Famous as a hotel that has passed down through the generations, Half Moon, has created a whimsical village just for children. Inspired by Jamaica’s fabled children’s character Anancy the Spider, the children’s play area features a model “Caribbean village” with buildings painted in brightly colored hues that are guaranteed to enliven the spirits of young visitors. Anancy and his friends form the central theme around which activities and learning programs are planned for children aged three to 12.
Little ones will have the time of their lives during their holiday as they create puppet shows in Tacoomah Hut, enjoy cold refreshments in Patoo’s Lookout, get creative in Artsy Kraftsy or listen to captivating stories in Tacoomah hut.
The Anancy Children’s Village at Half Moon includes shaded play areas, activity rooms, a wading pool, sand box, and expansive outdoor play area with each activity supervised by a well-trained coordinator. We only accept children that are fully potty trained.
Families with children who are not potty trained can take advantage of our nanny service and have nannies escort children to the Anancy Children’s Village.
Anancy Children’s Village is Open Daily 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
