We've just spent the most relaxing 10 days at Jumby Bay. Everything was perfect. Ok, you need deep pockets but quality like this inevitably comes at a price. However, once you're there, you don't need to pay for a thing. The vibe here is super relaxed. Understated elegance is the way of life on Jumby. 300 acre private island with...

Great place to spend your time, great food in a good choice of resturants, top level of service by very friendly and helpful staff,nothing seems to be a problem to them. The island is wonderfully peaceful with an amazing beach (with usual service). This is our third visit and the resort seems to improve each time, can't wait to revisit.

Jumby Bay is spectacular, stunning, luxurious and fabulous. It's all these things whilst being incredibly friendly and welcoming. Perhaps there are other private islands around the world where everyone from the staff who run the resort, the ground staff to the (very) well-heeled home owners treat you in such a friendly way. If there are, I've never heard of them....

Usually, when I write a TripAdvisor review, I break my review up into three parts: The good, the bad, and the ugly. But after having just returned from several days at Jumby Bay, I have almost no negative comments because this place is...well, it's amazing.

Wow! This was the best vacation ever. The staff was amazing. We (4 ppl) stayed in the Rosewood Estate Suites and my parents stayed next door (connected by a courtyard) in the Beachside Courtyard Suites. Food was delicious. Make sure you stay on Sunday for "Nightly BBQ" (wear white). Will definitely go back!

This trip was a retirement celebration and Jumby Bay filled the bill. Very pleasant and accomodating staff from the minute we got off the plane. Someone was there to meet and provide transportation and the same courteous service continued throughout the holiday. Food was excellent. Beds very comfortable. All very lovely. Very hot in mid-day sun in October.
