We loved Palm Grove, our Garden Studio unit was perfect for us (two adults and one child). It had all that we needed and more. The pool was on our doorstep with the lovely safe beach across the road which is perfect for snorkeling and kayaking. The Yellow Hibiscus Restaurant has lovely food and excellent staff. I recommend Friday Night... More

We were a little hesitant about this property at first. It is smaller than the resorts we normally stay at but extremely well looked after. Our beach bungalow was not quite like the brochure pictures which exaggerate the size but was fine and located on a beautiful stretch of beach. The restaurant on the property served very good food. There... More

We have just had a week at Palm Grove and enjoyed it very much. We had an ocean side bungalow and this accommodation was way above our expectation. The unit was always cleaned in the morning and towels changed. The bathroom products, shampoo, conditioner and moisture lotion were topped up everyday. The bungalow is air conditioned if you want that,... More

Just left yesterday after a five night stay, and we already miss it! What a lovely, small , friendly hotel. Situated on a nice, quiet part of the island, with a spectacular beach! The staff were so nice, a very laid back place. The beds were incredibly comfortable, wish I could've taken it home. We had the newer garden bungalow,... More

Our family, my sister in law and her family as well as my mother and father in law just returned home from staying at Palm Grove for two weeks over Christmas. I was lucky enough to get to stay just down the street at Tupe's Beach House with my wife and 2 kids. The house is a small 2 bedroom... More

We really enjoyed staying here as Palm Grove is away from the more touristy areas but still very handy to everything. The private beach is beautiful (with great snorkelling), and you can choose whether you stay right on it or in the main complex over the road where we had a very spacious, clean, two bedroom motel unit which included...

The house we stayed in wasn't one of the rustic bungalos, but it was clean, and comfortable. For a family of 4, with 9 and 11 year olds, we found the location to be ideal - the grounds were nicely kept and beautiful; the beach was beautiful and we often had it to ourselves; the pool was small but clean...

I stayed 5 nights at Palm Grove in a Beachfront bungalow. The bungalow was lovely and was right on the beach. There is a comfortable bed, shower, toiletries (although I would recommend bringing your own hair conditioner). There is a fridge, microwave, toaster, cutlery and dishes. *don't leave the fridge ajar-or you will find it filled with ants-don't leave any... More

I spent 2 weeks at the Palm Gove in Rarotonga in the Cook Islands in October. We stayed in one of the beachfront studios which is pictures above. They were first class 800 sq. ft room with a full kitchen and giant shower bathroom. The deck provided a perfect place for relaxing to watch the sunset or enjoying a meal.... More
