We met my parents up from
Fl at the resort for a short weekend. We had a blast, it was a little
Colder then we would have liked it but the heated pool made up for everything!! We toured the resort and fed turtles they had activities for the kids everyday! Lots of family friendly places to
Visit I would go back in a heart beat!!

Nice room paid extra for pool and partial ocean view with balcony which was nice except for someone else’s bottom. Room nice public spaces nice as was the outside places. Overall might return. Seems like they had many guest workers whose first language wasn’t English posed some problem with check in and out

Fantastic !!!!

Arriving in February we were happy to have unseasonably HOT weather.. Pools are heated well in either case and kept perfectly clean. Small issue with WIFI was resolved and we were treated to some upgrades for the inconvenience. Cant say enough good things about this place... highly recommended. BEAUTIFUL

Only at the Sonesta at Hilton Head Island could one enjoy so many amenities in the middle of February! Amazing concierge and hospitality team! They had a welcoming amenities treat for us the first day. We traveled here to celebrate after a very stressful January. This hotel went over and beyond all expectations. The room was perfect and the food also amazing. We dined at Heyward’s for breakfast and I highly recommend the almond French toast! Baileys also never disappoints. Wonderful homemade margaritas. First one “on the rocks” I’ve had that I thoroughly enjoyed! We recommend the peel and eat shrimp from the Grill. Management texted a few times during our visit just to check on us. You can’t get more personal service than that. The weather was mid 70’s and gorgeous, yet on the last day it was a bit cool. (But the pool is double heated and the indoor/outdoor pool is even more heated than that.) We even returned home with tans! WE WILL BE BACK!!
(Only rec. is that Sonesta please give the visitors ability to use luggage carts without bellmen when leaving resort.)

Just a few negatives, pillows not most comfortable, shower was not cleaned, as clump of conditioner found " stuck" in odd place(don't believe it fell out of container), no luggage cart unless you want to tip valet, no shuttle to local downtown area. Coligny circle is approx 1.8 mile walk, not 1 mile, as suggested by staff.
Bayleys Bar nice, drinks potent, in good way,tapas great.
Beautiful grounds! Beach is worth the stroll, out the back of property.
All staff very courteous.
