Power in Partnership
Palmera Vacation Club offers something for everyone on Hilton Head Island and beyond.
Travelers come to South Carolina’s Hilton Head Island for a little bit of everything: beaches, golf courses, biking trails, and more. Palmera Vacation Club (PVC)—a network of four resorts on the island—has turned its owners’ desire to have it all into a guiding principle. “We carefully crafted each element of Palmera Vacation Club with flexibility, openness, and excellence in mind,” says Dean Pierce, CEO of PVC. This recipe for success has helped earn PVC one of the industry’s highest honors: an uninterrupted string of RCI Gold Crown Resort® Awards across all four properties: Port O’Call, Coral Reef, Island Links, and Coral Sands.
Guests are eager to start soaking up the sun at these award-winning properties. If check-in is limited to the weekend at one of their four resorts on the island, owners can get a jump on their vacations at discounted rates at the nearby Park Lake Hotel & Suites. “This benefit is a way for an owner to start their vacation early,” Pierce says. “If check-in at the resort is on Sunday, they can book a hotel stay for the Friday and Saturday before.”
Owners are presented with a flurry of on-site activities as soon as they check in. Guests can splash around during “dive-in” movies at the pool, fill up at oyster roasts or during s’mores nights, and enjoy other entertainment. Fifty-eight percent of PVC’s units include three or more bedrooms, giving the resort the flexibility to serve large or multigenerational families and groups in a comfortable and cost-effective manner.
PVC works to enhance owners’ experiences beyond the resort as well. “We’ve formed relationships with local businesses that allow us to provide our guests with unforgettable experiences at amazing prices,” Pierce says. This includes access to premium golf and tennis facilities, outdoor adventures, and more. And thanks to the company’s affiliation with RCI, its owners can jet off to more than 100 countries around the world.
