I stayed here 4 nights - 2 for business and 2 with my adult daughter. The location overlooking the Pacific is dramatic and beautiful. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and assigned to a large, attractive room in the Fairway Building. I especially liked the free bottled water each day, foot rest in the shower for shaving my legs and... More

Decided to stay here one night after being underwhelmed with the alternatives in Half Moon Bay. Wonderful, wonderful staff. Lovely topnotch rooms, and lovely public spaces. Both of the rooms for us and our kids were upgraded. Husband enjoyed golfing both courses. The kids enjoyed the heated pool. My masseuse at the spa was excellent. We all enjoyed sitting at... More

This hotel was amazing! From the views of the ocean to the amazing customer service, everything was top notch. I would highly recommend staying here . Make sure you take the complimentary bikes they have on property for a stroll down the coast.

We stop here for a night during our Anniversary trip last week. This was our second time and we loved it! We got a lovely room with a private fire pit. We had drinks outside before dinner and enjoyed room service for dinner. The only bad part was that we didn't plan ahead and make reservations for Sunday brunch. I... More

We had a lovely family stay in Half Moon Bay, and definitely picked an amazing place in choosing the Ritz. Beautiful views, and plenty to do on site if you are staying for a few days. Golf seems to be the primary focus . . . we do not golf, but enjoyed the beach, biking, fire pits, and swimming while... More

This was the first time I'd stayed at a Ritz, and I felt as pampered as expected. We were there for my mom's 75th birthday, and they continued to acknowledge it, which was nice. We purchased the Club Level and stayed on the same floor. It was well worth the extra cost since we at there for every meal. Since... More

Staff was great (especially Junna and Bianca at the photo concierge). Photo concierge is a great way to get professional grade photos at quite the reasonable price. Made our stay orders of magnitude more memorable.

So I got to stay at this property one night for a work-related function and I was put up in one of the guest house (second floor) rooms with an ocean & golf course view.

This place is well worth every penny to stay here. The view are amazing and the staff was wonderful from start to finish. The golfing was great. Very challenging courses. The nightly bagpipes were defiantly a surprise right outside our window. Upgrade and get a suite if possible. We are looking forward to going back soon! Triple Forks Hunting
