We have frequented the Ritz at Half Moon Bay for dining and for Yappy Hour. The service and food have never been remarkable, but the view can not be beat! We decided to stay for our 3rd Anniversary. We were looking forward to enjoying the fabulous view from our patio with it's own fire pit. We had made dinner reservations... More

This Ritz is set in a beautiful location on the California coast. The quality of the facility, service and food is on par with the Ritz brand. I particularly like evening bon fires, relaxing and making s'mores. Very nice touch!

The Ritz is a first class hotel with a very attentive staff. I happened to stay on my Birthday and the staff was aware of this. They were all very kind and had a variety of thoughtful gifts throughout my stay (from chocolate truffles to bath salts to rose petals on the bed). The grounds around the hotel include a... More

Great oceanside view, service as you would expect from the Ritz, excellent food, very quiet....refreshing and calming. Would have liked to stay in main building. Nice walk to the cottage but not in the chill of the evening. Ideal for retreat...or for an intimate conference. Stimulating. Beatiful sunset. Beautiful starry skies.

My wife and I went there for our wedding anniversary and had a great time. We had to ask for a room change, since there was a party going on and we wanted a more quite stay. The hotel staff was really helpful, nice and willing to respond to our requests. The hotel has a small beach, and although the... More

We have stayed at other fine resorts and Ritz Carlton locations, but this was by far the best. The views are incredible and the golfing (recommend ocean course) was quite difficult but a wonderful experience. The service and people are incredibly kind and warm and the fire pit at dusk is a ton of fun! Navio was a great dinner... More

We went out over Father's Day in June and of course the prices were very high but we really wanted to stay there so we did. We had two rooms with private firepits that overlooked the 18th green and ocean. Wonderful view. The staff was very accommodating in the outdoor bar and both restaurants. The guys played the ocean course... More

Excellent resort and hotel. It is expensive, you definitely get what you pay for. The staff can make every reasonable request happen. Pet friendly. Pros- Everything. Beautiful views, comfortable swanky hotel. Wines - incredible, of course. Cons- Pricey. 25-30 minute ride from San Francisco depending on traffic. Food - was good, but not fantastic. Excellent presentation and plating. Seemed a... More

I am very lucky enough to get to travel and stay in some amazing properties across the globe. We arrived on Thursday and stayed for three nights in one of the cottage suites (which I thought was a little sparsely furnished and tired). The personal fire pit was a cool feature. The hotel property is peaceful, scenic and convenient with... More

My wife and I stayed at the Ritz for our 20th Anniversary. The service was first class and the location was unbelievable. You must get the rooms with the fire pits. We used our fire pit in the morning and evening with views of the golf course and ocean. We were treated very nice with extras for our anniversary. The... More
