My son graduated Savannah College of Art & Design on 6/3/06, so my wife and I wanted to reward ourselves by taking a vacation the preceding week. We both like the beach and enjoy playing golf. I had heard of Jekyll Island and after doing some research on the internet we decided to stay at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel for 4 nights. This was the ideal place for us. The hotel was wonderful. Our room was clean and spacious. The king bed was very comfortable and the shower was great. We ate at Cafe Solterra, the Courtyard at Crane Cottage and the Grand Dining Room. It was all very good. We also had cocktails at the Pool Bar, Lobby Bar and Vincent's Pub. We especially liked the Swimming Pool. The grounds were manicured, the ancient live oak trees were draped with moss, the flowers were in bloom and it was sunny each day. Combined with the restoration of the Historic District, this is the only place I would stay on the island. As far as the rest of the island is concerned, we enjoyed each of the 4 golf courses (no crowds-played in 3 to 3 1/2 hrs.) and biked around the whole island. At low tide the sand is so firm we even took the bikes on the beach. Driftwood beach was bizarre. Two restaurants that we enjoyed on the island were Blackbeard's and Latitude 31. All in all, I'd very much like to return. It is a great place to spend 3 or 4 nights at a time.
