The property itself is beautiful. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Our room in Cottage #2 was beautiful, clean and a great view. However, our original room in cottage #9 was unacceptable due to the fact that there was VERY little privacy because it was right next to the lifeguard stand and the closest building to the lobby area....

Location of resort and its beach and water offering is really great. Property for the most part is clean and pleasant. Our room was nice...it was an upgrade. It was also a renovated room. May want to ask for a renovated room because we heard that some rooms are dated and tired. Food was better than we expected. The Italian...

Having grown up in the area I knew that a classy MoBay wedding in a non-rushed, upscale surrounding limited serious consideration to 3 properties. The Half Moon team was by far the most reasonable, friendly and professional of the sites we considered. We experienced outstanding service from the planning stages through execution on the wedding day. Tashane, Shanoya and Trevolyn...

We visited as a family vacation and stayed in a large villa. The villa was large, well kept and the three in staff were wonderful. The facility is safe and comfortable. The beaches are excellent. Easy to walk or bike to wherever you need to go.

My husband and I have made three trips to Half Moon and enjoy it more every time we come. We love the island vibe of the resort. Who wants to have to take an elevator to their room when in Jamaica?

This was our second visit to Jamaica. First was a stop at Ocho Rios on a cruise. Montego Bay is a magical spot with crystal clear water and copious vegetation. The resort itself was pristine in all areas, maintained by a staff of 700! The service was impeccable. The only big negative was the food. The breakfast buffet was copious...

I loved this place for the isolated beaches away from the families who were there. It is not a party animal kinda of place, there are families and there are couples. It has a bit of Old Style English feel, the staff was really friendly. It wasn't crowded, it wasn't loud, it was relaxing. The beach front is long, as...

This is a beautiful hotel on 400 acres. Our one bedroom royal suite was literally steps from the beach.

When I landed at MBJ, and went over to the greeting area for the Half Moon Resort (HMR), I could instantly tell that this was a finer type of service.

A destination in itself, set on 400 acres of manicured grounds with two miles of beachfront. We have 197 individually-appointed rooms and suites and 31 villas, most of which have views of the Caribbean Sea. All of our guests can enjoy the extensive facilities of this destination, which include the largest award-winning spa oasis in Jamaica, an 18-hole par-72 championship golf course, our own equestrian centre with 28 horses and the Sugar Mill, awarded as Jamaica's best restaurant.
