I visited the resort over the weekend and it is a quite lovely. The pool is beautiful and the beach access is worth the price of the room. I will say that there were A LOT of partying young adults there that I could have done without but the guys singing in the lounge made up for that with wonderful...

Perfect! We stayed at the Sonesta for our wedding, getting married directly next door at the beach club. The staff and hotel management could not have been more accommodating and sweet to us and our guests! I would recommend this resort to anyone planning a wedding on Hilton Head Island or just looking to getaway as a family. Thank you...

We just stayed at the Sonesta Resort on Hilton Head Island SC, and had a great time. The people are very, very nice, the complex is beautiful and best of all it's a pet friendly facilty. The service was outstanding, no matter what area we we're dealing with. The property sits right on the Atlantic Ocean with a beautiful strech...

Room AC internally set no matter the temperature on display unit. Room was warm and uncomfortable especially during bedtime. seems like a corporate decision to save on electrical expenses at the comfort of guest. Becoming industry standard, unfortunately.

Having stayed at a few Sonesta properties, I know the caliber of experience they deliver. The Hilton Head Sonesta did not disappoint. They delivered an extremely easy, pleasant, and relaxing stay even during spring break season. The facilities were all clean and well appointed. The room very large and comfortable. The service, from the maids to the bartenders to the...

Lovely hotel, staff and beach. But it is more of a family resort, the pool and hot tub are just over run with kids! Not as relaxing as we hoped, but a really lovely spot all the same! Lovely hammocks!

We have traveled to the Sonesta at Hilton Head for more than ten years to visit family, staying multiple times each year. Now that reason is gone but our fond memories of the Sonesta Hilton Head will remain. We started visiting before the Sonesta took over and renovated the property. That renovation and the constant improvements since have made the...
