Guests have described Palm Grove Hotel as a real diamond in the rough. Although the hotel is an older one (built more than half a century ago), it offers guests excellent views of Panama City Beach and the ocean from the ocean view rooms; the rooms are large, spacious and immaculately clean.
Guests have reported that the staff here is very gracious, going over and above the call of duty to make guests' stays as enjoyable as possible. Service is very quick and problems are solved very efficiently with a minimum of fuss.
Great pool/pool area.
The hotel features a large and beautiful seasonal outdoor pool that is fun to swim in. The pool area is beautifully designed and a nice place to hang out with family and friends.
A common thread that runs in guests' reviews of Palm Grove Hotel is that it's a dated hotel that needs upgrades in many places to give it a fresh, modern look.
Guests have reported that the pictures depicting the hotel that are posted in its ads misrepresents the reality. Guests are therefore advised to pay more attention to the actual amenities listed as being available in the hotel rather than just relying on the pictures.
Guests have faulted the rooms which they say that though they are mostly clean, they look worn out with plenty of cracks on the floor and walls, moldy walls, and tiny balconies that barely fit two chairs.
