The city of Half Moon Bay is full of wonderful restaurants, shopping, and spas. The local area offers wide open spaces and many state parks. Half Moon Bay State Beach is a 15-minute drive.

What’s the Bottom Line?

The hotel sits on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, directly in sight of the Gray Whale migration routes. Expect cool summers with fog and wind that mix with warm days. The hotel is exclusive but offers a million dollar location and a long list of amenities, including on-site tennis. There is plenty here for the whole family, however it's also an amazing spot for couples, honeymooners, weddings, and business travelers. In four words: beautiful, serene, natural, and decadent.
