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

Well, Tom and Zoe, we are back at home in the tundra, and while Geckoes already feels like it was a dream, it's one for the books. Thank you. Details have already been so accurate in the reviews, but I thought I would add my two cents (or more). It took us about 6 hours to get to Geckoes via... More

Geckoes Lodge is absolutely stunning! We stayed seven nights in the one bedroom house, Casa Del Bosque. The Property: The houses are all set apart throughout the lush grounds of the property and you really do feel like you have the place all to yourselves. The landscaping is well cared for but not overly manicured with well placed and beautiful... More

We were so excited when we booked our lodging at Geckoes, but the reality FAR exceeded our expectations! We spent 9 days including Christmas in Casa Bromelia and were truly sad to leave! Tom and Zoe have created a truly special haven and we feel blessed to have experienced the rewards of all their hard work! They are the nicest... More

My husband and I took a two week trip to Costa Rica and Panama in November for our one year anniversary. Geckoes was our favorite part of the trip. Tom and Zoe were so kind and accommodating.

I knew Geckoes Lodge would be special from reading the reviews but it was so much better than I could have imagined. My sons (19 and 14) and I spent 10 days in Casa Bromelia last July and we all loved it and promise ourselves that we'll go back. Tom and Zoe were so friendly and went out of their... More
