3/5

Paid extra for an ocean horizon view. We only saw the water on half the deck and only on the front half. What a waste of money!! There was a wedding reception outside with over 100 people below our 4th story room and it was very loud at 9:00 p.m. The resort view is very loud in general and un appealing. Didn’t know it would come with the pitiful ocean horizon view. Hotel is very skimpy with the coffee. 2 cups of regular coffee per room. 2 bottles of water in room on day 1 with a tag that says complimentary but pay attention to the replacement. They have the same tag but it says $4. They do provide cups and cold water in the lobby. Friday night buffet for $33 has pretty good tasting food.

4/5 Good

POSITIVES: Sonesta Hilton Head staff is top notch, from the front desk, to the bell hops, to the cleaners, bar tenders, and waiters/waitresses. The grounds are very well kept...landscaping is on-point, grass is nicely mowed, no trash laying around. The food was very good every time we ate at one of the hotel restaurants, as were the drinks. the $10 margarita must have had 4 shots of booze in it so no complaints. Also had good quality live music of one kind or another almost every night during our one week stay. NEGATIVES: For what you pay to stay here, the lodging facility itself is basically a decent hotel with very basic standard rooms that, while clean, are certainly nothing special, especially for around $700 per night for a 2 Queen bed room. There was a coffee maker and a small fridge but that's it......same as any low-midrange hotel. Plus you have to pay an extra $25 per day "fee" to get access to the pool and/or their ocean front. It turns into a money grab. They want to charge you $20 PER HOUR to rent one of their bicycles. They want to RENT you a chair with an umbrella to sit in by the beach. you have to "sign out" the towels they let you use by the pool. $5.00 for a tiny cup of fruit at the breakfast bar. We booked through Expedia and it was just under $4,000 for four of us to stay a week, including round trip airfare from Buffalo. Another $2,000 for off-resort food, entertainment (putt putt golf, etc), etc so about $6,000 total. Condo next time.

It's a lovely resort and a fabulous beach. The only pool was very dirty and the sides were covered with algae. We loved walking on the beach
