We have been vacationing in Palmetto Dunes for over 20 years. We've had different accommodations depending on the size of our party. You can rent a one bedroom condo for your stay or homes with 7/8 bedrooms. The resort well appointed and is on the ocean, so for most the beach is a short walk away. The location is mid... More

This tradition has been going on since 2000 and we had our 9th year this year. We stay on the beach in Palmetto Dunes and smile every day ! Can't top the pool/beach combination.

This resort has so much to offer. Not only do they have a variety of oceanfront and oceanview accommodations, they have activities such as paddleboarding, surfing, golfing, kayaking, tennis and beautiful bike paths. We love that the Dunes House is there for a nice lunch and a refreshing drink while we are spending time at the beach. The lagoons are... More

The resort is lovely. We stayed at Queens grant villa. Recently renovated. Nicely done. Not too far from beach. Easy access with free shuttle. Didn't have to wait more an 10 minutes for the shuttle. My only complaint is the amount of bugs. Huge bugs. I could tell that they fumigated the villa because the bugs would die fairly quickly.... More

Hello, BrownieMD, Thank you for taking the time to post comments about your recent stay at Palmetto Dunes. From the information you provided, I wasn’t able to determine if the unit where you stayed was one that is managed by us, or if it is managed by an outside company. Regardless, I’ve come to understand – as a relatively new... More

We've been going to Hilton Head for about 14 years now, thanks to my sister owning a condo in Palmetto Dunes, Windsor II. It's a great plantation area. Has wonderful bike paths, the general store is a great convenience, bike rental, the golf course and plenty of great places to eat - you can bike or walk to the beach... More

Stayed at 315 Barrington Court. The entire plantation is beautiful and immaculately landscaped. Access to the beach was easy and close! Great place to ride bikes around. Would go back!

Need a few pointers or golf lessons? The staff at Palmetto Dunes is the best. They have a variety of clinics and lessons for any type of golfer. The ratio of staff to student is low so that there is plenty of individual attention. Monday evening (5pm) clinic is free.

My family and I have vacationed in Hilton Head for almost 15 years and we always play at least three rounds of golf during our stay. The Robert Trent Jones signature course is a must. Spectacular ocean views and always in great condition. Make sure you get an early tee time because it will get hot.

I have been to Palmetto Dunes Outfitters a few times and every time has been a great experience. David Runyon is very knowledgeable about kayaking which made my experience very enjoyable . I would highly recommend Palmetto Dunes to anyone, whether it be to kayak or go biking.
