I was referred to this gem by a friend and boy did I enjoy it! Good food, nice laid back setting that seems to somehow take you back in time (vintage mode), and great people. Doneika at the Front Desk was pleasant, professional and very helpful. The staff really seem to be happy to work at heaven on earth. The...

We have just had our first day at this lovely resort. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. Our room, facing the beach, could not be lovelier. There is a huge bathroom with a view of the garden. We are centrally located to the pool (they have a lap pool also), the swimming beach and bars and restaurants. There is...

Without a doubt Half Moon is the best resort on the island. The staff is so nice. Always asking to help. The food is super. We opted for the all inclusive meal plan and were happy we did. Make sure your party enjoys at least on meal at the Sugar Mill. It will compare with any restaurant in the States.

Half Moon is one of the nicest resorts I have ever stayed at. It is incredible. Awesome accommodations, activities, and amenities. They have a golf course, restaurants, tennis, squash, basketball, fitness. You name it. With the resort being 400 acres, they offer golf carts and bikes for a small fee to get around. On site they also offer swimming with...

I know if you compare my review with others my score will seem harsh, and I have taken time on my return to ensure I give a considered review. The resort is undoubtedly stunning. We saw a number of resorts whilst on the island and this was the best looking by far. It has a lovely beach - the main...

We stayed at the resort for 5 nights during March Break with our 7 years old son and 9 years daughter. The resort has very good kids program and service was excellent. Our room had a gorgeous view facing the ocean where we have our own private beach area. Food was expensive on resort, but very good quality. Make sure...

We shared a garden view villa with two other families (6 adults, 6 kids ranging from 2 years to 8 years). We had an amazing time! Each villa comes with a butler (which we felt weird about, but Mr Rennis was so great!), a cook and a house keeper. We found that it was much easier to eat at the...

We've been to them all now: large resorts, boutique resorts, and in between, and Half Moon is pretty perfect for couples and families with young children. Stay here if you are considering a trip to Jamaica with the family. The resort stretches along a perfect, protected beach for kids. The accommodations are spacious and beautifully maintained. The kids club is...

We were in the same Habiscus accommodation as last year. Food, friendliness, wealth of activities, and outstanding natural beauty found here have spoiled us for going anywhere else. We'll be back next March to celebrate a birthday and our anniversary.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A destination in itself, set on 400 acres of manicured grounds with two miles of beachfront. We have 197 individually-appointed rooms and suites and 31 villas, most of which have views of the Caribbean Sea. All of our guests can enjoy the extensive facilities of this destination, which include the largest award-winning spa oasis in Jamaica, an 18-hole par-72 championship golf course, our own equestrian centre with 28 horses and the Sugar Mill, awarded as Jamaica's best restaurant. As a discerning traveller, you will enjoy the luxury of space and tranquility we have to offer. Imagine your first morning taking in the panoramic view of the horizon, and watching the sunrise having just concluded yoga meditation in our overwater bungalow. Then, cycle to the Seagrape Terrace for breakfast before beginning a day of whatever you want. Whether you choose to lounge on the beach, play a round tennis or golf, visit a local art gallery, or go horse riding along the beach, your days at Half Moon are yours to spend in any way you wish. ... more   less
