We traveled with out 1 year old daughter. We aim for mid priced/value places in great natural settings, ie. willing to give up fancy amenities for great nature. While the rooms are a not fancy (we had a 1 bedroom cabin), the grounds make you feel like you are in nature, and while you have to cross a not overly... More

This is one of the best views from our beach accommodation. To wake up to the waves crashing on the beach was one of the best things. We stayed in B8 I would ask for 5-6 the next time. Reason for that would be to have no trees to block the view. We would say that all the staff from... More

This is a lovely place to stay. Small, friendly, charming, clean, safe. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We put our passports etc in the office, they were fine, in a locked back room. No problems at all... this is a wonderfully easy place to stay, it feels safe and relaxed and just ideal. Beach front cabins really are... More

Beautiful setting. Gardens are well kept with a variety of great plants. Beach nearby. The restaurant; good choice at breakfast. Evening meals were well presented and a good helping. There is a large store within walking distance, selling supplies if you plan on cooking. Other cafes etc are available. Bus service is regular in either direction; if you don't want... More

We had a great time at the Resort, we stayed in the 3 bedroom house. All the staff were very friendly and went out of there way to help us all the time. We will come back to Palm Grove, as it has everything that you need on the Island.

I had stayed at Palm Grove 11 years ago on my first trip to Raro and glad I stayed here again. My husband and I stayed at one of their rental properties The Palms which is just down the road from the resort. The property was basic but met all of our needs and is very reasonably priced which meant... More

The Bungalow was clean and there was a tiny backyard and covered deck. The staff were very helpful in helping to arrange activities and rentals. Breakfast was simple and filling. There was an abundance of fresh island fruit and some fruit that had been canned but only because it isn't native to the islands (pears). The beach is just a... More

The Palm Grove is a nice and quiet resort in the Cook Islands. We arrived in the morning after an overnight flight from Los Angeles, we had a brief wait for the bungalow and were sent to the breakfast buffet, which was a nice way to wait. After we ate, we were able to get into the bungalow. We had... More

I would have given it 5 stars if the owner wasn't rude to us when we arrived. Great location and even though we only had a garden bungalow we felt like we were right on the beach. The beach is nice and snorkelling is good. The free happy hour on Friday is a great perk and the restaurant wasn't bad... More

Our first trip to rarotonga ... collected from the airport and given the beautiful floral ei . Check in was easy .We stayed in b4 , a slightly disappointing experience as its quite dated , although entirely satisfactory . The stunning beachfront location more than made up for any minor issues we had .The only real issue is the lack... More
