The Sonesta Resort Hilton Head, named to Conde Nast Traveler's "Top Resorts in the South" (2018) is set on 11 acres of the Shipyard Plantation, with hammocks on the grounds and a casual but elegant vibe. It’s a great destination for outdoor activities -- the resort provides direct beach access and on-site bicycle rental (fees apply). Nearby water sports range from kayaking to charter fishing, and there are hundreds of tennis courts and over 40 golf courses on the island.

There are plenty of dining options on site, including Heyward’s Restaurant and Seacrest Terrace and Patio for small plates and live music. Happy hour is a regular feature at both of the resort's bars. If you feel like getting out and about, the cafés, snack shops and restaurants at Coligny Plaza shopping center are just a short, complimentary trolley ride away. Guests also have access to the 24-hour fitness center, full-service spa and the shuttle service that ferries guests around the Shipyard Plantation.

Guest rooms are contemporary and bright with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that lead out to a private balcony or patio. All rooms include flat-screen Smart TVs, Keurig coffee makers, refrigerators and complimentary high-speed Wi-FI.

Overall wonderful but the “extras”, drinks/food can run the cost of your stay up pretty quick. Which is true of most resorts.

Was truly amazing. Service was excellent from front desk check in to wait staff and the folks we encountered along the way. Everyone greeted us and said good morning. We loved the grounds , especially turtle beach and the turtle feedings.

My husband and I spent a couple days here, and everything was wonderful. Beautiful resort that we never wanted to leave. It was icing on the cake that breakfast was included with our Travelzoo deal. I also enjoyed the text messages I got from the resort that allowed me to easily ask for a paper outside our room and a later checkout.

Good location on the beach and near restaurants, etc. Room was fine, though view was mainly of the pool, not "ocean horizon" (had to go out on balcony to get view). Quite a bit of noise one night from a wedding reception below our room. Food on site was good and reasonably priced, though service a bit slow/absent at times (i.e. early breakfast). Pool was good and had plenty of space. Would have been nice to have a few more kid-friendly activities (i.e. movies by the pool on more nights, maybe a bonfire, etc.). Travelzoo discount was good and no trouble.
