Just home from a 5 night stay at the Sonesta..loved the location, atmosphere, cleanliness . Everyone working there was friendly, courteous. Especially want to thank Bobson. His joyous smile and friendly greetings every day made us feel very welcome. Also want to thank Elaine in housekeeping. We were in room 5098 and she really was great.

Staying with our family for the memorial weekend. There is only one pool, relatively small with nothing special. Way too small and not enough chairs for all the guests. Also for $400 per night at a beach resort I would expect better views than the attached pictures. It's pretty underwhelming. Fine stay but we'd never return.

Our room was nice they did try to upgrade and make everything nice. The only problem was that the thermostat couldn't take out the humidity so we needed a little bit of heat but had to turn on to AC just to take care of it. Other than this problem, the room was nice, no real view just tall trees...

We loved the Sonesta Resort. The hotel is lovely and the rooms are spacious and very functional, with a seating area with sofa and tables, as well as a desk. The bathroom was well-lit, with a great shower and plush towels. I highly recommend this hotel. Dinner at the Old Fort Pub was great.

Sonesta in Hilton Head is an excellent stay for young families. My wife and I travelled with our 20 month-old son and there were a bunch of other young families there. Kids under 3 eat for free at the restaurants on site, which was a plus! The beach is a 3 minute walk from the pool, through the nicely landscaped...

We stay at the Sonesta every year. It is a secluded and secure location that is close to everything in Hilton Head. The staff is friendly and the restaurants are top notch. Perfect location on the beach and has a golf course on the complex.

“For a quiet room ask for 5th floor north side (we had 5093). Not worth it to pay extra for a "view." To view the pool/beach, go outside!”

“The best view would a room overlooking the pool area.”

“Ocean view cost more but was well worth it for us.”

“If you want a view, make sure you book ocean front or pool view. The 'island view' is not worth it.”
