5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Took my daughter and grandkids who were visiting from New York. We had two beautiful nights. This property is simply the best when it comes to decor, service, ambiance, and certainly the human experience. The people who work here seem to have a commitment to each and every guest ensuring the experience is one-of-a-kind. The setting could not be more... More

We had an exquisite visit. The attention to detail is unbelievable. After being greeted at check-in, a staff member knew our name and details for the remainder of our stay. All the staff from the servers in the restaurant to the staff at the golf course provided truly personal service. The rooms were beautiful with luxurious towels, sheets and bath... More

We took our family for a long weekend and visit to Stanford. The views are amazing and the golf course is stunning. I was able to sit along the ocean and watch the golfers come in to the 9th hole. We have visited many Ritz Carlton locations and this one ranks up there for us. This is a great place... More

We came here for business first I want to start with the good the rooms were remodeled. The thing I did not like is that we asked for blankets near the fire pits and they said really rudely we do not have any more. But the view was the best and the hotel service only thing is the ocean terrace... More

What a disappointment. Nice enough room with NO minibar. 2 bath towels for 4 guests. 1 bar of soap needing to be shared between bath tub, shower and as hand soap. Room service did not get out order right and the food was marginal at best. The vibe in the hotel was a bit uptight and did not offer us... More

After spending a week in Napa, we spent a wonderful weekend at this seaside resort. Golf, gourmet food, attentive service, and California wine are specialties of the resort. And the view...just beautiful! The fire pits are a nice touch on a cool evening!

The setting is spectacular, we had a room with full ocean view and spent two very nice days at the Ritz. Nevertheless it was not a 5 Star experience for us... It his somehow hard to explain, but most likely it was the missing "extra touch" that left us unconvinced. As other places in this category charges are high. However,... More

Although the hotel shares an entrance with a mobile home park and a RV Camp, it is tucked away on the water front with a wonderful golf course. Room was AMAZING! I don't use that word often either. Choose a room that faces the ocean. Dinner room was wonderful, but small and very expensive.

Expensive, stunning views, excellent food, and great service. What you come to expect from the Ritz Carlton and they deliver. Low key, laid back, and it's off the beaten path. When the sun is shing it's hard to beat this place.p
