Had another wonderful summer stay in the Club House. Have been coming here since I was little and the Club House and surrounding property just keeps improving. The beach pavilion is a quick shuttle bus ride away - but it's more fun to use the hotel bicycles and ride to the beach and explore the rest of the island by bike. The pool makes for a nice break - and it's HUGE, and the bar staff and grill chef are really on point. Everyone working here was super polite and helpful, from the concierge to the valet.
The rooms are great - maybe a little 90s Designing Women-ish...but when in Rome. Slept great. Didn't hear a peep from anyone else staying on our hall, so the walls may be older but they must not be thin.
The mini bar prices were totally reasonable, which was a nice surprise, as was the room rate itself. Bike rentals on the other hand seemed a little bit high but worth it I guess?
Love the book store with all the cats nearby, though all the most interesting old books are outside on the $1 shelf.
Dinner at the Crane Cottage was pretty good for the most part. Jekyll hasn't really figured out the dining sitch yet, but also who cares because the burgers by the pool are pretty perfect and everything at least looks pretty.
If you go in June, be prepared for one million weddings and at least four conventions. People seemed especially chatty, which was nice.
Yes, a Westin is opening up right on the beach - and if you like boring slapdash hgtv cookie cutter motels, have at it. But the Jekyll Club is clearly the cooler option - on Jekyll and in all of Georgia.
