Great Ambiance!
Reviewed 5 hours ago

Sonesta HH is a wonderful place with a trendy and unique vibe. Rooms and facilities are well-designed, clean and kept very well. Easy access to the beautiful beach is invaluable Marianne at the restaurant/bar was very kind (food is fresh, healthy and tasty) & Meghan at the front desk was so friendly and personable - they both made all the difference in our 1 week stay there, Good job Sonesta!

Nice stay for a conference
Reviewed 6 hours ago

Stayed here for work for two nights. I knew nothing about this place upon arriving. I was really pleasantly surprised all around.

The service was truly the high point. Friendly, thorough without being overbearing. Bartenders, waitstaff and front desk - everybody was just about as good as you could hope for: nice, helpful, friendly, and fun to be around.

The setting is beautiful. I didn't really get to do anything fun cause I was working the entire time, but I did walk to check out the beach and it's wide and flat and beautiful. Pool area looked very nice as well.

Hallways and rooms show their age a little, but very clean and very well maintained. Beds are comfy, TVs are up to date and nice.

Used the gym, it was small, but totally serviceable.

I would def stay here again given the chance, preferably some time when the weather was better.

Wonderful honeymoon destination
Reviewed 1 day ago

The Sonesta Hilton Head Island Resort was our honeymoon destination. We couldn’t have had a more wonderful time. The staff was gracious and accommodating. The resort provides delicious food, beautiful views and plenty of activity. The view from our balcony was amazing. We were treated to delicious champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. We had a great time walking to the ocean, golfing and relaxing.

Thanksgiving 2018 stay
Reviewed 1 day ago

We had a wonderful stay at the Sonesta over Thanksgiving 2018. The hotel room was clean and quiet, which we very much appreciate. The bar staff in the evening of 11/21/18 and 11/22/18 both nights around 7-9 pm were very entertaining, knowledgeable about drink making and menu, as well as accommodating to all guests (even though my football team lost! ha ha). The female who worked in the gift shop on Friday, 11/23 was very nice and helpful as well. We did not dine in the hotel so I cannot comment. The security staff were enjoyable to talk to as they waited for their Thanksgiving meal to be boxed up on Thanksgiving night, at the beginning of the night shift.
