I had heard nothing but great things about Half Moon in Montego Bay, Jamaica. So my expectations were fairly high going into the property. I wasn't disappointed.
The staff was very courteous and professional. The grounds including gardens, numerous swimming pools, and private beaches were very well kept. My favorite amenities include the terrific high-end spa, hot-tubs, and the olympic size swimming pool for doing laps.
The suite I had was called a "Junior Suite". But there wasn't anything small or "low shelf" about it. The suite was well decorated with many nice touches here and there. To my surprise the advertised in-room WiFi actually worked! And the speed was more than adequate for checking email and web browsing in bed with my iPad. Well of course, I'm the iPad guy: http://bit.ly/kshpress
The only knock (which can be easily remedied): The restaurants did not offer particularly exceptional food or dinning experience - for the price. This resort hotel (unlike too many in Jamaica) is not "all inclusive". So you're free to dine on the property or go out and sample the local cuisine.
I would highly recommend the Half Moon in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Please see the photos I've attached. Happy travels!
