We were looking for a special place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. This was just a perfect spot. Service, food, location, pool, golf facilities, and our cottage were all outstanding. You seem a million miles away from everything....yet only a 20 minute ride to Hilton Head or 35 minutes to Savannah. This is a hidden gem of a luxury... More

I rarely write a review in the middle of my stay, but I am so surprised by our issues here based on everyone else's reviews, I had to write. 1. First lets start with check in - bellmen were great but the front desk service didn't match this. When I asked about the services we had the response back was... More

Amazing setting, specially beautiful property, great service, food and activities. Rooms are spectacular. Good and varied selection of southern food. Ran with trailing dolphins, jumped caymans in forest paths, and skirted turtles. Came for a conference regretted not bringing my family.

We arrived to the hotel during a rainstorm, but even the weather that first day did not detract from the beauty of the location. We stayed in cottage 28 on the river side. Loved the room interiors, the amazing soaking tub, and big steam shower. However sitting on the screened porch in late afternoon, with a cocktail, reading Garden and... More

We had the most wonderful time at the Inn at Palmetto Bluff! I would love to go back and hope to make it a yearly trip. You do pay for the experience, but I believe it was worth it. The food at all of the restaurants as well as the in room dining was superb! We got a package through... More

The Inn, cottages, amenities and general service is impeccable. However, the dining experiences at the Canoe Club, River House and Buffalo's were all disasters. Service non-existing at Canoe Club and Buffalo's. Food less than mediocre at River House. Orders got messed up repeatedly and the bill never corrected at both Canoe Club and Buffalo's. We will go back but go... More

Wow! I liked it so much that I went twice in six weeks and now I am buying a home there! It is simply that great. The people that worked there actually remembered me from my first trip. The cottages are amazing, but if you need more space then rent a house. Whatever you do make sure you get yourself... More

Came here for a business retreat and had a great time! The cottage was amazing, with luxurious bed, soft sheets, marbled bathroom with steam, fireplace, terrace and great view. I saw some alligators, lizards and some other weird animals. I'm not a very outdoorsy kind of gal so I didn't care much for it and I was here on business.... More

We had a great 3 nights here in a river view cottage. We ate at the Canoe Club and River House and the porch and enjoyed all of them. I would definitely recommend the mimosas on the river trip on the yacht on Sunday, we had the boat to ourselves and saw lots of Dolphins. The new hotel will take... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely stay at one of their luxurious cottages. We dined at the River House Restaurant- amazing!! And had delicious brunch at Buffalos. We lounged in our cottage for most days. Not only did we feel relaxed but the staff made us feel like royalty. Staff member Alex, gave us a fabulous tour of the... More
