    The rooms are so large, new, clean and quiet. When you are in your room, with the deck at the back it feels like you are in a rain forest. Very tranquil.

    Punga Grove EXCELLENT

    Punga Grove was better than expected, the rooms were huge and the kitchenette perfect. The cleanliness of the hotel was exceptional. To arrive and be greeted by such wonderful owners who went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable, nothing was a problem. If staying in Franz Josef I highly recommend a stay here...darren

    The hosts were extremely nice and accommodating, even providing us with umbrellas for our stay (it was very rainy).Their restaurant suggestions were excellent. Our refridgerator was leaking water, probably because the setting was off. Lovely place, well kept. I would definitely stay here again.
