TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 2 days ago

My husband had to go to the Cloister for a business conference. We stayed a week to give us some romantic time alone. He surprised me for my birthday with this trip but when we pulled into the INN not the Cloister I said I thought we were staying at the Cloister? Turns out they were all booked up & he had to book at the Inn. When we went to check in I asked the lovely lady at the front desk if there was any way possible to get a room at the Cloister and she called over to Nicole at the front desk in the Cloister. Nicole made my birthday wish/dream come true that I was practically in tears. She went above & beyond to make it happen. She told us that we would be able to stay at the Cloister but we will have to move 4 times during our stay. We were perfectly fine with that because we came all the way to Sea Island & how could you come here & not stay at the Cloister? Staying at the Cloister this time may not have happened if not for my husbands business conference. I love Nicole & your staff. We were made to feel like family & felt so welcomed. The restaurants/room service is delicious and when you arrive late at night having 24hr room service comes in handy! The first 2 nights we stayed in an Ocean Residence suite. Absolutely beautiful, quiet & huge! On our second night Nicole & the front desk staff had a bottle of champagne, box of chocolate truffles & birthday card set up in our room! What a wonderful birthday surprise and We ended up moving just once more on our 3rd day to a suite/room at the Beach Club. Again beautiful, quiet & huge with a fabulous view of the ocean. Nicole called me on our forth day to tell me some great news. We only have to move once more instead of the 4 times as previously told and we could go back to the Ocean Residence suite we originally had for the rest of our stay. We were so please & happy about this. I cannot rave about Nicole & your staff enough!! The restaurants are all delicious as was the catering for the conference events. I so enjoyed the excursions at your hotel that my husband set up through his conference. Hobie cat ride to the sandbar searching for shells, horseback riding on the beach (I did this twice!) & a dolphin cruise. I can go on & on but I'm running out of space. It is such a big resort that on our first night I decided I wanted to take a walk around & go back to the main building to thank Nicole once again however I got a little lost due to it being somewhat dark and really no signs telling you which way to go so thankfully an engineer drove by with his golf cart and asked if I needed assistance. He took me to the main building & waited for me even though I insisted I walk back & he took me all the way back to the residences. I wish I'd remember his name. he deserves a huge thank you! This is the best resort I have ever stay at. Thank you EVERYONE at the Cloister for making our stay fabulous!! Hoping to come again :)

This hotel is beautiful. The staff is welling to help in anything you may need. The rooms are clean and spaces. We had a room with a view of their river and it was wonderful to wake up to a beautiful view. We will be returning with our grown up kids.

My room overlooked the river and it was so peaceful and relaxing. I even spotted 2 porpoises swimming by in the river one morning. The food is amazing and the staff is the best that I've ever encountered at a resort. The chef's from each restaurant are top notch. There's 2 adults pools, a kids pool, a fun fountain for kids, waterslide and a beautiful beach area. Bikes are available upon request. The gym was better than any membership gym.

Outstanding in every respect. Architecture, cleanliness, service, activities, the spa. There is a clear emphasis on friendly, professional service, from the gentleman who opens the front door for you to the maid staff. The grounds are meticulously kept. The rooms are spotless, large, and beautifully furnished. I was with a conference, but I would like to return with my family. The resort is appropriate for couples and also families. This place is lavish and special.

I just returned from a three night stay at The Cloister, and it was by far the best experience I’ve had at a hotel. The grounds are exquisite and smell divine. The hotel staff is highly accommodating and goes above and beyond to ensure all of your needs are taken care of. We indulged in a spa day; I never understood why people spent a whole day lounging in a spa until my experience at the Cloister spa! I’m now trying to track down the soap and hand lotion used at the spa, because again—the smell! The touch of Bali massage service was the best massage I’ve ever experienced. We dined at several restaurants, but notably Southern Tides for a delicious beach side lunch, Colt & Allison, and Georgian Room. The latter was an eleven course, four hour dining experience and knows no rivals. Again-amazing. The beachside flag service was such a wonderful luxury. Car service to the airport to close out our stay again was just filled with attention to detail and service. We will most definitely return!
