What a great find this resort was. The friendliness of the staff is unmatched. Our room was impeccably cleanable the view from the patio was heavenly. We will definitely be back to this resort. Kudos to the company in hiring topnotch team members.

My husband and I recently had a long weekend away at Sonesta Resort in Hilton Head based on good reviews and photos. Overall, the design was updated with a sleek and contemporary atmosphere. The rooms were well done too - especially the lighting and countertop in the bathroom. The staff were friendly and professional, and access to the beach was... More

Very nice family friendly resort located right on the beach. The room was very clean and the staff was extremely friendly. The pool area is very well maintained and the bartenders at the pool bar were great and know a lot about the local area. Overall it was a great stay.

We stayed here for our 25th Anniversary and were treated like royalty: upgraded rooms, champagne and strawberries waiting for us. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive. This may be in part because the hotel was only at 9% capacity on one night of our stay. It was like having personal staff. We had a great view of the pool,... More

What makes a good trade convention? Good planning, speakers, location, the facility (food and accommodations), helpful and courteous staff. All these things made for a memorable five days at the Sonesta Resort on Hilton Head Island, SC, where the Professional Tennis Registry held its annual Symposium again this year. I can't even begin to list all the amenities at this... More

This hotel was once a Mariott and I remember it from many years back. It amazed me how the Sonesta company has kept this hotel looking new , clean and welcoming. Our room was overlooking a tree lined parking area but still pretty with the big trees and plantings. We ate food at happy hour and the hamburger is a... More

Spent three days in February at the Sonesta and could not have enjoyed it better. The food was out of this world, service wonderful, proximity to the beach outstanding and as clean a property as anywhere I have stayed in a long time. Nice touches included a Kuerig coffee maker in the room with regular, decaf and English breakfast tea.... More

The hotel is very clean, and it was right on the beach. The breakfast buffet was great!!! had many choices to delight any appetite. The pool did get crowded during the afternoon hours. The room was very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed our stay.

My husband planned a surprise weekend trip to Hilton Head. We abruptly left our previous hotel around 11pm, with our toddler daughter, because the last place was THAT bad and we could not stay any longer. We frantically searched on our phones for another place and drove to check out Sonesta. It looked beautiful but very busy as an event... More
