If you stay anywhere else you are silly. I have stayed in others at luganville and they don't compare in value and location. As for the owners, well words do not describe there hospitality, kindness and care for there guests. the room was spacious, clean and everything we needed. A definite must for anyone needing accommodation in luganville.

A friend of mine recommended the Hibiscus Motel to me. It is located on a side road, close to everything in Luganville (which is small anyway). The rooms are new, clean and bright. Hot water in the bathroom, little kitchenette with a fridge (!) in the room, wifi is available for free in the communal area - great spot. The only drawback is that the beds are rather firm, but still comfortable (and the night is so cheap you cannot complain).

Lois and Marie France, the owners, are absolutely amazing. They are very friendly and helpful - we almost got stuck because the rental agency made a mistake with our car reservation, and Lois sorted everything out. We ended up with a bigger car for the same price thanks to him!

Recommended for anyone who wants to stay in Luganville!

If you are looking for somewhere friendly, sociable, clean, convenient AND affordable to stay in Luganville then Hibiscus is just the right place for you.

I stayed here for 6 weeks from January to February 2012 whilst doing my medical elective in the local hospital. I can honestly say that staying at Hibiscus played a huge part in making my trip as perfect as it was. It gives me great pleasure to write this review in retrospect as it's a chance to recall all the wonderful moments i had at Hibiscus with my friends, Marie and Lois (the lovely owners) and the other travellers we befriended whilst staying there.

There were three of us sharing a spacious room (with three single beds) which had a fan, an ensuite bathroom, a mini kitchenette for cooking (which means you can save a fortune on eating out if you are staying for a long time), a small dining table with stools and a large bookcase. The rooms are cleaned daily and are kept spotless. Marie will also offer to do your laundry for you every few days. We had access to free wifi and a beautiful common area with purple picnic tables which were the social hub of the motel. Many evenings we would eat dinner together outside or just gather around, drinking and chatting.

The motel is situated in town, on a quiet street off of the main street, a convenient 5-10 minutes walk from all amenities (e.g. shops, cafes, kava bar, market) and 15 minute walk (uphill) to the hospital. We felt very secure the whole time we stayed there as Marie locks up around 9.30pm every night (although you have your own key to the gate for if you come back late) and she and Lois are always keeping a close eye on the rooms.

Ultimately, it is the owners, Marie and Lois, who made the entire experience of staying at Hibiscus as fantastic as it was! They are the friendliest, most helpful and most fun people you will meet in Luganville! They go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay in Santo, whether that is helping you to book trips and rides, showing you how to cook local dishes, setting up the barbecue at last minute notice so you can whip up a feast with the fresh ingredients you bought from the market, teaching you how to open a coconut with a bush knife and joining in with the parties and gossip. I cannot thank Marie enough for how much she looked after us and all the fun she provided!!

They also have a very friendly, well-behaved dog called Tarzan.

All of this for a bargainous price (comparable with all the much more basic motels in Luganville)!!! You couldn't ask for more!

Room Tip: The rooms are also suitable for couples as they will be happy to push the single beds together to ma...

Stayed here for 6 weeks whilst doing a medical elective in the hospital, 10 minute drive from the motel. The rooms are big and very clean with hot water. Outside area for socialising is great! Best of all are the owners Lois and Marie who are so friendly really made our stay what it was. Thank you! Highly recommend to anyone planning on visiting Santo! xxx

I am a volunteer teacher in Vanuatu and I have just spent my 10 days of holidays on santo. We were recommended the hibiscus motel by numerous before arriving and thought we would check it out. We spent our first night in another motel of the same price and were amazed when we saw how much more we got and how much nicer the hibiscus motel was!
As well as comfortable beds, our own bathroom, our own kitchen in our rooms, there is also free wifi! The best thing about everything was the owners Marie and Louïs, they are the nicest people and organised buses and activities almost everyday.
As well as this the location of the hibiscus was perfect just a 1 minute walk from the main street but away from all the noise.
Overall I was amazed with the hibiscus motel and it really does deserve 5 stars in all areas especially service and value!
Thanks for a great stay and I strongly recommend you stay here for your next time in santo, I will be back!

Stayed here for 3 weeks for my medical elective. I can genuinely say this is one of the best places I have stayed in over my travels.

The rooms have everything you need to make your stay comfy and they are cleaned regularly. There is a nice communal spot between the rooms to chill out. The location is great, 2 minutes from the supermarket and town but off on a side road which means it's quiet.

Marie and Lois are just amazing, you really feel welcomed and at home. They are also great for giving any local information and organising anything you need.

Laundry is free and will come back all nicely folded! Wifi is also free and is pretty good, was able to Skype easily.

I can't recommend this place enough, not only for babydocs of course but for anyone staying short or long term in Luganville!
