Enjoyed a quick 5 night vacation with the family. Everything that was requested prior to check in was done. Shark fishing with Max was a great bonding time with my daughter. Everything about the resort is first class and the staff is incredible. We look forward to a return trip. It was great family time.

There is so much which is good about this hotel, but there are too many niggling annoyances to make it great. We had an ocean front room in the Beach Club, the room was terrific, large and clean, BUT there were no coffee facilities and the TV didn't work. A quick call to reception sorted it out. The pool attendants... More

My wife and I stayed here for our 26th anniversary and what a great decision. From the minute you pull up to the entrance until the minute you check out, the stay is peaceful, service is impeccable, atmosphere is elegant but not snobby, and basically a resort that offers everything or to do nothing. We stayed in a 2-bedroom suite... More

This was a short girl's trip, so we did not make use of the golf, tennis or shooting activities. However, we loved our room in the Ocean Villas, the spa, where we had wonderful massages and the restaurants. We also had room service and it was delivered promptly and perfectly. The service is top notch. It's expensive, but you get... More

My family spent the night at sea island on our way home from Florida this past January. Pretty spectacular spot where they have everything you can imagine. From tennis to horse back riding on the beach.the biking / running trails were beautiful . The old giant Spanish moss trees really made you feel like you were in a magical place.... More

I recently traveled to the Cloisters at Sea Island for a business trip. I had no idea what to expect prior to arriving. The drive from Jacksonville, FL Airport is about an hour. The Cloisters can arrange airport transportation for you for a fee. The Cloister Building is large and elaborate and reminds me of Spanish Colonial architecture that you... More

The Cloister at Sea Island has been a family favorite for years. I will admit that it is difficult transitioning in my mind between the old and the new property. We stayed at the Ocean Villas and of all of the property locations we've enjoyed, it was my least favorite. We had to ask for a coffee machine for the... More

Went with a group of about 100 people. Room was great. Group breakfast was good. Final Banquet meal was like an appetizer. The dinner we had outside a different night buffet style was really good. My wife had a terrible experience at the spa! It was truly terrible! General Manager offered my wife a comp facial for her issues. Should... More

This property is by far my favorite I've ever stayed at. Impeccable service and stunningly beautiful rooms is what this hotel has to offer, complete with a beach. Every time I ask myself how I liked my stay at a hotel, I always answer, "It wasn't the Cloister".

We have been lucky enough to stay at several 5 star resorts. After our recent four-day visit to The Cloister, we both agreed The Cloister is the best of the best! The Cloister's staff is amazing - everyone you encounter exhibits outstanding customer service skills. We stayed in the main building on the top floor - the room was exceptional,... More
