We spent 5 days at the resort and I have to say it was our best vacation EVER! The resort is awesome but what made the stay so memorable was staying in a villa with your own cook, maid and butler. They were beyond amazing. Rochester Wray our butler went above and beyond taking care of us and was so... More

My husband and I recently returned from a trip with the Kia Service Elite group, where they put us up at this fabulous resort. We stayed in a villa with 6 other couples. We were skeptical at first but would not have wanted to stay anywhere else on the resort. The staff we had at the villa was incredible. The... More

Home from home with the comforts and facilities of a 5 star hotel. We were lucky enough to get a recommendation from our travel agent to stay at the Half Moon as we are keen golfers who appreciate good quality accommodation and dining, and we got much more than we bargained for. Half Moon is set in the most beautiful... More

We were in a villa. Our butler, Rohan, MADE our stay perfect. He accompanied us to the commissary and helped us choose the food and drinks for our talented cook, Joy, to prepare for us. He also coordinated our schedule to make sure we were able to fit in all our activities and dinner reservations....no task too small nor too... More

I spent 4 weeks at the Half Moon in January on their timeshare program, with my wife and many guests. Although not inexpensive, you get what you pay for. Two miles of unspoiled beautiful beaches, bicycles, fabulous dining and consistently excellent staff make this place a paradise. Golfers will especially be pleased with the Robert Trent Jones championship 18 hole... More

We just returned from our third trip to this resort. Before we discovered this place we traveled to many upscale Carribian resorts. There is no match to this one! Breathtaking beach, warm and welcoming staff, the best accomodations. They all work so hard to provide you with the best service, food, the cleanest rooms. Special thanks to the manager Shernette...

I have been to Jamaica 9 or 10 times, starting in the early 80's. There is a reason why this was the hangout in the Caribbean for Ian Fleming, Errol Flynn, Noel Coward and others. It is a beautiful place, but it is the undeveloped world which many tourists cannot handle. Yes, there are dangers and one must be vigilant,... More
