Follow in the footsteps of royalty and stay in the rather grand Half Moon Resort on the north coast of Jamaica, a 10-minute drive from the airport. Old-world charm meets modern luxury and families who come to stay not only enjoy a break in a fantastic setting (white sandy beaches, interiors harking back to the glamour of the 1950s and top-rate staff) but also contribute to the environment through The Half Moon Foundation; a philanthropic social enterprise donating to local causes. 

It’s not just a paradise for adults but for kids too; there’s a supervised Children’s Village with play area. The equestrian centre and Golf Academy can give tuition and there’s fine and casual dining at the 3 restaurants with early dining options, kids’ menus, themed dinner nights and weekly buffets and barbecues. The spa is the largest in the country, with its own huge lagoon pool and facilities and there are plenty of sports to take part in, land and water based. Any number of trips can be organised through the hotel.

Rooms, suites and villas are all equally glamorous with grand furnishings, some with private pools and all with stunning views.
