We stayed here for 4 nights of our 3 week holiday in the Philippines. Everything was perfect from collection at the airport through to booking our onward travel to Port Barton. The rooms were spotless and the fittings in the bathrooms had a lot of thought and style. Showers were hot and rooms all have there own fridge. Beds were comfy and each room has its own hammock too.
The pool area was lovely to relax in and all beds and outside chairs are very comfortable.
The food here is OUTSTANDING, as is the service! We run a small hotel in the UK and my partner is a chef and we were very impressed with the fresh pasta, pizzas and seafood on offer here. All of which was cooked to a high standard. Don’t miss the tuna carpaccio! We ate here every night and didn’t bother trying anywhere else in case of disappointment. Cocktails were equally delicious and creative. Brilliant service from Sweet on the bar!
Reception organised a Honda bay tour for us which was a brilliant day out and ran smoothly.
Hibiscus is slightly ‘out of town’ but easily accessible by a cheap tricycle. For us it had everything we needed and we will be back!

We stayed for four nights with another couple, faultless service from wonderfully friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble from from start to finish, we enjoyed the traditional feel of the buildings and gardens and felt very comfortable.
Drinks and food in the restaurant were perfect and very well priced, we would also say the transfers and trips arranged with reception were well priced and ran faultlessly.
We had a problem on our last night with a faulty air conditioning unit in our room, although it was past midnight the management arranged a room change with no hesitation, excellent customer service.
A highlight of our visit to the Philippines was definitely the Hibiscus..

Hibiscus is, in our family’s opinion, the best place to stay in Puerto. We found this beautiful inn when we first arrived in Palawan back in 2017. As Americans adjusting to a new home in the southern region of the island, we occasionally needed a place where we could get away from our responsibilities and relax for awhile. Hibiscus was always amazing. We cannot say enough good things about the way we were treated by the hospitable staff and owners. It was always easy to book a room and they were always ready for us no matter how late we arrived. We would walk in the room and find hot water and coffee cups and all the bedding we needed. They were so thoughtful!

The rooms have all been beautifully updated. The air conditioning and fans keep the rooms cool and the hot water system is wonderful. These are both a big deal for foreigners like us! :-) The mattresses were comfortable, the bedding clean, and insects are really kept under control. To be fair, it is nearly impossible to keep all bugs away but Hibiscus does WAY better than most. I don’t ever remember seeing ants in the rooms - and we stayed in many of them. Every evening they lit mosquito coils outdoors and my wife and I enjoyed sitting outside just to relax spend time visiting.

The wifi service was adequate although not very fast on a mobile device. You can get better speeds if you sit on the comfortable sofa in the lobby or go to the restaurant.

The restaurant is top notch! We always got their pizza and it was amazing. Pasta and salad were also our favorites. Breakfast was so relaxing with fresh french press coffee and a variety of food combo options - Filipino, American, European, etc.

Hibiscus was our family’s retreat from the daily grind for the five years we lived there. In May, 2022 we had to say goodbye to Palawan and return to the States to begin a new career. If (hopefully “when”) we return for a visit, you can be sure we will visit our friends at Hibiscus.

Thank you everyone at Hibiscus for taking such good care of us during our many stays with you!

Andrew, Keren, and kids

We stayed there for almost a month while we were house-hunting. Our comments follow…

Food: very good, especially the pizza. They have a restaurant and bar on the premises that also includes room service and poolside service 😍

Rooms: very good. The rooms were cozy, clean, and modern. Their personal room safes were inoperable and require upgrade. However, we still felt very safe during our stay and had no reason to be concerned with leaving our valuables within our luggage. The staff were very nice and displayed integrity.

Safety: as mentioned above, we had zero concerns or issues with being safe. During the evening hours there is an on-site security guard roaming the property.

Parking: we parked our pickup truck on premises but be advised that there is very limited parking.

Costs: the daily room rate was approximately 500 pesos lower than two other hotels that we have stayed at in Puerto P. The overall experience by comparison was equal to or higher than other those two hotels.

Internet & TV: If you’re looking for a hotel that has great internet and tv service then from our experience you may find it difficult. We experienced 50% - 70% of little to no service of during our stay at this hotel as well as the other two. I’m unsure if these are problematic areas for hotels in Puerto but that’s what we experienced. Good luck with your search for those two features.

Pool: Excellent. The pool was always clean and warm especially for a pool that is located outside. 😍

Overall: Yes! 👏🏾 I recommend this hotel! The owner is very kind and family oriented. His staff was kind and valued us as customers.

Notre expérience pendant notre séjour s'est déroulée sans problèmes ni conflits. L'hôtel est magnifique et entretenu avec beaucoup de soin.

We are very happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed also our food:) Please note that we have been replacing all safety boxes since you came here.

The hotel shuttle picks you up from the airport. After a 5 minutes trip into some busy streets of Puerto Princessa, you arrive in a peaceful place.
During daytime, you can sip one of the delicious cocktails (The Gin & Tonic is one of a kind) while enjoying the swimming pool in the tastefully decorated garden. At night, the atmosphere changes with beautiful lighting.
The food is also excellent with a choice of pizzas and other delicious dishes. My favorites were the tuna carpaccio and the club sandwich.
The rooms are very nice, clean and offer all the comfort you need (Good mattress, functional bathroom, airco, ....).
After all, the surprise is the value for the money for the room, the food and the service. If you have to spend a couple of nights in Puerto Princessa don't go anywhere else.

I am a local here in Puerto Princesa City and is still very impressed by the overall ambience this exclusive garden has to offer. We had our wedding preparation and photo-video shoot here last May, and the management and staff could have not been more accommodating and friendlier. Almost as if they were family. Their rooms were more than spacious, their confined view is breathtaking, and a bonus of specialty food exclusive to their Garden Inn.

We highly recommend the place, if you are looking for a hideout that is accessible to the amenities of a City.

Big thumbs-up to team Hibiscus!

Set on a busy muddy street it is quite a surprise once you enter Hibiscus Garden Inn. The rooms are basic but clean and the staff very friendly. The pool and cafe really good serving great greats and food. The staff will make reservations for you and and really helpful with pick ups and drop offs. The only challenge we had was trying to pay the deposit on booking, multiple international transfers in multiple currencies after they’d given us incorrect accounts but we got there in the end and it was worth it.

I've been hearing such great comments about Hibiscus Garden Inn and it never disappoint me at all. I stayed for a whole week to pamper myself and well i made friends from the friendly staffs and even had number of conversation with the owner as well.

I never felt alone and lonely because of the great ambiance and i'm surrounded by smiling and approachable staffs. I even like how they make everything plastic-free and eco-friendly!

I must say that i'm really bringing my friends and family for my next visit here! Y'all should take a dip into their pool, it's so relaxing and immaculate. 💕✨

Both the hotel and the restaurant are very good. The staff, including the owners, are very friendly and make every effort to ensure that nothing is left to be desired.

In addition, we were kindly driven to the airport free of charge on our day of departure.

For breakfast I can recommend the fresh pancakes with the unique and incredibly tasty honey!

We loved staying at the Hibiscus Inn and would stay there again anytime.

Kind regards
Tim

We stayed for 2 nights in this beautiful and quiet place. Rooms are simple and tidy and overall environment is spacious and confortable. Bathroom is very clean as well as the rest. The place is set apart from the main road, so it is very peaceful and the atmosphere is great and relaxing.
The staff is super kind and helpful and the owner is always available to give you precious advice and support for any possible need.
It is definitely recommended for both couples and families as well as for group of friends.

Hi. You may book the Underground river tour upon arrival at the hotel. Though advance booking is an advantage since there are instances that permits are no longer available on certain dates due to big group bookings. You may contact Hibiscus Garden Inn directly through our mobile and website to book. Thank you and see you soon!
