Situated on the south side of Half Moon Bay, this top class golf course and hotel offers quality and service to rival any of the facilities on the Pacific coast.

Ocean views abound as shown here. The dinner was excellent, special call out on the pork chop which was spectacular!
Sitting out on the terrace and taking in sunset by the fire is a good way to wrap up a day at the ocean side.

I had heard a lot of things about this hotel - including that it is eye wateringly expensive.
First the positive. The views are quite lovely. The spaces are nicely decorated.
The rooms are small. And you can hear your neighbours shower, clear their throats, and hear their alarm clocks go off in the early morning. The light streams in around the door frame from the corridor as does the noise. For a hotel that charges 1000 bucks a night you would expect a good nights sleep but sadly in my 4 nights here I didnt get one. And I changed rooms.
Beds are comfortable.
Food is ok but in room breakfast dining averaged 60 dollars !
I found the whole experience meh. Overpriced and not delivering on the basics for a hotel.
Yes the views are pretty, but there are so many other places.

I guess I generally expect a lot out of the Ritz Carlton, but this one disappointed me. No doubt, the resort has spectacular views. I was given a cottage-type room. No problem. It's quieter, but the room had a musty smell, like it has not been aired out for a long time.
There was no place to put clothes, no dresser. There was a closet for hanging clothes, and that was all. I lived out of my small weekend bag the entire 4-day weekend. The service was just okay. As an Elite member, I thought I could extend my check-out time a little bit, but I couldn't. I wasn't given a room upgrade at all.
I gave it 4 stars because of the views or else I would've given this hotel 3 stars.
The hotel does have an EV charging station.

Room Tip: Get ocean-front rooms

From the main house, Independent guest houses, golf course and spectacular ocean view, it doesn’t get any better on views. Service, however, cannot be photographed. It’s what separates The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay from all the rest!
