My husband and I stayed here over a long weekend. Even with the weather being less than ideal (raining and windy), it is still, easily, one of the most beautiful places to be and the hotel is on a cliff overlooking the water. We loved being able to stay so close to the ocean on such a nice property. Our...

$49 after an expensive room charge and resort charge. With no alternative to the Valet Parking option only, I felt line item gouged. Fire alarm show was outstanding if you enjoy that sort of entertainment. Not once but twice, once at 3:00 AM and once at 11:00 PM. Plays havoc on sleep patterns.

The Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay went out of their way to make our special day the best it could be. From our early check in, the engineer making sure our fire pit worked and getting us an iPhone player to fit our old iPod, to calling and checking with us to make sure we had everything we needed!

Great location augmented with the bagpiper in the evening silhouetted by the crashing shore and illuminated by the fire pits. Rooms off the main lodge were big. Peeling wallpaper by tub in one area but that happens. Decor was beautiful, warm but stately as you would expect for a Ritz A post visit bauble by food and beverage when I...

I loved this place. We had the most wonderful week. I keep thinking about how great it was and am so excited to go back. Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay gets a perfect score in every hotel review category. Also loved Navio. I included a balcony photo at sunset.

My husband and I came to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and everything was fantastic! The room was fabulous and the staff was wonderful! We upgraded to a room with a fire pit at the last minute, after we has already checked-in and it wasn't a problem. I only wish we has stayed longer.
