The Village by the Sea Condominium Resort has been our home away from home for the past 5 years during vacation time. Centrally located in Wells, the resort is ideal for walking, biking or driving to any visitor's site in the area. The local shops and eating establishments are top notch. We regard the Wells community as very tourist friendly and that is an important quality to a Vermonter!!

The individual units that we have rented are well-cleaned and well-maintained overall. Any discrepancies that we have encountered were corrected promptly by the excellent resort staff. We observed the resort staff to be happy at their work, pleasant and courteous to guests and competent in terms of their respective department skills. The prompt responses by resort staff concerning any matter, however small, has encouraged us to return repeatedly and gladly.

The Village by the Sea is indeed an affordable bargain that we greatly appreciate.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are quieter and provide a better sense of security.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel over the long weekend. I had never been here before and went by the reviews and pictures I found on their website. The hotel was great. It is conveniently located between restaurants, shops, grocery stores and there is a coffee shop right across the street. The room was huge, especially the master bedroom which had a balcony off of it. We stayed on the 3rd floor because I wanted a view. The hotel has both an indoor and outdoor pool. We used the indoor which was a decent size. There is plenty of room to sit and relax and of course enjoy the hot tub. I would definately recommend this hotel and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Higher floor, great ocean breeze.

We stayed at in the Tower Suite during our 9 day stay at Village by the Sea. It was a super pleasurable experience. Cleanliness and friendliness were displayed on a daily basis. Our time was spent sightseeing and taking it easy and having the added joy of no housekeeping was great. The suite was so clean and nicely furnished--and very large!! The resort is so close to beaches, restaurants and shops. Grounds were immaculate!! The whole experience was Top NOtch!!!

Village by the Sea is a great resort. Their condo's are very confortable and have balconies that are enjoyable. Their indoor pool with the waterfall is very nice and the water temperature is just right. They are close to the beach, shops, and resturants. When ever we come to Maine we stay at the Village by the Sea. My four year old granddaughter loves the condo, which is much better then staying in a one room motel room. I would recommend the Village by the Sea to anyone with a family or even a couple who wants to feel like they are at home.

We had a two bedroom two bath condo and enjoyed every second of it! The full kitchen saved us so much on dining out. The room was HUGE and clean, the staff was friendly and helpful

great location, great staff and great units! Have stayed here before and every stay although in different units is very consistent. Each unit has had lobster pots and enough dishes and cookware for a whole family to have a big seafood fest...because that's what you do when in Maine!

Our family has been to southern maine & coastal NH many, many times. We are frequent at the Village by the Sea for the cleanliness of their rooms & all the accomodations. The private outdoor deck is superb, whether it be night or day! We definitely tell all our friends and family about this place....its a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: The higher floors are the nicest, you get a great view of the ocean from your deck.
