  • So glad I made the decision to stay here!

    So glad I made the decision to stay here!

    I debated for a while whether I'd rather stay at the historic Jekyll Club or at a beachfront property. But I love historic hotels and the likelihood of Isaias coming through made me choose the Club. And I'm so glad I did!

    Too often, resorts are too pretentious, too far from the places you really want to eat, drink and visit -- and too overpriced if you do decide to eat there.

    Jekyll Island Club is the opposite of all that. I could have stayed for several more days to take tours, bike the island, see the shops, and just hang out with Johnette and other guests in the bar.

    While it was once the summer playground of the rich and famous. you learn on the tours just how far the original club owners went to avoid pretentiousness and a similar laid back atmosphere continues today.

    The Pantry is a gem of a casual dining place resorts never have -- with fresh high quality food at reasonable prices. Seriously, I bought homemade oatmeal there for just $3 one day -- the hotel I'm at now charges $10-$15. I actually came back after I left the resort because I couldn't find anything else I really wanted to try except The Pantry's $5 grilled cheese (a couple more $ with bacon) before I got on the road.

    And I did not miss being at the beach. I drove over to the sister Jekyll Ocean Club in less than 10 minutes one morning. And from what I could tell from driving around, most other hotels would have required driving to get a real meal (especially during COVID). Yet, I had The Pantry and The Wharf, where I had terrific fish and chips, within walking distance.

    The only downside was that my room (3305) was next to a housekeeping closet. So it was a bit noisy in the mornings. But the Annex building itself was close to the lobby, the Pantry, main dining room (weekend breakfasts only during COVID), gym, parking lot and Jekyll Wheels. Walking to The Wharf, Mosaic and historic shops each took about 5 minutes (I do walk fast).

    All in all, I loved it and won't stay anywhere else when I come back!

    Best family vacation ever! I can't say enough great things about this resort! Everything was perfect! The food at all of the restaurants was fabulous, and service was impeccable! Jeremy at the pool bar and Johnette at the club bar were both fantastic! We swim in the pools at both the Island club and the beach club... We went to the sea turtle museum and Hospital... We rented a red bug car... We played croquet on the great lawn and took a horse and buggy ride! Awesome experience in every way!

    Y'all. I have stayed in phenomenal resorts all over the world and Jekyll Island Resort (club house) is on par with the best. If you go to the Club pool, ask for Brittany. She is so attentive and genuinely nice.

    We had a great visit and will definitely return. Our stay was peaceful and fun and was a great way to celebrate my son's birthday. The resort was extremely accommodating and went above and beyond by treating my son for his birthday.

    We had an amazing stay at the Jekyll Island Resort. We could not have picked a better place to get away for the weekend. Beautiful place and friendly staff. Vinny went above and beyond to make sure we had a 5 start experience. He's an amazing manager and his F&B team are fantastic.
