Great resort

Noise from adjoining room
We were originally put in an adjoining room (with a door separating the two rooms) but discovered that we could hear EVERY sound and movement from the couple next to us. It was incredibly distracting and though we tried to go to sleep, we couldn't. The staff at the Sonesta was beyond helpful - we called down and within an half an hour we had moved to a different, quieter room, which was ultimately wonderful. But it appears that the staff was aware of the sound issue in the adjoining room - "oh we know, those rooms are really bad" is what we were told when we initially complained. So why were we put in that room to begin with? Also, I paid extra for a poolside view, and when we got moved, our view changed to the parking lot - so I paid extra for absolutely nothing. Lovely resort, but I cannot recommend it because of that adjoining room situation, as there was no way to insist we not get an adjoining room.

Golf and relaxation getaway.
We came for a few day getaway husband golfed I relaxed with a book or two. We enjoyed the beach walks and cannot say enough about the friendliness of the people in the Hilton Head community. There was a conference going on when we arrived so the first 2 days wed/thurs were much different feel then the next 2 days. We definitely preferred the less busy days. Best to have a rental car for exploring the island and the different plantations. I really have nothing to say negative being as we were able to enjoy our time there if I were to go again I would get the same king corner suite but ask for a room with a pool or water view our room 2067 was unfortunately not ideal for sitting on the patio and enjoying the view. But we were still able to just go to the pool area and grounds and enjoy the resort. The spa was very nice I went in for much needed nail treatment from damage incurred by gel manicures. The spa technician I had Alanis was extremely helpful and did a good job in getting my nails back to healthy. I recommend the spa at Sonesta resort the prices are very reasonable and the manager there is very helpful in getting you the treatment you are looking for.
