We've stayed here two years in a row and love it more this year than last year. We loved waking up to the sunrise over the beach in our bedroom. We loved going to the beach and then swimming in the pool. The grounds are beautiful and our condo is fantastic. Everything is perfect. Simply perfect.

Doug weaver was great. He was available, personable, knowledgeable. The lessons have already payed off with lower scores and a more enjoyable golf experience. I look forward to returning to the resort and taking more lessons from Doug in 2015

When we stayed it was a great adventure. We had a great view of the ocean from are balcony. The rooms where very nice. I stayed at the waterfront hotel which is all the way down the right. Every morning we would go down the the beach. Also the have a little cookout area at the bottom of our suite.

We (3 family members) recently stayed in Water Oak Villas at Palmetto Dunes. First of all the resort is gorgeous! Beautifully landscaped, natural/forest of palms, oaks, etc throughout the resort and many lagoons. The resort is huge. We spent one day JUST riding around the resort on our bikes and the round trip was over 10 miles! Water Oak Villas... More

Palmetto Dunes is a beautiful spot to enjoy. Lots to do and great things to see. A definite highlight for my group of guys and myself is the service provided by a dedicated staff member Karen. She works at the restaurant at the George Fazio Golf Course and at the Halfway House at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course. We've... More

This place was big enough for the six of us but the room was very old looking. The bedding and kitchen and rooms need to be modernized. The pool was small. The walk to the beach was long and inconvenient. The room had some insects and spiders on it. Dunes Beach house's food lacked variety and had a lot of... More

We have rented at Palmetto Dunes before. 3 years we had such a great experience with the service that we didn't consider looking anywhere else... Oops.
