While checking in, I heard someone ask someone else why they chose the Half Moon instead of one of the many all inclusive resorts. His response was that he could find concrete and glass anywhere but wanted a classic Jamaican Luxury experience. The Half Moon provides luxurious rooms in a series of cottages built along long stretches of beach. An... More

I loved the place , the beach is fantastic , very quiet and very private . The resort is very quiet and has several activities and beautiful places . However, the service sometimes is slow and the food should be better. I would repeat :)

After much research, I chose Half Moon for a mother & daughter trip with my 15 year old. I wanted an outstanding place to create indelible memories. I was not disappointed. From the very start, the airport lounge staff and the shuttle driver set the standard; warm, organized, and accommodating people who are a pleasure to be around. The entrance... More

Villa 91 is a 7 bedroom Villa with a private pool, a cook (Denise), a room attendant (Sonia) and butler (Nigel). Our every need was met and always with a BIG, beautiful Jamaican smile. We started our mornings early and Denise always had some Blue Mountain Coffee perking away. Sonia kept an amazing eye on our rooms popping in while... More

if you are looking for a place to party and drink yourself silly then this is not the place for you. Instead this is an elegant service oriented high end resort, with excellent food and old fashioned customer service, where the guest is king. Wonderful beaches, pools, and the employee's are the best. This was our second time visiting Half... More
