Modern hotel with all the amenities of a first class hotel. Room was roomy and view was spectacular. Setting is very unique situated on cliffs above the Pacific . Climate was cool (nicely so). Great walking/running trails along the cliffs and great walking along the beach beneath the cliffs at low tide. Staff was extremely professional and friendly but service... More

If you want a relaxing weekend with the sound of waves or just want to go away for the weekend to play golf, this is the place for you. The decor is classic. This Ritz Carlon has the cushiest king beds that you just sink into and never want to get out of. For a guilty pleasure try their grilled... More

We booked our room under the Peace of Mind package--that it was! The rate was stay for three nights, pay for two and included the resort fee, valet fee, business center access, and kids club daily. It also included breakfast for two, but hotel was generous enough to comp breakfast for our 2 kids as well. Exceptional service all around!... More

The Ritz-Carlton was an awesome spot for a weekend get away. But be warned.. it is PRICEY! We quickly realized that your $500/night isn't going towards the food (which is good, but not impressive) or the amenities (the room was nice, but we've been in better for less) .. no. What you are paying for is the service (which in... More

On June 28th our party went to the Ritz @ Half Moon Bay to enjoy a snack and beverage. We where there around 1:30 in the afternoon. There was hardly anyone there, just a few occupied tables. After 15 minutes I went to the bar and asked the bartender if it was self services as several servers in uniform passed... More

This was our first time traveling through HMB. The town is quaint but does not offer much. The Ritz property is special in every way so I won't over do it with praise - it's 5 star for sure with incredible views. The negatives are small; parking fee of $45 seems steep for a place in the country, bed was... More

This hotel was just as beautiful as the pictures on the website. I had booked a courtyard room and found we were upgraded to an ocean view cottage when we arrived! There are activities for kids to do if they are older (ours were both under 4) but there is not much to do with little ones. We drove through... More

My husband and I stayed here in late May 2010. The ladies and gentlemen of the Ritz Carlton provided outstanding service as one would expect of this chain. The hotel is beautiful, in a great location. Paradise for golfers. After our infant went to sleep, we enjoyed wine and room service delivered out to our firepit. The views are fantastic.... More

I just returned from a two-night weekend at the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay. I had never been to a Ritz or Half Moon Bay before, but I wanted a spa weekend with my daughter (16). From the first moment of arrival, I felt pampered and never lifted a finger. The hotel is breathtaking and stands proudly at the edge (not... More
