Loved staying here at the Ritz Carlton - they made our wedding anniversary and wife's birthday celebration really special. First Rafael, the front desk person gave me a great package on the phone before booking the place. Tania, the Guest relationships coordinator, then followed up closer to the stay to make it even better! She was phenomenal - recognizing the... More

I was fortunate enough to attend a conference at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon and didn't want to leave. From my first step onto the property to my last, I felt like all of my needs would be met without hesitation. Every staff member made me feel welcome, answered my questions, and went above and beyond the call of duty.... More

Ritz Carlton may cost more than many other hotels, but the saying "you get what you pay for" is applicable here! After being greeted curb-side, assisted with luggage, and quickly directed to the from desk, I was offered a wine tasting at the counter during check in and the experience began. The room was gorgeous, with a clear view of... More

Spent 3 nights here from the minute you get out of your car till you get back in to leave you get impeccable service ! The rooms are well appointed with what you need, robes, slippers, toiletries , mini refrigerator etc . If you need something I'm pretty sure the service staff can get it for you. Even though it...

There are very few California coastline locations that rival this, at least the ones I've had the luck to enjoy....Big Sur, Laguna, Santa Barbara, even the Monterey Peninsula area...very pricey even for the Ritz brand...along the lines of Bachelor Gulch in the Beaver Creek CO Rockies, but there too it's all about the location...rooms were very nice, if smallish (@450...

This will go down as one of the top hotels we have ever stayed. Besides have a phenomenal view from our room and the fire pit on the patio the service was impeccable. From the time we arrived until we left the service was over the top and everyone we encountered at the hotel was very helpful and friendly.

We could not ask for such outstanding service. From a glass of wine awaiting at arrival to offering a ride to the pool "just so you don't have to walk ". Will hold a special place in my Heart for the hotel and hotel staff

This hotel is first class from its exceptional location to its beautiful design. The staff are the nicest I have ever encountered at a hotel/resort. The assorted fire pits throughout the outside seating areas were a very warm (literrly) design feature that were well utilized by all the guests, we even had a private fire pit outside our room.

This was our first time having Thanksgiving brunch at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay. What a great surprise to have such a wonderful experience. The quality was amazing, fresh, excellent selection and just quality, quality, quality. There aren't many places that serve everything with such care. Especially at a holiday buffet brunch. I would highly recommend going there... More
