Jekyll Island Club Resort

Reviewed July 8, 2013

My family and I have returned to this hotel every summer for more than 5 years. The charm, the location, the service--all of it plays a role in our annual return. The staff is extremely attentive, and the food is wonderful (expensive, but it's worth checking out the Crane Cottage at least once). Rent a bike and spend a day pedaling around the island, go to the beach, hit a few balls at the golf course--you will find something you love. It's true that the old building has its quirks: there are weird creaks and the rooms come in all sizes with no apparent standard, and if you go in the summer the air conditioning with battle with the heat and humidity to keep you cool, but there's always the pool for that. Take the afternoon tour of the building to learn about the hotel's history, and if you're in the area for a few days, try to take a trip to Cumberland Island to see even more examples of the era when the Rockefellers and Carnegies (among others) used the coast of Georgia as a playground.

We spent a wonderful weekend at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel. Fantastic architecture, history, and furnishings. Friendly, professional staff. Shopping, location, grounds - it couldn't have been better! We will definitely be back.

Stayed at the hotel for a wedding in May, 3 days Friday through Sunday. The grounds large, well manicured, and beautiful. The hotel was comprised of many very old turn off the century buildings set apart and converted into hotel rooms and public spaces. It looked by far to be the nicest hotel on the island and had many amenities. For the price rooms left a lot to be desired, ours had paint and paste coming off the wall, fixtures were aged and very plain, our air conditioner didn't shut off for three days and room never reached 73 degrees. I recommend renting a bike and pedaling around the island for a couple of hours it was gorgeous. In all this was a beautiful hotel with a lot of history but for the money I didn't think the value was there for what you get.

I LOVE the Jekyll Island Club! My husband and I visit every year with our best friends to "just get away". The Sunday breakfast (get reservations) is a must as is a stroll through the Millionaires Village. The Easter Egg Hunt is perfect for children...and fun for the adults, as well! I LOVE THIS PLACE!

Room Tip: *ask for a room facing the river *this is NOT a beachfront property....but they do have a shuttle...

All that you need is a bathing suites, running shoes, and one or two dresses. For the guys that love golf bring your clubs the courses are some of the finest to play. Side pool bar make crazy good chicken salad, and the drinks are made with a smile. The grounds are amazing and the history makes it more memorable. Take a long weekend or a week either way you will relax and enjoy.

I thought the hotel was very nice. The room we had was rather small and we didn't have a very good view. However, the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely like to stay again sometime.

I stayed here with my husband to do a media review of the property. I expected "old" but what I got was "charming". I expected "small" but what I got was "quaint". This is a luxury family hotel full of history, where an empty rocking chair on the verandah awaits my return. What a great resort!
