We traveled to Costa Rica for our daughter's Make A Wish Trip at the end of May. After enduring a year of therapy for a brain tumor (yes kids get cancer!), her wish was to see and hold a sloth. What better place to fulfill a wish like that than staying at Geckoes Lodge. Zoe and Tom (owner's) went out... More

We've stayed at Geckoes 3 times now - and would love to get back there again. Can't recommend it highly enough. There are 2 houses - the larger 2-bedroom 'Casa Bromelia' is perfect for families and is elevated above the canopy for excellent bird, butterfly and sloth watching. Watching the garden/jungle come alive in the morning with a pot of... More

My husband and I stayed here in the Casa del Bosque for 4 nights in April 2014 for our honeymoon. The house is as gorgeous as the pictures suggest and it's very private. We made good use of the kitchen for breakfast and lunch, then ate out in the evening. Malbec for steak was especially good. Geckoes Lodge is a... More

Staying at Geckoes Lodge is a truly magical experience. Nestled in the lush jungle you live in an open air, serene lifestyle with beautiful amenities. The layout of our "casa" allowed us to sit each morning watching the jungle come to life around us. Vibrantly colored birds would fly right up to us while we sipped our morning coffee. The... More

Just completed a 3 week tour of the P.V. Talamanca region, which began with 6 nights at Geckoes. My wife and I were in the single bedroom "Casa del Bosque". It was as comfortable and as beautiful an accommodation as we have ever stayed in. Our first time staying in a Rainforest of this nature, we couldn't have felt more... More

The first night we stayed in the Bromelliad Casa, this one has the most comfortable layout. The kitchen is well stocked and it is a pleasure to cook there, although the town is close only a few minutes where there are lots of great places to hang out and eat. Close to cocles beach, the property is a great location... More

Dear Zoe and Tom, we wanted to thank you for your warm hospitality and beautiful place that just makes for a perfect honeymoon escape. A wedding is a pretty exciting but tiring event too, and we were looking for a tranquil, quiet, private, secluded place close to the beach and near to the forest - and that exactly describes your...

This is a delayed review (we actually visited in March of 2014), but heartfelt nonetheless! My husband and I loved staying at Geckoes, and while we both got quite ill during our stay (through no one's fault but our own), Zoe and Tom were lovely to us and helped us with medication recommendations, etc. You really are in a tropical...

My wife and I stayed here for two weeks on our honeymoon and loved it! It is tucked away in a beautiful jungle setting. The service was excellent and everybody was incredibly nice and helpful. Would definitely return!
