One of Georgia’s Golden Isles, Jekyll Island is highly acclaimed for its uncrowded beaches and ample space for relaxation and quality family time. The luxurious Holiday Inn Resort at Jekyll Island resides on over a quarter mile of oceanfront property, boasting unmatched views of the Atlantic Ocean and a private beachfront. From a high-energy swimming pool, whirlpool and kiddy pool to an outdoor fire pit and playground, the resort offers many on-site amenities.
The beachfront resort has over 150 rooms, including 21 suites. Most rooms have ocean views and all the suites include private balconies with views of the Atlantic Ocean. The Kid’s Suite is a guest favorite, offering bed bunks for the kiddos, a separate bedroom for the parents and even a kitchenette.
At the Holiday Inn, guests can trust that they’ll have a stress-free vacation without having to leave the comfort of the property. The resort offers family-friendly activities throughout the day and the evening, including an outdoor fire pit and nightly entertainment.
If the urge to explore the island’s 25 miles of bike paths arises, the resort provides bike rentals. The Beach Village, just a 2-mile bike ride from the resort, has an array of beach shops, a grocery store, a delectable frozen yogurt spot and restaurants. The island’s bike path also leads to Driftwood Beach, a popular photo spot where giant driftwood speckles the beach.
