My wife and I stayed there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Hotel was fantastic! Very modern, ultra clean, easily accessible. Check-in was the easiest of any hotel anywhere with extremely friendly staff. Could not have been better.

Came here for a birthday weekend for my wife and had a good time. Positives: Very pretty resort. Big, spacious room with a wonderful view. Lovely grounds with a very nice beach access. Friendly, helpful staff for the most part. Nice little touches, like the flavored water at the entrance and the cider and cookies one evening. Arum SPA was... More

Most people seem to do timeshares on HHI but we were traveling with small children in late August and had never been to HHI before and thought a hotel would be a better bet/known quantity. We wanted a pool (Sonesta's is lovely, has a huge zero entry shallow area great for little kids) and direct beach access (Sonesta is one... More

We decided to take advantage of a nice rate at the Sonesta. The hotel is located in a nice well populated area, well kept grounds, and lots of space for bikes and families. Walking into the hotel, the lobby is quite nice and the central highlight in the off season being the bar. There was a smooth check in and... More

Traveled to HH for a 3 night visit in September and first timer at this resort. Location is excellent with miles of ocean beach to explore. All restaurant recommendations were as promised. The concierge desk made last minute reservations for tee times at Shipyard, many thanks for that. Rooms, service and food were great.

My family of 5, including ages 8, 5, and 1 1/2 vacationed during the 4th of July week at Sonesta in Hilton Head. I'll give a brief run down of the resort. The resort itself sits off of the ocean, although it is oceanfront, you can't see the ocean from most of the rooms or the pool area. I knew... More

Our stay was in December but with beautiful weather it was wonderful. The hotel is excellent. Room very well done and housekeeping service excellent. Breakfast didn't meet expectations, mainly in service, but it was OK. During our stay there were maybe 20 cars in the parking lot and we saw no more than 15 people in the lobby at one... More

We booked this room for a weekend getaway based on pricing and location. The resort itself is very nice - one of the pools is heated, grounds are well maintained, and it is just a short walk to the beach. Our room was spacious and very quiet. Overall, we were very happy with the hotel. A couple of things that... More

I think that we were very excited when we decided to spend labor day weekend at Sonesta in HHI. The resort had a deal going on back then and it was affordable for us. We enjoyed our room, the service and the resort itself. I like the orange color that they have it as their "official" color. The swimming pool... More

My wife and I purchased a Travel Zoo voucher for this resort. I was not sure the service we would receive due to it was a discounted room. We were treated with the Best Service and Love this Hotel.
