Great, relaxing vacation stay. Hotel food went way beyond expectations.All the food above average, we only left the hotel a couple of times to eat and that was because we had to go out anyway. A little pricey but totally worth it. Felicia, our wonderful server, many times was amazing, friendly Jamaican beauty (my husband said, "no offence, but I...

We stay at the Sonesta every year. It is a secluded and secure location that is close to everything in Hilton Head. The staff is friendly and the restaurants are top notch. Perfect location on the beach and has a golf course on the complex.

We had the breakfast buffet each morning with fresh omelets made to order. The rooms were nice size.

We stayed at Sonesta for 1 week in May. I found many reviews on how wonderful this resort was, but not addressing travel with a toddler so I wanted to add my two cents. The grounds, beach, staff and food is as good as everyone says but we were also so happy with how great everything was for our 2.5...

I really liked this hotel. The staff was over the top friendly. Other positives: I loved the pool, and especially the shade pool. The pillows were just right, and the food was good. Nice location by the beach. A few negatives, although they are minor- our room "view" was the HVAC system on the roof. I guess someone has to...

While my husband attended the symposium, my pup Max and I enjoyed walking on the beach . Also enjoyed the many shady common areas on the hotel grounds. This is a very relaxing, beautiful, family/pet friendly hotel.

Sonesta is set back down a quiet road, if you are use to a Myrtle Beach Hotel stay, very different, there are not 30 hotels in a row. You are not on any main strip of road, noise and activity. The resort has a couple nice pools, a gym, a lounge, and restaurants. The hotel is on the ocean, but...

“For a quiet room ask for 5th floor north side (we had 5093). Not worth it to pay extra for a "view." To view the pool/beach, go outside!”

“The best view would a room overlooking the pool area.”

“Ocean view cost more but was well worth it for us.”

“If you want a view, make sure you book ocean front or pool view. The 'island view' is not worth it.”

“Upper floor pool / ocean view. The rest just look at the parking lot. Some can be a long walk from the elevator.”
