Wedding site coordinators organized a seamless party covering every detail for set up, menu, rooms, party, and delicious buffet dinner. Gorgeous ocean location. There are several excellent places to eat in the neighborhood so you don't need to use your car.

We attended a wedding at The Oceano, which was a lovely setting outside. The reception food was very good. Our room was gorgeous although we were only there one night and didn't get much time to enjoy it - we will have to return.

I needed a little getaway and some pampering close to home. The Oceano is in a great location in Pillar Point harbor. Lots of places to eat, beautiful scenery and lovely hikes nearby. The room was large and spacious with a great view. When I checked in, I was given a complimentary upgrade. I loved the oversized bed, the elegant...

Nice, clean hotel. Rooms were very clean. TV was fuzzy with little channels available . We called front desk to ask for someone to come fix the TV, no one ever came. Restaurant/ bar in parking lot was extremely noisy! Worse than the fog horn. The worst part was not being able to get room service for coffee in the...

Very nice rooms; helpful staff. Great bathroom with shower and soaking tub. Balcony overlooking the harbor; not a true "ocean view" as advertised. Good restaurants within walking distance. Pricey but enjoyable.

After being unable to get in to The Ritz @ Half Moon Bay, it was suggested by the Ritz that this was close by and "next best alternative". It does not come even close to comparing to The Ritz, as it does not sit on water (seperated by road and a parking lot); not to mention my wife did not...

I booked this hotel using a TravelZoo voucher and couldn't be happier. I had never stayed here before but I will in the future. The room was large, big bathroom, a sitting area with a fireplace and a large balcony. Included with the voucher was a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. The furnishings were beautiful. There was a...

Very nice hotel. The receptionist was very helpful. She gave great suggestions for dinner and what to see in the area. This was our first visit will definitely come back. I was celebrating my birthday. The rooms very nice and bed very comfortable. The bar very nice as well. The only thing I didn't like was the shutter blinds for...

There are several good aspects about this hotel, but may others which do let it down. The room was a good size with a balcony facing the bay and a nice seating and coffee table area. The gym was a good size and quite well equipped but no windows so little/no natural light or fresh air. The service as mentioned...

“While we had a nice view from the second floor, my guess is it's even better from the third floor so you could see over the trees easily.”
