Room was lovely, staff very friendly and helpful. Lovely beach. Don't miss the Sunday night BBQ dinner it was great. We had a garden room and it was peaceful and quite. Pool looked great but we didn't try it at the beach was fantastic.

My wife and I stayed at Palm Grove 2 nights in the garden villa and 6 nights in the Beachfront bungalow and we were blown away by the amazing place and facilities they have. not only that but also the staff in the resort and the restaurant are 100 % at your service they are friendly and they do really take pride of the service they provide and it shows. Thank you so much we will definitely be staying there again as we found a home away from home!!!

Our brief to our travel agent was spacious beach front accommodation within a resort yet fully self contained. She nailed it with Palm Grove. We stayed in the beach front villa which had everything we needed and was well maintained, clean, quiet and private. We had the security of being in a resort yet had our own space. The beds were very comfy, the kitchen well equipped and we had our own barbeque and washing machine. Perfect location 20 minutes from the airport on the Southern Coast and away from the hustle and bustle of Muri. Stunning beach for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking with good quality kayaks provided. 5 minutes walk to the Wigmores Superstore and short drive to many activities. We immediately relaxed and felt at home. Lovely buffet breakfast each morning and lunch and dinner available at the onsite Yellow Hibiscus Restaurant. The Sunday night barbeque is not to be missed. We loved how Rarotonga catered well for tourists yet maintained its own integrity. Thank you so much for our best holiday ever.
