Reviewed January 17, 2013

We stayed here for three nights and were very happy. The rooms were simple but had everything we needed. Breakfast was fine and the grounds of the hotel were well looked after.

We also organised a tour to the Underground River with them and were very happy with the service provided.

Would stay there again.

we booked this place because of the good reviews. We found it a nice place and the garden well maintained. We booked two rooms. My brother and family loved their pizzas. The rooms were clean and average. Not much to do there really. It's close enough to the airport and they give you free transfers. A tricycle to go around is handy. Good service and clean rooms. We weren't looking for much for one night stay. Hibiscus filled our needs.

We stayed here for two nights in early December. I was so glad I found the Hibiscus Garden Inn. Breakfast was outstanding, and Joy was an amazing host. Our room (a King with a private outdoor garden) was larger than we needed. The bathroom was clean and the water was hot (as long as you just used the hot shower and turned the temp of the tankless water heater to a desirable temperature). The AC was much better than expected. We even turned the thermostat up. It's just a short trike ride to amazing restaurants. I wish we had stayed one more day to enjoy the city. And, the souvenir shop had amazing, high quality items. One caveat. There is no pool, so if you require one, this is not the place for you. The Wifi worked in our room--if you stood close to the door, not so much near the comfy bed.

I stayed here for three nights, I got a nicer room in the back with the private outdoor garden in the back. Its a bit far from town (5-8 min trike) to the boardwalk but there is a sarisari right out front and the best place to each chicken dinner is just a few hundred yards down the road...breakfast was delivered to my room each morning and they would come around in the early evening asking what time I wanted it...They booked all my tours for me including the Honda Bay Tour, Underground River Tour, Firefly tour, and even my van ride to El Nido. Staff was friendly and helpful....AC is the quite not one of those stupid cheap box ac units stuck in the window...Wifi worked great..its close to the airport if that is important to you but if you want to visit the new mall plan on about 15 minutes to get there.

Room Tip: you can sit out front in the courtyard like everyone one else does or get the little bit higher pri...

Hibiscus Garden Inn made our Palawan vacation perfect! Excellent staff, great rooms, very good food. Highly recommended; value for money. The place is so relaxing; we could not ask for more.They had also arranged for our fuss-free tours. More power!

Room Tip: Go for queen or king rooms for couples; classic rooms for children (sharing)

We stayed here for 4 nights, and it was very pleasant. I think the best thing about it is the staff -- very helpful, no matter how many questions we asked. Make sure to ask things like how much the expected tricycle fare is from place to place (some of the tricycle drivers like to take advantage of tourists). Once you know that, the best way I found to pay them was to keep in mind what the regular fare the lady at the front desk told me it should be, and stuff the amount in the tricycle driver's hand, then turn around and walk away before he can protest :P). Anyways, the rooms were big. There is a restaurant, which we had breakfast at, and one dinner. Breakfast was decently priced, but we chose to go elsewhere for cheaper food for the rest of our meals. It's very pretty there, as the other reviewers said. Love the hammocks for each room. Love that you could order your breakfast the night before, so that if you had a tour the next day (and pickup times are usually early), you can set an alarm and have breakfast ready as soon as you walk in the restaurant. Close, but not too close to the airport. they will arrange airport pickup and dropoff for you. I wish I had gotten the name of the lady who was at the front desk most of the time. She was very friendly, and made sure we were comfortable and that all our questions were answered :).

Room Tip: Rooms are great! Even just the standard rooms are huge, I think the only difference, it seems is a p...
