Memorable anniversary visit. From front of house, all the way to housekeeping, we met many warm, smiling faces of the staff. This is an A+ property, from the unique setting to the excellently maintained property itself. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway.

it's a resort hotel that offers spectacular views over a sprawling golf course. The staff at the front drive and front desk were extremely accommodating ladies and gentlemen. Walk-ins will pay a steep valet parking fee, so make sure you dine in to make the most out of it. Great food at the restaurant makes staying here a dream!

We diverted here from a road trip to Ensenada, we figured two days of golf and luxury first. The resort has friendly staff from valet to check in. Check in gets you complimentary glass of wine. Lay out of elevator a bit confusing as the first floor is actually the second floor. This place is romantic and pricey, we got...

This is a great place to stay between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. It is right on the coast and it is so close to so many activities. They have a wonderful staff and everything that you would expect from a Ritz.

Spectacular coast views. It is a 10 minute walk to the stairs for beach access. There is a good coast trail for walking in the 3-5 mile range. Golf course is right at hotel. Swimming pool (we didn't use) is in another building a short distance away. We didn't use the spa, so no comment. Room view was wonderful, bed...

The Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay is an incredible property. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be pampered and enjoys golf. The club level lounge serves and array of great small plates and drinks.

The hotel is located in a beautiful property, the scenario is jus amazing. I do believe Ritz Carlton Customer Service is a little overrated, I had issues at my check in and since we have been studying this company business model, I had huge expectations on how my situation would be handled, however the level of service was the same...

We spent two nights at this property. The view of the ocean from this hotel is unparalleled, it's breathtaking. Service from the staff is excellent, very attentive.
