My family researched many Caribbean resorts looking for ease of travel, luxury and acceptance of children (11, 9 and 7). Half Moon Bay fit the bill in all respects. We have a few minor criticisms but those are easily outweighed by the positives. With respect to access, Half Moon Bay is a very short drive from the airport in Montego... More

We just returned from a five night stay at Half Moon. This was our third time visiting the lovely resort and each time the experience gets better. From the moment we arrived until the time we departed we were treated like royalty. We stayed in the West End Cottage area for the first time and really loved it. Previously we... More

If this is what you want on your vacation, this is the place to go. My husband and I have traveled to several other caribbean islands and would rank Half Moon at the top. If you want your biggest decision of the day to be what to have for breakfast and what bikini should you wear, this is your spot.... More

Our package included use of fitness center, no additional cost, but Spinning classes, in fitness center, are $15 + 25% tax/service charge. Biking to Jamaica videos, $25 + 25%. 2. I signed up for 2 dolphin experiences, one on Sunday and second on Tuesday, telling pre-arrival concierge that... More

Hotel and beach are beautiful and service at hotel is great. Steve Sowa (Executive Chef) was exceptionally helpful in accomodating us with our kosher food. Highly recommended.

We loved our stay at Half Moon. The hotel is clean and elegant, the beach isn't crowded and right out your room - which was great for us with a napping baby. The pools are nice and the kids' area was clean and safe. It's a great place for a family with children. I researched many hotels in the Caribbean,... More

Outstanding service, rooms were great, location was great, food was very good to great, the main pool is a little small but very nice, though there are many smaller pools located around the resort. Really hard to find any significant issues about the place. Definitely one of the nicer places I have been to in several years. I would describe... More

The hotel is beautiful. It has an old warm charm but with updated facilities. The beaches are great. The pools are outstanding. The food is excellent. But the main reason to go to this hotel is the service. The service is truly outstanding. Everyone makes you feel welcome. An outstanding resort.
