Been there about 6 times now and always can't wait to go back! Everyone is so helpful of anything you need. I would highly recommend this place to anyone! There is plenty to do, great restaurants, fun bars, etc... We went for New Years and had a blast! Met new people and had a great time and the cab drivers are always nice. Anyways all together this is a great place to stay with family or friends... I think everyone should experience this place!

We have stayed here several times and we have never been disappointed. It's clean,comfortable ,and their prices are very reasonable. We have stayed in all three buildings and we have been pleased everytime.The employees are always so helpful and kind. We had a problem with a hairdryer one time and minutes after reporting it to the front desk someone was at the condo to fix it.

We have been coming to VBTS for years and years and have never, ever had a bad experience. Sometimes the quality of the units differ, in that some are more dated than others. But if you book online you can see photos of the available units and it makes it easy to chose the perfect place! The staff is always super nice and helpful! We love Village by the Sea!!!

My family and I have been going to Village by the Sea for many years and have never been disappointed. We do a "cousins" weekend every Mother's Day, usually renting many units. My sister and I have been going up the day after Christmas for several years as well, and usually stay 4-5 nights with various family members coming and going. We have stayed in many different units and have always been 100% satisfied. The staff there is wonderful, from the folks at the reservation desk, to the housekeeping staff. They are all very accommodating. I will usually check their website, as they often offer special deals and I try to take advantage when I can. We will continue to frequent this place as often as possible.
