Very beautiful resort complex, if a bit stuffy. Great activities, including snorkeling, tennis, basketball. Recommend using bicycles to get around the complex. Great setting, and good accommodations for family of four. Don't be afraid to get off property and enjoy some of the local restaurants, which will help offset the pricy onsite dining options

We just spent 3 nights at Half Moon and were so sad to leave! We stayed in a junior suite (room 50) and were blown away by the location and amazing accommodation. We were literally 5 steps from the beautiful beach from our French doors. The room was updated, clean and spacious. The beach was quiet and pristine. They have... More

Our first time at Half Moon - and certainly not the last time. Perfect hotel for anyone looking for a great, relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle. The scenery, atmosphere and service is exquisite! We stayed in the West cottage 158 with ocean front porch.
