“Great family vacation getaway!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We were in town for a wedding and stayed here for 2 nights. We would definitely like to come back in the future for an extended period. The rates are very reasonable, the rooms were magnificent and very well maintained. The staff was very pleasant and the scenery was beautiful. I would highly recommend Village By the Sea. So would my other family members who stayed there.

I stayed in one of the condo units here for a long weekend writing retreat, and it far exceeded my expectations. The rooms were palatial in size, the kitchen was well-equipped, the beds were comfy, everything was super clean, and I had stellar views of the marsh and Wells Beach. I wish I'd stayed longer. The staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful, and there were lots of places to eat and shop a stone's throw away. I'll certainly be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the water side and go for the second floor-much better views of the marsh and...

We stay here every time we are in Maine which is usually 3-4 times a year. The staff is wonderful, the rooms are clean and have everything you need. Its more like a 2 bedroom apartment than a hotel. Its close to Ogunquit and York Beach along with many other beautiful places to see. I would highly recommend Village By The Sea to everyone!

Room Tip: I personally like the first building, building A it has the best views

Enjoyed our stay at the Village by the Sea. We are familiar with the Wells/Ogunquit area, but this was our first time at this facility. Extremely friendly and professional staff and the 2-bedroom condo we had was much larger than we expected. Our view of the ocean was fantastic. Could have stayed for a week. Great pool and hot tub which our grandchildren enjoyed. Fabulous restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend Village by the Sea.

Room Tip: Our room was on the top floor of one of the buildings so our view was superb!

Stayed in the one bedroom villa. Great customer service, extremely clean, overall wonderful place. Went for a night away with my husband but I will definitely be back with the family!! Our goal was a night away of refreshing relaxation and it far exceeded expectations. Conveniently located only a few minutes from the ocean, from restaurants, mini golf, and the best doughnuts!

We came back for the second year. Beautifully decorated, lots of room. Full kitchen, so much fun.
Took a tour of Ogunquit, had lunch in a quaint Italian cafe.
Need I say how beautiful the ocean is. It was a fantastic weekend. We'll be back.

We have been traveling to the coast of southern Maine for many years, and last year decided to try Village by the Sea in Wells. We were pleasantly surprised at the wonderful suites, with plenty of space and great accomodations. The entire staff was very helpful and simply nice in all regards. We have just completed our second stay, and have another week scheduled in September. Cannot say enough about these wonderful people and the suites - pleasant views, well maintained, large rooms, price is very reasonable. Now that we have f0und this spot, it will be our only place to stay whenever we visit the southern Maine coast!
