We just got back from an eight day stay at Half Moon. It is one of my favorite places on earth. We always stay in the Hibiscus Suites which are steps away from the ocean, pools and gym and close to the main house. The service is exceptional, the restaurants are extremely good and a band plays every evening at...

There is a huge bathroom with a view of the garden. We are centrally located to the pool (they have a lap pool also), the swimming beach and bars and restaurants. There is...

This was our best family vacation ever, and we will definitely go back. We were a family of four with kids aged 5 and 7. We stayed in the Hibiscus suites with adjoining rooms for us and the kids. The location was great, allowing a quick walk over to Lester's Cafe to get our morning coffee and croissants and easy...

Half Moon turned out to be everything we were hoping for in a beach resort holiday. It is a very large plot, around 400 acres of grounds (which are very well maintained) and once you can get your head around the sheer size of it, you immediately start to enjoy the impressive amount of things to do here. We enjoyed...

I was a little reluctant to leave to go on a vacation to Jamaica. I have never been to the Caribbean and have heard about the violence there. My family and I finally decided to put it into motion and take the trip. Well, what can I say? We definitely did not regret it. When we made our booking we...

Love HMBR, been going for years. The people and property are awesome! Why did new management drop the Platinum Program...poor economics for their returns. Bad decision for the customer. We are all better off going to an all-inclusive. I have no desire to return, the value scale is poor. Sorry to all our friends who work at the resort.

Everyone at Half Moon Bay is amazing and made our stay feel special. We went during high season and never had trouble getting a spot on the beach or at the pools. It never felt over crowded which added to the relaxed vacation we were looking for. There are so many activities to do there you will not be board....

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.
