Booked this based on the pictures and assumed that reality would not live up to the pictures, but found that reality was better than the pictures. Terry & Gillian (the managers) were fantastic. They were friendly, helpful, provided us with some tips about the area, and kept the place incredibly clean. Location was excellent, walking distance to great restautants, beach... More

We had a wonderful, hospitable stay right on main beach - walked everywhere, easy walk to light rail, shopping & all attractions. Gillian & Terry are fantastic hosts - nothing too much trouble. Thank you!

We stay there lots and use it as our Beach House !!! We usually try for the ground floor G2 its a funky pad with no sea view but walk out from its private courtyard and you are on the beach or by the pool. Terry and Gillian manage the place with genuine friendliness. This is not an expensive place... More

This is my regular gold coast accomodation choice. the price is very reasonable, the rooms are small but well laid out. the best part however is the location - walk past the pool and you're right down on the beach. area is also close to Teddar - great food.

Read recent review and must say gripe taken by unhappy customer does not accord with my experience. Many smaller apartment blocks don't have airconditioning. Modern hotels have an auto shutdown of airconditioning if for or window left open. If that mechanism not available owners face high elec costs as tenants just go out leaving ac on all day. Fact is...

We recently had a stay at Hibiscus and were very impressed with the amazing views, the front access to the beach and the outstanding friendliness and attention given to us by Terry and Gillian, the Managers.

This hotel is NOT worth the price it charges! As the following photos etc will show, it's far from a good standard! It should be labelled CLEARLY that there is no air conditioning in the unit! It's something that is thought to be standard almost on the Gold Coast with the humidities and temperatures it can reach here! In its... More

We went there for a week during the school holiday. When we arrived I was disappointed with the size of the apartment and with the age of the building. There were roaches and dodgy plumbing which took some getting used to. There was no air conditioning so the nights were hot and slightly difficult. The 7 eleven just opposite shone... More

The place has lovely views of main beach and great front access to the beach as well. There is a lovely cafe across the road and a 7/11 which makes things convenient if you need something but do not want to go out. The rooms however are a little dated and our room had no air condition and no ceiling... More

We stayed here after Christmas in Room 802. Beautiful views. The unit was dated but a very comfortable unit. Plenty of room on the balcony. It is a shame there isn't a second toilet, but that probably increase the price. Terry and his wife were absolutely a gem to deal with. I would highly recommend this place and will be... More
