Jumby Bay provides an overall solid experience and is the perfect 4 day getaway
Location - the private Island is beautiful and peaceful. The beaches rate a solid 8/10 with almost white sand. They are not however at the level that can be found in Anguilla (pretty much nowhere is!) and the experience is marred somewhat by the weeds growing near off shore. The plane noise referenced in other reviews is there but sporadic and does not detract from overall experience.
Rooms - we stayed in a Courtyard suite. Overall the quality is more than adequate and is very spacious. At the same time there are better options in carribean (eg viceroy Anguilla)
Food and Beverage - very good for an all inclusive venue. For us we prefer the variety of selecting restaurants off property so not ideal. Again another reason why we prefer Anguilla as a destination.. House wine choices are average at best but selection and pricing of wine list is pretty good but not included.
Service - excellent for carribean standards. Much better than Anguilla. Very friendly staff who puts in great effort and genuinely seems committed to making your stay special. Every now and then there is a "Carribean" moment but nothing to mar the stay to any significant degree.
Overall morn than adequate experience but those who claim best in world status have obviously not been to Anguilla.
