First time in Sonesta and I must say we were impressed with resort and service. It feels like you’re in a tropical island beach retreat. The place is massive with two pools, jacuzzi, gardens, lake and direct access to the beach. Service and food have also been great and we ended-up eating there all the time. Room are large and we took a 1st floor two queen bed room with patio which was enough for two adults and two kids. Would definitely recommend for a family break.

The room was nice. I liked how many lights there were, and there were motion lights under the end tables by the bed to help us to see if we woke up in the middle of the night to use the restroom. The pool was really great, and it was awesome how many beach chairs and towels that were available for the hotel guests. Of course the pathway to the ocean from the resort was phenomenal. The conceirge woman who checked us in was really nice and informative. Out of all the hotels my husband and I stayed at for our honeymoon, all of them gave us a complimentary bottle of wine, but the Sonesta also gave us chocolate covered strawberries, which were awesome!

Loved our trip to Sonesta Resort Hilton Head. The room was beautiful, had a great view and loved the surprise champagne and chocolate covered strawberries sent to our room for our anniversary celebration! The text message greeting checking in with us upon arrival and follow up throughout the stay was very nice. Loved being on the beach and renting bikes right on property to ride on the beach and on the many bike paths right from the resort. Loved the evening fire to sit by and meet other guests. Loved being able to walk down to the beach to see the beautiful sunrise and sunset. It was a wonderful stay at a beautiful property! Thank you!

Having just come back from the Sonesta Resort I feel I have to leave a somewhat negative review as there are no recyling facilities there whatsoever. The bar area is churning out plastic all day long - plastic plates, cups, knives and forks and there is nowhere to recycle it. When I mentioned recycling to a member of staff she just shrugged her shoulders. Surely a hotel as large as this should be doing more? I can't begin to imagine how much waste is being created on a daily basis. Perhaps the hotel could respond?

The Property was nice. The small pool was somewhat rundown. The seafood buffet was severely lacking. The fish was dry and overcooked. The proximity to the beach is great. The room was clean and comfortable. Dog friendly.
