Ritz half moon bay is the best total getaway. Club room with outdoor fire pit was best. Great views and beaches. Town walking distance with great restaurants cant wait to take the family back. If you wish to road trip you have easy access to SF and many sites

We visited in June to escape the Texas heat. Customer service was excellent, food was good and the location was great for day trips. Will definitely go back. The only downside is the wonderful wine bar and best restaurant is closed the first part of the week. The spa staff was friendly but I feel the services were a bit...

We loved our stay at Half Moon Bay. From the second we arrived we were treated to first class service! The room was absolutely beautifully decorated and we had a fire pit - complete with s'mores kit waiting in room in celebration of my birthday. The views are breathtaking.

We stayed in one of the guest houses about a 10 minute walk from the main hotel. The rooms had recently been redone with grays and white. They are spacious, have a mini fridge with a coffee maker. If you're on the first floor, there are out door fire pits. Some of the rooms have indoor fire places. We were...

A beautiful location and a beautiful property. The outdoor patio is a hugely popular place to sit, soak up some sun, watch the waves pounding in and watch the golfers on the 18th hole. Rooms are large and well appointed. Consider saving a buck and opting for a room without an ocean view. It is a lot nicer to sit...

Its not surprising that everything was perfect during our stay. From the time that we arrived and were greeted by the valet to the front desk and others everyone was over the top welcoming.
