Editor’s Review of The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay

Located about 28 miles south of San Francisco, Half Moon Bay is an idyllic California coastal retreat. The beach is the main attraction in Half Moon Bay, where boating, fishing, surfing and sunbathing top the list of kid-friendly activities. The Ritz, with over 250 rooms, is the only luxury resort in town. Families seeking an upscale beach vacation will find spacious accommodations and peaceful ocean. Little luxurious touches, like a wine-tasting room, private dining options, stone fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling windows, add to the hotel's elegant ambiance. This resort also serves busy parents seeking solace with plenty of daytime and evening kids' programs throughout the week, and a teen center.
