I must start off with the two most impressive aspects of this resort....the location and the layout. You will adore the drive through the Shipyard Plantation to the Sonesta Resort. It's absolutely stunning! The resorts grounds, pool, and beach are spectacular. I was impressed with the lobby and overall decor of the resort. I knew we were in for a...

We found the place to be very beautiful and right by the water also. Staff excellent, room awesome and property wonderful too. Could not have asked for more. Loved the night lights that went on as you got out of the beds.

we visit HHI several times a year and have always stayed at another "premium" property. Sonesta was recommended to us and we decided to give it a try. While not quite as swanky, Sonesta provides great value. Restaurant and bar were very good. We had great meals, good wines, and well made cocktails. Restaurant staff;.

Great place, with spacious clean rooms. Our room had motion sensors that turned on night lights when you needed to get up in the dark ! Well thought out room! There is a restaurant, bar, pool, firepits, and it is right on the beach!

My wife and I were in town for the Hilton Head Marathon and to celebrate Valentines Day. From the moment we arrived, we felt as if we were being taken advantage of. I didn't mind paying the parking attendants for their service, but from that moment they would not let us take our own bags to the room, so I...

We attended a conference here in the off-season. The hotel staff was polite and professional. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable and the grounds were pleasant to stroll through with wonderful access to the beach.

Couldn't have picked a better spot for our first visit to Hilton Head. The Sonesta is situated right on a most beautiful stretch of beach (via a short walkway) with white, powdery sand.
