“HHI Beach Wedding”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We had our wedding ceremony at Sonesta Beach front and reception at their Beach Pavilion. Everything was absolutely gorgeous! The hotel was recently renovated and is phenomenal! The staff have everything you need to make your stay the best. Kathryn from catering helped with the wedding planning and everything was perfect. She was very easy to work with and stayed the whole evening to ensure it went smoothly. The hotel room was very clean, great room views, and extremely comfortable beds. The bar terrace had a nice fireplace and cocktail chairs to lounge towards the end of the night. Overall would definitely recommend Sonesta in HHI!

Room Tip: Higher floors with better views

We've stayed at 'family friendly' hotels before, but none compare to Sonesta Resort Hilton Head. They have everything you need to keep your kids happily entertained, but without the craziness of those family hotels. The resort is bright, clean and luxurious, and the staff were all excellent. The room was great - loved having a k-cup coffee pot for the mornings! Had a wonderful time and will definitely return. I even found good shopping in the gift shop. What's not to love?!

I stayed one night for business and I wish all my hotels were like this one. The staff is friendly from the minute you arrive on the property. The front desk treated me like I was the most important person they had seen that day. The room was outstanding and the bed was perfect. I like the motion lights on the baseboards when navigating a dark room. I am on the road in hotels half the year and I can tell you that you will feel good with this hotel choice.

Room Tip: Ocean facing rooms a must to take it all in.

The resort is beautiful. Wonderful decor and the rooms were great. The only issue I had was that the bathroom wasn't totally clean. There were hairs in the tub and even after the housekeeper came they were still there. This wasn't a huge deal but just something that I noticed. The customer service was great and they gave us all the information about things to do that we needed. I wish I had been able to get to the spa but maybe next time.

I am reluctant to say how well I like this hotel because I don't want it to become crowded like others where my family have stayed. However, I do want Sonesta to remain in business as well; so, here it goes. This place cannot be beat for the amount of money being spent; one could easily spend $300+ per night elsewhere for a comparable place. Hopefully, Sonesta will remain affordable even after its recent renovations. The accommodations are upscale, beds and pillows are very comfortable, and the entire place is very clean. The beach is just behind the hotel about 50 yards behind the pool and across the sand dunes. Pool area, restaurant, and any other areas I visited are nice with good service. The restaurant food is as good as any other hotel restaurant I have partaken of; our breakfast pricing was only a little higher than if we had gone to a Cracker Barrel. If planning a trip, make the reservation now before the word gets out.

My son and I just returned from an incredible stay at the Sonesta Resort. We stayed in the cleanest and friendliest hotel I've visited in a long time. The customer service was outstanding. We lounged by the pool and my child was able to play in the kiddie pool safely. That was nice getting to relax while he played. Every detail from the contemporary furnishings, to the Keurig coffee maker in the hotel room, to the hidden nightlights under my nightstand when I got up in the middle of the night and didn't have to hunt for the light switch and wake up a sleeping toddler. Chris and Damien by the pool were so kind to us and Kenneth in the restaurant was an excellent server and the buffet was delicious. The housekeeping staff was very kind approachable. I'm telling you this place was a true GEM on Hilton Head Island!! I enjoyed the contemporary furnishings very much and the bed was very clean and comfortable. The only thing I would add would be the Bible in the drawer. Other than that, it was impeccable!!
