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!

My wife and I stayed 5 nights in Casa de Bosque. The house was absolutely beautiful, set on a gorgeous property. You can open 6 doors and couple of windows in the bedroom and it's like you're luxury camping in the jungle. The kitchen and a small sitting area are outside, under cover, which was really cool. Heard and saw... More

We had a wonderful one-week stay in Casa Bromelia over New Year's. We had planned to stay at Geckoes last year, but our plans didn't work out and Tom and Zoe made a special effort to help us reschedule for this year. We have travelled extensively all over the world and Geckoes is a truly unique experience. On the property... More
