I recently stayed here for a friend's wedding. Our villa was clean, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. We would happily stay here again in the future.

My wife and I just visited Jekyll Island for the first time. It was just a weekend getaway to relax and rejuvenate. We stayed at Villas by the Sea because of all the great feedback on TripAdvisor. We loved the hotel, our condo unit and especially all the wonderful team members. Everyone we encountered went out of their way to...

Several of us stayed here for the weekend seeing if it was right for our conference next summer. The property is more like mini condos and in some cases full condo rooms. I liked it better than a hotel. The property isn't what sold me. It was the staff. Everyone I interacted with ( and I purposely interacted with everyone...

I just got back to the Villas after evacuating for hurricane Matthew. I was so very relieved to see everything relatively unscathed at the Villas and on the island. I will be here for the month of October, as I have done once before, and look forward to another wonderful time. I stay in unit 214 and thoroughly enjoy the...

Visited after school started so the island was calm and inviting. Had a condo in a building all our own. So our thought of mid-week and after school worked out. Condo was beautiful, clean and well appointed. Although the back patio door that opened to the ocean the view was blocked by a tall dune. However, the sound and smells...

We loved the serene setting of the Villas. Our one bedroom villa was on the island side on the ground level, well-equipped, clean and comfortable. We took just a few items into the kitchen because we had read on other reviews that food storage bags or plastic food storage containers might be needed. But the kitchen was furnished with plenty...

The staff made check in a pleasant process. It took only a few moments to get our key and be on our way. They have a 24 hour shop for convenience which is nice since its a little drive to anything. Our condo, a studio, was larger than I expected. We were pleased to find there is a playground and...

This was my second stay at Villas by the Sea. Unless I'm camping this will be where I will stay. The villa was very clean. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment needed to cook most anything you want. The place is very quiet and the walk at the beach is beautiful and relaxing. For no more than the cost...

We checked out all of the hotels on the island before settling on this one. The main reason we did were Tom and Chris , the front desk agents. They gave us a great rate and checked us right in. Super friendly and helpful. Our unit was so cute and perfect! of course there is no beach view IT SAYS...

We stayed this past weekend for the 11th Annual Shrimp & Grits Festival and thought we were lucky to have found a room available to rent; however immediately upon checking-in I realized why this place still had vacancy when all the other hotels on the island were sold out. We stayed in the mini villa because that was all that...
