My wife and I just returned from a rejuvenating seven day holiday at Half Moon. It was 'just what the doctor ordered.' Beautiful property that is as enormous as it is quaint and quiet. The beaches and Caribbean are perfect. An abundance of staff will go out of their way to take care of you--always kind and gentle. We used bicycles to cover the expanse---something we are used to doing since we live in Manhattan and made the trip more enjoyable. Spa is first rate. Tennis pros are always available to hit ( Hard courts are do for a repaving). Food was very good. We went all inclusive which is the way to go.
Two asides. 1. We would describe the HM as a luxury resort in Jamaica rather than a Jamaican luxury resort. Although the flavor is Jamaican the feel is more staid British Colonial. 2. HM is a family resort, which means there will be children. IT IS PERFECT FOR FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN. We did not mind the kids but others might.
Plan to return...quite possibly with friends and take a villa.
