Just returned from paradise not referring only to Jamaica but the FANTASTIC Half Moon,A Rock Resort(love the tag line)After reading previous reviews, so many wonderful accolades have been written,and rightfully deserved.As guests who have visited several times,we are amazed at the level of warmth and sophistication of the staff,hats off to management for maintaining the balance of Jamaican hospitality and International"Savoir- Faire"
Personal experience,it starts with Reservations,Reservations,Reservations.Please indulge me,my "Dynamic Duo"are Madame Jackie G.and Gwendolyn Mc.They return EVERY e-mail promptly and even my occasional frantic phone call.Not forgetting Ms.Simone M(whose smile should advertise toothpaste!!)and the front desk staff who really set the mood for the vacation.Cuisine is wonderful,even the children approve. What can I say the the entire resort is kid friendly.Sugar Mill and Christopher Golding(World Class Chef)who after this trip we have Knighted with the order of "Par Excellence"is an event not to be missed.His sous-chef(wish I could remember her name)made probably the best escovitch(local pan fried stew) fish I have tasted.I know it sounds "cliche",but it really feels like you are there to do nothing,think nothing and feel everything.Can't wait to phone the Dynamic Duo again!!!
