The facilities, was clean, short walk to beach, Friendly staff, everyone was having a great time. I loved the site more then any other I been too.

Property needs a refresh but overall a great vacation and location.

The staff was very nice. The restaurant was amazing. We ate there every night we were there. Pool was clean and maintained well.

Sonesta resort was absolutely beautiful inside and out. The staff were great and always making sure we had everything we needed during our stay. Will definitely be back!

Like the amenities like swiming pool, access to beach, towels, restaurants, coffee bar, breakfast etc. There was mo microwave in the room. Bathrooms can be upgraded and staff can be friendly.

The Sonesta is a very nice resort. I have a feeling that many of the things that weren’t great about our stay have to do with the pandemic - we didn’t receive any washcloths and only one hand towel - so we had to ask. We only received one roll of toilet paper for a 4 night stay, and had to request. The pool bar and grille was closed and hours were limited on restaurants even though signage reflected them as open. Rooms were fine - though dated. The staff was very friendly. We have stayed at other properties on HHI and the Sonesta is similar, though maybe a bit more dated. Our room location was near the atrium area on the 5th floor, and bar kept us awake until 2-3a each night. Not really complaints, just observations. We had a nice stay otherwise!

Easy access to beach. Staff very friendly and helpful. Walking paths were great!

We did not know that you would not attend to the rooms at all and that all the garbage would simply build up in the room

Room next to noisy Conference rooms Fire evac at 1:00 AM

NOT dog friendly - this property claims to be dog friendly, however they do not allow the dog to be left alone in the room (even kenneled). They also do not allow dogs in the restaurant, pool, or other public parts of the resort. Which means, if we cant take the dog with us, and we cant leave her in our room, then we cant enjoy any of the resort. It was so strange. We spent most of the time on the beach with our dog, but during months when dogs aren't allowed on the beach, it would stink to be stuck in your hotel room with the dog.

We loved the island and the privacy of the resort. The resort was beautifully landscaped and designed with tranquility in mind.

Property itself was really nice. Pretty clean room, air conditioner did not work that well. Pool was very crowded, but the service was excellent. Great beach access.

I was very surprised that a fairly high end hotel of this size had such poor dining options.

Staff was nice and helpful. The room was overall clean but we found a small stain on our sheets that looked like dried blood. The staff quickly brought not sheets and we were able to move forward. The food was great, although very expensive. While the room was overall clean, the room was a bit dated. The beach access was great and the pool area was kids was as well. Our son enjoyed his staff. The staff at the shift shop were extremely nice to us! We overall enjoyed our staff and will be back.

No conceage went to front desk for transportation help or restaurant recommendation none offered had trouble with airport transportation no assistance. Far from harbor town or any restaurants no walking distance to anything.

Dear Paul, We appreciate you staying with us in Hilton Head, and we’re sorry if our current housekeeping protocols weren’t what you’d expected. We are asking our guests to leave their garbage in the hallway for removal at this time, and we provide full service upon request after every three nights. We look forward to expanding our housekeeping service as soon as possible. Thank you for your feedback! Kind regards, Sonesta Guest Relations
