This is the second year we've rented a home here for the Memorial Day weekend, and we've been pleased. There was a small issue with the air conditioner, and staff was there quickly, took care of everything, and even brought us box fans to help cool the house down faster. They make sure you have everything you need, and all... More

Our favorite place to stay in Hilton Head. Villas are great. The community is excellent as everything you need is within waking distance of the plantation. The beach is excellent and maintained well. Will continue staying in Palmetto when in Hilton Head.

We were so happy to that we chose Palmetto Dunes for our first visit to Hilton Head. Stayed in the Hickory Cove villas. Less than 5 minute walk to the beach, along a quiet road and a well-maintained path. Beach was beautiful - pristine, uncrowded (away from the hotels and Dunes House), stunning. Convenient location with Kroger, gas, restaurants nearby... More

We spent much time looking for a place to vacation as a family. Palmetto Dunes was a little pricey, but we'll worth it. The landscape was beautiful. ...beach within walking distance. Bike rental highly suggested. Golf courses available as well as canoe and paddle boat rentals. I was surprised to find that the general store prices were actually lower in... More

We just spent a wonderful 3-night stay in Palmetto Dunes (Queens Grant)... Our accommodations were perfect! We had plenty of room for 5 of us in a 2-bedroom villa, the kitchen was fully equipped (including washer/dryer), and the sitting area was comfortable. The only downside is that we had only one bathroom to be shared by five of us. Check-in... More

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.

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
