We looked forward to our 10 days at half moon. The room we got was smelling of damp and was very dated, even the tv was an old big model, not flatscreen. But when complainibg the staff was most accomodating and gave us a much better room infront of the sea, very nice of them. There is a small beach at the resort, most is rocky, stoney sea front though so if you, like us, like to walk along a beach strolling in the sand it is not possible. When asking for a taxi to go to the centre of Mobay we were told a price of around 80 dollars, we stopped one on the street for 6 dollars. Not such a good feeling! Ofcourse hotel taxis are always a bit extra but not more than 10 times the price. The restaurants were all good. The gym well equipped but so cold from air condition that we had to give it a miss. All in all, friendly staff, a bit dated and no paradise beach although they do have a long sea front.
