i have reviewed Jumby twice before...so will only add a few comments:
-for us (2 adults, 2 kids 13 and 10) it is the best on so many levels...it is the intangible 'ambience" of the overall vacation that wins the day...you may find better sea in Maldives, better sand in Turks, better food etc etc but no resort delivers the complete experience than Jumby
this time we were very fortunate to stay in a privately owned house...beyond words !! ...but i would walk from London to Jumby irrespective of accomodation
I spend a lot of time in hotels with work and leisure and believe Andrew Hedley is the most visible GM, the most focused on training the staff to deliver the experience yet allowing their wonderful personalities to shine through. Every engagement with staff is natural and warm and Jumby has some incredible characters
Not sure writing reviews is good for Jumby lovers....we have only just managed to book again for Xmas 2013 but demand is high !!!!
