This resort is stunning. It feels as if you've instantly gone back in time the minute you enter the grounds. The resort of beautiful and every detail is accounted for in the rooms.

This was my second visit to Montage at Palmetto Bluff. I was there last August before the new Inn opened. The scenery and stffr are amazing. I love the quiet and refined atmosphere. I took my mother there to celebrate her 80th birthday and we had a wonderful time. The Grace was out of service, but we took a boat...

This place is great for a family vacation, and dog friendly (well, sometimes). The good: One of the most peaceful, serene locations in the southern US. We take two family vacations a year, this place (4th coming up) and Four Seasons Costa Rica. The kids/dogs love this place. Friendly staff (and international, which we like), and always willing to help....

Strike 1 - We booked a cottage with a May river view only to find out the next day from our travel agent there was a mix up at the hotel and the cottages are sold out for the dates of our visit. So we settle for the Presidential Suite for the same price seemed like a good compromise. My...

Our room, the resort and the restaurants and the spa were all amazing. Everything is top notch. We arrived shortly after Hurricane Matthew and could hardly tell. One building had it's deck ripped off, but otherwise everything was in order! Love the local sampling they do over the campfire every night. Also, don't miss the s'mores, they have homemade marshmallows!

From the moment you enter the hotel's gates, you can see the effort put into maintaining such a beautiful landscape. Everything in the hotel is new, and they keep a uniform country club theme which is very tastefully put together. The staff is very friendly and healpful. Unlike other reviews, I found they were very quick and polite. The hotel...
