“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We have been at Hibiscus Lodge in February in a room with sea view. Gorgeous view! The staff was also very helpful and nice. The hotel is at walking distance from downtown Ocho, and most important, the reef in front of the hotel has some beautiful fish. Food at the restaurant could be better but this is not a problem, just go to Fisherman's beach and ask for Lobster Dave, the food is divine there. Ibiscus is also at 3 minutes walking distance from a beautiful sandy beach. We highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with sea view, totally worthy!

If you want a taste of real Jamaica you simply cannot beat Hibiscus Lodge. The ocean view rooms give a breath taking view which is absolutely worth the extra cost. Our room (no 14) was beautifully clean and the large balcony was fantastic! The food at Hibiscus is exceptional ... the Jamaican breakfast is simply the best!! The staff are friendly and extremely helpful and made our stay ... and Christmas ... one we will never forget :) It was my son's first trip to Jamaica and we will be definitely going back to Hibiscus in 2013!!!

I stayed at this hotel during the weekend after Thanksgiving and had a great time. The room was very clean and comfortable. The grounds are absolutely beautiful: from the flowers, to the birds, to the landscaping. The bathroom was nice, white, clean, and spacious! And the view from the balcony was breathtaking.

The location of the hotel was perfect. This was my first time in Ochi and we were close to everything. Island Village (shopping area) and Margaritaville are about a 5 minute drive away. And Dunn's River Falls is about a 10 minute drive away. We went to both and had a wonderful time; especially at Dunn's River Falls. There are lots of places to eat. There is a restaurant on the property, but we only went there once for breakfast. We had the continental breakfast which was very good. My favorite was the cheese and fresh fruit!

Overall, this is a lovely, quaint, hotel and I've already suggested it to family members. I'll definitely be back. The staff as well as the owner were very nice and welcoming. And special note to all the future brides....perfect location for a wedding and/or honeymoon!!

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.
