First, of you are looking for a beautiful beach vacation Jekyll island is not the place. Stick with the gulf!
We stayed in a villa, like a town home with a downstairs kitchen/living room and 2 bedrooms upstairs.
Kitchen: decently stocked, little dish soaps and towels, working appliances
Bedrooms: good size, plenty of storage
Beds very soft, stingy with pillows
Bathroom: good size, if you have kids specifically ask for a unit with a bathtub.
Service: rooms were not cleaned during our 4 day stay. Towels were switched and trash cans were emptied.
Overall: beach is "available" from 2-4pm otherwise tide is too high and no beach is usable. Pool is nice but no food available for the family and it's very shady, so the pool is freezing. There were a few bugs in our condo, but I guess it's expected on such a natural island. Had to pack up the family and drive 5 minutes to a beach that was usable the whole day. The units are really decent, a bit old but not horrible.
