“Cheap and Good”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Stayed in this hotel over the new year.

Room was a little old and dark plus loads of mosquitoes,but those are the only major negative points.
Other than that, staff were friendly, neighbours were friendly, breakfast could be consumed in the café or served right outside your room.
I really liked the garden which is attached to the room.

Stayed 2 nights, nice garden setting. Helpful and attentive staffs. Room rates are reasonable (1800 pesos), value for money.
Quite near the airport and city proper. Taking a trike to the city proper will cost only 20 pesos for 2 pax.

Poor wifi signal in rooms though, had to go to lobby or restaurant just to connect. .

We stayed three nights at Hibiscus Garden, and found it to be a pleasant refuge from otherwise unremarkable Puerto Princesa. The town is a jumping off point for other places on Palawan, and has few sights of its own, so hotel location is not critical.

Hibiscus Garden is a bit out of town, but near the airport, which probably matters more, and offers free airport pick up and delivery, a good benefit. The center is a 20-peso tricycle ride away; the intercity bus terminal should set you back 100.

Hotel buildings and vehicles are clean and well maintained, and the grounds are well-tended. There is an open air restaurant, but breakfast is not included. The rooms are arrayed around an informal garden. Each has its own table and chairs as well as a hammock just outside.

The rooms are spacious, but the lighting could be better. The beds are comfortable, the AC strong and the bathroom functional. Service is attentive and helpful. Rooms are made up every day. Prices are a tad high for what you get, but not outlandish.

As in most Asian lodgings, WiFi is weak and only really works in the hotel lobby.

If you have to lay over in Puerto Princesa, you are unlikely to find a better place to do it.

This was one of the nicest places we have stayed in. Rooms were immaculate, beds comfortable, nice TV's and decent Wi-Fi connections.
Bathrooms were spacious with hot water for showers. As an added bonus, they had the refrigerated stocked with water, beer, soft drinks, etc. Prices for these was minimal. Staff was wonderful and customer service was excellent. The breakfast choices were all good and plenty to eat. They arranged our Underground River tour which we enjoyed. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a bigger room. It's worth the extra $15.00

Stayed here for 1 night before we had to catch a flight the next day.
The rooms are big, clean and convenient.
There is a Big garden in the middle between the rooms and every room has its own hammock and chairs.
The staff is very friendly.
Breakfast was very nice as wel!
A tricycle to town is around 20 php.
Very much recommended!

This is a really a nice place to stay. The staff were very friendly, room was huge and hammock outside was ideal. The surrounding settings were picturesque. Well priced and good proximity from the airport, would definitely recommend staying here.

Good food at the restaurant - must try the prawn dish.

Rooms were decent and affordable. we planned to only crash for the night before taking off and it was worth it.

Very helpful staff. Truly enjoyed our stay. Convenient as it is very close to the airport (7 mins)

Best Regards,
Renuka & Tirthadeep

Room Tip: Rooms at the far end are recommended for better privacy
