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...

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...

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...

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...

If you are looking for the most decadent, relaxing, magnificent experience imaginable (and have the money to make it happen), Jumby Bay is your place, whether for a romantic getaway or a large family gathering.

This is one of the top resorts in the Caribbean! Starting with the accomodations the beachfront suite was absolutely the best we have ever experienced in the Caribbean.

When you have a magical experience on your first visit to somewhere, on the second time it can seem as if the sparkle has disappeared along with familiarity. Not so with Jumby Bay - because this is an extraordinary place. It has of course physical beauty, space and tranquility. What we love is the ability to combine sport and relaxation...
