A family resort designed to make lasting memories.

Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is located at the heart of Hilton Head Island, named the #1 Beach Town in the US by Parents Magazine. 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. The resort enjoys a well-earned reputation for creating unforgettable vacation experiences for the entire family. It’s no coincidence, as vacationers return year after year, many decide to make Palmetto Dunes their permanent residence.

From our guests

Amazing. One of the best meals my husband and I have had! Service is amazing and drinks are great too.
Great meal and great service. Meal included crab soup, blackened red snapper on Sea Pines red peas and seared scallops on pimento cheese grits. Had enjoyed takeout during pandemic but this was first indoor dining trip. Priced competitively with other high-end, fresh seafood establishments. Will dine here again.
Alexander's is one of the best, if not the best resturant on Hilton Head Island. The atmosphere is great, and the food is tremendous! Donna, our server is fantastic! She knows the menu, and describes the food perfectly. She is pleasant and attentive. We will be back and will ask for Donna!
Food was great. Service was incredible. GREAT EXPERIENCE A+++++
The service was outstanding as well as the food. What more could you want?
