Cottages were lovely, staff were really friendly and helpful, food in the restaurant was really good. We also did a scuba diving course, which was really great and really well run. Would recommend to friends.

This was my 4th visit to Action Geckos and it was great as always. Michele is the perfect host. The staff is just amazing. The food was fantastic, as well as our day trip to Mantigue Island. I'll definitely come back a 5th time.

This is by far the only place that makes me feel part of the family! <3 I chose this place to stay even though it was slightly out of my budget but coz it came highly recommended through Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor.

The place itself is great. The location, the building(s), the staff and, simply, what you get for your money is just great. Unfortunatly I have to say that it didn't live up to its name, namely the part that says "Action". When I was there they couldnt arrange any of their island tours because of road construction, and rain. Strangely,... More

Very nice place, and nice people! What I would like to feature was the romantic candle lit dinner by the beach we had. Not to mention the beautiful sunset while waiting for the dinner to be prepared. Highly recommended for couples who thinks that romantic dinners by the beach are only in TVs! The resort will make it real and... More

Camiguin Action Gecko has everything you need: nice location, excellent food, perfect service. Needless to say, everyone in the place - from Michelle, who runs the resort, to the waiters (especially are Maya) - are warm, always helpful, and vibrant. They make you feel at home. The place is quaint and quirky which adds to the good experience. And of... More

We stayed at Action Geckos about one year ago and are glad to see on TA that the resort appears to be doing well post Typhoon Haiyan. We chose to visit Camiguin on our trip to the Philippines because we wanted to get away from places that are over crowded with tourists and experience something a little bit more secluded.... More

I was in the Philippines three times in 2013. I was in Action Geckos three times in 2013. I was welcomed back on a first name basis each time; the staff *simply* remembers your name.

If you are a snobby European who does not want to experience the Filipino culture and be secluded, than this place will be great for you. They do not serve even Filipino food.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Camiguin is one of those best-kept secrets that attracts divers and those "in the know". Diving is not 'my thing' but in this jewel of an island - still relatively unspoilt in comparison to Panglau Island - Geckos is the best. Why? Simply because of the foreign (Swiss/German) hands-on management that look after your every need. The personal touches from the attentive staff, and of course Ulrich and Michelle, are worth the money alone. Trips up the volcano etc are easily arranged, the rooms clean and the beach bungalows excellent. Food its international and the beach barbecues a great way of meeting the other guests. Go - but don't tell too many friends."Every island on the Philippines should have a place like this." – LonelyPlanetSightseeing/Attractions Tip: No swimming pool, but with Ardent Hot Springs only 3 km away, who needs one? Avoid Ardent Hot Springs at weekends unless you want to share one of the pools with 30 others. ... more   less
