We haven't long come back from 10 days at Jumby Bay-all i can say is WOW! i have been to Antigua before but this resort is the creme de la creme. I have never seen such crystal clear waters, and the staff, accomodation, spa and food were tip top.We took a boat trip around the entire island, which only proved to confirm my opionion that we were staying at the best part of the island.This was probably the most exspensive holiday we've ever had, but i have to say it was worth it. Would say this isnt really a family resort, but perfect for couples wishing to spend some quality time together.

On a private island with private beaches. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the resort is updated and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We loved being on the island--we felt very safe, and far removed from the world. I would highly recommend Jumby Bay for a honeymoon or couples vacation. Probably not best for children.

We went here for our honeymoon. Have never done an all inclusive before, but we absolutely loved it here. We stayed in a Courtyard suite with a beautiful ocean view. The room was spacious and had a great outdoor shower and tub. There were a variety of food options and everything was very good. The beach is gorgeous. Bicycles are included outside every room. This place is so small and intimate that you don't even lock your hotel room, there is no key. You never sign anything and never show any ID because the staff knows you as soon as you arrive (by boat). The bicycles are never locked up. The main reason for the 5 stars is that the service is absolutely fantastic. The staff at the beach bar bring you your own mini-coolers filled with water (or beer, if you'd like). The restaurant servers see you coming and know what your special needs are before you sit down (my other half had a mimosa every morning and they had it ready almost as he was sitting down). The front desk staff was always helpful and made sure that our itinerary at check out was prearranged (they came to pick up luggage without a call, they had the boat waiting and the staff was waiting at the pier to send us off). Even the managing director of the hotel personally greeted us and checked on us personally during our stay. By the way, the flights over the island were absolutely nothing to worry about and I only noticed it because of previous reviews on here.

We have enjoyed many vacations at Jumby Bay. The resort is fabulous and the service is wonderful. Quiet secluded resort with great food, water, and service. Only down side is a small fitness facility and for the 2nd year in a row the treadmills were out of order. Very disappointed in their inability to get them fixed (and yes, I did report them last year and even called a couple of weeks before this trip to see if they were repaired. They said the were fixed - but were not). Whatahotel made this reservation for us and got us a room upgrade - suite with private pool

There are many things in life that do not live up to expectations, but Jumby Bay far exceeded our expectations (and we had high ones!). The resort was in fantastic shape. It is extremely well manicured and very clean. Our beachside courtyard suite was in flawless condition and had an amazing view. The food was top notch at every single meal. There is a good variety and selection from seafood to meat or vegetarian. The resort does a good job of offering some activities to do each day. The best part of the resort is the Antiguan staff that works there. They are all such wonderful, caring and compassionate people who appreciate you choosing to vacation at Jumby Bay. I have countless examples that I could write but it would take too long. I would like to give a very special thanks to Seon, Jasmine, Melinda, Rhonda, Tatian, Steve, Marion, Felix, Darren, Summertime, Ishmael, Wayne, Tony, Anthier, and last but certainly not least Ms. Jenny at the beach bar. You are the reason we will be coming back to Jumby Bay!

If you are looking for a super wild night life, this may not be the place for you, but if you are looking for great food, great service, beautiful beaches and waters, and relaxation then Jumby Bay can't be beat. There is a ferry that goes back and forth to the main land in Antigua if you really want a lot more to do, but on an 8 day honeymoon, we never felt bored!

Can't wait to go back and see my Jumby friends again...Wogwon!

Jumby Bay is the epitome of Paradise. My family and I stayed there last August and the memories are as fresh as if we just left. We have been to many five star resorts and private Villas throughout the Carribean but this one surpasses all of them by far. This is not a resort it is your "room in Paradise"......My daughters (ages 8 & 10) actually cried when we were leaving. Truth be told....I had to wipe a few tears also......

The staff is incredible.....starting with the sweetest and most professional experience with Janelle in reservations and ending with Melinda walking you to the ferry. My daughters embraced the ocean thanks to the expertise and warmth of Lacey and Dexter. They patiently taught them snorkeling and many attempts at water skiing. Jacqueline was gracious and kind and made us totally at ease at check In and diligently followed up with us throughout our entire stay. Melinda was the "hostess with the mostest" and we had a picnic lunch on the beach to prove it!! Treavor makes the best drinks in the Caribbean.....hands down!!

We absolutely LOVE Jumby Bay.....and you will too!!!!!!

First time to Antiqua... as a group the nicest people I've ever met.

The beauty of Jumby Bay is you almost never need to wait in a line, find a beach cabana, or struggle to get a bartender's attention. The entire staff is friendly, well trained and completely focused on the guests. They are always present but never in the way.

The main beach has the feel of a Corona beer commercial... White sand, starfish, mild waves, and multiple colors of blue.

The food is well presented and very tasty.

We stayed in Room #10... Great outdoor shower. Outstanding room service. Only complaint is that there could be more foliage between rooms on the patio/jacuzzi area.

Received 2 massages from the Spa... very relaxing. Exploring Jumby Bay on bike was an added bonus. Spoke to several people who had split their time at Jumby Bay and other Antiqua resorts and said the Jumby Bay service was not duplicated.
