Around 2005 we were there; twelve of us. Food was wonderful. The staff is great. They are treated kind of tough in that they are searched physically daily when they both enter and exit. My family thought highly of all of them. The resort is quite pleasant. The island is suffering from much violent crime.

Stayed: November 2016, travelled with family

Travelled to Half Moon with my wife and baby, and stayed 4 days. Hotel is beautiful and well maintained. The staff were friendly and courteous. They all went out of their way to accommodate special requests.

Like other reviewers, however, we were very put off by the price of, well, everything but the room. Meals, drinks, transportation and even coffee were just prohibitively expensive. We ended up having to buy groceries at the supermarket to make it work. In hindsight, we should have gotten an all-inclusive plan, so its partially on us, but the prices were just beyond anything that´s reasonable.

It´s too bad, because the hotel is lovely and the people even more so, but we won´t be staying there again.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms close to the swimming beach. Some of the beachfront rooms have a long walk to a sandy beach.

It's our first time staying at Half Moon. We only stayed a few days. The room was great. Large and comfortable. Very clean.
The staff was great. Warm, friendly and helpful. The restaurants were very good also. The pricing for food and drinks was high, crazy high. We eat out often and typically spend a lot but this scared me.
There is a 10% tax and 10% tip on top of everything. Even the coffee stand which is ok. We got coffee and a bagel in the morning. $6 coffee $6 bagel times two. So with tax and tip 2 coffees and 2 bagels were $29 US. Lunch burger $19 cheese$2 fries $11. Red Strip $8. Burger fries and a beer $48. Beach buffet $65 per person with tax and tip. No drinks. Mixed drinks ran $40-$50 for 2. We went to the Sugar Mill restaurant for dinner. It's outstanding. Diner for 2 with a bottle of wine, tax and tip $205. It's the best deal there. We spent that on the beach buffet.
I would recommend it as long as you know what to expect. They offer meal and drink plans so definitely take those. We didn't stay long enough for one. Need at least 3 nights to get one.

Stayed: October 2017, travelled as a couple

Too many words to describe this place and at times i was left speechless.
First mention goes to the wonderful staff who were all full of smiles. Special shout out to Kirk. The accommodation and grounds were simply amazing with lovely views and beach.
Had the pleasure of attending a wedding there and that was spectacular. I would go back to half moon in a heartbeat/

I came to this resort for a retreat and we stayed in the villas. the villa was lovely, the individual rooms were spacious, the staff was excellent and professional. Renis our butler was polite and curteous. Pauline the cook her rice and peas I wish I could have take some home with me, so delicious and Lucille did laundry for us it was wonderful to feel like you was at home in paradise. I was amazed at how big the property is offering so much for the quest to do, while on my stay I also visted the Equestrian center, Trinia is amazing as well as the handlers, Nickroy and Smalls. The experience with the horses has made me fall more in love with these wonderful animals.
After the retreat I stayed on the resort a few more days and stayed in a junior suite in the west cottages, which was right on the beach it was decorated beautifully and very spacious. During my stay I also visited the Fern Tree Spa, LeKeshia gave me the best hot stone massage I've had in a long time, she made me feel at ease, her voice was calming and I felt refreshed when I left!
The food at the restaurants was tasty and the jerk burger from the jerk hut was so good!
I have already told everyone who listen they must stay at Half Moon when they visit Jamaica , it a gorgeous resort and well worth your money!

Room Tip: If you are doing a big family vacation, the Villas are a must!
