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. The room consists of a living... More

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.

We went to the Cloister in late September. The weather was a bit chilly (we were told it usually is not like that). I would have to say I loved going to the shooting school! The spa was very relaxing and they had a great atrium room. The grounds were my favorite part - just looking around at all the... More

The Paradores in Spain are hotels owned by the Spanish Government. They are near or even part of national heritage areas or areas of great beauty. The similarity doesn't end there. Our accommodation was in an apartment in a building that would not have been out of place in rural Spain. Heavy, dark and outdated Spanish interior design, red terra-cotta... More

We are truly sorry you did not enjoy the accommodations in the Cloister Ocean Villas. The Ocean Villas are a small, intimate enclave of 1, 2, and 3 bedroom suites. They follow the design of the original Cloister property which did have a Spanish influence. Pets are welcome in most areas of the resort, however, we do restrict their proximity... More

We went for a last minute Labor Day trip because flights were easy non stop in and out of Jacksonville, and considering other options for last minute get aways the rooms were quite reasonable. By the time we booked they were sold out of suites, so we started in a Riverview King room and they agreed at time of booking... More

We stayed for a week over Christmas in a 1 bedroom suite in the Ocean Villas. The staff was great. They could not have been better. The suite was beautiful. Everything was perfect. We cannot wait to return.
