Having returned to Half Moon for a second time in February, it is evident why there are families, couples and individuals that have returned for as many as 10 years. Half Moon maintains the level of high-class, old-school luxury that made it so well-known in the 50s, drawing patrons such as the Kennedy family. The staff, including Stacian at the...

There may be glitzier resorts with more amenities but Half Moon has more than enough to offer plus old world class and charm. It's elegant enough to discourage the rowdy, partying folks that one encounters at many island resorts, while still catering to more discerning families and couples.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A destination in itself, set on 400 acres of manicured grounds with two miles of beachfront. We have 197 individually-appointed rooms and suites and 31 villas, most of which have views of the Caribbean Sea. All of our guests can enjoy the extensive facilities of this destination, which include the largest award-winning spa oasis in Jamaica, an 18-hole par-72 championship golf course, our own equestrian centre with 28 horses and the Sugar Mill, awarded as Jamaica's best restaurant. As a discerning traveller, you will enjoy the luxury of space and tranquility we have to offer.
