We stayed over night. We were head to Maui and decided to takes break here. Spectacular views!! Our room has a firepit. Guest services supplied s'mores to toast & pumpkin beer. Perfect end of rainy cold day.

Everything of stay is awesome. Especially thanks to Jessica(Front Desk). By the way, I believe you will enjoy the Lounge Service. My sons enjoy to cook the marshmallow at the pit. I am the royal customer of Ritz Carlton. I love Ritz Carlton.

It rained. I could not go outside. I stayed in and had a good time. The soup was very good. We enjoyed the art show that ran for three days. I did not get to go to down town Half Moon Bay. The food in the art show was very good.

Only complaint was the very low pressure from the shower head. At... More

Started with fresh crab rolled in an avocado blanket topped with caviler. Pumpkin soup with lobster medallions. Desert (photo) ginger bread cake covered... More

We stopped at Ritz HMB on a trip down Hwy 1 and I'm so glad I chose this stop. The views are perfection.

Nice, but not exceptional. Very expensive for the experience the hotel provides.clean, pleasant staff, good food, pretty views. Heard noise from other rooms, hallway and, even from staff early in the morning.

great views, beautiful hotel and location. Great place to get away, Would highly recommend it. Even thought it was rainy and windy it was impossible not to walk around outside. Slight drawback - long (expensive) way from airport.
