This is probably our 10th stay at the Palm Grove Hotel in the last 3/4years and it still does not disappoint. We stay here because the rooms are cheaper, the beach is right there, the arcade across the street has the best breakfast ever, and the restaurant next door has a parmasean crusted flounder that is to die for, and then several shops, putt putt, and go karts within walking distance so there's no need to drive anywhere really. The Palm Grove is older and has greeted many hurricanes over the years which have helped with the wear and tear on her but they have updated the rooms since last year and they're a great place to stay. My only complaint is not having office staff on site, and the thin walls made for an interesting wake up alarm at 4am from the baby next door, turning the ac on drowned that out though and I went right back to sleep. We met David (the manager of housekeeping I believe) and he could not have been nicer to us, were a hot mess and locked ourselves out of our room and he graciously came to our rescue and let us in as well as swapped our towels out and had a mini chat with us about where he was from in Jamaica because my son liked his accent so much. All in all you get what you pay for and if you're expecting 5 star but pay a 2 star rate you won't enjoy it, we love the Palm Grove because we like saving money and being able to do more activities. I took 1 star away from what would be a 5 start due to the thin walls and no on-site office.

The room were were given and the ground of this hotel were disgusting! The room we received was not equitable to what was advertised and on this site. This was an excellent example of FALSE ADVERTISING. If you have any standards regarding hotel cleanliness, upkeep and sanitary living conditions, DO NOT STAY HERE! The room was akin to putting dirty mattress on an equally dirty floor in a abandoned home. This is with the inclusion of the homeless sleeping on the pool deck. The pool looked like dirty toilet water.

We are saddened to hear of your experience at our much loved Palm Grove. This location has been a favorite of our guests for several generations. We value your input and will share it with departmental leaders so that it may be used as we strive towards continual improvement. We hope to welcome you back, if not at Palm Grove perhaps at one of our hotels just 1/2 mile west.

We had made reservations for my mom's 71st birthday and this was our last weekend with our kids/grandbabies were leaving to go back to Texas. We when arrived it over 2 hours just to check in. The ladies in the office were just lost. Finally made it to the room and as the first of 3 grandbabies goes to the bathroom the door handle just comes off in thier hand. We were going to try and make the best of it but when they started to take a shower, there were NO SHOWER HANDLES!!!! That was it!!!! We called the office and no one has yet to return my call. How are you going to stay somewhere with 7 people and not shower!! And to make worst, when we went back to the office within just a couple of hours from checking in to ask for a refund, the ladies in the office were trying to check another family into this same hotel and told her that one of the windows had been busted out...would that be ok??? WOW!!!! Now, after being told we would receive a refund and shelled out even more money to stay at another hotel, they have not put in the refund. Here goes more time wastes that I should be enjoying more with my family. Dont let this happen to yours!!!! Stay away. The pics online are not this hotel!!!

First of all, happy belated birthday to your mom! We are glad that you chose to stay with us for such a joyous occasion as she ushered in her 71st year, but dismayed that your experience was horrible. It is truly not how we operate. We strive toward ensuring our guests experience EXCEEDS expectations, and have struggled with short staffing through this reopening during a pandemic. It is unacceptable that our staff overlooked something such as shower handles, and it goes without saying that such a basic expectation should not have been overlooked. We have shared your feedback with our new housekeeping and maintenance leadership and they will use it to ensure other guests do not have the same unfortunate experience as you did on this visit. Palm Grove has been loved and frequented by generations of travelers, and this review left us shaking or heads in shame. We hope to welcome you again in the future to demonstrate this is NOT the norm of how we operate.

I booked a room on 6/14/20 with Palm Grove and emailed them to cancel it 6/15/20. I never received a confirmation so I called 6/21/20 to make sure it was. I eventually got a person in the phone and they said it was canceled. 6/27/20 I was charged as a no show for the night!! I called 6/28/20 and finally got a person in the phone and they said it hasn’t been canceled and to contact manager. I emailed him and he never responded. Today is 7/1/20 and I’ve called 3 days straight and NO ANSWER!! How can a business operate this way??? I filed a dispute with my credit card and closed the account to avoid further charges. Please do not stay with this group of hotels!

DO NOT STAY HERE!! Unless you are flat broke and just don't care. Reserved a room for 8 people, got one for 6 instead. No running water in the room, was given another room with water then they wanted to charge for the other room as well as what was already rented. Then they run credit cards without any authorization for said room. Splurge and get a better place to stay other than here.

Thank you so much for your review. While we do not like to hear the negative side of things, it is appreciated when guests alert us to our shortcomings. Without an actual reservation to review we are going off of the dates of your review and your comments. It seems you were our guests during a brief time that several of our units were forced out of order due to an issue with water lines. We regret that this placed your larger unit unavailable and your experience with our location was not up to par. The credit card issue seems to have been a mis-understanding on our part... as we would not have expected you to pay for a room you were not using. Our sincerest apology for the mix-up and your unfortunate experience here at our beautiful beaches. We hope to welcome you back again to demonstrate our commitment to service of our guests~ at Palm Grove or another of our properties.
