beautiful location good service dirtiest room I have ever stayed
Left on 01/21/2014 for a stay in December 2013 | dbm
Reservations team great location brilliant, unit is ideally located to beach and great for young children but the room was filthy, absolutely filthy.
We were allowed to check in early so that may have played a small part but the grime in that place was from years of no cleaning. stained bedspreads, our feet were black 3 minutes after we showered from walking on the floor, I threw the broom out as it was black and matted up. Toilet had someone else's excrement on it, disgusting.
The owners are so broke or scabby they cant afford to buy new towels. They are I think $7.00 at Big W now. Ridiculous, the towels were old tatty and faded.
Will never stay there again purely based on the above.
Moved rooms and the next room was absolutely spotless so they must use different cleaners.
If thousands of peoples dirt and grime don't worry you then it's great. If they get new cleaners and gurney the entire unit and buy new linen I would highly recommend it.

We had a enjoyable stay at hibiscus 001. It was a little bit dirty and dusty but overall very pleasant. It would be nice to have some spare towels with kids and extra dish washing tablets as you are paying a lot of money. Thanks

The service was fantastic, people very friendly, our accommodation was perfect, the location was very close too everything.
Our daughter was married there, and we couldn't have been happier with the attention to detail.
I couldn't fault anything:)
Overall we loved Hamilton island. there are plenty of things to see and do, or just relax:)

Great apartment, great location, great island!
Left on 10/19/2012 for a stay in August 2012 | shawcat
Apartment was very spacious and well-furnished with a modern feel. The location was perfect, just opposite the beach and with a pool close by. Also near to the start point for walks in the hills, crazy golf, tennis etc.
We loved the golf buggy, being able to zip to the shops and restaurants by the marina. The pick up and collection from the service all worked well.
The apartment and island are not the cheapest, but as a family with teenagers we have a brilliant few days there and wished we could have stayed longer.
Lovely apartment in great location on the island.

Hibiscus 001 was a great place for our family to stay for a week on the island. It's very handy to the beach and resort pools, and has a great outlook over a grassy area for the kids.

Terrific Family accommodation
Left on 04/23/2012 for a stay in March 2012 | Vanessa
Great Family accommodation. Front lawn was great for the boys to kick the footy and play, as well as watching the birds. Great outlook/view.
Close to pools and beach. Buggy was a favourite addition for all of us!
Kitchen, high chair, trundle bed, laundry etc very useful.
Only problem was the little step leading out to the porch area was dangerous for the 2 year old as was the tiles when wet (rain). Actually was surprised by how many slippery surfaces there were around the whole resort, when it rained, surprised Hamilton Island has not implemented safer surfaces i.e. tiled paving near main reception.
Having said that we had a terrific holiday, easy to get to - flying to the island then easy transfers.
fun and relaxing

When we arrived we were greeted and taken to the apartment by very friendly staff where they explained about the island on the way and told us the best places to eat and site seeing.Our accommodation was very clean and spacious and close to the beach.The buggy was very useful for site seeing and getting around the island.We liked how everything was close by and felt comfortable allowing our children to walk around the island by themselves which allowed us to laze around and enjoy the sun.we would love to return again in the future.
relaxing and comfortable stay
Left on 10/18/2011 for a stay in September 2011 | Holidaymaker
The apartment was very comfortable and spacious, with good quality furniture and fittings. A spacious ensuite and walk in robe was a bonus. The 2nd bedroom had it's own bathroom which made sharing with an adult son an easy option. The buggy which came with this unit was a little old and in need of updating. The brakes were a bit dodgy and no seat belts were installed, which made travelling with small grandchildren difficult. Other apartments in this block had newer buggies. But apart from this, I would recommend this apartment with it's easy access to the beach and to the Reef View Hotel with it's heated swimming pool.

We really enjoyed our time on Hamilton Island and loved staying at the Hibiscus Lodge. It was confortable, in a good location and clean. We were very impressed with our concierge - John. He went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and hassle-free. The location near the beach and facilites meant that we utilised them. The only criticism is that the buggy has no seat belts. I was aware of this from reading similar reviews but had hoped that the owner would have acted responsibily by now and had them installed.
Will stay here again next time

My Family (mum+dad+2 young children) stayed for 5 nights at this apartment. We had a fantastic time and rated it as an excellent apartment. We will stay there again. Vatel service was excellent making the airport pick-up and drop off very simple - even with two young children in tow.
lovely family holiday
Left on 09/03/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | aspen76
Had a lovely holiday stay with our two kids a 2 year old and 6 month old. Apartment was as I expected based on other reviews. Location is brilliant - ground floor and super easy access to beach. Apartment had everything we needed. Not sure why they are described as "luxury"apartments as I think this would set some peoples expectations too high. The apartment is a comfortable basic 2 bedroom apartment. The valet service was great. One gripe was the portacot provided was not very good and had a plastic foot in the middle of the mattress section which pokes up. Uncomfortable for baby and we ended up propping the four corners up so the foot/support in the middle hung down. Considering you can get a decent portacot for $60 from aldi its probably time to upgrade it. Also there were no beach towels provided. Otherwise we had a fantastic week and I would recommend the apartment to other families so long as they didn't expect luxury.

We stayed in March this year (2011) for a week at Hamilton Island staying at the Hibiscus apartments. We stayed in 001 which was a newly renovated two bedroom, ground floor apartment. It had everything we need, full kitchen, two bathrooms, two tv's with austar, beach towels and of course the apartment comes with a buggy. This is very handy as most of the restaurants and shops are on the marina side of the island over one very big hill!! The ground foor was perfect for my son, who was able to play on the grassed area near our patio. The apartment is also close enough to be able to walk to Catseye Beach, the Bouganivllia Pool and the Pool Terrace restaurant at the Reef View Hotel.
We have previously stayed at Hamiltion Island in the Whitsunday Holiday apartments when our son was just over one. We found it very difficult to get around the island without a buggy and they are quite expensive to hire, $80 day! They have buses running, but it was very hard with a child, pram and nappy bag. This time with the buggy included it was fantastic. We could do what we wanted, when we wanted...and much more freedom.
While we were on the island, my husband did a fishing trip and caught a fish that we were able to cook up on the BBQ on the patio. We also did a day trip on the Banjo Paterson. It was a great way to see Whitehaven and Chalkies beaches...nothing bets turning the motor off and sailing!!!
We ate at the Manta Ray cafe, the Marina Tavern, the Pool Terrace Restaurant and all were great. The pizzas at the Manta Ray Cafe were our favourite. We also had breakfast with the koalas twice, which was excellent. It was a buffet with a great selection of hot and cold food.
We did sunset cocktails on one tree hill on our last night. Even though the sunset was not the best, we had a great time. Cocktails were delicious!!
We had the best time and can't wait to go back :)
enjoyable and relaxing
Left on 08/30/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | Clare
The service is very good on checkin and out. We liked the appartment, it was spacious and good for small children with grassed area outside. However the floor was dirty, there were old undies in the cupboard and we had to move furniture to be able to use the draws. It is close to pools, beach and hotel restaurants although the breakfast was very expensive. It was great to have the buggy which you needed to get around to the marina, but disappointed that it had no seatbelts as many other buggies did and would have been much better with children. We enjoyed our stay and would choose this appartment again.
The best holiday ever!

We've done a fair bit of travelling as a family, but this was sensational.
A calm arrival to a clean, tidy, modern appartment.
The service and help from our contact person was wonderful, nothing was a trouble at all.
The whole experience was relaxing but entertaining with plenty for the family to do.

Loved Hibiscus 001. it is great for families as it is spacious with two tv's and ground floor makes it safe. Great outdoors area for kids and lovely comfortable bed for us. Was concerned about being on the corner might be noisy but was pleasently suprised- it was fine. Some basic toys for games for kids would have been great but otherwise - fantastic. Will definately book it again :-) thanks.

Disappointing to the extent of becoming comical
Left on 04/02/2011 for a stay in June 2010 | Jeanette
When we arrived at te apartment, there was somebody else's washed laundry in the washing machine. Can you believe that??
The dinner set comprised of 3 plates & 2 bowls as the remaining cutlery / crockery were locked in a broken dishwasher that could not be opened or repaired during our entire stay!!
Downlights didn't work in the bathroom
Toaster was broken and had to be replaced.
Dvd had to be tuned and did not work until someone came to tune it in for us.
The entire stay was a debacle and we saw more of the people who looked after the property that we did of our whole family - it was an appalling experience and no compensation was offered other than a very apologetic property manager who who described us as "very unlucky" - what an insult! As for 'constructive' comments - how about doing a thorough inspection before checking someone in??? Pretty basic, isn't it!

Relaxing Family Friendly Stay at Hibiscus
Left on 04/01/2011 for a stay in September 2010 | stgrace
Often travelling with children, even to a tropical paradise can be stressful. We found staying at Hibiscus 001 very relaxing as the children could step out of the apartment and play on the grass area. We didn't have to compete with crowds for our meals if we didn't want to and the beach and main pool were a short walk away. The apartment had plenty of room and was extremely comfortable. It was very pleasant in the evening sitting on the balcony watching the sunset over the ocean. When we go to Hamilton again we will definately be asking for Hibiscus 001 again.
Nice but Filthy
Left on 04/01/2011 for a stay in April 2010 | John Gorringe
I'm a real estate agent in Wa and I felt sorry for the owners who had obviously spent money up grading the unit some years ago. Primarily for the reason their investment had not been well maintained do to the obvious short comings of the ongoing "pooled" management.This revolved around internal fixtures either being broken, loose, not working efficiently or filthy. ie cockcroaches in dishwasher along with all other areas of cleaning being neglected apart from bathrooms and toilets.We had to insist the unit be cleaned again as the bed linen appeared not to have been changed prior to us taking occupancy. Sheets crumpled and hair in beds in both main and single.Linen press that most probably should be locked looked like a "dogs breakfast"
and contained dirty tea towels,towels and sheets. In summary the young staff who are friendly and efficient with the meet and greet side of things are not trained in the art of efficiently cleaning the units and reporting damage and short falls in the inventory.For the tariff charged one would expect a lot better. On initially walking into the unit you think it's great.(modern, spacious and a pleasant outlook and feeling. On a closer examination you quickly change your mind.
Best family holiday location on the island
Left on 03/31/2011 for a stay in December 2009 | S Kauppila
We travelled with young children who are used to wide open spaces so the ground floor location was ideal. The apartment was very close to the beach, lagoon pool and other resort facilities. The golf buggy is essential for trips to 'town'. The apartment was very nicely decorated and had a dishwasher. The only thing I missed with little ones was a bath, but the laundry trough was a good substitute.
Great ground floor apartment - perfect location with kids!

Would stay here again. Apartment was great with young children. ground floor was great, opening onto grassed area. Perfect location, across from beach and close to pools. would stay here again. Only concern was that buggy had no seat belts.
Suitable Family Holiday accommodation
Left on 03/31/2011 for a stay in October 2009 | Sue
A nicely decorated 2 bedroom unit based on the ground floor, so access with a pram is very easy. Verandah leads out to a lovely grassed area which is perfect for kids to play ball on. The apartment is on the end of the block beside the road. It can be a little noisy when golf buggies and buses are using that road when you wish to go to sleep at night. There is no bath so bathing kids must be done in a shower. Pick up and drop off from the airport was excellent. Staff were very helpful. A convenient and comfortable unit to stay in.

You are greeted at the airport by friendly staff, escorted to your apartment and given a brief overview for anything you may be needing during your stay. The accommodation was modern, comfortable and very clean. I wish my bathroom at home was as big, and that was just the ensuite. Great location, close to beach and pools, lovely view. Excellent for children and adults alike. Having access to your own buggy for the entire stay was fantastic and a huge cost saving. After a great day out on the reef or a tour the last thing you want to do is walk back up over the hill from the port. If you do not enjoy this holiday it must take a lot to please you.
