No one who frequents the hotels and villas of the north coast of Jamaica should resist the opportunity to spend a day, a night, a week...at Half Moon. The classic hotel first featured in Ian Fleming's "Live and Let Die" comes to life in traditional Caribbean fashion from the moment you enter its gates. The welcome, the reception and the...

Great place... stayed in one of the Hibiscus suites with my family and loved almost everything about the resort. It is a huge property with tennis courts, a golf course, a nice gym, beautiful, large, comfortable suites, and a few pools that you may only visit briefly, because the ocean is so beautiful! Breakfast is great, lunch fabulous, but didn't...

The staff at villa '62' exceeded our every expectation. Our live in cook, Ruby, conjured up some local favorites and delightful desserts. Ruby cooks with love. Devon is so much more than any 'butler'. He anticipated every want and was always so pleasant and accommodating. Everything 'irie mon'. Valerie kept everything tidy in our rooms and clean and fresh.

Without a doubt Half Moon is the best resort on the island. The staff is so nice. Always asking to help. The food is super. We opted for the all inclusive meal plan and were happy we did. Make sure your party enjoys at least on meal at the Sugar Mill. It will compare with any restaurant in the States.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A destination in itself, set on 400 acres of manicured grounds with two miles of beachfront. We have 197 individually-appointed rooms and suites and 31 villas, most of which have views of the Caribbean Sea. 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. As a discerning traveller, you will enjoy the luxury of space and tranquility we have to offer. Imagine your first morning taking in the panoramic view of the horizon, and watching the sunrise having just concluded yoga meditation in our overwater bungalow. Then, cycle to the Seagrape Terrace for breakfast before beginning a day of whatever you want. Whether you choose to lounge on the beach, play a round tennis or golf, visit a local art gallery, or go horse riding along the beach, your days at Half Moon are yours to spend in any way you wish. ... more   less
