Lovely hotel, warm staff, excellent restaurant! But right now last week of September there is a beach replenishment project. If you came for a peaceful quiet beach you won't be getting it. If you hang at the pool only then you will be fine. Hopefully this project won't last long but call and check.

First visit to the Sonesta Resort on Hilton Head. Amazing quality from the greeting at check in throughout our stay. The resort is gorgeous, classic Hilton Head with Live Oaks and lush plantings. The food at all the restaurants was outstanding making it a real treat to just hang out at the resort.

The property was beauuuuuutiful! There was a fire place, a outdoor pool that lit up at night, a bar with several tv's for the sports fans. This is definitely a place for loving couples, not sure about kids though. Worth every penny! I'd recommend it...

This was my second time visiting the Hilton Head Sonesta and it won't be my last. My 6 year old absolutely loves it. She would stay at the pool all day if we allowed it. The beach was nice too. I hope to return before the weather changes. Would be nice if the love bugs would vacate the area, but... More

We went here for a couples retreat so while we would not sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by the hotel as it was a very nice hotel. The staff was very polite and helpful. The pool and other areas were very well maintained and the atmosphere was very family. Would recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Always enjoy the resort. Stayed there many times as we are Hilton Head residents. Our last stay was during Labor day weekend right after tropical storm Hermine. The resort grounds were cleaned by the time we woke Saturday morning. Amazing considering the amount of debris down island wide.
