This place really lives up to all the good TA reviews, from the pleasant and welcoming reception staff to the large clean and well presented rooms. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained and the restaurant was also well run and the food pretty good although a little on the pricy side for Palawan. Not much to add - just a great place to spend a day or two while in Puerto.

There is much to like about the Hibiscus Garden Inn.

What immediately strikes you upon arrival at the HGI is the warmth and agreeableness of the staff. They are so polite and ever willing to perform tasks for you to ensure that you have a comfortable and hassle-free stay. The desk staff will gladly book local tours, arrange for massages and make restaurant reservations for you, among other things.

Lush greenery, principal amongst which are hibiscus plants in varying stages of bloom, encompass the entire property, effectively creating a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. The room accommodations are comfortable with modern conveniences such as split type airconditioning, cable television, mini refrigerator, mini safe and hot shower. Those staying at queen and king rooms have the extra benefit of their own private gardens.

The HGI also operates a pizza-pasta restaurant on the premises. The pizzas are baked in a brick oven and can favorably compare with the best in Metro Manila. The pasta dishes are equally as good and complement the pizzas very well. Hopefully, they will add to their menu selection in the future. Breakfast is also served daily at the same place. Choices range from Filipino, American, European to Continental. As with the pastas and pizzas, the food is very good and reasonably priced.

The HGI is located less than ten minutes away from the airport and recommended dining establishments. Slightly further away is the city center. The HGI is a great starting point for one's activities both in and around Puerto Princesa.

The one thing I hated about my stay at the HGI was having to leave so soon.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Hibiscus Garden Hotel offers a relaxing ambiance--- quiet, homey and clean. The services from the staffs are also great. They are very accommodating! If i were to go back to Puerto Princessa I'd definitely check-inn again at Hibiscuss Garden Inn.

Very comfortable; clean and homely. But what differentiates this place is a great service attitude - everything was arranged with a smile

It is one of the best choices if you stay in Puerto Princessa, Palawan. Hotel has a beautiful garden with nice "italian" restaurant. Stuff is extremly nice, you feel welcomeness everywhere. Rooms are nice with A.C. and bright colors. Garden with rich vegetation and little tables with interesting images :) makes ambient even more special.
Just do not visit "white beach".. It is not worth it.. :)

Hibiscus Garden Inn, although located less than five minutes away from the airport, is a sanctuary of peace and tranquility. The fourteen rooms that constitute the inn takes up only a small section of a large compound that is otherwise full of trees and flowering plants. As a matter of fact, the accommodation section can hardly be seen as one enters the compound. Ethnic objet d’art dot the garden in an artistic manner. The rooms with a running porch are set around a rectangular courtyard, again full of flowering plants and more artifacts. The porch is nicely designed for casual lounging and includes a number of wicker hammocks. The four larger rooms have small private gardens at the back with a hammock. The rooms are large but simple, and the mattresses could be of better quality. However, in the surrounds are such that one does not spend too much time in the room, i.e. the aesthetics rules over creature comforts. Although the inn is located beside a main road, there is hardly any external noise due to the design and size of the grounds

There is a restaurant that is set in an open design at the other end of the compound. It serves only pizzas and pastas, complemented by a nice selection of drinks. The thin crust pizzas however, are of very good quality. The restaurant is another venue to sit and relax with friends and family. The staff is meticulously polite and helpful. The front desk seems to take care of any reasonable request with effortless ease. Hibiscus Garden Inn is an ideal place to relax and recharge in between the various activities one undertakes while in Puerto Princesa.
