This place has the best view in the bay area! The hotel is located in one of the most beautiful beaches in the bay, on top of a cliff, with great hiking trails around it and an amazing golf course. It's a great place for a brunch with a beautiful ocean view and a nice buffet.

Wow. What a fantastic hotel. The Ritz Half Moon Bay is designed to look like one of the old seaside lodges of the 18th century. The service at the hotel was amazing - from the moment you walked in the door, the staff radiated friendliness asking how they could help, offering us bottled water as we waited to check in. We had a sea view room, which had a big window overlooking the sea cliffs and the beach below. The rooms were big and very nicely done, with a large king size bed and a large padded lounge where you could read next to the window.
They also have an amazing back patio area where you can sit around a huge fire pit with big blankets on your lap, taking in the ocean with a cocktail in hand.
One of the best parts of the hotel, though, was the back patio, where they had 2 large gas fire pits, where you could sit around the fire in big wooden chairs drinking wine while taking in the sweeping views. It is often cold, but between the fire, thick wool blankets and the cocktails you dont seem to notice. They even offer luxury smores kits, so you can roast your own.
The spa was nice - they had a nice jacuzzi and steam rooms. My wife got a massage and said it was good though not amazing. The hotel was also kid-friendly. We were there on Easter Sunday where they had an amazing brunch but also lots of childrens' activities, including a petting zoo and an easter egg hunt.
The only real complaint I had (other than the $50 per night parking, which seemed like a way of masking the true price of the hotel) was that the hotel lacks a pool. They give you access to the pool next door at sea colony, but it is a good 5-10 minute walk outside, which was pretty inconvenient.
Overall I would include the Ritz Half Moon in my top 10 hotel list.

The serene cliffside location of this Ritz-Carlton makes it one of the most beautiful and romantic hotels in the Bay Area, if not the entire US.
Our luxurious coastal view room was fabulously appointed. The bed was so comfortable - had it not been so gorgeous outside, I could've stayed in bed all day long. Service was top notch all the way.
Enjoy some cocktails from the Conservatory Lounge - they are wonderfully crafted. Take your drink outside, grab a blanket and cozy up by one of the fire pits.
If you're a golfer, make sure to book your tee times in advance. Their championship golf courses are a dream to play on.

Wonderful resort with beautiful views and wonderful ambiance, the Ritz HMB is a great option for city folks to "get away" without being too far away. Playing golf on a foggy day is next to impossible however but being in this gorgeous property any time, good or foggy weather is a great experience.

Breath taking grounds. Guest rooms are very comfortable. Beds are so wonderful. Bathroom is huge and the tub so relaxing. Hang out by the fire pits and hear the ocean crash into the surf all night long!

beautiful relaxing hotel set right by the cliffs. The staff is very friendly and the service outstanding. The spa is nice, though I missed a relaxing room there. Unfortunately the swimming pool is 5 min. walk from the hotel. We had dinner at the restaurant - tried the tasting menu which was fantastic!
