All I can say is we can't wait to go back! My husband and I with our two children (13 and 11)stayed at the Half Moon in August. From the moment we arrived we knew we had found the resort from us. Every member of staff were friendly and welcoming. The staff seem delighted to have you stay with them. They treat you like their friend not as a guest and yet there is no obsequiousness. We stayed in an Oleander Suite which gave us a room downstairs for the kids with their own bathroom and a kitchen and a room and bathroom for us upstairs. Although the furnishings are a little tired(particularly compared to the furnishings in the Royal Suites) (and my only criticism would be please change the shower head in the upstairs bathroom) the room is perfectly equipped, very clean (our maid Tracy Ann was a joy) and a brilliant location. We had bicycles at our disposal for the week and this was a brilliant way to get around the resort as it is large. It also gave our kids the freedom they crave and because the resort is so safe, we were happy to let them cycle off to meet their friends and have time away from us. The facilities are superb. We swam with the horses which was an incredible experience and also swam with the dolphins - also an incredible experience. The kids also went snorkelling. However most of the time we spend around either our pool or the swim up bar pool where the bar staff were amazing - making very wicked cocktails in the afternoon!!! All the restaurants we visited were excellent. Having 6 to choose from plus the Friday night beach bbq enables guests to really get a good variety of food and everywhere the quality of the food; choice of dishes and presentation was excellent. I have already emailed reservations checking availability and prices for next year!! We really can't wait to go back.
