We stayed one night during Thanksgiving week, with a great deal. Wow. Very impressed with how well planned the outdoor spaces are in terms of providing spots to relax. Which we had stayed another night.

The resort, which is on the beach, is lovely, both outside and inside. Outside - enjoyed the cabanas, hammocks, lagoon, pool, hot tub, fire pit and lots of cozy, comfy seating. My room, 2nd floor garden view king, was spacious, nicely decorated, clean and quiet. Bed very comfortable. Customer service was exceptional. Had room service for dinner one night -...

The hotel, the rooms, the pool area, the grounds, the beach - all were excellent. Staff was friendly and helpful, especially Marvil. The setting evoked memories of the better Hawaiian resorts. We only ate breakfasts on site, but they were well prepared and service was excellent. This hotel is definitely on our revisit list!

We spent one night at the Sonesta during a quick weekend trip. We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived to find the lobby covered with small, individually decorated Christmas trees. They were beautiful and really lent a festive feel to the resort. The property is very nice, what you would expect from a 4 star oceanfront resort on Hilton...

This was a 4 day vacation for myself, husband and 17 yr old daughter. We were a little apprehensive on the drive onto the property, the resort is set waaay back from the main road so needed transportation to do any sightseeing. However, once we entered the resort we were glad we had chosen this over the Omni. The resort...

First time trip to Hilton head SC. this resort is beyond our expectation. From the interior decoration, cleanliness of facilities, entertainment for family to the customer service. The room is comfy, well decorated, the color, shape and repetition of the interior shows this was done with careful thoughts. Love this place and will definitely comes back.
