Sonesta Resort Hilton Head

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

The hotel

The Atlantic rollers alone make it worth checking into the Sonesta Resort on Hilton Head Island, and once you discover there's a great choice of pools, restaurants and bars on-site then you're bound to want to find out more. As you'd expect from a AAA 4-Diamond resort, the Sonesta boasts an excellent choice of amenities and contemporary comforts with newly renovated guest rooms promising a stylish pocket of peace from where to kick back and relax on your private balcony or patio. Aside from the modern standard of accommodation there's also more than a fair share of things to do outdoors with plenty of golf, tennis and watersports adding to an enviable array of easily accessible activities. Thanks to the beach location, this is an excellent choice for couples and families with numerous shops, restaurants and nearby attractions to keep everyone happy and enthused all day long. The nearby Shipyard complex is definitely a great place to start any exploration of Hilton Head Island and if you're thinking of exploring further then why not hire a bike and take in the sights prior to returning to base for a well deserved massage at the spa*.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Good location has beach access, has pool, several restaurants. The staff here is very good. When checking in - checked in early and received upgrade from standard parking lot view to pool view. Ate at Seacrest restaurant (separate review) which was very good. Tamika our server was terrific. Room was good size, clean and comfortable. Plenty of free self parking, valet available for $15. Internet was out 1 night so they waived the resort fee which I appreciated. Elevator was out one evening so had to go down 5 flights of stairs. Pool could use a cleaning. Read less

The hotel is very clean. The rooms and bathrooms are quite big and the location of the hotel is right in front of the beach. I also like the nice detail of the water they have in the lobby infused with fruits. I highly recommend this hotel.
