My family and I visited last week for my daughter in law’s birthday and i can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed ourselves. Check in and all the staff at the front made check in and vallet seamless . My 4 year old granddaughter had us at the pool and it was so relaxing the pool manager Erica was so helpful and friendly even brought my daughter a mock cocktail for her birthday after finding out she was pregnant this was a perfect touch. We enjoyed the spa for a birthday treat and Marina gave me the best facial I’ve ever had . All around a fantastic family trip we will remember forever from the gorgeous bike rides to the wonderful dining, to the golf cart rides with Anthony that gave us great history with his perfect sense of humor . I couldn’t be happier at how are trip went . Highly recommend this property and will return again and again . Great family memories were made .

Alex, the waiter at the pool and Anthony at valet were both superlative. The Moreland oyster roast was spot on. However, I have to say we were underwhelmed overall. For Memorial Day weekend, we had access to one pool, one restaurant and one poolside bar. The concierge failed to respond to requests for dinner reservations and a driver. Front desk forgot to call valet. Pretty basic stuff. And the ice cream shop closed on Memorial Day for an Inn full of kids. C+ y'all.

Thank you for your visit to Montage Palmetto Bluff. We appreciate you complimenting our associates who excelled during your stay, and we look forward to sharing your kind words with Alex and Anthony. We value all feedback and realize that not all departments were able to excel in the experience we strive to deliver, and for that, I offer our sincere apologies. I'm happy to say that we now have additional shuttle drivers on staff, which has made our shuttle service more efficient and the oversight of the ice cream shop hours has been corrected. Your review will be shared with our Front Office Director for training purposes. I do hope we will have an opportunity to regain your favor.

First off, this property is absolutely stunning. Rooms are clean and large and the facilities are all excellent. I understand that we stayed there over a holiday weekend, but we have stayed at several Montage properties (Cabo and Big Sky) and the service at this one was by far the least consistent. I personally think the biggest breakdown is with the concierge. The concierge at all other Montage properties we stayed at (also at busy times) has been excellent. The concierge staff seemed confused, apathetic, and like they didn’t want to be there (particularly the manager). From telling us that breakfast reservations weren’t accepted at Octagon, to not knowing how we get the bikes on property. It was just surprising. The experience planner, Caroline and Ngaa at Octagon were just so incredibly kind. These two were much more the service and kindness we expected. I will say that there were certainly rude guests who I am sure had an impact on how the concierge treated folks (I would be upset too), but we weren’t one of those guests. I would certainly come back here, but perhaps communication can be better streamlined.

Thank you for taking the time to share your review of our Resort. We certainly appreciate your commendations of our associates, who demonstrated the service standards we strive to deliver. We will share your kind words with each of those managers. On the other hand, it's very disappointing to learn of the service and communication lapses you encountered. That is not the type of experience we want our guests to have, and I do apologize for missing the mark on such basic but essential service details. Your feedback is valued and will be used to focus on additional training. I do hope we will have an opportunity to welcome you back.

You have to realize the Montage does not want people like you that pay $1200 a night for a cottage. They now want $2400 a night with no change in service, not including meals. If you are not a millionaire, even though we make good money, you are not a person this hotel wants. We have stayed here for the past two years and are pleased with the service, but at more than double cost, this is a rip off. We stay at the luxury Broadmoor in Colorado every year and will now be staying at Sea Island, the sister property,in Georgia as well. I’ve been a member of a private club - a restaurant will not survive without public guests -this is a fact.

My husband and I travelled to Palmetto Bluff with our five month old daughter for my first Mother’s Day, and everyone we encountered at the Montage made us feel so welcome. I had a much needed relaxing spa treatment, every meal we had from breakfast to dinner was delicious, and our suite was so peaceful and absolutely stunning. We had the pleasure of dining at the River House, and our meal was incredible. It’s never easy dining out with a baby, and the entire staff was so accommodating and made us feel so welcome, especially our waiter Ted and Guy at the bar. We plan to make this an annual Mother’s Day tradition, and we can’t wait to return next year!

This was my first experience planning a corporate event at Montage Palmetto Bluff and everything was amazing. Thanks to Carrie Felix for the attention to detail before and during our event. Every time I asked Carrie for something she was able to fulfill that request (most of the time at the last minute). The last night we were there our server at our Team dinner was AMAZING! Syleshia knew immediately that we were a fun group and she just had us laughing during our whole meal! Thank you both Carrie and Syleshia for an outstanding event. I highly recommend Montage Palmetto Bluff for your event or family vacation.

Our family went to Montage Palmetto Bluff for Spring Break, and we found a gem that we can't wait to return to. The ambiance at the resort, coupled with the scenery, quality of the activities and, most importantly, the service make this a Must Do! We tried to do as much as possible, focused on experiences our girls hadn't had. The Experience Planners at MPB were instrumental in creating a tailor-made schedule for us. From horseback riding, to cycling, fishing, boating, nature walks, clay shooting and archery, MPB has a lot to offer! And the quality of the food was superb! Our stay was was made memorable by the staff at MPB. First and foremost, Firoze and the reception staff, in particular, Sheila, Dominique, Mary and Zulfira. From the moment we arrived to when we checked out, they catered to our every need and ask. At the Inn, Nancy and Catherine at planning were fantastic with our kids; our girls were excited to get all their activity badges. Catherine and Amber at the Spa pampered our girls for a manicure/pedicure whilst doing so much outdoors. Experience-wise, Captain Ryan and Leslie at Outside Palmetto Bluff gave us some fantastic tours. Jill Moore was amazing, giving us a nature walk that our girls won’t soon forget. Shannon gave our girls some great horseback riding lessons at the stables (we squeezed in more lessons than we had initially planned), and Garrison at the shooting range was all that you could hope for with novices. Culinary highlights for us were Octagon and River House (the latter of which had just opened when we visited). Octagon had great Southern cuisine and pretty incredible sushi (who knew!). Robert, the head host, and Gary, who waited on us, were fantastic. River House looks like it will be the go-to reservation for a special meal. The newly-opened steakhouse was in fine form, led by Damien, Rachel and PJ. We also couldn't ask more of Teddy, who waited on us. Last but not least, the gents at the Valet, namely Richard, Anthony and Zolan made us feel welcome each and every time we arrived and left the Inn. Looking forward to next year!

For the insanely high price, all in all not so good. Slow service, shabby room. Pleasant people and beautiful grounds. Had room service last night. The food was good not great. But could have been served with a better set up than just putting everything on the desk.

Yes, at $1,200 a night (for the least expensive room) you are going to expect a lot, but the Montage pulls it off. As soon as you pull into the property, and the 4 mile Oak laden drive you know you are somewhere special. The Inn is beautiful and the staff friendly. We were graciously upgraded to a one bedroom suite (as we had to wait till almost 5 o'clock for our room to be ready). The suite was absolutely stunning. It had a screened in porch that we just loved. It also had a luxurious tub, full bar and turn down service, which included sweets. Unfortunately, the closet had a leak, and got some water on out clothes. I did tell the staff about it, and I am sure it has been repaired. Catherine, at the concierge desk, was delightful. We wished to go into Bluffton, and Catherine offered many suggestions on where to eat, park and shop. We were also offered the use of one of the complimentary Cadillacs, which was pretty darn great. All the facilities including the pools and spas were gorgeous. I gave the hotel a four star review, due to the lack of restaurants, extra cost of activities and difficulties with scheduling golf, tennis, rides to airport (make sure you do so in advance) and of course the water damage to our clothes. Still, on the whole, I would recommend the Montage.

I traveled with my family (D.W. Legacy) to Montage Palmetto Bluff and it was a favorite among all of us. The location is unbelievably beautiful, the inn and rooms were wonderful, and the staff went above and beyond. They were kind, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, timely, and amazing. We had a big group and stay for 4 days and all of our interactions were very positive. Henderson and Desmond took care of us a few nights and were incredible? Very funny, kind, and made some mean drinks! Dominique welcomed us at the beginning of our stay and she was very professional and kind and knowledgeable! Benny and Lauren (?) from the pool were hard working, friendly, and great! Bill gave us a few cart rides and was friendly and funny and educated us about the area, which was great! Regine from Octagon was our server a couple times and she went above and beyond to meet our needs! She was always very sweet, helpful, professional, and fantastic! And Tilakaj (?) helped us with our bags at the end and gave us waters and hats and was very kind! Thank you to all the staff whose names I am forgetting! We really had the best time and would love to come back!!
