Hibiscus on the Beach
Reviewed 15 December 2010

My husband and I spent 3 nights here for $195 a night. The ocean views were absolutely magnificent and the service was good. The apartment itself, however, was tired looking with an uncomfortable lounge, and the carpets and windows were dirty. Queen bed was comfortable with views all around. I felt the price was on the steep side for what you get apartment wise, but I would recommend this place for the views alone - truly breathtaking.

Reviewed 28 September 2010

Stayed in 2 self contained bed unit on beachside. Absolute beachfront - dont even have to cross a road. Has bath tub, fully outfitted kitchen and outside heated outdoor pool as well as bbq for guest use. Very very inexpensive for what you get . Admittedly building not new and rooms small by Aussie standards but ok for Europe travellers. Very clean and likeable manager. Ideal for travellers on a budget but book ahead as rent rate a bargain

Reviewed 27 March 2010

Hotel was inexpensive considering it was right on the beach. There are 2 apartments on each floor, one on the road side and one on the beach side. We were on the road side and it was super noisy. Our friends were on the beach side and it was much quieter and much nicer. The location was great, but there is NO parking around if friends come to visit, though there is secure parking for one vehicle per unit. The managers of the apartment block are absolutely lovely and couldn't do enough for us. Don't think I would go back but if you are after reasonable accommodation right on the beach it is great.
