Nestled only 45 minutes south of SFO, RC-HMB is magical! Beautiful property and coastline views. Amazing golf. This resort has it all! The staff is very accommodating. The food is wonderful (at all outlets - including room service). The property is relaxing and elegant. The rooms are nicely appointed...especially the Fire Pit Rooms. We were in Room 125 and were...

I highly recommend this hotel. Staff is friendly, very professional, and nice. Food at the hotel and by the golf shop is excellent. Room service is perfect. We had some problems with the wi-fi, but the Hotel staff was doing everything they could to get it back up and running, and they did! It is all about how you handle... More

This review mostly pertains to the dog friendliness of the hotel. According to the Bay Woof Newsletter, this hotel is the #1 most dog-friendly luxury hotel in Northern California. We stayed here over the weekend in October with our dog and booked the "Posh Pooch Package". Pros: Beautiful grounds. Hotel is aging but the views are spectacular. Trails leading to... More

My husband and I stayed 2 wonderful nights at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay and loved every minute of it! We have visited several Ritz Carlton hotels in the U.S. and all have been great experiences, however, this may surpass them all. The property is beautiful with a fantastic setting, overlooking the ocean and golf course on 2 sides.... More

One of the best places I have ever stayed. Amazing rooms, view was breathtaking. Service impeccable. Golf course on site was wonderful and service was great. From the valet to the check in, throughout all the restaurants everyone was just right there for your needs. The valet asked if I wanted to send my clubs directly to the golf course... More

The setting is beautiful. Service to the cottage was slow. Also there was a bag of garbage that stayed outside our room for a full day. A light bulb was out and the basin couldn't hold water. For the price, the attention to detail could have been better.

I have passed by this hotel on my way to Pebble Beach for years and never stopped to stay. Big mistake! I was missing what I believe to be one of, if not the best coastal resort in Calif. The Ritz is easy to overlook as it sits on the real Calif. coast between SF and Monterey/Carmel. The hotel sits... More

This hotel is located close to the ocean and has wonderful views of the breaking waves from most of the rooms. When booking a reservation, book a room on the first floor if you want a gas fire pit to enjoy in the evenings or a room at the third floor or above for the views. Many of the rooms... More

Rooms were nice, beds comfortable and service (people) great. Even the weather could not have been better. The restaurants were outstanding...Sunday brunch was out of this world but... More

Beautiful property, but probably wasted on people that don't golf. There are two top-notch 18 hole courses here. The restaurant Nava is superb. Try the Sunday brunch; it is excellent. The spa is Superb. Worth it even just for the dsy. The gym is also really nice: spotless, everything well-maintained. The rooms are also very well maintained, everything in working... More
