I agree with most of the reviews on this site. no pool towels/beach & so so service. The brochure never mentioned that it could be a 10-15 minute walk from the villas by the conference center to the beach, or one could walk 5 min. to the conference center, take a 3x an hour shuttle, and walk through the reception...

More than exceeded our expectations. Travelled there with a family of five (kids ages 4, 6, and 8). The hardest part of the trip was figuring out where you are staying as the map is not updated and the rooms have complicated descriptions. We stayed in a royal suite that was a bedroom upstairs and one downstairs with a bathroom... More

My wife and I took a vacation at Half Moon last week (without the kid!) and it was perfect in every way. The staff was friendly, polite and professional - attentive, but not overbearing. There were a few (Emoy, Alton) who went above and beyond. The room (Junior Suite in Cottage 9) exceeded all of our expectations, the food was... More

Having travelled a great deal in the Caribbean we knew not to expect spectacular food or crisp service. The food was good and diverse enough that we were not bored during our one week stay. The service was always friendly, if not always attentive. However, the wine lists really need improvement! Mediocre wine; prices too high. Overall however, we found... More

The Half Moon is a lovely property. My room was just on the beach, and it was a thrill to wake up every morning and walk out on the sand. The hotel is very secure and the staff is warm and accomodating. My only complaint was the restuarant - sub-stand service and food for such a luxurious property. The wait... More

My husband and I just returned from a 10 day stay at the Half Moon and we can not wait to return. We stayed in one of the 10 original houses that line the beautiful "half moon" beach. Our room was on the second floor, right on the water, I would reccommend it to anyone. The housekeeper, Audre, must have... More

We just returned from Half Moon Bay and would not return. Not because it isn't lovely. It is. But it is not as well maintained as a luxury resort should be, and for the money we've stayed in much nicer places. Specific complaints were that the duplex we stayed in (oleander) was huge but very shabby. The kitchen smelled, there... More
