Great hotel. Obvious that this was an old hotel that has been completely renovated. Great modern touches, service excellent, and nice location near the beach. The General Manager was very responsive and even made a dinner recommendation for us.

I was there in mid-September for a conference. I have stayed at many hotels and resorts in the Hilton Head area over the last 20 years. This is a great facility. Very clean, great amenities. Once you check in, there is no reason to leave the resort unless you want to have them arrange a golf or fishing outing. Right... More

And our second visit was as nice and rewarding as our first. Great location, great folks to spend some time with and the staff is amazing. Very clean and everyone seems to be so concern about your well being.

We spent 3 days here. We have been to Hilton Head many times, but never to this hotel. We chose it because of a deal through a travel website. The hotel is in a very convenient location, within biking distance of restaurants and shops. The beach is beautiful. The hotel is recently renovated. Our room was clean and spacious. My... More

We loved the beautiful room, landscaping, and location. The burgers and shrimp tacos were awesome. Was disappointed that the kids club didn't operate through the end of summer and poolside drinks were expensive ($10-$14). All in all, we had a great time at the beach, pool, and relaxing around the resort.

The Sonesta is a good looking, upscale resort in a very quiet part of Hilton Heads. The grounds are well kept, tropical style, with beautiful bushes and some nice birds. The beach is gorgeous and goes on for miles. The resort is kids' friendly.

The Sonesta rests on the sandy beach of Hilton Head Island where many guests enjoy bike riding, jogging or simply taking a stroll along the beautiful ocean. We appreciate the pictures... More

I splurged on this pricy hotel because it has such a high rating. But after staying, I don't know why. When I've stayed at similarly-priced places before, I've experienced top-notch service and amenities in all areas ... well, you won't get that here. What is good here: large room size, decent towels, proximity to beach, well-kept but crowded pool, fridge... More

This resort is a great place to relax and enjoy the beach at Hilton Head. We had a King Room facing the inland marsh and it was well appointed and very comfortable. We used a room deal acquired at Zoo Travel that saved 30%. The food in the restaurant was good and not overly priced. We only eat Breakfast and... More

Sonesta is located in a golf resort community on the beach. The property is attractive, well maintained, clean and loaded with amenities. It is a great choice for families with plenty to do for all. The pool area is quite attractive with the ocean just beyond. The rooms are reasonably priced, spacious, and well decorated. Parking is ample and convenient.... More

Great location, great hotel, great amenities! This hotel does a lot RIGHT! The room was spacious, well decorated, and the property was beautiful. The only thing missing was a microwave to re-heat my morning coffee!
