Villas By the Sea Resort & Conference Center, Jekyll Island
Ceramic tile flooring throughout unit was sticky and uncomfortable to walk on. The room was clean but smelled strongly of chlorine. We had to open the doors to air it out. No vanity in the bathroom was disappointing with nowhere to store items.

Quiet, but needs updating
The condo we stayed in was clean, but desperately needed updating. The bed was very uncomfortable and the window had no blackout shades. The mattress and Box Springs desperately need to be replaced. I also don't appreciate not being able to change the temperature. It was preset to know lower than 70゚ and no higher than 75゚. If I'm paying to stay somewhere I want to be able to set the temperature wherever I wish. We had to have maintenance replace A broken shower head and it took them nearly 45 minutes to get there. Many of the fixtures were very old. It looked as though the condo was Built-in the early eighties and hadn't been updated since. The furniture was old and worn and faded. It was a long way to everything else on the island. Villas by the sea is on the North end of the island and everything else is on the South end which is about 4 miles away. The restaurant was very good but had a limited menu especially when you consider your right there by the ocean. There just wasn't much seafood on it which was what we wanted. The crab bisque was excellent and the shrimp and grits was very good. The bread was nothing special even though everyone seems to act like it was. My husband's shrimp platter had a grand total of about 12 shrimp on it which I think is pretty chintzy. I have to disagree about the macaroni and cheese--it was not good at all. It was quiet. I was thankful for that but I dreaded sleeping on that bed after the 1st night.

Big Disappointment
We booked a handicapped room. The room smelled like cat urine and curry. The bed was very uncomfortable and all I thought about all night, as the plastic sheet kept untucking from the corner of the mattress, was how many people peed in this bed. The decor was horrid. There was no regular coffee in the room, making the morning...Eghh. Not great guys. I almost booked a chain with free breakfast, but I truly thought this would be better. Too bad. The only good thing is the proximity to Driftwood Beach.

Pleasant resort by the ocean and Driftwood Beach
Pleasant resort, some buildings with 2 and 3 floors. No elevator so we had a first floor studio, with a small patio in back. Queen bed, free WiFi, flat TV, kitchenette with stove, fridge and microwave. Right by the ocean with outdoor pool.
