My husband and I spent our Honeymoon at the Cloister in 1992, so we thought it would be fun to take our 16 and 20 year old children back for a New Year's week visit. Although we have only wonderful memories from our first visit, it did not prepare us for the new hotel, spa and beach club! It is... More

The cloisters is a beautiful property steeped in southern hospitality. The ocean the pool and the restaurants all were excellent. The most fun we had was the BINGO night. It was fun to dress up and go play Bingo in the ballroom. The golf courses are well known and we enjoyed playing on them. Their are bunch of restaurants outside... More

We just returned from another fantastic trip to the Cloister at Sea Island. We are losing count, but this was our 6th or 7th time staying here. We are certain to return again and again. Everything is top notch. The service was truly outstanding - the staff is always so warm and welcoming. Everyone we encounter is willing to go... More

A few friends stayed a week at this fantastic 5 star resort. All staff were extremely professional and helpful in every area we encountered them. The rooms were very spacious and well maintained. The food was outstanding as was the spa and fitness centre. A great relaxing stay was had by all.

This hotel is so renowned and I had very high expectations as someone who has been to a lot of five star hotels around the world. I think there are a few aspects where it falls short as a five star. I did not like that there was no quick cafe to get things like one would find at a... More

After only one visit, this hotel has moved at the top of our all-time best resorts visited. We love historic resorts and have visited most of them--The Breakers, The Greenbrier, The Homestead, etc. The Cloisters takes the cake. The main hotel itself is not huge, but the spanish architecture is uniquely beautiful. The grounds are what make this place special--spanish... More

Our third time to stay at the Cloisters. It is just wonderful, from the attentive staff to the beautifully appointed rooms. This is a real luxury resort. Bathrobes, huge bathrooms with spa and walk in shower, separate his and hers closets, safe, turndown service, large oversized rooms and beds, beautiful views... it just goes on and on. I just love...

My grandparents went to Sea Island on their honeymoon. I grew up hearing about a magical place where every time they walked into the dining room for dinner, the orchestra would immediately play their wedding song, "As Time Goes By." You know how when you hear about something that is so built up in your mind, that there is no... More

There are a lot of physically beautiful resorts, and this is definitely one of them. But what is unique is the staff - warm, hospitable, problem solving, everyone is watching out for a guest in need - whether they look a little lost or need a cup to be disposed of or are waiting a little long for a wait...
