Wonderful time with friends! Stayed in a villa for 10. Out butler Jason in Villa 86 is the best guy and treated us like royalty. Out cook Lynette was the bomb. This place is the ultimate place to relax and just enjoy life! No need to ever leave the resort, plenty to do on site. But if you do want... More

I just returned for the fifth time from a wonderful nine days at Half Moon Bay. This property stands out among all Caribbean Hotels for its incredible setting, physical beauty, great accommodations, very good food and above all for its absolutely delightful staff. From Caswell in his bar at the beach to Daton at the waterfront to Stacey Ann in... More

Was here in May for my brother's wedding and a bunch of us can't wait to come back! Get the all -inclusive package - it's absolutely worth it! The Spa is one of the best we've been to, everything is clean and the staff were awesome! The resort is massive so I'd recommend either the cottages or Hibiscus suites which... More

We were at this resort in June: 2 adults and 2 kids (9 and 6). They were very welcoming from the start. The rooms were nice- but not great. We were in a royal suite, I think I would have preferred the hybiscus suites in the future. I think that we were in an older part of the resort. They... More

We rented one of the villas with a group of friends, and we could not be more pleased! This resort was STUNNING! Each villa came with a golf cart, which was an added bonus, so that you could travel around the resort. Every single staff member we encountered treated us so warmly, kindly and they were all so helpful. The... More

We were all excited about this Fabulous vacation that we all saved and paid for in advance, it cost thousands but our villa # 98 WASN'T a home away from home, instead it was a nightmare.

We came here for a wedding and stayed a few more days. I loved our view every morning of the ocean it was beautiful. The room was very spacious and I loved the bathroom. The spa was wonderful too. If you want some great jerk chicken take a short walk 1 mile to Scotchies it is so good and delicious.
