Wow. This is by far and away one of the best places we've ever stayed and we've stayed at the best world wide. First of all this place could not be more kid friendly. We left our little ones at home and vow to come back with them. The family pool/canoe club pool is the best and biggest so I... More

We just concluded a 5 night stay. I don't agree with the prior reviewer's "boring" comment. It is a peaceful, beautiful place to stay. The cottages are wonderful, as are the bikes you are given to get around. The restaurants are fine -- very good food. Staff incredibly gracious and helpful. Great golf course. We did leave the property a... More

This is a unique place, with more charm and character than nearly any other resort in North America. The cottages are over the top, and I'm not sure they could do anything to improve them. The rest of the resort is cool, but just not quite worth the exorbitant pricing. The restaurants are very nice, but both were quite stuffy.... More

Stayed 4 days early march. Truly extraordinary property with equally extraordinary staff and culture of great service performed in a highly competent manner without the false pomp one sees in pretentious style resorts. This place is real. All the services and facilities were fine. When one planned activity was cancelled for reasons beyond the inn's control, they made great efforts... More

Family friendly. Family friendly. Family friendly. Lie. Lie. Lie. They will take your money and resort fees, tell you again and again how family friendly they are and then NOT LET FAMILIES USE THE POOL! This is not a hard and fast rule though, as I was being escorted away today when my sleeping toddler and I were the ONLY... More

This property is spectacular! Our cottage was very large, with a fireplace and suana shower that was fantastic. Everything about our room was great - refrigerator, large dressing area, big comfy chairs facing the fireplace, large screened in patio, and wonderful bed linens that made you want to stay in bed all day! Bicycles for us to explore the property.... More

Stayed for 1 night and we will be back. The staff was amazing, the room was great. The only thing I think can be improved on is more dining options and more on the restaurant menus. They should also have a more reasonable place to eat if you just wasnt some quick casual food.

Where to start! I started looking at this place a few years ago when they first opened. We would constantly get brochures in the mail, but thought it was a little to pricey. We were looking for someplace to unwind after Christmas. We decided on Palmetto Bluff, We were not disappointed!!! From the moment we drove onto the property we... More
