As all of the reviews have stated, Tom and Zoe are great. Very tranquilo and yet still eager to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Grounds are very private and houses are new, clean, cool and comfortable. All the nicest touches and after seeing some other places around, the price is right...Lets remember people, your not in Nicaragua anymore!... More

My husband and I stayed at Geckoes for 2 weeks for our honeymoon in September and it was definitely the right choice - from the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, Tom met us on the drive and showed us around Casa Del Bosque, and they had very kindly given us a lovely fruit basket and...

A place like Geckoes Lodge has always been a dream in the distant for so many and I am so lucky to be able to say mine and my husband's dream came true! Geckoes Lodge is breathtaking! We arrived on a Sunday night not knowing what would be in store for us and when my husband and I arrived we... More

Geckoes is an extraordinary place - utterly breathtaking. Upon arrival, I was rendered speechless by it's incredible location, it is like landing smack-bang in the middle of the rainforest. We were welcomed by our faultless hosts, Zoe & Tom (more about them in a moment!) We were shown up a little path, to our "cabin", Casa-del-Bosque... cabin does not to... More

Gekoes has everything worked out very well except for it's location. Yes Tom/Zoe are excellent hosts, the environment they have designed, the bungalows and natural beauty are all excellent. Not cheap at all, but of a very high standard. I can say with some confidence it is probably the best place to stay in terms of quality of accommodation. And... More

Thank you Riddhi for taking the time to write a review. We are very pleased you appreciated the house and grounds but concerned we disappointed you on some points. We would like to take this opportunity to clarify a few things. When you were here the road was in indeed in the worst state we have seen for many years.... More

We stayed in Geckoes Lodge for 5 nights which wasnt long enough. We loved it!! We stayed in their 2 person apartment. We felt totally secluded in our little nest. Our favourite part was the plunge pool and all of the bedroom doors that opened out into the jungle so that we could watch the birds from bed in the... More

We chose Geckoes because of the beautiful pictures and I found out how close it is to The Jaguar Rescue Center, and my life goal was to hold a monkey. Geckoes surpassed all my expectations. Starting from booking Tom and Zoe were so helpful in answering all my random questions and even set us up with a driver from San... More

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
