I don't know where to start and how to explain what a fabulous vacation we had at Moon Dance Villas!! There were 21 in our group....we had the 2 5-bedrooms houses. It was a group of family and friends. Some had visited Moon Dance before and some were "newbies." And for the newbies....the experience far exceeded our expectations. Glen, Sarge,...

Although the rooms and layout were nice, and at first arrival everything looked great, the more we stayed it seemed like there had been many cut corners. For example, it wasn't very clean, especially the kitchen which was covered in a sticky funk. Throughout the house, the drawers were full of random things like used cleaning rags and obgyn magazines....

Carole intuitively knew what we wanted and when we would want it. Nathaniel is a great chef. Our omlettes, jerk chicken,salads,soups and lobster were superb. This property...

We just spent four nights in Ginger breeze (5 bedroom villa) with our kids ages 6,10,13 and 15. The location -steps from the beach, the amazing food and the personalized service- courtesy of Sarge and Glen- and the endless option of water sports for the kids, made this an unforgettable trip. We booked the same villa for the same week...

WOW! We went for our honeymoon and spent the last couple days of it planning our return visit. Upon arrival, we were met with 2 glasses of champagne and a tour of the property. We stayed in Lilac Mist (1 bedroom) and loved it. Our butler, Jermaine, and chef, Nathanial, were wonderful, personable and professional. Food delicious and drink tropical....

If you want complete luxury, an authentic Jamaican experience, and are done with the buffet at the all inclusive, this is the only destination on Negril to choose. You get your own private staff, just tell them when where and what and it will dazzle you. Truly like having your own private luxury home on the beach. The beach is...

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.

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....
