We 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!
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!
Look at the view from our room! #paradise
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?
They also have this other gorgeous that would be really relaxing to hang out at!
Camden and Ella were SO happy to be here! Can you tell?
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?!
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!!
Judd and I both had the filet mignon which just melted in our mouths.
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.
Look at how breathtaking this place is?
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!
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!
I met Judd and the kiddos at the pool afterwards!
We were starving so we ordered lunch poolside, my kind of lunch…easy, relaxing, and delicious!!
We hung out by the pool for the next couple of hours.
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.
An hour later, they were reunited! 😉
I can’t even handle their twin bond sometimes, it just melts me!
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!
The next day, we had planned to swim after breakfast but it looked like it was going to storm.
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.
