The Cloister is a five star resort. The staff treat you as such. The rooms are spacious and take you back in time while having a modern touch. They have a very nice gym attached. You can easily walk to the beach and have clothing stores on site.

We visited Sea Island this winter with our extended family including our two small children. The staff is wonderful and the facility is beautiful. However we struggled to find things to do with our children during our stay. The staff were as helpful as they could be and I really appreciated their suggestions. The other guests staying at the resort...

This resort is the best of everything. The location is the most relaxing spot I have visited in 20 years. It is tropical, beautifully landscaped and maintained, and soothing to the soul. The hotel has the old world charm of the early 1900s. A large lobby with a massive fireplace and deep comfortable furniture. Our room in the garden wing...

The Cloister is a wonderful property. The Grounds are lovely and perfectly manicured. The rooms commodious and well appointed. The service excellent. The food great. And the location sublime. The pools and health club are great too. What's not to like? Weather wise, January isn't the best but still...

My wife and I escaped to The Cloister to enjoy a quiet Christmas Holiday and we were not disappointed. From the time we were greeted at the Security Gate by a smiling and professional attendant, to the day we departed, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay (Main Building). Our first evening we participated in a special wine dinner located in the...

From the minute we arrived at the gate, we knew this property was special. It is stunningly beautiful and, being dressed for Christmas, was just magnificent. We enjoyed 2 of the lounges at the Cloister and a sunset with bagpipe accompaniment from the lounge at the sister property, The Lodge. Our accommodation was so much more than we expected. The...

It's expensive enough you expect perfection. It was anything but. We had a series of problems- room service not right, meals with endless waits and golf carts for transport that never showed up. Lots of apologies-- it was Thanksgiving, they were busy but at the end of the day it just didn't measure up. I debated about here or the...

Please accept my apology for the disappointments you encountered during your Thanksgiving stay with us. While it is true we were very busy, it is also true that we fell short of providing the gracious service which we strive to give each guest. I hope you will consider staying with us again, giving us the chance to provide an experience...
