Calling all local and visitors ... Romantics weekend, family getaway, or just for fun .... This is a must see place. Come for a quick visit, Sunday brunch, lunch, cocktails, or tea/coffe/hot cocoa ... Just come. Brunch is ok and is a little pricy, I prefer oysters and the burgers and fries are delish. The bar is fantastic, and very... More

My wife and I stayed at the Ritz for my 30ty birthday last October and wow, so perfect. We stayed on the Club Level and trust me, it is worth the extra money. Several meal servings per day and alcohol. The spa is amazing and the property is heavenly. We rode bicycles towards town one day, walked on the beach... More

One of the most stunning hotels that we have visited, and probably one of the worlds best finishing holes in golf (we walked it, but did not play). Great service, good food. And yes, it is extremely pricey. The one big "gotcha" has to be the ground floor cottages. No AC, No windows. Although it is usually 60 degrees at... More

My husband and I went to this hotel for a quick getaway. It was very nice and we enjoyed the view and the room. Our ocean view was over a golf course with ocean in the distance, which was ok. I would have preferred to have a direct ocean view and thought that's what we were getting since that is... More

The grounds of this resort are spectacular, being high on a cliff that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Our room was very nice. However, thank goodness we rented a car. Otherwise we would have been stuck eating at the very high priced restaurants within the resort and the food was not that great. Only valet parking which cost $47 a day.... More

The Ritz Carlton is stylish with good service and great room. It is fairly pricy, and the only reason you would stay here is most likely to be for the golf. Well, unfortunately the golf courses are below par ( pardon the punt) and if golf is the main interest there are way better options.

Love love love the relaxing ambiance and fantastic wine selection. Grab a glass of wine, your love, and watch the sunset. Then stay in, order room service and enjoy the plush suite (and soft bedding/ linens!) Truly Ritz quality!!!

We booked this for my wife's birthday and went for the Ritz Club level treatment, which is always memorable. This was, once again, an outstanding stay. We've enjoyed Ritz hospitality elsewhere and can't say enough about the Concierge level option. Half Moon Bay was right up there with our other favorites. We purposely avoided the Labor Day crowd that apparently... More

We stayed for one night (the first night of a week long trip). as a Marriott Gold member, we were upgraded to a room that overlooked the 18th green and the ocean. As soon as we checked in we realized that one night was a mistake, we should have planned on more nights. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary.... More

Wow, we were in heaven for 24 hours and hated to leave. The hotel is a hidden gem. A Grand hotel on the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean with very easy access to the beach. We checked in and immediately you realized you were some place special. We were there for our anniversary and wished we could've stayed longer. We... More
