Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Perched on bluff overlooking the Pacific, a stay on southern California's coast doesn't get much better than the The Ritz. As a AAA 5-Diamond hotel, the service and surroundings are 5-star all the way and the views are to-die-for.

Rooms have a muted palette with soft creams, blues, and sea-foam greens that don’t compete or distract from the natural beauty surrounding the hotel. Most come with an ocean view and a private balcony or patio, and some even have a fire pit. Bathrooms have floor-to-ceiling marble and double vanities.

Besides having access to a clean and quiet beach, this hotel is an active-lifestyle lovers dream and it also has ton of family-friendly activities. From surf lessons, oceanfront yoga, poolside movies and programs even for toddlers -- this place has entertainment covered. 

There's also tennis courts, a lovely spa, two pools and a playground. If hunger calls, there’s a snack bar in the pool area and two restaurants.
