“Timeless Memories”
Reviewed August 22, 2010

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.

Ok, so let's start with the pros. It's on the beach which is extremely convenient. Please keep in mind that you will need to check the daily tide schedule to know what times you can enjoy it. We were up very early each morning and enjoyed the water from 6:30am to around 9:30am each day. It gets really hot after that and we prefer to be out of the water by then. The hotel grounds is well maintained. So now for the cons, the hotel is outdated. I understand that it is historic but that doesn't mean that they can't perform much needed upkeep to the inside and the guest rooms. The carpet is worn and constantly emits a wet dog smell. We stayed in the historic building and I will say our room was a decent size (partial ocean view - and when they say partial, they mean partial). We were there for five days and the running joke between my husband and I was to check each morning for the dirty kleenex that was at the top of the stairs. It never moved. We were going to take a picture each day and give to the staff; but thought it would be much better served by letting the trip advisor community know about it. So basically, there was much to be desired in the cleanliness department. The hallways never looked like they were vacuumed. The only reason to be here was the proximity to the beach. We didn't eat at the restaurants at any time. We didn't go to the spa, the building looked horrible and if I am going to pay money for a spa, then I expect a luxurious environment and experience. If you choose to stay here for the beach please just be aware of the other MAJOR short-comings.

My wife and I loved the King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort! We usually get home sick while on vacation but the King and Prince was just so relaxing that we didn't miss home at all! Totally worth the cost!

We stayed in a two bedroom suite right on the beach; there was a very clean and fun pool. The suite could use some updating; the kitchen and bathrooms had new tile and fixtures but everything else in the suite was from the 1990's. We had a wonderful time except the beach area in front of the hotel is very small and at high tide, there is no beach at all. We had a very limited time period that we could even walk on the beach because their was no beach most of the time.

My boyfriend and I have had the pleasure of visiting the King and Prince on St. Simons Island twice this summer for weekend get aways. Words are hard to express how much we enjoy this property. The Staff, the pool, the rooms, the oceanview and the BREAKFAST all are steps above the rest. Thank you King and Prince for being our little slice of heaven?

Had the pleasure of staying at the King and Prince for our 35 year high school reunion. And in addition to enjoying the facilities I worked with the staff to coordinate the event. The staff was professional and hard working. No detail was ignored. Request were dealt with immediately. I also had my family with me and my young adult children enjoyed the Resort as much as our group did. They too said they would return. Best kept secret in St. Simon's Island, Georgia.

We stayed for a week in the Villas. The living space was clean and large, but the finishes were all quite dated. There was quite a bit of wear and tear on the appliances, wall coverings, doors and windows. The kids really enjoyed the pools, and we just timed our beach outings to when the tide was low. At that time, the beach was great -- there was no seaweed or rocks underfoot, although jelly fish were seen (and felt) occasionally. Room service was quite slow (over an hour) and housekeeping varied their schedule (sometime 9 am, sometimes 1 or later) so we never knew when to expect the clean up. Service at the pool side bar and grill was excellent though. Very quick and friendly staff.
