Jekyll is the place to go if you are looking for a pristine, out of the way sea island. Lots of off road paved bike paths. The location of the hotel is walking distance to Driftwood beach which is a must see location. The pool is very nice and the onsite restaurant is a great value.

My family and I stayed here for the Turtle Crawl Festival. The place we had was essentially a 2 bedroom 1.5 bath condo. The interior was basic, but it was clean and well furnished. The beds were rock hard, which was fine for me and my son, but not good for my pregnant wife. Our villa was on the pool...

This resort is a drive from the main commercial area of Jekyll Island, but is quiet and peaceful. The bike path sidewalks are quite nice for strolling. It's on the beach, has a nice restaurant on site. Pool complex is good, if a little small. Don't forget insect repellent. The rooms are fabulous - space galore, and full kitchens. It's...

So... where do I begin... we open the door to condo 235 and it smells musty... The place is just tired and dirty... everything needs painting and updating... The grounds are tired and look out when it rains as the steps are under water from the overflow from the roof... so much for your clothing and shoes....it was a shower...

Got a deal on Groupon. Check in process was very smooth, and directions with a map were a great help in locating our room. We were able to park close to our room, and parking was ample. Upon arrival to our room (286 in Hadley). We noticed the blinds in the bedroom were damaged, causing the room to be visible...

Easy to get to the spot, close to the convention center. Housekeeping friendly but will leave your Condo alone if you tell them, which was fine by me! Enjoyed my stay, restaurant was good, pool and coffee bar remodeled and in top shape.

Came for a conference. The villas are all decorated different and seem to be owned but rented by the hotel management. The ac didn't work when we checked in, called the front desk and it was fixed in no time. Plenty of space for 3 adults to spread out. Had an ocean view and boardwalk right out from the patio....
