Amazing property made for a great staycation. Views of the sunset are spectacular and we loved the bagpipes!! We had a firepit room and it was so much fun making s'mores and drinking wine. Beautiful property with first class service.

This is one fantastic hotel. From the moment we stepped into the lobby, everything was first class. The quality of service was impeccable. The room was excellent with a wonderful view out to the 18th green of the Old Course and the Pacific Ocean. The patio had a gas fire pit that we used in the evening. Every morsel of food we had at the Ritz was outstanding. We will travel to this hotel again.

This property has it all! The location is spectacular, the grounds are beautifully maintained, the food is delicious, the facilities are well planned....but the outstanding staff is what makes this destination such a jewel. From the welcoming front desk to the accommodating housekeepers, guests are made to feel at home. Special mention must be made of Sandra Potter who provided us with concierge service that is beyond compare.

The Ritz at Half Moon Bay was a real treat to end our Northern California trip! The rooms and grounds were beautiful! Our only regret was the fog was so thick that we couldn't see the ocean!

The Ritz was very nice. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The views rival those of Scotland and New Zealand. The transition from hotel to golf was seamless and added to the convenience and enjoyment of my experience.
