My husband and I recently had a long weekend away at Sonesta Resort in Hilton Head based on good reviews and photos. Overall, the design was updated with a sleek and contemporary atmosphere. The rooms were well done too - especially the lighting and countertop in the bathroom. The staff were friendly and professional, and access to the beach was a short walk. They had two pools and one hot tub - they were all mostly full all the time, and there were children everywhere (family-friendly). I wouldn't say this is a place for singles or couples wanting a romantic or quiet weekend. I mean, there were kids running and splashing everywhere and we even saw some kids in diapers getting into the hot tub - disgusting! They also have two restaurants that basically have the same limited and uncreative menu and is too expensive for the average food. We dined out instead after eating our first 2 meals at the resort. Overall, our experience there was okay. It's surprisingly labeled a AAA 4-Diamond resort, but that's probably based on the rooms and overpriced dining. Will not be returning.
