4/5 Good

The most disappointing aspect of this center was there was no direct beach access. The best feature was the Driftwood Bistro. The food and service was excellent. We had some issues with our TV and remote and stopped by the front desk to let them know about it. They had a technician at our door before we were able to walk back to our room. He fixed it. As an offset to the lack of beach access, Driftwood Beach is located about 2 minutes walking from the center. I makes a wonderful playground for kids.

View and closeness to driftwood beach was great. No take out from restaurant on Friday or Saturday. Then closed on Sunday. Otherwise I would stay again.

2/5

For the price the overall experience was overpriced. No hot tub and the restaurant no providing room service were huge let downs. We even tried to place a to-go order and were told “we’re to busy” was unacceptable. Room was nice but also brace access we very limited. First and last visit in same trip.

We had a perfect weekend in Jekyll. The property is ocean front and we fell asleep each night listening to the surf. The villa was very spacious and clean. A very comfortable stay.
