The Beach House at Half Moon is an absolute gem. We stayed for one night. The staff was wonderful and room was clean. Bed was comfortable and sheets smelled good. The bathroom was clean and fresh. The bathroom was older. The beach view from the room was relaxing and quaint. Easy walk to the beach and local restaurant. Slept with...

We had non-stop problems with the key card entry of our room. Maid staff had to let us in 3 out of the 4 times we left the room. They were very helpful. The desk staff on the other hand was very rude about it and would not listen to out problem. They assumed it was because the door was...

Stayed four nights, quiet, comfortable, good rooms although starting to look slightly shabby. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast in the lobby. Really good location on the beach. Good place to relax and use the surrounding area. Weather can sometimes misty but cool enough to be active.

This is one of the nicest beach hotels I have ever stayed in or even heard of.

I was here for a business meeting. It's a lovely little boutique hotel. Don't expect a restaurant or bar-you need to get to the nearby restaurants which close early. Lovely, quiet rooms with sea views and pleasant attentive staff.
