“Great blend of high end and laid back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

I really enjoyed the King and Prince. The property is very nice. We stayed in the historic building. The customer service is excellent. Sometimes when I stay in high-end hotels, I start to feel like I don't belong there. The King and Prince really does a good job of combining the laid-back beach atmosphere with excellent service. The food in the restaurant and from room service was mostly good. I didn't love everything I had, but I didn't hate anything. The only thing that wasn't great? I was attending a conference and the catering for the conference wasn't great. At our two parties, there were no fruits or veggies. NONE! Just a lot of fried stuff --which was tasty, but not so healthy. I will definitely try to visit this hotel again.

the renovations are wonderful, but the hotel really needs to look at staffing. the restaurant is not up to par from a server perspective-- especially for the day shift.

the bar area is well done and we enjoyed the drink variety.

Just back from a 3 night stay. We've never been to SSI & thought we'd give it a try. I called the hotel & got a better rate than what was on line. This property did not disappoint! It's a historic hotel that was in great shape. The lobby/bar area is beautiful with a great view of the ocean. We requested early check in & when we got there at noon our room was ready. It was located in the historic building which was a wonderful location to the restaurant, pool & beach. The room was very spacious & nicely appointed with a large bathroom. We didn't know that we'd need to bring our own chairs to sit on the beach so ended up renting 2 chairs & umbrella through the beach service. Handy to have billed to our room. Next time we'll save the $$ & bring our own chairs. It's a great location overall. You can walk a couple of blocks to some nearby restaurants or take a short drive to the pier area. Overall we loved our stay & will absolutely be back to the K&P!

The newly refreshed King and Prince is must see if only for drinks and dinner in the new Echo bar and dining room. We had the pleasure to stay for our anniversary in one of the newly redone oceanfront rooms in the historic building. Gorgeous view from our balcony. Staff was very attentive without being obtrusive. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Although pricey, shop for specials. We were able to save substantially by checking the internet per...

We stayed in one of the Oceanfront rooms in the Oceanfront building. The room was spacious, clean and perfectly located to enjoy the sights and sounds of the beach. Since the major renovation was undertaken the main building has a hugely different design and is a lot more functional. The staff was attentive and accommodating and handled every request quickly and with a smile. Meals in the Echo dining room were superb and service at the bar was a cut above. The real gem was our round of golf at the K&P course on the north end of the island. Staff welcomed us like we were old, familiar members. The course itself is challenging but gorgeous. We will definitely be going back to both the hotel and the course.

Recently spend several nights - first night in an ocean front Cabana Room and two nights in a fourth floor Oceanfront room. The Cabana Room was 'very tight' and also very damp. it felt like the air handler was pumping in more moisture than it was removing. There was also noticable rust on metal fixtures - definitely not worth the $329 rate. The 4th floor Oceanfront room had a VERY noticable musty smell as soon as we opened the door and only disappeared when the sliding door to the balcony was left open. Anytime the room was shut up, the musty smell was very obvious when we returned. Bathroom was very small and everything was extemely 'dated'. The bed pillows are a 'joke' for a Beach and Golf Resort.

The common areas - eating and pool, were very well kept. I can't say I like the 'modern' look to the lobby, bar, conversational area and ECHO - their new restaurant, but it's well appointed and the food was worth the cost. Bar prices were high. . .$3.00+ for a Coke makes a run to the local convenience store the best option.

Stayed here with small children on the south side in a 2 bedroom villa....The location is wonderful- right on the beach. Also my children loved the various pools- one ideal for babies, the others great for the entire family. Staff was very accomodating and friendly...plenty of activites close by but we did not want to leave the resort. We will be back.
