We traveled to Half Moon at the end of April 2013 for my husband's work. The resort is very large and very quiet (I was surprised how little we saw other guests). The grounds are immaculate and you have access to sign out bikes to explore. We stayed in one of the Hibiscus Suites which are duplex style: one upstairs and one downstairs. You walk into the living room/bedroom and it includes a large bathroom/dressing room with oversize tub. The suite also has a large patio not 20 steps from the beach. There is a small fridge that you can empty and and your things. We did not partake in any of the activities such are horseback riding or dolphin swimming, but we were told it was fun. Staff are extremely friendly and easy to get to know: Miss Dan at the front desk and Orville at the bar are great!
Since we were attending a corporate event, we had access to different dinners etc., but I would recommend this resort for any vacation or corporate event.
Most comfortable bed ever!
Hibiscus Suites are great and quiet
Never ran our of hot water
Friendly Staff always to be found
Very quiet and relaxing - if that is what you like
Buffet Breakfast and food in general is excellent for Jamaican resorts
Wonderful golf course
Pools and hot tub 20 steps from Hibiscus Suites.
Lots of walking to get anywhere - beware tall heels!
Very expensive, get the all inclusive plan! (Drinks were around $12 each!)
Beach hurts to walk bare feet and not a lot of swimming areas
The beach sand quality is the only reason why I didn't give 5 stars - and this is not something the resort can control.
