Located in the Palmetto Dunes neighborhood of Hilton Head, this 323-room resort offers private access to sugar-white sand and is fresh off a $17 million renovation in 2014. The rooms and suites are extremely spacious (550 square feet, minimum) and feature balconies overlooking the courtyard or Atlantic Ocean, kitchenettes and tropical decor. Guests can play beach volleyball, catch some rays by one of three oceaniview pools, take a soak in one of the Jacuzzis or relax in the full-service spa and salon. For kids there’s a playground, splash zone, arts and crafts, outdoor giant chess and ping-pong. Adults can sip a Cosmo at the trendy XO Lounge or a casual beer at the Buoy Bar. The highly acclaimed restaurant HH Prime serves hearty dinner entrees such as beef medallions with cherry chutney, and sweet potato ravioli with mushrooms and spinach.
In the Area
Palmetto Dunes is home to 11 miles of lagoon, making it ideal for kayaking and canoeing. Hilton Head Outfitters rents equipment and also provides fishing charters, bike rentals and surfing lessons. For golfers, Palmetto Dunes Golf Club is just a stone’s throw from the resort and has three championship courses. Families can check out the Sandbox, an interactive children’s museum, or the Coastal Discovery Museum to learn about the natural history and cultural heritage of the region.

How to Get There
Awesome experience. Great place to turn "50"! Loved the adult pool and view of our room. The breakfast was excellent. The entire staff is friendly and makes you feel welcome. Stephanie K ensured our room was above expectations.
A very nice property in HH have stayed there before and have been very pleased everytime. Such a great location on the beach! Very good for family and for couples.Plenty of pools plenty of beach for everyone.
My husband and I had the most amazing time ever! You never need to leave the premises-everything is beyond perfect (room, food, atmosphere...) It Is an experience we will never forget, mainly because of the people who work there. EVERYONE went above and beyond but we were very lucky and blessed to have to have gotten to know Maxine and Roxanne (astounding towel art), Shawna, ShanaKay and Keisha (so many laughs at pool) and Dwayne (awesome service HH Prime). They were all so wonderful and they made our trip that more special! Special thanks to Ace, the manager who made it all possible. Thank you so much!! Jeff and Laura Williams-Chicago Illinois
We stayed here for a couples weekend away from the kids. The adult pool was fantastic, as was our service there everyday! There was live music with a great musician in the evenings near the fire pits. It was such a great atmosphere. Although our kids weren't with us, we were impressed with all of the kids' activities and will definitely go back with them. We had a Courtyard view room, since there were no oceanfront rooms available when we booked. It was still a fantastic view of the ocean! And we absolutely loved that we could hear the musician playing as we were getting ready for dinner. The hotel could use an upgrade, and is possibly a bit overpriced compared with other updated Omni hotels we've stayed in, but still a nice place.
We would likely skip the hotel restaurant for breakfast next time. The hostess working Friday morning (7/13) acted as if we were troubling her by arriving and asking to be seated. She never greeted us or even smiled. The food was just average or below, with the exception of the made to order egg bowl. The biscuits make McDonald's biscuits look like high end gourmet. The pancakes were dry and crumbly. We went both mornings, thinking the first morning was just a fluke. Nope. It was poor both days. The first day, our server was at least friendly and attentive. The second day, our server never came back after bringing our coffee until she brought the bill. Speaking of coffee, at a time when cold brew coffee is quite popular, one would think they would provide this offering. Our waitress informed us that they do not, but that they could pour hot coffee over ice. It seems this partiular Omni does not hire employees who realize that people are paying a premium and expect premium level service. Although there were disappointing aspects related to service and food at the restaurant, we were otherwise pleased with our stay and would definitely return.
Omni Resort Hilton Head Island was a beautiful and relaxing getaway. It was fantastic from the beach location, pool and pool bar, to hhprime their great steakhouse restaurant. The staff was totally friendly and service was excellent from check in to check out and all things in between.
