Again, Half-Moon did not disappoint. I have stayed here multiple times, with and without my family. I recently stayed during my participation in the Jamaica Open. The staff as always was very accommodating, the room beyond my expectations and the food incredible. Of note, my last time at Half-Moon was in January, 2012 and I accidentally left a nice bottle...

We just returned home from 7 days at Half Moon in Jamaica. It exceeded our expectations. We were in a beachfront cottage which was like living in a house right on the ocean.
