“Very swank”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Everything at the resort was top notch... Except the bathrooms. I booked a room with a glassed in sunporch overlooking the river and everything was very nice. The bathroom was a different story. It seemed like it was made for someone about 2 feet shorter than we were. The tub was miniscule and the counter came up mid thigh. It was a very crampled space and probably had not been updated in some time.
The history and grounds of the resort are wonderful. Just be sure to pack OFF! for the gnats, which could possible become Georgia's state bird.
We had a couple's massage that was quite overpriced for what we got. But it was at a resort so that was to be expected. The Sandwich Shop had very good food. Again, quite expensive.
We also ate at the restaurant on the river and the food there was excellent. Not a lot to do in the area and we drove over to St. Simon's for a little bite and sightseeing.
The shops on the resort are quite lame (I dont know how else to describe them) and again, unless the outdoor pool is open, it is not a great place for kids as you have to go to the other side of the island to get to the beach.
Very nice for a romantic weekend.

Hey it is an old old hotel but considering the age and affects of the salt water it's in pretty good shape. I was here for three nights and stayed in a huge room with a big porch with a view of the river. It was in sans souci if you can't do stairs do realize there is not an elevator. All service and food was first class. Is it perfect no but pretty darn good I saw one review that had 12 negative points don't read it I would guess they don't like anything or anyplace. Enjoy

This property is beautiful! We stayed two nights as part of a Southern Coastal tour. All of our companions had unique rooms. It all depends on the the building you're in. We had breakfast each AM in the grand dining room- it was wonderful! There was lots to see and do. I would definitely come back again.

We visit the Club Hotel's Bar and enjoy the Happy hour meet and greet on Thursdays. The staff is friendly and service is excellent. Half price drinks and finger food are the best.
We like the atmosphere of the old hotel, the grounds are immaculate, interior of the club is very nice. We have enjoyed the Saturday breakfast buffet in the dining room. The best deal on the island for a very nice breakfast.
They have an excellent Sunday Brunch that is full service and Mimosas!
Sorry we have never stayed in the hotel rooms so we can't comment on the over night stays. We are residents on the Island.

Room Tip: Can't comment on staying here as we visit for Breakfast , Lunch and happy hour.

The setting is a beautiful historic hotel and the grounds are lovely with walking and bike riding trails throughout but the beds and the rooms could be updated. The bed was very uncomfortable and unfortunately many of the staff were not very friendly.

One can feel like the pampered millionaires that first had the Jekyll Island Club created for their own vacations. The hotel has the feel of the Del Coronado Hotel in San Diego as it was built during the same period. The rooms in the hotel are individually decorated and with fully up-to-date amenities. The Grand Dining Room has to be experienced for at least one dinner. Roam the grounds to get a sense of the beauty of this lovely island setting and the unique shops in old cottages. I would stay there again in a heart beat.
