My wife and I stayed here in early September for our honeymoon. We were in the Hibiscus Villas which were out of this world. The views from the balcony are breathtaking and you can hear the sea lapping gently from your bed. The room was extremely spacious. Overall the facilities at halfmoon are excellent. It has a beautiful sense of history with mature gardens, lovely beaches and it is peaceful and serene. It is picture perfect throughout.
The staff were very friendly although a few did let the place down on a couple of occasions although I can understand it is difficult for a place of this size to control everything perfectly. The main disappointment was the food. Other than breakfast which we had served on our balcony every room, the food was quite disappointing. Additionally it is worth checking what restaurants were open as we visited during off season and quite a few of the restaurants advertised were shut. Finally taxis from the resort were very expensive. $80 to the town and back. Other than that. Excellent resort and I feel if they can just sort out some little details it will be 100% perfect.
