We really enjoyed our one night stay. Our one bedroom villa was very cozy and clean, the staff was very friendly. A very good value for the prize. They have a gift shop with very reasonable prices and a selection of old movies. We will stay there again!

We stayed in a three bedroom ocean side and it was perfect for four adults and three young boys. We enjoyed the ocean view daily, the close by laundry room, the boardwalk, and the beach during low tide, plus the sheltered beach behind the rocks during high tide. The appliances worked well and housekeeping was efficient. The front desk was... More

Room was very nice and had everything we need for our stay. Excellent access to the beach and driftwood beach. Would recommend this play to any couple or family looking for a get away. We managed to hook up our iPad to the tv and watched movies during the evening as the movie selection available at the front desk is... More

I have wonderful memories of staying here in the late 1980's with my grandparents. Recently, we had the opportunity to take advantage of a Sunday night stay deal in a studio. The price was so great, we couldn't refuse! All of the units are individually owned, so there is no "standard" room here like you can count on with a... More

Couldn't believe our eyes when several busloads of teenage schoolkids arrived at the resort Thursday afternoon, presumably for a long weekend. What bright spark thinks that this is acceptable, in a quiet family orientated resort? Last weekend a noisy family reunion group commandeered the pool area from 9.00am, till midnight, even though the pool is supposed to close at 10.00... More

We are sorry you left early. You however did not rent a Villa from Villas by the Sea Management Company which operates the resort and 146 of the Villas. You rented a Villa from a real estate rental company for which we do not operate. The Villas by the Sea is a family orientated resort. Which is why we welcome... More

While spending 2 nights (10/13-10/14), we stayed at the Villas by the Sea Resort. The hotel staff was friendly. Our room however was very outdated and in need of a good cleaning. The couch and chairs straight out of Rooms to Go appeared new. The old glider chair didn't match and was out of place. The lighting, just strange. The... More

Thanks for staying with us. We wish we had known of your concerns with the room you rented while you were here. We would have gladly found you other accommodations. We do have a couple of friendly cats that consider our resort as their home. They are harmless. Sometimes the screen doors come off the tracks. It would have been... More

Our condo unit was beach side; very easy to get to the beach. Limited views if the ocean, just due to the beach vegetation. Our unit appeared to be recently updated, and was very comfortable. Everything worked well. Water savers in shower and bathroom really weakened the water pressure, though. Very nice pool. Great reviews of the onsite restaurant. Front... More

We stayed in a Mini-villa at the place. It was one of two in the whole complex, which did not have a kitchen sink or running water in the kitchen. All water related things came from the bathroom. The ad when you click on it for Mini-villa shows a beautiful little room, with full kitchen. We said we thought it... More

Booked a stay on impulse. Had never visited Jekyll before so had no idea of what was available. There may be condos in this resort that are a good value but ours certainly was not. We were in a one bedroom unit in Ellington. The only good thing was the unit was on the ground level. The fact that the... More

I reported this at check out and front desk appeared surprised. I question their sincerity with the amount of roaches. The buildings are nice but don't appear to be maintained. Baseboards... More
