We showed up on October 1 two days after tropical storm Ian. The grounds were pristine and the staff friendly and helpful. They made our anniversary special from check in to departure. Great assistance on recommendation for restaurants and reservations.
We’ve stayed in the gracious San Souci for the second year in a row — love the upstairs porch embraced by an ancient live oak dripping with Spanish moss where we watched the moonrise. There is such a sense of place with the beautifully preserved inn and cottages, the waterfront, and the maritime forest. Recommend renting bikes here and circumventing the island on the extensive bike trails, visiting the Jekyll Island Art Association gallery and shop, and watching the sunset over the river.
Beautiful resort. Great staff, worth a visit. Avoid the Wharf restaurant and rooms with two queen beds as the rooms are not designed for that configuration. It is a long walk to the ocean so if you want to spend a lot of time at the beach, go with a place along that side of the Island. If you like old-word charm with history, this is the place for you.
The resort is gorgeous. The location very peaceful and relaxing. The staff exceptional. Anything we needed assistance with was taken care of for us. Beautiful sunsets from the Wharf restaurant and Bar area. Tons of outside areas for reading a book to having a cocktail. We didn't do a horse & carriage ride but was always available.
Of course the Jekyll Island Club is an old, old venue. It possesses the charm and history of an era. It is lovely and the grounds & setting is spectacular. Our room’s A/C was situated near the ceiling and blew in our faces all night long. Every staff member we encountered was gracious and helpful. Our bellmen, both Charles and Gabe, were welcoming and helpful. The breakfast in The Grand Dining Room was a huge disappointment. Our food was just not up to standard and not nearly a good value. The waitress even began removing plates while some of us were still eating.
Pretty much eat on property, and the food is generally good - and pricey. Disappointed in my eggs Benedict, with the muffin not toasted and the eggs far too runny. There was a breakfast buffet, Which was so-so. Enjoyed The Wharf and the other restaurant.
Beautiful, historic property. Registered for a package weekend (50th anniversary trip for us) and were told we didn't register for what we thought we had. No attempt to rectify the situation on the part of management. To repeat, the property and buildings were lovely and if they had just gotten our registration sorted out, we would have a more favorable review.
Took my grandparents here to see and explore the nature and history of jekyll island and the notable history of the jekyll island club. Always amazing to see the water, history, and nature add up to an incredible locale. Add on top of that the top notch amenities of jekyll island club resort and you have yourself a recipe for a little slice of heaven.
It’s all about location! Nice spot in historic district with resort amenities. Common areas and grounds are very nice and staff was friendly. Big miss is the rooms which aren’t terrible, but they are dated and don’t fit the cost. But we knew that before going and decided to overlook that for the location. So, we would go back, but updating the rooms would make this 5 stars.
Beautiful buildings, rich with history. The staff was impersonal and not friendly, which detracted from the overall experience. We chose this resort for a friend's birthday weekend, and there were a few highlights. The carriage tour was fun, and the restaurant Eighty Ocean was excellent! But the staff were simply not welcoming or friendly. I can't recall a single staffer saying "Welcome to Jekyll Island." We will choose another resort next time.
