Stayed here for 2 nights with family to play golf and relax. Kindly upgraded to Ocean view rooms alongside 18th fairway of the Old Course with great views. Our ground floor rooms were spacious with terraces and fire pits which we used at breakfast and for toasting marshmallows after dinner. The day we played the Ocean Course it was very...

This review is overdue, because I didn't know how to make it helpful. It's a Ritz Carlton on the coast, it's not going to suck. The property is gorgeous, the room was elegant but still cozy, the staff walks that perfect line between professional and friendly. It's an incredible hotel! On an incredible stretch of coastline! So, I'm going to...

We recently stayed at this property to celebrate a birthday, but were left disappointed by a mixed experience. It wasn't one big thing, just a series of little oversights that added up to an average experience. Quite frankly, at this price point, I would have expected more and feel that the attention to service was lacking. In addition, it appears...

We got here early afternoon and were able to check in early into our beautiful one bedroom suite. Huge two rooms, beautifully appointed. Wonderful staff. Enjoyed sitting by the fire pit with delicious hot chocolate, practicing our putting over looking the ocean and the amazing turn down service. Staff is very accommodating.

The quality of the spa ,and the overall service is top. The quality of the food is really exceptional ,even if you tend to forget everything just admiring the sun disappearing in the Ocean. The bag piper at sun down is a nice touch .

This is a great property with excellent amenities. The staff is really helpful and the natural beauty of the location is a must-see. Some similarities to Pebble Beach without all the traffic. A quiet relaxing getaway. We look forward to returning.
