We stayed a week in a Cloister Cottage. The accommodations were wonderful. The kitchen was well supplied and the small pool appreciated on hot days. The golf courses are all in excellent shape and weren't crowded. The food in the restaurants was excellent. The staff are numerous and very helpful. The beach is beautiful as only the Carolina and Georgia... More

Relaxing weekend with family in a luxurious setting. The 4 bedroom home on the Cloisters property was beautifully furnished and had its own swimming pool. The kitchen was fully equipped with every imaginable appliance. The bedrooms were large and ensuite.

I can't say enough good things about my extended stay on Sea Island. I rented one of Sea Island's beautiful cottages for two months. The Reservations and Cottage Rental staff were really great to work with; knowledgeable and very gracious all along the way It was a perfect place to celebrate my retirement and entertain family and friends.

Five star accomodation, congenial and accomodating staff, great food , shopping, spa , shooting, horsebackriding. The list is endless. Very pricey but a fabulous treat yourself experience. The hotel is growing so expect some construction noise but the rooms keep out most of the sounds.

The Cloisters: Sea Island, Georgia We decided on the spur of the moment to head for The Cloisters in Sea Island for a long birthday weekend this May. I had last visited this old fashioned resort in 2007, also for a birthday celebration and had a marvelous time with my family. We had wonderful service and delicious food during our... More

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights over spring break. We had a non-view suite in the Beach Club area. It was not cheap - actually it was the most expensive hotel room we've ever booked - so we were expecting a lot. We were not disappointed. The room was fantastic! It was huge. We had a really...

This was my first time here, and I can say it was nothing short of spectacular! Anywhere that has hosted the G8 summit meeting must be nice, right? Five-star accommodations, five star service, you feel like a celebrity the entire time! I cannot recommend it enough. I have also stayed at the Inn which is somewhat lesson about a mile... More

Everything from the moment we arrived until we left was first class. Excellent resort for both individuals and the family. We stayed in the Cloister but the Lodge and Beach Club would also be excellent.

I cannot find the proper words to praise The Cloister at Sea Island. I have never felt so relaxed and at peace in my life. Beautiful, serene, incredible. From the suite to the dining, from the perfectly maintained grounds to the lobby, there wasn't a single moment of care in the world while we were there. The employees are excellent,... More

We spent a week in April here and loved every minute! This resort is outstanding in many aspects! The accomodations are exquisite, beautifully decorated with lovely views! The staff and service are the best I have experienced! We stayed in a one bedroom ocean villa suite. The suite has 2 bathrooms, sofa bed, full kitchen, laundry, dining area, enormous master... More
