After spending a magical 4 nights there last year, my husband & I decided to return to Jumby Bay for the holiday season, bringing along my mom, a friend, and our 2 children, aged 10 & 12. We rented a 3-bedroom, 3 1/2 bath villa, complete with its own pool and 2 golf carts, and it was perfect; the only downside was the hefty price tag, which I believe was at least doubled for the holiday season. The villa was newly redone--we were the first to stay in it--and it was beautiful. The fridge was stocked before we arrived--sodas, beer, wines, tons of fresh fruit, even potato chips, chocolate bars and Oreos for the kids!
Despite the fact that the resort was completely booked for the holidays, we still felt like it was empty. Never a problem getting a table at any of the restaurants or a place on the beach or at the pools, and the service remained impeccable. They go above and beyond to take care of you, it's sheer luxury.
My kids enjoyed the freedom being on a private island afforded them, and had a great time riding their bikes all over. They even went to the mainland one day with the kids' club to go ziplining.
Private picnic at Pasture Bay Beach was again a highlight, and the New Years' Eve party they put on was nothing short of spectacular!
We will all definitely be going back to Jumby Bay Island.
