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*.

We spend a weekend there with the family in off-season end of Jan and enjoyed a lot. Renting a bike is a very recommended activity! However, I found the breakfast menu a bit overpriced for the rather limited choice. We went outside on the 2nd day. Otherwise, the hotel is in a very nice location.

To top it off, it was my wife's birthday and they surprised her with a birthday cake to our room!!! AWESOME!!!! Read less
