This was our 8th trip to Palmetto Dunes. We selected Palmetto Dunes after a long stint of vacationing at Sea Island. Although Sea Island amenities better, the cost and the formailty were becoming suffocating. We have rented condo and homes at The Dunes and have never been disappointed. The last few years we have been in a five bedroom home... More

If you are a family with small children, be ready for the negative changes within Palmetto Dunes. The main pool used to have a kiddy pool years ago, but that was removed and now the main pool by the General Store is for the L.I.F.E. center use. The playgrounds are gone and you get the feeling this is becoming more... More

We spent 2 weeks at this location and loved it. It was on the beach and the grounds were beautiful. We stayed in Villamare and it was the nicest condo we ever stayed in. You can bike all around the property, go fishing, walking, swim or just relax.

Palmetto Dunes is so friendly. I enjoy a casual lunch at the general store - the best bbq and fried chicken mac and cheese on the island! You can easily bike and walk everywhere. The activities are diverse. I have fished with Stacie in the lagoon, played golf on the courses and taken classes with pro Doug Weaver, played tennis... More

Palmetto Dunes Plantation is definitely the place to stay while on Hilton Head Island. We enjoyed it three times so far each time renting a villa for our family. The golf courses are supposedly great here but we do not golf. We do enjoy tennis which is here a reason by itself to come. Each time we rent bikes from... More

Great 7 bedroom rental in the plantation. Rented through Goode Vacations. Beautiful home, pool and enjoyed walking through the Plantation. Dinner at Alexander's was excellent. Easily accommodated our group of 18!

While down for a long weekend, we discovered the bikes that belong to the unit we rented were in need of repair. David greeted us warmly and gave up two options. His referral to a local bike shop and directions were spot on, but they ha a two day wait, so returned to the PD Outfitters and he and Allen... More

We had stayed at Shipyard for our first two trips to HHI. For this last trip, we stayed at Palmetto Dunes. It has lots of nice qualities. We don't golf, so our review is based solely on non-golfing features, which I understand is a main reason why folks would come to Palmetto Dunes. We wanted to take advantage of the... More

We have visited HHI for the past 12 years and stayed at many different locations. Palmetto dunes is by far our favorite. The grounds are immaculate and there are excellent restaurants within walking distance. Try Alexander's, Sante Fe Cafe, and Ruin Thai. You will not do any better on HHI. My husband recommends Oyster Reef, Arthur Hills at Palmetto Dunes,... More
