We have stayed at a number of Ritz Carltons around the world, but, the Ritz Carlton here in Half Moon Bay California is among the best. Stayed to celebrate our anniversary on Christmas Eve and the staff didn't miss a beat in making sure our celebration was special. Our check in staff whose name started with an A was so warm and welcoming. We had a wonderful room on the club lounge overlooking the ocean and golf course. Bed was decorated with rose petals in the shape of a heart with a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolate dipped strawberries awaiting us. Great touch. We originally were going to eat away from the hotel, but, the ambience and the location of the hotel with its views did indeed remind us of the highlands and persuaded us to just stay at the hotel and enjoy the complete experience there. Had a nice lunch at the outdoor deck which featured the best shortrib sliders for $18.00. Walked the beautiful walkway around the hotel, sat by the fireplace outside enjoying some wine and the bagpipe ceremony at sunset. Had dinner at the Conservatory restaurant which is more casual than their main dining room Navio. Both restaurants are very good with Navio being more high end. (We spent a new year's eve at Navio one year) Conservatory was more casual with a soft jazz duo playing during this evening. My husband had one of the best pasta dishes with a creme marinara meat sauce and I was still full from lunch so I ordered a calamari Caesar salad. When the salad came out with cold fried calamari, the waitress gladly brought a plate of freshly made calamari fritte as a replacement. Whoever trains the staff at this hotel does a great job. We were so enthralled with the atmosphere and scenic location of this hotel that we cannot wait to return. It made us feel as if we made a brief escape to Europe.
