“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Disappointed in our partial ocean view 2BR rental villa. Although we received an early check-in, we requested an upper floor unit and we were given the ground floor. We requested down free pillows and none was available. While our villa was clean, the furnishings were very old and furniture worn. It appears the unit had not been remodeled or updated since it was built. The sofa, chairs, and beds were uncomfortable and the toilet ran all night. Additionally, construction began early in the morning and lasted through the day on a unit two doors down. Not pleasant or relaxing to listen to drills and tile saws all day.The wireless internet was also sporadic and did not work in either of the two bedrooms. Our partial ocean view was not worth the money since we were on the ground floor and had to look past the south villa pool to see the ocean.The pool and hot tub were not heated and we had to use the main pool. It also appeared to be off season at the King and Prince - other than paying $5 for a can of tennis balls and renting tennis racquets, there was nothing else to do for our family of four. One would think that with the newly remodeled and renovated hotel lobby that the rest of the hotel would have the same luxurious accommodations and amenities, they did not and we will not return.

Room Tip: Inquire if there are updated and renovated rooms before making a reservation. Be warned that the coa...

From check-in to check-out everything was perfect. Daniel greeted us with a big smile as he took our bags to the room. Check-in was done in seconds and then the Wow of the beautiful lobby, fire place and bar. As we wound through the 150 guests attending a cocktail reception of the local Chamber of Commerce, we even saw someone we knew. The room was another WOW-direct ocean front with the sound of the waves breaking was so romantic. Dinner in the King and Prince's new restaurant-ECHO (open only 12 days) interesting menu, wonderful meal that was perfectly served by our waiter, Peter, who also filled us in on the local community. Room service breakfast was exactly on time, hot (not warm) food and oh so good. All in all, a perfect stay!!

Room Tip: Ocean front room in the historic portion of the hotel were just perfect.

I was a mid-week 3 day get-away for a mom and her two adult daughters During the last week of March, the weather was a bit chilly and windy, but the sun was shining bright.

Upon arrival at the main doors, we noticed a bellman's stand, but no help was available. 3 ladies had several heavy bags and no one offered to help with our luggage. Carts for the "do it yourself-ers" were no where to be found - although we did see one during our stay.

Check-in staff was friendly and allowed an early check-in. We were given an upgrade to Ocean Front - 4th floor. The room was comfortable, clean, and well appointed. Mattresses were comfortable and several pillow options were available. The ocean view was nice, but required looking past the pool area. On a positive side, the pool area is very nice!!

We wanted to do Afternoon Coffee. The resort offers no such amenity - unless you want plain coffee.

For history buffs, the historical side of the resort is very interesting. Overall, I think you will be pleased with The King and Prince.

Saint Simons Island is a relaxed area of Coastal Georgia which hasn't turned into a tourist trap. The island's beauty is unparalleled. I highly recommend you visit the area and choose The King and Prince for your accommodations.

Room Tip: The Ocean View Building is nice, but rooms open to the outside.

A fantastic resort. It is older, so you have to keep that in mind. We had an oceanfront view in the historic building. Beautiful sunrises! The staff was very customer oriented and very polite. Helpful with reservations and shuttles to golf. K&P is in a great location and we were able to do without the car for days. We could walk to bike rental, several restaurants, up & down the beach, the lighthouse & pier. We look forward to going back again!!

Room Tip: Go for the oceanview and enjoy the sunrise!

I took my family and stayed at King and Prince as a part of a bigger trip. We stayed at one of the three bedroom villas. Our three days there were the best part of our trip- the villa was the perfect choice for our family, it gave us space and a homey feel with its separate bedrooms, kitchen, living room and common dining area. The grounds and beach view were beautiful, and the overall ambience of St Simon's island just lent the perfect backdrop for this beautiful facility. What a treasure.

Room Tip: Villa for a family with kids
