My family has spent many years vacationing at the King & Prince and had come to expect only the best in service and accommodations from them. Of course there have been some issues here and there but our concerns were promptly handled and corrected. We couldn't have had a more beautiful and meaningful wedding!
The hotels wedding coordinators, Ruth Driggs and Scarlett Starr were exceptional in their assistance and handling of all of our wedding details. Everything went as planned with no issues and the food was delicious and service from the buffet staff was very professional. I only wish I had brought a couple of food containers to pack up some of the delicious food that was left to take back to our condo. If I had any complaint it would be that they do not let you take the leftover food that you've paid for. I think they should waive that for those that are staying in a condo. I understand they don't want it in a regular hotel room.
Our room block coordinator Kaitlin Routh was always helpful and the hotel did a great job accommodating all of our guests, especially our large McGee family. Once our guests saw how lovely the hotel and the island was they requested to stay an extra day or two during their check in. The front desk staff graciously accommodated their last minute requests doing some quick rearranging of room assignments. The hotel manager also did a nice follow up to our wedding a few days later to handle a small issue that occured during our stay. No one expects anything to be perfect, just good responsive service to handle things that do arise.
The hotel has just finished a beautiful remodel of it's lobby area which is so much better for guests to relax in when they wanted a break from wedding activities. Their new in house restaurant "Echo" (which is separate from the catering) still has a lot of kinks to work out regarding prompt service and proper food prep and proportions in line with prices (too high) as they were only open about a week or so before our wedding weekend. The food is quite tasty though and we had no issues with breakfast at all. The restaurant is very pretty with a full view of the water.
I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding or any event. The location is gorgeous right on the beach and has an old southern luxury appeal. My family will continue to visit the area and enjoy a stay here in the future.
good food and service
I would not recommend having your wedding at the King and Prince Resort!I had both my ceremony and reception at the resort in July of 2014, and I received horrifying customer service and had a terrible experience. In summary, it is clear to me this hotel has no concept of true customer service or responsibility. Needless to say, on one of the biggest days of my life I was highly let down because of the King and Prince, and will never get back what they took from me. My guests will always remember the security forcing everyone to leave the reception with no explanation for what was happening. The King and Prince took what was supposed to be a happy and memorable day, and made it into an incredibly embarrassing and sad incident. Here is a list of items that happened to justify my harsh but true statements: The person responsible for my event was titled, “Catering & Conference Service Manager”. After I put down my deposit, I was re-assigned to a new manager. During our wedding tasting the new manager provided unclear responses and was unable to answer several critical questions. During our wedding tasting catering manager told us she could help with coordination activities and setup of the reception; however, one week before my wedding she stated that the King and Prince did not provide “Coordinator” services. We were only allowed a few hours prior to ceremony start to setup the reception.On the day of my family arrived promptly at 9:00AM to setup the arch for our outside ceremony; however, the catering manager responsible for my event didn’t come in until 1:00PM and no one was available to show them where to setup.
I provided the catering manager a specific seating chart that included table numbers and attendees. My parents were assigned to table 1 and my husband’s parents were assigned to table 2. The catering manager responsible for my event put the number 2 table identifier in the very back corner of the room. My husbands parents were seated in the back corner of the room! When asked about this, the catering manager said she typically makes it a priority to go over the seating chart with clients, but she overlooked this for my wedding. I was told (via saved emails) our appetizers would be butler passed. When I went to look at the reception on the day of my wedding I noticed heating stations that were setup and asked what they were for. The catering manager said she forgot. Probably the worst thing that happened at my wedding is that hotel guests staying at the King and Prince kept coming over to my private event. These hotel guests were not invited or a part of my wedding; however, they were drinking at the King and Prince hotel bar and chose to cause problems by continuing to walk into my event and even use my photo booth. One of the men even wrote profanity in my guest book. The King and Prince security did nothing, and were not available to keep the King and Prince hotel guests out of my event. An altercation occurred in the reception area of the King and Prince hotel near the fireplace (NOT the area of my event). The police were called, and king and prince security finally got involved. Even though the individuals responsible for the fight were NOT related to my event, and the fight did NOT occur at my event, the head of security guard walked into my reception and made the DJ stop the music. My event was terminated early, and all my guests were forced to leave. Other incidents happened, but my character limitation is up!
The King and Prince was really there every step of the way to make sure that my day went as I wanted. It is a beautiful location and their priced fairly. I loved the flexibility and kindness of the staff. They helped me enjoy the wedding of my dreams.
I am so happy we chose the King & Price, our wedding coordinator Scarlett was phenomenal, the place was beyond amazing and the cost was fair. Great value and perfect place
The King and Prince Beach Resort is the perfect location for a fairytale wedding! The staff is amazing and will make your wildest dreams come true! I am from Portland, OR, so obviously, this was a destination wedding. The staff made it so simple to plan, and set up tastings and tours the one weekend I had available without any hesitation.
The wedding weekend was perfect! I came in on a Thursday and only had to have one small 15 minute meeting to square away the final details! I am so blessed to have had the perfect wedding!
If you want the perfect beach wedding, I fully recommend The King and Prince Beach Resort!
We had the governor suite. IMO the best suite that overlooks the beach. You can sleep peacefully to the waves at night and have the ocean breeze fill your bedroom without any sand! They had free complimentary breakfast, just make sure you tell them up front before checking in how many guests you have. The Friday night seafood buffet was stunning!
Everything about this place and our stay was perfect!
Thank you King and Prince Beach Resort!
the king and prince was our location for the reception. The planning process was flawless but the actual reception... far from. They let strangers eat our food before we got up there. The security team was rude and approached me (keep in mind i'm the bride here) about outside alcohol. I should have been the last person approached with any problems that day. The outside alcohol came from the strangers the let come in. My aunt stayed there and had money stolen out of her room. Even after lots of contact, they failed to do anything to remedy the situation. Don't book here for your reception.
I enjoyed this venue because the ballroom was large enough for everyone to spread out and the food is really good. I had the ceremony outside on the oceanfront lawn and it was really windy that day so the flowers and my viel were blowing everwhere. It was pretty, but the location to where everyone walks out from was very unorganized. I also didn't think the customer service was very good on the banquet side of things for the amount of money we paid to have it there. Also I was not impressed with the rooms, they were very old and did not have very many amentities. I had to send someone to the bar every 5 minutes to get me a glass of ice water. No water in the rooms at all. I expected it overall to be nicer for the money we spent, but it turned out really pretty and we had a lot of fun. They let the DJ go until 12am in the ballroom.
This hotel was georgous & we really enjoyed our time there. Giving itineraries less star because their panoramic view of the ocean is really a sliding door and a very small window. Just wasn't what we expected for the price & description.
We hosted our wedding reception at the King & Prince. We worked with Scarlett and Anne and they made our day perfect! Every little detail was taken care of and I didn't have to worry about anything. Additionally, our guests couldn't stop raving about the food - it was so delicious!
Furthermore, we reserved a block of rooms for our guests at the King & Prince. Our guests enjoyed the resort immensely. Plenty of things to do on the resort and close enough to walk to yummy restaurants.
I worked very closely with Scarlett and the King and Prince and I couldn't have asked for a sweeter person to work with. She was so accommodating and made sure nothing went wrong. She was there from the beginning and was there for the wedding to make sure everything was perfect. The venue itself was spectacular and breathtaking. It's right next to the water and just a stunning place to get married. It's a little pricey, but I think it was totally worth it.
I had my reception held at the King and the Prince and they were wonderful. I didn't have to worry about a thing! Everything was set up perfectly. They put my centerpieces down, set up the guest book table, favor table and groom's cake. During the wedding, the servers waited on us hand and foot. I never wanted for anything. It was a beautiful venue and the service was spectacular!
