This is our 8th trip to Palmetto Dunes. Have always rented a house. Clean, safe resort. Beautiful beach. Plenty of biking trails, tennis courts, casual fishing spots. Three golf courses on premises- two good are Robert Trent Jones and Fazio courses. Tend to be expensive, especially when paying for the foursome. Have recently been buying the Heritage package of multiple... More

Stayed at 755 Queens Grant condo for 5 days within the Palmetto dunes resort. The condo was well decorated and furnished with all of our needs and more. The location of the villa was conveniently located by the tennis courts, the general store, and the kayak/bike rental store. Palmetto dunes resort is across from Shelter Cove Harbour and a lot...

My extended family and I have vacationed on Hilton Head on/off for the last 15 years or so. Last three trips have been to Palmetto Dunes. PD is one of the larger plantations with a lot of activities from tennis, golf, and beach to kayak/bike rentals. Lodging can be hotel, condo, or house rental. Good restaurants on Plantation and tons... More

I outsmarted myself thinking this was a name brand resort, and I was disappointed. Had not been to HHI for years. Very crowded, mega traffic, overpriced at this resort in my estimation compared to other alternatives on this site so shop around. Tennis costs $30 an hour for a court compared to several alternatives where courts are included. The beaches... More

Just spent a week on HHI and rented a house in Palmetto Dunes. This is an extremely large gated community with a TON of amenities for adults and children. We rented bikes, hit the beach, played golf, and sat by the pool. There are extensive biking paths throughout the complex, which the kids loved. Really enjoyed the complex right across... More

We stayed for a week in Windsor Court North. Our condo was a 2 bedroom 2 bath on the 5th floor. It was very comfortable, nicely furnished and decorated with just about everything you would need for an extended stay. It was a great floor plan for a family with 1 or 2 kids. We had 2 balconies facing the... More

This is my 3rd year to visit Palmetto Dunes and my first to rent a condo. We have stayed in the Marriott the past two years. It is beautiful, but a condo rental this trip far exceeded my expectations. The 2 bedroom 2 bath condo was nicely updated and furnished with exquisite taste. Our expansive deck overlooking the beautiful Atlantic... More

This amazing resort is located in the middle of the island. Our unit was a 2 bedroom villa in the Water Oak complex which has a beautiful pool in a shaded area. It had minor maintenance problems that were handled promptly by the housekeeping staff. The resort had everything to make a great family vacation. Nice beach, bike trails and... More

Our first Hilton Head Island vacation destination-had a fantastic time! We had trouble checking in because hotels.com did not provide us with a unit number but a gentleman by the name of Antonio at the Village helped us out. Palmetto Dunes is a large community that is within walking/biking distance to the beach and shopping areas. They also provide a... More
