After 6 trips to Jamaica beginning in 1984, we finally found the perfect place. Half Moon had it all - great food at 5 restaurants, the friendliest staff ever, clean beaches, grounds and most importantly - clean rooms. It almost made turning 70 a pleasure versus a dread. We are going back next year with our whole family to celebrate...

We rented Villa 91 for the week of Thanksgiving to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We were eight adults and nine children. The villa and staff were perfect for our family. Esme, our cook, and Kirk, our butler, worked easily with our dietary restrictions and requests. Quidella, our maid, kept our rooms and the villa neat & clean as well...

Our remote control wasn't working late one night and they went out and brought one for us. Ms Undia Walker checked us in,...

We rented Villa 89 for a family Thanksgiving vacation. Janice, our cook, made the most wonderful breakfasts and her Thanksgiving feast was a real wow!
