Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and very helpful!
From the moment we walked in the entrance to the King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort, we were thoroughly impressed. The interior decor was upscale yet warm and inviting and the personnel we encountered were all very pleasant and accommodating. The blue and white decor of our 2nd floor room was crisp and comfortable and wow, what a pleasant view from our balcony.
The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. We especially enjoyed the special bar drinks, the cucumber/cilantro infused vodka martini and the K&P Aquarium was great (even took photos so we could try to replicate at home).
And the massage was fabulous and very relaxing -a very nicely decorated massage room,also. . .
Overall, what a wonderful trip and a Great Prize. Special thanks to you for making (and then having to re-make) all the arrangements for us.
We thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciate all the work the resort put into our visit. We would definitely recommend the King and Prince Resort as a great place to come to relax and enjoy yourself.
Sincerely, Judy S
This is our 3rd or 4th stay at this resort. We have always been pleased with the rooms, service and friendly atmosphere. The renovations of the lobby, restaurant and bar area are stunning. The decor although modern blends well with the older section of the hotel and has made the lobby a welcoming, relaxing place for drinks and dining. It seems to now be a very popular place for locals as well as tourists. We usually opt for an oceanfront room. Our plans are to return as often as possible.
Did not know this gem was hidden way out by the coast. Had driven past it before but never drove in to realize it sits right on the beach and affords private access to the water. They even have swimming pools overlooking the sea! I have not been there before their renovations but I think what they have done with the place is very stylish and classy. There is an airy open feel to the floor plan and the different seating areas make it a welcome entrance. I'd love to just sit by the fireplace with some wine and a book! We dined at Echo and enjoyed the service and the food. I was expecting exorbitant prices given the place is a historical hotel and they just renovated but you'll be surprised they have some very affordable prices. Sometimes we felt the portions were even way larger than the price we were paying - two meals for the price of one almost! Our room was ocean front and beautiful - its gorgeous to wake up to the sunrise over the ocean. Housekeeping ensured some of our specific requests for in-room beverages were taken care of. I only wish they provided microwaves in the room as well (they do have fridges) and moved to proper cups instead of paper glasses for the coffee. I really cant complain, we had a lovely experience staying here and cant wait to go back - this might end up becoming our annual beach vacation. Very close to Atlanta - a half day driving ain't bad and lots to do locally whether you want to be active or relaxed. Thanks King and Prince for a memorable vacation!
Great, Great place right on the ocean...such peace and wonder there...from the beginning to the end this was a great vacation...great staff,food,coffee and heated pool! You have to go there! Even though I was a guest of my daughter and her family...the reviews are wonderful from all of us staying at King and Prince for Spring Break...St Simons Island is truly a beautiful Island!
Just ask the reservationist to advise you on best rooms and value. They are highly trained professionals! like everyone else at King and Prince. Love that place!
I recently stayed at the King and Prince for a wedding weekend. I had been concerned about staying there because of past stories about it being out of date. I was wrong...at least for the lobby, bar, pool, and ocean side rooms. All the areas we were in had been updated. The staff was great and we had a wonderful time. I would go back. I would also upgrade to the ocean view rooms...very nice.
This is a beautiful hotel in a wonderful location. I was initially disappointed we couldn't stay on Jekyll Island but my experience at the King and Prince changed that. The hotel is beautiful, well maintained and the staff is exceptional (and I mean everyone from the desk staff to housekeeping!). Everything was fantastic for our girl's weekend away from stress. You'll get no complaints from this notoriously "high maintenance" girl!
This past April, my wife and I married at the Lighthouse on St. Simons. At the time we were still in graduate and law school, and our studies were calling. Nevertheless, we wanted to squeeze in a mini-honeymoon before we headed back to school. We could not have thought of a better place than the King and Prince. Also, we forgot to inform the staff that we were newlyweds until we checked in. Nevertheless, 30 mninutes after we arrived, your staff sent a complimentary bottle of champagne and strawverries for our enjoyment.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity. You helped make the first day of our marriage unforgettable.
Sincerely, Alan & Bradi
My husband and I came for our honeymoon and we had the best time! Everyone was so kind and welcoming and helpful to us. The room was amazing as was the food from the King's Tavern. My husband really enjoyed the golf course as did I even though I didn't play. We both got massages and the ladies there were so wonderful to us and I was completely relaxed and 'massaged out'. I will be recommending The King and Prince to everyone I talk to and we will definitely be coming back! 5 stars!!!
I've always preferred small hotels for the intimacy and personal attention they offer and the K&P certainly typifies those qualities. The staff and management team is gracious, responsive and hands-on in going all out to ensure the comfort and satisfaction of every guest.
Dear Mr. Johnson (Director and General Manager),
The King and Prince excellence, I've known and admired all my 45 years of living in Georgia, but the depth of kindness wrapped throughout those traditions when my visiting family experienced a medical emergency is extraordinary.
Your colleagues in so many different roles extended concern and compassion along with physical assistance to the adult son who remained with me after we sent the children home - and to me - for five long days and nights.
Krista, the night desk professional who took my "Please call an ambulance" request, greeted me by name each dawn as I returned to the hospital. My night-duty son said she treated him just the same as he straggled in from the hospital to sleep some.
My daughter-in-law, watching the unfolding trauma in the Hampton House, reported men with flashlights guiding the ambulance to us. I was as astonished and appreciative as she was when I learned of that exceptional King and Prince service later.
Front Desk Manager Alden Alias graciously assisted us with our ever-changing schedule, and its uncertainty, always interested in medical updates, and always encouraging me no matter how tiny that report.
Bud St. Pierre and Laurie Karagul kept the conversations on health and healing, even as I expressed distress at my untended travel story writing. Family is indeed the heart of The King and Prince.
My colleague and yours, Leigh Cort, clearly does not inflate the wonders! I truly believe the essence of The King and Prince played a key role in my husband's recovery.
To you and your staff, I am eternally grateful.
We just left the King and Prince after a 9 night stay. We love this place. It is centrally located on the island with a great beach. It is a short 1 mile walk to the village and a 1.75 walk to the inlet pier in the opposite direction. We stayed in the main building on the first floor in an ocean front room next to the pool. So it was an easy walk for the kids out to the pool and thru to the beach. I can say all of the staff at the King and Prince are excellent and helpful to your needs. I highly recommend this place.
We spent our 40th wedding Anniversary here and were treated like royalty. The entire staff was friendly and extremely helpful. We brought our bikes and kayaks and the staff helped to store the bikes and security kept out kayaks very safe. Service at the pool was wonderful too, afternoon margaritas were served by a very friendly staff. After all the biking and kayaking, an afternoon at the Royal Treatment Cottage was just the perfect touch. We can't wait to go back, many times!
We needed a rest! King and Prince Resort was recommended to us and we decided to invest in our well-being by staying for 10 nights. We are on our 8th night and quite honestly, we would stay longer if we could. The staff from checking in to dining room, to housekeeping and ground maintenance have been pleasant and many I would describe as "delightful". We have not felt it too pricey when we reflected on how well maintained the entire resort is kept. (The buildings) are so clean and decorated beautifully and there is a charm that you can't find in the newer and more modern places. Would we come back? You betcha!!!
This place is amazing. It has the best location, great restaurant, beautiful pools and most relaxing environment! Can't wait to go back!
BEAUTIFUL resort with great amenities. We stayed in an oceanfront king room that overlooked the pool and ocean. The room was VERY clean and spacious. This was an anniversary trip for me and my husband. Upon arrival, we found a chilled bottle of champagne and a lovely note wishing us a happy anniversary. Every single member of the staff from check in to check out were great! I honestly don't have one single complaint about this place. Its super super super and I cant wait to return!!!
My favorite weekend getaway with my hubby. The most peaceful, relaxing and quaint resort we have had the pleasure of staying. If you're looking to get away from your hectic and stressful life, this is the place for you! Love, love, love it!
Lovely family getaway! We just returned for the 3rd year in a row. The gated swimming area overlooks the beach and ocean with beautiful panoramic views. The condo we rented for the week was privately owned in the south section of the condominium area.
All in all, we love the resort and did not want to leave. The servers at the pool were very attentive and the staff was accommodating to our needs. We enjoyed swimming in the ocean, which has Mother Nature at your fingertips...a fabulous learning experience for future marine biologists (aka the kids) as well as adults. We will definitely be back!
I just returned from St. Simons Island. We went on a family vacation with 2 adults and 3 kids in oceanview room. Check in and out was painless. We had a lot of fun. The location and easy access to the beach are excellent. The pools were great. The overall service was good.I would definitely recommend this hotel. My wife is already asking when do we go back!
Although my recent visit to the King and Prince was my first, I sincerely hope it will not be my last. Supposedly nothing is perfect, but my three days at the King and Prince certainly came close. The room was well appointed, comfortable, and offered a spectacular view of both the pool area and the ocean. The front desk personnel were patient, courteous, and friendly. That's the personal touch that I found so great about the hotel and staff. I've visited St. Simons many times, but always stayed in rental units. After this wonderful stay, next time will again be at the King and Prince.
We vacation to St. Simons multiple times a year. The King and Prince is the only resort on the island, and we always have a wonderful time when we visit. Our most recent visit was this past March, and we enjoyed it immensely! We stayed in one of the Ocean Front Villas- the view was wonderful. We have also stayed in the hotel area, and we loved those rooms! The best part about the King and Prince would be the pool(s) and the deck overlooking the ocean. We also enjoy the grill/bar that is outdoors during the spring/summer months. The location of the resort is wonderful-the village is maybe 2 miles down the road, and there are multiple restaurants on the island that are very close; we have too many favorites! The staff at the resort is wonderful, and they are always there to help. We always enjoy visiting this little piece of paradise!p>
We stayed a long weekend at the King & Prince for Memorial Day. I will admit that I am a vacation "snob" of sorts and I do a ton of research before booking a trip. This trip was admittedly spontaneous and we booked the same day we were to arrive - I had heard plenty of great reviews of the property. We stayed in a 2 bedroom partial oceanview villa, and it was perfectly comfortable and quaint. The grounds of the resort were fabulous and the pools and beach access were superb. That aside, what was truly above and beyond was the service here. We were greeted with the warmest smiles and genuine care that our trip would be grand. Our sweet daily housekeeper, Lynn, exchanged handwritten notes with my 8 year old daughter, which was a huge highlight for her. The time Lynn took to do this really made a trip for my daughter extra special. She also carefully folded their blankets and placed their animals playfully on their beds. These little things go a LONG way when traveling with kids. My 4 year old also sliced her foot open out on the sandbar. As my husband brought her back over to the beach and went to find a first aid kit, a very kind security guard, Kent, insisted on coming with him and checking her out. She was okay despite a bad cut and we went to the room for the day. Kent called to check on her and even more impressively, as we were returning from dinner at 8 p.m., Kent was leaving the front door of our room where he had stopped to check on her again. He wanted to be sure she was okay and he wanted to bring her some ice cream. We were so impressed with this above and beyond service, there is no doubt we will return to the King and Prince! Thank you to the staff at this resort for making a difference. AND THE ISLAND IS BEAUTIFUL!
The K & P resort is a magnificent historic hotel that has all the modern upgrades. It has rooms and suites for all different budgets, yet you all get the same amenities. We stayed in one of the historic buildings cabana rooms with a patio and french doors opening to the ocean - beautiful. It is perfect for a beach and pool relaxing vacation. The beach is fabulous. Fishing is nearby. We would definitely go back there again.
Great beach hotel in the heart of St Simons island in southern Georgia! Lots of options for lodging from rooms, villas and cottages. Nice pool with excellent pool side service. Excellent helpful staff!
Returning to the ‘real’ world has been challenging after the marvelous VIP treatment Larry and I received over the past four days at The King and Prince. What a wonderful getaway at such a beautiful property - words fail when I try to enumerate everything. Exploring St. Simon’s via our rental bike from Ocean Motion was perfect – the bike lanes made even a novice like myself very comfortable, and we were able to get to Neptune Park and the art festival, as well as the numerous shopping options, quite easily. Having the beautiful pool and beach only steps away from our room was convenient, and we took advantage of this privilege!
Shrimping on the Lady Jane was something we will long remember – it was a gorgeous day, and this was something we likely would not have done on our own, but we certainly will do again. We were as excited as the children on board when the net released and we saw what was captured along with the delicious shrimp we enjoyed during the trip – I’ve probably never eaten fresher ones! The crew was knowledgeable about the various fish, turtles, sting rays, etc., that were brought up, and quite patient in answering questions.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the excellent service by the staff at The King and Prince – we were treated like rock stars. Our side-by-side massage was so relaxing and peaceful in such a beautiful environment – Sonya and Bucky did an amazing job for both of us.
The food as also wonderful. We were delighted with each perfect and beautiful course, and for our primo ocean-view table for our dining experience.
I was grateful for this memorable trip.
Thanks again! You and your associates are absolutely the best…..
Dear Hotel Management & Staff
Today is the last full day of our 14-day stay. This will finish our 16th visit, and celebrating our 15th anniversary. It will be very hard leaving this special place on Monday morning
We didn't want to leave without some kudos to your excellent staff:
Each and every time we had contact with these folks, smiles greeted us, kind words spoken, mention of how glad they are that we came to the K&P.
We feel this is our second home and staff are our extended family. The charm and the southern hospitality keep us coming back. Our reservations are already made for next year's return and we look forward to it.
Keep up the good work and let those mentioned know we did so. We have not one complaint, due to your special staff. We would be remiss if we didn't mention all staff at the poolside. We didn't get specific names, however they were constantly dashing about to service those wishing food or drink. You have a very special place here!
We just returned from staying at The King and Prince Resort. We booked a three bedroom villa for our family of eight. The purpose of our stay was to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary with our four sons and the two older sons' wives. The staff couldn't have been more professional, kind or gracious. The front desk staff were just so very professional and kind. It ended up being the most fantastic vacation that our family ever had. The family LOVED THE WHOLE PLACE and everything about it! The lady who cleaned our villa was wonderful. She was very happy and pleasant and willing to accommodate our family in any way. Did a great job on our villa every day. I want to tell everyone at The King and Prince a big huge "THANK YOU" for all of your kindness and gracious service to our family. You guys are all awesome and very professional. My family will be returning. Now my boys want to plan a trip with their in laws and family as well. Our good friends will be staying two days with you guys in July because of our great experience. Did I mention that we got champagne delivered to our villa for our 30th anniversary? What a nice touch. Thanks again King and Prince! You guys are wonderful!
We just returned from our weekend getaway for our anniversary. The King and Prince is a wonderful gem! We look forward to returning soon and often. We booked last minute and still were able to get a great room. The property takes you back in time with its outdoor swings overlooking the ocean. Our room was very clean and the bed was heavenly. Everyone at the hotel and everywhere we went on the island was so friendly and helpful. There is great food within walking distance. Truly a great place!
My husband and I have just returned from our first stay at the King and Prince Resort, and are already planning a return visit. The property hugs the beachfront with lots of nooks and crannies and choices of accommodation. Loved the historic stained glass windows, the outdoor pool pavilion, and being situated right on the beach. High marks to the staff who seemed very well trained and were full of smiling southern charm.
The food was excellent - loved the Shrimp and Grits. Had a great time on St. Simons - be sure to have breakfast one morning at the Sandcastle - unbelievable breakfast - DELICIOUS! Great trolley tour and went shrimping on the Lady Jane across the causeway in Brunswick - fascinating.
I found the King and Prince while searching for a place where: a) the sun was shining (this was a challenge in early May this year) b) was right on the beach c) was fairly upscale but still reasonable. We needed downtime this trip so that means contemplative walking, sunning, and reading. That fit St Simons pretty well and the King and Prince Hotel very well.
We spent 5 nights at the K&P last week. We had an amazing view of the pools and the ocean. The property is beautiful and well maintained. The housekeeping staff was very friendly and left cheerful notes everyday. I would highly recommend The King and Prince to anyone who wants to vacation on SSI.
This is a great place for families. I have 2 small children and our stay was awesome. The beach was great and the staff was super friendly! We stayed in a 3br villa and our experience was tremendous. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a peaceful resort-style atmosphere that is also family-focused.
We were extremely satisfied with the resort and its beautiful surroundings. Everything exceeded our expectations. Monica did a marvelous job of keeping our room clean and sweet smelling our entire stay. We would like to recommend her for special commendation. We took lots of photos & are sharing them with friends. We'll be singing your praises for a long time. Thanks!
The service was outstanding, and that is something that can really make or break a vacation. Congratulations to your team members for being so accommodating at all times. We also especially liked the super-comfy bed linens which were very high quality, and felt so good to slip into each night. Thanks so much for a lovely visit.
We stayed here for the first time last fall and loved it. When we got an email from them offering us their winter specials we jumped at it. We were offered an oceanfront room at a wonderful price. It was winter, so we did not expect much as far as weather was concerned, but we just wanted to stay at the hotel again since we enjoyed it so much the first time. As luck would have it, it was sunny and in the 70s the whole time we were there. The beach was packed which just made the trip that much better. A great hotel and beautiful weather in January is hard to beat. We can't wait to go back!
It has been years since I visited the King and Prince and I am happy to say that the staff is just as attentive as before, the rooms comfortable, the views outstanding, and the food delicious. My husband and I took a couple of days after Christmas to recoup from the rush and could not have chosen a more excellent place!
The King and Prince has kept the charm of her origin and coupled great service with spectacular views, comfortable rooms, and southern hospitality for an outstanding get a way! Having frequented K & P in the 70's and 80's, I am pleased that the owners have kept the resort family friendly, but still an excellent place for my husband and I to rest and unwind after a busy season of work, family, and holidays. It was also tastefully decorated for the Christmas season, making it more special!
From the ocean view rooms over the pool to the restaurant...this hotel is worth every penny! The beach is super clean and not crowded. The pools are clean and inviting. Lots of places to relax and watch the waves roll in. Staff is super nice and welcoming. There is a hole in the wall BBQ joint right outside the hotel gates...you would be crazy to not stop in and partake! Cannot say enough nice things about this property. Wonderful experience both times I have stayed.
We are from Colorado and wanted to spend a few days on the Georgia coast with an ocean view and ocean sounds. We also wanted a beach community that was attractive - but not stuffy. The K&P on St. Simons was a bullseye. I had read on Trip Advisor that the staff is exceptionally friendly; I heartily agree.
I wanted to let you know about a young man that provided exceptional service. Our first night at our villa, we realized just before bedtime that the sliding glass door would not lock. I called the front desk and they immediately sent Benji from maintenance to check on it. He was able to lock the door. While he was there, I asked if he could show me how to open a window in one of the bedrooms. He was unable to open the window, but did close off the heating vent and assured me he would check on the door/windows the next day. When I arrived back at the room later that evening, he had left me a note that the door had been fixed, but unfortunately the windows were screwed closed. He apologized for the inconvenience and provided me a fan. I just wanted to let you know how friendly, helpful, and dedicated this young man is. As a human resources/customer service representative, I don't always get to witness great customer service. Thank you!
We stayed at The King & Prince "Hotel" on the first night of our honeymoon back in 1979. It was just a relatively small oceanfront hotel (built in 1935) that we found by accident while driving north from Florida on our wedding night. We came back for a 2nd honeymoon 33 years later. WOW! It's now a beautiful resort. All I can say is "Absolutely Wonderful experience." Southern Hospitality lives here. Every facet of our stay could not be better... ....from making reservations to checkout. The Staff, accommodations, dining, grounds, .....EVERYTHING! Just Top Notch. We have traveled all over the world, and this resort is right at the top tier of some very exclusive places we've stayed. They just do what they do VERY WELL! We will be back EVERY YEAR from now on.
We stayed here on our honeymoon 48 years ago, and it was wonderful then and it is now! Beautiful resort with top notch southern hospitality!
My family and I stayed at the King and Prince for five nights in August 2012. We chose St. Simon's because we had not been to coastal Georgia and it represented a partway point on a drive home from Tampa to Virginia. Overall, St. Simon's island is wonderful. We were able to take advantage of a number of outdoor activities in the area and went to the beach every day at the hotel. The hotel itself has a very gracious and helpful staff, a great location, and nice features. We were pleased by the meals - we mostly had lunches or breakfasts there, just one dinner - and loved the beach.
We have been going to the King & Prince for 19 years. Obviously we have always loved it. Yes, they have redone the Oceanside pool area... beautiful, but this year something special is going on. The service, the organization, the smiles were everywhere. It has all been kicked up a notch. It was noticed and appreciated. Thank you for making our visit better then ever!
Just wanted to thank you for yet another wonderful stay! We were there last weekend to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary, the third year in a row we have stayed at the K&P for our anniversary. The staff is always warm and friendly, the room is always lovely, and the bottle of wine was such a nice gift, thank you for everything! We will be back next year for our 38th anniversary!!
My family and I were guests at the K&P over the 4th of July week and we wanted to express how fantastic EVERYTHING was at the hotel! We have vacationed at the K&P for many many years and this was by far one of our best stays. We were delighted with the new renovation of the pool area and the service was more than EXCEPTIONAL. We fell in love with the staff. We even felt compelled to leave all the servers we came in contact with a small token of our appreciation as we were leaving St. Simons. Please continue to do what you are doing. We are so looking forward to our next trip down to the island. The K&P is a huge part of our lives and will always hold a special place in our hearts! Kudos to all! We can't wait to return!
If you are looking to find a resort where you can arrive, park your car, and never leave until you get ready to check out then the King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort is the place for you!! The King and Prince has everything you need to enjoy both a long stay or just a short getaway. The staff is wonderful and cater to your every need. The restaurants and bars are top notch. And the rooms, private homes, and Villas are a just what one needs to relax and enjoy a stay on the most beautiful places on Earth! A visitor can walk to a variety of attractions, shops, and restaurants or get a beach cruiser and just ride around this little slice of Paradise. When you get here you won't like to leave! The best part was the beach pool/ pool deck overlooking the beach. There you will find a staff that zips around caring for the visitors and anticipating their needs. We eagerly anticipating our next visit to the King and Prince and enjoying a little slice of Paradise!
My wife and I booked reservations on the Gulf in south Florida for a Thursday through Sunday break. After checking the weather, we noticed that tropical storm Debby was going to "rain on our parade". I began looking for somewhere else to go to escape the storm. I found the King and Prince, and we drove up that day. After checking in we ate at the hotel's restaurant with a beach view. The food was good and so was the service. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the rooms are very clean and spacious. We brought our bicycles and that was one of the best items we brought with us. The whole area is about a five mile perimeter that we biked every morning after breakfast in the adorable little area on Mallery street with all the shops and restaurants. We sat by the pool for two days straight from about 10a.m. until about 6p.m. The pool is beautiful and over looks the beach. My wife and I will definitely come back!!!
The King and Prince is the perfect getaway from this busy world. My husband and I have visited several times, and we love it more every time. Though it is an older property, they have worked hard to keep things updated and not lose the historic charm. It is the perfect combination of new and old. There is nothing like sitting by the King and Prince pool, overlooking the ocean, and simply relaxing. We love being able to stroll to the nearby Crab Trap restaurant for dinner, or simply staying at the resort for a lovely dinner overlooking the ocean at the King's Tavern. On our last day of our most recent visit, we decided to wake up to watch the sunrise. It was the perfect ending to a great trip.
Now, let me first say, we did not stay here overnight, we only came here for brunch. BUT, this hotel...worth reviewing for just a short visit. I have so much to say about this place. Amazing waterfront location, long, perfectly manicured grounds...gorgeous pool with plenty of places to sit. We had breakfast in their dining area, awesome water front view. The lobby was open, sunny and beautiful. I could walk around this hotel for hours. There are swings to sit on facing the water and the view is breathtaking. Maybe some day we will go back and stay there but I can't say enough about this impressive resort!
I had the pleasure of staying at The King & Prince this past May as I traveled to St. Simons Island and, as usual, it was a delightful experience. Time and time again, it is such a joy to come back to The King & Prince with its breathtaking views of the ocean and tranquil atmosphere. When I visit the coast, there are three things that I look for in a hotel:1) a beautiful view of the ocean and beach, 2) first rate service from the staff and 3) a clean and well-kept room. The King & Prince exceeds these expectations, allowing me to truly enjoy my time away from home.
Just a wonderful place. My husband and I have stayed there 5 times now. With no complaints. And will be back again.
Had a beachside room - was able to sit outside 20 feet from the ocean at nite. Nice room room service and seafood was good. The staff was friendly- our tennis lesson was very fun and informative. Concierge staff also helpful. Would be good for couples or people with children.
I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful resort on our 30th wedding anniversary and had a GREAT STAY! We had and incredible view. Staff was friendly and always had a smile to offer. What a delightful surprise it was to see that they gave us a complimentary bottle of champagne and a welcoming card! I cannot begin to state enough how happy that it made my wife and how memorable that it made our anniversary!
Joined my husband for a four day business trip in January 2012. Customer service at the front desk was fantastic. We kept them busy with many requests. They remembered us by name and were sincerely courteous. SSI is a lovely place. It's a relaxed feel from Hilton Head or Myrtle Beach...but still has a great night life. Perfect location to the beach. Be sure to ask the local for places to eat. All were fantastic.
I went here with an industry group for 3 days of meetings. The staff was always helpful, no matter the type of request. Good coordination of our event made the stay and meetings very pleasant.
My mother and I stayed at the King and Prince last weekend, as I was attending a conference there. I had eaten at the hotel before but never had the privilege of staying there. The immaculate, large and lovely room, the beach, the food and the friendly, caring staff are truly unsurpassed. I have traveled all over the world but find the King and Prince is second to none in providing most superior quality in a hotel stay. I give it my highest possible recommendation. It is truly the best of Georgia and the best of true southern hospitality!
I have never had such great service! We were actually booked at another hotel but the rooms weren't ready and we had to get to our meeting. We went to K&P to check availability and they not only let us check in but met our price at the other resort! Kudos to Ms Veronica and staff who greeted us by name each time she saw us and always had a lovely smile on her face! View was breathtaking, grounds are kept immaculate! We will definitely be back for pleasure on our next trip!
We stayed at The King and Prince with our extended family the week between Christmas and New Years and could not have enjoyed a more special time. You feel like you're stepping back in history with all the modern amenities. The holiday decorations gave the property a special feel and the staff made you feel like family. Check in was a breeze and when Shannon realized we were an extended family traveling together, she even upgraded us to a larger room- she made us feel special. The room was traditionally furnished, the beds were very comfortable and the extra vanity and sink outside the full bath made getting 4 people ready much easier. The room was clean and we enjoyed our sunset and sunrise view immensely. We had drinks in the dining room and experienced a level of service you don't often enjoy in our busy worlds. My son enjoyed the workout facility. You can walk to several great restaurants if you choose to go off property. I'm looking forward to returning in warmer weather to enjoy the beach and golf. St. Simons is a special place and The King and Prince make it even more special.
I spent 3 days at a conference at this resort. The rooms were just beautiful. I was in an ocean view room with a balcony. The room was refreshingly clean and inviting. Great place for a retreat! The meeting space was also well done with everything placed to perfection. The staff was friendly and helpful. I will return to this jewel in Saint Simons Island!
I was there for a hotel management conference. We are some of the pickiest people when it comes to critiquing a hotel because we are in the business. I will have to say the staff at this hotel is top-notch. The accommodations were divine. We would love to visit again with the family and get more beach time!!
I was able to stay at this resort the first week of November and loved every moment of my stay. I was there on business, and even while working, it felt like an escape. Great room with an ocean view and balcony. I was even able to sleep with the balcony door open one night because the weather was beautiful. My only regret was not bringing a bathing suit! The beach was fantastic.
I stayed at the King and Prince on November 9th and 10th for a meeting. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is beautiful with a classic style located directly on the beach. It is a beautiful setting. The room was nicely appointed, very clean with a great bed. The patio facing the ocean was a perfect place to sit and relax at the end of the night. The bathroom was spacious with lots of very hot water. This is a unique hotel, perfect for work our pleasure. I will make it a point to come back to this hotel in the future.
I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful resort on a business trip and had a GREAT STAY! Views are incredibly and the rooms are clean and spacious. Staff was friendly and always had a smile to offer. I had a tasty lobster and seafood lasagna at the restaurant. Overall a great stay.

We had a great time during our visit to the King and Prince Resort. The location was fantastic and the staff were all very friendly. It was a memorable experience and I can't wait to plan my next return trip there. The newly renovated rooms are very comfortable and the ocean view rooms had an amazing view.

This resort is nestled in a beautiful quite setting surrounded by the ocean. We were there for a meeting but at night it was so wonderful sitting on the balcony hearing the waves and seeing the sunset. I am looking forward to returning for some personal time. The staff is excellent, room was clean and food good.

I just completed my second trip there. What a delightful, charming hotel with a terrific staff. The service details are comparable to 5 star expectations. My first trip there was with a large group. Their attention to detail for the guest rooms, the meetings, and the food and beverage service was the best I have ever experienced. This last visit was with a few friends. I recommend this hotel for any occasion.

This resort is a great price value. It sits right on the ocean wall. You can listen to the waves all night long. Our favorite was the ironed sheets and the down pillows. There are cooked to order omelets for breakfast and a great IPA beer in the bar. The staff has that Southern hospitality, which makes you feel like you are at home.

Had the pleasure of staying here for a night--great location--right on the shore. Beautiful sunrise and great ocean breeze. The staff was most accommodating and the facilities and food--outstanding. Would make a point of staying here next time I return to the area!
Cindy O, from Post Stay Questionnaire says:
Beautiful facility with true southern charm.
Tom M, from TripAdvisor says:
This was my first visit to The King and Prince, and I have to say it was one of my favorite hotels ever. It's charming, well laid out, casual, beautiful, has a great beach, and very friendly, helpful staff. The rooms were impeccably clean, and the workout facility was in perfect shape, also with immaculate rest rooms and new weights. The hotel occupies my favorite spot on the island, close to everything, with a great little barbeque spot a block away and just five minutes from the best barbeque place I've ever visited, Southern Soul. The hotel's dining areas are really beautiful. The lobby shop was great. I hope to visit as often as I can. It's a real home away from home, with the gracious ambiance of the past matched by modern convenience and southern warmth to the max!!
Thomas E, from Post Stay Questionnaire says:
This was our first visit to the King and Prince. Everyone we came in contact with was very helpful and very friendly. Everyone, including the maid service was very friendly and always said hello. We hope to return sometime soon.
Tim K, from Post Stay Questionnaire says:
Very impressed with front desk service, and particularly with Rob who resolved some booking and reservation concerns and ensured that all issues were resolved - his attention to detail and customer service had a tremendous impact on the quality of our entire stay. Everyone involved, from the valet and service personnel to management, appears to share the same customer-focused approach. This was definitely one of the best vacation stays I have had anywhere in recent memory due to the consistent professionalism exhibited by all employees.
Jill G, from Post Stay Questionnaire says:
Jenifer was an outstanding waitress. I wanted to thank all of the staff from the tavern to the restaurant. It is nice to have people remember you from your last visit and to acknowledge and appreciate our repeat business. It is a pleasure to get to know more about the wonderful staff at the King and Prince.
Kathleen M, from Post Say Questionnaire says:
Our stay at the King and Prince was quite memorable and made extra special by the presentation of a bottle of Champagne upon arrival to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary. This was a very pleasant surprise and we appreciate the thoughtfulness of the Management and Staff on our behalf. All the staff were extremely courteous and helpful, and extended the real "Southern Hospitality" that we have come to love about Georgians.
Mary Jo, from TripAdvisor says:
The King and Prince Hotel and Beach Resort on St. Simons Island is the ultimate in vacation experiences for couples, family or special occasions. Our room was a suite which walked out to the beach. We also used the nearby golf course which is both beautiful and a challenge to golfers of all levels. There are several excellent restaurants in the hotel and many more in the Village which is within walking distance of the hotel. It is also possible to arrange through the hotel, visits to nearby attractions including Savannah and Amelia Island, I would definitely recommend this resort.

We have vacationed at the K&P for about 10 years now. We just returned for a 4 night, 5 day dream of a vacation. It was so very relaxing. The whole island is easy and a step back in time. The whole resort is beautiful and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We have stayed in all sorts of guest rooms as well as the villas. My blood pressure lowers the minute I step foot on the island and K&P is large enough to have your privacy but not so large you can't get around. Rent bikes and explore the pier and island and walk the beaches of East beach and take in the beautiful scenery and then relax in the pools. No need to drag chairs down to the beach...just sit in the lounge chairs by the ocean by the pool that are provided by the hotel as well as beach towels.

My stay at King & Prince Beach and Golf Resort was amazing. The view is magnificent from when the sun rises to when the sun sets. Just a few feet away from the Atlantic Ocean, you will often see a cruise liner from a distance. The rooms are fairly big and neatly cleaned. The service is what is expected on a 5 star resort. For lunch, I preferred having some finger foods and a cocktail from the outside cafe. The friendly staff made my stay at King and Prince Beach Resort worth while.
Fred B, from TripAdvisor says:
For the second year in a row, my wife and I chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary at the King&Prince. We had a fourth floor, ocean front room, overlooking the pool area. I mentioned the special occasion when making the reservation and we were surprised to find a complimentary bottle of chilled sparkling wine in our room when we arrived. We enjoyed the beverage while sitting on our private porch watching the waves break on the rock barrier below. During our stay, my wife discovered that she had left her eyeglasses in the hotel rest room but when we returned to the rest room the glasses were gone. We asked a house keeper who said she had not cleaned the rest room but she knew who did. She walked half way around the resort to find another house keeper who returned the glasses to us in a sealed plastic bag. The glasses story is just an example of the way all levels of the staff go out of their way to make your visit as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. We love St. Simons Island and the King and Prince. We think the restaurant is excellent and there are a dozen other fine restaurants on the island. We have been going there for twenty years and will probably spend our next anniversary there
Barbara R, from Website Guest Comments says:
My husband and I stayed here for our 40th anniversary and were surprised by a bottle of champagne. We have stayed at the K & P for our anniversary 4 of the last 5 years. Every time I hate to leave. St. Simons is so great and is not a tourist trap. Just relax and stay as long as you can. I feel blessed to have found SSI & the K & P. We will be back.
Douglas M, from Post Stay Questionnaire says:
Your reservation people were excellent and very professional. Linda, the Concierge, was SUPER. Perfect hotel....one of the best!!!!

My wife, Nancy, and I enjoyed meeting you during our weekend at the King and Prince. We really appreciate your attentiveness to guests' desires (such as the orange juice!) Jackie was an outstanding server in the dining room; so was Adam by the pool. All in all, it was a most pleasant experience, just as we had remembered thirty-one years ago.
Tonya M, from Post Stay Questionnaire says:
Absolutely loved staying at the King and Prince. You have an excellent staff and I found everyone to be very friendly and professional. Thank you for making my trip and stay at your resort such a pleasant experience!

We spent our honey moon at the King and Prince June 1961.We have a special fondness for this resort. It is always good to be there.

We came for our honeymoon and were really excited to see notes from staff and housekeeping, along with several other special touches to the room!
Maxine E, from Post Stay Questionnaire says:
We were surprised and thrilled to find a bottle of wine and decorations when we arrived in our room - for our anniversary. It was incidentally mentioned when we reserved our rooms, and the thoughtfulness will result in our staying there again!!! Very nice!!!!
Alexander & Anne R, from Post Stay Questionnaire say:
It was our 39th anniversary so we were at K&P during that time. After checking in and heading out to enjoy SSI we arrived back in our room to find a bottle of champagne and a note from the management and staff. What a wonderful and thoughtful surprise! Thank you.
Shane & Mary O, from Post Stay Questionnaire say:
Our stay at the K&P was wonderful. It was our first anniversary and the staff sent us a complimentary bottle of champagne, which we were so grateful for. We mostly lounged on the beach and around the pool and it was a just a great overall experience.
Linda B, from Post Conference Evaluation says:
Our group experience was Awesome! I really appreciate the staff for making this one of our best retreats. We look forward to returning. Thanks Julie, Laurie & Jamie!
Tommy T, from Post Conference Evaluation says:
Absolutely perfect-everything! If we have a reunion next year, and if it is at St. Simons, we will definitely return to the King and Prince.
Dell H, from Post Stay Questionnaire says:
Wonderful stay! It was our honeymoon and we were greeted with congratulations at check in and a complementary bottle of champagne in our room. Little touches such as this helped made our stay excellent.

Although our stay at the King and Prince was a business trip for my husband, I enjoyed it just as much as a luxury vacation. The resort is beautiful, with three swimming pools and a gorgeous view of the ocean. Our room had a crisp, clean feel and was very well appointed with extras like luxury bedding, an extra large new TV, free Wi-Fi and a terrific view of the ocean. Our room was on the ground floor with an inviting patio a mere few steps to the pool. There is drink and food available at the pool along with a very attentive wait staff: I never got out of the pool once for refills on my piña coladas.
Chocolates and a turned down bed awaited us at the end of every day and a USA today newspaper was on our doorstep every morning. When it was time to leave I wanted to stay another day and so we did. For a gorgeous treat watch the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean from poolside; something I'd never seen before, but definitely worth rising early.

This was our second stay at the King and Prince. We stayed for four nights with an eleven year old and a five year old. I am happy and proud to say my children’s favorite memories were at the King and Prince. A long fun beach, darling independent shops and barbeque and seafood places to walk to, lunch by the pool, fantastic hotel restaurant, well kept tennis court and pool all added up to great times together. We'd raft to a sandbar, go for mile walks, jump waves + retire to a well appointed room. It is now our annual spring stop; our tradition...even if from 14 hrs away!

Great food, easy access to beach, nice pools, great service (shout outs to front desk), nice room with awesome view, what more could we ask?
Don P, from TripAdvisor says:
Our stay from our arrival till departure was great. The staff is very friendly and helpful especially with planning our daily activities. The resort has direct beach access. I loved that the beach is never the same. You can always see something new and interesting each day. The main building itself has its own history. The decor transports you to a grander era. There are multiple pools in which to swim.
Tina H, from Post Stay Questionnaire says:
Every staff member that we came in contact with was extremely friendly. Everyone greeted you with a smile and a “hello, how are you!”

Employees at the front desk, bell staff and housekeeping are always so pleasant and helpful; it is pure joy to deal with them.

We had a great time and hope to return as soon as possible! Everything about this stay was super. The room, room service and front desk assistance was excellent. Our room was fresh and the temperature was great. Food and service at the restaurant was very good at all meals. I give it a very high thumbs up.

Great place to stay! Full service and relaxing, great location, great food. It was a completely enjoyable business trip and I want to go back already.
Stacy B, from Post Stay Questionnaire says:
This was our 6th year at The King and Prince and it just keeps getting better. We love the addition of the umbrellas poolside and the champagne was a very nice touch. We go there for our anniversary each year and have talked about bringing our children for a week long stay but we like that this is "our" place. We are already looking forward to next year!
Melinda, from TripAdvisor says:
Beautiful room and helpful staff. The room was large with plenty of room for my computer (a nook for it) and a separate table to work on. The staff was extremely helpful any time I needed something.
Melody, from TripAdvisor says:
I just returned from a week long business meeting at the King and Prince; this was the third time that I had been there. Everything was wonderful!!! The wireless connection was good and the service was excellent. They have a beautiful pool and the restaurant is very good. I would recommend this hotel for business or leisure travel. I can't wait to return.

This is our 11th year staying here for a conference and we really look forward to coming here each and every year. I appreciate the addition of the poolside umbrellas. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. I sat out on the patio while the housekeeper spent a full 45 minutes cleaning my room. Often times hotel housekeeping will not vacuum your room until you check out. Our room was vacuumed each day. I am a bit of a neat freak, so I notice and appreciate such things. I was ironing (that neat thing again) and discovered that the iron was leaking water. I called the front desk and had a new iron in less than 5 minutes. I had a follow up phone call to insure that I was satisfied. Extra towels or extra blankets, it always came quickly and with a smile, followed by a "can I help you with anything else Sir". I am already booked for next July!!
Ricky B, from Post Stay Questionnaire says:
Your staff is great! Extremely polite, great manners, and looked like they enjoyed their job. As always, you exceed my expectations. Keep doing what you are doing.

Great resort, my kids loved staying there, great conference location, great location for summer meeting.
Shawn H, from Post Stay Questionnaire says:
St. Simons Island and The King and Prince resort is our "happy place"! We have returned almost every 4th of July weekend for the last 12 - 14 years, often bringing friends or other family. We look forward to the quaintness, and the familiar atmosphere that only comes from returning to a place over and over can bring.

I have been staying at King and Prince for 33 years and look forward to it every year. I always recommend it to other friends and family.
My husband and I very much enjoyed our visit at the King and Prince on St. Simons Island, GA. The property and island is charming and holds a lot of history. At the King and Prince, our room was perfect... clean and relaxing. We spent our days by the pool where we were served lunch by the pool staff. We hope to make the King and Prince a regular vacation spot.
I knew when I saw the Keurig coffee maker in my room that this was my kind of place. Biggest decision was deciding to put my towel on the beach or by the pool. I was so comfortable and relaxed I had a hard time leaving the resort to see the beautiful St. Simon sights. I have a passion for live oaks and southern history. Can't wait to go back!
Perfect setting, beautiful atmosphere, excellent service and a beach setting is the framework for an excellent vacation or weekend getaway. The Resort features a pool, ocean front dining, and it is close enough to walk to nearby restaurants as well. The rooms have been redecorated and are extremely comfortable. The staff is at one’s service and so polite. If you want to relax, make memories, and have a great time, the King and Prince Beach Resort is the place to visit!
We love to come to Saint Simons Island and stay at the King and Prince. My husband and I had our honeymoon at the King and Prince 17 years ago and have brought our boys to vacation here also. The smell of the marshes, the beautiful moss draped oaks, the history, and the beauty of the ocean bring us back every time. ... The King and Prince has the beauty and relaxation of a great Southern Resort along with the hospitality that keep us returning to make family memories. I love the smiles on our children's faces when we come and stay as they play in the sand and dream....
The K & P is special to us. My wife and I met in the lobby in May of 1990. We spent our honeymoon there in 1993. We come to St. Simons at least once a year and stay at the K & P about every 3 or 4 years. The K & P is a wonderful and somewhere we'll continue to enjoy.
I love the K&P for the heritage that is maintained as well as the physical up-dates that are added without spoiling the unique features of the past! I am the second generation that has loved the K&P and walked the beaches and swung in the swings! Generations 3 and 4 of our family are fans of yours as well. My daughter even chose it as the site of her wedding reception...which was fabulous! I cannot wait to take my granddaughter (generation #4) to the hallowed beaches. Hope you will have some "special rates" so the baby can experience that same special feeling that we all have for the K&P!
It has been years since I've stayed on St. Simons Island. This was my first stay at The King and Prince. Everyone was so friendly and seemed to sincerely want our stay to be comfortable. The room was clean and bright and spacious. The view of the beach, ocean and pool area was great. Even though there was a conference going on, there were no problems with noise or crowding. It was nice to have a small area of beach pretty much to ourselves and it was so convenient to get to. We enjoyed our stay so much we stayed an extra night. Breakfast was great every morning. We'll definitely go back!
My family stayed at the King and Prince for a long weekend. My children were greeted at the front desk with crowns and were thrilled. They also loved the chocolates on the pillow! My husband and I were very impressed with the family atmosphere the resort provided. We hope to return again soon. The salmon I had at the Blue Dolphin was the best meal I had while on the Island. Keep up the good work!
I loved the Kuerig coffee makers and assortment of teas and coffees.
The entire hotel is very well maintained, appearance is excellent and has been kept to do date with modern conveniences, (new TVs, good/cold air conditioning, restaurants), pool side service was good, good location on the island, easy access to the beach and the views from our room were breath taking every morning.
The staff was very courteous. I couldn’t have asked for more. I was very impressed that a lady from the Restaurant walked me to my room because she saw that I was lost. She could have just given me directions but she took the time and effort to make sure I found my room. I really appreciated that. Thanks for a great stay.
Fabulous view. Wonderful accommodations. Very nice staff. Loved it as always!
The sheer presence of the hotel is elegance and grandeur. It immediately sets the mood for relaxation and pampering. I love staying at the K&P and hopefully will visit again very soon.
Staff: My husband and I recently spent from December 28 to January 1 at your hotel and would like you to know just how much we loved it! Your entire staff were so pleasant, especially the food and service was excellent. We look forward to staying with you often. We were always in love with St. Simons and now we love you too. Thanks!
We have enjoyed our stay immensely, as we have celebrated another wedding anniversary (44th) with you! Thank you for our welcoming basket of cheese, crackers, apples & Chocolate-perfect touch of hospitality. We look forward to our next visit with you!
Thank you King and Prince Staff for the Best vacation we have ever had! You made our 25th Anniversary one we will never forget! We are already planning a fall trip! The room, the staff, and the wonderful meals are all above and beyond anything we could have wished for. Thanks again.
Staff of the King and Prince,
We would like to thank you for the lovely basket of champagne and assorted goodies waiting for us in our room when we returned after a morning of shopping. What a wonderful surprise! How very thoughtful of you to remember our 65th anniversary with such a nice gift. We have enjoyed every minute of our time at the King and Prince. The staff have been outstanding, and everyone has made this occasion very special. Thank you.
Thank you so much for your southern hospitality. We’ve never been treated so kindly. Thanks for the chilled champagne and for making our anniversary a memorable one that will last forever.

My husband is from Georgia and he and his immediate family vacationed at the King and Prince when he was young . . . we returned most summers with his parents and siblings as a newly married couple, and through the years with new additions to the family - our three daughters. The resort is on the lovely island of St. Simon's is comfortably elegant, family friendly and provides activities for all - tennis, golf, workout room, beautiful pools, jacuzzis, fabulous food at the restaurants, and employees who are professional, personable and always willing to do everything they can to make a vacation exactly what a vacation should be - a time to relax, regenerate, and create special memories that last a lifetime.
