Just returned from a phenomenal stay in the Beach Club Suites as the Cloister. This place does everything right. In addition to the beautiful setting, the property and all of the facilities are spotless. The staff could not be friendlier or more accommodating. What a great value for the cost! We traveled with our children, ages 14, 12 and 8, and another family with children of similar ages. Both children and adults were equally impressed. We have stayed at many upscale resorts including, most recently, the Ritz Reserve at Dorado Beach and the Elbow Beach Resort (run by the Mandarin chain). The General Managers of those resorts, which charge three and four times as much, could learn many things from Mr. Riess and his wonderful staff at this well-managed, spectacular spot. Things not to miss on the resort: Bingo, the spa, a beach horseback ride, shooting (we did a private lessons), bagpipes at s'mores at the gorgeous Lodge and jeep train shelling. Things that were not quite up to the "extraordinary" standards set by the other activities: archery, "private yacht" and most of the resort restaurants (with the exception of the Georgian Room, which we skipped). Things to do off resort: visit lovely St. Simons. Take a dolphin boat tour, eat almost anywhere! We had excellent meals at Haylards, Bernie's Red Barn, Blackwater Grill, and Southern Soul (do NOT miss this place). We also arranged to have a goft cart delivered to the resort for our use. High Tide Cart Rentals in St. Simons. Top to bottom, a must-visit family resort. We will return and recommend highly to all.
