Incredible luxury in a quiet setting

Another wonderful hotel in Jamaica. Everything you could want is here. All the rooms and villas are incredible. Wonderful views, large clean room. Fantastic balconies to relax on. The resort is clean, the staff friendly, the bar and restaurants are superb. Free coffee and tea in the morning was a great touch. I was here for business so did not really get to use the whole resort. However this is a great place to come to unwind after a busy day. The beach was clean and private. From what i understand the place is being shut down for a few months in Sept/Oct for complete rennovations, but it did not seem like it needed it. I woudl absolutely stay here again.

Family Vacation 2017

Our group of 11 family and friends (ages 12 - 52) stayed in Villa 89 (Almanda), Aug. 7 - 10, 2017. From the time we checked in to departure, we were treated extremely well. Our staff in our villa were Merlene, Venrise, and Denise. We can not say enough about them. They catered to our every need. They were extremely friendly and became like family during our stay. Merlene kept everything spotless and made sure our laundry was taken care of. Venrise is the man! He made sure our experience at Half Moon was awesome. He made grocery runs for us, scheduled our trip to Dunn's River Falls, and like the other staff catered to our every need. Denise, Denise, Denise. If you are ever at Half Moon and stay in a villa, please request Denise to cook for you. OMG she made meal time the best part of our trip. It was wonderful to sit on the patio during breakfast and dinner and share a wonderful meal with our family and friends. Denise's bread pudding was a daily request as well as Venrise's Rum Punch :-) . We are so glad that we chose Half Moon for our vacation spot this year. There's nothing we regret about our stay. Although the property is 400 acres, we had two golf carts to get us around. Our own pool at the villa was also nice. I can not wait to go back with some of our married friends in the future. Half Moon, please tell Merlene, Venrise, and Denise that we miss them :-)

Paradise

We stayed here for 5 nights in room 1054 and 1052 which where lovely just facing the sea, sun loungers where just on the beach , plenty of them but they have no umbrella so you had to find shade under the coconuts palms and you had to be careful that nothing fell as it can get windy , the staff where very friendly couldn't do enough , beds where comfortable , free internet and you also got free bikes to ride around the resort , breakfast was good a buffet and you could have lunch and dinner , there where other restaurants on site but the main was the sugar mill which was nice and had strict code for the men no tailor shorts only long trousers , the place was closing for a month in sept as it was getting very tatty , the only disappointment was there meal plan which was very confusing there was an American plan which was $130 which include all the food but no drink or the other plan which was $165 which included the drink , bills were very confusing as on the main bill when leaving you didn't see the any of the $130 just different amounts I kept all the receipts but couldn't make head or tails I think if we stayed again I wouldn't go on any meal plan as sometimes we didn't have any lunch as the breakfast was filling ,

Definitely a miss for us, very run down!

My husband and I came for our anniversary. We stayed in the Hibiscus suite. Upon our arrival, the lobby and rooms are showing a lot of wear and are in desperate need of updating. The A/C was not cold even though we had it on the coldest setting. There was barely any cold air coming out of the vents. We called the front desk and they sent maintenance but all he could confirm is that it was working. We both had spa treatments which were ok, but very expensive. The spa facility is under renovation, the temporary facility is awful. It is a bunch of old cottages with rooms they use. No lockers, sauna, steam room, indoor jacuzzi, as you would expect at a luxury spa. The pedicure chair was right outside the room I was getting a massage, they were talking the majority of the time, so I could not relax. We asked when the renovations would be done to the spa and were told by the front desk they did not know. BTW - we did not see any renovations going on. The food was ok, nothing special, expensive, and there were only a few restaurants to go to. I would say the one good thing was the staff. They were very pleasant. We came for the Half Moon reputation but it just did not live up to a 5 star resort. Sorry, I am not sure I would come back.

Showing its age, but they are working on it!

A group of us rented one of the Villa's (large homes on the far end of the resort). At first, I was a little underwhelmed by what I saw, but after a day, I realized why this place came so highly recommended. The service. I have been to many resorts on many islands and the service at Half Moon, by far, was the best I've ever had. The food is very good, albeit expensive and the only thing I can tell you is that it is HOT and HUMID in the summer. Many of the restaurants are "open air" (and not air conditioned) which was brutal when the breezes died down. Some of the resort and buildings are showing their age, but there is construction of a brand new building underway (annoying but necessary). The golf course is a nice layout but it too is showing its age. All in all a great time for us though, and we will return, especially once the new facilities are in place.
