Absolutely beautiful, completely relaxing place. The staff at Villa 56 took care of our every need. Carmen our chef provided delicious healthy meals as well as a tasting of the local cuisine. We gave her a standing ovation every night. Michelle kept our rooms spotless, did our laundry (she even got a spot out of my cover up). Nigel makes the best pina coladas and was helpful in making reservations and tracking down my lost luggage. My sister and her daughter ride horses and loved the surf and turf ride. Also make sure to have dinner at the Sugar Mill Restaurant and the bi-weekly barbecue. My parents loved the Fern Spa. Great resort that my parents keep returning to every year.

My wife and I returned to the Half Moon 32 years after we spent our honeymoon there. I must say that as nice as it was in 1986, it is even better in 2018. The setting is ideal -- we were in the Hibiscus suites -- we could walk out to the beach from our great terrace where we would spend the late afternoons. The service could not have been better. From housekeeping to the gym, the spa, the beach attendants, and even the security guards -- all were trying their best to make our stay a great one. The resort is large -- I could walk round-trip each morning within the resort for 3 plus miles. Although there is construction in one part of the resort, you could not hear it and we were not bothered by it. We did the MAP meal plan -- breakfast and dinner. For breakfast there is a huge selection at the buffet along with made-to-order eggs and omelets and waffles. For dinner, there is a choice of three restaurants -- the Seagrape Terrace, the Sugar Mill and an Italian restaurant. The Sugar Mill was by far the best -- a great setting and excellent food. We liked the Italian restaurant next. Great pastas and fish. And, the Seagrape Terrace had a wide selection and good food -- just not as great as the other two restaurants. I did one spa treatment and it was excellent. The gym is well equipped and managed. I also want to note that I had great help from the reservations staff when I booked my trip and had multiple follow-on requests. A great shout out and thank you to Dianna McLennon who worked so hard to make our stay so great. All and all, a great spot to chill and escape the winter.

My family and I had the pleasure of staying the Washingtonia - Villa 79. Phillip, Joy and Olive went above and beyond to make our stay incredible. From an immaculately kept villa, to delicious breakfasts and a beautiful and tasty birthday dinner and cake for my fourteen year old daughter. The three of them made our stay one of them most memorable weekends for my family. Thank you.

Half moon is a special space. The property is gorgeous, the staff is incredible and the Villas are the way to go. We were greeted at the airport in the half moon lounge and taken straight to villa 82 and greeted by our staff Karen, Cadilla and Kirk but decided to upgrade to an ocean front villa. Number 50. Our staff moved everything to Villa 50 including the food that we had already ordered. Once in our beautiful ocean front Villa we had time to truly relax and get to know this incredible place. Karen, our cook prepared the most amazing meals from gourmet breakfasts including chocolate chip pancakes for the kids, stuffed omelets, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit and more every morning. Lunch consisted of fresh fish, chicken, guacamole, grilled meats and salad. Dinner was authentic Jamaican dishes including curried chicken, lobster, oxtail, pasta with meat was delish. Karen was an incredible cook with amazing healthy options. We had two people in our party with challenging allergies and she cooked options for them every night. She was incredible. Kirk, delivered our food, made us drinks, helped us with any thing that needed to be done. He was our butler but he was a TRUE butler. From bringing us fresh cold drinks to our private pool to serving us food and water at every meal and cleaning up. Kirk made sure every detail of our vacation was complete. You only had to ask him something 1 time. He was so personable, professional and hard working. One day with the cook was running late, he made mac and cheese for our was incredible. Kirk is the glue that holds the vacation together. Cadilla kept our rooms clean all day and did laundry for 3 families. Our rooms were cleaned twice a day and she would do our laundry daily. Our villa was kept spotless for her. She was so friendly and met us with a smile. The beaches here are incredible. Warm water and smooth sand. Lots of water sports and boating. The lobby is gorgeous. There is a kids club, tennis, large pools, amazing spa. We spent most of our time at our private villa pool and at the lobby beach. It never felt too crowded. We ate dinner one time at the was good but we loved Karens cooking better and we preferred eating dinner ocean side at our villa!

What an amazing way to celebrate my husbands 50th!!! Staying at Villa Ibis #86 was OUTSTANDING... Jason our Butler/Concierge gave us the utmost care and customer service beyond expectation. Our in house Chef Denise aka Mama D was incredible, preparing delicious Jamaican influenced foods as well as being flexible with shellfish allergies and scheduling. And, Karen who kept our rooms in tip top shape and smelling fabulous. Lidvall the pool man & Coconut Hunter extraordinaire and lastly the landscaper that kept the gorgeous lawn tidy. Thank you all for one of the best holidays EVER!!! The Kranks
