We have just come back from another wonderful stay at beautiful Palm Grove. Joanne, Nga and all the staff were once again amazing. We stayed 9 nights in the Gardens and 5 nights in a Beach Front Unit. Both units were well appointed, fresh and clean. We had such a special time at Palm Grove, we ate most days at the Yellow Hibiscus Restaurant on site. The breakfasts were delicious. We enjoyed leisurely lunches and the Dinners and BBQ nights were outstanding. The staff at the restaurant were so cheerful and welcoming. Our rooms were cleaned daily and the ladies extremely helpful. The receptionist could not do enough for us. Nothing was a bother. We are looking forward to our next trip back, we have already started to make plans. Thank you to everyone at Palm Grove, we have come backhome to snow and wish we were back already. Thank you Joanne and Nga (a special thanks to Nga for taking Gordy to the League).

There is nothing better than Palm Grove. They offer everything you need for a relaxing South Seas vacation: grandiose small charming cottages are located right on the beach, free snorkel equipment, courteous staff and a well-organized reception that organizes everything from island sightseeing flights to deep sea fishing trips.

Cannot fault this fantastic place. Totally blown away by, firstly the welcome, then the service and of course the superb location. My wife and I stayed for 8 nights at the beach front studio (B5). We arrived at night and was kindly shown our accommodation which was across the road. This was a lovely surprise as there was a massive king size bed waiting to relax in. The mattress and pillows were the most comfortable we've ever slept in. There was plenty of space and was laid out nicely throughout the place. Next was the food and service from the main building. Breakfast was supplied which was nice and fresh. A cooked breakfast was available for a cheap price. Service of the staff was great and they were all very friendly. We had several evening meals there which we would highly recommend, especially attend the Sunday night BBQ. the cook there was brilliant. Best steak I've ever had. Cooked exactly as I ordered right the way through. Staff at the reception, Lexie (if spelt right) was the most pleasant and welcoming receptionist I've ever met. Full of information and a very polite young lady. The boss (Betsy) was also warm and welcoming. This is by no doubt the place to go. Book a beach front studio, just not too long as we are coming back again and again.

A very helpful agent put us on to this treasure as a suitable location for our destination wedding! Thanks to Leanne (in Sydney, the agent) we had the wedding I had dreamed of! Nothing was too much trouble for Joanne , our wedding organiser at Palm Grove! Numerous emails were sent back and forth before the big day with some of my last minute requests filled days before the event Joanne attended to all of them smiling through out! The Yellow Hibiscus restaurant (Mata) attended to our 20 guests with ease. The friendly and helpful staff from the desk, restaurant, transport to Joseph the groundsman were fantastic! A last minute request for a band to play at our wedding celebration meal was sorted with little grief (even though it was the duos night off) Tani and Rose entertained with great professionalism keeping our enthusiastic guests on the dance floor for hours! The wedding cake was beautiful, the decorations in the function room beautiful and the food was excellent! Many of our guests (family and friends) also stayed at Palm Grove and enjoyed the warm hospitality offered at this wonderful establishment . Small things such as transport to the hairdressers for hair and makeup were provided making the anxieties of the bride reduced ten -fold. We, the bride and groom stayed in bungalow 8 on the beach right in front of the location for our ceremony . The views were picture perfect, the room clean and spacious plus quiet and private! Our other guests had a point of contact to mingle with other guests and enjoy the perfect snorkelling at this location. Fishing excursions resulted in a fine catch by the groom to be and friends which the helpful restaurant staff prepared and provided as a meal for our 20 guests . I cannot speak highly enough of this resort and would recommend it to anyone seeking a memorable holiday in the South Pacific!

We stayed 8 nights in a Bungalow on the beach, opposite the main dining room/bar facilities but was a 2 minute walk away. The room was spacious with a huge bed and full cooking facility if needed . Hot showers with high pressure was a true bliss. Opened the ranch slider doors to an out door deck over looking the beautiful views. Great for an evening wine to relax on.Meals at the restaurant were nothing but exceptional!! A must is not to miss the Happy Hour night on a Friday & the BBQ Night held on a sunday. If you can eat the huge popular Steaks on offer you have done well !!. The staff are so friendly and go out of their way to make sure your stay is as comfortable as you want it to be. All snorkelling gear is free , along with a Daily breakfast of cereals/ fruit / toast/ tea/coffee. Rental cars & Scooters available also.
