Stayed for 3 nights, absolutely stunning property, with ocean views and a golf course. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated, and the service is on point as well. The only drawback is the distance to the city, so you are bound to eat at their restaurants every meal. The only issues I had with that was that one day...

This hotel does not dissapoint! The service is outstanding, the views are unending, the golf courses are fantastic, and the food is outstanding. You can dine at the golf course for a reasonable price or go all out at Navio.

The views from this hotel are incredible. The hotel is warm and inviting and takes advantage of the exquisite views. The rooms with the private patios and fire pits overlooking the ocean combined with the sounds of the crashing waves are the best!

Stayed at the Ritz for a special birthday and they consistently went above and beyond to celebrate. From welcoming warmly (all staff wished happy birthday and were aware) to sending a beautiful and delicious dessert to the room, this property does an excellent job of making you feel welcome. They location can't be beat, directly on the bluff affording the...

This place is definitely different from Area bay regular base camps for usual SKO. Nice facilities for such an event, international but good food. The place is also very well located with great see view and a nice swimming pool to fight jet-lag consequences.

Love this property! All staff were amazing. We would love to go back! We went for my birthday. They had a gift and balloons on the bed when we checked in! The courtyard had fire pits and the bagpipe guy played at sunset.

Special thanks to Kristin Hegedusch with Photo Concierge at The Ritz Carlton - Half Moon Bay. She spent a generous amount of time walking our family around the breathtaking grounds and beach area, creating beautiful photos and an unexpected video vignette that exceeded my expectations!

For our first family vacation we had the opportunity to stay 3 nights at the Ritz-Carlton HMB. It is quite the journey to get here, so the glass of wine at check-in definitely helps take the edge off. We appreciated being able to check into our room slightly early, giving us time to get settled and refreshed before our photography...

See previous notes. There is more like one spa receptionist not being thorough. This survey is too lengthy. One person in guest relations was thorough but she wasn't there during our entire stay. We were not able to check out since no one at front desk answered the phone. We were put on hold 3 times and finally told operator,...
