We just came back for a fantastic week with fiends at Half Moon. We were fortunate enough to stay in the family villas and enjoy the services of housekeepers and cooks, Angella and Tracy Ann.

We had a short stay at Half Moon and loved it. They have everything on site, tennis, gym, Olympic sized pool, kayaks, paddle boats, etc. Their service is impeccable, the rooms and hotel decoration are unique in style compared to other chain like hotels. The only disappointment was the carribean buffet we had which was grossly overpriced and pretty bland....

We spent a week at Half Moon before Christmas with our two children aged 19 and 17 and whilst there are things to praise we were generally disappointed with the quality of the resort, particularly given the prices charged. We have no objection to paying for high quality accommodation but given that Half Moon's prices are comparable to Carlisle Bay...

I have been coming to Half Moon for many years and our family loves it. One of the greatest things to do is get a massage (or many) while you are there.
