Spent 6 days at Action Geckos which I would describe as very comfortable. The resort is well maintained providing nice furniture to relax. The staff stand out as very friendly and informative. They take the time to learn everyones name from the start which is nice. Breakfast included was great and the breakfast itself was fantastic. Would highly recommend.

Action Gecko's mainly caters to divers. But anyone who loves peace and tranquility will love this place. The staff are just wonderful. They go out of they're way to make you comfortable. Arno is the dive master there, and he and his wife are just great folks. I didnt catch the managers name, but he was very warm and helpful... More

I had an absolutely wonderful stay here. A bungalow right on the beach, fantastic yoga classes with the lovely Kaisa, and my first two scuba dives with Arno. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food very good. Kaisa and Arno also kindly organised a motorbike and driver for me to see the island, which was a fantastic... More

I always read blogs everytime I travel, to get insights, recommendations, do's and dont's, where to stay and eat, etc. I did not get to see Action Gecko's on the blogs I've read, until I browse here, TripAdvisor. I booked a room for 2pax for only 900 pesos. PROs: Artsyfartsy the rooms and T&B are clean the place is sorrounded... More

We stayed one night in a native style cottage near the beach. The place is very pleasant and friendly owners, however there is no TV due to their being no signal, which is common to resorts in that area. Also there is no AC. There are however plenty of mosquitoes, so take your repellant. Meals were slow to arrive but... More

We decided to stay here because of the comments we've read here in TripAdvisor and we are really grateful because we really did the right decision. The staff were really helpful and accomodating, the cottage was clean and neat. If you want to relax, you can stay at the hammock and read something. Truly a getaway. We'll be back here... More

We had a wonderful time at Action Geckos. The hotel is beautifully located and in the evenings you can witness a stunning sunset. The restaurant and staff are both terrific. Our room was large and faced the ocean, however during our 4 night stay we had cockroaches twice which hampered the experience slightly. Without the bug issue this hotel would... More

Although we didn't actually stay here (we would have loved to but backpackers rooms were full) We did however dive here, it was our first dive and we knew straight away when inquiring about rooms that we wanted to dive here. European staff greeted us and were very welcoming, giving us advice about other places to stay. Diving was incredible,... More
