My husband and I stayed here for two nights over the weekend. We were very pleased with our villa, 408. Everything was very clean upon our arrival. Our villa was two bedroom with a full kitchen. Dish soap and dishwasher detergent was provided along with the normal towels and linens. I would consider some of the furniture and decor dated.... More

Greetings Brittany- Thank you for sharing your recent experience at the Villas and we enjoy reading these type of comments! I appreciate your understanding with our privately owned satellite system issue, but unfortunately we are at the mercy of a single service company who just could not get here in a timely manner. Since all of our Villas feature a... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay on Jekyll Island, GA. We stayed at the Villas by the Sea Resort in a one bedroom condo. Location is ideal for those seeking a very quiet and serene setting. The onsite restaurant is fantastic in terms of selection and pricing. The food was so good that we ate there every night of... More

We purchased this hotel stay through Groupon. I was happy with our purchase. We went during the week so the condos were not crowded at all. When we walked on the beach it felt like we were the only ones on the beach. We also went to the boardwalk at night. It was very romantic. I would recommend to go... More

Villas by the sea was decent for the price which we paid 129.00 per night through hotels.com. Room was outdated and not the cleanest. If you want any type of ocean view make sure to request it because there is only a few that actually have a nice view. Staff was pretty nice and accommodating for the most part but... More

I stayed in a one bedroom condo with a full kitchen with a back door that opened to the pool. The condo itself initially seemed quite nice with a well-stocked kitchen and an appealing decor. But there were a few problems we encountered, with little or no attempt by hotel staff to make right. The first problem was the wifi... More

We chose Villas By the Sea for our first visit to Jekyll Island based on reviews and the price point. The front staff was friendly and accomodating upon our arrival and check in was a breeze. The grounds are well maintained with the moss draped oak trees and beautiful flowers blooming all about. There is a nice playground for the... More

I stayed at Villas by the Sea for a weekend getaway. The location was outstanding! It's right by the ocean. There's a boardwalk that provides a romantic view of the ocean and sunrise and sunset. The room we stayed in was great! We stayed in a 1 bedroom near the pool. It was very private and we could not hear... More

Villas by the Sea is located by the north end of Jekyll Island so the tides can get to their highest peaks come high tide. This can give some the impression that the beach is limited depending on the timing of the tide but if you grab a tide chart you can plan accordingly for early morning or late afternoon... More

Hello Chris T. and thank you for your kind remarks about the Villas and Jekyll Island. Just to clarify, the Villas are not a timeshare resort, as all Villas are individually owned condominiums and decorated by each owners tastes. I would like to apologize for any reservation miscommunication, as we accept travel agency reservations on a regular basis. We are... More

Hubby & I stayed here over Christmas last year and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff was very friendly and accommodated our needs since staffing was low due to the holiday. Lovely & welcoming lobby area with a little "store" inside which sells snacks, sweets, (non-alcoholic) drinks, & souvenirs. Our room was very nicely appointed & comfortable - bathroom was... More
