We would like to thank everyone there for giving us such a wonderful holiday. We thought it looked impressive on the web page and in the brochures, but we could never have imagined in our wildest dreams just how wonderful it really was! - Helen and Keith, England

We want to thank you very much for a wonderful holiday. And special thanks to all of your staff who were always very helpful, wonderful and gracious. - Lynne and Bob, New Zealand

We have returned home to snowy Canada and are surfing your website to feel warm again. We loved our stay with you. All your staff were so friendly and kind, and our beachfront bungalow was superb. Whether it was sitting on the deck watching the lagoon or kayaking before breakfast, it was wonderful. Hope to see you all again. - Stella and Jim, Canada

We had a lovely time in your fantastic beachfront bungalow with the best view to the ocean, where the sea gave us good opportunity for snorkelling. When we lay on the deckchair under the palms, we felt, we were in Paradise. All your staff and receptionist were so friendly and we felt so happy. If it would not be the far from Germany, we would like to be back at once. Thanks to all of your staff. - Gertrud and Klaus, Germany

Your kindness and hospitality made our wedding a dream come true. Thank you – Köszönjük! - Csilla & Peter from Hungary

A VERY BIG THANK YOU to you and the staff at Palm Grove making our wedding a dream come true. It was much better than we expected and truly appreciate all your help in getting this done. We are looking forward to coming back and having our honeymoon at Palm Grove. We really fell in love with the place and hope for many more trips back. - Vishal and Jessie, New Zealand

Just wanted to send you a quick email to say thanks so much for the awesome time. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and we were really made to feel at home. It was the best way to start a marriage for Tracey and I and we both can’t wait to come back for another holiday. We will be recommending you to all our friends as the place to stay when they head to Rarotonga. Also a big hi to all the kitchen & bar staff, you all rock!! - Scott, New Zealand

We were again treated to a truly memorable time of relaxation. Our third trip to Palm Grove and we are as thrilled as we were the first time. Thank you to the management team of Nga and Joanne, the owners Betsy and Grant and the wonderful staff – Paula, Mata and Papa the groundsman. You should all be proud. We are extremely appreciative of the kind gestures that Nga made to add to the already welcoming atmosphere. Kia ora koutou katoa. Arohanui – Steve and Chris – New Zealand

Thanks to you all for making our most recent stay the best holiday we have had. Again it was a real neat experience, a lot of laughs and many more memories brought home for us to reflect on. We still both agree that it is the people that make Palm Grove a special place and that is why we return. Please ensure you pass on our thanks and comments to the rest of the team, the front office staff, the bar and restaurant team and all those in the background that make it all happen. You are a great bunch of people and your efforts, dedication and friendliness made a huge contribution to our awesome experience over the past couple of weeks. We’re already planning our next visit! - Mike and Maree, New Zealand

I just wanted to email back and say a big thank-you to all staff at Palm Grove for their excellent customer service during our stay last week. Everyone was so friendly and helpful which made our stay so fantastic. The accommodation itself was very comfortable and clean! A special thank-you to Mata and Paula who work at the restaurant who got us coconuts and were so nice to us! And also for organising the birthday cake for my mum. - Tracey, Australia

Thank you for a very enjoyable holiday- everything was to a high standard and the staff were helpful and friendly. - Sally and Alan, New Zealand

Thank you all for making our first holiday abroad perfect. All the staff should be highly commended for their friendly service and professionalism and of course that keen sense of humour. Miss you Ma'ta, Lidia, Nya. The Yellow Hibiscus Restaurant has excellent food and I recommend it to everyone. Especially the Sunday BBQ and Happy Hour. We will definitely be coming back. - Barb & Murray, Australia.

We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed your company. We always said we wouldn't go back anywhere that we have already been, but I know for sure WE WILL BE BACK! Say Hi and give big hugs to Mata and Paula and the rest of staff, let them know breakfast just hasn't been the same since we came home. We miss their smiling faces every morning. Thanks again for making our trip such a memorable one we had such a great time staying at Palm Grove and will highly recommend to others. - Sharon, Canada

Our favorite part about the Palm Grove was the great people who work there! Thank you so much! - Emily and Curtis, USA

We wanted to say thank you to you guys for a lovely, enjoyable holiday. You were great hosts (your Friday night happy hour has to be one of the best to be found anywhere!) We will certainly recommend Palm Grove to anyone we know who plans a visit to Rarotonga. It is our firm intention to return for another holiday at some point and we look forward to staying at Palm Grove. Thanks again for a lovely stay. - Jeremy, Val, Hamish, and Andrew, New Zealand

Just like to say thank you for a great holiday. The beach front bungalow was fantastic, 4 steps & you were on the beach. The ladies in the restaurant & bar were great fun, ready for a laugh any time of the day & night. We can’t wait to come back with the kids next time. - Mark & Kirsty New Zealand.

My new husband and I stayed at the Palm Grove for our Honeymoon. We had the best time ever and created amazing memories at the Palm Grove…. The Palm Grove Burger at the Yellow Hibiscus is the best EVER and I strongly recommend it! Beautiful beach out the front of the Palm Grove gave us the best snorkelling ever. Thank you to the warm and friendly staff at the Yellow Hibiscus who were always keen to share a laugh or two… - Francine, New Zealand

I would like to express my gratitude and excitement on discovering in my opinion Rarotonga’s best kept secret. Three girlfriends and I stayed at Palm Grove and on arrival I was, I have to admit a little skeptical as this was my 3rd visit to Rarotonga opting to stay at resorts previously, but to my delight I was completely blown away by the cleanliness, helpfulness and the friendliness of the staff at Palm Grove. - Carol, New Zealand
