Went to Port Douglas with my son for 4 nights. Had the most relaxed and happy holiday there which started by us staying at the Hibiscus Resort. Our room was clean and comfortable and the resort was close to the Main Street with cafes, restaurants and other shops. Perfect location for anyone going to Port Douglas and I'd recommend it...

Great value hotel in a very handy location. Being so close to town meant the freedom to walk into the restaurants/shops without the hassle of having to wait (and pay) for shuttle buses to and from the resorts down the road. Our room probably had the worst view in the hotel (you get what you pay for) so we didn't... More

Hibiscus really is a tropical paradise. With 2 pools surrounded by tropical plants. A day spa. Really nicely fitted out rooms. A lovely spot to have your breakfast. Plenty of Webber Qs around if you wanted to cook your own BBQ. Bean bags in and around the pools for relaxing. Really close to town, but not on the main drag.... More

Having stayed at this Resort several years ago we rebooked. Unfortunately I mistook the description of the available accommodation and booked a studio apartment. This would have been excellent if we were going to trip around and use PD for a base but we were looking for a pleasing outlook from our suite. However we were able, with no fuss... More

Nice complex near centre to shops and high street. Designed in rain forest style in wood unique and different from other hotels. The rooms have living room, bedroom and and kitchen area, clean and comfortable. Some rooms are privately owned and you have to pay for WiFi but it is cheap. Reception staff helpful.

We have stayed in a few place in Port Douglas and Hibiscus is one of our favourites. Excellent location, friendly receptionists. Two pools with plenty of sun Loungers and shade. Reasonably priced with comfy beds and good wifi. Highly recommend

My wife and I stayed in a one bedroom unit for 5 nights in late April 2016. We really enjoyed our stay at Hibiscus and would definitely stay there again. Although now a bit dated, the room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The room overlooked the pool and had an adequate kitchen to prepare... More

Great location. Very close to town – everywhere is just a few minutes’ walk. And for the beach oriented, the swimming net if directly down the street. Those staying out-of-town in the large resorts have a 2-3 kilometre walk to get the ‘safe’ swimming area of the 4 mile beach, quite important in ‘stinger’; season. We stayed in a studio... More

Wish we had booked to stay longer was the only down side! Staff was great from start to finish. Loved the theme and deco of the place. Room was spacious with balcony and very clean and tidy. If we have the chance to go back to Port Douglas we would definitely book this hotel.

This spa resort is ideally located just 100 metres from the vibrant Macrossan Street and 300 metres from famous Port Douglas Four Mile Beach and the Reef Marina.

Experience the adventures of a lifetime - diving, sailing, snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, safaris, bushwalks and eco tourism tours in the Daintree Rainforest. At the end of your exciting day come back to the tranquil Hibiscus Resort & Spa to relax and soak up the tropical ambience. Lush tropical gardens swirl around your balcony.
