We are staying in the Dream Walk house with two other couples and until today have had an amazing time. It is 1am and we have been tortured with unbearably loud music coming from a bar two doors away since 4 this afternoon. The windows of the house are rattling and vibrating from the six foot speakers that have been...

We’re flattered to hear Magnolia16 found their accommodations, food, and service at Moon Dance Villas impeccable. At Moon Dance, we do everything in our power to ensure a great vacation for our guests. Unfortunately, curtailing the occasional loud music on the beach during Spring Break time is beyond our capabilities. We tried reasoning with the bar owners and we contacted...

Our New Years trip consisted of our family of 5 and another family of 5. The kids with us ranged from 23 - 29 and we stayed in the 5 bedroom villa. It was even more beautiful, seeing that I am sceptical of internet pictures. We were plesently greeted by our friendly staff and given a Jamaician drink upon arrival....

My wife and I chose Moon Dance Villas for our destination wedding after looking at literally hundreds of resorts and villas in Jamaica. We were on the fence as to whether we wanted a more resort type setting or a quieter villa setting. We chose Moon Dance because of the more intimate setting for our 28 guests, the on site...

I went to Moondance Villas to take photos of a wedding. It was a wonderful experience. The staff were courteous and very pleasant. I would only be happy to go there again for another wedding. It has the perfect beachfront and the sunset is a must see. Great romantic settings for weddings.
