Half Moon resort named among best family hotels
Rated as 'family vacation critic's' 2015 Favourite
Known for its one-of-a-kind amenities and superb hospitality, Half Moon - a 400-acre luxury resort located in Montego Bay - maintains its position as a top choice for families looking for that perfect Caribbean getaway.
Named as a '2015 Favourite' by Family Vacation Critic, TripAdvisor's family travel site, Half Moon continues to wow travellers with its wide variety of amenities that are suitable for families, especially children.
"Half Moon is well positioned to welcome large and small families," noted Sandro Fabris, general manager of the resort that has been in operation for more than six decades. "A short flight from many US cities, and with direct flights from a number of international airports to Jamaica, Half Moon continues to be a safe space for families, where they will find ways to not only relax, but spend quality family time together," he said.
Upon arrival, families have access to a unique activity centre, the Anancy Children's Village, catering to children ages three to 12, as well as trained nannies and coordinators certified by Penn State University's Better Kid Care Program. Other amenities include watersports activities, swimming pools, an exclusive dolphin lagoon, pony park and equestrian centre.
According to Family Vacation Critic, to be designated a Favourite, hotels must have been recommended by 75 per cent or more families who have reviewed the property with either a four or five-star rating. Award recipients have also been vetted by the travel resource's team of experts.
"These winners represent hotels that truly excel as family-friendly properties," explained Lissa Poirot, editor-in-chief of Family Vacation Critic. "Because awards are only given to hotels that receive a high rating from both our team of experts and family travellers who have stayed at the property, the Family Vacation Critic Favourite Hotels designation offers parents a credible stamp of approval to use when searching for the perfect hotel for their family."
