I had reason to stay here after having an operation at the Hospiten across the road while waiting to fly home. As soon as I walked in to reception everything was calm and the view straight through to the sea was amazing, I was only there for 2 nights but I think that time made a difference to my recovery....

My wife and I spend six wonderful days at Half Moon. Very easy place to like. Staff were great and the location is hard to beat. Worth the extra money to experience Jamaica again. The grounds are spacious and good views all around.

We thoroughly enjoyed a 3-night stay at the Half Moon resort with a garden-view 2-story villa. Comfort abounded with king size bed for my wife and I, while our teenagers each had twin beds. This is one of the few luxury resorts in the Montego Bay area which allows children and provides activities for them and a kids' club. The...

Our company puts us up here when coming through Jamaica. We've been here three times and it's spectacular! The villas are literally on the beach. The sunsets, the massages over the water...you have to see it in person. Worth every penny!
