I stayed at the Half Moon over 10 years ago and had fond memories of it and have been trying to find an excuse to go back ever since. Finally got the chance a couple months ago with my BFF and it is just as wonderful as I remember it.
The grounds are beautiful and there is a nice variety of restaurants. The food is good. If you don't drink I don't think the meal packages are worth it. Service was excellent!
We stayed in one of the cottages that walked right out onto the beach which offered an amazing view. We were away from the pool and the bar so away from the party and were quite content to wake up and walk out to sit in lounge chairs right outside our door. Soooo quiet and relaxing! (just what we were looking for)
Our room was very spacious with a sitting room and a nice large bathroom with a separate shower. The decor of the cottages is very quaint, charming, and full of character. My only complaint of our entire stay is that the mattresses in the room seem to be as old as the furniture so they're a bit lumpy. And at least in our room the "king" bed was really two twins pushed together. We didn't want a king bed anyway since it was me and my bestie so it was fine...but if I were there with my husband I would have been a bit annoyed. Also, there were no blackout blinds or curtains.
I can't wait to bring my family back to enjoy everything the Half Moon has to offer. Horseback riding, bike rides, snorkeling, kayaking, and a dolphin swim - all right on property! My daughter will be in heaven!
