My boyfriend and I recently visited the Hibiscus Gardens resort after purchasing the Cudo deal and we had an amazing time. We were put into a studio apartment, which I was worried would be too small but was perfect for the two of us. The main bonus was that our balcony didn't go out onto the main landing, like the 1 or 2 bedroom apartments, so we had total privacy.
Our balcony didn't have any special view, but it was up high and there were lots of high lush plants outside that blocked everything and gave it a rainforest feel. The breakfast each morning is simple, we wouldn't have paid the $18 for it but it was included in the deal so it was good.
The room was clean and had everything we needed - microwave, bar fridge, plates, etc, but we ate out at the local restaurants 90% of the time.
Definitely the best feature of this hotel is the location. It is literally 200m away from the beach, 200m away from the main street and restaurants, and 200m away from the marina (where all the snorkelling tours leave from, so no need to book bus transfers). Based on the reviews I read before I left the manager can be quite disagreeable - we didn't have much interaction with him but from what we found he was fine, we mainly saw a young girl on reception (I think her name is Jodie) and she was very nice and helpful.
Overall, the location is extremely central, the hotel rooms and grounds are clean and well maintained (especially the lush rainforest feel they have created) and all the staff seemed lovely and helpful. Would definitely recommend to a friend!
