Everything you could hope for in hotel.

Both of our children were away on trips. This would be the first multiple day excursion alone in almost 18 years for my wife and I, so we wanted it to be special The Ritz Carlton did not disappoint. From the complimentary wine tasting at check-in, to the room, which was exquisite, the turndown service, complimentary food and drinks in the Club Lounge to the location and facilities it was a wonderful experience all around.

Go for a room with Club Lounge access. We snacked and had a few drinks there at least twice a day. Saved a trip or two to the restaurant and bar and had wonderful views and staff to boot.

Beautiful Oceanside resort

Stayed at coastal view room with outdoor terrace patio with fire pit. Gorgeous views, very relaxing, attentive service. Dinner at Navio and walking along the beach were highlights of the stay. If you can afford to upgrade to an ocean view room, it really is worth it!

Dining tip: In Hotel

We had a special occasion with a variety of special diets like vegan, vegetarian, and the traditional meat eater. They went out of their way to make sure everyone was comfortable and there was not sense that they were waiting for us to leave the restaurant. It is well run for an out of the way location.

Superior Service

The location was breathtaking, on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The service provided by the staff was second-to-none, everything you'd expected from a 5-star hotel. The live jazz over the weekend was great. Outside of that, there was no night life. The hotel is more for golfers and those wanting to relax. The food in Navio's restaurant was extremely expensive and not that filling. The drinks in the Conservatory Lounge were unnecessarily expensive, also. I guess that's what first-class living is all about. We got the fire-pit terrace room, but it was cold and rainy during our visit, so we used it sparingly. If we visit SF again, we'll probably stay at the Ritz in SF or one of the hotels near Fisherman's Wharf.

Worth every penny

I enjoyed the beach, golf course and the outdoor trail. This hotel is what hotels should be. My every wish was met quickly and precisely.
