The Sonesta in Hilton Head is our favorite place to stay on the entire island. It is very clean, smells great and everyone is so friendly. The beds are the most comfortable out of any hotel we have stayed.

Wow this hotel was like a breath of fresh air. Everyone we meet was warm and courtesy. The rooms so clean and fresh. Loved it and so did my dog. The beachfront was great. The pool wonderful. So much to do there. I will definitely go back.

What a beautiful venue with acres of gardens, beautiful pools, immaculate buildings and a staff that was very attentive to our every need. Towels and personal cabanas overlooking the lagoon. Beach access at the edge of the pool area. White sandy, wide beaches. Food was excellent. The chocolate goodies in the lobby was amazing. Tropical paradise!

The hotel is in the 'Shipyard' district and a short walk to a superb wide beach. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are pretty basic but nice enough. (note: the ocean "view" is not much of a view owing to high trees, so don't expect a classic "Aaah!" moment) There were some minor housekeeping issues (like the... More

Can't say enough about our enjoyable stay at the Sonesta. We were there for four days golfing, and every day we looked forward to coming back to a clean, cool, comforting, and luxe environment. Special kudos to Shirene in Heywards: warmest and most attentive waitperson! (she remembered our names and beverage orders every morning; made us feel like we made... More

Stayed here for a girl's get away. Very nice accomodations. Rooms comfortable and nicely appointed. Customer service was very good as well. We had spa treatments scheduled, but due to a flood overnight from the rain, the spa was closed down. No big deal. When we came back to our room, they had lovely fruit baskets apologizing for the inconvenience.... More

My girlfriends and I just got back from a weekend girls trip at the Sonesta and we had a wonderful and relaxing time! We're all nurses looking for a quick getaway from work and we definitely got that much needed break. The pool and the beach are all very nice and our rooms were kept clean and comfortable. We especially... More

We had a very nice 4-day stay at the Sonesta. It was a very nice, newly renovated property. It was very nicely landscaped and our standard king room was spacious. The bed was among the most comfortable hotel beds we've ever slept on, the beach was very nice, and their were many comfortable places to relax spread throughout the property... More

We had a very nice three days at the Sonesta the first week of October. We were going to stay at Sea Pines, but changed our minds at the last minute to save a little bit of money. I would definitely recommend the Sonesta, and would stay there again if I go back to Hilton Head. The room was comfortable... More

This is a great resort in Shipyard Plantation which is a great location for Hilton Head. This resort has changed names several times with Sonesta being the latest. All facilities have been renovated with beautiful and comfortable rooms. Room service is excellent but expensive, as you would expect. I would bid on line for this resort and you will save... More
