My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Jumby Bay. I was a little worried that we wouldn't receive the full experience due to Covid, but I was quickly reassured once we arrived and I can't imagine a more perfect trip! Masks, wipes and hand sanitizer were provided in our room and hand sanitizer stations were found around the property. All staff wore masks and I felt more safe on the island than my daily routine at home. The only Covid related issue we encountered was the beach being shutdown one afternoon due to a holiday. Even though we prefer the beach, it gave us a chance to check out the pool which we otherwise would not have visited. We also had a snorkeling trip scheduled for part of that afternoon and the resort offered to reschedule to another day without hesitation. The Jumby Bay beach was our favorite spot on the island. There is sea grass growing on parts of the ocean floor, which was a little disappointing at first, but the water is clear. If the grass bothers you, there are floats provided at each beach setup. Another reviewer mentioned the airport taking away from the experience of being on the island, but my husband and I did not feel the same. We loved spending every day on the beach and the sunsets were incredible! The food, drinks and snacks were all amazing. We did not have one mediocre meal and and I'm very particular when it comes to food. We ate at all the restaurants and attended White Night, Caribbean Night and Farm to Table Night. Even though I was originally hesitant about the Farm to Table evening, it was our favorite. We did not attend many other events offered, such as cooking classes or wine tastings, but we did take the Sunset Cruise and highly recommend! The staff is what makes this island truly special. Ashley helped me tremendously with planning our trip, answered several questions and made our meal reservations. Dariane and Colton were very informative upon arrival and throughout our stay. Akelia and Ishmael always greeted us at the Veranda for breakfast each morning and made sure our orders were perfect. Indi, Maureen, Giant and Omarie always made sure we had everything we needed at the beach. Sherard always made great suggestions at the Estate House for dinner and Jade', which served us each night at the Veranda Bar, made sure I got a special dessert before leaving. I highly suggest the soufflés at the Estate House - especially the chocolate soufflé! It was a wonderful experience and we can't wait to visit Jumby Bay again!

We have visited Jumby Bay annually for many many years and absolutely love it. We were so sorry to have missed our trip this past year. The beach is beautiful. The water is lovely. The people are wonderful and it’s just a magical getaway. Unfortunately the prices in the past year or so have increased tremendously. We so want to come back for another visit but the prices will prevent that. Too bad. We miss you Jumby Bay.

Just finished a magical stay at Jumby Bay Island and it exceeded every expectation. I'm fortunate to have visited some of the best hotels in the world and I can honestly say Jumby is probably my favorite. The beauty of the place is matched by the staff who elevate the experience to the next level. Due to all the safety measures in place Jumby Bay is one of the safest places you can visit today. If you can afford it I urge you to do so. It's an experience you will remember for the rest of your life. Thank you Jumby from HS. Room 21.

Jumby Bay, a very high- end resort, has much to recommend it for the luxury traveler. Our Ocean Front room was beautifully decorated, with a sleek contemporary look, and big wonderful bathroom. It also had a large patio with comfortable lounge chairs and table. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. The polite and friendly staff was most accommodating to every request. The beach is white sand and the water clear and calm for easy swimming. All day long beach servers walked up and down the beach offering delicious snacks and beverages. The swimming pool at the beach is lovely, but often was busy with children who were staying at the luxury homes on the island. A fun expedition is the free boat tour of the private homes around the island. The only negative at the resort to us is that when sitting on the beach, the view across the bay is of the airport. For us this very much took away that wonderful feeling we hoped for of being far away in a special location. We did not like the constant visual reminder that home and the real world were staring us in the face. For this reason-and this reason only, we will probably not return.

An ideal getaway. Private beaches, beautiful landscaping. Great restaurants, a spa. Private pools and a boat to get there. Fantastic. Not cheap but as private and as spoiled as one could ever be. Truly the most beautiful spot in the Caribbean.
