The unit was very clean and the bed comfortable. The cleaning and maintenance staff were very friendly, nice people. The restaurant staff were the same and the food was great and reasonably priced. The office staff tended to be a bit humourless and the wifi almost nonexistant. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it

When we booked this through wotif the photos of this unit weren’t pictured via either palm grove website or wotif. When we arrived and were informed of the unit it was not at all what we intended. The feeling at the time was that we had been cheated, and false advertising forced us to believe something that wasnt, the unit is dated and right next to the road. We will not book through wotif again. However with this being said, Palm Grove does not deserve a bad rating, the unit was clean, facilities were great, location was great and service from staff was excellent. Wotif is entirely to blame.
