We had stayed at this property numerous times when it was the Crown Plaza. Even then, though it was dated, it always had wonderful grounds and an excellent location in close proximity to both Sea Pines and Coligny. This was our first time back since the Sonesta renovation and we were very pleased with the accomodations. The Sonesta has given a fresh modern spa-like feel to everything from the lobby to the outside amenities to the rooms. The lobby staff from check-in on was always very accomodating of any request. Same goes for the valet and cleaning staff. The resort fee of $17 is pretty standard for the island and includes in-room wifi and parking. The outside pool is heated and is surrounded by nice cabanas and lounges. The former indoor pool is now open to the outside (but covered) and includes a jacuzzi. The property is also pet friendly charging a pet fee of $150.00 for 1st floor rooms island view rooms (weight limitations apply but I am not sure as to the maximum weight allowed). The one issue we did have was minor but since this is Tripadvisor I will mention. Being we were at the resort over New Year's, my wife and I wanted to enjoy the outdoor fireplace. Unfortunately it did not just switch on so I went to the front desk for assistance. The night manager was very nice and paiged maintenance to get the fireplace started. About 10 minutes later the maintenance supervisor showed up and walked outside with me. When I showed him the fireplace, he said he had no idea as to how it worked and that he could not assist us. To me it seems that maintenance should know how all guest amenities work so that they may assist with same. Other than this minor event though, a fabulous trip at the Sonesta!
