We were fortunate to return to Jumby for one week in June and again it is just wonderful. The rooms are beautiful with gorgeous views of the beach. We took full advantage of the bikes, spending hours riding around the island, the tennis courts are great alothough we only played for a little while each day since it was so hot out. Gym is nice too, everything that you would need to get a workout in.

Loved using all the water sports too, we paddleboarded almost every day and even tried the tubing being pulled by the speed boat. Took the boat tour around the island which was fun, we were the only ones but the tour still went on. It was fund seeing the stunning villas from the water.

Everyone that works here is so nice and friendly, the service is great and I feel the selection of food and the quality is something I look forward to. I hope to return someday soon. Love Jumby!

Jumby is beautiful. I stayed in one of the suites and it was charming and quaint. We toured the villas and estates and each was more spectacular then the last. The service was outstanding and the trip to Antigua was way easier than other islands. It was a short ferry ride off to the island. A great place to truly get away from it all.

I hesitate to write this review because I don't want more people to find out about this place. There isn't a more idyllic place to spend some time. Great people, great beach, great accommodations, great food. Small, quiet, private. Terrific.

Jumby Bay provided a wonderful vacation. The place is beautiful and kept very clean. We stayed in a lovely villa with a infinity pool. There are three different restaurants to choose from. One place for breakfast, two places for lunch and three places for dinner. The resort also has some special dinner nights: White Night on the beach (bring something white to wear) and Caribbean Night. The food was very good, but after a week, I was kind of craving things that I couldn't get on the menus. The drinks are free flowing and filled with alcohol. A couple of days in, I starting to ask for drinks with "light" alcohol. You have to sign up for the speed boat for the free water-skiing, tubing or wake boarding. There is only one boat, so you need to sign up in the morning. The kayaking, paddleboarding, hobie cat, and wind surfing is all free and available at any time. The beach service is SLOW. Getting drinks there generally isn't an issue, but ordering food at the beach takes a long, long time. One day we waited 70 minutes for the food and it was soggy by the time it got to us. The customer service is amazing. Melinda greeted us when we were about to get on the boat to the island. She has a bubbly personality and answered all our questions. Lorenz at the beach area was so friendly and patient. At the villa, wifi was hit or miss.

returned from Jumby bay a couple of weeks ago i have to say the resort was lovely nice rooms nice grounds beach pool etc, the restaurants were very good with plenty of choice for everyone, we were a party of 6 adn no-one was dissapointed with any meal, even though the service was sometimes slow but thats the carribean all over and actually adds to its charm, which take me to the staff this place has great staff that all care about the place its self and the visitors, jenny at the beach bar was the best bar person i have ever come across, funny friendly and she could mix a cocktail, also susie at the pool bar we were all on our sunloungers away from the bar but she never let us go thirsty and being its an all inclusive resort she wasnt making us spend money just giving us great service, all in all a great time and sometime in the future would love to return

We're turning into one of those couples who keep going back to the same place every year, such is the magical draw of Jumby Bay.

The beach is stunning, rooms are beautiful, food amazing and the people are so warm and friendly. You just can't get bored of this place.

We are already wondering if we can squeeze in another trip next year...

From the moment you step onto Jumby Bay you know your someplace special. Its stunningly beautiful, tranquil and from the first person you meet on arrival to the last person on leaving....warm and friendly. The accommodation was superb, we had our own pool and the suite overlooked the beach. The fridges were well stocked, the restaurants were all superb, in fact there is nothing negative to say about this holiday. I know its not for everyone as it was very expensive but its the first time we've been away and thought it was worth every penny!! Hopefully going back next year.

Room Tip: We were in suite 23 which was fabulous, its not a hotel its just a series of suites so to be honest...
