We stayed in a Hibiscus suite. Room is spacious, biggest bathroom ever and beach 12 steps away from patio. We had one dinner at Sea Grape. Most enjoyed it, but some felt their food was underprepared. Sugar Mill was our favorite thanks to Herbert our waiter and the superb food. The El Giordano Italian restaurant was also excellent. Meal plan is a must!

We are just planning a return trip and realised that we didn't ever leave a review!

The fact we're going back says it all... It is expensive but not much more than other 5 star properties and the difference is special.

You feel like someone special here like as if you're priveliged.
The furniture and style is classic heritage.
The food is good, not too fancy , just exactly right for each meal.
The meal/drink packages make for economical extravagance!

If you can afford to go here,,do it, you'll never regret it.
They still send us a card every year and I have kept my room card from the stay. Silly but it's how they make you feel. Part of the heritage.
We prefer the cottage areas at the back of the beach. There are all room types here. The hibiscus suites are amazing.

Just go....and get an all inclusive plan, includes Mini Bar and Champagne (in the small bottles all day if you like !)

The half moon bay resort villas are designed perfectly for a large travel group. The villas are private for couples yet the mansions unite families in a homie setting. Each Villa comes with a private pool, chef, butler, and housekeeper... therefore you are spoiled and enjoying vacation to its max.

My wife and I went for 4 days to attend a friend's wedding. Many from Boston attended. The guests all shared 3 to 5 bedroom villas which was fun. Each villa had its own kitches, living room, dining room and pool, with outside dining area. Each villa also had its own maid and cook. You could have the cook prepare meals for you at the villa and they would buy the supplies at the local on site grocery store. This was fun, and the meals were excellent, but quite costly for two. If the meals would have bene for many more, it might have been more economical, but it ended up costing signifiantly more then eating out. The resort is huge, and you needed a golf cart to get around. The beach was suprisingly small, and somewhat insufficent for a resort of this magnatude. The food at the restaurants was good, but not great. We had a great time during our stay becuase of the occasion.

Best resort food I have ever had. If you are a foodie, this is the vacation for you. Maybe not the best food I have had in my life, but probably the best while traveling.

The service is better than most in Jamaica. Everything about this resort is near-perfect. This is probably the best resort I have been to.

The spa was nice. Yoga was good.

You get what you pay for and here you both pay and get a lot.
