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 Our room however was very outdated and in need of a good cleaning.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

Stayed for three days. The size and amount of roaches, yes roaches, not water bugs kept getting bigger by the size and number. I stayed in the Ellington building. 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

Villas by the Sea are individually owned, so two rooms are not alike. We were lucky and got a great unit that was updated. However, we looked at other units and most were dated. They were clean but had the feel of the 80's. While you do not have direct access to the beach, the beach is easily accessible and... More

I enjoyed my stay at the villas. We rented a 1 bedroom and it was really nice. I had read the reviews before booking the room so my expectations were realistic. As others have mentioned, there's no direct ocean view from the first floor and I did see a water bug in the kitchen crawling on the wall. We drove... More

The front desk personell were very nice. We enjoyed the room, but would of given this location 5 STARS if there was a television in the bedroom. The bathroom was kind of small, but it was okay. Only wish we had more pillows. Had a few bugs stroll through, a cricket and some spiders. We did not get to see... More

Was very impressed with the location, we choose a beachside view and that made a huge difference. The area was very quiet even though they were busy. I will add that the restaurant on site was the best food we found without driving off the island. I would stay here without hesitation if I return to the area!

This is a good place to stay on Jekyll Island. I've stayed here in various units and over several years. I would give it a great, but the units vary too much to say great. I've stayed in some units that were great and some good. Each owner decorates differently so some are cottage, beach, modern, etc. I've probably stayed... More
