We spent almost two weeks at the Cloister over the 4th with our family. We stay in the Cloister because it is a little quieter but still a 3 minute walk to the Beach and Beach Club. When our children were younger we used to stay at the Beach Club, but it is busy and a bit noisy if you do not have children.
I have read several reviews that have stated that the pool/beach attendants were not that attentive to their needs. I did also experience that as well on just a couple of days. I really think that stems from the attendants being teenagers and there did not seem to be "an adult" presnet to make sure things were getting done.
But, having said that, I also would get my own towels and chair covers and head to the chairs that they had already laid out that morning. This is not a big deal, but I do understand the frustration.
The property is amazing and we always cannot wait to get back when we depart. I really do not belive that there is a place like in the US. A true Southern resort with true Southern hospitality. The rooms at the Cloister are amazing, the beach is great, the rivers and marsh views are amazing. We took the wine cruise which is awesome.
Also, go to the Lodge and get a drink and wait for the bagpiper to come by before dinner.
Overall another great family vacation at Sea Island, it seems to get better every year.
