Reviews for Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort
We love Jumby Bay, the level of service here is on another level. We have had three trips to this beautiful island. If you want somewhere to relax and do nothing this is the place to go! Nothing is too much trouble my children liked the cookies, they mentioned it to someone and then everyday some were delivered to the suite. These small things make a big difference. The only fault is we normally go for 10-14 days and the menu gets a bit boring but I'm 100% sure if you fancied something not on the menu the staff would go out there way to give you what you like. I now spend many days dreaming when will we return to Jumby Bay.....
Jumby Bay is a beautiful private island reached by power launch from Antigua mainland only 10 minutes from the airport. First impressions are of the chic little dock reception they have built and the super smart boat that takes you over to Jumby and the sight of the beautiful beach lifts one's spirits. I chose this venue with careful consideration having been there previously with my husband and was returning now, solo, as a widow. I knew the staff would remember us and I knew they would make me welcome - and they did! I chose a traditional Rondavel suite which was beautiful - had an outdoor patio shower, a little dip pool, a terrace and a wonderful view of the sea. Also within easy walking distance of the reception, restaurants and beach The hotel has upgraded a lot of facilities since my last visit and I thought the improvements were excellent. The beach is one of the best I have ever been to and with non stop service of snacks and drinks, (included) a beach bar and an infinity pool/grill it is an endless source of pleasure. It is not easy to "holiday" alone in an atmosphere as romantic and heavenly as this, but the staff are truly kind, caring, chatty, helpful and fun. Without their input I would have been a bit lost! That said, the other guests are also happy to make conversation and to dine and drink with a solo - this is not always the case! The food is very good and the calibre of the inclusive drinks particularly the wines has definitely improved substantially over the years. The hotel provides a sufficient amount of evening entertainment to keep you happy and the time does not seem to drag even on one's own. There are little excursions and activities to keep you busy, a handy little shop with great beach wear and a spa. I cannot stress enough how great the staff are - they make the visit and they make you want to return. Nothing is too much trouble and they genuinely care whether you are having a good time or not. A lot of hotels have no idea how to look after solo lady guests - happily this one does.

It is a beautiful resort and island. All of the staff there were extremely friendly and helpful. The food and service is out of this world! We also enjoyed a trip to the mainland to St. Johns and the Naval dock.

Our fourth trip to Antigua and first to Jumby Bay. Previous years we stayed at a "five star" property on the mainland. Frankly, Jumby Bay puts that property to shame. What a difference a 7 minute boat ride to Jumby makes. The vibe is totally different and even the sea life is different. In previous years, I may have seen one star fish, at Jumby, you make a point to not accidentally step on one. That along with fishes, conches and even a baby stingray! The accommodation was immaculate (pool suite) and service was top notch. I won't get into the details but do yourself a favor and experience Jumby Bay if you have the chance.

What can i say about this place?! It is truly the most beautiful place i have ever been lucky enough to visit! Where to start? The good: The beach. Absolutely amazing. We counted 11 other people on the main beach including us most days, it was so peaceful, so quiet and so so beautiful. The water is crystal clear, calm and warm like a bathtub. The accommodation. We stayed in a friends villa there called 'sea pigeon'. It, like most/all villas was outstanding. We had our own pool that backed onto a private stretch of beach only meters away, along with our own golf buggy to explore the island with. Next, the Food. The food was fantastic!! there are only a few restaurants to chose from on the island but it doesnt matter. ALL of the food, and we tired a lot, was amazing. Freshly prepared, cooked with love and you could tell from how it tasted. I particularly liked the white night on the beach where they had a jerk grill going going- the chicken and ribs were superb. The staff were also exceptional the whole way through our trip, friendly and eager to help, i still keep in contact with one of them via facebook (4+ years later) thats how good friends we became! I honestly cannot say enough good things about this Jumby Bay. If you want complete and utter relaxation, along with beautiful white sanded beaches and exquisite food.. this is the place to come!! Mainland Antigua is also only a short boat ride away. Now for the bad.. There wasn't any! I can honestly say we did not have one complaint for the whole of our two week stay. The only thing i could pick on is the price! This was a once in a lifetime trip for us and we wont be able to afford to go back, however this was an experience i will never forget! If you have the money to spend, i would highly recommend this resort, i cant imagine anyone being unimpressed by this place. Every person we spoke to on the island was a happy customer.. I think that says it all! The best trip i have ever, and probably will ever, have.
