Half Moon, Montego Bay

Half Moon is one of Jamaica’s top destination resorts, a place you can check into and be perfectly happy until you’re ready to depart. In fact, there’s no reason not to be: facilities here include a shopping village, hospital, school, dolphin swims, a golf course, and equestrian center. This resort began in 1954 as a group of private beach cottages offered for rent during off-season months but it has blossomed into one of Jamaica's most extensive resorts.

Those beach cottages are still available and--just steps away from the sand as well as public areas--remain a great choice for families. We stayed in the cottages on our last stay and loved the easy proximity both to the public areas and to the beach. Some rooms are a long walk from public areas although a call can arrange for a golf cart pickup. Nearby you'll find expansive villas, a good choice for extended family groups. The villas come with a private golf cart for your use as well as household staff.

Half Moon also boasts a private dolphin experience. The Dolphin Lagoon is home to four dolphins available for swims and encounters with resort guests only.

The resort also offers a supervised kids’ center, available for potty trained children ages three and over. The facility includes a kids’ pool, video games, and playground. Babysitting is also available. Other kids’ facilities at the property include pint-sized bikes for rent ( bike paths winding through the resort), a game room with table tennis, and more. Children are welcomed in all the restaurants; the main Seagrape Terrace restaurant also offers a special kids’ menu and early seatings.
