This was a great place to relax. The food was delicious cuisine, the staff was friendly. I went on a raft to go snorkeling with a guide, followed by rum punch. A wonderful day.

Beautiful beach, BBQ lobster, a friendly dog which followed me around, a good bar and a stop on the way to snorkel at an excellent reef.

This is our spot to go for snorkeling without the crowds or hagglers you find at 7 mile. It's a more natural setting and the word is getting out about this hideaway. We spent 1/2 a day here chatting with folks who came in on a boat, and others who rode their mopeds (which we are renting next year). There... More

This place is north of 7 mile beach by a few miles. It's nice. The beach is small, and the bay is about 100 yards wide. The restaurant was a bit slow. The snorkeling was OK, but not spectacular. There's some brain and fan coral near the island. My family was perfectly happy here, and we stayed most of the... More

My husband and I visited and had an amazing time. They do not allow solicitation which made it the highlight of our trip in Jamaica. You will get solicited everywhere in Jamaica except here. It was a $5 charge to get in but so worth it. The beach was beautiful. There was only one other couple there so it was... More

This beach is quiet, with a long shallow entry. The water is crystal clear and the type of blue takes your breath away. It is shaped like a half-moon, hence the name. We visited with two small children, and the water is perfect for beginner swimmers. The owner has several dogs, but they are friendly with people. Tips: 1) Check... More

We didn't stay at the resort, but visited the private beach. This is an absolute MUST if you're visiting Negril. No solicitation allowed on this beach, makes for a hassle-free beach day. Lounges and hammocks around the small, protected bay are perfect and the beach is super quiet and peaceful. There's also canoes, snorkels and bamboo rafts to hire if... More

We went to Half Moon on our last full day in Jamaica. We had previously been to Seven Mile beach on the previous days, which, while beautiful, was full of people trying to sell us things. On our last day we wanted a break from that. You do have to pay $5 to get in, but it's worth it. We... More
