A five star hotel needs to welcome their guests properly.Sorry Cloisters, but your front gate security as well as front desk reception ruined our trip. They were simply unacceptable, rude and unhelpful.I will never be back when there are so many equally nice resorts with well mannered staff.

We recently stayed at the Cloister to visit with family. The hotel is gorgeous and each main public room in the lobby level floor had a beautifully decorated Christmas Tree. The restaurants are excellent and the service is also excellent. The staff at the hotel are professional and courteous. It is refreshing to have such excellent service. The rooms are... More

We decided to try The Cloister for one night on our drive back to Florida from North Carolina after Thanksgiving. We had heard some wonderful things about the Cloisters, and everything we heard was absolutely correct. The thing that stood out the most was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff in every area. We have stayed at some fabulous... More

Our 3 night stay was on weekdays during the 1st week of December, when rates dropped significantly, and we took advantage of the buy two nights, get one for $63 promotion. The weather was in the high 60s/low 70s; great for walking on the beach and other outdoor excursions. It was a bit foggy and windy a couple of mornings,... More

We celebrated our 10 th wedding anniversary at the Cloisters. Our stay was simply amazing. From the service to the amenities, every aspect exceeded our expectations. The grounds are simply beautiful. The spa is incredible too. We had fairly decent expectations after reading all the reviews about this property and we were not disappointed in the least. I truly cannot... More

My Mom, sister and I spent a completely luxurious few days at the Cloisters where the modern and spacious resort seemed frequented by Blue Blood ghosts harkening back to a time that everyone doesn't seem to want to forget. Not the cheapest place but well worth the value. The staff was incredibly considerate and super eager to please without being... More

I used to come down here as a kid & had many fine memories. I came back while I was in college & stayed with my girlfriend & a few other friends during the week of the Georgia/Florida game. Yet another great experience. I finally came back as an adult & brought my kids & I feel like the cycle... More

Just came back from our 14-person extended family gathering at the Beach Club section of The Cloisters. The suites are enormous and beautifully appointed. The housekeeping staff is both kind and fastidious. The Moulton Brown toiletries are yummy. Every person working at this property has a combination of Southern hospitality and high level customer service. The dining options are all... More

The staff was very friendly and attentive. The River Bar is a must for a casual dinner or a simple cocktail after a day on the course. The back terrace and lobby provide a great setting for casual time. The marsh views are impressive and the ocean is just a 3 minute walk to the Beach Club. The history of... More

We had a beautiful stay in the Ocean Villas. The condo was spectacular and very spacious and well decorated with a beautiful view of the ocean. I can't think of a negative thing to say. Although we didn't have any children with us - they had tons of activities for little ones and it looked like so much fun for... More
