Room AC internally set no matter the temperature on display unit. Room was warm and uncomfortable especially during bedtime. seems like a corporate decision to save on electrical expenses at the comfort of guest. Becoming industry standard, unfortunately.

This was the first time we stayed at the sonesta, the grounds are beautiful, the rooms were spacious and clean. The only down fall is there are no microwaves in the rooms. There are only microwaves on the odd floors in the vending area. The pool area was nice. Overall its was a decent stay, will consider staying at the...

Having stayed at a few Sonesta properties, I know the caliber of experience they deliver. The Hilton Head Sonesta did not disappoint. They delivered an extremely easy, pleasant, and relaxing stay even during spring break season. The facilities were all clean and well appointed. The room very large and comfortable. The service, from the maids to the bartenders to the...

Lovely hotel, staff and beach. But it is more of a family resort, the pool and hot tub are just over run with kids! Not as relaxing as we hoped, but a really lovely spot all the same! Lovely hammocks!

We have traveled to the Sonesta at Hilton Head for more than ten years to visit family, staying multiple times each year. Now that reason is gone but our fond memories of the Sonesta Hilton Head will remain. We started visiting before the Sonesta took over and renovated the property. That renovation and the constant improvements since have made the...

I stayed for three nights. It is clean and has a nice ocean front location. The pool and lounge chairs are nice too. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My two issues: the walls in the room are thin and we could hear every word the people next door were saying--late at night! Also, they need more recycle bins...

My husband and I stayed at the Sonesta Resort for the first time, we were very pleased with the Resort and all of the amenities it offered. In summary, very comfortable bed, nice flatscreen TV; great bars on site, right on the beach, the place had everything you would want on a vacation! We would definitely return in the future.

We liked the hotel, but should have tempered our expectations. They were really high from the pictures online, so we were a little disappointed when we got there. I think it's probably a very nice family hotel. We were a couple traveling without kids, and so not sure it's the best place for couples. The pool situation is smaller than...
