Hotel is pleasant. Good location near the beach. Nice large room and well equipped. Nice public areas. 2 complaints - 1. in a nearly empty hotel (only 10 people booking in that day in a hotel with 374 rooms, we were given a room as far away from reception as possible with a poor view of the parking lot -...

I spent 2 weeks at the Hilton Head Island Sonesta for business purposes and they exceeded my expectation. Being there for two weeks, they made sure that every need was met both professionally with my meetings and personally with my comfort. I highly recommend the Sonesta, the resort is beautiful and convenient to everything.

This was a great experience from the start. The front desk staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and large, the beds were very comfy, the grounds were beautiful, and the beach was very close. The only complaint I had was with the noise in the halls early in the morning and late in the evening (occasional loud conversations... More

I traveled to Hilton Head on business, from Charleston, SC. This property is absolutely stunning and the customer service was stellar. While I was there, I had the opportunity to experience the Spa- Arum Spa. I was welcomed in by the Spa Director, who was extremely warm and inviting. They use Pevonia Skin Care, which is well known and very... More

Great weekend from start to finish. Our room overlooked the beautiful pool and garden area from our balcony. Nice large comfortable beds and motion sensor night lights were nice additions. Breakfast buffet was very nice and a good value.

From the time you drive up the hotel sets the tone of a great impression. The check-in was prompt & friendly. The rooms are large & well appointed. Very comfortable beds also. Our room overlooked the pool & garden area that had a balcony. Great location on Hilton Head.

I stayed just one night having found this hotel last year, staff were very friendly, breakfast buffet was a delightful feast, I would definitely stay here again and already recommended it to a friend who changed her plans from the less impressive marriott. Great beach location is the icing on the cake

Spent a week at the Sonesta for a conference. I had a spectacular time. The resort is well maintained and is obviously cared for by staff. Had no issues with check-in/check-out. The bar staff, especially Rich!, take good care of the patrons. Wasn't terribly impressed with food/menu options, but there were plenty of local restaurants to visit. The bell hop... More

We were booked into this resort hotel by Hotwire, after we found we had an extra night to fill while in Georgia. I have used Hotwire for late hotel reservations and have never been disappointed.

My husband and I went to this resort in August 2014 for an extended weekend. When we first arrived, we spoke with Joanne Banks at the front desk and she was really great- really helpful and nice.
