historic hotel. The golf course is a challenge but so fun to chase the scenery as you play. Even on a misty, gray day, being able to walk the grounds and smell the ocean air is quite blissful.

I was here for a large conference, often a problem for hotels due to the number of people, but handled by the Ritz without any problem.

The location is beautiful. Right on the ocean. There is a nice path by their golf courses for walking. I would give the stay experience a 5 star rating but for the following. 1) The shower. I'm 6'3'' and the shower head comes out of the wall around 5'10''. So I needed to crouch to get underneath it. Water temperature... More

We did an overnighter at the Ritz. The front desk bumped our standard room to a jr. Suite....beautiful room. The birthday boy loved the golf, the hotel sent up some delicious chocolate covered strawberries for a birthday treat, all the staff said best wishes to my husband, and our dinner was delicious.
