We stayed 3 nights at Moondance Cliffs (because we also stayed 4 nights over on the beach side of the island to get a full experience in Jamaica, the best of both worlds, beach and cliffs!)
I would have stayed longer had I been given the choice! The cliffs side is amazing! Moondance Cliffs is a wonderful small resort with a relaxing, clean, homey feel. The room was spacious as we got a deluxe with a private hot tub on the balcony which was so relaxing to sit in and enjoy the sunset or the beautiful night-scape. The grounds are wonderfully immaculate with lawn games like croquet and bag toss which we played tournament style with new friends from Chicago (Shout-out to y'all!! Thanks for making our trip more special!) we made at the resort! They were among the only other people at the resort so it felt like a tiny community and it was fun to have someone to hang out with around the pool bar who remember your names and were familiar faces, something you don't usually get at large resorts!
The staff made this place wonderful, particularly both managers (both named Richard) which I didn't even realize they were the managers at first very warm and friendly! Hassan, Rayon, and Trevor were at the pool bar a lot and kept things entertaining and interesting! There were many more but names are not my strong point! They were all friendly warm and genuine, making us feel honored to be there.
Some amazing Jerk chicken!! The food at Moondance was excellent and we ate here most of the time! What a breakfast! We also went off resort to Ricks and Ivan's. Ricks was fun to be at, but the food at Ivans was incredible and way better than Ricks! Reservation only so make sure you call and reserve ahead of time.
The cliffs at Moondance were so peaceful and they have their own carved out tub so you can enjoy the sea even on the rougher days when its too dangerous to enter the ocean! So cool, and a great hang out place! The sunsets on the West side of the island were amazing and much more romantic than in Montego bay. They have plenty of chairs and lay-down loungers which have great views...
The snorkeling on the calm days is incredible right off the edge of the cliffs! I can't say enough good things about this place! A wonderful resort! I would highly recommend this place and their customer service!
PS. I posted a picture of Hassan, please pass it on to him! :)
