About The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay

Positioned in all its elegance atop a secluded promontory which looms above the Northern Californian coastline, this upscale accommodation-house mirrors in elegance the scenery with the quality of service. Private functions, such as weddings and conferences, are well-accommodated.

A varying assortment of rooms, suites, and guesthouses remain at the selection of guests—many of which include marble bathrooms, gas fireplaces, and separate living rooms. Window-views vary between the stunning oceanfront and The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay’s private golf course.

The serene pleasures of luxury spa treatments are at the constant disposal of visitors, equating in excellence only to the residents’ lounge, where personal concierge services are coupled by custom meals at the request of guests.

Positive Reviews

Aloft a Promontory.

The area which encompasses The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay is incomparable to that of any other. Views of the Northern Californian coast from atop the secluded promontory are accompanied by vast stretches of private golf courses. Many of the residents' facilities, and nearly all of the sumptuous sleeping arrangements, feature oceanfront views, permitting gorgeous sights of the sunset.

Delectable Dining.

When seeking reprieve with Half Moon Bay Resort, three on-site restaurants—ranging from Al Fresco dining to three-course rounds and light dishes in The Conservatory—serving an assortment of meals from early morning well into the evening. A delectable collection of local wines remain at the selection of residents, making a lovely addition to any meal.

Luxurious Lodgings.

Equating in elegance only to the stunning encompassment, Half Moon Bay Resort houses an unparalleled array of sleeping arrangements, each individually appointed and well-equipped with various appliances. Marble bathrooms, gas fireplaces, and sanctioned living areas occupy each lodging. Extended-stays are well-accommodated in two guesthouses.

Negative Reviews

Lengthy Restaurant Service.

While this stunning Ritz-Carlton estate provides guests with a diverse and hand-prepared dining experience, many have borne complaints over the lengthy wait-times for service. Especially during busier seasons, those dining at Half Moon Bay can expect an upwards of 30 minutes for the arrival of their order.


As this gorgeously upheld property draws a considerable crowd, some may find the anticipated luxury of silence to be lacking. Prior inhabitants have reported large crowds to congregate within the restaurants, lounge, and courtyard.

No Issue Reported.

So far, no further negative opinions have been expressed by guests of The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay.
