The service was excellent. The staff ( Mollie, Lauren) were attentive, kind , pleasant. I have stayed at several 5 star hotels on the island. Non compare to the Sonesta. Mollie surprised us with champagne and strawberries. Made our trip!!!!! We will not stay anywhere else.

This newly updated resort is located in a great area and offers private beach access. Not only was the resort visually appealing, but the staff is friendly and helpful. Mollie, advised my partner and I on some great dining options. If one is looking for an all star customer service person; ask for Mollie! Overall, great experience, quiet, convienent, clean and updated.

This was our first visit to Hilton Head and really enjoyed the visit. Stayed at the Sonesta for four days. The place was remodeled and very nicely done. We upgraded to a room with a beach view, very nice. restaurants in hotel were somewhat limited due to time of year.

This is a very nice place to stay with an amazing pool and amenities. The greeters were very nice and helpful! The beds were super comfy and I loved the shampoo and conditioners the room supplied. I normally bring my own but forgot this time.

My Sonesta room was spacious and clean. Loved the big flat screen tv. The staff at the hotel were friendly! I didn't want to leave and actually stayed an extra night than intended! I haven't slept this well in years. The beds were clean and comfortable. You didn't hear any noise from other rooms on the floor. I would stay here again in the future and I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!

Room Tip: I feel you can't go wrong staying at this hotel!

My husband and I came for a weekend getaway. Can't say enough nice things about the people and the resort. Everyone was very friendly, courteous and helpful. The resort grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The rooms are VERY clean and I just wished I could have brought the bed and pillows home!!! Very comfortable. Loved the night lights under the night stands that came on when you got out of bed.
The only problem we had was the 2nd day the water temperature in the bathroom would not get hot.
The hotel sits back off the beach but we did have a partial ocean view. Took a great walk on the beach Sunday morning.
I hope we get a chance to go back and stay at the Sonesta.
Special thanks to Mollie and the ladies at the front desk. Also to the bartender (and yes we forgot to write down his name) but the "older" gentleman as he said he was referred to before!!! Great Cosmo!!
