We stayed at the Hibiscus for 5 days (Oct 9-13 2006) and were somehow dissapointed. We were in a Studio room and chose the daily towel change option. The Pro's: well located to go to the beach and main street where you can find the major stores and restaurants and it's pretty quite. The Con's: was probably nice 10 years ago but it needs some serious upgrades. The mattress was very old, the air conditioning was terribly noisy (but generated very cold draft). Although the staff was reponsive when you asked questions, they are not very friendly. I went to purchase a coffee one morning 30 min past the official breakfast time and although someone was there in front of the coffee machine, she told me I was too late... sorry!
The room: you can tell it had not been cleaned properly for months... lots of dust everywhere. Kitchen was well equiped. I agree with other reviews for the chairs by the pool... not enough available.
Overall, it was OK but if you expect more for the price you pay, you'll be dissapointed.
