This is the third time we have stayed at this hotel. It is well kept and the beds are very comfortable. All staff were very helpful with the exception of the the bartender by the pool. He did not seem to enjoy his job.

The location is magical, the staff very accommodating, and the experience is unforgettable. One of Hilton Head Islands' gems! We were greeted by all as if we were close friends returning for a visit. The service is top-notch and you are made to feel as if you are the most important guest in attendance. Wonderful experience!

Traveled up the coast and stayed here 2 nights. Hotel is in very good shape, has a beautiful beach, bike rentals on site and lots of bike trails to ride. Great location on the island. Room was clean and in very good shape also.

My family and I stayed 3 nights at the Sonesta Resort in Hilton Head Island and loved every minute of it! From the moment we pulled up to the valet, we were greeted by Charlie and hotel manager, Mary. On the day we arrived, it was our twin boys' 8th birthday and they made sure it was a memorable one!...

Very nice resort. Grounds are beautiful and very well kept. Rooms are very clean and modern with everything you need. Microwave would be nice but there is a community one in the hallway by the ice machine. Main pool not heated, only a problem because it was cool when we were there. Heated " shade pool " by hot tub...

Decided to sneak away for a Valentines getaway with my wife. The town was quiet due to it being the off season but most restaurants were available. the pool bar was closed all week which made it a little inconvenient to enjoy an adult beverage by the heated pools. The front desk was very accommodating as there was a tennis...

The Sonesta is honestly the best hotel in Hilton Head. The hotel is beautiful and perfectly appointed, the staff are knowledgable and friendly, the food is delicious and - most of all - I was blown away by this level of service at a hotel priced so reasonably. I didn't want to leave and was already planning my next return...

The Sonesta Resort exceeded our expectations. We purchased a Groupon for two nights and wished we had stayed longer. Our room was large, well-appointed, super clean, and had a very comfortable bed. All of our interactions with staff were very positive and everyone was genuinely friendly. The grounds were properly maintained and provided a resort atmosphere. Although the weather didn't...

Clean, modern and well laid out resort. Wifi is OK but not exceptional. Ample free parking. Very good happy hour at Lobby bar. Numerous selections for both food and spirits. Quality of both were quite good. We would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

This was an average hotel room for a resort price. Staff did not make us feel special, and we regularly had to request towels, pillows, toilet paper, etc because housekeeping didn't leave enough for the four of us in the room. The "garden view" was atrocious -- it consisted of a rooftop with noisy fans...I expected a parking lot view,...
