Indescribable beauty, first-rate service and incredible amenities at this gorgeous, albeit pricey resort about 1 ½ hours from Savannah. Not only was there a tremendous amount to do there, but we were surprised to discover a lot of history in the area. We can't wait to go back!

This was my third visit to Sea Island and the first time I traveled a day early to play golf. As usual, the staff and service were outstanding. And the place is beautiful. The Plantation golf course was excellent. Beautiful golf setting and a great course in terrific shape. I intend to stay longer next time.

The place is just outstanding as the room and the service. For example, they did not had the type of yogurt on the menu my wife wanted the first morning. They made sure to have it the next morning. This really going out of it way to please. Recommend highly.

For those desiring the ultimate experience and level of service, this is it. We were there for the first 3 days of the PGA Tour McGladrey Classic, arrived by car service from Jacksonville, FL airport, approximately 1:10 drive and noticed immediately the service was extraordinary. The front desk, concierge, room service, maid service, restaurant and bar staff were all equally... More

We stayed there over a weekend for a wedding. Our room was incredible with a beautiful view of the waterway. The grounds are impeccable and the service is first class. We were there without kids and it was nice to spend time at the adults only pool. It looks like there are plenty of things to do with the kids,... More

I have done group golf trips for 17 years and have stayed at many nice resorts. I found that Sea Island misrepresented many of the things told to us and they treated us as 2nd class citizens after their members. After telling us to skip a hole on their overpriced course, we were told they would buy us a drink,... More

We need to go back! We had a wonderful visit to the cloister, and regret that we didn't have more time. The hotel is beautiful. Our suite was quite large and the decor was charming. The balcony was spacious and had seating which was great for taking in the water views. The hotel offers concierge services via text message- which... More

Our niece was married on Saturday, October 11, 2014 at The Cloister. Her wedding was one of 6 weddings that weekend. The wedding was held outside in the courtyard followed by a reception in the ballroom. The Cloister is on Sea Island and we stayed in a River View Suite in the main building.

One of my very favorite resorts. We came every year for my then spouses medical conference. The cuisine, rooms, staff and resort are five-star! Walking among the tree lined streets and taking in the lovely homes is just a divine way to spend a morning. Can you find the glass house? Happy Trails! TheSocialSingle.com.
