A quiet boutique hotel with a colonial stylePosted Nov 8, 2013
Cons: Wireless internet reception can be patchy.
Location: Bacolet beach is only a short walk, Scarborough, the cinema and airport are only an inexpensive taxi journey away.
Ideally located both close to a secluded beach and a pleasant walking distance from Scarborough. Rooms have an attractive colonial style and are clean comfortable and air conditioned. Hotel has a secluded infinity pool and staff are pleasant and helpful. The restaurant serves a good hot breakfast and a good selection of dishes for lunch and dinner.

Not bad, not goodPosted Aug 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
It was so so...the rooms at Bacolet beach hotel are owned by the same people and they have wifi unlike Half Moon. They are right across the street from each other.

Not the bestPosted Aug 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
If I came to Tobago again, I would stay somewhere else. It included breakfast but it was pretty bad. The beach at the hotel was not good at all and the reason we stayed there was because it said it on the beach. There is no wifi at all at half moon but there is at bacolet beach club across the street (which is owned by the same people).

Lovely isolated hotelPosted Aug 4, 2013
Pros: The air con
Cons: The isolation
Location: Very cut off from shops and everything
The hotel and staff were great however you do need a car to get around and we didn t realise you had to walk down so many steps to get to the beach which I couldn't t do due to dodgy knees. The staff said the capital was just a mile down the road but believe me it was more than that and in the intense heat it seemed even further we tried it once before hiring a car it is a lovely place but be prepared for isolation.

A little gem in the CaribbeanPosted Jun 5, 2013
Pros: The spacious rooms have style, warmth and character, staff are friendly and helpful.
Cons: Avoid the 'Cafe Havana' Restaurant, food and service is average but it is extremely overpriced.
Location: Superb quiet and secluded location but close to Scarborough and only taxi ride away from anywhere you wish to visit.
This small hotel is definitely one of Tobago's hidden gems. The spacious rooms have a stylish 'olde worlde' colonial character with polished wooden floors balconies and big four poster beds. The staff are friendly and happy to assist with anything you may require. Half Moon Blue has it's own infinity pool with a superb view of the ocean plus you have access to a further pool and private cove beach belonging to its 'big sister' hotel on the other side of the road. The hotel is in a quiet secluded location but you are only five minutes in a taxi or fifteen minutes walk away from Scarborough. The only negative I found was the 'Cafe Havana' restaurant which is shared with the sister hotel. The food was average, the service was (at best) average but it is extremely expensive! All prices exclude the 15% tax and 10% service charge so you will end up paying an additional 25%+ over their already overpriced menu - a most unwelcome surprise when you get the bill! If you want excellent food, the exceptional La Tartaruga Italian restarant in Buccoo is only a ten minute taxi ride away.

1 week in TobagoPosted Dec 10, 2012 on Hotels.com
At first wasn't to sure. but then later. we love it. Would stay again. Nice and quiet. With great rooms and 4 post beds. Only 1 thing could not get TV on. Then who needs Tv when on Holidays. very close to beach as well. just 3 min walk down.

Wonderful hotel, shame about the hotel staffPosted Aug 17, 2012 on Hotels.com
I stayed at the junior penthouse room which was wonderful and comfortable. The downside to the room is that it has many stairs to get too so don't bring loads of luggage. The wi if connection is not very strong in this room, it keeps on disconnecting (wish I knew that before I booked). Cable television was not working for most of my stay. The staff are friendly but not reliable, you need to keep asking them again and again. The staff in the Resturant across the road are fantastic very welcoming and friendly. Hotel is a bit over priced for what you get.

A bit of a let down...Posted May 15, 2012
Pros: the grounds were really well kept
Location: rather removed from other tourist goings on around the island. although when the weather picked up the private beach was nice. need to rent a car!
Having seen beautiful photos of the hotel online, when we arrived at Half Moon Blue the reality didn't quite live up to our expectations. We did have a 4 poster bedin our 'blue room' but other aspects were lacking. The bathroom had a sliding door, but unfortunately the door was broken. Even if the door had worked, a frosted glass door in front of a toilet hardly provides anything that could be described as privacy. The toilet flush kept catching, and the toilet would regularly carry on flushing until I opened up the back of it myself and rummaged around inside. This is a pain to do, and is exactly the sort of household chore that you go on holiday to avoid. The shower and the rest of our room may have been cleaned prior to our arrival, but if so it was rather a long way in advance because there were spiderwebs as well as a combo of live and dead insects scattered around the room. We were also irked by the lack of privacy we had. Whilst it was lovely to have lots of daylight pouring in through the windows, they had very translucent net curtains. This meant that at night, if you turned the lights on in your room, everyone who walked past could see exactly what you were doing. Great when there's no door to the bathroom.... when the rooms above us were occupied you could hear absolutely everything through the ceiling, walking = stomping and you could hear entire conversations. wifi was not actuallly available in rooms and the tv didnt work when it rained
