(Before I reference Half Moon, be warned that Montego Bay airport check in is a time consuming nightmare as is car rental)
Half Moon however is fabulous! Location is beautiful and perfectly cared for. Restaurants are great (particularly Sugar Mill and Il Giardino). We were in a Royal Suite in West Cottages which was a great location as we could easily walk to the main section of the hotel. The private pool was lovely and the suite beautiful.
The thing that makes the place so special is the lovely staff who were so kind and friendly (with a couple of exceptions at the Seagrape!).
We took our 18 month old baby and he was very welcome :). We were pleased with the real crib rather than the usual hotel pack n play.
Can't wait to return.
