“If I were a rich man...”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

That's how this place got started. Some of America's richest men made Jekyll their summer home (loose translation of history there). Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, Vanderbilts. So in order to fully appreciate your visit, it's good to keep in mind that parts of this place were built around 1900, even late 1800's. Yes, some of the hotel rooms are small; that's how the place was built back then. But it's the whole historical experience: from knowing the federal reserve bank was born here to the enormous oaks with limbs so long their knees rest on the ground, to the "cottages" of the mega-rich, to the croquet court on the front lawn, to affordable rooms and tasty seafood. It's a wonderful way to spend a few day. Disclaimer: I don't work for the Chamber of Commerce. I do live in Georgia. I hate gnats, love mama and grits, and azaleas only bloom in the spring (for those looking at the photos).

This lovely, charming resort makes you feel like you are taking a step back to the Gilded Age. If only the walls could talk! Filled with tons of history, this resort is beautifully located on a secluded island away from all the hustle and bustle of life. If you are looking for a quiet, stress free, intimate getaway, come to Jekyll Island. We traveled with our family - 2 daughters ages 12 and 15. Our girls enjoyed the resort but this place is perfect for celebrating a wedding, honeymoon or anniversary. Our room was in the San Souci Building and it was very clean and spacious.

Tips: Enjoy a stroll along the lovely grounds, rent bikes and explore the island, visit the beach and a MUST DO is take the Hotel Tour. We were delighted to be able to view the Presidential Suite which is the only room which gives you access to the turret which is located on the top floor of the resort. Hats off to our tour guide Sherri who was very informative and did a fantastic job describing the "Lady" in her day.

Went down to the island during Shrimp and Grits Festival. We drove our Thunderbird and was afraid to park it with all the cars during the festival. The hotel let us park in front of the hotel. It was our wedding anniversary and they had champagne and chocolate covered strawberries in room. They made our weekend one we will always remember.

This was our third or fourth trip back to the Jekyll Island Club Hotel and we had the great time we've come to expect! The office staff, including Katharine and Heather, were very helpful, and our room was clean and comfortable. We rented bikes twice and toured around the Historic District; there always seems to be something new to learn about the Club and its founders.
This is a restored hotel and has a lot of charm!
If you tire of the peace and quiet on Jekyll, it's a quick 20-mile trip up to St. Simon's Island. Try the horseback rides along the north side of the island!

Room Tip: Rooms with enclosed sun porches provide additional sitting space.

Had breakfast there. Marginal. Nothing special. Basic cereals, bacon, biscuits, etc. Expecting more. Strolled the ground afterward and watched a round of full contact croquet. Really get the Victorian era.
