We needed a place to stay before we got into our rental house, so we chose this hotel. As a long time business traveler and frequent leisure traveler, I'm familiar with hotels who put try to put women next to the elevator or ice machine. Anna, who checked us in, expressed surprise when I talked to her about it later.... More

There was a large palmetto bug in my room (along with another small insect and several pieces of hair found in the shower when I arrived). Although maintenance came to remove the bug out of my room and checked to make sure there were no other insects remaining, it was hard for me to sleep. The next morning the manager... More

First class staff, room, food, spa, facilities, and beach! You cannot go wrong here as the Resort Employees and Resort step up and knock it out of the park. The beach is perfect for families, individuals, or couples. Look no further, book now!

We had top-notch service and the room was very nice and updated. The downstairs bar was enjoyable with live music and good atmosphere. The pool area was nice, only one towel guy was a bit of a jerk, but overall everyone else was extremely customer focused. The pool area is a bit of a haul to the beach. Overall excellent... More

We recently went down south and chose Hilton Head as a stop. The day before we arrived we picked the Sonesta Resort and booked 3 nights. The Sonesta resort is buried within a private neighborhood that is beautiful to drive through. The resort itself was a decent size with a nice pool and clean rooms. Our bed was comfy, but... More
