thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days here. Excellent front office staff and a very welcoming breakfast smile each morning. We had a ground floor apartment close to the front pool. The room was very comfortable and ideal for a couple. Breakfast was included in our package and was excellent with a variety of fruit, muesli and breads. The apartment was in easy walking distance to the shopping precinct, beach and marina.It was a pleasant surprise to receive a vintage champagne in our package and the room wine list was very competitively priced with some wines cheaper than those at the local bottleshops. We plan to come back again next year.

Room Tip: lower levels near the front

We spent 5 nights here with our friends who had an apartment next door which was great. The breakfast was what I had expected although the area was a bit small when there were more than 4 couples. The lady running the breakfast area was excellent, very happy & friendly. The massage was great. We found the staff on arrival very helpful with where to go & what to do. The resort was in a great position easy walk to everything. The resort was well looked after, gardens were beautiful & all areas very clean. The rooms although not serviced were fine although a top up with soap & toilet paper would not have gone astray. With the special that we bought everything was what was expected except for the dinner at the hatted restaurant, the deal should have said that the meal was from a limited menu. This was a bit of a let down. The food was very good, no complaints there just would have been happier to know about the menu. We would stay again.

Hibiscus Resort is wonderful relaxed accommodation in a Balinese style, surrounded by beautiful gardens. It has 2 pools both with jet spas and complimentary breakfasts of cereals, fruits and beverages was part of our package.
The tiled rooms are very comfortable and the kitchens have sufficient cooking equipment.
The staff are very helpful and Post Douglas 'CBD' is one street away with everything in walking distance. We stayed for 10 days in March 2014 and had 1 wet day.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor overlooking the central pool. It was quiet and private with huge palms o...

A beautiful, compact resort only a short walk from the Main Street, marina and beach. No worries with over crowding here. The pool was heated and breakfast by the pool was very serene. The rooms were ideal for our family of 4 with interconnecting rooms giving us 2 of everything. The only negative is trying to have breakfast at peak time. The buffet area is very small and cramped but who cares when you are on holidays.

This property is not the 5 star property that I was expecting when I purchased through Luxury Escapes. After saying that the property was perfect for us. We had 2 apartments side by side on the lower level which overlooked the pool and the lush gardens. The location of the resort was in easy walking distance to everything the area has to offer. The rooms were not serviced or towels changed but you could arrange for servicing I believe for an additional cost. The resort did provide pool towels which you could use for day trips if necessary. The apartment is one bedroom with a 2 way bathroom, small kitchen and living area. The breakfast provided around the back pool was basic but was enough to see you through to lunch. If there were more than a couple of people serving themselves breakfast at one time you had to be very patient. The woman who was on breakfast duty was amazing.... she was bright and chirpy and nothing was too much trouble. The massages that were included in the package were great. I also visited the spa for a facial that Scott? The Spa Manager was my therapist and it was a truly amazing experience. We would definitely stay again.

This is my third trip here. Our family books in for two months because it's clean, comfortable, quiet, handy walking distance to shops, comfy beds, everything necessary for a relaxing stay and charming staff. I recommend Hibiscus to all my friends and I will certainly keep coming back! It's a Non Pretentious Zone - just what I want.
