When deciding on our honeymoon, my new wife wanted to travel the Elvis pilgrimage and in her words "have 3 days of relaxation and luxury" at the end of a long 2 weeks driving. As you will know by the geography, there are closer places but Jekyll Island kept coming up as the perfect retreat at that time of the year [September] and we were not disappointed!
We were allocated a beautiful suite at the Hotel, in a stand alone building not on the "Historic Tour", close to the pool and amenities but away from the main building. The suite was immaculate, well decorated and well presented. The grounds are superbly kept and pleasant to walk around in the evenings as well as offering lots of shade in the day time heat.
All the staff were friendly and helpful and the pool area is relaxing apart from the occasional tour group going past on a road train. My wife is a Coeliac [Gluten intolerance - she has quite a severe reaction] and all the staff seemed knowledgeable of allergies and more than helpful in ensuring meals/snacks were suitable.
We really have no complaints about our stay at all, the food was excellent [we prepaid the all inclusive 3 meal tickets] the staff couldn't do enough to help and the setting was the perfect end to our honeymoon. The island itself reminds me of Amity in the Jaws films which suited me personally!
Make the effort and get up early to go on Turtle watch, the sunrise is beautiful and the beaches are exceptionally clean and welcoming.
