Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island

IMG_5181We just got back from my birthday trip to Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island!  It was a vacation we won’t ever forget!  We chose this resort because of how beautiful it looked and how much the resort had to offer (pools, spa, several restaurants, stunning grounds, right on the beach, activities, etc).

We checked in after lunch on a Monday, the kids thought the decorations in the lobby were amazing!IMG_4912

The reception desk told us the “Feed the Turtles” activity was getting ready to start. I knew our kids would love that so we went straight there.  Camden and Ella thought this was the coolest thing!

Then it was time to check out our room!!  The room was perfect for us, it was large, beautifully decorated, and very clean!  It had a mini fridge, safe, and lots of storage space! Random but the bathroom had the best smelling shower gel ever! I meant to take a picture to see if we could order some when we got home!AJ7_9260.jpg

Look at the view from our room! #paradiseIMG_4931

As soon as we got unpacked, it was time to go check out the pool! If you’ve been following me for a while, you know swimming is our thing!  Isn’t their main pool just gorgeous?Pool -- Zero Entry Pool -- Sonesta Resort Hilton Head IslandSweet Cane Bar and Brille (by pool, closer view) - Sonesta Resort Hilton...

Camden and Ella were SO happy to be here! Can you tell?IMG_4951IMG_E4949IMG_4941IMG_4946

I love zero entry pools like this.  As a mom of young kids, it makes me feel more secure!  It also had fountains that the kids loved to play in.


Our outgoing child, Camden made a new friend! I forget this ladies name but she decided Camden was the cutest thing ever and played with him for about a hour.  I kept checking to make sure she was ok and she said, “He just made my vacation!” This is a picture of them laying together, how adorable is this?!IMG_5001

We swam and swam until our stomachs were growling!  Then it was time to clean up for dinner.  I came back to our room to find the sweetest surprise from the hotel for my birthday! How nice is this?  Thanks so much, Sonesta!!


We ate at the premier restaurant at the hotel, Heyward’s Restaurant. IT WAS DELICIOUS!! IMG_E5016IMG_5018

Judd and I both had the filet mignon which just melted in our mouths. IMG_5020IMG_5019

For dessert, I had key lime pie and Judd had peanut cola cake. Both were AMAZING! I know I’m probably sounding repetitive, but the food was that good!!!


We finished the evening by walking around the resort and taking a stroll on the beach.Sonesta pondsIMG_5050IMG_5098IMG_5081IMG_5033IMG_5045

Look at how breathtaking this place is?sonesta at night

The next morning, we ate breakfast at the hotel!  The kids had the buffet, Judd got the Nutella pancakes, and I had the berry and yogurt parfait which was scrumptious!IMG_5113IMG_5114

Then it was time for my SPA APPOINTMENT! Ahh, I was so excited for this because I haven’t been to a spa since before we started trying to get pregnant with Camden and Ella, it’s been probably 4+ years!  I got the Relax Massage which is a full body massage.  It was 50 minutes of pure bliss!!


After, they took me to a relaxing room and put hot water on my feet, a hot pad on my neck and shoulders, and gave me a glass of fruit infused champagne!  Much needed mommy pampering!IMG_5123

I met Judd and the kiddos at the pool afterwards! IMG_5124

We were starving so we ordered lunch poolside, my kind of lunch…easy, relaxing, and delicious!!img_5170.jpgIMG_5130IMG_5136IMG_5172

We hung out by the pool for the next couple of hours. IMG_5425IMG_5204IMG_5216IMG_5217

At one point, Camden looked at me and said, “Mom! Nap on chair.”  He snuggled right up on me and fell instantly asleep! Ella on the other hand, wanted to go to the room to nap so Judd took her and they both took a little snooze.IMG_5232

An hour later, they were reunited! 😉


I can’t even handle their twin bond sometimes, it just melts me!IMG_5415IMG_5319

We swam until about dinner time and then we decided to clean up and head to Harbour Town. We had planned to go to this awesome seafood place, my bestie told me about but sadly as soon as we got there, there was a downpour for 1+ hours so we ate DQ in the car. L   If I had it to do all over again, we would have eaten dinner at the resort and then headed out once the storm passed over.

The storm stopped for about an hour, so we were able to walk around Harbour Town and watch the sunset! IMG_5466IMG_5450IMG_5445

The next day, we had planned to swim after breakfast but it looked like it was going to storm. IMG_5474

We ended up taking a final walk around the beautiful resort and then headed home.


A HUGE thanks to the Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island for hosting us! I don’t even have enough words to share how appreciative we are and how many wonderful things we have to say about this resort!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

We don’t usually go to the same place twice, but we will definitely be back. The Sonesta Resort Hilton Head felt like paradise! I also plan to check out the other Sonesta resorts as soon as possible. So…if you are looking for a vacation in paradise, check out the Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island.
