The Cloister at Sea Island
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Sea Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

We had a one bedroom balcony suite. It was so very lovely. Everything about the Cloisture is amazing. Every little detail is looked after and attended to. Even my shoes in my closet were straightened at night. We enjoyed every minute of our visit. Can't wait to return.

Stayed: April 2014, traveled as a couple

I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about this property due to the limited pictures on its website. I was not all that impressed with the service we received upon arrival. We arrived at 3pm, which is one hour before the 4pm check-in. The individual working at the front desk was not at all welcoming, and told us our room was ready and that someone would call us when it was. She did not offer us any suggestions on how to spend our time (there are many things to do at the resort) and no one offered us anything to drink. Most resorts of this caliber will offer you a welcome drink or at least a bottle of water.

Aside from the bad experience upon check-in, the remainder of the stay was outstanding! The room was impeccable and extremely spacious. The rooms are incredibly quiet and you literally feel like you are the only one staying at the hotel. The beds were divine. The housekeeping staff did an amazing job.

The Beach Club was excellent and had wonderful service. The staff were extremely helpful and seemed genuinely interested in making sure we enjoyed ourselves.

We were just there for a long weekend and never realized how much they had to offer. The prices at The Cloister are high. But like the man said, you get what you pay for. Our room was spacious, well appointed and immaculate. Their focus is on Guest satisfaction and the attention to your every need is unbelievable. The restaurants are extraordinary. I didn't find anything I really liked at The Georgian Room. The cuisine was too exotic for my palate. Travola and Colt & Alison were both outstanding! If you ever owe your wife a luxury weekend, this is the place to take her. It will be worth it...

We were at Sea Island for a work event -- but it felt like vacation. The rooms in the Cloisters are amazing, the service even better. The food served at all our events was excellent -- with a wide variety of styles, the seafood was out of this world. Every night had its own signature cocktails. I was able to use the spa and that too was wonderful.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. I view of the river would be great.

I brought my family to this resort based on the recommendation of a friend, who visits every year. We were very pleased with the Southern Charm and hospitality. It is truly a high-class experience. Plenty to do for all interests, but certainly not cheap. You will be treated like royalty. It seems that many families come year-after-year and may not be as welcoming to "outsiders", but that is no fault of the resort. A truly great experience.

Elite level service at almost every interaction. Stately traditional experience with just enough modern improvements added over the years. There is an activity available for every interest. The resort is expensive but if you are a discerning traveler you will be impressed. Superb!

The Cloister is the true definition of Southern class and hospitality. No matter where you were on property, you were greeted, asked if you needed assistance, and genuinely welcomed. The restaurants were amazing, the rooms were large enough to get lost in (Beach Suites), and the Spa was world-class. Jackie (esthetician) and Tracey (massage therapist) were absolutely amazing. The spa is a must. You cannot go wrong with this resort. Bicycle rental is also a great bit of fun for an afternoon to ride around the island!

Room Tip: Try to stay in the Beach Suite building rather than the Cloister main building. The Beach Suites ar...
