The perfect place to escape to for a long weekend away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy a laid-back retreat in fine fashion and style. Great food at the resort restaurants. Great service by all the hotel staff. Great golf experience one afternoon as well. Don't forget to go into town and have lunch at Sam's Chowder House!

The vista is just stunning. Rain or shine, the rugged terrain, tamed by the grooming of a gold course is almost sublime. The pacific brings waves in hard and strong. The general areas to hang out, from lobby to the outdoor fire pit are great for groups or intimate conversations. The amenities are all in great shape and the staff... More

From the time we booked to the event and throughout dinner, the best experience I've ever had. Good was great so was the service. Dante was out server and one other lady (forgot her name) she assisted. Definitely will be back, maybe for the brunch that we heard so much about.

Perfectly located with two fantastic golf courses--one links and one traditional. The hotel itself is striking with views that you never want to leave. My favorite thing was sitting by the fire pit while the fog rolled in....it's cool enough that you need a jacket but in realty that's just what you want. You can never go wrong choosing this... More

The views from this hotel are, of course, amazing. Service was friendly as well. The thing is, with a Ritz, you expect more. You don't expect check in time to be enforced to the minute. We arrived at 3PM, were told check in was at 4PM, and were not given our keys until after 4PM. We requested a late check... More

I have to admit this is a beautiful place, Half Moon Bay, California. But I am stumped as to why anyone would build a hotel here. The weather, well to be frank - it sucks. Everyday was overcast and wet and foggy if not rainy. The hotel proper is nice, the rooms every bit what you might expect from the... More

We spent two nights at the Ritz in Half Moon Bay. Pros: *Outstanding service. So attentive it borders on fawning. But nonetheless it was nice. *The grounds and the hotel are lovely. It is on the cliffs of Half Moon Bay and so there are stunning views. While on my walk along the cliffs overlooking the ocean, I saw a... More

This was my second visit to the Ritz Carlton at Half Moon Bay. The view is positively breathtaking. The scalloped cliffs and the breaking waves are the best stress reliever ever. The hotel is beautiful with a golf course. Just walking along the beach was a fabulous way to start my day before attending day long meetings. The service was... More

We spent one night and it was beautiful. My wife had trouble sleeping because there was a hum in our room that engineering could not fix but they were very accommodating and would have moved us but it was 3 am and I didn't want to move. The outside patio area is beautiful and while service out there is iffy... More

A fantastic hotel, amongst the best I’ve stayed in. Wonderful staff (the waiting staff were excellent especially Beyoncé – I think that’s correct - who served a large group in the Library. I thought she was as good as it gets for customer delight). Room was great, nice touches and great grounds. Love to return next time I’m in the... More
