The location, staff, and overall environment at Moon Dance Cliffs was outstanding! If there is one place in Jamaica to go and truly relax and enjoy it is Moon Dance Cliffs. We will definitely be back. All inclusive package is the best way to go, in order to fully enjoy your stay. The staff was extremely helpful!!! We absolutely loved it...

Having stayed at Moon Dance Cliffs twice now, this really is like a second home. Everyone on the staff is polite, friendly and eager to take care of you. The food is great and the chef, Gladstone, really likes to get feedback on what you think about his food and menu. Having breakfast at Annie's is the perfect way to start the day.

Our room was very clean and in my opinion has the best view. The spa is awesome and I highly recommend the "no worries" massage. It's the best massage I've ever had. Kohler has nothing on Moon Dance. You can't beat their quality and value.

The pool is beautiful and is where we like to spend our time unless the NFL Conference Championship is in progress. For the sports fan, there are 3 TVs in the outdoor sports bar. What better place to be when it's 20 degrees in Chicago and the Bears are losing???

After thinking long and hard, I can only come up with one suggestion for improving the experience. The staff moves supplies (groceries perhaps) through the grounds from one place to another. I can appreciate the need to keep all areas supplied but maybe you can grease the wheels on the shopping cart. It is a little disruptive when you're relaxing to the sound of the waves on the cliffs.

I was sad to leave last year in 2010 and it was even harder this year. We will be back again. For us, this is the only resort in Negril. I'm counting the days already and hoping to increase the duration of our stay by a couple more days.

MoonDance Cliffs is GREAT! On arrival we were greeted by Richard and the rest of his staff introducing themselves to us and from the point on anytime any of the staff saw us we were greeted by first name!!! Making us feel welcomes & special! The staff is goes above and beyond for all the guests, catering to everyones needs (they even went into town for some cough medicine for us). We stayed there for a friends wedding and it was perfect....it was very RELAXING, quiet and intimate.
I highly recommend this resort. It is kind of pricey but WELL WORTH IT! .... THE FOOD IS GREAT especially the shrimp wrapped in bacon!!!

Our stay at the Moon Dance Cliff was greater then any words can decride. My fiance and I are planning our wedding at the Moon Dance Cliffs for October of this year. We visited the resort to finalize our plans and details for our wedding. I have learned that many brides do most of their planning over email and telephone without ever visiting the location. This seems like such a huge decision to make with out having "the experience".

I can now assure any bride and every groom, Moon Dance Resorts has it COVERED........ in every way. Not that you shouldn't do a site visit, but if there is any reason why you can't. Please chose Moon Dance Resorts.

The SERVICE is Out of this World, each employee is OUTSTANDING!!! I travel for a living and I have NEVER had such incrediable client service (not ever). We felt we where at home with our FAMILY to take care of us. The Biggest Thank You to the Staff at The Moon Dance Cliffs. You will all hold a very specail place in our hearts.

Our Wedding Planner Kerry is Amazing.......she had everything and I mean everything set up for us. Including the chairs at the weekend wedding we were invited to at the last minute. We were "Wedding Crashers" but oh my did we have a great time.....hopefully that bride and groom (John and Natalie) will crash our wedding as well.

Richard, Rohan and Matthew.......WOW what an amazing TEAM for management. You are all beyond Superior! Everything we needed you provided with pleasure. The only thing I really NEED are Body Length MIRRORS in the hotel rooms. Everyone women needs a body lenght mirror in her room. I LOVE you guys so much I think I'll buy them for you myself........

Angie, Akeem, Andrew, Johnny Walker, Titonya,Tamara, Andre, Simone, Sherika and Soria. There are really no words to decride how Incredible you all are. Thank you for everything, your all so passionate and genuine. You made our stay at the resort unforgetable. Something we will always remember and talk about for many years to come.

We are so fortunate to have spent the week with you all, thank you is not enough!!!! We look forward to spending the time in October with you all and our guest.

We did not stay at Moon Dance Villas on the Cliffs but came for dinner and to have a tour of the resort.
My husband and I had dinner there one evening and it was one of the best meals we had on our entire trip.
We also were given a tour by Matthew(GM) of the resort and saw several rooms. I loved that all the bathrooms had high counters and were all tiled. There is something for everyone, whether you are a couple looking for an intimate trip or a group of people getting together for a special occasion. The grounds are beautiful beyond words. A prefect setting for a wedding. There are several pools to swim in and a pool bar complete with pool table.
There is also access to the ocean if you want to snorkel.
I think this place is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered.

This is a great retreat outside the hustle and bustle. Rooms are large and comfy with awesome lanais and views of the ocean. The all inclusive package is a good deal and the Rum punch is excellent....even better when served in the pool. The cliff jump is also great......water is beautiful and warm even in January. We were there for a wedding and it was a great time. Would reccomend it for a get away from the cold! The staff there will take care of everything you need. Its a place where you can truly believe in "No worries mon!"
Compliments to the owner.

My husband & i have been to Jamaica many times. We have tried different types of hotels -large,small & all inclusive. We wanted to try this new hotel that offered everything. The staff was really great. We stayed in the one bedroom villa on the waterfront and it was private ,comfortable with a great view. Lashorn was the little dynamo that took care of us. She looked after everything we needed. The whole staff-bartenders, office manager-everyone at the resort was really nice. We like to run and we would get up every morning and run down the road in the Jamaican countryside. We always felt safe and we like to be involved with the culture. They had a wedding take place while we were there and it did not bother us. We had enough privacy in our villa. Lovely place and would recommend it for small groups, couples and large groups. They have larger villas to accommadate bigger groups and they are really nice. Also the hotel rooms & suites are really nice and not as expensive. Food was really good too. Overall we loved it. One Love !
