Yet another unbelievably relaxing trip to the Ritz with the most attentive staff of any hotel I've ever visited. They have undergone a renovation since the last time we stayed a few years ago and the results are stunning. Just beautiful shades of blue, brown and gray throughout that exude relaxation. In the club room, Monica, Violeta, & Maria are... More

Perfect weekend in a lovely setting on the coast. The weather was perfect and the golf was killer. The rooms are exactly what you should expect from a Ritz Carlton. The staff are well trained and know how to deliver customer service!

Stayed during Labor Day weekend and it was a good stay with a few issues. When we arrived they greet you with a glass of wine and cookies. That is very nice and the check in was fast and we were escorted to our room by a front desk person. The grounds are very nice and well maintained. It is... More

We visited Half Moon Bay for our 30th wedding anniversary in September 2015. The Ritz in Half Moon Bay, CA is magical. We received excellent service and were treated like royalty! The views overlook a cliff which reminds me of Ireland. There is also a beautiful view of the golf course - when the course closes, a gentleman comes out... More

Overall, I think this is a very special place. This was our second time at the property. Our one bedroom suite had a great view and was a great size and was nicely decorated. However, it was a bit too close to the elevator and we could hear too much noise from it. A few disappointments.... We wanted to have... More

While the room prices were a little bit out of our price range, we did stop by for drinks at the Ocean Terrace, and what an experience it was! The ambiance cannot be topped! We sat there in those comfortable chairs on the grass, sipped our Kir Royales and felt like royals. And all that on our 25th wedding anniversary!

We met our family here for a mini reunion. It is a beautiful property throughout. The golf course is well cared for and the patio areas have nice fire pits - you'll need them because it can be very cold here. The property is off by itself so you'll need to drive a bit to get to wineries or to... More
