We have being going to the Embassy Suites @ Kingston Plantation for three consecutive years. We always go in July, usually during a conference week for my husband. It's a perfect place for kids. We have 4 sons and we go from the pools to the beach to the water park. They have a dj and bands by the pool areas and an outdoor cafe and bar with optional chairside waiter service. It's VERY pricey. They charge for EVERYTHING- daily parking, daily internet. A burger and fries is about $10. Icees are about $3-$4 and cocktails are $12-ish. The plus is that you can use any pool or cafe on the complex and my children are happy staying on the property all day and evening. They never want to leave.
I like that the outlets and other takeout food options are only about 1 mile down the road. I can sneak out shopping while dad plays on the beach with the kids.
They have a coin operated washer and dryer on the pool level. I have been known to do a load of kids laundry while sitting at the pool.
The staff has always been helpful and friendly. I always request the 3rd or 4th floor so we can take the stairs. Its quicker than waiting for one of only three elevators. I'm certain that we'll be returning this July again. We LOVE to stay over July 4th if we can. The fireworks display over the beach looks awesome from the balcony of the room.
