My new husband and I spent the first 5 nights of our honeymoon at Jumby Bay, and it was everything we wanted it to be. The service was excellent - very friendly, accommodating and eager to please. You could tell that they tried to do everything to make sure we were comfortable, and they moved quickly to correct things if this wasn't the case. The food did not disappoint, especially the breakfast buffet and dinner at the Estate House. We had no complaints at all with regards to the food. In addition, you can't beat the setting of this resort. A private island with lots of paths to ride your bike or go for a jog, as you either admire the ocean view or the beautiful grounds (reminiscent of Caneel Bay in St. John, USVI). The beach was the perfect balance of peace and quiet with some action. We had a great time wind surfing, paddle boarding, water skiing, kayaking and taking out the hobie cat. My husband and I both got a massage at their spa, and mine was so relaxing that I could hardly function for the rest of the day! It was amazing! Our room (#12) was comfortable, clean and quite lovely. It had a nice patio with chase loungers, a table, glider chairs and a plunge pool. The room itself had high ceilings, a separate bathroom and shower, dual sinks, an area with a make-up mirror and a flat screen TV. It also had a nice view of the property and a small view of the beach. The hotel was nice enough to have a bottle of Champagne on ice and a cake with 2 hearts coming together for us upon our arrival. A great touch for honeymooners, or any celebratory occasion! While there were some misses that did not put this resort on the same level as a Four Seasons, Jumby Bay is tough to beat. We loved it there and would highly recommend it as a relaxing getaway.
