I have stayed here twice and both times I have had the nicest experience. Beautiful grounds, helpful staff, and good restaurants. The live mudic in the summer near the beach is awesome as well. They have lots of activities going on too.

This was the best conference I have attended. The accommodations, the rooms, the food, the cordiallity from the Sonesta staff...5 star. Far better than Vegas, or NO LA conferences. The grounds and beach/ocean access are magnificent. Will definitely return with family.

What is a good time of year to visit that its warm and you can use the pool etc.
The pools are open year round and are heated. Typically it is warm year round, as well. But, the "season" is Memorial Day to Labor Day where it is hot and all services are available, daily!

"Corner Room was lovely - a bit of extra space to spread out!"
"Like most of Hilton Head, the resort does not face the beach, but has quick access"
"Stayed on the third floor away from the lobby / attrrium. Jazz singer first night could be heard 3 floors up, but not in the room we had."
"Ask for ocean/water view room."
"Ask for a room overlooking pool area."
