I recently visited the Half Moon as the location of a business meeting and was very disappointed. A total of 7 co-workers went with a booking of 5 rooms. All of us ran into problems of some sort or another. In one room the A/C didn't work and the person slept an entire night in the warm room until she was moved to another room the next day. Three of us had ants in our rooms all the time. No one's TV worked quite right. All of us had discrepencies in our bill upon check out. We were billed twice for the same meal as well as for items that we did not use out of the mini-bar. It was obvious my room hadn't been painted in years and the patio doors wouldn't close completely. The showers often varied in temperature. There were days that our rooms were not made up until sometime after dinner if at all for that day. We found the food nothing to right home about and very over priced. I've stayed at much nicer hotels for less money.
We did enjoy the free pool table in the Oleander Terrace and well as the general atmosphere of just being away from work and by the ocean. The staff were mostly very pleasent. I did see one of the most beautiful sunsets of my life one evening while sitting on the beach.
Make sure to bring bug spray with you everywhere since we all returned with multiple bites.
