Previous guests can't help but gush over the rooms, which have eye-catching classic decor, Nespresso coffee makers, bathrooms with rain head showers and patios or balconies. In addition to the rooms, travelers were impressed with all the things available to do on-site, including fitness classes, spa treatments and plenty of beach activites, among many other options. There's also a laundry list of kid-friendly amenities here, including scheduled activities for both children and teens. But by far one of the biggest standout qualities of this hotel is the service, where many guests say the staff is unmatched. The resort sits on the island's southern tip, sharing real estate with its smaller sister hotel, The Lodge at Sea Island.

    According to recent guests, The Lodge at Sea Island is Southern luxury at its finest. While staying here, travelers will have access to championship golf courses and multiple top-notch restaurants. After a day spent golfing or on the beach, guests can kick back in rooms that are outfitted with Oriental rugs, spacious bathrooms with deep-soaking tubs and rain-head showers as well as butler service. If you're having trouble deciding between The Lodge and its sister property, The Cloister at Sea Island, keep in mind that the latter often sees more families. On the other hand, previous guests say that the smaller Lodge's quieter ambiance might better suit couples. Another perk for romance-seekers is the on-site restaurant, Colt & Alison, which serves up prime cuts of beef and fresh seafood in an intimate atmosphere. The resort sits on the southern tip of Sea Island, Georgia, about 86 miles south of Savannah.

    This gargantuan hotel lacks the personality but not the price of its smaller competitors. Guests who expect the standard Westin hotel will receive it, and have access to plenty of on-site amenities and activities along the way. There's a the on-site spa as well as the resort's greens and fairways — a major perk for avid golfers. Meanwhile, all rooms include the signature Heavenly Beds and bath fixtures, iHome radios, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access. And If you're lucky, you will get a pretty sweet view of the Savannah River; previous travelers recommend asking for a room with a river view, saying the panoramas are excellent. However, on the subject of water, The Westin Savannah Harbor is separated from the downtown area by said river, so you can expect your movements to be dictated by the cross-river shuttle ferries. For some guests, that's A-OK. In addition to golf and the spa, this Westin hotel boasts an outdoor pool and several dining options. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Château Élan makes for a premier meeting destination thanks to its four ballrooms, 12 conference rooms and tiered auditorium. The property's grounds also include a golf course, tennis courts, a winery, and a full-service spa. According to guests, the Château Élan packs quite a punch with the amenities it provides. There are seven restaurants that serve everything from French cuisine to traditional Irish pub fare, making it easy to find a menu that caters to your craving. If there is a perceived drawback to the Château Élan, it would be its remote location: The resort is about 46 miles northeast of Atlanta and a stay here will mean sacrificing an easy commute to Georgia's cities and airports. However, some say its secluded locale makes it all the more charming and relaxing for romantic getaways.
