We stayed during Christmas holidays in 2018, for a week. Our stay was pleasant and enjoyable. The place is slightly away from crowded city center, yet commutable by bus, Auto and taxi. The rooms (Canal Family Rooms) are quite spacious with all amenities. They have in housed restaurant that serves Breakfast & Dinner for their Guests only and the food was tasty. There are no restaurants nearby by except a few roadside eat outs in walk-able distance. The staff were friendly and ready to assist in planning your tour activities. The serving of tea & coffee in the early morning from 6 am onwards was the most, welcoming one. Most of the sightseeing activities starts early morning and you should be ready by that time, if you miss, then you may not be able to cover all the places (particularly if the day happens to be a public holiday) due to crowd as per your tour itinerary. We would strongly recommend to visit either Jolly Buoy Island or Red Skin Island for best under water coral view through glass bottom boat.
General Tips: Most Common spoken language is Hindi and to a certain extent Tamil & Bengali. The local population is mostly Bengali's & Tamilians.
Excellent hospitality and care

Reached the resort on morning and there awaited great reception. The package we opted included six days and five nights that covered almost all places in and around Andaman. They arranged separate menu exclusively for us during the entire stay and the food was awesome. If we have the chance to visit Port Blair again we will definitely stay in this eco resort. It will be better if they provide laundry services along with other amenities. Other than that.. this place definitely is a 'Home away from home'.
Budget trip can be possible only with Mr. Sathya SAILEEN TOURS AND TRAVEL (Palm Grove Eco Resort )

We cannot thank Mr. Sathya - SAILEEN TOURS AND TRAVEL company enough for putting together the most wonderful and memorable vacation for us. From start to finish, we were constantly impressed with our itinerary and Vehicle arrangement. Every activity perfectly reflected our interests and needs and Sathya was always looking for ways to make the trip even more special and memorable. When people ask me how my vacation was I simply say "perfect".
Incredible food in Palm Grove Eco Resort and our trip planner (Sathya) was great about getting us to the best places. Food was delicious and had value for money. Most places do not serve good food so for anyone this place is a gem. The service was just incredible--probably the best we as a group has ever had--we have traveled in a group of 10 for years and there were so many things taken care of that we didnt expect--it was WOW!!
Advantage: Sathya take a personal approach with their customers and go the extra mile to make you a personal experience. They took each of our requests into account and provided good options. We added activities and changed our transport while on the trip and they made these changes quickly and accurately allowing us the freedom to continue our vacation and add additional activities as we saw fit. Overall a well-planned and enjoyable trip. I recommend their services without reservation.
I don't think we have ever had a vacation, and we take many, that was as amazing as this and went so smoothly. We could not have asked for better. Everything exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much to our planner for making our holiday the best!

We were there for 4-5 days as part of a vacation. We enjoyed our stay and faced no troubles and had a great time at Andaman.
Friendly and responsive staff, provided us packed breakfast at 5 AM on multiple days
Room amenities while not great (basic), were sufficient for us
Tasty food from their own kitchen
Spacious rooms, cleaned everyday w/fresh towels
Well networked with other support operators - cabs, scuba operators, travel coordinators etc. This is important if you want to have a good fulfilling visit.
Eco-friendly and close to nature ambiance - lots of trees and greenery and a few pet dogs and cats.
We expected a few more amenities. Eg more space for placing lotions and creams in bathroom, kettle/ coffee maker, storage / cup boards, bigger TV etc. But in line with budget venues. So not much of a disappointment
Rooms not fully noise insulated. We could hear TV noise from next room
No eating spots nearby within walking distance
No formal restaurant but they have a dining hall arrangement; so don't expect a lot of customized attention or gourmet food options
Considering that when you visit Andaman you are mostly outside from 6 AM to 6 PM, this hotel provides all basic amenities for a good stay and rest and food. The hotel is well suited for travelers who are looking for functional stay and services.
