I have been fortunate to have traveled to many places, multiple continents and some really swanky resorts. NOTHING I have ever experienced can match Half Moon Bay. The views are spectacular, the service impeccable. For best results, take a book and simply sit outside listening to the waves crash against the shore. OH, also take a segway tour.

The restaurants both inside and outdoors are a great place to have a drink, food and just absorb the views. It's almost always full and make reservations before going. Also, it's about one hour away from SFO airport and a great conference location

Very warm and comfortable atmosphere with friendly staff. The views and golf course are awesome. The common area outside with the view of the ocean and the multiple fire pits are inviting and relaxing. The spa is very nice and the rooms are clean and comfortable.

Awesome service with a very personal touch. Check-in was a pleasurable experience for my wife and I. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating and personable. Food was excellent. A bit pricey overall for other fine resorts in the area, but best service of all of them.

Everything from the service, room, dining and golf exceeded our expectations. We were disappointed with the pool only because it is dated and needs an upgrade. Would return again if plans take us to the area
