The food options at the hotel were horrible and expensive. It's a pet friendly hotel, but not allowed pet to eat anywhere. We did takeouts for every meal every day. The staff didn't know what exactly is allowed and what's not. A horrible experience and full of rude people around.

Our room (not suite) was small and the beds are small. For the room price, the beds and linens should at least be improved. Love the bathroom and the firepit outside our room and the view was amazing. The pool needs to be improved. I did love the service and the staff for their hardwork and dedication. Property is clean although beware of flying holf balls. Food was amazing.

Who can I contact? I love staying in Halfmoon Bay and went again and it was amazing. The first night the toilet had a leak and I slipped and hurt my knee and went don’t the next morning and told the lady at the front desk and she said thank you and will notify someone to fix it. Not sure but with my company if there’s an incident we have to write it on paper. Little shocked with the response we got when I slipped in the bathroom with toilet leak. If there someone I can contact.
