We stayed at the Half Moon Resort from February 8 to 11, 2007. We received an upgrade to a Hibiscus room (direct ocean front). The room was gorgeous as was the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful... from the bartenders and waiters to the beach attendants. The Good Life Plan covered all dining expenses, and we found the... More

I stayed at the Half Moon in June of 2003, so it was very hot. The rooms were very hot. One night we were sleeping and woke up to find a lizard climbing all over our walls. There were many fun activites that kept us busy like Swimming with the dolphons, biking, golfing, horsebackriding and many more. Overall it was... More

This hotel is truly a tropical paradise with all the lavish bells and whistles of luxury. Even in December the weather was fantastic. Sunny and hot enough to tan and go swimming in warm tropical waters. I was lucky enough to get an amazing room right on the beach through skyauction so I paid a small fraction of the normal... More

My husband and I booked a last minute getaway to the Half Moon through Orbitz and it was just great! We stayed three nights in a deluxe room (the least expensive option!) and had fantastic weather, although it rained a bit the day we left. The room was large and clean and the a/c worked well. The resort is a... More

My wife and I just returned from a week at the Moon. Fantastic! Deluxe room with a great ocean view. Clean and well maintained. It is a huge complex that can be easily explored by renting a bike from the front desk (really a must). Excellent staffing couldn't do enough for us. Food was a bit pricey. Choose not to... More

We got married at the Half Moon in July. We stayed from July 19- 30. The resort is absolutely beautiful. We did not use the pool a lot because it was a little far from our room (Royal Suite) but we went the beach everyday. The service was excellent! The food was good except for the Italian Restaurant. We had... More
