This program is a must do for anyone who can be away from home over Christmas. The entire program is well organized and fun as well as educational. Our leader Cindy is a local lady who presents true Southern charm and hospitality. The Jekyll Island Club Hotel is a step back in time, the staff is outstanding and service is always at the 5 star level. Rooms are all different, in various parts of the property, so if you are choosy about a room suggest you ask to see it before you bring your luggage in, I'm sure they will try to meet your requests, although some rooms would require you to pay an upgrade fee. If you do not like seafood or "gourmet" meals you might not get as much value out of the program, but I still always found something to eat and enjoyed the ambiance and service. The all day field trip to St Simons Island with lunch provided was perfect. Loved the bagpiper each afternoon. The hotel tour by the concierge was a highlight, she refers to the hotel as as a "land yacht" and calls the hotel she and her. Disappointed I never saw one of the resident ghosts.
