Half Moon is a large compound meandering along beautiful beaches, and everywhere is very lush and comfortable. Very nice staff is warm and welcoming throughout. Resort is a spectacular get-away, and if you do want to venture out it is a short drive into town. Plenty of activities, and scuba on-site with great divemaster too!
