I have been very spoilt over the last 10 years to see the transformation of the Half Moon Resort from a good property to one that surpasses all others in the Caribbean
The Half Moon have spent a huge fortune on renovation and rebuilding the property and now all is perfect
We arrived with the Resort on 98% capacity with a great mix of Americans, British and Europeans. There was also a large party of Japanese who arrived as we were leaving.As the time we were there was during school holidays all parties included children who were mostly well behaved
The magic about the location is an endless shoreline and each stretch
of beach has its own breakwater constructed about 50 yards out to sea
to stop the large breakers but also to allow for continual fresh water. Each beach has been carefully designed and by excavating at certain points its leaves deep pools for those who enjoy deep water swimming
There has always been a friendly culture in Jamaican Resorts and the staff at the Half Moon are all so friendly as though they have all been made aware that it is the guests that keep them employed. From the humble gardener to the smart restaurant staff there was a 100% acknowledgement at all times - "Good Morning, Good afternoon, Good evening" and each time with a friendly smile!
The Restaurants varied from very good to good and the evening buffet in the main restaurant always offered a great variety of food. We found the beach bar.b.cue was good for parents with children but not as good for adults only. The Thai/Indian Restaurant was excellent but suffers from being off property and therefore not well supported.
The Sugar Mill Restaurant is superb and the Italian has some excellent dishes
The sports facilities were all of good quality and the tennis centre was always busy
The Management have always been approachable and, I understood, there
was always someone senior on duty to answer emergencies
We had a wonderful holiday and although it rained every day it was kind enough to do so during the night
Anthony and Prue Bevan stayed the last week of March 2007
