As the host of a golf tournament celebrating its 24th year on Jekyll Island, I am continually amazed at the tremendous value and hospitality we receive each year from the staff at Villas by the Sea. The price is always right, the staff is always courteous, and the condos continue to be upgraded year after year. It makes for a... More

Traveling with kids it's important to have multiple bedrooms and plenty of room. This place has both set on beautiful grounds and very quiet for a large property. The accommodations were very clean and the staff was very nice. The only complaint (if you can call it that) is the lack of a beach. This is not their fault so... More

For our first anniversary, my husband and I decided to visit Jekyll Island to celebrate. Our first options for hotels were booked up because of a race that was occurring on the island that weekend, but we were not dismayed and kept looking for a hotel. We finally found a room at Villas-by-the Sea and booked it. When we arrived,... More

The wedding planner executed every detail flawlessly, if your dream is an ocean front wedding and reception this is the spot for you. Villas by the sea chef and staff also prepared the wedding dinner which was called... More

Villas were all literally right in the beachfront and each within 50 feet of the pool, lobby, and bar. The price was great compared the to rest of the island. AND they hotel was fantastic at event setup and service. If you're headed to Jekyll, make sure to stay here!

I grew up on the beach and prefer places that embrace the calming feel of a beachfront community. There wasn't really anything fancy about the Villas, it was just cozy and comfortable and RIGHT ON the beach. Also, the room, kitchen and arrangements were simple and just enough for a weekend at the beach.

My daughter had her wedding on the boardwalk at Villas By the Sea. The services were perfect. The villa personnel handled everything without any complications or confusion. The villas were easily accessible, clean and comfortable. My husband and I plan on a return visit.

The villa we stayed in was breathtaking, we also had 10 other units where friends and family stayed and they were all above par! Hotel staff was very courteous and knowledgable about the island and surrounding areas. The wedding was perfect, the... More

Luckily our stay wasn't as bad as the last two reviews but I've stayed at Comfort Inn/Best Westerns that were nicer and cheaper. We eventually moved and stayed at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel and had friends staying at the Hampton Inn & Suites. From our experiences and our friends Hampton Inn & Suites appears to be the best place... More

We are truly sorry you did not feel that we exceeded your expectations. We wish you could have stay more than just one night. Perhaps you would have had more time to enjoy the advantages of a kitchen and separate bedroom from living area. We hope you will visit us again and stay longer and take advantage of the great...

As we reflect on the wedding weekend, the words "exceeding expectations with dynamic service" describes our Experience at Villas by the Sea. The wedding planning began about one year ago and Tammy provided information and timely communication. Renea was extremely helpful with room reservations and accommodating physically challenged guests. She gave attention to detail with a gracious and warm personality.... More
