We visited as a family vacation and stayed in a large villa. The villa was large, well kept and the three in staff were wonderful. The facility is safe and comfortable. The beaches are excellent. Easy to walk or bike to wherever you need to go.

My husband and I have made three trips to Half Moon and enjoy it more every time we come. We love the island vibe of the resort. Who wants to have to take an elevator to their room when in Jamaica? We stay in the Hibiscus Suites and find them charming and comfortable and what a great view of the...

This was our second visit to Jamaica. First was a stop at Ocho Rios on a cruise. Montego Bay is a magical spot with crystal clear water and copious vegetation. The resort itself was pristine in all areas, maintained by a staff of 700! The service was impeccable. The only big negative was the food. The breakfast buffet was copious...

I loved this place for the isolated beaches away from the families who were there. It is not a party animal kinda of place, there are families and there are couples. It has a bit of Old Style English feel, the staff was really friendly. It wasn't crowded, it wasn't loud, it was relaxing. The beach front is long, as...

This is a beautiful hotel on 400 acres. Our one bedroom royal suite was literally steps from the beach. The cottages on sunset beach are right on the beach, we had Lovl (beach attendant) set up our lounges early in the morning and we headed to breakfast. I will get to the food in a sec..

When I landed at MBJ, and went over to the greeting area for the Half Moon Resort (HMR), I could instantly tell that this was a finer type of service. Our ride to the resort was brief, and scenic, the resort is nestled Oceanside across from a sprawling green mountain range, entering the grounds was yet another confirmation that this...

If I had one more day to spend on the planet, it would be on the shores of this spectacular resort. My husband and I arrived in our mid twenties for our first stay as young newly weds almost 16 years ago, and every time we have returned (which has been around 9 times since), we have a fantastic time....

What an extraordinary place! No wonder Oprah chose to have her birthday here and the grounds have been graced by visits from Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Richard Branson to name a few. We wanted to book a special location to celebrate my husband's birthday and we had heard about this one for a while but had never made it...

If you are an all-inclusive, crowd-loving, activity junkie then this is not the place for you. The beauty of Half Moon comes in its sheer simplicity and barefoot elegance. Gracing the halls are black and white photos of the Kennedys, Royal family, and other dignitaries bringing to life the decades of history that this resort has seen. We stayed in...

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.
