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

Wow, wow, wow! If you are considering a venue to host your wedding in Jamaica - Half Moon is MUST to include on your list. We visited in early May of 2016 and were blown away with the hotel grounds, accommodations, and most importantly, service that we received while there. Just to put this review in perspective, we did months... 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

Just what the doctor ordered!!! Thank you Half Moon for extending such wonderful courtesies to me. The service, the staff and the food was excellent. It definitely felt like a home away from home. Listening to the ocean in the morning from my balcony was like heaven on earth! The Hibiscus Suite was AMAZING!!!!

Just returned from our 6th visit to the Half Moon and are extremely sad to have left. As always, our stay at the Half Moon was wonderful and we look forward to returning sooner rather than later.

Beautiful grounds and very well kept. Family atmosphere with an exceptionally friendly staff who waited on your every need. Rooms were luxurious and very comfortable. Beautiful views! The food was delicious with a few restaurants right on site. Beautiful beaches and plenty to do right on the property. One of the nicest properties in Jamaica and highly recommend!
