Certainly one of the very finest hotels I have ever stayed at! I’ve stayed there many times over the years and it never disappoints. In the era of 5 star recommendations being common, the Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton deserves 10 stars!

I will not go back
It was an ok hotel, average level, the service is not good. The Ocean Terrace stops service at 5.30pm, the food and service at Navio is not good for the price. Through the ocean view window, you can see half of another building. The coffee maker is very noisy. i will not go back

Amazing overnight staycation
Went for a short overnight. Had dinner at The Conservatory where the food was wonderful and Krystal our server was amazing. Spa treatment in the morning by Sean who gave a wonderful massage… then golf in the afternoon. Beautiful property, wonderful service and unparalleled golf.

Everything was pretty good except I paid for an ocean front view in the guest house and got a partial golf view which I know is a less expensive room.

This is a true 5 stars hotel and the best bang for the buck I have ever seen in California. The rooms are amazing, the service is amazing. The scenery is simply unique. Having lunch outdoors with ocean view is spectacular and very relaxing. Perfect for getaways and overall tranquillity. Super highly recommended!
