Reviews for Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort
Every other review before has said it all but I must say it again. What an island, ten minutes from Antigua by boat. From the minute you arrive until you unfortunately have to leave everything is just first class plus. Beautiful villa, beach is a view to behold as is the striking colour of the water. Do not think my wife and myself have felt so relaxed for a long time. Staff could not have been better, so friendly and restaurants were superb especially the Estate House. Made the mistake of going to Rum History and tasting, now love rum! Everything you could wish for was there whether young or old.

We've been focusing our spring travels in the Caribbean the last few years and Jumby Bay has been at the top of our too visit list. Finally went there for a week in March 2017 with my 12 year old daughter and 21 year old niece. Following is my thoughts on the visit. Good Stuff Beautiful location. You are secluded on your own island about a half mile off the coast. The only way to get there is by the hotel's ferry. This leads to great views of the water and the island of Antigua proper. The hotel itself is very nice. Fits in very well with the surroundings. Things are spread out enough to give you a sense of space, but nothing is too far away. Also, you feel very secure. No need to lock the doors. Great Food You are going to eat all of you meals at the property. There are not many appealing options to eat off property. However, the hotel does an excellent job keeping it interesting for guests. Besides the two restaurants, the hotel does a few special meal set ups during the week. One was a barbeque at the beach bar, the other was one they called White Night at the main restaurant. This injects some variety. Additionally, all of the food is excellent. Didn't have a bad meal. Activities Lots of scheduled activities, great spa and plus they will organize whatever you want. We wanted a private sunset cruise, so they obtained a fabulous boat with the most entertaining crew. Great stuff. Staff They work very hard to please, but are not over bearing. Was very impressed. The Not So Good Stuff Management I've stayed at a lot of resorts of this level and was surprised at the lack of visibility of management. Usually, they are around a lot talking with the guests. Here they were not to be seen at all. Room We had one of the one bedroom pool suites because we had three people. It was a wonderful room. However, in similar type resorts this class of room will have a powder room. This one did not. This struck me as a serious defect when you have three people to a room. I'm not trying to be picky, it was just a noticeable flaw. Why four stars instead of five? The hotel was wonderful, it was just lacking the "OMG" factor that would make me give it five stars. All in all a great place.

As long as you enjoy a quiet island, the setting is ideal. The beach is beautiful, the accommodations are excellent and the food at the restaurants is very good; especially at The Estate House. As you see in the other reviews though, what sets Jumby Bay apart is the people and the service. At most great resorts, you find a few great employees who go above and beyond but at Jumby, almost everyone you come in contact with is genuinely friendly. They look for opportunities to enhance your experience and cannot do enough.
Jumby Bay is paradise at its best. It's located on a private beach just a short ferry ride from mainland Antigua. You are treated like royalty from the second you deplane in Antigua. The food is delicious. The beaches are peaceful and private. The staff actually enjoys making their guests happy. The only con is the resort is very spread out. They will have drivers take you any where, anytime on golf carts but I'd prefer a golf cart with each room so you can have more spontaneity and privacy. Overall, this is a magical place. No resort I've ever stayed cones anywhere close to the attention to detail and service I received here. I highly recommend this resort.

Beautiful surroundings, excellent accommodation, amenities, watersports, food and drink, staff the most helpful and friendly I have ever come across. Anything you want to do can be accommodated without a fuss, transport onto Antigua, concert tickets, etc. Total luxury without pretence. This is an island resort with villa style rooms near the beach, and privately owned villas and houses, some for rental. It is not a hotel. Transport around the island is by golf cart or bicycle. Or walk of course! Beautiful beaches, several swimming pools and restaurants, Cocktails are amazing.
