We have visited HHI for the past 12 years and stayed at many different locations. Palmetto dunes is by far our favorite. The grounds are immaculate and there are excellent restaurants within walking distance. Try Alexander's, Sante Fe Cafe, and Ruin Thai. You will not do any better on HHI. My husband recommends Oyster Reef, Arthur Hills at Palmetto Dunes, Palmetto Hall, and the Golden Bear at Indigo Run for golfing on the island. Have fun!

We love this resort. not only is there world class Tennis and Golf, but the people that they hire to welcome you are the best. Lauren helped my daughter with her summer homework assignment!
She went out of her way to make sure my daughter was able to relax by helping her fulfill a commitment to school. Thank you so much Lauren!!!

When I was a kid I went with my family here 4 or 5 times. We always chose Palmetto Dunes because it's a gated plantation close to the beach. Now, 10 years later we all made the trip back here to HHI and Palmetto Dunes and it's even better than I remember! The beach access we used was almost secluded compared to when we used to enter by the Marriott! This plantation offers privacy, safety, lagoons, golf courses and VERY close beach access! We wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else!

I first visited Palmetto Dunes as a kid and have coming back for over 30 years. Sometimes as a couple, sometimes for events, sometimes with the extended family. Always a wonderful place. We love to park the car and ride bikes all week-- even to other places on the island. the beach is wonderful any time of year. The tennis is always great on the clay courts and the instructors have always been awesome. Other favorite activities include canoeing on the canals and bike riding at night on the golf cart paths.

Best section of the Island. Close to everything, beaches not crowded, good for biking and walking, and the houses along the beach are beautiful.
