Beach towels


We usually stay in the Hibiscus Lodge and they do not provide beach towels. We are a family of five and to bring five beach towels from Melbourne would take up a whole suitcase. One year I hired them but I have been told this is no longer offered. It is a small issue I know but really frustrating. I don't want to take a tiny bathroom towel to the beach. What do others do?

Do you always stay in the same apartment at hibiscus? I was recently researching accom for our next holiday up there and noticed a couple of apartments that do offer beach towels as well as bath towels. one i remember was hibiscus 208 - in one of the photos they showed the towels embroidered with apartment name & number! So if you're open to other apartments in the hibiscus complex it could be an option.

I think it's a great selling point for holiday lets up there, more ought to do it!

Yes it does depend on who the apartment owners contract their cleaning too.. Some companies on the island now supply beach towels as part of the linen service ...

I guess if you really like the apartment then you may need to use one of your bags to take the towels or else buy 5 of the souvenir ones available.. Probably not much dearer than hiring them .. The gift shop nearest the mini golf has nice beach towels or else they did a few months ago
