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*.

Our family stayed at the resort while my Husband attended a convention nearby. Upon check in are to Queen beds were sold out and traveling with grand kids we needed those extra beds. Meghan helped us with the utmost respect and upgraded our stay to the presidential suite!! The beds are comfy, the pillows are great, service is top notch! We are lunch poolside and the lunch was amazing! The adult beverages were great as well. Be careful because they are made to hit you later:0) a very short walk to the beach, ocean view, and if your bringing children you MUST visit Turtle beach on property and feed the turtles. They each almost anything you bring them in case you miss feeding time. Great hammock for 2-4 people, lagoon, bike rentals...I could go on. Everything you need is on property, or less that a 5 min walk to beach. Floaties, noodles, Pool toys are allowed at the pool. Kids area from inches all the way up to 9 feet. Something for everyone. And the shipping director is just a 10 minute drive away with additional dining and another beach and a large outdoor splash pad. I hope everyone enjoys their stay as much as we did! Read less

We were finally able to make another visit to Sonesta Resort Hilton Head this weekend. As has been the case with our many previous trips, we had a great weekend visit. The grounds were well kept and the entire staff was very friendly, courteous, and acted like they really enjoyed their jobs. Room was quiet and the beds were very comfortable. We also enjoyed the nightly ice cream that was available at night outside of Heyward’s. Ricky provided exceptional drink service around the pool area. In addition, George Hartman made sure our room requests were taken care of as he has done many times in the past. We hope to make many more trips to Sonesta in the future. If you have never visited Sonesta Resort Hilton Head, you should definitely consider them if you ever visit Hilton Head. Read less

My husband and I chose this resort based on the reviews and of course the resort’s website. It did not disappoint! The property was beautiful, the service was great. No charge for part. Hard to find these days. The rooms were quiet. Easy access to the beach. The island itself was beautiful. Tons of places to eat within minutes (5-9 minute drive).… Read more

The only downside was the restaurant at the resort was good but expensive. We already plan to return! Read less

I would highly recommend this property. My life long friend and I spent a few days at Sonesta celebrating out birthdays. The property can be compare to other nice resort hotel. However, the staff is what made our stay very special. Felicity (pool service) thank you so much for the wonderful service. Catherine
