staff ignored us and gave preferential treatment to Americans. Told room would be ready in 15 minutes - took over 4 hours - ordered coffee via room service - took 24 hours and then it was black not white as I had ordered, Had to take cases to car ourselves as bell boy did not show..... VERY expensive and the... More

I booked a reservation to celebrate wedding anniversary 6 months out, a day before my arrival I received a call that one of the resort owners is occupying my suite, therefore the suit is no longer available to me, I contacted my attorney who reached out to the sales manager that told me this, (Christen McCuiston) she then changed her...

Attended a wedding at the Cloisters a few weeks ago and it was very well done. The outdoor venue was quiet and tastefully decorated with chandeliers hanging from the trees. The staff and wedding planner did a great job of insuring that all guests were seated at the appropriate time, that the guests moved on to the reception and that... More

I think someone would have to work really hard to find anything negative about this hotel. From the moment we arrived and were taken to our room by the bell captain it was a special weekend for our family. The room was large and QUIET, the staff was very attentive and courteous, the grounds were immaculate. A destination, not a... More

I cannot say enough about this hotel. My husband and I have stayed at several nice hotels but none as exquisite as the Cloister. Our suite was the size of a small apartment. The bed and pillows were so comfortable! There is a nespresso machine in the room. The staff are so friendly. If you or someone you know is... More

This was our fourth stay at this resort and we love it more every time. We did something different this time and stayed in an ocean view room instead of the main hotel. The room and the view were outstanding but I have to warn you that there is construction going on everywhere at the same time. It was quite... More

This was our second visit to Sea Islnd in several years. We played golf at the Plantation Course, which is beautiful and well maintained. We prefer it to the Ocean course which is tougher and on marshes. The service in the golf shop is very uneven. They greet members with a big smile and golfers who are guests with disdain.... More

Absolutely wonderful! Can't say enough about how enjoyable our stays have been since discovering this place. We keep going back year after year because the resort has so much to offer for all of us. We enjoy the rooms, the atmosphere, the activities and the food. Beach is easily accessible and so are the pools. Mom and Dad are able... More

The Cloister is a beautiful Hotel. The wedding I attended here was probably the best wedding I will ever attend! Everything was beautiful..it was a Black Tie event and the Bride had 4 chandliers hanging from the trees for this Garden event. The reception took my breath away. I could have been anywhere, France, Italy, LA, The Hamptons. The food... More

Recently stayed at The Cloister. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. Very nice. Although our room was in the main building facing the front entry. Would have been better to face the backside. Room service was fantastic, but very pricey. We did eat dinner one evening in their high end restaurant. I would skip that option. Very high prices... More
