We spent the night of Thanksgiving at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay, which is one of our favorite hotels. We live just about an hour away but love to stay at this hotel because it truly feels like you have disconnected from the world at this amazing place. The hotel facilities and service are top-notch, but it is the setting that can't be beat. The hotel sits on some amazing California coastline and the hotel truly fits in with and blends with surroundings. There is a coastal trail that is one of my favorite walks in the world, and also beach access. There are two large fire pits at the back of the hotel fronting the ocean with plentiful adirondack chairs to just sit back, chill and enjoy the environment. The hotel sells very yummy smores kits for evenings around the fire pits and on weekend evenings offers a hot chocolate bar. There is also an outdoor bar area with smaller fire pits where we enjoyed a relaxing afternoon drink. I did not take in the spa this trip but have had some amazing facials there in the past. Activity-wise, there are two great golf courses, an indoor pool facility, bikes available for use, tennis, etc. Our room in the Fairway cottages was quite roomy, even for a family of 4, with a gas-burning fireplace in the room and a large bathroom. We ate lunch at the Conservatory Lounge and breakfast at Navio, and both meals were top-notch. I can't recommend this hotel enough.
