Our stay has been absolutely amazing! The grounds, the service and the views are perfect! We plan on coming back as much as possible! Two of our favorites are Toni Ann and Seychel. Amazing servers. We will miss them and the feel of a home away from home.
Amazing week at this updated resort. The staff adds a special touch going above and beyond to make sure our stay was relaxing and enjoyable. Toni-Ann, Caswell, Sashiel, and Sashia were excellent, and all took great care of us. We look forward to going back soon!
We just spent a week at Half Moon and absolutely loved everything about this place. The beach and the food are spectacular but was what was most special was the graciousness of all the staff! Toni Ann and Sachiel were so friendly, attentive, and welcoming – they took great care of us! They were just delightful and so wonderful to us. Also, I felt so lucky that Curtis and Conroy as well as some other staff lifeguards were able to help us. I lost my AirPods in the water but found them with their help! We highly recommend the Founders Cove/Cedar bar beach area. Also Brittney in the gift shop was super helpful and kind. Thank you to all the staff for making it so wonderful for our group. Hope to see you next year!
We were here 8 years ago and loved it then, and this trip only made us love it that much more. They continue to invest in their property and it shows. It's visually beautiful and yet it feels comfortable and relaxed. It's an incredibly unique hotel in that it looks and feels more boutique-y yet it has I'm guessing at least a mile or 2 of private beach access, multiple pools, and different options for meals. It's a mix of traditional colonial Jamaica that has blended a newer section made up of Caribbean island cool but a little more modern. The best part is that there isn't a building more than 2 stories so I think that adds to the boutique-y feel. With the 3 different pools and at least 4 different beach front areas you can achieve privacy and that "away feeling" and not have a person within ear shot. The grounds are immaculately kept. I mean immaculate. We knew too because they have bikes and golf carts so you can get around the entire property so easily. The spa is absolutely lovely including a private pool where you can lounge for hours after your massage. I took a yoga class that was amazing. I felt incredibly peaceful after. We also had a sound bath (singing bowls) that my whole family did and all 7 of us were genuinely blissed out. Amazing offerings. What we truly loved as well was the service. Every, single person was helpful, kind, and made you feel welcomed. Whether you were at the bars/restaurants, at the beach or pool, or riding around on your bike every smiled and said hello. This trip we stayed with our family in one of the villas (99) where Gary, Joy, and Euclette took truly amazing care of us. By the end they felt like part of our family. Gary is the kindest and most helpful person. He was always right there and had such a calm demeanor. The last night he created a beautiful dinner right on the beach for us. And Joy...we felt spoiled and so taken care of. Her food was the food of Jamaican dreams - curry chicken, lobster, plantains, black pepper soup, festival...I'm missing it as I type. :( Euclette always kept our room so clean and never missed a spot. Linval took care of the pool multiple times a day which we appreciated because it was windy while we were there. It's this kind of true care and kindness that makes this like no other place. Thank you Half Moon! We will be back.…
We stayed in Founders Cove, a place I had memories of staying when I was a kid. The beach is secluded, quiet, and blissful. We were treated everyday by the amazing Toni-ann & Sachiel, Antonio & Dwayne who were always checking in and providing incredible service to us. They made us feel very special and well attended! Highly recommend an evening spent at Lester’s Bar for a smeralda cocktail (delish gin cucumber martini) or a spicy pineapple daiquiri (served up - spicy marg vibes) followed by Delmare. The food was insanely good. A standout for me was the special swordfish risotto - my favorite thing all trip, but all of the seafood served there is fantastic. You can’t visit without a romantic night at Sugar Mill. A short drive across the road and sitting high above the golf course - the ambience is unmatched. Candlelit, peaceful, and incredible service. Finish the night off with a rum tasting, trust me. I was super pleased with my experience at fern tree spa. Mitzie is an outstanding masseuse and I can’t wait to come back to see her again. She did a custom treatment for me and it was transformative. We also spent an afternoon on the golf course with Desmond, our caddie. He was so much fun and extremely knowledgeable of the course. We will also be requesting him for our next round upon return! Thank you Half Moon for the best week we could have asked for.…
Fern Tree Spa is my favorite spa anywhere. I've been to Half Moon annually for over twenty years and a trip to the spa is always a highlight. All the employees are skilled professionals and I can always count on Karlene S. to take excellent care of me. My visit this weekend was amazing as always. Pam P
A truly beautiful well maintained property. Staff well trained, polite and professional. Rooms are spectacular and so are the facilities. A testament to the management of this timeless property. WELL DONE
Words can not adequately express my love for Half Moon! . I have travelled to most of the Caribbean “Top Resorts”, stayed at Jamaica’s Sandals, Round Hill, Secrets, Hyatt, Iberiostar, Moon Palace, etc..and Half Moon still remains my favorite! The staff is so so attentive, the amount of private beach (2 miles) still wows me. The food is “Top Notch” the drinks are plentiful. You are able to experience a remote, private vacation or choose to Join others at the “main” Eclipse beach and bars and feel like it’s a party! Note: MEAL PLANS: We opted to NOT purchase the meal plans and saved $200/day. Trust me, we ate and drank as if we were at an all-inclusive. So, I would consider skipping the meal plan purchase. ACCOMMODATIONS: We did purchase the founders cover ocean suite that included breakfast (which was cheaper than staying at Eclipse and 200 sq ft bigger and just prettier- we have stayed at Eclipse in the past). Eclipse may seem like it is in the middle of the property but the rooms are located at the very end of all the amenities, so you need a golf cart or bike 90 % of the time. FAMILY VS ADULTS: Although this resort has an awesome kids club, nanny service etc, I do feel it is geared more towards adults vs family, which was perfect for us! (We have 5 kids and loved not sharing our space with children:) HALF MOON is definitely in the top 2 of all of Jamaica and TOP 5 of all the Caribbean!…
Perfection! We hope to go back many times! This was a 50th birthday trip with 11 college friends and it was the perfect place with amazing beach and pool set up and excellent choices for meals and drinks. We rented a Rose Hall 7 bedroom garden view villa and LOVED being all together and were completely taken care of by our butler Waiyaki, cook Janice and house cleaner Joy. Can’t rave about Waiyaki enough.
Our trip to Half Moon was fantastic. The resort is gorgeous.Food and service fantastic! We stayed in one do the villas, the staff, Lucille, Rennis and Nurshette were the BEST! We were well taken care of, they were all so kind and courteous. Attending to any request/help we needed. We will request them again upon our return!
