This is our fourth visit to Sea Island, and each stay becomes more comfortable and enjoyable. You can see my prior reviews for more details and will focus here only on what's new or consistently good. What's New... There is a new adult pool at the Cloister near the River Bar and docks. While we did not use it, it... More

We were here on our honeymoon 60 years ago and returned on our 50th anniversary. We have changed, the Cloister has changed but one thing that has not changed is the excellent service we have received. The staff has been wonderful, friendly and especially accommodating. They have gone out of their way to acknowledge this milestone in our lives. The... More

It is not by chance that past presidents have stayed at this establishment dating back for many years. Quite simply, The Cloister at Sea Island is among the finest resorts in the United States. Sea Island is a private, gated community actually composed of several establishments in which to stay (including the equally wonderful Lodge at Sea Island), restaurants, water... More

My husband and I went to The Cloister to celebrate our anniversary, and were blown away by this place! The service was particularly outstanding, mainly because everyone was extremely friendly (even remembering our names at the front entrance). There's so much to do: we walked the beach in the mornings, rode bikes, laid by the pool, and my husband took... More

We visiting the Cloister for our summer family vacation this year. It is an impressive property with old world charm. The architecture of the buildings was truly beautiful. I really have no negative comments. The staff was friendly and helpful, always giving the kids special attention and making them feel welcome. Accommodations were spacious and clean. Grounds were beautiful. Great... More

Third or fourth time is a charm. This place never disappoints. The service, the accommodations, the staff, activities and restaurants are all top notch. Great gym, spa, tennis, squash, pools and beach. I did notice a nice improvement in the quality of food and service in the restaurants - the Executive Chef - Dave Carrier - is a master at... More

The Beach Club was highly recommended to us and so we traveled here with our 2 young kids today. We are shocked at the lack of customer service. Arrived early (3 pm) and so no one helped us unpack the car. We weren't allowed even to live park to change kids' diapers after a long drive. The first attendant took... More

This is a large holiday resort on the glowingly popular and lavish Golden aisles that offers a gym, spa, pools, beach, golf, multi sports and much more. It's a place for relaxing, fitness, training or leisure. With on site changing facilities with all kinds of toiletries and provisions and resort bar and restaurant, it truly is in a league of...

Thank you for your kind remarks about Sea Island. I am glad that you enjoyed your time here and find the resort to be “in a league of its own.” Guests of the resort have access to all amenities, dining and activities, without a membership fee. They simply pay for golf, their meals and other activities. A club membership is... More

My husband, 17 yr old AND friends stayed there over July 4th, this summer and rented a Beach Club Suite, 313 and 315. It was WONDERFUL! The rooms were very spacious. The beds were extremely comfortable. It was like I was staying in my own home. The location was perfect for us. We faced the ocean and looked over the... More
