My husband, two daughters and I just returned a few weeks ago from our 3rd trip to Half Moon. Year after year, we keep going back to the place that is our home away from home because there is nothing more beautiful nor peaceful than Half Moon. We have always stayed at the gorgeous Hibiscus suites, but this time we stayed at a luxurious Royal suite at the Royal Court as we needed a little more room with the addition of our infant daughter. With an almost-private pool (the pool is reserved just for the use of Royal Court families) in front of our suite and a huge patio in the side and back overlooking the sea, we could not have asked for a better suite. (Actually, one thing that I looked forward to during the late afternoons was to sit on our patio and enjoy the breathtaking view of the Caribbean Sea.)
What makes Half Moon truly special, however, is the impeccable service and wonderful staff. Sonia, our room attendant, accommodated our baby's nap schedule and cleaned our room when it was convenient for us. She even set up a small changing station for the baby and always made sure that the baby was comfortable and had her needs met. Sonia greeted us with a beautiful smile each day which made our stay even more enjoyable. We miss her! We also miss having our daily breakfast at the Seagrape Terrace for the delicious food and amazing view of the beach and sea. Chesoni, the hostess, always greeted us by name and always with a huge smile. And Evrol, our server occasionally, was always friendly with the baby. Last but not least, our older daughter loved Vanessa, server from the Italian restaurant, Il Giardino, who made her feel special and chatted with her each time we had dinner there. We miss the extraordinary staff!
Half Moon is the ideal place for a family vacation. With excellent restaurants, a fun Jamaican beach BBQ two nights per week, a luxurious spa, a beautiful beach, wonderful pools, an equestrian center, a children's village, plus golf, tennis and bike riding -- there is something for everyone. And all this on a gorgeous property -- Half Moon is paradise! We can't wait to go back next year!!!!
