This review is a little late as we visited Half Moon in Sept/Oct 2012. It was our tenth visit and probably our most enjoyable. At this time of the year the resort is quiet(which we like) although the downside is that our favourite restaurant the Sugar Mill is closed at this time of the year. We stayed in the West Cottages (133) and loved the suite and location which was right on the beach. My wife was on the Spa plan whilst I was on a Golf plan which both represent excellent value for money. The service as ever was exemplary and it was great to meet up again with so many old friends who have looked after us in the twelve years we have been going to Half Moon. We dined mainly at the Seagrape but also enjoyed the Italian when open. We also tried the "pub" which has been renamed Robbies Kitchen and had a very enjoyable lobster evening there. Our visit coincided with West Indies winning the Worlld T20 cricket which sparked much excitement and celebration at the cedar bar. Elijah even managed to find a regular supply of mint for our mojito's and Fitzgerald and Casewell kept us topped up and entertained. It was also nice to see Radical and his fellow musicians back to serenade us as the sun went down. There are too many of the staff who all provided brilliant service to mention them individually but in particular would like to mention Donnine at the swim up bar , my caddy Norman for his patience and support of my misfiring golf game. The new golf pro Spencer gave me a couple of great tips . From the Seagrape we would like to mention Nadia, Everett and Glenroy and Derek all part of a great team. From the Spa my wife enjoyed being looked after by Sophia her spa therapist. As we sit here on a cold wet miserable January evening we can but look forward to our next visit to Half Moon with our family this coming July. Can't wait.
