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*.

Had the opportunity to stay here just before the coronavirus impacted South Carolina. Found the staff to be friendly and helpful in the trying circumstances, and it had nice grounds and beach access. The rooms could use some updating.

We had been planning the wedding of our dreams on 3/20/20 in Hilton Head, but with the pandemic we had to scramble with just parents and our kids and figure out alternatives. Sam at Sonesta literally made our dreams come true. Was never the wedding we imagined but was even better. The resort bent over backwards for us to help us out at every turn. Diane (catering manager) stepped in to officiate the wedding for us and she did an incredible job. Sam helped us find a new location that we wouldn’t have a rental fee since there were only 6 of us now. She also worked with Jeff to set up an incredible brunch for us on the patio. The food was beyond incredible. Ben did a remarkable job taking care of us during the brunch. Beyond all this, the resort made so many accommodations to help the guests during this crazy time of no sit down food or drinks. The property is beautiful and the pool is fantastic. We can’t say enough good things about it here and we felt part of the family. Below is a photo with Sam and Diane who truly made this a remarkable day we will never forget! Read less

Sonesta is a beautiful well run resort. Their people are courteous and helpful. Everyone feeling the stress of Covid-19 and certainly running a hotel is affected! Staff adjusted well during midst of crisis.
