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.

How to Get There
lots of activities on site and concierge helped with outside activities. room was well equipped. great coffee in the store, good food and pina coladas at the pool restaurant. music and fire with s'mores in the evenings.
Weekend getaway with my husband. Had not been to Hilton Head in several years. Found the town to be clean with lots to offer...shopping, dining, and site seeing. The Omni was a fabulous place to stay for couples or families.
Stayed here for the first time while doing a SE states road trip. We arrived early, around 11am and was pleasantly surprised to have our room ready. Spacious, clean lovely room on the 5th floor that faced the pool and ocean. Bathroom was large with 2 sinks and in the closet had a safe, ironing board and iron. Kitchen area was large with a island and chairs, microwave, refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker and cabinets with some dishes and cups. Plenty of seating throughout the room with a nice large screen TV. We had 2 queen beds that were just right for us, not too soft or firm. The balcony had a table with 2 chairs.
The resort had everything we needed from what looked like a great steak house (we didn’t dine but will next time) to a coffee shop that served Peet’s coffee, breakfast sandwiches and everything in between. A small gift shop off the lobby had a nice selection of clothing and such. A bar is located inside close to the above mentioned which was nice as they have loads of TVs to watch whatever sport might be playing.
The pool area is spacious and very nicely laid out. Service poolside is spot on, never did we wait more than a minute for one of the very friendly staff to come by and take our drink order. We had lunch at the Buoy Bar (at the pool) and the food was excellent!!! Their cocktails are creative and very, very good!
All the staff from the front desk, to the valets, to housekeeping couldn’t have been nicer or friendlier.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Omni and can’t wait till we return!
Hotel front desk staff would not add my Omni member # to our reservation. Put me on hold every time I called the front desk (3 times in one day). This hotel needs renovations, especially the exterior. I am not impressed. Wifi sucks and cell phones get no reception inside the hotel. They do have nice fire pits. The spa is insanely overpriced. A pedicure is $70-$100. The pillows are the worst I’ve ever slept on. They played some really bad songs near the pool on the speakers on Saturday, such as Wind Beneath My Wings. The DJ needs some help!
This was our 2nd visit to this resort. We like the resort amenities and location on the beach. We had a good experience at the spa. It is a lovely beach to walk and enjoy! Our room was roomy and clean. Our only complaint was that there were too many dogs staying in the resort. We heard barking often and people were often walking dogs on the property, playground, hallways,etc.... some people had 2 or 3 dogs.
