Our stay at the Sonnesta was incredible! We were upgraded to a room here from a Living Social certificate and were amazed! Only complaint was parking shortage (too many valet spots) and no cart racks for luggage without a bellman helping you.

PROS: Updated clean rooms with comfortable beds, quiet a/c, balcony, large TV, large chair converted to a pull-out twin bed, brought extra towels and blanket when asked, open and airy lobby with live music weekend nights, coolest...

A scheduled vacation to the Caribbean was cancelled at the last minute, so we needed someplace to getaway to on short notice. Sonesta Resort had availability - so we decided to head to Hilton Head. The staff is great, the amenities are great and the location (access to the beach) is awesome. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely look... More

This resort definitely exceeded our expectations...It has a great pool, bar & beach area that is family friendly and very secluded. Go visit Steve at the pool bar & he will take care of you! Will be back!

Our recent stay at the Sonesta Resort on Hilton Head was great. This moderate sized resort is staffed with friendly, helpful employees from the management through the room technicians. The room was clean and comfortable as were the grounds. Only a short walk to the beach where you can rent umbrellas and chairs (recommended at $32/day for 2 chairs plus... More

Well-trained staff & well-appointed lobby and guest rooms. The lobby sparkles and has tastefully decorated, comfortable sitting areas for couples, families and singles alike. Food was nicely presented. Also, menus had variety.

We've stayed at lots of comparable hotels but this was the best value by far. Many friends stay in condos throughout Hilton Head but they have to drive to get... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. The stay could not have been any better. Room was impressive. Staff and service was as good as it gets. Brittany waited on us in the restaurant and I have never had a more helpful server anywhere. The whole experience was over the top.

We spent a week at the resort and had a wonderful time. It can be difficult to keep teenage boys happy but the resort had plenty to do. Rent the bikes, they are a blast on the beach. The room and the resort were both very well done. The staff was very courteous and genuinely seemed to care. I would... More
