At a place like Jumby Bay, where rates start at $1,395 in the high season, you could presume that your fellow guests are just as rich if not richer than you, so what could they possibly want from your room?
This may be so, but as Landro reports, Antigua has had some issues with crime in recent years, including a fatal stabbing on the beach, and the murder of a couple of honeymooners. Jumby Bay’s GM had this response to Landro’s security concerns:
Mr. Hedley says the resort has had no crime, and has a security team supervised by a retired U.S. Secret Service agent. Only residents and staffers are allowed on the island, and all nonresidents depart each evening by ferry. Guests can lock doors from the inside, and rooms have a safe where guests can deposit valuables.
But tell us: have you stayed at any other properties where you didn’t get a room key or were worried about security? Share your fears in the comments below.
