Just returned from a solo golf trip. This was my second time staying at the resort and I was really impressed with the new Eclipse section. Probably most noteworthy was the quality of the staff - Check in, bar, restaurant and Bell staff. Very responsive and connected....made my stay very easy and enjoyable. This attention certainly beats the large all inclusive resorts that are now all over the island. I have already recommended the resort to someone who asked about my stay and was looking for true 5 star accommodation in Jamaica. Will be returning shortly.

In July, we made our second trip to Half Moon; this time to stay at the new Eclipse section of the resort. I can not say enough how amazing this resort is! The entire resort is gorgeous and well maintained. The food at the restaurants was fantastic. But most of all, the staff and the service provided are just over the top amazing! Food: We ate at North Point several times for lunch and dinner as it is really convenient being located at the Eclipse pool. Wings, Burgers and Caprese sandwich were fantastic! You can explore some jerk spiced food but also have the comforts of a good old burger. We ate at Delmare one night and loved it! If the weather is nice, the sunset on the patio is fantastic. I had the Day Fisherman’s stew and loved it. Then there is the Sugar Mill….. if you don’t eat here you will have missed out. Colin was our server and we had not only great food, but a wonderful experience. Note: all restaurants have a kids menu even if you don’t see on online. Pool and Beach: this setting is truly stunning. The infinity pool opens up to the beach and I could just sit and stare at it all day long. Perhaps this was just part of the re-opening but the Eclipse pool was open to kids 6 and up (says adults only at on the website). Staff and Service: While all of the above will exceed your expectations, the staff and wonderful service set this resort apart from any place I have ever stayed. The bell desk guys are great and took care of everything we needed… even planned in advance taxi we needed to play golf at Cinnamon Hill. The ladies at check in were very accommodating not only at check in/out. The concierge was amazing… they scheduled reservations for our dinners, trip to Dunns River Falls and golf reservations. When there was a small scheduling issue the day of our trip to Dunns River falls, they dropped everything to make sure we were taken care of. And just over all… every where you walk, the staff is happy, engaging and very accommodating. This is by far the best Caribbean resort I have stayed. Yes there is a price to that but I felt it was worth every penny. For the last week, I have scrolled through our pictures day dreaming of coming back! Thank you so much for a great vacation!

An exquisite location will exceptional service. Our small group had Tramean as our butler during our stay and there are no wards to describe his impeccable service. He was VERY attentive and conscientious. He took very good care of all of us! His service alone will make Half Moon my top choice for my next trip to Montego Bay!

I have been staying at the Half Moon for over 10 years. I come back to Half Moon every single year because of the amazing staff and the incomparable service. The general manager Mrs. Chrichton, Sishauna at the front desk, Donhue and Romario at Lester's Bar, Teshia at North Pointe Pool, Wade at Concierge, Denisha and Primrose at the spa and Omar at the bell desk are just a few of the amazing people that make this my home away from home. The property is absolutely stunning and these people go out of their way to make your stay extremely special. Half Moon is the only place to be if you are wanting to take a trip to Jamaica. I will keep coming for the rest of my life!

Great service, clean accommodations, and professional interactions, should be expected as standard for any resort. Accordingly, when the standard is met , I do not find the need to write a review. However, when the bar is raised significantly above what is standard ,I find it a disservice to NOT report these findings. Such is the case for Half Moon Resort in Montego Bay. Being in the travel industry, I travel extensively for work , and for personal vacation. As such, I am quite discerning as to where I spend my time and money, which was more than well spent at Half Moon. While Half Moon offers luxury accommodations and beautiful spacious grounds, its true appeal lies within the many beautiful and friendly people working there. One can only imagine the selective process that was utilized to ensure Half Moons’ guests are left in the capable hands of these professionals. They seem to enjoy delivering a premier experience, paying attention to detail in too many areas to mention here, greeting us by name, and most importantly, doing it all with consistency. Covid protocols were followed by all of the staff members, making it possible to vacation while feeling safe. Our amazing journey began with a most unlikely category, reservations. When contemplating between Half Moon and another luxury resort we have visited many times, I came upon the reservations supervisor, Nadia. The ability to feel smiles without in-person interaction is an art, one that clearly, Nadia has mastered. The process was effortless! Nadia explained everything in detail, answering all of my questions which led to my decision to choose Half Moon. The next point of contact was at check-in. The greeter sets the tone as they represent the face of the resort. How lucky we were to have had Kristen in this role!! No matter how many times we passed the main lobby area, we were greeted by name, with wide eyes and warm smiles by Kristen, and her colleagues, Pat and Sishanna. My husband and I looked forward to daily brief, friendly, chats and laughs with these charming ladies! Getting around in such a large space can be daunting. However, the bellmen provided plentiful assistance, driving us in carts to wherever we wanted to go on the resort. They never failed to greet us and ask if we needed anything. We appreciated them all, but Orando was a definite standout! He appeared to delight at the opportunity to serve. The food was excellent! I think my husband and I enjoyed everything on the menu at Northpoint, where we met Pressley, a friendly mixologist extraordinaire!! We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing at the beautiful Eclipse pool, in large part, because of Teshia! We appreciated her beautiful smile ,and friendly demeanor, as she rendered outstanding service! I had the most AMAZING experience at their Fern Tree Spa!! It is not to be missed! Everything about Half Moon was exceptional, from the beautiful accommodations and grounds, to the friendly staff and impeccable service. I am eagerly looking forward to my next visit...It is quite simply, PARADISE!
