This was our first time staying in Palmetto Dunes and we were not disappointed! Other than a hiccup with the property management company (our package was not waiting when we arrived, but was quickly resolved), our stay was great! Our condo i Andrews Common, was very nicely appointed and seemed to have been recently remodeled. The bed was very comfortable... More

Right smack on the ocean with a large delightful balcony, the villa has 3 bedrooms and 4 baths on three floors. There's no waiting to use... More

My whole family loved this place so much that it is definitely on the list of places to return to. I was very surprised to find the area so lush and tropical. In fact you really did not even know that you were at an east coast ocean resort until you went to the beach. Not the typical beach town... More

Palmetto Dunes is a beautiful, well-maintained resort. The unit we stayed in was beautifully furnished, however it was not well maintained. It was in need of a good cleaning. The furniture was torn and fabric was stained. The shower heads in both bathrooms were very old and did not work properly and the water barely came out. The tvs were... More

A couple of years ago, my husband and I decided to take up golf. We wanted to make sure to get the right instructions to enjoy the game more fully. We took lessons from Doug Weaver for the Short Game I and Short Game II. It was totally worth it! Mind you that we were both beginners and had trouble... More

I love Palmetto Dunes, it is beautiful and perfect. i got married there at the Dunes House (it was gorgeous and perfect) and I stayed at 5 Beach Villas with my friends and bridesmaids. Perfect location, it was absolutely gorgeous. Right on the beach and close enough to the Dunes house that i walked to my wedding in my dress.

Condo was fine it had all the right appliances and fully HVAC needed in the hot and humid South Carolina, very close to the beach and shopping malls. Ideal for a golfing trip or family holiday, bicycles can be rented at the general store on site.

This was our 5th annual tennis trip to Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort in Hilton Head. We get 2 1/2 hours of tennis pro instruction per day for three days (7 1/2 hours total); we always get Tapi and Glenn as our pros. On one court we work on mechanics and on the other court we do strategy. In the afternoon,... More
