Impact Marriage Retreat
This Resort is so so wonderfully laid out, comfortable and inviting!! Beautiful lobby and very attentive and friendly staff. We had a wonderful suite that was very comfortable, nicely furnished, and very easy to relaxing. Though this is a property that began in the early 1900's, It is obvious the sense of pride the owner and managers have taken to beautify and update it constantly!

Scnickel, from TripAdvisor, says
We have been coming here for years for an annual meeting and the hotel keeps getting better. The renovation to the main lobby is outstanding. You know you are at the beach right away. The addition of the lobby bar is also great. It is a good place for colleagues to get together after a day of meetings.

Sheryl B, from TripAdvisor, says
We've been at the King & Prince for several business conventions, and we've never had a bad experience. The staff is so professional, friendly, and helpful. No matter which section of the resort we stay in, the rooms are beautifully furnished and so comfortable... We enjoyed the fitness center, the tennis courts, and the pool area. Everything is well maintained and taken care of. We would definitely recommend staying here for either business or pleasure.

It's a beautiful resort & location! The staff is top notch. The grounds were absolutely gorgeous & meticulous. Whether it would be for a vacation destination or if you're there for a meeting (which we were), you won't be disappointed. There are lots of little shops & great restaurants close by, too.

I've been staying here for the last five years for a conference. The accommodations are great as well as the service and beach access. Not walking distance to the downtown area but you can easily bike there if you want.

Larry M., from Guest Survey, says
Meeting and banquet services were outstanding...staff went overboard to make us feel at home during our meetings. Food and service was simply the best I have had in a very long time.

Sheila M., from Guest Survey, says
The King and Prince always works with me to ensure my associates attending the conference are well taken care of. The conference service manager's attention to detail and the professionalism displayed while working with them was greatly appreciated. The banquet staff always goes the extra mile to ensure my setup meets my expectations. Front desk associates and bellmen are greatly appreciated for all the help they give to ensure a pleasant arrival and departure of my group.

Karen S. via TripAdvisor, says
Our group was very pleased with our experience with the newly renovated King & Prince Beach Resort. I especially liked the new sitting area where the original 'hot tub' had been. The meeting rooms were comfortable for our 75-80 attendees. I did not hear any complaints from any of our attendees concerning their rooms. What a pleasure to be able to mix business with the pleasure of being with so many close friends, the networking that we share is invaluable! We will be back again next spring. Any day at the beach is refreshing for the soul!

I want to thank all of you for making my Naval Academy Group Outing a success. Please thank your staffs--William, Billie, Tony, Cole, and those names I forgot such as the Chef and the banquet manager and another server..
Golf was great--everyone enjoyed the course and the attention of the golf staff. Rick, that was a nice touch for you to come out and meet everyone. Thanks.
The Awards Dinner on Wednesday was outstanding!!!!!! The best I have had yet! The servers (Tony & Billie) and the bartender (William) were as attentive as they could be. Billie was great in helping me get my video working from my computer. Billie and Tony were above and beyond normal service expectations.
A few people are going to make positive comments in trip advisor so that is a testimonial to your service (I will also).
Again, thanks so much for all that you did--it is greatly appreciated and Wednesday evening culminated a great 4 days!
Best regards, Steve

Mindy, from TripAdvisor, says
Every year, my society has a conference hosted by the King & Prince. Last year, the hotel was in the middle of renovations. THIS year, everything was perfect. They replaced the indoor pool with a BEAUTIFUL new floor and modern furniture. I can't even express how much better the new "first impression" is now when you walk in the front doors. K&P offers a GREAT place for a conference and I'm so glad we have ours there every year. I've already made up my mind that I'll be going back this year with my children because my stay simply wasn't long enough.

Shana K., from guest letter, says
This was by far the best and most seamlessly run event I have ever planned and executed - all due to the amazing leadership, professionalism and consideration by each and every employee that I encountered.

Alberta H., from guest letter, says:
Julie, on behalf of our group, I want to thank you and your staff for the wonderful hospitality that was shown to us during our stay.
Everyone had a wonderful time and could not believe that such a place as the King and Prince existed in the state of Georgia. We spend so much time traveling to foreign countries that we miss the jewels in the good old USA.
I want to commend Kaitlin, Jamie and Bill for their professionalism and patience with me in the planning of our retreat.
We shall return! I'm going to suggest Valentine's Weekend in 2015 at our next meeting, but I believe our membership will not want to wait that long.

Paige M., from guest letter, says:
Thank you so very much for all of your assistance with our recent Cocktails and Croquet event. We appreciate all the cooperation and dedication exhibited by you and your staff in helping us put this event together. The setting was ideal, and the croquet courts received rave reviews from our guests. We also heard lots of positive comments regarding the bartenders and the food. In fact, we are already receiving inquiries about next year. Thanks again for everything and look forward to working with you again next year.

Sean C., from guest letter, says
Our attendees had a great time as always, and are already plotting their return next year! Your staff did a great job with planning and executing the event, and I was able to actually enjoy myself more than I was anticipating. Thank you again, and I'll see you next year!

Lorra L., from guest email, says
Our meeting would not be a success without the wonderful staff and great service provided by the King & Prince. We particularly want to thank those work throughout the year on planning with us and those like Gurkan and Billie who keep everything running smoothly on site. Your efforts make it possible for a small organization like ours to hold a fantastic event that our attendees want to come back to year after year.

Went for a meeting at the King and Prince. Very nice rooms. Customer service excellent, comparable to top line Marriotts. Food was also very good. Several nearby restaurants within 5 minute walking distance (Crab Trap, CrabDaddys, etc) were all very good. Bike rental location 1/10 mile away. Island is perfect for biking. Lighthouse area on SSI very nice. A good place to escape for a week or a weekend.

Stayed at the K&P for a conference, and was greeted by a warm, smiling face. She helped me get checked in, took care of arrangements, and got me on my way - quickly! The High Speed Internet - Wireless is fantastic, and fast. Hard to do in a historic building. No bad signal areas when there. Roamed with iPad. Views are always incredible, all the staff was very friendly, and our conference was a success thanks to the K&P. Great job, crew!!! We will be back next year!

Doug G., from Guest Letter, says
While our group was small you handled every detail and made us feel very welcome. I will be looking for other opportunities to host a meeting at the King & Prince. The resort received rave reviews from attendees and their spouses alike. We look forward to another visit.

Ken S., from Post-Conference Evaluation, says
It was probably the best outing our golf group has ever had. Julie Bell did a great job as did all the other service people we dealt with. We hope to return next year.

Ceilia, from TripAdvisor, says
I've been to the King and Prince in Sept. for the last two years and am going back this September. There is a conference that I attend yearly there but I consider it a vacation as well, taking my grown daughter along for a mother/daughter get away. The hotel is comfortable and well-kept and is in a fabulous location on a beautiful beach. It has two great pools, good food and welcoming staff.

Estelle G., from Guest Letter, says
I wanted to say "thank you" from the bottom of my heart for a wonderful experience at King and Prince. Everything went so smoothly and I am very grateful to the whole staff for making that possible. We couldn't have asked for better service. Your kindness and thoughtfulness were everything (and then some) that a visitor could ever wish for and I am very thankful to you. I just can't say enough good things about everyone other than you all were absolutely a joy. All of you helped us pull off this huge Board meeting beautifully and we truly appreciate everything.

Dean J., from Post-Conference Evaluation, says
As always, an excellent event. I received many comments from the attendees as to how impressed they were. The hotel, grounds and staff are excellent

Stephanie D., from Post Conference Evaluation
I am again impressed by all of the excellent preparation & follow-through. Well done!

Craig S, from Guest Letter
Your hotel, staff, food, service was excellent and I do mean excellent – so very nice and accommodating. The way our customers went on about the Saturday night meal was unreal. I enjoy dealing with professionals who are on their game and your team is. Thank you for everything.
We have has some great venues in the past , this may have topped them all.

We had a company-wide meeting at this property in November and it was a fantastic experience. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly from check-in, to the restaurant and our departure. They catered to every need. Our banquet rooms were well presented and clean. Our meals were wonderful. Our guest rooms could not have been better and the view was phenomenal. The hotel had everything we needed and more so we never had to leave the property. I would highly recommend this location to anyone traveling to St. Simons!

Anonymous, from TripAdvisor says:
I was at this facility for two nights and was overall impressed with the operations and the staff. We were in town for a conference so we utilized the meeting space, food and beverage as well as sleeping rooms. The meeting facilities were accommodating and comfortable, the food and beverage was great as well as were the food and beverage staff members. The room I had directly overlooked the ocean and it was a great view along with very comfortable surroundings on the interior of the room and public areas of the hotel.

Melanie D, from Meeting Planner Conference Evaluation says:
Jeremy (Banquet Captain) was exceptional to work with!

Dean M, from a Guest Letter says:

Please accept my sincere appreciation and thanks for a job well done this past weekend! Our 66th annual convention was a success, our report card a good one, and the members have indicated that they will want to return! What more can we ask?

Lisa M, from Guest Letter says:

I can't thank you enough for pulling together another successful fall board retreat! Especially this year, in my absence. It was so nice having such confidence in each of you to rest easy knowing that everything WOULD run smoothly whether I was there or not. I have heard nothing but wonderful things from our trustees and staff about the level of service they received during their stay. Thank you so much for taking care of my gang! You are the best in your field and I appreciate you all very much.

Paige, from TripAdvisor says:
The meeting rooms are always set up well, the staff is courteous and helpful, the food excellent. My hotel room faced the pools and the beach; I could hear the waves crashing on the rocks at night. The housekeeping staff made sure I had everything I needed.

Lynn T, from Post Conference Evaluation says:
Everyone at The King and Prince was outstanding!  I couldn’t have chosen a better venue.  Exceptional service and the ladies at check-in are the best.

Kirk P, from Post Conference Evaluation says:

One of my top two hotels in the world! Super service, food, staff, and property.  It was a breeze to plan and execute my meeting.  Hampton Club golf was even better than I remembered-Excellent!

Anonymous, from TripAdvisor says:

I was here attending a conference for work. I am a GM at a hotel and was attending a conference for my management company. This resort did an excellent job of providing exceptional service and food. The rooms were well appointed and exceeded my expectations for this property. I love the location. This is a great resort, you can tell that their team enjoys working at the resort.

Phyllis, from Guest Letter says:

I just wanted to write to thank you again for all your help during our conference.  You and your staff did such a wonderful job of helping us have a successful conference this year.  I appreciate you letting me mail next year's conference materials to the hotel so that I did not have to carry all that through two airports.  That made things so much easier for me.  Thank you.  Even though I lost my voice, I still think my presentation went well.  Everyone loved all the pictures.  The grad student lunch box bash, which was the only other thing I helped with this year, was a great success thanks to you all!  I loved the wraps--as did everyone!  And I was thrilled to find an orange in my box.  I really needed it.  Also, your staff did a great job of getting the Retreat Room
looking just right for us, even down to the last detail of having our flyer posted smartly outside the door to the Retreat Room.  This was a very nice touch.  All you did is so very much appreciated and since I am the planner for next year's conference in Asheville, I was noticing all the nice things you and your staff did.  I just want to say thank you,
again, for all of it.  Also, if you have any tips for a novice conference organizer--that's me—don’t fail to let me know.  I'm happy to receive all suggestions, advice, and all cautionary tales.

Judy P, from Trip Advisor says:

I have been organizing conferences (50 to 350 people) for 21 years and during that time I've worked with all kinds of venues including several that had earned the title "Conference Center". I can honestly say that the King and Prince is the best I've ever worked with. I give them a detailed schedule of what is happening, when and where, the food and equipment we will need, the times we need it, and I never have to worry about it again. They are consummate professionals and a delight to work with.

The location is beautiful, the rooms clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated, and their food is very tasty. The hotel is right on the water, with many rooms having a full view of the water. The grounds are beautifully maintained, so even if your room doesn't face the water, chances are, you're still going to have a nice view.
The hotel staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. On the rare occasion that I have experienced a difficulty or change in plans, it has been taken care of quickly and graciously.
It is truly a delightful place to visit - for business or for pleasure.

I stayed here for a conference and loved the location and the rooms. The beachfront location has gorgeous views. Even during our conference we could see the ocean from the Solarium Room. I had several nice walks on the beach at the end of the work day.
The room was very cozy and had nice linens and a super comfortable bed. The room was always clean and I had plenty of toiletries. Love the soaps.

Angela, from TripAdvisor says:

I just visited the King and Prince Resort for the weekend on business. Not only did we have the best time, but the accommodations for our meetings were excellent. The staff was always there to assist with anything we needed, The rooms were comfortable and clean, the food was superb, and you can't beat the views from anywhere on the resort. I received raving reviews from the golfers in my group and we all look forward to meeting there again next year.

I attended a conference at the site. The property was much superior to places I've stayed for conferences in the past. The location, style and upkeep of the property were spectacular.

The meeting staff, including Trina Sproat, Angela Hutchings, Jamie Pazur, Laurie Karagul did everything in their power to ensure our stay was perfect! Service staff at our meetings and our meals were extremely accommodating and available. They seemed to go the extra mile to ensure that all of our participants were pleased with their meal. The facilities, as always, were amazing. I cannot say enough about the King and Prince and have recommended it to many friends and family.

Anonymous, from Guest Evaluation says:

The accommodations were wonderful! Will highly recommend to others! Perfect! Excellent-especially the food; very good hotel; no issues. Thanks for including the meals. Saturday night’s dinner was probably the best banquet meal I’ve had in my life (and there are many!)

Wonderful experience!  Our group will definitely be returning. Thank you for everything!

I helped organize our first University of Tennessee Bioenergy Conference (Frontiers in Biorefining) at the King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort in October. This was hands down one of the most beautiful places on the island. The staff was fantastic!!!! They were all extremely helpful and worked with us on a lot of tid bits that arised while we were there. We had only positive remarks from our conference attendee's regarding the hotel, location, staff and food. The hotel is central to three airports which was very useful especially for foreign attendees. The food that was supplied by K&P was outstanding!! Also, the location of the hotel was great because you can walk to downtown, shops and restaurants easily. There are so many options on the island that you can do for fun and leisure as well as business purposes. I absolutely LOVE the King and Prince and am sooo looking forward to going back next year!!!! We stayed a few days after the conference to really enjoy the hotel accommodations and what the island had to offer.
