Great location augmented with the bagpiper in the evening silhouetted by the crashing shore and illuminated by the fire pits. Rooms off the main lodge were big. Peeling wallpaper by tub in one area but that happens. Decor was beautiful, warm but stately as you would expect for a Ritz A post visit bauble by food and beverage when I...

I loved this place. We had the most wonderful week. I keep thinking about how great it was and am so excited to go back. Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay gets a perfect score in every hotel review category. Also loved Navio. I included a balcony photo at sunset.

My husband and I came to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and everything was fantastic! The room was fabulous and the staff was wonderful! We upgraded to a room with a fire pit at the last minute, after we has already checked-in and it wasn't a problem. I only wish we has stayed longer.

This was our second stay at the Half Moon Bay RC and it was fabulous! The level of service provided by each and every staff member was outstanding. I can highly recommend getting one of the rooms with an outdoor fire pit and roasting some marshmallows and making s'mores, while having a glass of wine (or two). As well, we...

This property lives up to the Ritz Carlton promise. Even when it stormed during most of my visit, I enjoyed the facilities, the food and the amazing staff. The worst part of the trip was landing at SFO, but the hotel stay more than made up for it.

Romantic setting, luxurious accommodation, perfect ingredients for a couples weekend away. Weather permitting the coastal walks are beautiful. The food is delicious. The village of Half Moon Bay is quaint.

Surprisingly this hotel situated on the huge ocean front property offers only (paid) valet paring. We wanted to look around but there were no place to park. I suppose if you ask how much it's cost - you can't afford it. Not for the window shoppers or lookers. There was not even a sign for the hotel off of hwy...

We didn't stay at the hotel, but stopped in on our drive for drinks at sunset. Beautiful location with fire pits and bagpipes and blankets to keep warm. The valet is pricey for $30 on the weekend, but there is coastal access parking a bit down the road if you are willing to walk 1/4-1/2 mile.
