This was our fourth stay at this resort and we love it more every time. We did something different this time and stayed in an ocean view room instead of the main hotel. The room and the view were outstanding but I have to warn you that there is construction going on everywhere at the same time. It was quite...

This was our second visit to Sea Islnd in several years. We played golf at the Plantation Course, which is beautiful and well maintained. We prefer it to the Ocean course which is tougher and on marshes. The service in the golf shop is very uneven. They greet members with a big smile and golfers who are guests with disdain....

Absolutely wonderful! Can't say enough about how enjoyable our stays have been since discovering this place. We keep going back year after year because the resort has so much to offer for all of us. We enjoy the rooms, the atmosphere, the activities and the food. Beach is easily accessible and so are the pools. Mom and Dad are able...

Everything was beautiful..it was a Black Tie event and the Bride had 4 chandliers hanging from the trees for this Garden event. The reception took my breath away. I could have been anywhere, France, Italy, LA, The Hamptons. The food...

Recently stayed at The Cloister. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. Very nice. Although our room was in the main building facing the front entry. Would have been better to face the backside. Room service was fantastic, but very pricey. We did eat dinner one evening in their high end restaurant. I would skip that option. Very high prices...

The rooms are very large and spacious with every thing you could want. The staff is there to serve you and is very friendly. This hotel is elegant but not stuffy. You are fine traveling with small children or for a honeymoon. Beach club has nice staff, chairs and towels with 3 beautiful pools besides the ocean. Food was over...

There are no words to explain The Cloister. It is a place of luxury. You are not only treated with the utmost respect and care to all your needs, you feel that way by staying the well appointed rooms with wonderful bedding and lots of space.

Amazing place to visit! Service is impeccable and the food is off the charts, from breakfast to dinner. Cigar room so relaxing. The dock at sunset is a must and the spa is something you have to visit for yourself to understand. Hands down greatest private area I have ever been!

This resort is large, and the facilities are incredibly beautiful--stunning. There is a lot to do and see. There are many really terrific restaurants situated here too. But it is the people who make the resort what it is. From the moment of my arrival to the time of my departure, I felt as though every member of the staff...

This place is top notch. It is high end but it is far from snobby or stuffy. The staff is fantastic and the amenities are excellent. Always helpful, attentive and greet you with a smile and hello. Highly recommend it either as a family get away or a romantic destination.
