We did not get to see the ocean because of storm so I can not comment about that. The Hotel and staff were kind and the rooms were very comfortable, classy and clean. I would stay here again, no question about that.

The Sonesta is a good resort with a great outdoor pool area (includes a heated pool plus a small covered pool and jacuzzi), decent sized fitness center, small spa and just an ok restaurant (presentation 5 star & food 3 stars). Internet speed was good. Resort fee is $20 per day which isn't bad if you can actually use the...

While on a two week business trip, we stayed at the Sonesta Resort Hilton Head for three nights. We were exhausted and so pleased to find calm, comfort, smiling faces, good food, and a wonderful gift shop, Pearls, right there in the hotel! Staff members were very helpful and supportive and the manager of Pearls, Mary Howe, was the greatest!

This place was very clean, nicely decorated, and there was a small refrigerator in the room. The beds and pillows were SO comfortable! They had a restaurant downstairs that was really good but a little on the pricey side. They didn't serve free breakfast I guess since they are a resort. The staff was very nice and helpful, and it...

I have paid many visits to Hilton Head, while working on a home remodel. Stayed at each 4-5 star hotel and Sonesta is the one I keep coming back to. I was shocked by another review this month. It was so poor. That's not the Sonesta I know. The hotel is spotlessly clean. Rooms large and beds very comfortable, with...
