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 were at the Jekyll Island Resort for a wedding. We spent a lot of time kicking it at the pool! And, Eric @ the pool bar took great care of all of us! The drinks, food, and service were great! Thanks! Cheers! WOOOOO!

Very nice southern hospitality stay
Reviewed 2 days ago

Very nice resort. Quaint old southern style rooms or cottages. Has authentic 1900s croquet on the lawn. Several craft and hand blown glass vendors on property, all local. Has the ritzy Dining Hall restaurant to local small burger joints, sweet shops and even a post office. Good for families or couples.

Each room is comfortable and authentically decorated. Staff is very friendly and helpful. You feel you are in a true garden district with garden home, fountains, beach and Spanish moss covered trees A shuttle is free and available to take you around the island as well as bikes for rent

Southern grandeur
Reviewed 2 days ago

Live oaks and Spanish moss, cool ocean breezes, bicycle paths, fine dining, high tea every afternoon, pianist daily in the grand dining room, fine teas and pastries, a treasure trove of history revealed in a 2 hour tour given daily at 2:00 p.m. Comfy beds and plantation shutters, croquet on the lawn. What's not to love about the Jekyll Island Club Hotel? We can't wait to visit again.

Best birthday weekend

Great atmosphere, excellent dinner at the Wharf. Salmon was cooked to perfection. Rooms were beautiful, staff was excellent. Recommend renting bikes and exploring. So much to see and do. It’s like stepping back in time with the best amenities. My happy place!!!

Jekyll Island revisited
Reviewed 6 days ago

January marked the 50th anniversary of my high school band trip to a competition in Jekyll Island. It was a huge trip for my band composed of 7-12th graders from several hundred miles away. I was a 12 year old 7th grader and have lots of memories from the trip. One of my friends and I decided to go back and see it all again. We had stayed in the millionaires club hotel in 1969 and it was old and in pretty bad shape. Today it has been beautifully restored and is the Jekyll island club. We had a wonderful time there. The staff is friendly, the food was delicious (we had the fixed price menu which is a lot of food but a great deal) and the grounds are gorgeous. The first night we met Robert Wayman, the head waiter and chief butler there, and when he heard our story he gave us a tour of the hotel then whisked us away on a golf cart ride of the historic district!!!! He was delightful and just made our night. He told us about the hotel tour and got us signed up for it and then went with us on it! We also took the tram tour of the historic district and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a delicious lunch by the pool with Eric who was our server. He recommended the shrimp tacos which were sooo good! Be sure and get a mango frozen rum drink too. Everyone at this resort was friendly and helpful and that,combined with the beautiful setting and wonderful accommodations,made for a fabulous trip.
