No complaints at all ; very efficient and friendly staff. Sea temperature almost like a hot bath tub, but very pleasant. We had no rain and no storm. Shuttle service well organized and punctual.. A wonderful place to be recommended!

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.

We had a nice visit to the Half Moon Resort. The grounds are well kept and the rooms/Villas were also very nice. The beaches and the food were also very good. In fact, the only reason I did not give this place 5 stars was because of the following reasons. Our Villa was supposed to come with housekeeping and a... More

We have visited Half Moon for years because of the outstanding service, beautiful beaches, and variety of facilities and activities for our family. Though an expensive trip, the waterfront rooms and dining ambiance make it well worth it. It's one of my favorite places in the world.
