In addition to its exceptional seaside location, Half Moon offers an array of hotel amenitiesJamaica resort activities, including six signature Jamaican fine-dining restaurants and eight bars. Enjoy a wide variety of fare from classic continental breakfasts to expansive four-course dinners drawing from the finest of European traditions. At this luxury resort, we strive to create a dining experience second to none and believe we achieve that in our many on-site restaurants. Half Moon resort is equally lauded for the award-winning Fern Tree spa. This state-of-the-art, 68,000-square-foot facility offers a bounty of spa treatments and a multitude of natural body care products, making us the largest and most comprehensive spa resort in Jamaica.

If you're up for hitting the links, take up a round of 18 holes of Robert Trent Jones Sr.-designed golf, known as one of the finest golf courses in Jamaica. Be swept away by the majestic panoramas and the seaside breeze as you walk the course among some the finest golfing on the island. Unlike any destination resort in Jamaica, Half Moon is the only resort that features a natural Dolphin Lagoon where you can meet, swim with, and even kiss Reggae and Toni, our resident Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins. Stay on the shore or spend a day as a trainer as you immerse yourself in the aquatic world of these majestic creatures.

Guests can also enjoy one of Half Moon's 54 swimming pools, most of which are attached to private villas and guest rooms. Swim alone or with loved ones in a private lagoon just off your room. If you're looking for a more communal experience, Half Moon offers three communal pools perfect for socializing with other guests. Fitness fanatics can use one of our 13 lit tennis courts or our modern fitness centre, complete with all the equipment and facilities of any gym in any modern city. Horse lovers can visit our equestrian centre and take a ride along the shore upon horseback. And families will love the special hangout spots and activities for teens and younger children, creating a Jamaica family vacation experience unlike any other.

The outside world is a distant memory when you arrive at the Fern Tree, A RockResorts Spa® at Half Moon. This 68,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor sanctuary for the mind and body was inspired by Jamaica's lush landscape and centuries-old healing traditions. Here, guests are treated to the personalised spa experience that will achieve complete wellness and utter bliss.

Half Moon's course has been welcoming golfers of all levels for over 40 years. Named the "Best Caribbean Golf Resort" by Caribbean World Magazine and "2009 Golf Resort of the Year (Rest of World)" by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators, the Half Moon Golf Course now boasts improved features for both the avid and casual golfer. Renovated by renowned golf course architect Roger Rulewich in 2005, the course features newly-aligned, multiple tee complexes as well as repositioned fairways and greenside bunkers. Rulewich was mindful to maintain the course's integrity of respecting the natural flow of the land while modernizing the course to account for improvements made to golf equipment over the years. Crafting challenging holes incorporating interesting design to maximize the player experience, all while taking care to highlight the natural beauty of the Montego Bay setting, Rulewich and Trent Jones have created one of the finest, if not the finest, golf courses in Jamaica.

With an unparalleled range of activities for everyone from the most discerning travelers to families with young children, there is always something to do at Half Moon.

Review:   I would give them 0 Points if I could... I was there a few years back. Unfriendly and arrogant staff. We paid around $1000 per night and stayed in a lovely beach front villa.. you know: you open your patio.. sand... water - all ours! Fabulous... until 8am the next morning - some workmen started digging up the beach with a small digger right outside our bungalow.. If I remember correctly, we were one of the last houses, if not the last house.. meaning - reception was FAR away (a good few minutes by caddy). So i filmed the incident and made my way to guest relations. Instead of finding a resolution, I was being shouted at and being accused of having an audacity to even complain... I demanded a new room and I was being told, they were fully booked. I said at $1000/night I expect peace and quiet and not "road works" outside "my beach front". So I demanded my money back as I said, I'd be happier in a $70 guest house than a $1000 a night room with noise. I asked for the Manager and was told that "she's the manager".. (yeah right). The whole thing escalated and I was told that they wouldn't refund me my money back since I booked and paid in advance... I was young and inexperienced at the time, so I packed my bags and indeed went to a guest house. I think today this couldn't happen any longer - I'd sue them on the spot - but like I said, I was young and didn't know how to handle the situation... However, I still want to let my story know... as I don't think it's fair that a paying customer is being treated as a criminal for something THEY should have resolved...

Review:   Perfect for families and couples to celebrate any occasion. It has an enormous open air lobby with a colonial style feel. You can rent bikes, play croquet, tennis, or rent kayaks and paddle boards near the main beach. There is also a world class golf course and free mini golf to practice your put. The pool is a great place to relax and it has a swim up bar :)

Review:   Fantastic getaway place. The event planners and sales team are fantastic. Just let them kno what you need and you can consider it done. Great rooms at the villa and once you bring your own food the cook will do a great job serving up some tasty dishes.
