The property is one of the best I have been to. Maintenance, gardens, beach... everythinh was great. The suites (in Hibuscus) could not be better. You must consider that it is a "tourist trap". Food is very expensive and there are not many options. It is good , but not extraordinary. Drinks are very expensive.

Great area and outstanding location but the bedrooms, dining area, and kitchen need upgrading and were misleading for the price that we paid. The butler and maid service was the best that I have ever experienced and my family really enjoyed having them around. We could not have asked for a better team to take care f us. The cook tried her best but as we are full-blown Jamaicans, we enjoyed mostly the breakfast meals as we dined together as a family. Recommend each room has a carpet at the bedside due to floors being slippery, bathtubs have mats, better serving utensils, and larger drinking glasses. Need to offer medical insurance as their medical facility does not accept foreign insurance such as Medicare and Tricare. Overall the stay was a great treat but the price could have been a bit lower.

Recently spent 8 days at the Villas of Rose Hall with approximately 120 people total with 16 in our villa. We were blessed to have such an amazing crew that went overboard to accommodate us. Butler: Rennis Rose was extremely attentive and made sure we all were taken care of each day as well as through the night….enjoyed conversation with him as he was extremely knowledgeable. Maid: Lucille Powell made sure that all off our needs were taken care of and that was a lot with that many people. Chef: Veronica Dawkins was simply a delight. As hot as it was, she was constantly in the kitchen cooking any and all that was requested…..we simply can’t say enough about her spirit.

Everything at half moon was great. The staff was accommodating to our every need. Butler Young was the best I have ever had. He had stories that were of a wiseman. He taught us about the island and they many leaves that we used for tea. He told us about the many benefits of the teas. Our cook Ms. Esmie was faboulous and made everything we wanted.

Butter Young was our Butler for the Villa, hands down the best and most knowledgeable you will come across. I highly recommend requesting his services. You will in no way be disappointed. Your request is his demand

I went to Half Moon with a group of ladies for a retreat. We had a wonderful staff in our villa including butler Young. They made sure we had everything we needed and more. The resort was beautiful and I look forward to visiting again.

My husband and I spent a week at Eclipse in December of 2021 and had a wonderful time. The resort is beautiful and peaceful and you feel as though you have this piece of heaven all to yourself. We knew we had to share this special place with friends. Fast forward to July of 2022 and we return bringing another couple with us. We are told that they are at 90% capacity and still we have the beach to ourselves. At no point does the resort feel the least bit crowded. Nope, no going out early in the morning to save a lounge chair at the beach or pool, it's all yours!!! If you want loud music at the pool and entertainment staff coercing you into dance contests or beach volleyball, this isn't the place for you. If you want an opportunity to unwind in a place where service is unmatched, the beach is perfection, the staff is the purest form of professionalism, and the food is exceptional.... this is where you need to land! A shout out to Gwendolyn who helped us with our room reservations and Carol the concierge who helped with our dinner reservations. Our meal at SugarMill was out of this world. The oxtail ravioli and the seafood curry was to die for. We thought about going back the next night and ordering the same thing. Glad we didn't as we would have missed out on Delmare. Wow, just the atmosphere alone is a reason to come. Sitting outside with a view of the ocean and the palm trees while twilight creeps in is simply stunning. ....and the food, lets not forget the food...amazing. The chef came out to ask if we enjoyed our meal. When he mentioned that he is from Italy I asked if he's ever had gnocchi on the menu...my favorite! He said he has not but offered to make it for me if I wanted to return the following night, UH YEAH! He then asked my husband and our friends what they would like....SERIOUSLY! We returned the next night to the most incredible, curated just for us meal I've ever had. WHO DOES THAT? Claudio the chef, thats Who! He and his staff were so happy to prepare this family style meal far us. It was a mix of Italian and Jamaican food that covered our entire table. I can't even begin to explain the different dishes, jerk lobster, curried goat, gnocchi with beef short ribs, grilled octopus, oxtail...and more! We've been home for a week and we are still talking about it. A drink at Lesters before and after dinner is a must, excellent cocktails and staff here. Watching the sunset at Cedar Bar also a must, unbelievable! And if you see Julio, ask him for a fresh mango, he'll pick you one, or two, or three! :) And Joy at Haywards, LOVE HER! ..... always waiting for us in the morning to lead us to our special table! Overall a memorable and hard to beat vacation. If you want to feel pampered and allow the worries of the world to slip away for a few days, or weeks, look no further. Our friends can't stop talking about it. We'll definitely be back, with more friends in tow!!!!

I hosted a retreat with 7 people attending. We had the best time at Half Moon. Half Moon is beautiful and everyone was so kind. Our staff in the villa was amazing and welcoming. Butler Young was the best. Not only was he of service he was very educational. Taught us a lot about the healing benefits of particular plants and fruits. Highly recommend staying at The Half Moon.

Our family stayed at oceanside Villa 86 for five nights in July 2022 and it was absolute bliss. In all honesty, I cried when we had to leave. My interactions with Half Moon began before we arrived as I was planning a surprise 39th birthday for my husband. Thank you so much Audrey and Patrice for all your help in securing the Calypso band, fire dancer, DJ, and the cake. I appreciate you both for taking the time to listen to my needs. Our butler, Jason, was amazing. He went above and beyond to ensure we had a great trip. From securing local patties, bringing in fresh lobster, to making the BEST piña coladas we ever had, to ensuring my husband’s 39th birthday was epic. Not to mention my 14 month old daughter absolutely loved him. She would look for him each day and he was so kind and playful with her. Special shout out to Akeen, a butler in training, who was so helpful! Our cook, Patricia, made some amazing dishes and the food was a big reason why we loved the trip. Ask for her brownies! Our maid, Karen, has to be one of the sweetest people in the world. She literally felt like family. She was always on top of keeping our rooms clean and steaming our clothes. LJ was awesome as well and maintained our pool and always met us with a smile. The villa was amazing but so were the grounds. The Eclipse infinity pool and beach were a dream. The pool is something out of a movie and the beach was serene and super shallow which allowed us to sit in it with our baby. All attendants were so helpful and drink/food service was extremely quick. I fell in love with the jerk chicken quesadilla. Joy (Ms. Joy To The World) and the other vendors by the beach were so sweet as we drove by daily on our golf carts. We bought a bracelet for our baby which they resized and a beautiful basket for our house. The spa was everything and then some. My husband and I had a couple’s massage with oils which was unreal. I highly recommend! We hope to come back to Half Moon every year with our family and allow ourselves a week to disconnect from the rat race and connect with each other. -M

Our stay at this resort was absolutely perfect. The Villa staff of Denise, Rennis & Luclle took this vacation to another level. From the extraordinary culinary delights Denise made morning, noon & night to Rennis being Johnny on the spot, catering to our every need. Rennis is the mayor of Half Moon so if he can't get it, it doesn't exist. Lucille keeps the villa nice & tidy, clothes washing every day. This is the A team!! Big ups to all the staff at Half Moon/Eclipse.
