The Inn at Palmetto Bluff

The Inn at Palmetto Bluff Rating: 5.0 Pearls

This "inn" in Carolina Lowcountry, really more akin to a sprawling estate, provides a one-of-a-kind experience that uniquely blends southern history and almost otherworldly natural beauty: rivers, misty marshes, old oaks draped with wispy Spanish moss, and salty breezes. The main hotel building looks like a classic southern mansion, and the 50 Cottages and Cottage Suites are simultaneously homey and utterly luxurious, with working fireplaces, screen porches, and gorgeous bathrooms. The multi-bedroom Village Homes are also luxurious, but lack some of the nuances of the cottages. Guests can enjoy a range of recreational facilities, including golf, bicycling, tennis, croquet, kayaking, and swimming (in the two pools), and the luxury spa is highly acclaimed. It's not an overstatement to say that the Inn at Palmetto Bluff is one of the most special properties in the entire country.
Marina Inn at Grande Dunes

Marina Inn at Grande Dunes Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 200-room hotel is tucked away in a tranquil spot of the 2,200-acre Grande Dunes Resort. The adjacent marina can be viewed from some guest rooms, all of which have private terraces. Rooms are large, but cheesy touches like shell-shaped lamps make the decor seem dated. This upscale property features several stylish dining spots, a free-form pool complex with Jacuzzis, and a small, 24-hour fitness center with indoor pool. Free shuttle service is provided to a beach club, but those who want to lounge on the sand all day might want to consider hotels closer to the ocean.
Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island

Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island Rating: 4.0 Pearls

An extensive renovation completed in 2013 has added a swank, modern feel to this Sonesta Resort. The upscale property has plenty to offer, including several restaurants and an on-site spa, as well as children’s activities. The lovely heated pools are a highlight, as are the gorgeous grounds. But those guests looking forward to a beach vacation should note that this hotel is not right on the water, and beach chairs and umbrellas have to be rented for an extra fee.
Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort

Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This upscale resort has plenty of amenities, including several pools and a pretty private beach. However, many rooms are somewhat dated for a four-pearl property. The hotel is undergoing renovations that are expected to be finished in the spring of 2015. Until then, travelers might want to compare rates with the Sonesta Resort, which has more of a modern feel.
North Beach Plantation

North Beach Plantation Rating: 4.0 Pearls

North Beach Plantation is one of the few upscale properties in Myrtle Beach -- and it's arguably the best of the bunch. Configured as condos and townhouses, accommodations are impeccably neat and clean. Sizes range from one-bedroom condos to five-bedroom cottages, making this a convenient pick for groups of any size. A high-end spa, a famous Myrtle Beach restaurant, a beachfront location and multiple options for pools means there is plenty to do on the property. Just note that it's a 25-minute drive to the boardwalk; those who prefer a more central location may want to consider the Anderson Ocean Club & Spa.
The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa

The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

After extensive renovations completed in 2013, the Westin Hilton Head offers an ultra-luxurious, spa-like feel. This upscale resort features beautiful grounds with lots of places to lounge throughout, as well as airy interiors with chic furnishings. However, the long hallways at this 416-room property make for a bit of a hike to some rooms. Guests who prefer a shorter walk should request rooms by the elevators. The nearby Sonesta and Omni usually have cheaper rates, but the ocean view rooms are a bit nicer and the setting is a bit more posh at the Westin.
Dunes Village Resort

Dunes Village Resort Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Designed to appeal to kids and families, Dunes Village Resort is a 456-room, mid-range hotel on a wide stretch of beach with activities such as four water slides, a pirate ship-style playground, lazy river, indoor and outdoor pools, and lots of games. It’s located directly on Myrtle Beach and priced similarly to other nearby family-friendly properties, but decor and furnishings in the rooms (most with full kitchens and ocean-view balconies) could use an update, and the property charges a mandatory resort fee.
The Market Common Suites by ResortQuest

The Market Common Suites by ResortQuest Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This upper-middle-range property is located inside a planned urban village on the site of a former air force base, within walking distance of many shops and eateries. It has 81 spacious one- and two-bedroom suites and studios with contemporary decor, fully equipped kitchens, washer/dryer combos, and balconies. But there is no maid service and the property lacks a fitness center and pool. Also, you’ll have to drive to the beach and to any major attractions.
The Beach House Resort

The Beach House Resort Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Though it is part of the Holiday Inn chain, the Beach House Resort feels more like a boutique hotel. In early 2014, the hotel completed renovations to the lobby, opened a new restaurant, and redid some of the common areas. This upper-middle-range property is a good value compared to other nearby resorts, though the rooms could use a bit of freshening up. Guests who want a good look at the sea should note that rooms facing the ocean only offer a partial view obscured by trees and the pool area.
Island Vista Resort

Island Vista Resort Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 171-room Island Vista is a solid mid-range property located directly on the beach. Suites seem a bit outdated, with tube TVs and peachy floral bedspreads, but they are spacious and offer some great ocean views. In addition to a wide, clean beach, the resort features an attractive indoor/outdoor pool complex with Jacuzzis, a lazy river, and meandering pools.
