Our group has been visiting Half Moon the last 3 trips to Jamaica and every year this place keeps getting better and better. Owner has added a new attraction Calico Jacks bar/rest. on small island just off the beach. All we can say is .....WOW! so beautiful, peaceful with reasonable prices. We will for sure go back!!

take a drive to the Half Moon Beach any afternoon at about 3 - 4 pm and take the boat over to their new Calico Jack Bar and I promise you that "True Visionaries ", will immediately come to mind. Andrew and Tanya (former tourists 17 years ago) the owners must be complimented for their vision and courage. This bar/... More

I am not into AI, and all the hustle bustle activity of the beaches on Negril. I loved the quiet, eco friendly serenity of Half Moon Beach. We only spent an afternoon there but I would have been happy to go there every day. It was such a relief to be spared all the annoying vendors and megaphones for a... More

My wife and I just returned from a week in Jamaica. The person who we stayed with was showing us around the north side of the island and on the way back from Negril recommended that we stop and check out this place. Without a doubt, it was the best decision we made and could not leave without spending the... More

My husband and I have been staying here for over 10 years. The friendly and relaxing atmosphere is unbeatable. The property is beautiful and the beach is quiet. While the beach is quieter than any others nearby, the other travelers and locals are incredible to talk with...as they are probably people who are looking for same travel experiences or are...

I have never enjoyed a vacation more in my life than the times I have spent at Half Moon Beach. I have sunset pictures from this location in my cubicle at work and my bedroom at home so I can mentally return there every day. I was able to go there when the place was relatively new and everyone there... More

I have stayed all over Jamaica and this is the best beach spot I have found. Very secluded with none of the hassle of bigger tourists spots. A great place to stay if you want to relax and have the beach right outside your door. The food is really tasty with a level of sophistication and quality not usually found... More

My husband and I just returned from 2 weeks in Jamaica. We are not the all inclusive type so keep that in mind when reading the review. We divided our time between Half Moon Beach and Negril to get a bit of both worlds in Jamaica. The busy beach strip and the wonderful seclusion that is Half Moon Beach. We... More

Half Moon Beach is as close to Jamaican beach perfection as can be found. Away from the hustle and bustle of Negril, this protected cove with white sand beach, hammocks hanging, and chill vibe from the people really made for some memories we'll cherish forever. Great food from the restaurant including fresh lobster. The people running the place and living... More

Just got back from our trip to Jamaica where we stayed in the cabins at Half Moon Beach. It is very rustic, so if you are coming to Jamaica looking for a resort style stay and air conditioning, this isn't the place for you. The food here is AMAZING! I recommend the lobster, peppa shrimp wraps and kabobs! Best food... More
