Ideal destination

By: J Bailey


Reviewed on: 27 Mar 2016

We rented a villa at Half Moon an ideal choice for our "large-ish" group of eight, three generations. This allowed us all privacy with private bedrooms and baths but a dining room, living room and private pool for time spent together. The house also came with a staff of three to make it a genuine holiday, Taneisha, Karrion, and Dexton a big thanks to you. We never lifted a finger and when we did we were (very politely) reminded that what they were there for. Elsewhere in the resort the service was sincere and courteous, in keeping with the calibre of the resort. We took the optional meal plan, we all enjoyed the food. Buffets are not ordinarily my thing and I did try them twice and the were acceptable. Ordering à la carte is the way to go, food prepared for you is always best because it is freshly made; this is not unique at this property. Amenities on-property were as you would expect, all in good repair and uncrowded. Worth the spend.

Relaxed elegance

Reviewed on: 27 Aug 2019

My family and I went had a 5 day stay here in Oceanfront Villa 50. Each of the 6 guest rooms and the library had their own minisplits, and the views out of each room were great. Kirk (our buter) answered all our questions and set up all our excursions and spa appointments. Having two extended golf carts was very convenient. The beach BBQ was great, but it didn’t come close to Mrs. G’s cooking every meal after that. There was some construction going on, but it didn’t inconvenience us in the least. Instead it just makes me excited to come back when it is done! The villa has its own pool which was great for staying in and relaxing. Also we were right beside the beach. We went to the other beach at the main hotel too which was nice to have full food/drink service while we relaxed on the uncrowded beach. Taking the Hobie Cat sailboat and the kayaks out were great too! The villa had some age, but the service abundantly made up for it. If you go, check out the spa! sugarscrub+ hotstone=10!

From the welcome lounge at the airport, the warm reception at the Rose Hall Villas, to the unparalleled service, I had a truly relaxing and carefree vacation. The Villa staff were so attentive to my needs and even anticipated them. I look forward to making the Rose Hall Villas at Half Moon my annual retreat location!

Great resort for families

By: Nw


Reviewed on: 08 Jan 2020

The staff at Half Moon are always top notch. The old section is well maintained and the new section that was partially open was beautiful and well thought out. The restaurants were good. Only complaint is that the rooms in the older section really need to be updated. Multiple times I had to call maintenance to get the back sliding door in its tracks. I would definitely recommend this resort
