We had a nice time at Jumby Bay, however to compare this resort to other 5 star properties in the Caribbean at similar price point is ridiculous. ROOMS: I need to start by saying the Rondavel rooms are shocking. I actually have second-hand embarrassment for Oetker that they

My husband stumbled on Jumby Bay while searching for a luxury resort to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Jumby is an AMAZING resort with an awesome staff! From the moment we stepped off the airplane until we boarded again we were catered to. A few minor glitches during out

One of the most relaxing vacations we have taken. Food at the main house was amazing and the Sunday white beach BBQ so lovely. The staff could teach other venues about hospitality, they were the best I’ve experienced. Starfish in the water just off shore, sea turtle hatchery,

We came here directly from 5 days at Sandy Lane in Barbados so our expectations were high. The staff were all really lovely - a big thank you to Ashakee who served us during breakfast and made us feel as if we were the only guests in the resort, and also to Doreen on the beach

Located just off the eastern (windward) side of Antigua just a short car then boat ride to this island resort from the airport. It was not clear to us before arrival that we would only have access to just two of the islands beaches as the rest were exclusively for the villa

I read there are only two beaches available or the hotel guests? If so, is this adequate?
Absolutely, more than adequate! Jumby Bay is noted for their exclusiveness and that includes making sure it's not the "usual hotel" experience! You'll have plenty of space, plenty of privacy!

Do the Rondaval rooms have good views?
Not particularly, originally, 25 years ago, they were the best rooms. That has changed now and there are rooms with better views.

What is the dress code for men at the dinner restaurant?
Just casual, nice! Wear the colorful shirts you never get to wear at home! Honestly, the level of customer service, customer awareness dictates nothing. Anything goes, but wouldn't wrap a towel around myself and wear squishy flip flops. For me, a level of decorum and respect for self for an incredible experience matters! Shorts, good, but boys don't wear a tank or muscle shirt for dinner. You will always be welcomed, but for us, it's nice to do the extra!!!

"Beware of Rondavel Rooms!"
"Beach Suite was amazing with easy access to pool or beach."
"Vilas 1 & 2 or 3 & 4 would be perfect for families. They connect together with a living area in the center."
"Great Views ..... Pool Suite and Ocean Suites are great... Suite 45 has a private pool and wonderful view with a well appointed suite."
"Choose beachfront and you can be dipping your toes in the Caribbean in less than a minute after leaving your porch."
