While visiting Jekyll Island, we discovered a wonderful place - Villas By the Sea Resort. We were looking for a quiet, private, relaxing place to escape the pressures of work and were so impressed with area. Our room was clean, the service was great and we had a great time. Now that we know where to stay, we will return... More

I loved the location and comfort that I experienced. It was so quiet, peaceful and lovely with all the amenities I needed within walking distance. It was wonderful to sit on my balcony and watch the shrimp boats while the sun rose over the Atlantic. I plan on going back!

The staff at the Villas were some of the friendliest people I have meet in years. They were constantly addressing you whenever I contact occurred. We stayed in a 3... More

The room was dirty, mold in the bathroom and the dust and dirt on the ceiling fan in the bedroom must have been there for years. I found several roaches. The shower was disgusting and leaked all over the floor. The boardwalk entrance to the "beach" (beach, you have got to be joking) was out of order. The towels at... More

I have inspected the unit these guests rented. I was notified about these comments by tripadvisor.com 1 day after the guests’ departure. I found no mold and the room was spotless. It was cleaned right after they departed. I can only assume that the condition of the room when they checked-in was the same as I found it because there... More

My son graduated from OCS school in Columbus GA and we needed a close by place to stay and talk. This was a wonderful resting place. It sounds odd to say there is not much to do here but enjoy nature. i don't thing there is another place like Jekyll Island remaining along the east coast. The staff was very... More

I was a little concerned by some of the reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. Our villa was a little outdated but clean and comfortable for the most part--the bed was a little uncomfortable. Be aware that there is not much beach except at low tide--but beautiful Driftwood Beach is a quarter mile walk and suited us perfectly. The boardwalk... More

We have stayed at the Villas by the Sea before and are very glad to have had the opportunity to stay again. Our Villa was charming and very comfortable. The accommodations here are always extremely clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We also did the horseback riding excursion on the beach and were very happy that we... More
