This was our second year to vacation at Palmetto Dunes Ocean Front Resort. We had a great time and enjoyed ourselves immensely. There is much to do there from staying active to relaxing on the beach. Everything is so convenient. I will return.

2014 was the 3rd straight year that we have returned to Palmetto Dunes for our family vacation. So much have we enjoyed our previous visits that we persuaded additional family members to join us this year and they did. Needless to say-everyone had a marvelous time and we continue to use and appreciate the various amenities that the resort offers.... More

This year is our third visit to Palmetto Dunes. We have stayed in three different areas of the resort, St Andrews, The Mooring and Queens Grant. All have met or exceeded our expectations. Clean, comfortable and well-maintained, Palmetto Dunes has pretty beaches, golf, tennis and plenty of walking and biking trails. The Dune Buggy is a free service that will... More

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

Hilton Head is huge so there is enormous choice. Palmetto Dunes is a resort that has a range of accommodation to suit all types. The reservation people after a conversation with us and to determine what we were looking for and our budget sent us an email with 5 properties available for our dates. This was helpful as it meant... More
