This is a jewel among the resorts on the island. Our family was very happy with the accommodations. The staff was superb and so helpful. The location of the hotel was minutes from all of our activities. This resort is definitely a keeper!

I visited the hotel on a business trip, attending a conference. I had a lot of expectations since this was my first visit to Hilton Head Island and a Sonesta Resort. I was AMAZED by the service, friendliness of the staff, etc. I wish I could remember all the staff members who deserve recognition for their service, but I can... More

Had a wonderful time. Front desk service was great! Room was so nice and it was very quiet. I would go back. Special thanks to Molly at the front desk who arranged transportation and whatever we needed!

For twenty years our family stayed at the Crowne Plaza on Hilton Head. We learned 18 months ago that the Sonesta group had purchased the property and planned a major renovation. The hotel re-opened in the spring of 2013 and the transformation was just amazing. The hotel is simply beautiful. The color schemes are warm, inviting and very contemporary. The... More

This hotel is just wonderful. It is right in the beach, very clean, and very friendly staff. The resort itself isn't huge, so you don't have to worry about a million people everywhere you go. The only drawback I would say (and the reason I gave it four stars) is the price. While the hotel is nice, it isn't exquisite.... More

We stayed at the resort for 3 wonderful nights. The front desk staff was very efficient with checking us in. Our room was very spacious and very clean. Susan from Human Resources showed us around to highlight the changes from renovations. Anca was amazing at providing us any information we needed and helping us book a cab and even made... More

The Sonesta Hotel is located in the Shipyard Plantation. It has recently been remodeled and the new decor is pleasant and contemporary. At the entry guard gate you will be given a temporary car pass, and then receive a hotel car pass upon check in. Self parking is free, but Valet is available if needed. The hotel is on a... More

The Sonesta Resort-Hilton Head Island provides a great means to get away from the hustle and bustle of business and everyday life. The property is beautiful (on the beach), the staff is energetic, friendly and very accomodating and makes you feel special as soon as you walk into the lobby. The rooms are fresh, clean, comfortable and great for sleeping.... More

If you are looking at Hilton Head (and you should), this hotel has it all. Gorgeous Hotel, Fantastic Service, beautiful setting. It is immaculate from top to bottom and close to everything on the island. Really good setup for lounging around the pool, and the beach is right there, too.

It's my second time here - place is great. Wonderful rooms and hotel. Beds are very comfortable - and staff is very accommodating. Seacrest restaurant is outstanding. I eat lunch there almost every day and have enjoyed dinner there as well. Great craft cocktails - and really good selection for food. I am a foodie and consider this one of... More
