I recently attended a conference at the Half Moon Resort, and it was hands-down the best professional development experience ever! First, the conference participants stayed in the villas. We enjoyed breakfast together every morning. This setting made networking ideal. Not only did I make meaningful connections with professionals in my field, I also made friends. Second, the facilities were outstanding....

I really enjoyed my stay at this resort. The staff and residents were friendly. Complimentary drinks upon entry to the front desk. The junior suite was way more roomy that I expected, and the beach was easily accessible and beautifil. I would definitely stay here on my next trip.

I didn't have extremely high expectations for Jamaica, but Half Moon proved me wrong. I would come back to this resort in a heartbeat. It is large (400 acres) but doesn't feel overwhelming. We were given a beautiful oceanview junior suite on Sunrise Beach - very well appointed. The shower was very small, but the enormous tub made up for...

Wow ! If you don't like this place you don't like class. Everything is top drawer. Just wish I could afford to bring the family here (this was a business trip).
