My favorite resort in the US and I travel a lot! Everything is top notch about the resort - the accommodations, Beach Club and dining are all fabulous! The staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcome.

From the minute we arrived to our departure we were treated like royalty! The garden grounds were impeccable and so beautiful, it really was a foretaste of heaven. The beds were so comfortable, the room in the garden wing was spacious, equipped with a fridge and gorgeous barhroom with all the meme irises one would need. The spa was unbelievable.... More

I have wanted to try The Cloisters for a number of years and know many people who have visited and had good experiences. This is a very good resort but it's not a 5 star resort. The rooms are top notch as is the golf. However the execution on a number of small things add up to it being very... More

It was good to read that you were so pleased with your accommodations and your golf experience. It is of course disappointing to see that some aspects of your visit were not as pleasing to you. Those are helpful to know and I have shared your comments with our heads of Transportation and Food & Beverage. I appreciate your taking... More

The service is first rate with every possible need considered and taken care of. Staff are very friendly and helpful. With this said a 20% gratuity is charged for almost every activity, even for the breakfast buffet which you serve yourself. My wife and I stayed at the Ocean Residences which offered extreme privacy. With it's own infinity pool and... More

My husband and I just got back today from a four day weekend at Sea Island. We stayed at the Lodge, which is the sister property of the Cloister. However, my husband had a meeting at the Cloister. They had a shuttle that takes you from each of their properties that runs every 30 minutes from each hotel. Just let... More

Thank you very much for staying with us and for posting your comments. You are right that Sea Island is very popular with families, especially during the final days of summer. I hope you will consider visiting with us again. More

I went here in July for a family vacation and we had a great time. The only thing I would change is the time of year we went.. It was about 110 degrees after the heat index. Despite being very hot there were a lot of activities to do. The guys went golfing a few times, there's a gun range... More

I have no words to describe this amazing place! Stay there for 4 days (3 nights) and the all time I felt like I was dreaming. The rooms are very pretty, clean and luxurious. The staff is absolutely beyond nice and polite. All the amenities (gym, stores, restaurants, etc) are extremely pretty and special. They even have a church and... More

I waited to review this property, hoping that The Cloister would address all the problems we had and try and make it up to us in some way. They sent me a survey and I couldn't have been more critical of a number of things that happened during our stay. I never heard from them. I guess they think that... More

Spent a few days here with friends. The property is loaded with old world charm. The service was spot on. The restaurants catered to every kind of fare desired. The Sporting Clays range was so much fun- with a knowledgeable and well trained staff to suit beginners as well as expert shooters.
