I had a massage today and Keisha my therapist modified my position for maximum comfort. I have cancer which caused my spleen to enlarge- so often I am very uncomfortable during a massage. Her pressure was a perfect balance of relaxing and theripudic. The prices are very fair- friends had other services in the hair and nail salon and also... More

This hotel is near and dear to our hearts... We got married here and continue to come back for special occasions or just because. Sometimes my husband and I just take the drive but other times, the entire family comes along. We've enjoyed several stays in their lush suites and grabbed a bite to eat in the on site restaurant....

I live in Sacramento where the temp is expected to be 106 degrees for the next few days. So I am in Half Moon Bay at the Oceana hotel and spa where the temperature outside is 61 degrees. The hotel is beautiful rooms are suites and overlook the harbor.A little pricey but worth it.

We stayed in a "Grand Oceano Villa" for an extended-stay business trip, and it was perfect! Sometimes living out of hotels for work and eating out every night gets old. So it was a real treat to have a room that was like a beach condo. It made our stay feel like a mini vacation. Ours was a loft studio,... More

The hotel itself is absolutely stunning. The moment you walk into the lobby, you understand that you're in a luxury hotel. The rooms themselves are gorgeous, and smell beautiful (an odd thing to mention, but worth noting). Where it falls short is in the little things that one expects from luxury hotel service, as well as in details of hotel... More

We were there for a wedding. What a perfect venue for a wedding! It's indoor/outdoor. We had cocktails outside with warm weather. The new building for weddings is perfect. The food and service was excellent. We stayed there one night. The rooms are lovely. I loved the sitting area with a fireplace and balcony overlooking the sea. I will definitely... More

Here for a wedding and two night stay. Beautiful rooms whether in the main hotel or the smaller building. The only issue with the smaller building is the noise. Thin walls so noise can be heard from adjoining rooms. Also could use a microwave in the rooms. Besides that, main areas are gorgeous and the banquet rooms perfect. Side note:... More

I always stay at the Oceano when I need a break. I visit friends about 4 times a year. This location is great, great Restaurants at the Harbor and you can walk everywhere. The rooms are spacious and clean, and there are robes in the rooms. So nice to sit on balcony or patio with coffee in the morning

Beautiful accommodations with excellent customer service! The only downside: sleep quality. A nearby foghorn sounds off all night long. Plus, there is a blinking smoke alarm right above the bed that is really disruptive and annoying (along with several other little lights in the room). They do offer earplugs and sleep mask (however those won't work for everyone). Also, we... More
