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 (extra charge applies). 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 (steak, seafood and breakfast) 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 a five-minute drive away. There is also shuttle service that ferries guests around the Shipyard Plantation, a 24-hour fitness center, a spa and a child-friendly heated pool.

Contemporary rooms have carpeted floors and floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that lead out to a private patio or balcony. All rooms include flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffeemakers, refrigerators and the choice of two queen beds or one king with a pullout sofa. 

There is a $10 per-room, per-night resort fee, which covers self-parking, island-wide phone calls, Wi-Fi, access to pool/beach and fitness facilities and daily newspapers (on request).
