Stayed for 5 nights, good location,just beside D'Mall, mini market and walking distance to beach. Valuable price for room with air cond and ceiling fan. Take the staircase to 5th floor terrace, where you can see "Sunrise" and watching the night sky. Superb staffs... keep us entertaining and assist us for tour package. The property is located quite hidden, but... More

Isla Gecko is at Station 2 area and it does not have direct access to the beach but the beach area is only 5 minutes walk. Most of the budget accommodation in Boracay are located next to residential areas so while I was there I can smell home cook food from across the lane and I woke up to children... More

We had a wonderful stay in this hotel. Clean and spacious room with 2 queen size beds with a superb beach view on the terrace. The location is perfect just 2 mins. walk to a famous De mall, supermarkets, restaurants and banks. A minute walk to white beach. Safe and quiet place to stay. It's also ideal for families. The...

Stayed at Isla Gecko for 3 days 2 nights on Boracay. It is not right on the beach, you do have to walk about 3 minutes to get to the beach. Most of the walk is through dmall. Especially when entering from the street. After that the only trips we made were to the beach. Was pleasantly surprised by the... More

Pros: next to dmall and lots of reataurants, 1 minute walk to beach, markets nearby, clean hotel, spacious, friendly staff, free water from dispenser. Cons: alley leading to hotel is bad, sometimes lots of puddles, lots of rocks as there is much construction going on. Summary: despite the alley, i'd stay there again because of the great location, right in... More

I stayed at this small hotel for 18 nights. it's located close to the main shopping area (DMall) and is located down a lane that was in the process of getting resurfaced. So at that time it was a bit of struggle to wheel your luggage over the shrapnel..It's close to the beach about 3 mins of navigating your way... More

I stayed here with my travel buddies all from around Asia during the Laboracay Day! Six of us stayed in this hostel. In terms of value for money, this affordable hostel has it all. Design wise, it is a bit outdated and old. But hospitality and in getting for what you pay, it is decent. You can go out and... More

Stayed here a few years ago and the place has since undergone a change of ownership. If your looking for " no frills" accomodation that is clean and in a good location this may well suit. It's down a somewhat dingy lane but I never felt unsafe even in the early hours of the morning. It's a 3 to 4... More

Don't expect a high class resort for the amount you're paying! But this is definitely worth they stay! Tucked in a corner just beside D-Mall, it is quiet and surprisingly clean. Not forgetting the friendly staff who never fails to greet us every morning and attend to our late night requests! Definitely value for money!
