U.S. News Review

Spreading out over 11 acres on Hilton Head Island's east coast, the Sonesta Resort Hilton Head invites visitors to take advantage of its prime location and top-notch amenities. Thanks to a recent $30 million facelift, the resort now features a heated lagoon swimming pool and the full-service Arum Spa. After you're feeling replenished, retire to your digs and admire views of the ocean, gardens or Shipyard Plantation grounds from your private balcony or patio. All rooms also come appointed with an iHome docking station, a coffee maker and a small refrigerator. When your stomach starts to rumble, recent guests recommend sampling the delectable Lowcountry fare served at Heyward's Restaurant. If you'd prefer to dine outdoors, you can enjoy lighter fare and creative cocktails at Seacrest Terrace and Patio, or venture to Barley's Bar and Terrace for a quick bite. Ordering a-la-carte meals at Sweet Cane Bar and Grille is another dining option.  Apart from the tasty cuisine, previous visitors highlight the hotel staff's genuine Southern hospitality as a compelling reason to plan a future stay.
