Hellooo!! So my husband and I on a hitch decided to go to Hilton Head Island,SC. And we got this resort through hotwire. Man, that website never disappoints.

I had a three night stay at the Sonesta, and was very happy with their facilities. Everything was very clean and well-kept. The beach is steps away from the resort and it was a nice walk getting down there. The pool area looked great, but it was generally full of small kids, or college kids hitting up the bar, so...

Cannot say enough good things about the Sonesta. Mollie, Front Desk Manager, goes above and beyond in all she does. Needed to book a second room at last minute for three days and she made it happen. Sent wine and cheese to the room as we were celebrating birthdays. Valets are such gentlemen, always smiling and greeting you every time... More

This is the second time we stayed at this location, but the first time was when it was owned by Crown Plaza. The hotel went through a massive renovation under Sonesta and the result was fantastic. We stayed for 7 nights and enjoyed our visit tremendously. We ate at the hotel's fine dining restaurant as well as at the pool... More

My husband and I stayed here over the weekend, and we were very impressed! We had an ocean view room on the 5th floor (top floor). The room was clean and the décor was tasteful. They had a big stone floor shower with open door glass. Huge Samsung TV and the bed comfortable and fluffy, though the pillows were a... More

This is a stunningly remodeled property on Hilton Head Island. This was our first time staying at the Sonesta and we will stay there again. The hotel was kept meticulously clean in all the common areas. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable. Most important the bed was fabulous! The bathroom was spacious and decorated as you would expect a... More

Second visit to the Sonesta HHI and this time was as good as the first. Lots of activities going on for kids and the hotel facilities are wonderful. Location on the island is perfect as you are close to everything and can easily ride bikes to all the locations. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful looking... More

We had a great experience at Sonesta Resort. The staff was very friendly and offered great customer service. We rented bikes for a couple of days. It was fun to take off in the morning for a ride, have lunch and then come back for a relaxing time around the pool. We even napped in the nice bed areas around... More
