Palmetto Dunes’ three miles of sun-kissed Atlantic Ocean beachfront provide the perfect venue for three world-class golf courses, vacation rentals, a full-service marina, and an 11-mile lagoon system.

From our guests

Bellissimi campi da golf, attenzione agli Alligatori
Recommend it!
I’ve been coming to Palmetto Dunes for several years. Used the keyless check in process. Went smoothly. We golfed at Trent Jones, Arthur Hills and Fazio. Beautiful courses. Played Pickleball and did a tennis clinic. We also rented bikes and cycled everywhere. We ate in Shelter Cove a couple of nights, using the Shuttle which was handy except one night when we had to wait for about an hour so we took an Uber, but we were a large group. It was a busy night apparently. Otherwise we waited usually 5 minutes. Our rental was perfect for our group. It was a beautiful layout and private. Could have been a tad cleaner. I did call the front desk about some concerns however and they responded in record time. Palmetto Dunes is my favourite location on Hilton Head as it is an excellent location to several restaurants, its great tennis centre, its shuttle, proximity to grocery stores and pretty grounds. Also ALL the staff was very friendly.
Allison and Javier was incredible at Fazio. Great service
xavier and Allison will give you a 100 percent customer service
