Palm Grove and Rara review

We loved Palm Grove and would definitely go back again, in fact we told management we would soon.
We rented a car for 5 days and saw as much of the island and its resorts as possible. This was my second trip to Rara but this time round, 20 years on, I saw so much more.
The people were great, the food was sumptuous, the island night was ok at Edgewater resort. We did find a few things to be really expensive but we didnt hold back by the same token.
I was not aware that our flight tickets did not include meal service so was a little disappointed but not a deal breaker in the end. All in all we had a great time :)
