“BANQUET HALL AT HIBISCUS HOTEL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Our group used the banquet hall at Hibiscus Lodge Hotel for our Gala Dinner & Dance in November. We enjoyed ourselves very much. The service that we received from the staff was great. They were very attentative to our needs. The food that was served was so tasty. We were glad that is was buffet style with many choices. The salad, main course and desserts were all very good. Excellent venue for our group. Thanks to all of you at Hibiscus Lodge.

The Hibiscus Lodge Hotel is located on the water in the middle of Ocho Rios. It has absolutly great views. the balcony of the room is like an outdoor room. It has a table, chairs, chase lounge, electrical outlets and a spectacular view of the ocean. the rooms are clean and comfortable. The Almond Tree resturaunt is located on primisus. It is a great place to eat any time of the day. Last night I had the porkchops coverd in a banana and rasin sauce that was delicious. all of the staff are very friendly and helpful.

I visited Ocho Rios for a seminar and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It was clean and the staff was friendly and it was a suitable location for the venue.

The hotel is not an all inclusive resort so one should not expect that type of environment but it has some very good ammenities: lovely view of the beach, a good restaurant on site [though the portion sizes are quite small compared to most European and US meals]. It is safe, there is free wifi on the whole compound and a great effort is taken to keep the place clean.

Some things you may want to note: there is no phone in the room, the front desk is not 24 hrs, the town of Ocho Rios is a walk away if you should want to venture there. I think a great effort has been made to general upkeep though a keen eye will note that some of the areas have seen the fairer side of life.

My final take is if you are looking for a good place to stay and you are working on a budget you should give it a shot.

Room Tip: Choose a room that overlooks the sea

I've been coming here since 1990. I've always enjoyed the Hibiscus Lodge!

I've eaten here dozens of times over the years and the food is always good. The ambiance is lovely, and I've even been in a wedding here.

The Hibiscus Lodge is a real treasure.

My Fiance and I visited the Hibiscus Lodge Hotel for a three nights stay during his vocation to the Island. We really would have preferred an all-inclusive at the time we were booking but had to opt for something else. We were not dissappointed. The Lodge was absolutely gorgeous.

The scenery was breath-taking from the front to the back. The staffs were friendly and nice from the front desk to the life-guards. The food was to die for and the kitchen staff was even lovelier. We really didn't miss the all-inclusive. It allows us to enjoy the walks on Main Street up to the square.

The rate is extremely affordable for such comfort.
We really look forward to coming back again. The best little hotel in Ocho Rios

I just got back from a few days at the Hibiscus Lodge. I had stayed there about twenty years ago and wondered how it would now measure up. It was great. Rooms 14 & 15 are perched on the cliff with spacious adjoining verandahs. It is worth the extra to stay in the cliffside rooms. The full breakfast that was included in the room rate was delicious and extensive. It was hard to leave.

The only negative is that the once beautiful coral reef has seriously deteriorated. While I saw many fish while snorkeling, there were very few of the beauiful corals that I recall from years past.

I didn't have a hard time finding it. Just go to the city center and go to the east. You'll first see a sign for the Bar with swings. (They are fun, though tricky if you've had too much rum. )

Room Tip: Rooms 14 & 15 and other cliffside rooms are worth the extra expense and have huge verandahs over...

While visiting my partners family in Jamaica we decided to take a few days for ourselves in Ocho Rios. We spent a lot of time looking for a decent place to stay because most of the hotels in the area are large "all inclusive" resorts which charge around $400 a night which we were not interested in paying. We discovered Hibiscus on here and after reading a few of the reviews we decided to take a chance and book and I must say I'm so glad we did.

I've seen some people on here say that it's difficult to find but this is far from the truth, it's actually just off the main town centre road but luckily at the quiet end. The grounds themselves are beautiful and well kept and we spent a few of the mornings wondering around taking in the lovely flowers. The grounds are only second however to the stunning sea views. Hibiscus is most happily situated right on a small cliff and most parts of the hotel benefit from some gorgeous sea views. The hotel itself is made up of about 4 main buildings, and we stayed in a sea view room which was simply decorated but clean and practical for our needs. Do not expect any frills, but everything you need for a pleasant trip is provided (i.e. towels and extra sheets). We had a fabulous view and for us that was the main highlight. Yes you will get bitten, but hey...you're in the tropics GET OVER IT!

There is a great pool if you don't fancy a trip to the beach and the hotel offers you snorkeling facilities for a small fee which we made use of, better still you can access the sea from the hotel as they have a lovely jetty which you can hang out on or swim or snorkel. They also have a great tennis court and offer lessons at a price.

The service at Hibiscus is also a highlight. The staff are low key, in that they don't interfere or bother you, but if you need assistance they will do whatever they can to help you. We had an issue with our balcony door and we told them after we checked in and it was sorted the very next day. Breakfast at Hibiscus was also a highlight with wonderful traditional Jamaican fare which is accessible to all - we highly recommend the escovitch fish!

All in all fantastic value for a wonderful location and a more than comfortable stay. Ocho Rios itself is an expensive resort town but at least at Hibiscus your money is well spent!

Room Tip: Always try and get a sea view!
