We recently held a small family event at Half Moon and stayed in a 6 bedroom Royal Villas on the ocean front with close friends from Spain and the US with their children and our infant.
Simply said, what an amazing experience and absolute fulfillment of our every whim. No matter how diverse the request, how minor the detail the Half Moon team delivered excellence at every touch point with the hotel employees.
We were holding our son's "blessing" and requested the pre arrival concierge to arrange Rastafarian minister and a reggae band for the event along with the regular logistics of organizing the other necessities required. Merricka who manages the team there took personal charge of putting this complex event together and maintained regular information flow, provided ideas and went the extra mile to fulfill our wishes.
The one single thing that put this experience on our top list however was the excellent staff. Our team of Anthony, Lezetia and Angela could not have been better. I highly advise requesting them (as we did) if you go to Half Moon although I am sure all the Villa staff are excellent, this team of three were simply amazing. They prepared amazing meals, left us without a care and made it so difficult to leave after being spoiled by their service for a week.
The only complaint we would have is the villas need to be modernized to better represent what a Rock Resorts experience should be. We accepted the somewhat dated construction and hardly noticed it during the stay as the overall experience from the staff, location and simple pleasures made it hardly noticeable.
We will be back...
