Without a doubt, one of the Caribbean's best properties. Also, as frequent traveler to Rosewood hotels and resorts, one of our favorite Rosewood stays. Great food, accomodations, water...everything needed for a wonderful, relaxing escape.

I've stayed twice before at Jumby Bay and was then impressed by the quality of the food and the abundance and variety of the dishes served. However, coming back for the third time, I was very disappointed. I must give a thorough review of the decay of the resort! Breakfast had become poor, no jam apart from two varieties served... More

Paradise Found I have recently come back from a short stay on Jumby Bay in the West Indies and feel as though I have found Paradise. After a pleasant boat ride from Antigua to Jumby Bay your fist glimpse of the Island leaves you breathless. The Palm tress, foliage and tropical flowers are picture perfect. Although it had been dry... More

Its a lovely relaxed place with an old Caribbean flavour. Set on its own island with roads frequented by bicycles and golf buggies its a great place for a family holiday where you can relax and let the kids have fun. The main beach is just fabulous in a perfect setting. The staff are very friendly with a sense of... More

Jumby Bay is a nightmare. Getting to the room, is not very pretty – it takes a long time to track down your room. I was extremely disappointed it wasn’t all lush and green, rather, it was a burnt grass landscape. The villa was horrible – three bedrooms and three baths. The air conditioning systems were atrocious. They were only... More

We spent 10 wonderful days at Jumby Bay in October for our honeymoon. After reading all the horrible reviews we were a little worried. Since there were very few people staying at the resort we were upgraded to an oceanview suite. It had an amazing view of the ocean! Dinner at the Estate House was a treat! I don't think... More

I've been traveling to the Caribbean for 10 years now and this is by far and away my favourite holiday. The island itself is beautiful, never feels crowded and is populated by a group of fellow holidaymakers who want to have a relaxed good time. The staff are excellent, partiucularly the bar staff headed up by Jenny. The food is... More

We like to find a warm spot each January and have traveled to many very nice island resorts…big and small. We've just returned from Jumby Bay and enjoyed our 5 quick days. I had some reservations about booking JB after reading some reviews on this board; but, on we went. I can understand a few negatives; however, I felt they... More

I was shocked to read that some people had a negative experience at Jumby Bay. I just got back from the island with my husband and it was such an incredible vacation.

We should have listened to our hotel when they warned us about Jumby Bay Resort. You have to access the hotel on an island by a water taxi and we were told "they will leave you stranded on the dock for hours." That's exactly what happened. We got there a few hours early and a Jumby Bay hotel employee accosted... More
