From the moment you are met at your gate and whisked through Customs and taken to a very nice Catamaran ferry, until you leave and are whisked through customs again, it was the perfect vacation with every detail thought of! The hotel or villas are spacious, beautiful and have outdoor showers, in room fully stocked refrigerator and anything you could want. The staff are genuinely interested in you having a great experience! This is a place to go for relaxing and having great food, drinks and enjoying the most beautiful beaches anywhere! It is like a small private club as there about only about 60 private houses and about the same number of guest suites. You are treated like a member of the club with some great amenities. Sailing on the Hobie Cats, boating or skiing, biking and beach chairs with great food and drink. The food is fabulous! We had a great variety from the higher end Estate House to the Pool Grill, which had some of our favorite dishes. Pool House Grill: gazpacho verde (avocado based), prawns, grouper were all amazing. Veranda: breakfast had house made croissants, great yogurt, omelettes, fresh juices, cappuccinos, hash browns, eggs Benedict and so much more! Beach service had great fish tacos and shrimp tostadas. Estate House Fine Dining: soufflés, tuna appetizer, scallops, lamb, risotto, cheese plate for dessert and lemon tart This is not a place to go to play golf, shop, sightsee or night life. It is a very relaxing place and 5 days is a perfect amount of time.

Stunning stay at a spectacular resort. From the moment we arrived in style on the Jumby Bay launch the staff were fabulous. The General Manager Will leads by example with complete customer focus and attention to detail to ensure a perfect stay. The suite we had was opulent and practical with quality furniture and accessories throughout. From the magnificent accommodation manager Ashley to all the housekeeping staff, beach and restaurant crews nothing was too much trouble . It is clear they value their positions and are happy to be part of the Jumby team. All this and a fantastic beach to complete the paradise location. We stayed at another excellent resort on Antigua the week before our Jumby experience but nothing can surpass this. Thank you one and all.

I have stayed at a lot of places all over the world. This was one of the more expensive stays. Price is not everything, but when you pay a premium, you expect things to be a little better than average. I am not an overly picky guy, but I do notice almost everything regardless of the topic. Here's what I liked- Upon arrival we were met by a jumby bay rep, and accompanied through the airport, and brought to a waiting car. It made you feel taken care of, but the airport is small, and not crowded so it would have been a breeze to navigate without help. The ferry over was nice, and only had a few guests on it. The people welcoming you and explaining your stay were very friendly, in fact we did not meet anyone that worked at JBI that was not friendly and accommodating. our room was beautiful, the outdoor tub and shower were a great feature, and although we were a little further away than most it was still only a 10 minute walk to breakfast, etc.. Our bed was extremely comfortable and clean drinks were good, easy to get, no lines etc. Genny's bar was a great location to order lunch, or have a drink. White night was very nice, and felt kind of special for us. well done and the food was better than most other nights. What we didn't care for- We are there for 7 nights, and there are essentially two places for dinner, and one (the estate house) is only open a few days a week so many nights it is just the veranda. The veranda menu is marginal at best. It has FOUR meals listed under Entree. If you don't care for or perhaps can't eat something, good luck. For this kind of money, I want a MENU with choices, or a menu that changes a night or two a week. Very limited, and honestly the food was just ok. There was NO LOBSTER. Lobster season is closed. They told us many guests don't come when lobster season is closed because they enjoy the food so much more. We would be those guests, but there was no information on the JBI website stating the season was closed, only menus with various entrees including many with lobster, which we were excited to try. My wife even had her first nights meal planned. yes we love food, and this should be disclosed. It mattered to us, and according to JBI, others as well. Wait staff takes your order and doesn't write anything down..That is GREAT- IF you get the order correct. At almost every meal we had an issue with the orders being correct, and many times the staff had come back two or MORE times to ask again what we wanted. I am not talking about anything difficult we are not picky eaters, and in fact never sent anything back, we just ate what they brought. When you're hungry you want to eat, and not watch your spouse eat their food while you wait another 20 minutes for your order to be corrected.. I am talking about ordering an omelette with three ingredients and getting two wrong, after you ask three times. There is no reason or excuse here. Write it down and get it right, or don't, IF you can remember. The gift shop should be closed. It is an egregious attempt to sell products at ridiculous prices (women's bathing suits for $500, mens t shirts for $300). It made me feel like because we could afford to pay to stay here it was ok to try to get every guest for whatever they could. Honestly the feeling I got in the "gift" shop made me sick about JBI. We had a visit from a nurse because my wife hurt her back. The nurse was very friendly, but called me and said she had to "outsource a heating pad if she could locate one it would be $180+. I agreed because I believed we needed it. It showed up in about 10 minutes, so again, are you outsourcing, or did you have it and just want us to pay 15x what it is worth? My wife was very upset and made me return it. Paths are not well lit for bicycle riding after dark, and the transitions from walkway to lawn/gravel are high in some places which could present a problem for older folks, or bike riding. Circumnavigation was not something I would do again, it was essentially a boat ride around JBI, where we were told the name of every house, most of which you can't see much of. the pools are some of the worst I have been to at a resort of this caliber. One pool is at the pool grille, and in a week I never saw anyone in it. It would be like swimming in the middle of a restaurant, so I get it, but they need a pool guests can use comfortably, that is nice, and has a bar. Also, there is not a jacuzzi on the property. Farm dinner was decent, but I let there actually starving. portions are tiny, and I'm not a big guy. The estate house bar was beautiful but the food was served in very small portions, and again, the menu is very limited. We were scheduled for a 10:45 ferry to go home for a 1:45 flight. The ferry and ride took us exactly 15 minutes and we sat in the airport for 2 1/2 hours plus. Again, a small airport, not crowded and easy to navigate. We could have gone an hour later - but when I requested a later ferry I was told I could pay $100/pp to go later. Again, it felt insincere, and greedy. We paid enough already IMO. I wanted to sit at Genny's barr and enjoy our last hour or so talking about our trip. Lastly, I have been home three days, and still have not received an email with my final charges from Jumby. They did email me to tell me it is coming, but still no bill. It should be a part of the check out process. They email you an itinerary every morning so it would seem to be very easy to email out a final invoice the night before you leave, but I received nothing. For me, one hundred percent, this place is over rated.

If you're looking for a luxurious, beautiful, quiet, safe and peaceful getaway in the Caribbean Jumby Bay is the place for you. From the moment the staff met us at the airport and walked us quickly through customs to the moment we boated back to the mainland and the staff once again walked us quickly through customs - the resort is at the top of its game! The staff was friendly, caring and very service oriented. We rented a villa, and it was clean, comfortable and the house manager, Marissa, was top-notch. The food was excellent, and the island beautiful. The island was also super safe being isolated. I highly recommend it for couples or families looking for a peaceful, yet fun and active getaway.

2023 marked our fifth annual girls trip to Jumby Bay. The villa, food and service have always been exceptional. However, this year the staff went above and beyond to make our trip special and make us feel like part of the Jumby Bay family. Thanks to Linden, Tanzania, Marion, Dino, Akeila, Jackie and Xaiah for making our trip perfect. All of you went above and beyond to take care of us and took the extra time to get to know about us and our families. We shared good times and many laughs with you this year and look forward to returning in 2024 and seeing each of you again. Thanks for everything!

Just wrapped another trip at Jumby Bay, while different it was equally if not more wonderful. 5 years ago my husband and I enjoyed the resort solo, this time we took our two young daughters. The rooms are gigantic, comfortable, beautiful. The water- beautifully clear with a sugar sand beach. Water sports are - incredible. Vaughn literally taught me to “drop the rope” and wakesurf in two tries. When you said the words “All inclusive” there is a stigma , but the drinks, meals and service are 5 star. Towards the end of our trip, our 7 year old got sick and the entire resort led by GM Will, bent over backwards to help. Be sure to take advantage of all the resort has to offer (White Party, Visit to on property farm to pet sheep, see baby turtles and chickens, Complementary bicycles).

We spent a few amazing days at Jumby Bay. What an incredible place!! There are great places to go on vacation and then there are simply great experiences….. Jumby is most certainly the latter. From the moment we stepped onto the dock in Antigua we knew we were in for something special. After 7 minutes (we timed it!) on the boat and by the time we were greeted at the dock by Rozanne & Ashley (with cocktails in hand and who were both so helpful throughout our stay), we had our flip flops already on and the stress level from life in NYC was already cut in half and it only got better from there. We stayed in Pool suite with our two kids, and it was a perfect set up for our family. Given the island’s set up, the kids were able to get up when they wanted, hop on their bikes and ride around the island, visit the farm to visit the sheep, play on the beach or stop by the Veranda for breakfast. With no need to worry about room keys, cars or strangers on the island not only did the whole experience allow us to relax as parents but allowed the kids some independence. Jumby Bay quite simply redefines the term all inclusive. And everyone is SO friendly! There were so many highlights and people we would like to thank to give this review some context, but we can’t remember all of them. Shawn and Alex who ran the all the watersports/snorkeling trip were brilliant. Shawn was so patient with our daughters during our snorkeling trip to make sure they saw everything and that they were comfortable in the water. We were also totally comfortable letting the kids go out on their own tubing and waterskiing during the day. Many thanks to Patel and his team for a couple of stunning dinners at the Estate House. Not only was the food superb, service immaculate but the whole atmosphere gives such diversity to the culinary options at the resort. Finally, a special mention to the whole crew at the beach bar - always ready to have a chat about sports, politics, life in general they were always welcoming and super friendly (the kind of guys who would probably remember your name and pick up the last conversation if you went back 12 months later!) Obviously, we didn’t like Jumby much 😉 we honestly can’t think of a single experience we didn’t like.! We hope to come back very soon to this amazing island! It's worth every penny!

This place is truly spectacular. we recently took a short family vacation to Jumby Bay Island, and it didn't disappoint. From the moment we arrived every detail was flawless. We were met at the airport by Janet, a member of the Jumby team and driven a short distance to the dock where a private boat was on hand to take us to the Island. On arrival we were greeted with their signature cocktail, before being whisked away to our poolside suite, which was extremely spacious and well laid out. From that moment on until we departed my wife and I felt completely relaxed and pampered, while our kids were kept busy with the numerous water activities on offer, not to mention the opportunity to explore the natural beauty of this Island. The food and beverage offerings throughout our stay were finely curated and there were multiple dinning locations to choose from. The team on the Island are exceptional at delivering what can only be described as six-star service. A few notable mentions include Sean who took care of all our water activities, Abbigail and Kendia in the restaurant, Patricia and Kisca from the Estate House, and not forgetting Mario from the Verandah bar who makes the best "Old Fashioned" I've ever Had! A couple of tips, get up early and take a walk over to pasture bay, you won't regret it. Try the Rum tasting, outstanding selection, and if you've a sweet tooth the tableside souffle at the Estate House is a must! Looking forward to returning to paradise soon..........

Water sports, beach lounger service and attention to detail all round. Jumby is the place to relax and unwind. Easy to get around by foot, bike or buggy and completely safe. Families can choose from a range of activities, kids club, spa, snorkelling or just relaxing on the beach.
