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*.

It's a beautiful luxurious resort with so much charm from the moment you drive-in. We were met by a smile and greeting from Charlie the attendee who filled us in with the amazing sights to see and some history about Hilton Head. We checked in and were met by very kind and courteous staff. Megan and Courtney, in management, were so accommodating and ensured that we were comfortable and always accommodating to ensure our stay is all we had hoped it would be. The Room that we chose was so clean and so spacious and overlooked the charming resort and the ocean. We made reservations to eat at the Heywood restaurant which was so beautiful and the fine dining was so delicious. Our waitress, Stacy, was so sweet and had such a wonderful sense of humor and made our dining experience very special. To top off our dining experience I was given a Valentine rose. I recommend choosing the charming and luxurious Arum Spa for a choice of amaxing treatments. You were given the VIP treatment. Lizzie and Brooke are amazing!! For a relaxing casual experience for the evening, visit the Bayley's Lounge for live music a yummy cocktail made by award winning bartender, Lisa. She loves to introduce you to her new drinks that are going to be in the next Hilton Head competition. It was a perfect and very romantic Anniversary Valentine's Day getaway and I highly recommend this charming luxurious resort. Hilton Head is a beautiful island so much to see. If you are looking for luxury and charm and love to be pampered, make reservations for the Sonesta Resort. We would definitely return again. Thank you Sonesta Resort for making our Anniversary Romantic Getaway so special. Read less

We had (and always have) an amazing stay at Sonesta. From the moment we arrive and are greeted by the bellman we feel special and taken care of. The front desk is always so helpful and kind. Take advantage of the reward program for great discounts around the resort!! We did miss our old bartender Steve but met another wonderful bartender that we quickly connected with. The hotel is always so clean and the housekeeping staff is so friendly. Our little one year old had fun meeting all the staff. It’s perfect for families! We are considering going back again this weekend! You will not be disappointed! 10 STARS! 🌟🌟🌟 Read less

A great place to stay on Hilton Head. If you want to park the car and be able to just relax, this is the place. The beach was wonderful and everything we could need was onsite. We did go out for breakfast one day but that was it. The staff and the restaurants were great. We will keep coming back.

Awesome place with friendly staff. There was a leak in our bathroom upon checking in, the staff immediately moved us to another room and sent complimentary wine and cheese up. Location right on the beach👏
