This is a first-class, very old-style place to stay. I felt a bit like being thrown back into colonial times. There is a bit of charme de l'Ancienne about the property, but also the people staying there are not what you would expect for a Jamaica beach holiday. I guess the non-inclusiveness of booze helps with that. Staff are very...

From the beautiful accommodations to the delicious food and incredible staff this place is top notch. You are greeted like long-missed family, taken care of like royalty, and fed like kings and queens. The wait staff, bell men, bartenders, housekeepers, pool attendants, water sports staff, front desk clerks, and even the management of the restaurants were some of the most...

When I called Amex to choose between Half Moon and Round Hill, the agent there kept raving about how amazing Half Moon was, and to stay there. Against my better judgment from online reviews and pictures, I decided to give it a try. I had Amex arrange a private driver to pick us up from the airport. Upon arrival, when...

I love Half Moon Resort, especially the villas. It's a good retreat for families as well as honeymooners, and while it is not all inclusive, there are packages available. On property there is the Dolphin experience, beautiful beach, fantastic food. With the villas you get your own golf cart to ride around in. The staff is very courteous and helpful.

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.
