The best hotel
The Ritz-Carlton is our go-to hotel whenever we visit Half Moon Bay. We travel as a family and have stayed in a good number of hotels and the Ritz at HMB is at the top for luxury, comfort, service, nature, and activities for children.

One of the best experience in hotels. Fantastic view outside, perfect room condition and great food. The staffs are super kind and helpful. It was a short family getaway before the school just began, and everyone was happy. Definitely we will go back sometime.
