The Cloister is an incredible facility that reminds you of what Old World hotels must have been like. All of the buildings are beautiful with immaculately manicured gardens and grounds. The staff is genuinely friendly and very attentive. While I would rank both the property and customer service as five star quality, the food is more of a 3-4 star...

This is one of the grandest hotels I have ever stayed. The grounds have the most beautiful landscape of anywhere I have travelled. The staff, facilities and rooms are top notch. This place will rank in my top 3 hotel stays to date. There is so much history within the grounds of this resort and island. A must do if...

Outstanding location, accommodations, food, service, and staff! It really doesn't get any better here!. The staff always cheerful, made sure we didn't want for anything. If you have nothing to do while staying here, it's because you don't want to do anything. Highly recommended!

The Cloister is a truly peaceful place. Lots of space, lots of staff, few guest in relation. We went beginning of May and had the pools almost for ourselves. Two adult only pools in perfect locations, little complimentary smoothies being served during the day. As the island is only accessible for residents or hotel guests, we had the beach almost...

There are so many things that I love about Sea Island and the Cloister but staying in the main building is not one of them! We had a one bedroom suite on the upper floor of the main building overlooking the river. In previous years we have stayed in the Ocean Residences, cottages, etc. So, this was our first time...

We recently stayed at the Cloister for 3 nights and were very impressed with entire stay. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly bell hop named Marcello. He was absolutely wonderful and went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. The service during the entire stay was top notch. Our room was beautiful and very...

The features and amenities offered by the Cloister were out of this work. Every room was clean and had a tremendous view. If i could give 6...

Beautiful location, well landscaped friendly people, but very pricey for what you get. Rooms are spacious, but dated, not everything works (they fixed it) Room was supposed to be ocean view, but looked mostly at a tile roof. (They did a small spruce adjustment) Just expect it to be perfect and it was not for sure. Hint, make sure of...
