I surprised my husband for our anniversary with a long weekend trip at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel. Both of us were pleasantly surprised with the beauty and attention to detail that was displayed on the 200 plus acre club. We stayed in San Souci which was built in 1896, our room (4102) had the original hardwood floors, original window panes and original stained glass and had tall ceilings which were accented with gorgeous multi layered crown molding. The King bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was huge, the front porch with rocking chairs was perfect for enjoying a late afternoon cup of coffee. It was summer so we couldn't take advantage of the huge fireplace that was in the room. We also had a nice walk in closet, in room safe and large table with chairs. Each day we were left 2 complimentary bottles of water and we did have an in room coffee pot. Since we were celebrating our anniversary they sent us a complimentary bottle of Jekyll Island Champaigne and strawberries which was a nice jesture, we also had evening turn down service with Jekyll Island logo's imprinted on chocolates. Each morning we had the breakfast buffet in the main dining room which was a nice way to start the day. They had eggs, bacon , sausage, fruits, grits, pasteries, juices, etc. You could also get cooked to order eggs, toast and pancakes. I had purchased the dining plan with dinner and I am so glad that I paid the extra money. Our dinner was absolutely wonderful; the service was fabulous, the food was delicious and the desserts were to die for. The clubs private beach pavillion is a nice place to spend the day. They have towels for the guests, chairs and umbrellas that you can rent, restrooms and food. Driftwood beach is a must see, plan on riding bikes through the miles of moss covered oak tree paths. Overall, we had a wonderful time with wonderful service and no complaints. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! The hotel and the island is a definite must see and do vacation location.
