This was our 2nd year returning to sea island. Our family stayed here the week after Easter and enjoyed it just as much as the year before. We rented one of the resort's cottages. There were 8 of us and the 3 kids enjoyed the water slide, the beach and all the kids activities (especially the kids night out). The... More

The Cloisters is at the pinnacle of the tourism industry. Not doubt that is high end with rates reflecting its excellence. The extensive grounds are manicured with care. It offers a wide range of activities for all ages - pool, long sandy beach, sailing, archery, paddle boarding, horseback riding, bicycling, and the list goes on. The rooms and bathrooms are... More

We recently returned from a week long family visit to Sea Island. Due to the size of our group (8 adults and 4 children) we opted to rent a private cottage from the Sea Island Cottage Rental Group. We elected to go with them because of the reputation of Sea Island and the opportunity to have access to The Cloisters,... More

I just returned from Sea Island Georgia. This is my second visit. The grounds are beautiful, the food is very good, and the service for almost everything is impeccable. The only issue I had involved having to get back from the golf club and the concierge, Michael, told me I needed to wait for the van which comes every 30... More

Simply fabulous! Beautiful accommodations. Amazing property. Delicious food. Incredible service. My wife and me had no idea what to expect, in hindsight, I am happy about this. It exceeded my expectations to the highest degree.

Not only is this place beautiful, but the staff is gentle and kind and impeccably well-manored. There are activities for everyone's taste. The food is excellent. Questions are answered with "yes mam" or yes sir. The room was huge with 2 bathrooms perfectly appointed. I can't wait to return.

Staying at the Cloister has exceeded all our (admittedly already high) expectations. From the moment we drove up through the oak tree lined Sea Island Drive and until the moment we left a week later, our stay has been nothing short of perfection. The resort is located on its own island off St.Simons. It has strict security controlling access (they... More

I was in Sea Island for 4 days and completely fell in love with the area and this hotel. There is a tropical feel sitting outside around the pool and the wait staff are always a quick glance away from rushing to help with anything you might need. Rooms were nothing short of cavernous and very nicely decorated. The grounds... More

Our family of four spent an extended 4th of July weekend at the Cloister. As with every other stay, the service was 5 star. The attitude of ALL the associates is remarkable. Always friendly, smiling and helpful. We became so close to Belinda in housekeeping that she gave us hugs when we left. She went out of her way to... More
