Oceano Hotel and Spa




Bask in the exquisite beauty of the Northern California coast at Oceano Hotel and Spa at Half Moon Bay Harbor. Situated right beside Pillar Point Harbor just 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco, Oceano features magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean and incredible harbor sunsets. Behind a white gated fence and ornamental bushes is a stone walkway where you’ll be escorted to meet your spouse-to-be. Your guests enjoy scenic harbor views and Italian Cypress trees as they witness your vows under a charming white arbor. If you’ve been dreaming of a toes-in-the-sand kind of ceremony, a short walk from the Hotel lobby brings guests to a sandy beach at Pillar Point Harbor. With the soft sound of waves lapping on the shoreline and boats resting on the water, your beach ceremony unfolds in true coastal style. Continue the festive mood with a reception in a rustic outdoor event space, The Gate House. Glass French doors open onto a scenic white patio accented with a warm stone fireplace. Guests will dine and dance as your amazing special day closes under a starry California sky. During colder months, your intimate reception can take place in the Montara Room. Guests will be treated to a beautiful room filled with natural light, and an expansive view of the harbor from the elegant balcony. Or celebrate your nuptials in lavish style in the Grand Ballroom, lit by golden chandeliers and wall sconces. The Atrium offers spot lighting and a glass ceiling for your first dance under the stars. Memorable wedding celebrations created to reflect your unique style come to life at Oceano Hotel and Spa.
