My wife and I just returned from spending a glorious week at the Half Moon resort. Everything about our time there was outstanding from our check- in (thank you Ruth Ann) to departure. Our accommodations were beautiful. Highly recommend staying in the West Cottages area--updated suite right on the most beautiful beach on the property and very close to all the restaurants.

Speaking of food, the variety of restaurants greatly exceeded our expectations. Literally every dinner was gourmet quality, with great selections especially for seafood. The breakfast buffet at the Sea Grape was awesome and quick. The lunches were very good and be sure to order room service on your patio/deck at least once. I highly recommend doing the all inclusive plan. It is well worth the extra cost and without it you will have severe price sticker shock (our average dinner bill was $250.00 with a couple of drinks each).

We were on a package the included golf which was also a good value. We played 5 days during our stay on three different golf courses within a ten minute shuttle ride. The Half Moon course is very nice--similar to a nice golf club, flatter and in nice shape. Our favorite course was White Witch which is an absolutely outstanding track with unbelievable ocean views on every hole. More challenging and lots of elevation change but a great experience, definitely one of the better courses I have ever played. Ask for Randy as your caddy-good guy and can read the tricky putts. The third course we played was Cinnamon Hill which was our least favorite course but still interesting.

What really made our stay special was the staff at the resort. To a person they went out of the way to make our stay special. Always looking to make sure your needs were met. We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and the staff went the extra mile on multiple occasions to make the date special for us. The people in Jamaica are very friendly to visitors.

You cannot go wrong in selecting Half Moon for your vacation. Great weather, beautiful resort, terrific accommodations, yummy food and wonderful staff. Can't wait to return. Enjoy!

We are seasoned travelers and have enjoyed a wide range of experiences at some very well respected resorts. Half Moon is by far the most outstanding Caribbean resort we have ever visited. From the grounds/facilities to the level of service, the quality of the food to the warmth and friendliness of the staff...there is nothing we were left wanting. This can all be epitomized by a conversation we had with a member of the staff. He actually anticipated what we wanted and his service reflected that. I said to him "It is like you read our minds" to which he responded with a warm, beautiful smile...."that's my job!!!" This place is outstanding! We cannot wait to go back!!!!

We returned to Half-Moon after several yearsand stayed in an upstairs unit overlooking the ocean. Our daughter married there almost 8 years ago. Our room was very quiet with only the sound of the waves to soothe us to sleep. Food and service staff were wonderful. So many different kinds of food prepared to perfection. Wonderful family atmosphere. Also great for a couple vacation. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Cottage 4 overlooking the ocean.

This is one of the best resorts to go to with a family or a group of friends. The "villa" experience is phenomenal and is like staying in your own home and the staff is incredibly nice and accommodating. Everything about it is 1st class from the time you arrive until you depart. I would go back any time!!

Room Tip: If you can afford it...stay in a villa

Dear Valued Guests:

Our goal is to exceed our guests' expectations at every opportunity, thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted you enjoyed a “Royal” experience; the Royal Villas accommodation is usually a ‘hit’ with our many valued clients. It truly offers a “home away from home” atmosphere. Thank you for complimenting the team – our staff are really the ones who learn the idiosyncrasies of our treasured guests and make each visit special.

Thank you for choosing Half Moon, we certainly look forward to welcoming you back ‘home’ in the not so distant future.

Best regards,

The Half Moon Team
