Question: We’re planning a family vacation and would like to stay at the Half Moon Jamaica. We have a family of 5 in total, 2 adults and 3 kids ages 3, 9, and 11. What room types can accommodate all 5 of us?
Answer: The Half Moon Jamaica has 1 bedroom suite options that can accommodate a family of 2 adults and 2 kids, but for a family of 5 you would need to make a reservation for a 2 bedroom suite. There would be no additional charges for children under the age of 12. To view availability, rates, and to make your reservation, simply visit this website and enter your dates of travel.

The Round Hill Hotel and Villas has been playing host a panoply of stars lately, and this holiday period was so covered with them, we'd advise the use of shades for more than just the sun. If you were down there in your post-Christmas festivities, you would've been enjoying the company of honeymooning Paul McCartney along with his daughter Stella McCartney, Ewan McGregor and wife, and if that weren't enough, the entire Ralph Lauren crew decided to come along for the ride. So next time you're there, don't be surprised if you can't walk five feet without having to play it cool.
And it's no wonder. The Round Hill has always been one of, if not the top, resorts in Jamaica and the whole of the Caribbean. Situated on Montego Bay, the cashmere sweater of luxury hotels is both soft and inviting and not showy in the least. The 18th century great house turned luxury resort is one of the most low-key in our collection, and that's exactly as it should be. If you're interested in the all-inclusive programs offered by the resort, simply make sure to mention the All-Inclusive Platinum Plan to it added into your room rates. As you're looking to shake off the winter snow and head to warmer climes, the Round Hill Hotel and Villas is definitely one to check out.
