  • Quiet, elegant, spacious and accommodating

    My wife and I had the opportunity to stay at the Jekyll Island Club shortly before heading to Savannah. I, a mere 66 years old, honestly feel like a self-conscious whippersnapper commenting on an establishment with the long and distinguished history of the Jekyll Island Club Resort. Our room was well appointed, not spacious, but the hotel itself is, with lots of room for wandering around decks and verandas nicely outfitted with comfortable chairs and cocktail tables. The staff are unerringly prompt and cheerful, you have the feeling that they too know what a special place this is and how privileged the guests feel to be staying there. We are only sorry that we didn't get more of a chance to explore the grounds on foot, because they look wonderfully expansive, pleasant country for a stroll or bike ride. Spanish moss drapes the oaks and except for the quiet swish of electric utility carts carrying uniformed staff on one mission or another, the whole experience makes you feel you've magically stepped back maybe eighty years or so in time, and you half-expect a raked Duesenberg to pull up under the covered front portico. We did not have the opportunity to dine in one of the main rooms (we understand that proper dress is NOT optional) but made out very nicely at the adjacent Wharf (see our separate review). Lucky us, there was a wedding at the hotel that day - I'm sure the grounds must be one of the most popular nearby sites for taking the vows - and someone had sponsored a very fine fireworks show over the water that all the hotel's guests were able to see, a real Grucci demonstration of big mortars and rockets and a phenomenal grande finale orchestrated in a single color. Bravo! Absolutely outstanding! And thank you for the show, wedding party! If the delight you instilled in the Jekyll Island Club's guests that night is any witness, the bride and groom will be blessed indeed.

    This is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Not only are the rooms equivalent to suites, with a large bedroom, bathroom with large whirlpool tub, living room and dinette, but the relaxing atmosphere is superb. A Horse drawn Carriage is so relaxing and the drivers are so well versed in the history of the area. You can also take a tram type tour if desired. There are numerous shops on the grounds as well as the Georgia Sea Turtle Center and Hospital. Like lawn croquet? A manicured lawn croquet court sits outside the front of the clubhouse. There is also a wharf restaurant, dolphin tour boat ride and other activities.......and then there is the rest of the island! Oh, there is a $6.00 charge to get on the island.

    Well it certainly sounds like you found a lot to do as well as some relaxation time during your stay. That is what the resort and island is all about. We appreciate your feedback.

  • Perfect in so many ways!

    We have been visiting this island and the Jekyll Island Club Resort for over 25 years. Every time we leave it is difficult. It is a place to get away and relax. The attention to the customer experience is exceptional. The staff here is great. Mike has been greeting us at the resort for 17 years. He is a friendly familiar face to us each time we visit. The food at their various restaurants is great. Make sure to have a cheeseburger at the pool bar and dinner at The Warf. If you want an evening cocktail go see Stephanie at the lobby bar. It's not your typical hotel lobby bar. It's a unique place to meet people and enjoy wonderful conversation. We have visited in both the Fall and Spring. We are already looking at trying Jekyll in the winter.

    Wow, 25 years. We want to thank you for all the visits and being such a cherished repeat guest. Please always consider this your home away from home. We are also very fortunate to have team members that have been with the resort for many years serving guests like they were family. It is what we do and we enjoy it immensely. We look forward to welcoming you again in 2018.

  • The best- whether for business or pleasure

    by Skip J on 2017-10-10 02:05 pm

    I'm not sure there's anywhere like the Jekyll Island Club. It has a history that is unlike any place in the United States, and you can feel that history throughout the hotel grounds. Plus, the staff is professional and gracious, the rooms are comfortable and beautiful, the food is delicious, the weather is typically amazing, and the place gets better year after year. I've traveled around the world, and the secluded Jekyll Island Club Hotel is truly where I always return for a peaceful retreat to paradise.

    We really appreciate your kind words and love the fact that you keep returning to our beautiful island resort for retreat. We cherish our repeat guests. Our team gets to know them and this truly is their home away from home. We hope you will continue your visits here!

  • Vacation

    by Bob H on 2017-10-09 06:29 pm

    Spent five nights and could not of picked a better place to stay. The property is beautiful and full of history. Renting a bike and exploring the island is a must. The pool bar is great and had several delicious meals at the Wharf. We will definitely return.

    Owner Response
    This is such a great vacation destination. So much to do, or you can just relax-best of both worlds. The Pool House just re-opened this past June, so happy to know you enjoyed it and the Wharf, which just re-opened in August after a long renovation. We look forward to your return visit.
