I have been to many resorts including several in the Carribean, but never had service like this. First we were greeted so kindly by Caroline and then the manager. Then we had a phone call to check that everything was going ok for our first day. I asked to have a treat delivered to my room upon arrival for my... More

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.

What a difference a new company makes. I had stayed at this hotel before when it was the Crown and did not think it was great. However I was really impressed with how Sonesta has redone the hotel. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay. My whole family felt welcomed, including my 3 year daughter who was given a frisbee at... More

I've always heard Hilton Head was beautiful but I was not prepared for one of my best vacation experience. First everyone I met be it the Starbucks, Publix or the people shopping as well, everyone was so nice and friendly.

Wonderfully secluded in the lush low country landscape. Recently renovated property, cleanest hotel we've ever stayed in. Nice pool area and super beach access. Friendly professional staff. Great happy hour. Good restaurant and bar. Super location. Don't miss the Jazz Corner and Charlie's L'Etoile Verte nearby for dinner. Can't wait to return.

Hilton Head is an OLD resort town. Hotels are tired, sad, and musty. Sonesta is an old hotel, low ceilings, stucco walls, not modern, but the renovations are bright, airy, and very comfortable. Beds are very plush, bathrooms small but very functional with great shower and double vanities. Any hotel that's been upgraded on HH is worth the steep price,... More
