What We Love

  • The club’s Victorian grandeur and manicured grounds surrounded by the Intracoastal Waterway
  • A stone’s throw from the island’s 240-acre museum-packed historic district
  • On-site dining options abound: Have high tea in the Riverview Lounge off the Grand Dining Room, lunch at Café Solterra and dinner at Courtyard at Crane Cottage
  • Soaking in South Georgia sun from the island’s remote beaches or by the club’s pool, open year-round
  • Quiet distractions, from the cozy library and lawn croquet to the putting green and pool
  • Free beach shuttle to the other side of the island

What To Know

  • Jekyll is known for its slower pace; come ready to relax and unplug, either as a family or on a romantic retreat
  • Free WiFi can be slow; not ideal for working vacations
  • Dining choices on the island are limited, but there are five on-site options
  • Emphasis on the outdoors means room decor is a tad uninspiring
  • The island is about an hour-and-a-half drive from Savannah, Georgia, and Jacksonville, Florida; for private arrival by air, plan to fly directly into Jekyll Airport, a mile away
  • Entry onto the island is $6 per car, so plan ahead with cash

We love it here!

We go every year and it is a favorite of every single family member. The pool bar is great, the Pier dining, bike riding around the island, the beach and the food! We love it all! We are a family of two adults a 17year old and an 8 year old and we all agree it's wonderful

The Best Sunday Brunch

A Sunday Brunch is usually a boring display of the usual break/lunch stuff. One pass and your about done. Not here. The food is displayed beautifully and in large amounts. Fresh slices of ham, beef and seafood in abundance. Desserts, salads, appetizers, juices, just keeps coming out and replenished. Then there is the champagne. Did I mention the coffee? We look forward to this every time we get to JI. It’s a bit expensive, but you get your money’s worth. Casual dress, comfortable setting, great service. Treat yourself. You can thank me later!

Sometimes a great review comes from how they handle a bad situation

We booked a night at the Jeckyll Island Club resort for a little get away on our way home. When we checked in the property was GORGEOUS and Was looking forward to what our room view would be. Well surprise (I had booked on hotels.com) One window overlooked the dump for the construction happening above us and one overlooked the AC units. On a Saturday they were doing some very loud renovations above us which made for a less than relaxing situation. We wondered why hotels.com never told us there may be construction happening -its a historic building after all. Round and round we finally got them to quit. We decided to take advantage of the day and sit by the pool, have drinks and go out for a nice dinner at the Grand dining Hall. Service form Jeremy and Tasha was outstanding! Every employee we encountered on our stay was helpful and outgoing, which mostly made up for the room issues. Thanks Hunter and Tim the piano guy too!! After breakfast and an omelet the size of the plate, we checked out and mentioned the construction to the new front desk who promptly and unexpectedly made it right. We just wanted to remind them in case anyone was checking in to the room later. More than satisfied with how it was handled. Moral of the story- Just be nice to the hotel staff, and they'll be nice to you.<3 We would love to go back and spend more time next time.
