From the moment we arrived at Geckoes, Tom and Zoe made us feel welcome and right at home. They really went out of their way to ensure our honeymoon was a great experience, recommending their favourite restaurants and the most beautiful beaches in the area to visit. They are so easy to talk to and happy to help with any... More

My kids cannot stop talking about this place!! Kaia (turned 5 at Geckoes) and Andrew (age 7) LOVED all the wildlife noises and the beautiful birds, bugs and creatures around this property. Everything you needed was there - well equipped kitchen for cooking just caught fish (call Wahoo Fishing for a charter), comfortable beds with netting, and the greatest location... More

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here in late August on recommendation from one of her co-workers. Tom and Zoe were excellent hosts! They gave us all of the information we needed to get around during our stay. We were literally surrounded by rain forest. It is very peaceful. Costa Rica has a very relaxed vibe. From the people...

We stayed 4 nights late August. Geckoes is two Amazing hardwood houses surrounded by spectacular rain forest landscaping. About a mile from the beach, so lots of quiet. The owners/hosts (Tom and Zoe) are really nice and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Many excellent restaurants are nearby. The sounds of the "jungle" at night are truly... More

I've been visiting Costa Rica for years now and this was the first time we tried the gecko out after hearing so many great things about it. The whole place was spotless and worth every dollar spent. The staff were great and helpful providing us with fabulous advice during our stay. I can not wait to get back and give... More

This was our third visit to Geckoes Lodge, which is unusual for us as we like to experience different holiday locations. However, Geckoes is worth revisiting due to its fabulous hosts, amazing location, tranquil pace of life and stunning wildlife. The lodge we stayed in (Bromelia) is set in extensive grounds and looks down upon a canopy of bananas, ferns... More

We stayed at Geckoes, in Casa Del Bosque, for just shy of two weeks. The house is beautiful as everyone has previously attested and lovingly cared for by Tom, Zoe, Tita and Jose. Tom and Zoe are always available yet never intrusive. It was a new experience for us to have daily cleaning (we almost always rent homes or apartments... More

This was our third trip to Puerto Viejo and we have stayed in numerous other Inns and properties before. We also have booked a number of Villas and properties throughout resort areas through VRBO, using TA as a guide. Tom and Zoe have only positive reviews and we agree with all of the positive comments that they have received credit... More
