Half Moon

A great family resort with exceptional facilities

Half Moon is located along two miles of stunning beachfront and surrounded by tropical foliage, making the Panoramic views of the calm Caribbean waters truly memorable. This resort is perfect for those looking for the luxury of space and to truly unwind from everyday life in a beautiful destination. With privacy and comfort being incorporated into the design, all room categories have either a spacious patio or balcony to ensure you'll enjoy the peaceful views and feel the gentle sea breeze. 

Take advantage of the extensive facilities, the Fern Tree Spa is the largest award-wining spa oasis in the Caribbean and offers a very unique experience with the choice to have a treatment in the over-water cabana, feel relaxed by the sounds of the ocean beneath you. If you're a keen golfer we recommend the unlimited golf package as there is an 18-hole par-72 championship golf course within the picturesque grounds. Being away doesn't have to mean you stop exercising, the state of the art fitness facilities include a certified Spinning studio and flood lit tennis courts, as well as various wellness options such as yoga and meditation. Half Moon is also the ideal choice if you have young children, an entire village has been built just for the little ones to learn, play, discover and make friends. 

If you're a foodie then the Sugar Mill will excite as it has been awarded ' Jamaica's Best Restaurant', offering a delicious combination of Jamaican flavours in a historical landscape. Explore the Caribbean island to learn about the rich culture and heritage, perhaps even venture up the famous Dunn's River Falls to tick adrenaline off the list.

This resort tried to SCAM us and made up tons of lies. We booked a 5 bedroom villa for $5,000 per night, and arrived to being told we would receive a 3 bedroom because the 5 bedroom we secured was not available. We were told the five bedroom is unavailable because of renovations, assumptions, and lies. They told us we could have a 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom, and 4 bedroom..then were told we couldn't have the five bedroom because of CORONAVIRUS..! the manager later admitted that she made an assumption to give us the three bedroom and that she lied about coronavirus.

Amazing, mon!

Annapolis, Maryland

Just returned from a 10-day stay at Half Moon and we absolutely hated to leave! The safe bubble that is Jamaica felt like such a gift as the world around us was growing more chaotic. Tourism is going to take such a big hit that it breaks my heart to know how this will affect so many. The staff all over the resort was so friendly and so accommodating that we really felt like a part of their family. From the landscapers to the bartenders, to the housekeepers, they always went out of their way to do special things~ climbing for fresh coconuts or staying open longer because the night was too lovely to end. They truly were/are the best! The scenery is gorgeous, the rooms are spacious and clean, the food is tasty, the drinks aplenty and nightly music to set the mood. The vibe is just so chill ~ Fern Tree Spa is where my husband and I spent a lot of time. Karlene was my locker room attendant and always had some fruit or a flower for my hair at the ready after my treatments. Lovely! Massage therapists, Deneesha and Primrose, took the very best care of us and always went above and beyond to give us the most amazing experiences! I can't recommend them enough! We have so much love for those women who not only gave us multiple relaxing massages day after day but captured our hearts too! We cannot wait to return:)
