This was my first trip to Rarotonga and the Palm Grove was a wonderful place to stay! I spent 11 nights in one of the beach units and 1 night in the garden, both units were extremely nice and have everything one needs for a comfortable, pleasent stay.
Words can't describe the lovely beaches and crystal clear water!
The Palm Grove has a wonderful management team and superb staff, I have never been to a place where the people were more pleasent and personable!
The Yellow Hibiscus is a very nice resteraunt, had the catch of the day several times and they were kind enough to even prepare my fish brought back from my fishing charter! Tropical breakfast in the mornings were a great way to start the day with a good variety of fresh fruits, cereal, juices and coffee. Friday night Happy Hour with entertainment is not to be missed!
I don't drive but the bus service is right in front of the hotel so there is really no issue getting anywhere you need to go on the island.
This was one of the best holidays I've ever taken and I am looking forward to planning my next visit to The Palm Grove!
